Embrace the Magic


Weddings are the heart and soul of my business and I love everything about them – the giggles of the bridesmaids in the bride’s suite, that "I am the luckiest man in the world" look on the groom’s face as his love is walking down the aisle, the stolen kisses during the reception – I love it all!

My goal on your wedding day is to capture the day as if I’m your best friend. I’ll shoot from the heart and document the important things while you soak in the moment! I’ll know the must-haves, the where’s, the who’s – all you’ll need to do is enjoy the day and embrace the fun and the magic. It’s the day you get to marry the love of your life – it will be everything you hoped for and more

Feeling the Love


"Chelsie is everything my husband and I could have ever asked for in a photographer and more. She's friendly and genuine and you can tell she loves what she does so happiness just pours out of her and adds even more to one of the most memorable days of your life. We instantly hit it off at our first coffee-meeting and had a blast at our engagement shoot. Communication was always very quick with Chelsie and the payment process was made very simple through her online client portal. We could always count on her energy and enthusiasm over email and on our wedding day I couldn't wait to see her again! I don't think enough can be said for her organizational skills, awareness, and patience on crazy wedding days. It was so easy for me to let go and let Chelsie take the reins - it was such a relief and she was a true professional (a true professional who also knows how to joke around and trick people into posing for outstanding photos.) Organizing our giant families was also not the easiest task but she enlisted the right help and had all of our family photos taken care of in record time. This meant we were actually able to enjoy the back-end of cocktail hour! Our wedding photos are gorgeous and truly captured the spirit of us and of the day. We can never thank her enough for the magic she worked!!"

We might as well call these cuddle sessions!

An hour of me, you, your honey and a whole lot of cuddling. Well, just you two will be doing the cuddling, obviously…but I’ll be there to capture the magic! Engagement sessions include one hour of photography with one photographer (hi, that’s me!) at one location. Your photos will be delivered via online gallery with printing rights and you’ll be able to share, download, and even order prints from your gallery! These are a perfect way to celebrate an engagement, an anniversary, or just because! Couple Sessions are $300. 


The Questions


How long have you been a photographer?

I picked up my camera in 2009, shot my first wedding in 2011, and graduated with my degree in 2013. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph over 100 love stories since!

Do you travel?

YES! I will gladly explore new places with you! Travel fees may apply for locations more than 60 miles from 24401. Email me and we’ll chat about it!

Do you have insurance?

Of course! I am a fully insured and licensed business.

Do you offer prints + canvases?

I do! Prints + canvases can be purchased directly from your online gallery and they’ll be shipped directly to your home!

The online gallery allows you to have access to your photos as soon as they’re ready. Wedding galleries will be ready within 6-8 weeks of your wedding; couple + portrait galleries will be ready within two weeks of your session. The photos will be high-resolution and you’ll have the option to download photos, order prints from the gallery, and share on Facebook. You can even send the link to family and friends so they can order their own photos! The company I use is a pro-level printing company and they’re super fast! Most of my clients get their photos within just a few days! And the best part: the gallery will be accessible for 10 YEARS! Whaaaaat?

You absolutely have to photograph our wedding! What’s next?
