Hi, I’m Chelsy Weisz! 

I’m here to help you feel relaxed, confident, and gorgeous in front of the camera on your wedding day—so you won’t forget the little things like...

Around here, we don’t do fake smiles, stiff poses, rushed schedules, or heavy editing.

Instead, we focus on creating truly special moments—ones where you and your loved ones feel at ease, confident, and so over-the-moon happy that your joy naturally shines through your photos.

Wedding photography isn’t one-size-fits-all! Weisz Brides are special. I love working with women who want more than just pretty pictures on their wedding day. If you’re looking for joyful, natural photos that capture the one-of-a-kind love story you share with your groom-to-be, I’m your girl.

The Weisz Wedding Photography Experience

STEP ONE: Let’s Be Friends

click to check out the next steps >>

Yay! You’re excited to be a Weisz Couple—and I’m SO excited to support you. The next step is to secure your date so we can start planning for your special day. After you’ve expressed interest in working together, I’ll send you a custom online proposal, where you can view your package, make sure all the details are exactly right, and complete a deposit to make everything official.

Step two: 

save the date

Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. Have some jitters about getting pictures taken? Don’t worry... I'll teach you EVERYTHING! 

My specialty is helping couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. Even if you think you’re “not photogenic” or your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”... I’ll guide you every step of the way, so you can feel totally confident and at ease during your session. In your first 20 minutes, we’ll get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! 

After your engagement session, you’ll be featured on the Weisz Blog so you can easily share this experience with your friends and family. You’ll also receive an online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.

Step three:

Engagement 

8 weeks from your big day, we’ll start final talks to make sure everything is perfect for your wedding! I’ll develop a custom day-of timeline based on all your can’t-miss shots. 

An extra fun fact? Unlike some photographers, I’ll never rush you from photo op to photo op. After 6+ years of photographing sweet couples, I’ve perfected a signature process designed to keep your whole day feeling easy breezy while we get alllll the swoon-worthy photos you’re dreaming of. 

Step four: 

timeline talk

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax, and let us get to work! From hair and makeup with your wedding party to dancing the night away at your reception, I’ll be a fly on the wall capturing every sweet moment. I believe in telling the full story of your wedding day, so we never shoot for less than 8 hours.


It’s easy for the wedding day to feel like a blur for brides. My priority as your photographer is to make sure we’re getting all those traditional shots PLUS the one-of-a-kind moments in between, all in a creative, so-you way… so you never have to worry about whether we managed to snap that one picture you’ve had in your head since you were a little girl. 

Step five:

Wedding Bells

After the wedding is over, we’ll send you off on your Honeymoon and have your wedding blog up by the following TUESDAY—because what bride wants to wait until her first anniversary to start sharing photos?!

You’ll receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories—we’re talking HUNDREDS of them. I encourage my Weisz Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images. 

Soon after your gallery is delivered, you’ll receive an email to schedule your album design consult (if you ordered an album). There, we’ll begin the album customization process. We’ll meet up (in-person or on Zoom—your choice!) to live design the album so we can skip the back-and-forth emails that can drag on for months. Our goal is to get that heirloom album in your hands within 8 weeks of the wedding!

I want to be a Weisz bride!

Ready to take your first step? 

I didn't know Chelsy when we hired her and had reservations about the skill set of a local and young entrepreneur. Boom, she knocked it out of the park! 

She was extremely interactive and continually pursued creative pictures from different angles, lighting, and backgrounds. Above and beyond any expectation I would have had for any photographer, and a consummate professional!

“BOOM, she knocked it out of the park!”

It’s no secret that I LOVE first looks. If I had a dollar for every time I cried during a first look, I’d probably be rich!

Get Wedding Photos You’ll Love

Lance and I had a wonderful experience with Chelsy. She shot our Engagement and our Wedding photos and I would have not done it any other way. The engagement shoot allowed us to develop a relationship with her which helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera on our wedding day. She was accommodating, by allowing us to take photos at our home instead of all at the church. She was organized, timely, fun, energetic, and great at capturing all those special moments—all of the qualities one would want in a photographer.”

“Organized, timely, fun, energetic, and great at capturing all those special moments.”

I average 75-100 images per hour that I'm shooting. I love delivering my client's files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share, and download your images as much as you want. I believe in freely sharing my work because that is what I would want if I were in your shoes

HOW MANY DIGITAL IMAGES DO WE RECEIVE?

More Questions? Answers Coming Right Up…

I love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. ( family portraits, bridal party portraits etc.) There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) I teach MY couples how to pose, model and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from ME on the wedding day!

WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE? 

WE DON'T WANT SOMEONE WHO IS OVERBEARING.

I am more than willing to travel for engagement sessions, and weddings! I actually love it when my couples ask to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! I book engagement sessions at least two months in advance and 60 miles of travel are included.

DO YOU TRAVEL?

I am often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story, and the answer is yes! My main goal right now is securing and saving your date. You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline.

IS 8 HOURS ENOUGH?

Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that the Chelsy Weisz Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is to get your date booked!  

CLICK HERE to secure your wedding date, and see full pricing. I will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when you’re ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your deposit online. All of this is done through my client management system so no need fill out some complicated pdf and email it back, or worry about stopping at the post office.  

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

I believe in supporting my brides at the highest possible level. To ensure I can devote the time and energy each couple deserves, I’m only able to take a limited number of clients each year. 

Most clients invest between $3000 to $4000. This includes not only your wedding photos, but a complimentary engagement session,and digital images. 

Many clients also choose to add an heirloom album to their package, so they can show their friends and family their wedding photos for years to come. 

Once you book, you’ll receive a welcome packet filled with a plethora of information to help you with wedding planning, and to help you prepare for your photos. When we work together, you get ALL the information you need to feel confident and comfortable in your photos!
