As past and present clients will tell you, I not only become your photographer, but also a friend. You become part of the Bit of Ivory family and are treated as such. I love to get to know your furbabies, your story, and who you are outside of your 9-to-5 job. I only take on a small number of weddings per year, and I’ve been blessed to be able to run this little photo biz with this more personal approach.

Just like other families, we’re all a little quirky with our own diverse and unique backgrounds. And seriously, that’s one of my most favorite things. I wouldn’t have it any other way. (Though this photo-fam seems to be largely comprised of bookworms and animal lovers…)

Call me steadfast and loyal, I love this bunch. And I love watching your new chapters write themselves from new family additions, new homes, to new adventures. We’re in it for the long haul!


“At the time we picked her, we were looking into other photographers as well–but her professionalism, organizational skills, prompt responses, and friendly demeanor made her a shoe-in.”
– Matt & Ryan, June 2014

“Chelsea was like one of my family, she blended in and we never felt uncomfortable. Chelsea took extraordinary pictures of our wedding and made our day better just because she was a part of it!”
– Melanie & Martin, September 2012

“Personable and easy to talk to, she makes you feel comfortable no matter what.”
– Jenn & Jamie, May 2012

“From the beginning, I knew we were well taken care of.  My fiance and I planned our wedding from abroad, which was no problem for Chelsea because she has all documents and information available online. We were able to make all of our plans through her website and via email. She was willing and excited to help us out throughout all the planning.”
