meet chelbe!

I'm Chelbe {SHEL-BE} - vintage lover, passion seeking, red-headed daughter of God living in that sweet spot of introvert and extrovert qualities. 

I enjoy quality time with the people I love. The memories I make with them are forever cherished and kept close to my heart. I know our time together is sacred. Because of this I honor the time you have with your loved ones. Most importantly the person you found and chose to call lover

I treat your day as if it were my very own. With the same respect, intention, and care. As we work together, I take great joy in getting to know how you as a couple - your love story is where my inspiration begins. 

Other forms of inspiration: old movies, anything vintage, nature, music, all things romantic and timeless, modern styles, and my marriage.

When I'm not behind the camera I can be found taking on another DIY project, dancing in the kitchen with my kids, or playing Xbox with my husband. 

I cannot wait to meet you and I'm so excited you're journey has landed you here!
