Destination wedding + adventurous elopement / couples photographer

Hey there! I'm Chelsea, and documenting the adventures of besties in love is my jam! I love vibrant, fun images that tell the story of how your day really was. No over-posed images here, but I do give plenty of direction to make you feel comfortable to be yourselves, let loose, laugh, and dance your little hearts out - all in a flattering way.

I love epic wide shots in beautiful landscapes, those up close giggly moments, and creating real images that give you all the feels when you look back at them. If you like what you see and think my natural style would be a great fit for your wedding day or you're ready to go on an adventure for some amazing views, say hello!

LIVE in the moment

and make it beautiful.

Whether I'm working or cruising, you can usually find me in my favorite place - smack dab in the middle of the mountains and the ocean. I am obsessed with salty hair, sandy feet, and taking naps under the sun after surfing or scuba diving. I'm a frequent traveler, and I'd love to share my passion for the outdoors by adventuring with you, camera in hand, on the islands or wherever you are going!

hi, I'm Chelsea!

about me

"Chelsea was great from the very beginning. She made everything so easy on us which we really appreciated (especially planning a wedding thousands of miles away)! Her happy personality is super contagious and she made us feel so comfortable. She was so awesome at giving everyone direction during our wedding. Chelsea was always full of ideas and had us living in the moment."

"Hiring Chelsea to photograph my wedding was one of the best decisions I've made. I honesty can't say enough good things. She is incredible. Not only does she get those precise, fleeting moments (first look shot, anyone?), she captures all of the emotion and feeling of the day."

"Book this lady! You will not be disappointed. Chelsea took both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Chelsea’s work is bright, happy and I love how she captures real emotion and sweet candid moments. If the amazing photos aren’t enough for you, you also get to hang out with a super fun, flexible and hilarious person for an hour+. "

"She's personable, accommodating, and went above and beyond our expectations. She was easy to work with and gave us great guidance while taking the photos, but was unobtrusive at times when that was important. The real proof is in her photos. They are beyond amazing."

"We cannot say enough good things about Chelsea! Hiring her for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. She is personable, professional and clearly has a passion for what she does. She was more than willing to get hit by an ocean wave to get an absolutely STUNNING photo that we adore. She clearly captured each and every moment of the day and it is such a joy to look back at the pictures and relive our big day."
