Hi there! I’m Chelsea Mitchell and I’m a wedding + lifestyle photographer. I am a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography and spent 10 years living in Santa Barbara, photographing all over the state of California and the U.S. I’m a hometown country girl from the heart of Kansas and my love for my family and the heartland has taken me back to the land of Ad Astra Per Aspera. 

When I’m not busy working, you can find me snuggling my nieces and nephew, training for an upcoming triathlon, or remodeling my 1875 fixer upper. 

I’ve been a professional photographer since 2007 and am known as a hybrid photographer. No, I don’t drive a Prius, but I do use both film and digital cameras.  I strive to create work that is timeless through both candid and directed moments.  Timeless images will always be in style.

Over the years I have continued my education through several opportunities to study under and work alongside industry leading veterans and have been featured in many publications internationally and state side. If you’d like to learn more about my style of photography or how to book a session, leave me a message and say hi!
