Hey hey! I'm smiling because I have noticed a few new friends around here! I wanted to introduce myself and welcome ya'll to the fam! ⠀
Hi, my name is Chelsi. I think people in love are RAD! I enjoy capturing their silly and serious moments for them to look back on for years to come. I still wake up some days and wonder if this is a real job. I mean how cool is it that I get to capture people's love stories? RAD. Just Rad. ⠀⠀⠀
I am married to a hunky firefighter (you can read more, link in my profile). I have three very handsome boys, two dogs, and one gold fish. When I am not photographing couples wildly in love, you can find me chilling on the beach with my boys, snuggling with my husband, or chowing down on tacos. ⠀⠀
On our wedding day, we promised to love, cherish, and TRAVEL. I also made HIM promise to feed my @disney addiction, even though he doesn't particularly love "the mouse". I am a HUGE fan. I have been to @disneyland 45 times in my lifetime. During our first year of marriage, he surprised me with a trip to @waltdisneyworld. one of my favorite parts of that trip was our date to Epcot Center. We left the boys behind with grandma and spent a day eating, exploring, and generally having a great time in the park. If I lived in SoCal, I would be at Disney every single day.⠀⠀
We are all looking forward to a @disneycruiseline cruise in the fall. It's Halloween on the High Seas. Jack and Sally or #nightmarebeforechristmas are going to be hosting a HUGE party and I can not wait! I know, dorky right?!?⠀⠀
So now that I have told you a little about me, it's your turn. Do you have any silly childhood obsessions like me? Do you have a favorite Disney Character? Tell me, I nnnnneeeeeddd to know!⠀⠀
As a photographer, at least for myself, it's hard to get in front of the camera!
I'm not a fan of it, and I get very anxious and sweaty, yes sweaty, when we take photos!
We wanted to get family photos done before my stepdaughter left Hawaii, so I reached out to my amazing friend and talented photographer @ashleybowmanphotography to take our images!!
She wanted to get some of Josh and I, and here's a sneak and I am in love!!
I don't even know who that lady is right there!!!!!
Make sure you are stepping in front of the camera to document your OWN legacy!!
Ashley is leaving this beautiful island soon and moving back to Quad Cities, Illinois....so, do me a favor!
Head over, give her a like, show her some love and if you are in the area, make sure you hit her up!
And happy Aloha Friday!!
@disneyweddings are truly magical. This wedding specifically was straight out of a fairytale. It included Cinderella’s Coach, guest appearances from Disney friends like Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, rooftop views of Magic Kingdom and so much more. This literally is the happiest place on earth.
Went to the vault to dig up this oldie but man I still love this photo. Amanda and Dave were married at the beautiful beach front resort Grand Palladium Kantenah in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. This was from their day after session. I love the wood texture element.
⭐️ HELLO..... IT’S ME...⭐️
Happy Aloha Friday!! ✌🏽
Today’s been one of those crazy days where the time is FLYING BY, and you look up and half the day is over!!
It is #fridayintroductions day, and there are SO MANY NEW faces here (FYI, thank you for all of the love from #thegreatestshowman shoot, and the 3 big features this week from @destinationido , @burnettsboards , and @strictlyweddings !!) so I thought I would share 3 random facts about me!!!
1. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska! When I was a year old, we moved to Hawaii, And stayed here till I was 13 years old! We moved back to Alaska for about 6 months while we waited for a place to live in Washington state! I don’t really remember much, but would love to go back one day!
2. While I was in the Navy, My job was a Quartermaster and Master Helmsman. A Quartermaster’s responsibility is to navigate the ship safely through the waters! We would plot charts, stand watch on the bridge, amongst so much else! Not many people can say they steered an aircraft carrier for a living!
3. I’m a planner through and through! If it’s not in my notebook, it won’t happen! I literally don’t know what to do unless I write it down! And you better believe if I do something not on that daily to do list, I write it down just to scratch it off! It makes me feel good!! ✏️ That’s it for today!!! What are your plans for this weekend!!!
What an incredible experience to be a part of Disneyland’s first ever Starcade wedding!! It was amazing to see this classic Disneyland attraction transformed into Paula & Jack’s Wonderland! We loved seeing all the little details come to life in the magical way that only @disneyweddings can do. | 📷 by @jkp_amber

I’m still in Texas 😍 but wanted to share this sweet capture from my last engagement session I did right before flying out.
This #Disneyland engagement and that Mary Poppins dress is so stinking cute!
Sessions at Disneyland can be a challenge, for sure! Especially with the crowds but it pushes me to be creative and try new things, so I love It! These two are huge Disney fans and I can’t wait for their big day this October 🖤
Cute facts about Sierra and Kyle:
1️⃣ Their first kiss was in the pirates ride at Disneyland.
2️⃣ He proposed in front of the castle @disneyland
3️⃣ Their having a Disney themed wedding 👰🏻
Jade and Chris invited their closest friends and family to celebrate with them at the Disneyland Hotel. 💫 They opted for vibrant red floral arrangements 🌹 accented by white chairs and a simple gold aisle runner. 📸: @jennawhiterabbit #DisneyWeddings#disneywedding#DisneylandWedding
