“We are so awkward in front of the camera, you’ll really have to pose us to make us look good.”

This is the #1 thing I hear from my couples. I know what it’s like to feel “awkward” in front of the camera – trust me. I like to be behind the camera, not in front of it. This is super helpful for me as it allows me to make it less awkward for you!

If there is one thing I strive for, it’s for you to feel 100% comfortable. I won’t put you in any awkward poses or make you do anything that doesn’t feel like you. I want to see how you really interact with each other. Focus on each other and I’ll be able to capture you authentically.

Your wedding day matters and how you spend it matters even more. I know what it’s like to choose the path less traveled when it comes to getting married. My husband and I eloped and it was the best thing we could have done for us. We didn’t want to be the center of attention and we definitely didn’t want to spend money on something that wouldn’t have been right for us. However you decide to spend your wedding day, make sure that it’s what you both want to do!!!

I’m more than just your videographer and/or photographer. I help you craft your best day. I’m here to guide you through the planning process and make sure anything and everything you want to do, we do!

I’m highly enthusiastic, even at sunrise (this sometimes takes pure will!), and always seeking adventure. I’m based in the Carolinas but will travel almost anywhere. I primarily shoot in the Carolinas and San Diego. Those blue ridge mountains and rocky beaches have a one-way ticket to my heart. I’m also a big fan of Carolinas beaches, the Smoky Mountains, California (in general), Austin, TX (my sister lives here so I love to visit any chance I get), and of course – National Parks.

Let’s have an adventure!

Sunset Cliffs Elopement

For our big day, my now-husband and I were looking for a high-quality event videographer with reasonable pricing, and we are glad we found Chelsi! She went above-and-beyond to work with us and we could tell immediately that she is passionate about her work.

Starting from the very beginning, Chelsi was organized and communicated regularly with us through zoom, and she was easily accessible when we had questions and concerns. The day of the wedding, she was ready at 3am to video me getting ready with hair/makeup. She was very enthusiastic for someone who had woken up so early! She made the whole process stress-free and she strategized well with our photographer to make sure their work captured the "big picture". She made us feel so comfortable that we forgot we were being filmed; she felt like another friend who was happy to help us celebrate.

Since we got married at Yosemite National Park, we had to hike up to the wedding location. We were impressed that Chelsi had us pause during the hike to capture special scenes that we would not have thought of. She masterfully captured the beauty of Yosemite and our love story. We can’t wait to show our families the video, thanks to Chelsi's exceptional work :-)

Chelsi is incredible. Not only does she include an engagement adventure session in her packages, but her packages have SO much to offer. She drove about 3 hours so we could get to a waterfall before the sun came up for our engagement photos. She is not only professional but personable. She is funny and makes you feel so comfortable. We just received our ceremony film and it is more than I even imagined it could be. It perfectly captured our love, our family and the beautiful nature we got married in. I am so excited to get our highlight film of the whole day. I cannot say enough amazing things about Chelsi. If you are getting married and want to hire a videographer there is no one better than Chelsi.
