I'm Chelsea, a 5ft 8(and a bit) ginger lady with a love for all things creative. I'm big on music, films, chocolate buttons and you'll often find me attending a gig or munching my way through a new series! I was lucky to have a military upbringing living in places such as Germany and Cyprus, then to boarding school in Keswick for a few years and finally Carlisle for university where I studied graphic design. Being constantly hoofed about and surrounded by new people has made me pretty easy going and happy to chat away to anyone! I like exploring and often take my camera with me on my travels (always practicing) you'll find a little bit more about my personal photography over on my blog.

Wedding photography happened kind of by accident, originally a graphic designer (I still freelance) I first did a wedding as a favour to a friend, a few years later wedding photographer (Helen Whitaker) and client of the studio I worked at needed help with a few days. I took her up on the offer - still slightly unsure if it would be my cup of tea - and it sort of snowballed from there! Helen became my mentor and also a very important person in my life. Helen along with a few other photographer friends [Such as lovely Gavin Jacob Power who took the photo above of me at my desk] helped me grow the confidence to shoot weddings in a way that felt natural to me. you can find more about my wedding style over on my portfolio page.
