Known for black and white and fine arts wedding photography, Chelsea LaVere of Bit of Ivory Photography has created a "photo-fam" of sorts with her brides and grooms. She prides herself on becoming good friends with her couples before, during, and after the wedding, especially for her annual photo-fam get-togethers and holiday parties.
Her ideal engaged couple appreciates the fine arts, has a bit of quirkiness, loves family and friends, and cherishes the personal touches on the big day. (It can't hurt if there are Jane Austen fans in the mix, too!) Chelsea frequently comments how much she loves the Getting Ready time at any wedding-- "it's one of my most favorite because it's the beautiful prologue to the rest of the story!"
While she is a Williamsburg-based wedding photographer, she serves all of Hampton Roads (Peninsula and Southside) and loves to travel all over Virginia and beyond.
When she's not shooting a wedding, she is a crazy cat mom of two, loves to go on international adventures, and enjoys the quiet life that is she and her husband.
