Meet Your Photographer!

Chelsea Matson AboutPINIMAGE


I am so excited that you have made it here! The arts are truly a passion of mine, and I am thrilled to use my passion to capture special moments. Having worked for 8 years in the non-profit world, I can safely say that I love being around and working with people. Photography allows me to bring my love of the arts and people together to create something beautiful and inspiring.

What I love are moments. Moments that take your breath away, make you laugh until you can barely breath, and moments that you may not have otherwise noticed. Having planned every part of my own wedding I know how important it is to have someone you can trust to capture every moment no matter it’s significance. I can hardly wait to do that for you!

I made the great journey west from NYC to Milwaukee to live with my husband, Steve, in the summer of 2014.  Although I am now in the Midwest, my family and friends draw me back to the East Coast often :) I love taking any opportunity to photograph adventurous couples in the U.S. and beyond!

Scroll over the photos below to learn a little bit more about me!



Come from a massive and incredibly supportive family, of wildly talented people! (Middle Child!)


I loooove to garden and be outside as often as possible! Nature provides the most perfect backdrop for any special moment


I am so lucky that living in NY, I was able to marry the love of my life on August 30, 2014!


I love to explore new places as often as possible, be it domestic or international! (Croatia)


Children are so amazing and resilient! It has been such an incredible experience spending 3 years working in Harlem and 2 years in Milwaukee, as a Special Education Teacher. At times I believe these kids taught me as much as I taught them :)


I LOOOOVE food! Generally I'm a health nut, but let's be real, anything chocolate or cheese makes my heart sing! (I mean I'm French so it makes sense). Thanksgiving feast is where you will find me on cloud nine.

Puppies!! (running too!)

I looooove dogs! I grew up with 2 shar-peis, and have just always adored having them around. They are also great running buddies, especially for marathon training!

Delightful Tea!

I will often be found drinking tea, any tea. Iced/hot, green/black, fruity/herbal, you name it, I'm drinking it. I need something to keep me going!


I grew up in New York, just an hour outside the city. I lived in NY for the past 3 years, teaching Special Education in Harlem. I am infatuated with all of the hidden gems NYC has to offer, and love to travel here as often as possible!
