My name is Chelsey Somohano and I am a wedding photographer serving Tampa & Central Florida!
Simple, southern love stories.
I specialize in wedding photography that is candid, colorful, and intimate with a bit of that southern flair. I use natural light to document warm, genuine moments. I strive to create photographs with a simplicity that allows the narrative of your wedding day to unfold naturally.
If you're wearing cowboy boots under your wedding dress and your wedding venue resembles more of a barn than a church, chances are we're going to get along just fine. If you like a little bit of country music and don't mind when I say y'all, then we might just become best friends. Delicate lace wedding dresses and pretty pink peonies are just a few things that make my heart happy!

Five years ago, I stumbled upon dozens of boxes of photographs, hidden away for a lifetime in my grandmother's house. They were overflowing with photographs of days past; the day my grandmother and grandfather got married, the day my dad was born, my own parents' childhood, and many of my own childhood memories that I had only ever recalled. They were photos of everyday life, preserved in perfect, individual prints. Real, tangible things that I could hold in my hand. Finding those images, those preserved memories that I didn't even know existed, really changed my perspective about what it is I really do. This change in thinking really helped evolve my photographic style into what it is today. My intention is not only to take beautiful photographs, but to leave you feeling exactly the way you did in that moment that I captured.
When it comes to wedding photography, I consider what I do to be magic. There’s something to be said about having the ability to preserve a moment for somebody forever I love observing how people interact with each other. Everyone you love in the same place celebrating your commitment to one another. I love documenting special days. I love documenting stolen glances and hidden tears and subtle smiles and uninhibited emotion. I love capturing that look he gives you when you aren’t paying attention. I love seeing that moment when you're walking down the aisle and you sneak a quick peek at your dad. I live for those moments.
You'll always find me with a camera in my hand, whether I'm photographing a wedding or riding my horses. You might find me at the beach, competing at a rodeo, or binge-watching reruns of The Office on the couch in my sweatpants!
