Hello & Welcome!

My name is Chelsea, owner and lead photographer of Carbonell Photography. You will ususally find me sipping coffee, surrounded by animals, and laughing a lot. I am engaged to my soul mate and we have traveled the country together. Along our way, we rescued two dogs, Buster and Oscar, and they are truly my joy. I live a vegan and cruelty free lifestyle and spend much of my time volunteering at sanctuary farms and dog pounds. I also teach yoga when I'm not shooting!

Other Tidbits

Carbonell Photography started in 2013 as a fashion photography brand. I was highly interested in the field and learned under some incrediable photographers. I was even named one of top emerging photographers of 2014 by Lemonade and Lenses magazine!

In 2015 I was hired to shoot and produce for Victoria Secret. I learned A LOT and had an amazing time but realized a corporate setting was not for me. I took everything I learned in fashion and decided to make something unique.

2016 I launched a senior & wedding photography brand built on the editorial and natural model vibe that attracted me to fashion in the first place. I wanted to give everyone the chance to experience what models do; being and feeling beautiful without a lot of makeup or fluff. Which is where the 'wild and free' part of my brand came from. I strive to capture true personality in an editorial yet candid fashion! If this sounds like your style, lets chat!
