Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.
— Bruno Barbey

I fell in love with photography when I realized how happy a photo could make someone feel. There is something about the way a photo freezes a moment in time that makes it just so special … whether looking back at your senior portrait, or that photo that was taken at the family gathering years ago, there is always an emotion attached to it, because a photo truly is worth a thousand words.

When I started Chelsea Ann Bell Photography, I wasn’t exactly sure of what to expect. I didn’t realize the amazing people I would meet, the lessons I would learn, or that I could fall more in love with photography than I already was. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to do what I love on a daily basis, and I am so thankful to all of you for sharing your special moments with Chelsea Ann Bell Photography. ~


Your photographer

this is me.

Hello all! Welcome to Chelsea Ann Bell Photography and thank you for stopping by. I am so grateful that you are considering me to be your photographer!

My name is Chelsea Ann Bell and I am a photographer based in the beautiful city of Milwaukee WI. I have been known to be funny, caring, wild, and spontaneous. Throughout my life, I have always run on the belief system that anyone can be anything that they want to be, and this is something that I stick to when taking my clients photographs. When you are invited into the special moments of someones life, I believe the most important thing is to be able to capture the essence of the person, and the essence of the moment in time. When I first started Chelsea Ann Bell Photography, I focused mainly on senior portraits and families. As I started to branch out into wedding photography, I quickly realized that, not only is wedding photography something I am truly passionate about, but it is also something that I just can imagine doing for years to come. I do still love my portraits, but wedding photography holds a different place in my heart. Chelsea Ann Bell Photography is something that I hold dear to my heart, and I am so excited for where it will take me next.
