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 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.

If you want a photographer who will make you smile, book Chelsea Elizabeth Photography.

From the start, Chelsea Elizabeth Photography impressed us with the efficiency, friendliness, and professionalism of their communications. When we met with Chelsea and her wonderful studio manager (Bree) for our initial consultation, we already knew that we loved the crisp, clean style of her photographs. We were pleased to soon discover that she has an equally amazing personality. Chelsea's fun energy and easy going nature are contagious, and we left the initial consultation feeling positive, excited, and ready to book. With Bree's friendly assistance, we found that booking, scheduling, and payment were all a breeze.

As we planned our engagement shoot and the details of our wedding, Chelsea and her team continued to impress us with their responsiveness and thorough preparations. Despite the fact that I am a challenging subject--constant blinker, hearty laugher (in the most unflattering way possible)--Chelsea captured some truly stunning images during our engagement session. On the day of our wedding, Chelsea and her second shooter (Tara) outdid themselves, taking gorgeous shots, both posed and candid alike. Chelsea's assistant (Danny) was attentive and thoughtful beyond belief--seriously, she followed me from room to room with a fan (it was a ridiculously hot day). All of these ladies worked so hard, and they kept us laughing and smiling nonstop.

We love our photos, and we love Chelsea Elizabeth Photography!!

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 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.

Chelsea Elizabeth did our engagement and wedding photography and we loved her so much we went on to have her do our maternity shoot, delivery shoot and first family photo. Chelsea just finished our mini session of our eight month old baby for our holiday cards and they are amazing! We feel so lucky and blessed that we found such an amazing wedding photographer, that is now following us through our journey of family life! She makes being photographed so comfortable that she literally has been part of every intimate event of our last few years. If you want someone who is comfortable to be around and extremely patient Chelsea Elizabeth is probably the photographer you want to choose.

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 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. We also hired her for portraits of our new baby!

I spent the weekend going through pictures of my daughters wedding in which Chelsea was the photographer, and realized I had not written a review. We were very pleased with her work. We could not have asked for anyone better. She was very easy to talk to and took every picture we wanted, and so much more. I LOVED her formal portraits, they made everyone look so beautiful. But where I feel she really excelled was in catching the "feel" of the day. I LOVED, LOVED her candid shots, they were amazing. Looking back on the pictures I can feel what the day was like. SHe was also very respectful of the ceremony and plans for the day and was never in the way or disruptive. I would very highly recommend her for any wedding. Thank you Chelsea for the memories that will last a life time!!!

Chelsea has done a wonderful job at our wedding reception. She is very open and really listens to her clients for what we really want for our dream wedding. I especially appreciate Chelsea's diligence that she went over every reference pictures I sent for her prior to the wedding which was evident by her showing them to me on her phone during our photo session and telling me we were able to do certain shots with the atmosphere I like on our wedding day. Furthermore, Chelsea also arrived 45 minutes prior to scheduled meeting time to check out the sunlight and locations where may be good for us to do couples portraits. Chelsea listens and she studies, wanting to give you what you have in mind for your wedding. What's even more amazing about Chelsea is that despite her own loss of a close family member two weeks before our wedding date, she delivered her professionalism and passion for photography 100% on our wedding day. Thank you Chelsea for all these memorable and heartfelt pictures! :)
