All couples considering day after shoots — look no further. Just look at these photos from Chelsea Mitchell — you get a abundant sampling of the prettiness, but there’s a sharper focus on the bride and groom with none of the stress of squeezing it in on your wedding day. Besides, it’d be a shame not to capture this bride’s stunning Vera Wang gown and florals from Trace Robinson, right?


From the Bride… When Chelsea Mitchell said yes to shooting our day after wedding shoot we could not have been more excited! We absolutely love her use of film and her artistic eye! Ryan and I originally met on this same beach playing volleyball seven years ago. We thought it would be fun to revisit the location where we first met to take our first newlywed photos. Our goal with these photos was to to capture our long lasting love in artistic portraits that we could frame and keep on our walls for many years to come.
