“Chelsi was wonderful to work with on our special wedding day at the Mendocino Coast. She is outgoing, fun, caring, accommodating and talented.  She made photography seem effortless (which I know it is not). I had a fantastic experience working with her!”


Crystal & Dominic

“A huge huge huge shoutout to McFadden Studios these incredible photos. It was our first photo shoot together ever and she made us feel so comfortable, and really wanted to highlight who we were as a couple. She truly went above and beyond for us, following us down long muddy roads and hiking down to this waterfall with full equipment, after a storm, in flats! To give us what we wanted. We are ecstatic about the way these turned out and we are beyond grateful. We can’t wait for her to photograph our wedding!!”

“My husband and I hired Chelsi  to photograph our wedding ceremony in Fort Bragg. She was very accommodating and able to meet with us around our hectic schedule. 

Chelsi was on time, friendly and made me feel at ease about the process which was extremely helpful as I was nervous about the wedding. We received our photograph via an online photo album which we were able to share with friends and family. We are extremely satisfied with how our photos turned out! Thanks so much!”

“Chelsi and I have been best friends since childhood, and when she took photos for my husband's and my five year anniversary, she did an AMAZING job!  

Chelsi and I had talked about us getting in front of her lens for years, but when we'd come for visits we'd get to talking and reminiscing and forget about going out for a photo shoot.  But on this occasion, we finally got around to it and I was THRILLED with the results!

Chelsi is not only a great friend, but an amazing photographer and truly goes the extra mile to make her subjects feel comfortable and natural while taking amazing photos in awesome locations!  I love checking out Chelsi's photos and seeing what she's getting into next, how she's changing people's lives with her amazing work and capturing the special moments of their lives.”
