I’m Chelsea,
a documentary photographer capturing intimate weddings and lifestyle portraits.


I believe in capturing real life as it happens, those messy in-between moments and the raw emotions that comes from being human. Those moments, they tell your unique story.


I’m a down to earth soul with a passion for deep conversation and specialty coffee.
I’m formally trained as an interior designer and have had a camera in hand for the last 10 years. It’s an art that has allowed me to connect with the most wonderful people and to capture irreplaceable memories for them, honestly what more could I ask for?


I live a simple life with my husband Corey usually exploring coffee shops on our red Vespa scooter and planning our next adventure.
I’m currently based between Brooklyn, NY and Washington, DC and available for travel.

Chelsea has a unique poise that keeps you focused on the joy of the moment, while she organizes the guests and the logistics for your photos with impressive grace. She as an eye for the artistic, and we now have fabulous photos from a number of locations around DC that we will cherish forever. Thank you, Chelsea, for making our day a success—we couldn’t have done it without you!

My husband and I are so grateful to Chelsea Albright for being our wedding photographer! She was extremely helpful in planning the timeline of events for our our wedding day, and she had great ideas on how to make sure our wedding, though small in size, was still enormously special.
