“Chelsea + Brian’s engagement session was an absolute blast to shoot. These two have such great chemistry and the love between them. Chelsea is my photography assistant and is starting a business with her finance. It was so fun to get her in front of the camera, as these two are naturals. Brian brought his guitar, which he made himself; plus Chelsea made sure to bring the runner which will be part of their California elopement. It was so awesome to see the couple bring personal touches which are personal and meaningful to them. After we shot in the green around the surrounding park ,we head down to the beach and got into the water for some intimate shots. After shooting for a bit we set off a green smoke bomb to add something a little special. This was a fantastic shoot & I can’t wait to celebrate with these two after their elopement!”
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
What makes your relationship special?
I’m extremely proud of our relationship lasting through my mental health struggles. I came back from Honduras early because I was extremely depressed. It was a long year of therapy and learning about myself, and Brian was so patient and caring and understanding. I was not an easy person to deal with, but he never stopped loving me. I don’t think I would be here today if he wasn’t in my life. He saved me. On a happier note, we just started our photography business! I got Brian into photography and he’s blown me away with his skills and ability to learn. We make a great team.
