ABOUT US

Welcome, we are Chelsea and Matthew Watkins. A destination wedding photography team based out of the United States. Together we travel the world photographing beautiful people in the most exquisite spaces and we would be honored to photograph your upcoming wedding at the L’Auberge Del Mar.

Matthew and I lived in San Diego for 4 years and have worked at numerous venues in the area. We have met some of the best vendors and can recommend them if needed. Below you will find three collections based off of the answers you provided. These prices can vary depending on add ons and heirloom options. We would love to hop on a call with you both to discuss the collections listed and go over any questions you may have.

Package 01

The Day One session is completely customizable and is perfect for couples who want to extend their wedding into the next day or use it for rehearsal coverage. This could be used for a romantic indoor lifestyle session or simply as a fun way to celebrate your first full day married together.

If you have family coming in from out of town this may be a great option for them to have updated family portraits the day before the wedding. These are 15 minute sessions and they are guaranteed 5 images. To reserve their space they must pay a $200 retainer fee upfront and the remaining $75 will be due the day of the session.

Our Home Movie collection includes a 2-3 minute highlight video in either color or black & white Super 8 film. These are without any sound and are truly a nostalgic way to document you with your loved ones. Watch our latest HERE.
