Consider me your:
Unofficial maid of honor
Hiking guide
Vendor matchmaker
And heck, sometimes even officiant

I make sure you are taken care of every step of the way.

Maybe you decided to ditch the traditional large wedding, or covid had other plans in mind for ya. Either way, you've come to the right place. Elopements, 'minimonies' and adventures are my jam.

And because I realize that most likely you are planning this day from thousands of miles away, I love to help every step of the way.

When you book with me, you have total access to all of my resources. That includes location scouting/planning, creating a timeline for you, matching you with the perfect vendors, and of course sending ya memes on IG.

If photography and your experience is at the top of your list of priorities (YAS!) give me a virtual high five and keep reading!!

working with me is so much more than a photoshoot. i provide a full on experience.


Such a good question. My officiating services are for the super low-key couples that don't want a full on ceremony and simply want to exchange vows and sign the paper. I ask the formal questions and add in something personalized just for you! Then I step back to take photos while you read those oh so sweet vows, and exchange rings! I also own a separate officiating company (click here to check it out) to provide full ceremonies, with the option to have them join us on a hike if needed. YAS.

question 03 : how do you officiate and photograph our elopement??

This is typically any wedding with less than 10 guests in attendance - and that is my current max on event sizes. I thrive in smaller groups. I love being part of your day, like a guest and a friend who is also on her freakin' toes, taking badass photos.

question 02 : okay then, so what is a "minimony"?

Modern elopements aren't always a "runaway and get married in secret" scenario - although I love those, too! Most of the time your friends and fam know your plans, but it's just the two of you there.

question 01 : what is an elopement exactly?

I'm so passionate about this topic, that I wrote an entire blog post about it! You can read it here.

question 04 : What happens if it rains?

See above answer :) I am your go-to girl for all things Hawaii - even if you are just asking about the best places to stay or the best restaurant for your post-ceremony dinner!

question 06 : we've never been to hawaii. can you help us pick the best location?

YUP! Once you are booked with me, you can consider me your coordinator. This is why you might find that my rates are higher than other's in the area. I provide a full on service and experience, and love helping you every step of the way.

question 05 : can you help me with my timeline?

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. This is also available for couples honeymooning in Hawaii who aren't having a ceremony. You wear workout clothes going up the hike, and then we get creative with creating an "on the spot" changing room. Hiking not your thing? That's cool, too! I still have epic location options for you!

question 07 : What is an adventure session?

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 08 : How can we book you?

& "minimonies"

& adventures

"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."

Rachel + Peter

"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
