The Joyful process

1/7

Choosing a proposal photographer can be an overwhelming process. The phone chat is a great way for us to get to know each other and see if we are a good mutual fit. 

Hey friend,
let's Chat!

2/7

We're starting to feel like friends, and I'm so excited to capture this special moment. To secure the date, and book me as your proposal photographer there is a retainer and contract to sign.

Make it Official!

3/7

We'll meet up in person or video chat to go over your proposal location together. We'll find the perfect spot you envisioned, and go through all of the details in advance. That way, on the day of the proposal, the only thing you need to worry about is getting down on one knee.

About 2 weeks after your proposal, we'll meet over Zoom for a Virtual Viewing Party. You'll be able to relive this special moment every day with a custom wall gallery and heirloom album that Chelsey will custom design for you. 

Virtual Viewing Party

7/7

It's incredibly special for me to capture a couple from when they get engaged, to when they say "I do," and then when they become parents. You can rest assured that I'll be your life long photographer. 

We'll Never say goodbye

"I would absolutely recommend Chelsey to all! She spent the afternoon photographing my proposal and did an amazing job! She was sure to capture every important moment of the day. It all went by so fast and can be an absolute blur, so we feel so lucky to have these amazing photos to look back on. Chelsey really values each of her clients and will do everything she can to take the stress away of worrying about capturing the right moments! Thank you so much for everything!"

Logan & Erin

"What can I say about Chelsey that a photograph can't? She is amazing! Helped me capture my proposal and she was nothing less than perfect. We met the week of to review proposal spots (while fighting mosquitos), got to the location early to make sure it wasn't taken, and spent an hour taking the most breathtaking photos I have ever seen. To be honest, I didn't think I could ever look as good as her photographs make you look! Absolutely would recommend her to friends, family, and all of you. Thanks for the awesome work! "

Austin & Jordan

"Chelsey was willing to go above and beyond to make our special day perfect. Our proposal took place on the snowiest winter day and our proposal location was closed due to snow blocked roads from a blizzard. Chelsey displayed great problem solving skills and provided a great alternative for the proposal location. She even stood out in the cold and snow while she waited for the perfect moment for me to get down on one knee. The pictures came out even better than we imagined, and whenever friends or family come to our house they comment about how beautiful the photos came out."
