Our Team

Hey guys! We're Chelsea & Amanda. We are the two photographers behind the lens capturing your sweet faces. We have been working together for almost seven years and we each bring a unique energy and perspective to your shoot. On wedding days we work together as a team so that your day can be captured from every angle. Before we both became mamas we were nannies so our love and understanding of little ones runs deep. Each stage of your love and your kid's lives is so important and we want to be there for all of it. We want you to look at your photos and smile every time you see them and be reminded that your life is a beautiful story. We want picture-making to be an adventure so that the memories we capture are pure and authentic. 

Chelsea Maras

Hey guys! I am a California girl who seeks beauty in the simplest of moments. Fashion student turned art student turned photographer. That was my path to this awesome career. Photos are my love language and I have been shooting professionally for over six years. Three years ago I married the most amazing guy who supports this crazy dream of mine. We just welcomed a new member to our tribe, a sweet baby boy who lights up our life. I am a sentimental, romantic to my core. Every smile, kiss or cuddle that happens in front of my lens really does melt my heart. Photography becomes all we have to hold onto of our most precious moments, photos fill in the blanks that our minds forget. That's what I love most about my job. Freezing those moments so they can be enjoyed over and over again. Plus, being outside at the most magical golden hours soothes everyones soul. 

Amanda Patrice

Hello! I have been taking photos my whole life and I love that I have been able to turn one of my favorite hobbies into something that brings so much happiness to other people. There is just something so amazing about spending time with people on their most special days and giving them a way to remember all the best moments through art. I am a mama of two boys with a little girl on the way and I know how important it is to commemorate the fleeting years with photos that highlight all the good times.
