So - you're going for it. You're hopping on a flight to Hawaii to say "I do" in paradise! Maybe you decided to ditch the traditional large wedding, or covid had other plans in mind for ya. Either way, intimate weddings, elopements and adventures are my jam.

Lemme just say YASSSS, because I love couples who are planning a day that celebrates them. And I'm so here for it.

Intimate weddings and elopements are unique. You planned a day with just your closest friends and family - or heck maybe it's even just your significant other. You need someone who understands them, someone who can join in on the fun and blend in with the fam. Not a stranger. Someone more like a friend.

That's me! I specialize in intimate destination weddings and adventurous elopements. I take limited bookings each month to ensure that I'm able to serve you. Whether that's by planning the hike for your elopement, recommending the best vendors on the island, helping you create a timeline for your day or just sending you memes on Insta. If this is speaking to your soul, you can relax. You found your photog and adventure buddy! Let's do this!


Ohhhh I'm glad you asked. Adventure sessions kiiiiind of set my heart on fire. We can go on an epic hike to see Hawaii from my fav view of all time, or we can frolick at different locations. You don't wear your cute outfit going up the hike, and there will be time to cool down, refresh, and change before we start snappin' pics. 
Hiking not your thing? I have 1 hour beach sessions available, too!

question 04 : What is an adventure session?

You will be able to download your high-res images directly from your gallery. Feel free to share the link with family, friends, co-workers, strangers on the street, your barista... you get the gist.

question 03 : how do we get our photos?

I love sending out sneak peeks, and I guarantee wedding/elopement delivery within 30 days of "I do" and portraits within 2 weeks of our session date.

question 02 : How long until we get our photos?

This question makes me more excited than Stanley on Pretzel day!
I require 30% down for weddings + elopements, and $250 down for portraits to reserve your date.

question 01 : How can we book you?

At the end of the day, I am an artist and ya girl has to breathe to be inspired! I also give my ALL to my couples, so spacing is limited. On average I only schedule 3 weddings, 3 elopements and 3 portrait sessions per month.

question 08 : how many weddings/sessions do you book a month?

I LOVE making people feel comfortable in front of the camera, that's when the magic happens!
I take the time to get to know you guys well before the session, and I have a fun couples questionnaire to realllly get into the details. You guys show up in love, and I will handle the rest!

question 07 : I'm nervous about taking photos. what do you suggest?

It's been my full-time job for over a decade! Phew, time flew by. I majored in photojournalism, worked at newspapers and magazines, and had a brief stint as a motocross photographer (whaaaa?? feel free to ask more about that!), but I have focused on couples photography for six amazing years!

question 06 : how long have you been a photographer?

Yes! I am 100% here for you. Your wedding day comes with a lot of moving parts and I am happy to help you piece them together in a stress-free way!

question 05 : can you help me with my timeline?

"I am OBSESSED with Chelsea! We received our full gallery last week and can't stop looking at it. Not only are the photos phenomenal, but Chelsea is also an absolute joy to be around. She's fun, on top of it, and a calming presence. She was able to capture the feel and spirit of our wedding in such a visceral way, I'm so glad we will be able to take a look whenever we want to relive the day! Our family and friends can't stop raving about them either, which just goes to show how above and beyond they are."

"Chelsea was such a fun person to just hang out with. We did the adventure package where she took us on a beautiful hike with EPIC views of the ocean and cliffs and then down to a beach where we got to get in the sand and ocean. She was so good at giving direction and catering to our personalities. "

alisha + Leon

"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."


"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."

Haley + Chris
