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...

Hi I'm Chelsy weisz

(pronounced wise) 

Well, hello!

After 6 years of doing the same thing it's easy to feel burnout, and quite frankly have a lack of creative energy.  The reality is, I have seen and photographed it all and the more that I shoot, the more that I fall in love with this job! The joy, the excitement, the feminine details, the tears, the dances with daddy, the portraits that take your breath away.... I love it all. Even after 5 years, I still can’t get over the fact that I have been trusted with preserving over 50 weddings!! I don’t take my job lightly.

From 2016-2018 I stood by my husband, Justin, as he battled an infection after the placement of a new heart valve. He had the valve replaced 3 times, and just recently had his sternum removed after the infection took hold in his bone. Throughout the entire journey, we clung to God and each other. Having someone to stand by your side through thick and thin is one of the best things in life. I am so honored that I get to document couples as they stand before God, their family, and friends, and vow to stand side by side.  

Before every wedding day begins I sit in the car and I pray for the couple, their families and for the ability to capture my couple’s celebration with excellence and creativity! Besides raising our daughter, Skyler, and son Grayson photographing weddings is truly one of the most rewarding parts of my life! The friendships and experiences that are created with my Weisz Couples last far beyond the wedding day and I believe that’s how it should be! I am excited for you to keep scrolling to learn more about how being a Weisz Bride isn’t your typical photography experience; it’s so much more!

The way he looked at you the first time he saw you in your dress 

The tears that filled daddy’s eyes as he walked you down the isle 

The prayer you shared with mom after she helped you into your dress

NO AWKWARD STIFF POSES OR FAKE SMILES HEAVY EDITING, OR FEELING RUSHED, SIMPLY YOU AND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE ON YOUR WEDDING DAY!

I didn't know Chelsy when she was hired as our Photographer 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, 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!

she knocked it out of the park!"

Chelsy is an amazing photographer and so much fun to work with! There is no one we would rather have done our engagement session with! We are very excited to have her photographing our wedding day as well! I would totally recommend Chelsy Weisz Photography to anyone that is looking to have pictures taken.

Let me start by saying I am NOT a photogenic person, I fear the camera! Chelsy made me feel comfortable from the beginning as she explained what to expect & walked me through the entire experience of engagement & wedding day photos!
Most people can only see the photos but don’t realize what it takes to create these shots. Chelsy went above & beyond anything I expected, answering so many questions & helping me out by referring me to her blog as well for questions I didn’t even know I had! Truly blessed to have been able to work with her as she created beautiful photographs we will treasure for years & years! Thank you Chelsy

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 moments that are special all of the qualities one would want in a photographer.

"wonderful experience...

I absolutely love working with Chelsy. She took my engagement pictures, my best friend's wedding pictures, our family photos, and next summer she'll be photographing our wedding! I never want to use any one else again, I love her work and she makes taking pictures such fun.

I never want to use any one else again"

My fiancée & I loved doing our engagement pictures with Chelsy! She was fun to work with and got many shots in just one hour! Our engagement pictures have turned out beautiful. We can't wait for her to photograph our wedding day!

The Experience: 

what to expect when you work with me 

on your wedding day, learn all the simple posing during your engagement session, where you can get comfortable in front of the camera, and let your personalities shine through. 

for both pricing and editing. No complicated pricing packages or over edited images. I want you to look at your images years from now and remember how if felt, not be sucked into a time warp based on how images were edited. 

to help walk you through crafting your timeline, choosing a ceremony start time, and the little things no one tells you to have ready. 

so you can print your photos wherever, whenever, and however big you want.

keep your images for generations to come without the worry of how technology will change 100 years from now. 

Feel like a Pro... 

Simplicity...

Bridal Magazine...

Digital Files in Every Package...

Heirloom Albums...

The Process

step one:
Lets be friends

We don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! I know that Weisz Brides are unique and I work VERY hard to find them! I serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with us is determining if I am the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ...

the process!

step two:
save the date

Yay!! You were made to be a Weisz Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! I'll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official Weisz Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....

Next Up: Engagement

step three:
engagement

Let the fun begin! After you book, I'll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... I'll teach you EVERYTHING! I thrive at helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! That’s all the time I need to 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 and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.

Next Up: Timeline Talk

step four:
timeline talk

Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, I'll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! I love creating custom timelines for my couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? I work with my Weisz Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! After 6 years of photographing weddings in a magazine-quality manner, I know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!

Next Up: Your Wedding!

step five:
Your wedding!

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! I believe in telling the full story of my couples' wedding days and so we never shoot less than 8 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you and so I make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is the portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the Weisz Blog the following TUESDAY! I like to share our weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping my couples waiting!

Next Up: Design!

step six:
Gallery + Album Design

After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and 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 will receive an email to schedule your album design consult (if you ordered an album!) and we can begin the customization process! We will meet up in person to live design the album so we can skip the back and forth emails that can drag on for months! Let's get that heirloom album in your hands within 8 weeks of the wedding!

The Process

Here's what others have asked...

How many digital images do we receive?

What is your shooting style? We don't want someone who is overbearing.

Do you travel?

Is 8 hours enough?

How do we book you?

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

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!

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.

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.

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.
