Hi, I am Chelsea.

 I am an old soul and a lover of laughter. Besides running my business- I am a devoted yogi, fierce dog mom, classic lit connoisseur, and vegan baker. I adore traveling! Colombia, where my dad is from, is one of my favorite places to venture to but I have a long list of worldy locations I want to wander to. I enjoy a slow life full of intimate moments with my family, friends, and every animal I can find. Folk music and coffee fuel my days. I don't have it all figured out when it comes to this life this but I know three things to be true: Montana is where the heart is, shoes are never necessary, and only kindness matters in the end. 


“We love Chelsea so much! She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and her editing is absolutely beautiful. We even brought our two pups to our most recent session, one being a very timid Bernese Mountain dog. She was so calm and patient with him and captured so many gorgeous photos of our entire little family. Chelsea is an amazing photographer and person!”

“My experience with Carbonell Photography was perfect. Chelsea never failed to make me feel beautiful and my session was stress-free. All my pictures were given to me way earlier than expected, which was a great surprise! I highly recommend anyone who wants a natural vibe to book with Chelsea.”

“I fell in love with Carbonell Photography's aesthetic- bright, natural, full of life! Chelsea surpassed all of our expectations and captured our day perfectly. She is so talented at her craft and moreover such a wonderful person to be around.”

“Chelsea is the best of the best! Her eye & technique for capturing the absolute best photos for you and yours, is the best decision we made. She was absolutely wonderful to work with- easy going and I was able to trust the artist she is on my big day- knowing she was going to make sure everything was beyond my expectations. I SWOON over her work and highly recommend”
