I was SO pleased with the results of my pictures! My husband and I practically avoided getting family pictures done — but now that we have them, I’m so happy we had Chelsea be the person behind the camera! She is talented with making sure you look your best without completely over photoshopping you. Our daughter was also very responsive to her queues which made our pictures turn out beautifully. They are also very professional with printing unique canvases + photo albums, and the packaging of your prints are done very well — the best of the best quality. Definitely worth getting your memories documented outside of your iPhone/Android… I forgot how much I cherish photos of this kind.

Chelsea is an excellent photographer who’s energy is contagious. She is easy to work with and brings out your best side. She’s resourceful, gifted and is full of spirit. She has an eye for capturing the magic shots.

Chelsea and Nate Richardson did a wonderful job of designing my portfolio website, emilywertzcreates.com. They worked with me to create a site that reflects my personality and aesthetic sensibilities. Chelsea’s stunning photos capture the meticulous detail of my art, and Nate’s clean design accentuates the photos. I’m so pleased with the results!

Chelsea did an amazing job taking photos of my 4 month old son. He couldn’t take his eyes off of her, she has a wonderful personality to work with even the youngest of clients. Her passion for her art shows through capturing truly special moments. I can’t express enough gratitude for the quality and variety of images she provided!

I cannot recommend Chelsea Richardson highly enough. We have worked with her for several years now and each time the experience has been great. Chelsea worked great with our little girl, both as a baby and now a toddler, always able to get some beautiful shots before it was too late. She is very patient but also knows how to make the best use of lighting and poses. This helped tremendously as we just updated our family portraits, and it took very little time to get great shots. Turn around time is very quick and she is in constant communication regarding your order.

Chelsea was such a joy to work with. We absolutely would use her again!

Chelsea was a delight to have at my wedding. She was unobtrusive, and yet in all the right places at the right times, and charmed all of our guests into relaxed and wonderful photos. Communicating with Chelsea was easy, she was thoroughly professional and completely responsive. We wanted a documentary style of photography that captured the joy of our wedding, and Chelsea delivered with unpretentious, beautiful photos with an artistic sensibility that we will treasure for a lifetime.

Highly recommend. Chelsea captured our day perfectly and we are so appreciative.

Working with Chelsea has been an amazing experience. While maintaining an impeccable level of professionalism, she made my fiance and I feel very comfortable and relaxed. To say we are satisfied with our photographs would be a gross understatement. They are a work of art that I know we will treasure for many, many years. Chelsea’s level of passion and enthusiasm is refreshing and much appreciated. As an added bonus to her talent as a photographer, Chelsea is very aware of her business. Her correspondence was always timely, and I know that I can trust her with the most important aspect of the most important day of my life.
