2020 has been a whirlwind of a year, but one of the best parts has truly been the incredible mentoring sessions I was able to take on! Chelsea of Chelsea Rose Photography is the sweetest soul and truly such a gem to work with! We took some new headshots for Chelsea before meeting up with our sweet couple, Talia & Cole, at one of my fave little spots in Morristown! Fall colors, gorgeous sunset, and tall grassy fields?! Count me in any day of the week! 🙂
Chelsea’s photography journey started when she was about 10 years old! She got a new kitten (her beloved late childhood cat, Tumbles) who she loved to take pictures of with a disposable camera. She would set up stuffed animal photoshoots with her cat – how cute is she?! Chelsea always wanted a camera for Christmas to really feel like a “proper photographer.” It wasn’t until years later that she was reminded of how interested she was in photography when her sister got married!
Chelsea became totally obsessed with her engagement and wedding pictures, and she wanted to learn how to take pictures like that! She just had to learn! After snagging her first camera and learning a lot about prime lenses, she has been rocking the portrait game! Chelsea is also an actress, so she is super talented with acting headshots along with lifestyle portraits and couples portraits! She’s passionate about telling stories through her camera, and I know she’s going to continue to crush her photo biz! So proud of you, Chels!
Talia and Cole met through their mothers! Their sisters were on the same cheer team growing up, and their moms were both the coaches who introduced them! Cole proposed to his sweet gal in a barn with lights, sunflowers, and horses everywhere! Talia says, “It was the perfect proposal and then all our friends and family came out of hiding to surprise me!” Such great planning on Cole’s part! 🙂
These cuties got married at a country club after they had a special church ceremony. They said it was truly the best day ever celebrating with their 300 incredible guests!
Talia says, “Cole makes me laugh like there’s no tomorrow,” and Cole says there are too many things about Talia he loves to choose just one!
Thank you so much for modeling for our session – Chelsea and I are incredibly thankful that you made the trip to Morristown and spent the evening laughing together and showing off your love for us! <3
