Kansas City Photography by Chelsea Alderman
Chelsea Alderman is an artistic jill-of-all-trades. In her spare time, she writes and directs comedy thrillers, relying on her talent for making "people pretty for a living." That sense of insouciant charm carries over into her wedding photography where macroshots of bouquets fit right in with candid photos of flower girls sitting on a church stoop during their state-mandated 15-minute break. Like her photos of nuptials, her portraits use almost impossibly vibrant colors and unexpected images, such as a young woman wrapped in Christmas lights, to dive beneath the surface and evoke a subject's personality.
