"Working with chelsea was an absolute dream!"

Chelsea is the sweetest photographer. When we first met her in a little coffee shop, my husband and I had no hesitation in booking with her. She has a gentle spirit, a warm smile, and a cute, bubbly personality. She is efficient and detailed. Chelsea was so kind to fit us in her schedule last minute to do our engagement photos the very next day! (She even let me borrow her shoes!) She includes engagement photos in her packages because she desires that the couple be super comfortable when the wedding day arrives. And that was the case with us! Chelsea makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera; like actual models! She has a really good eye for photography and her photos are outstanding. Chelsea is extremely hardworking and returned our engagement photos & our wedding photos to us within an extremely timely manner. Plus, she surprised as at our wedding with an electronic slideshow of the photos from before the ceremony. That was the best :) Something that stood out to me was her reasoning for getting into wedding photography. Chelsea told us that she wants the photos she captures to be something that is continually uniting the couple. Whenever a conflict arises, she desires the couple to look at those photos and see the joy and love they share. It takes the couple back to remembering why they got married & the reminder that the other is not the enemy. They're each other's life partners. I thought that was such a unique perspective for a wedding photographer and loved that Chelsea has that mindset & purpose for her job. She's extremely intentional. You won't regret working with Chelsea. She makes the most of her time, energy, resources, and she makes you feel so important :) Chelsea, you are beyond wonderful!!!

"I can never thank her enough for making our wedding day the best day of our lives"

Chelsea Schaefer photography was better than I ever could have imagined. Not only does she take stunningly gorgeous photos, she is just the most incredible person to work with. She is kind, personable, professional, and fun to work with. On the day of our wedding, she took care of everything and kept the schedule moving. She somehow managed to get pictures of even the smallest things. I absolutely loved our floral displays and cupcakes, but I didn't even get to see them at the wedding 

because we were so busy. I'm so thankful that Chelsea took the time to capture all of these tiny details so we can cherish them forever. I highly recommend Chelsea. She is passionate about what she does and it clearly shows in her work. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. I can never thank her enough for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives. And I'm so thankful for the beautiful photos she gave us so that we can always remember it.

My husband and I found Chelsea on Facebook. She was the only photographer that we met with, and we instantly fell in love. She responds to questions quickly and is extremely easy to work with. Chelsea was patient with us during our engagement shoot. She gave awesome pointers in order to make us feel comfortable and get the best pictures possible. She also handled our wedding flawlessly. We had a delay with hair and makeup, but Chelsea was able to keep everything moving in a

timely fashion to get all of the pictures we wanted (and then some). She handled our extremely large (and loud) family like a professional. Chelsea is not only an amazing photographer, but an even better person. She went above and beyond what we expected from her. Her pictures are exquisite and gorgeous. We loved every picture she took, and had the hardest time picking ones for our album! You cannot go wrong with Chelsea Schaefer Photography!

"chelsea will treat you like you're the only couple she's working with"

Chelsea is the best!! Seriously, one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. Chelsea is the sweetest and truly cares for you and your fiance through the wedding planning process. She even helped me look for Pinterest ideas for decor! She listens to what you want for the wedding and for photography and goes above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. And on top of all that, her pictures are gorgeous. She is so talented with a camera. We will look back on our wedding day and get to remember all the fun and excitement through her beautiful pictures. Like I mentioned before, Chelsea cares. She would text 

and check in throughout the wedding planning process and was always available to offer advice and help with things. She asked me about what my perfect wedding day would look like and how she could best serve us on our day. She genuinely cares about my husband and I. You have to go with Chelsea!! She'll treat you like you are the only couple she is working with. She cares not only about making sure the pictures are perfect, but also about you and your spouse. You won't find anyone with a heart like hers and with such incredible talent. She is incredible!!

"booking chelsea is one of the best decisions you can make for your wedding day!"

