"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

"Chelsea was amazing to work with! And the quality of photos she produces are beyond compare. Doing a photo shoot with 2 babies, outdoors, with wind proved a challenge, but never once did she state problems or complain about noncompliance from the kids. She went with the flow and captured some of the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. She had ideas for poses and she listened and valued my ideas. She was patient, kind, and kept the mood lighthearted at all times. I felt like she actually cared about making my kids comfortable as well as making them look their best. She was not there to collect a paycheck, but to provide my little family with priceless remembrances and memories. I cannot say how grateful I was for that. The photographer for my wedding was unprofessional and disorganized. Consequently, most of those pictures are either very poor quality or lost altogether. Chelsea is the first professional photographer I've worked with since then, and she will be the only one I will go to in the future. If you're looking for a photographer that is the package deal, Chelsea is that package. You will love working with her as much as I do!"
"My photo session with Chelsea was such a wonderful experience! I was graduating from nursing school, and really wanted my photos to reflect my profession as well as my personality. Chelsea took the time and effort to consider the look I was going for in my photos. Working with Chelsea was a pure joy as she helped me to relax, have fun, and feel uniquely beautiful. I would definitely choose Chelsea again for any future special occasions or just a fun photo session."
"Thank you so much Chelsea! Our family had the best time today at our photo shoot. Thank you for taking the time to capture the true essence of our family. We all felt very comfortable and at peace throughout the entire shoot. The moments you captured for our family are ones that we will cherish forever. The pictures are all filled with laughter and love and we could not have asked for a better experience."

"My boyfriend and I were extremely blessed by Chelsea, she was an incredible photographer. I was so amazed by her work. She was so enthusiastic and made being in front of the camera so relaxed and fun; rather than feeling uncomfortable (I get camera shy). We got our images promptly and loved how she portrayed our relationship through the pictures. Thanks Chelsea! You’re amazing and truly have a gift!"

"I had been bugging my boyfriend to get pictures taken of us and so he found Chelsea Marie Photography. Our experience was wonderful! Chelsea asked what I was looking for, and delivered just that! She was sweet and helpful in positioning our photographs. We received our pictures soon after the shoot and absolutely loved them. They captured the essence of our relationship! I would recommend her to all my friends and family members!"
"Absolutely Fantastic!!!! She made all of my kids have so much fun and my husband too! Super easy to work with and the pictures turned out beautifully! Love her!"
"Requesting Chelsea to do my senior photos was one of the best decisions I could have made! I sort of had a vision of what the photos were going to look like in my head before the photo shoot ever took place but she completely exceeded my expectations by a mile! The photos were absolutely stunning and I could not be happier! She is such a sweet photographer; flexible and willing to work with the surroundings, props, outfit choices, and budgeting. If you need help, she makes suggestions. She moves fast during the photo shoot itself and gets the photos edited and sent to you in a very decent period of time. I think I had mine within two or three days! I highly recommend her photography to anyone who wants to have a special event in their lives recorded in stunning photographs. She is truly amazing at what she does! Thank you Chelsea!"

"Doing a photo shoot with Chelsea was super fun. She was professional and excellent at directing me where to go or what to do while also having fun conversations. She has a good eye for unique and beautiful scenery, and I absolutely love her edits. I definitely wouldn’t need to think twice about doing another photo shoot with her because she is fantastic!"
"I met Chelsea through my friend, her boyfriend, Danny. I was kind of skeptical about getting pictures taken by a photographer who I didn’t know, but my fiancé and I decided to get our engagement pictures taken by her anyway. And we are both glad we did! She made the atmosphere very relaxed and fun as possible. She knew what we wanted and made sure it was incorporated into each picture. We both could not be happier about the way the pictures came out! If you need a pictures taken, I cannot tell you enough to pick Chelsea!"
"Chelsea’s photography is so great! It wasn’t until I had a photo session with her for my senior pictures that I realized how amazing she was! She had so many clever ideas for props, angles, poses, and backgrounds. It was so easy to "smile for the camera" because of her bubbly personality! She is blessed to have an eye to see the beauty in places, people, and cherished moments and uses that gift by capturing it all in a picture. She truly is amazing at what she does! I am a photographer myself and I know good work when I see it!"
"I don’t even know how to begin writing this review other than it was such a wonderful experience with such an incredible outcome of pictures!!! My daughter loved Chelsea and took to her like white on rice. She made us both feel so comfortable and there were no nerves at all (because lily and I’ve felt nervous doing pictures with other photographers before). The poses were so fun and her creativity with the set up, scenery, and editing is so beautiful! We just loved working with Chelsea and would recommend her to absolutely everyone!"
"So…I do not like having pictures taken of me, but I needed a head shot for business, so I asked Chelsea if she would take a few. She not only made it very comfortable and fun, but she somehow transformed my common front yard into a lush, tropical forest for the background – and she transformed my crows’ feet, too! What she can do with fancy lenses! The pictures turned out absolutely beautiful… Thank you so much, Chelsea! You do astonishing work! "
- Cindy Greaver, of "Mrs. G's Jellies"
"Wow! So glad we chose to work with Chelsea! There were 16 people in our group. I was a bit nervous about how the kiddos would behave and if it’d be possible to get all of us looking at one time. She was so patient and made it so much fun! We are all amazed at how great they turned out! Her use of natural lighting is super impressive. Already booked my daughter’s senior photo shoot with her :) Can’t wait to work with her again!"
LEAVE SOME LOVE!
