Michigan Wedding Photographer


Michigan Wedding Photography

Are you a couple who wants to tell your wedding story through imagery? Storytelling wedding photography is an art form that goes beyond merely capturing moments; it’s about narrating the unique story of a couple’s special day through images. Unlike traditional wedding photography, which often focuses on posed portraits and staged shots, storytelling photography seeks to document the genuine emotions, interactions, and experiences that unfold throughout the day.

I want to capture the authentic moments, both big and small, that define your journey together. From the nervous anticipation of getting ready in the morning to the emotional exchange of vows, from the laughter and tears shared with family and friends, to every guest moment, every aspect of the wedding day is documented with an eye for storytelling.

Hands down Best photographer ever! Chelsea is so warm, creative and just makes the overall engagement and wedding photography experience feel so natural. I couldn’t have dreamed for more amazing wedding photos. She has such a cool unique style, really capturing special moments without making anything feel super posed. I am so grateful that we found Chelsea and had her be part of our wedding day! And not only that, but she is just a really great human!

Traci + Kaleb

I cannot recommend Chelsea enough. We used her as our engagement and wedding photographer and I can barely put into words how much we fell in love! She is so crazy talented and artistic and she truly captured our personalities and love as a couple. Being two very camera shy and goofy individuals, Chelsea made us feel so comfortable and at peace. We laughed, we cried, we had a blast.

I found Chelsea two years ago before I was even engaged to my now husband. She was someone that I knew I wanted as my photographer the minute I saw the photos she had done in the past. Chelsea was absolutely amazing to work with for our engagement shoot and wedding! She makes you feel so comfortable during the shoots with her kind and funny personality. The photos we took with Chels have so much life in them with them being candid.
