Hello! I'm Chelsea!
Wife. Mom. Photographer.
I'm happy you're here! Thank you for stopping by and showing an interest in hiring me!
I'm a photographer located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am most passionate about serving people, whether in my work or just in life. I believe that the in-between moments are just as important, if not more important, than the posed photo. My photography style is raw and real. I’ll do just about anything to make you laugh. Years from now I want you to be able to look back at your images and feel like you're reliving those memories again. I absolutely LOVE what I do serving my clients, meeting new people and capturing their unique stories! I document every stage of life, newborns, families, weddings and everything in-between!
When I’m not busy chasing my clients around with my camera I am most likely spending time husband Matt and daughter Sophie! We love spending time outside and try to go on a walk or hike every weekend!
5 Things About Chelsea
My whole world!
My husband and I are high school sweethearts and will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in 2022! Our daughter, Sophie turned one is January. We both love being parents! And our dog Libby is the absolute sweetest! So much so that Sophie thinks her name is "good girl."
I grew up on the east side of the state near Ann Arbor. While attending Grand Valley State University for college I fell in love with West Michigan. We currently live in Grand Rapids and love living in the city and still being close enough to go the Lake Michigan on the weekends!
While I'm editing...
Libby (our dog) is always by my side cheering me on. I'm either listening to a podcast or watching Friends. Most likely wearing yoga pants and snacking on popcorn.
On my days off..
you will likely find me outside. We love going on hikes, riding our bikes or going to the beach! At home you can find me tending to my garden or baking chocolate chip cookies (I have a little bit of a sweet tooth).
Kind Words from Past Clients
"We had Chelsea do our engagement photos and wedding. We choose Chelsea because her photos are so clear and natural, reasonably priced packages, and so easy to work with!
She is so sweet and funny! She makes you feel comfortable being in front of the camera when you're feeling nervous. She captures your personality in any of the photos she takes! We couldn't have been more pleased with how all of our photos turned out! Can't wait to use her again for future occasions!"
""Chelsea literally went above and beyond her call of duty by firstly travelling from Grand Rapids, MI to Chicago, IL to take our engagement photos! She took so many great shots it was hard to choose which ones to post on my social media accounts. She's kind, polite, prompt, and she made us feel so comfortable during our shoot, we had a great time!"
