we crossed the golden gate bridge as the last blues of day faded into the dark sky.

tyler played in a tattoo parlor in san francisco. a man named tony phillips played after him & swept us all up in his songs.
we fell in love.
tony’s voice tugs on your heart strings. it is wise, comforting, telling, haunting.
he used to play in genesis & was traveling from england with his daughter.
his presence was an absolute gift! so enchanting.

on thanksgiving we chased the afternoon light up into the sonoma mountains.
we had a thanksgiving dinner in this fantastic little cabin built on the side of the mountain.
a wood burning stove & kitchen full of laughter with old & new sweet friends.
we shared silverware & wine, & nick & i snuggled in the very tiniest little top bunk bed,
in the morning we drove to big sur.

BEAUTIFUL :)

some images from a few days ago in mendocino county.

so beautiful. ♥

tyler played with a brilliantly talented folk singer named gwyneth moreland,
& the next morning we woke to sunshine over the evergreens & dewy grass on her sweet farm.

the area is dreamy.. deep blue-green crystal sparkling water. everywhere you look, it is perfect. :)

hey there!
we’re on the road alongside tyler gregory, his ladylove, crystal, & our friend, claire,
photographing the west coast leg of his tour.

we’ve spent some time recently in southern oregon. this area is a fairyland!
misty mornings, the greens are brighter & fog drifts across the mountains. mossy stones, babbling streams.
it’s a sweet & radiant place that feels like home.

we explored ashland a little bit the other day, & tyler played at oberon’s tavern– a eclectic, renaissance-fair-esque pub.

last month nick & i drove from kansas to new jersey to california.
we had some gorgeous weddings & photoshoots along the way & got to watch the spectacular fall colors as they bloomed from east to west.
so many adventures & as with every fall, a lot of introspection.
it’s been a busy & amazing season of travels & photos.
i’m inspired & grateful for all of the beauty in the world, & all of the wonderful people that create it.

here are some photos from our time in colorado, utah, & nevada…

the structure & folk art in the above images is a home/ monument called thunder mountain.
along i-80 in the nevada desert, it was made from recycled materials & has a quirky & fascinating history.
so many different found objects are intricately placed, words scrawled in cement & scratched onto painted surfaces. cars & machinery propped up, multicolored glass, old bottles & televisions & typewriters, all kinds of statues, crystals & wildly shaped metal & cement structures cover the property. it’s overwhelming, a wonderland! i think that i read that the man who built it found all of the materials as trash alongside the highway in a 50 mile radius.. something like that.
i could’ve explored for hours. it was wonderful to feel the sun on my skin & dust under my feet.
there’s so much open space in the desert, to think & dream.  :)

we’re in oregon now, on the road. more soon!
love, chelsea ♥

 a few weeks ago, nick & i drove i-84 through northern utah.
driving 80 mph down interstates always clears my head.
feeling the vastness of the land & sky is grounding, & leaves me feeling so alive.
these were shot a few miles from the outskirts of the great salt lake.
the air smelled like fresh rain & thick clouds gathered so low over the mountains, billowing & soft.
light rain made a shiny mist over everything & james blake sang joni mitchell on the radio.
it was lovely… there were horses. :)

nyc wedding photography

the morning of dennis & meghan’s wedding, the sun painted bright early morning light over midtown.
everyone was all smiles & so easy going & excited.

hundreds of laughs, sweet moments, & a few cups of coffee later, we drove to the new york botanical gardens for their ceremony + reception. the gardens are a magical oasis of nature & the glimmering sunshine that surrounded them as they saw each other for the first time was something out of a story book.
as we wandered around the garden grounds with meghan & dennis,
we were so inspired by all the flora, the brilliant colors, the light, & their love.

everything was just so beautiful & vibrant & their party was so much fun.
enjoy!

kansas city wedding photographers (219)

 amanda & sean were married in late may.

that morning, there was just enough rain to make everything perfectly green (& for good luck). :)
everything was beautiful. i love outdoor weddings!
the pinks & greens of their gorgeous flowers (by amanda’s mom) + the lovely rustic venue, stony point hall came together perfectly to embody the feeling & color tones of late spring.

seperately, these two are amazing people– but together, they have such chemistry!
there is so much sweetness & laughter in their love- it lights up the rooom!
& their party was epic. ;)

here is their story…
