What's a second shooter?
do i need one?

A second shooter is someone I hire to be my second pair of eyes/lenses. They will see what I won't, be where I'm not, and make sure that not a moment or angle of your wedding day is missed.

I work 95% of my weddings totally Han Solo, but do recommend having a second shooter for weddings with more than 100 guests if there is space for one in your budget.

how long will it take to get our photos delivered?

I deliver a sneak preview within the first week and full galleries are delivered within 10-12 weeks. I know 12 weeks seems like ages, so I always get you a nice healthy batch of preview photos to hold you over. Good things take time, I promise it will be worth the wait!

how far in advance do i need to book you for my wedding?

I open my booking calendar at 12-14 months, so as soon as you have a date in mind, feel free to reach out! Many couples book in the 8-12 month window and my calendar does fill up quickly. The sooner, the better, I always say! Just think of how relaxed you'll feel getting such a big piece off your to do list.

I'm confused -DO YOU LIVE IN HAWAII OR SEATTLE? 

Hawaii is where I'm from, but Seattle is where I live! I spend at least 1-2 weekends per month back in Hawaii and the rest back here in Seattle or traveling to another incredible place.

It was my dream to have Chelsea photograph our wedding from the first time I saw her photography. That, coupled with her joyous personality, truly made for the most stress-free experience and the results are BREATHTAKING.

As someone who is actively uncomfortable getting their photo taken, I can honestly say Chelsea makes it such a breeze. She was able to capture these incredible moments without making us feel as though our whole day was spent in front of a camera. If you hire Chelsea (which you should), you're going to get more than beautiful images, her work clearly speaks for itself. She's also going to be your biggest cheerleader, someone to calm nerves, and an over all kick ass person to spend one of the biggest days of your life with.

"the most stress-free experience and the results are BREATHTAKING"

Chelsea doesn’t produce wedding photos with just the average wedding poses. Her photos showcase her amazing talent to produce beautiful images celebrating the uniqueness of your love. She got ALL the lovey shots, ALL the tears of joy, ALL the silliness and giggles. In fact, it is hard to believe there was just one of her with all the different photos we received.

She made us feel so comfortable; it was like working with a long time friend. The shyest of our wedding party stood confident and everyone at our wedding commented how fun she was. She went above and beyond, working behind the scenes to make sure the little details were noticed and the special moments were captured so we can relive them through our photos time and time again. 

"we are mind blown! They are the most beautiful photos I have ever seen"

Having Chelsea as our photographer for our wedding was a dream come true! From our first correspondence to the end; she was fun, energetic and most importantly on point with all things photography. Bringing someone with such positive energy for the big day was something that I didn't know I needed but so glad I found! It helped to make all of our friends and family enjoy the process of the day while capturing all of the special memories. Everyone that was a part of our day could not say enough great things about her! From the moment we first exchanged messages to the end I never second guessed our decision and am so happy to have her as part of our wedding dream team. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

"she was fun, energetic and most importantly on point with all things photography"

"I know that sounds intense, it's a bold statement. But it's true. Right away she made me feel like the most beautiful person in the world, and had my husband and I laughing and loving one another the whole time she captured our special day. Her skills goes far beyond photography, to comedian, cheerleader, and inner diva summoner. 

I just finished making our album and am so stoked because these pictures are magazine worthy. THANK YOU CHELSEA, you're really the best!"

"Next to choosing my groom, she was the best decision for our wedding."

Chelsea is such a wonderful human. I found her after semi-stalking her wedding on Pinterest and after seeing her website I knew we needed to have her at our wedding. Chelsea was worth every god damn penny. My husband was very hesitant about all photo shoots but Chelsea's excitement and outgoing personality really helped open him up. We're also both pretty awkward in front of the camera, but Chelsea made us feel like beautiful little models :)

Day of our wedding I felt so comfortable! It was like hanging out with a close friend with super human photography skills. All of our family and friends kept telling us how fun Chelsea was and how much they loved her! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her.

"One million star rating for the infamous Chelsea Abril!"
