I highly recommend Chelsea Elizabeth Photography for weddings. From the very beginning every process is completed so professionally. From the email correspondence, contracting and google doc wedding details information (including timelines photo ideas and about you as a couple... Read More - it all feels very personalized and detailed leaving you worry free). I was absolutely thrilled with the quality of the photos and diversity of shots that we received. Beautiful couple shots, family shots, wedding detail shots. Every memory was captured well allowing us to forever relive the memories of our wedding day. Chelsea Elizabeth is a delight to work with. She is sweet and it is apparent that she has a passion for photography as showcased by her work.

If I could give them even more stars I would. First, Chelsea is great at answering her emails. She usually responds from within a few hours to a day at the latest. She is extremely nice and energetic over emails. I (unfortunately) never had the experience to speak with her over... Read More the phone. Emails were good enough for me since it was the most convenient. She helped us organize our shooting locations for our engagement shoot around Disneyland. My fiance and I decided to have our engagement photo taken by Chelsea Elizabeth Photography and we had a blast! We had our engagement session with Chelsea only and she was wonderful. She's super funny, quirky, down to earth, and is still very professional. Her creativity really shines when she is in her element. When I first started looking for photographers I was discouraged. We didn't want to have the typical engagement photos, we wanted them to be US. After speaking to a co worker about my struggles, she came across CEP. I looked at her website not just glanced, but literally DUG DEEP into her website, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and I knew she was the one I wanted to have a photos done with. We had them done this past February and thinking that it would be a light day (we had them done on a Tuesday) and it would be cool out - it was the complete opposite, but yet she was still complete upbeat despite the 90+ degree weather and the insane crowds. We got our photos back about a month (maybe less) later and I was in LOVE with them. She captured every moment. Some of the positions that we were in felt awkward and I wasn't sure how they would come out - turned out, those were the photos that were my FAVORITE. She even included a credit to have some photos printed - which we used and they were shipped and received within a week and a half! They're perfect. Thank you Chelsea, for sticking with us through happy times, EXTREMELY HOT TIMES, and we are so unbelievably in love with the product that you have provided! To date, the team at Chelsea Elizabeth Photography (and Chelsea herself) has been worth every penny. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Chelsea Elizabeth Photography and have more shoots taken during the happiest moments of our life!

If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! Chelsea Elizabeth Photography is AMAZING!!! She was the first vendor I booked after getting the venues for our wedding.

Also as a queer couple, I was nervous about getting the right photographer to capture our day. She sent me pictures of previous same-sex weddings she had done in the past and was very accommodating.

All my guests also commented on how amazing Chelsea and Katie were. With many LGBTQ friends and family at our wedding, they also felt very comfortable. I highly recommend Chelsea and her team . . . and now that a lot more LGBTQ folks are going to be getting married I hope you choose to trust your wedding day to Chelsea Elizabeth Photography!

When my husband and I got engaged, I knew the photographer was going to be the most important detail for me. The idea of having these images for a lifetime and making sure they documented every moment of our special day was crucial for me. When I came across Chelsea's photos... Read More on pinterest, I absolutely loved her style. Once I saw that she was also on the preferred vendor list for our venue, I knew I had to have her be part of our day. Chelsea really made us so comfortbale during our engagement session. We were both a bit nervous about having so many pictures taken of us, but she made it so fun and natural. We were absolutely in love with the way the photo's turned out. On our wedding day, Chelsea fit in so great, we hardly noticed she was there! This made for such natural and in the moment pictures. She really captured EVERYTHING! From getting ready, to formal portraits, to every single little detail. We have photos of it all! I absolutely loved the way she organizes the photos as well (girls, guys, getting ready, ceremony, receptions, decor, etc). Thoughout the wedding planning journey, Chelsea was always extremely responsive and on top of things. It helped to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible and took the worry off of us. I cannot wait to look back on these images for years and years to come and continue to relive the best day of our lives. Thank you so much for everything Chelsea! We cannot wait to continue to use you as our family grows later on in our lives.

Disappointed

Reviewed on 1/12/2015

The biggest let down of our wedding - the Photography. Our first interaction with Chelsea Elizabeth Photography was very positive, I really enjoyed meeting with her and she appeared to be very accommodating. Administrative wise, she is very professional. She has a great... Read More billing system and website - very easy to keep track of details. Unfortunately, the end result was not what we had expected - to be exact, we were extremely disappointed. I do think there was very much a disconnect between Chelsea and ourselves. There was probably too much time between the meetings and the actual wedding as a number our wishes were forgotten, missed or other-wised left out. We felt like the initial meeting were a waste of time as very little of our input was considered. I would have expected that her experience as a photographer would have produced different actions and as result a significantly better end product. In fact, guests that took pictures with cell phones or personal cameras produced much better results. When we expressed our disappointment, she tried to randomly "fix" images as opposed to asking what we weren't specifically happy with. I would have expected the opportunity to discuss the situation or be presented with some sort of solution, unfortunately, this never happened. We are now left with poor, disappointing images. Advice to any perspective clients ......... Do your research, ask questions and be very, very clear as to what you expect. I would even advise investing initial photoshoot to get a feel of what you can expect. This is your wedding day and it can never be recreated, choose someone that represents your vision and is willing to work with you before and after the wedding. I would advise on looking elsewhere.

My husband and I found out about Chelsea McCormick of Chelsea Elizabeth Photography when we were searching for a wedding venue. I fell in love with her photography the moment I laid eyes on it. While researching other photographers, I couldn't help but go back to Chelsea's... Read More website and long to hire her for our wedding. I never thought we would be able to afford her services. However, Chelsea was kind enough to go to the wedding venue we chose and meet with my husband, parents, and me to discuss her services in more detail and design a custom photography package that we could afford. We hired her on the spot! My husband and I had never had a professional photo shoot before, so I was a bit nervous when it was time to have our engagement session. Fortunately, we felt incredibly comfortable with Chelsea and developed an instant rapport. Our photos looked amazing, and we were confident that our wedding photos would look just as beautiful. Although Chelsea was 5 months pregnant with twins on our wedding day, that did not get in the way of her shooting the most fabulous and unique photos for us. Her photography service was one of our biggest wedding expenses, but it was definitely worth the investment. She captured every single moment of the day, and we are so happy that we will always have wonderful memories of such a special occasion. To top it all off, Chelsea frequently offers incentives for posting comments on her blog or referring new clients. For example, we received a complimentary 16x20 print for having 50+ family members and friends comment on our engagement session blog. We also won a complimentary 16x20 canvas print for having the most blog comments of any couple during the year of 2010. Additionally, we have received a few hundred dollars of credit to use towards future purchases (e.g. prints, albums, etc.) for referring new clients to her. Words cannot express how much we love Chelsea Elizabeth Photography. Since getting married in 2010, we also hired her for a "baby's first year" package. Chelsea did our maternity photo shoot over the summer, and she recently met with us to take a newborn photo shoot with the new member of our family. Even my sister, family friend, and colleague hired her for their weddings! My husband and I highly recommend Chelsea McCormick for all of your professional photography needs!
