Modern Sunset Engagement Session at NC Museum of Art


Patrice + Preston

Engagement Session

Patrice + Preston

I’ve known Patrice for a couple years and photographed her a while back to build her modeling portfolio and she was legitimately the sweetest, most kind and caring person I’ve worked with. So, when she reached out to tell me she was engaged and wanted to hire me for her wedding I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to say “yes duh okay of course!”

Last weekend I met Patrice and her fiance, Preston, in Raleigh at the North Carolina Museum of Art for their engagement session and it was PERFECTION. The light, the location, the tones, their clothing. Ahhh. Everything was right and lovely and I basically melt into a puddle everytime I look at these images. But you don’t have to take my words for it. Here’s what Patrice had to say about her experience.

Okay, y’all let me just say, you know when a photographer does amazing quality work when you have to leave a review twice on two different sites! I can’t brag enough about Chelsea, as I’ve worked with her personally for fashion photography photos! This woman is amazing and so easy to work with. My fiancé and I recently shot our engagement photos, and they turned out lovely! My fiancé was amazed at how nice he looked on camera (as he’s not a fan of himself in pics). Chelsea really outdoes herself when it comes to her work. When I say she deserves more than 5 stars she DESERVES MORE hands down! If you’re looking for a photographer that will give you beautiful photos for an affordable price, Chelsea is your girl! And please go check out her work. I can’t stop raving over the recent engagement photos of ours from the Raleigh Arts Museum... y’all don’t even understand how stunningly beautiful they turned out. I’m in love with these pictures, and nothing beats seeing my fiancé happy about himself in photos. My fiancé and I are ecstatic about her shooting for our wedding next year. Thank you so much, Chelsea, we love you!!
