Where will your adventure begin?

I've stood at the back of many ceremonies moved by vows exchanged from one heart to another. These vows are filled with promises of dedication, honor, respect, and unconditional love.
It's the couple before me that inspires me
for the rest of the evening and evenings to come.
It's another unique love story taking the step forward in choosing their 
forever person.

You are who I see.

The way you make each other laugh, the wink across the room, the hand stretched out waiting for you to take it, the seat pulled out for you to sit down, and even the smallest touch on the small of your back as you walk through the crowd. 

These are the moments I live for. These are the moments I'm waiting on edge to capture and preserve for you because we both know it's not the ceremony that create the marriage, it's the couple.

And that's who I intend to bring to life...

you're speaking my language

"I had the best time during my photoshoot and the images turned out amazing! I would definitely recommend salt to anyone."

- Jonathon -

"I am completely over the moon about my images from salt - I will definitely be coming back in the future! "

Of course! Shoot me an email requesting to see a wedding gallery. I'll send it over ASAP.

QUESTION 3 // can i see a full gallery?

Girl, my bags are packed! Just tell me where we are headed!

QUESTION 2 // do you travel?

My *6 hour packages include only one photographer. While coverage *8 hours and more includes 2 photographers. I understand everyone's day looks differently, if you're unsure about how many photographers you'll need, let's chat about your timeline to see if two photographers would benefit you. As always, if you need to add a second photographer you can. 

what couples are asking:

QUESTION 1 // how many photographers are included?

If 2020 taught our industry anything, it was to expect the unexpected. I will work along side of you and your other vendors to find a new date for your wedding! We will get you married and make it a memorable occasion without a doubt!

QUESTION 6 // WHAT HAPPENS IF i have to reschedule?

I know you're dying to get your hands on your gallery! I send sneak peeks within 72 hours and your full gallery in 6-8 weeks!

QUESTION 5 // HOW LONG DOES IT TYPICALLY TAKE TO GET IMAGES?

Yes I am!

QUESTION 4 // Are you insured?

what couples are asking:

To book with me, I send our contract for us to sign, along with an invoice for 40% of your package cost to be paid. Once I have both items, your date is secure!

QUESTION 8 // HOW Do i book with you?

Yes I do! After your retainer is paid, I divide the final cost into two payments. Your able to customize those payments by letting me know which day of the month you'd like them to come out on. These payments are also automated and come with a friendly reminder email so there are zero surprises.

QUESTION 7 // do you offer payment plans?

what couples are asking:

"I consider her a
friend"

From our engagement photographs in Cade's Cove, we knew she would be perfect! She was adventurous and patient. She was able to offer us incredible direction and quickly learned what we needed as a couple. (Neither of us are naturals in front of a camera.)
I remember texting Chelbe days before the wedding, reflecting on how I considered her a friend. Her responsiveness and eagerness to get to know her brides I imagine is unparalleled. There were numerous times she offered reassurance and confidence, electronically and in person snapping photographs.
That incredible professionalism and character is compounded by her immensely creative talent. Her photographs truly allow us to relive our perfect day with each viewing. We will most certainly include her in any future photograph needs we have and strongly recommend her to all family and friends!

Josie + David

"Chelbe
is one
of a kind!"

We have never taken any sort of professional pictures before and we are very awkward. She knew how to pose us, make us feel comfortable, and she has an amazing eye for scenery. She was great to work with.

Taylor & Stephen

"fun,
warm,
personable.."

Chelbe was so fun to work with and helped capture some amazing moments. She stuck out the rain with us but in turn took some beautiful pictures.

Lexi & Brain

"Fantastic and original!"

Absolutely wonderful photographer who really cares about you and your experience! I highly recommend Chelbe to all those who are looking for a high level of personal service with an end result of fantastic and original photographs to capture your special moments!!

Devan & Robert

"get ready to be wowed"

She is very attentive to the needs of the bride and groom. I (bride) was running late on the wedding day and she just let me get ready no rush. She was great during the wedding madness and so sweet the first time we met her for the engagement session. On pictures get ready I be wowed they are absolutely awesome! Couldn’t thank her enough for being such a great photographer and such a sweet professional person.

Naome + Grant

"we absolutely loved chelbe!"

It was like we'd known her for years! She was so wonderful to work with, highly recommend her!

Bailee & Daniel

"we had an awesome experience!"

Chelbe did an excellent job bonding with us and making us feel comfortable in front of a camera. And the results of our engagement and wedding pictures is that we look confident and pro! She gifted us with a surprising wonderful experience! We couldn’t find anyone more caring, professional and awesome! Super happy!!!!

Verena & Cameron

"Oh chelbe, she is PHENOMENAL!"

What a beautiful soul. She focused on all little details like getting the leaves out of my dress before a photo. She was delightful, adorable, fun, and made us feel like we were old friends. I would recommend her to anyone!
