For the wildly in love & the wild at heart

I'm Chelsea! I'm a Nanaimo-based wedding and lifestyle photographer. I'm originally from Ontario, but I've called Vancouver Island, British Columbia my home since 2018 and I've never looked back. The mountains, forests, wildlife, and people here have made it feel like home from the start.

Through my photography, I want to capture the relationships that define you: relationships with your pets, your places, and your people. When you can feel these connections - between loved ones but also with beautiful Vancouver Island - just by looking at a photo, that's where the magic is.

I specialize in weddings, elopements, and engagement sessions. Every year I also book a limited number of family lifestyle sessions and small business branding sessions. I would love to hear more about your upcoming wedding or your ideas for a session! Send me a message to chat more.

Services

I specialize in weddings and intimate elopements. Each year, I also offer a limited number of family lifestyle sessions and branding sessions for small businesses. I am based in Nanaimo, British Columbia but love to travel; I have photographed weddings and sessions up and down Vancouver Island, in Alberta and Ontario, and even destinations including Costa Rica and Mexico.

From intimate adventure elopements to the party of the decade, I love capturing weddings in all forms.
