“Chelsea's work is beautiful and she has amazing skills. We had so much fun with Shawn + Chelsea and so did our guests, Our day wouldn't have been the same with out them and we have amazing photos. ”
“Chelsea loves what she does and it shows in her photography, both in artistic and technical ways. She has an eye for natural light, subtle emotion and candid moments.”
“We could not have asked for a better team to capture our wedding day! Chelsea and Shawn were wonderful to work with from the moment we first met, and went above and beyond for us. Our pictures are just stunning and every single special moment was photographed beautifully.”
“ I appreciated how patient and incredibly caring Chelsea and Shawn both are, not only to their clients but to their craft. Every time I look at my wedding pictures, I have a hard time picking a favorite picture. I can't imagine that anyone would have captured our day more perfectly and beautifully.”
“Chelsea and Shawn are true professionals. They don't just take pictures, they capture the essence of the moment. As we look back at our photos, we are immediately taken back to that moment and all the emotions we felt. The day goes by in a flash and to be able to look at a picture and be back in that moment is priceless. ”
I'm Chelsea. Born and raised in Michigan where I will always consider the mitten home. I have a passion to capture all things beautiful and freeze these moments in time others might miss. Having always loved photography, I pursued this passion and earned my Undergraduate Degree in Photography and my Masters in Interior Design. Family is everything to me and I am blessed to have been married to Shawn, my husband since 2008. I am a tomboy dressed in camo come fall, weekends on the lake fishing during the summer. Exploring back roads is an adventure I'm always up for. I am blessed and thankful the Lord has allowed me to do what I love and that is photograph you!

I absolutely adore dogs and puppies! You want to bring your four legged friend to your session the answer is yes, please! I love design and architecture! The sense of accomplishment I have after vacuuming makes me do it as often as possible. The perfect day involves sun, water, a boat and people I love. It is always a good week when I have fresh flowers in the house. I could literally eat Breyer's Ice Cream with Raspberries every.single.day!!! I shoot with all professional Canon gear. My love for canon started when I received my first Canon at the age of 14. Seeing new parts of the world enlightens my soul and I cherish every opportunity to see a place I haven't been, and immerse myself in the culture. You could say I have a case of wanderlust....

As a wedding photographer I desire to document your wedding in the most romantic, timeless, organic way possible. Deciding who will bring your memories to life is one of the most important decisions when planning your wedding. My goal is to provide you with a consistent gallery of images that takes you back to your wedding day capturing every detail and emotion perfectly. I don't just view these as your wedding photos, to me they are family heirlooms, to be passed down for generations.