My experience working with Chelsea was nothing short of fantastic! From the first few emails exchanged to my husband and I's thoughtful Christmas gifts from her, Chelsea was so thoughtful and caring. We were on a short timeline for engagement photos, and Chelsea was incredible flexible. She is always available for advice, vendor suggestions and support. She even gave us the name of the resort we ended up booking for our honeymoon! On the wedding day, she was an expert! She stayed on time (and was early to the venue) and got all the poses I wanted for the bridal party and family. Chelsea makes everyone involved feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera (even my husband who isn't a huge fan of photos). Chelsea worked seamlessly with my vendors and had same day photos ready for us before we even left the reception. She finished 

our photos sooner than expected, and they are so beautiful! We have received so many compliments and gave out a bunch of photos for Christmas gifts. We can't wait to receive our wedding album! At the time I worked with Chelsea, she was in the first year of her business. But, you would have never known it! Her professionalism and willingness to try almost anything for her clients stood out to me. Also, after you become one of her brides you feel like she's not just your wedding photographer, but a friend. To all the future couples of Chelsea Schaefer Photography, you won't be disappointed! Your photos will be so beautiful and capture your day so perfectly. Chelsea is an amazing resource for wedding advice and is so a sweet person. Booking Chelsea is one the best decisions you can make for your wedding day :)

"Our pictures came out better than we ever could have imagined"

Chelsea and I met in college, almost 7 years ago. Getting to watch her passion for photography grow has been one of the coolest things to see, and be a part of! So last January, when we got engaged, there was no question that we wanted Chelsea to not only be our photographer, but also one of my bridesmaids. This choice was easy because not only did we love Chelsea, but we knew her excitement and enthusiasm for weddings was exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. Chelsea's 

attention to detail and making sure that Mike and I were taken care of allowed us to fully enjoy our day. Chelsea was so efficient; she took care of our big families and bridal party during pictures to ensure that we got all of the photos we wanted in a timely matter. On top of all of that, our pictures came out better than we could have ever imagined. They were fun, romantic, stunning and captured every part of our day. We are so thankful for Chelsea!

"her business epitomizes capturing the joy of being married"

When we first met with Chelsea, she immediately conveyed a sense of professionalism and passion. Her excitement around marriage and photographing weddings was clearly evident; it made our decision to hire her as our wedding photographer effortless. In the months leading up to our wedding, Chelsea helped us plan and prepare in ways that far exceeded her role as photographer. She helped us organize a schedule of specific shots we wanted for the wedding day. We were so impressed with how quickly and efficiently she shot our family and bridal party photos. We really wanted to make the most of our wedding day by being present for cocktail hour and the reception. Chelsea made that 

possible. Chelsea Schaefer Photography captured beautiful candid and posed shots throughout our wedding day. Many of our guests commented on how great it was to interact with Chelsea. They especially loved the way she screened photos taken that day, at the end of the night. Chelsea was timely with providing us many teaser photos the day of our wedding. Our final proofs were sent just a few weeks later. We appreciated Chelsea's humor and coaching while taking engagement pictures and wedding day shots. She completely made us feel at ease. We highly recommend hiring Chelsea Schaefer Photography for your wedding day. Her business epitomizes capturing the joy of being married.

"Chelsea was just as excited for my wedding as I was"

I have known Chelsea as a friend for years and have seen her dream of being a wedding photography grow into a true reality. She is passionate and enthusiastic about each and every couple she works with. When it came time for me to start planning our wedding, I was so excited to have Chelsea by my side to shoot our special day. From day one, she was professional and very detail-oriented. Leading up to our wedding, Chelsea went above and beyond the duties of a photographer. She even went to visit our venue with us! She made us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. To be honest, working with her was like working with one of my best friends. She brought her contagious smile 

and sweet spirit into every phone call, meeting, or photo shoot we had. Chelsea was just as excited for my wedding as I was. On our wedding day, Chelsea handled a lot of the timeline details. She was not afraid to take charge and get people where they needed to be. We did not have to worry about a single thing. It was a true blessing to know details were taken care of. Her photos are stunning and will be something we will cherish for years to come. We are so thankful Chelsea was able to capture the overwhelming joy and excitement in her photos that we felt on our wedding day!
