“I would describe my style of wedding photography as modern documentary,” says Chelsea Cannar matter-of-factly. “It’s vibrant, contemporary, observant and doesn’t take itself too seriously. I love to play with perspective in my compositions and show a mix of raw reality, the beauty of the day and a little humor. I aim to capture an honest and emotive story of what truly happened at their wedding through the use of engaging compositions and opulent, rich colors.”

In addition to that, Cannar is a big fan of getting in close with her camera. “You’ll often find me enjoying chatting with guests and helping break down personal barriers,” she says. “I throw myself into each wedding, meaning I can shoot more with a participant’s viewpoint than an observer’s. The closer perspectives can draw people in and make the photos feel intimate and immersive.”

To help her along, Cannar’s current kit consists of a Sony A7 III and Sony A7R III, A Sony 35mm f/1.4G, Zeiss 85mm f/1.8, Sony Zeiss 50mm f/1.8, a Zeiss 25mm f/2, a Samyang 18mm f/2.8 and two Godox flashes for direct flash on dance floor.
