Chelsey has an amazing eye for that perfect shot and is so patient to give you the best experience possible. We’ve used her two years in a row for family sessions and both times she was accommodating and helpful with getting our toddler to cooperate. She was flexible and easy to work with. We drive for over an hour each time to work with Chelsey because we know she is the only person we want capturing our memories! You will not be disappointed!

Chelsey is an amazingly talented photographer who truly enjoys what she does. She always seems to capture the perfect image. Chelsey has done our maternity and newborn pictures and two family sessions since. We love every picture she takes. She has a way of making you feel relaxed and it is actually enjoyable. She is very versatile and is awesome with children and dogs! smile emoticon I can’t imagine anyone else taking our family pictures. Walker lights up around her which is great!

I COULD NOT BE MORE SATISFIED WITH MY WEDDING PHOTOS! PICKING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER WAS ONE OF THE MOST STRESSFUL DECISIONS IN THE WEDDING PLANNING. YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS ARE TRULY WHAT YOU KEEP FROM YOUR BIG DAY, FOREVER, SO OF COURSE I WANTED THE BEST. I SAW CHELSEY’S BLOG AND I WAS IMPRESSED. SO I DECIDED TO MEET HER AND GET A BETTER IDEA ABOUT HER PHOTOGRAPHY. I HAD A TON OF QUESTIONS I WAS PLANNING TO ASK HER WHEN WE MET, TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS FLAWLESS. BUT BEFORE I COULD EVEN GET TO MY QUESTIONS SHE ANSWERED ALMOST EVERY SINGLE ONE. I KNEW AT THAT POINT SHE WAS THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER I WANTED TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR CAPTURING THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE. IF I COULD GO BACK IN TIME I WOULD CHOOSE HER 1,000 TIMES AGAIN. THANK YOU CHELSEY!

Chelsey will always be my go-to for anything photography related! She did my engagement pictures, bridal shoot, wedding and Christmas mini pictures all this year. She is an absolute blast to work with and is so creative with her ideas! Her work is high quality and she captures emotions I didn’t know could be captured in a photo. I recommend her to anyone that is looking for a true professional photographer. ❤

Throughout my friendship with Chelsey, she has continued to impress me year after year with her professionalism, talents, and kindness. When working with Chelsey, not only are you getting top quality art, you are building a relationship as well. She cares for each and every one of her clients equally and takes a true interest in their lives. My family had the wonderful opportunity to have Chelsey photograph my sister’s wedding, and the photos were absolutely stunning. The light in Chelsey shines through the light in her work. This lady is highly recommended.

Photography is nothing more than a moment, captured. What makes a great photo, though, is a photographer’s ability to see “between the lines,” to express the soul of a moment. That is what Chelsey does, and she does it because the woman is nothing but soul. She wears it on her sleeve, in her eyes. She recognizes it, which makes her photos authentic, telling, and luminous. That is the talent we look for in TOWN, and that’s why I hire her for my personal portraiture. The best photographers are perhaps the most soulful, and Chelsey has no shortage of soul.
— Blair Knobel // Editor of TOWN Magazine
Chelsey has done my engagement photos, bridal portraits, wedding day, my sons 1st and 2nd birthday, and holiday photos. Her lighting is beautiful, the experience is always fun, and she captures the moment. We love working with her and will continue to do so!

Chelsey is nothing short of AMAZING!!!! She captured the most important day of my life...our wedding!!! She is so creative and has wonderful ideas and pays close attention to detail. I couldn’t imagine anyone else being as great as she is!! She is very proactive and very personable with everyone. I would recommend her to anyone who wants their memories to last a lifetime through her photography!
— Kristen // Bride
I had a fantastic time during a portrait session- not only did I feel like she really got what I was going for- but the end results were amazing! She has great ideas and an excellent eye for capturing the moment- some of the photos from our shoot together have become my all time favorites- I highly recommend!

Chelsey Ashford is a lot of fun when it comes to working with her. She is able to create this bond with you so you aren’t uncomfortable in front of the camera nor uncomfortable with her. So really, you and whoever else can go about your business and there she is to capture that memory of a funny moment, the baby’s first smile and more—she is able to give you those moments to relive over and over with just a picture or many pictures. Chelsey Ashford is talented, fun, and authentic.
