THIS IS ME
(chelsea)
I LOVE JESUS.
 
He is the one that has convinced me that every person matters and that each deserves to have their story captured and shared in a meaningful way.
He is the one that has given me the passion to always learn, grow, and see beauty.
 
He is the one that motivates me to do my best work every single time and to love each and every couple the best I can.

I LOVE MY JOB.

My job is to get to know people, interpret their vision, and blow their minds with photos. Each couple is a new challenge and it's SO MUCH FUN.

 

To do my job, I have an arsenal of bomb gear, contingency plans, and strategies to help people relax and look good.

It's a gift, that I don't take lightly, to be able to capture the most intimate and happiest moments of peoples' lives.

My photography is a traditional + candid hybrid.

My favorite photos are the ones that capture raw emotion and the bulk of the photos of my couples are interactive and real. But I  value formal family portraits as well.

 

My focus is that each photo is flattering and emotionally authentic at the same time.

SOME PROUD MOMENTS

LET'S GET PERSONAL!

I'm in love with my goofy and handsome husband (who is often my 2nd shooter and business advisor). We've been married since 2013 and have 2 ADORABLE kids and another on the way (Liam Kiefer Kalunga Archer and Nora Jo Milambo Archer. You can ask me how their names are so awesome.}

 

I get rowdy when I root for the Dallas Cowboys. (LET'S GO!)

 

I'm happiest when I'm hiking, camping, canoeing, traveling, and taking photos of God's beautiful creation. I am a huge fan of coffee, cheesecake, candles, foxes, and sweatshirt weather. ​

I love earthy and edgy vibes.

I love neutrals, succulents, denim, and leather. I'm inspired by anything that communicates a sense of adventure, passion, or coziness.
