'm a lover of the outdoors, gorgeous light and real moments. I work hard to photograph the way it actually felt — from entrepreneurial roller coasters to the way your partner makes you laugh to all of the beautiful chaos of family life.
My work is rooted in the belief that we're all connected. Inclusivity is my jam - I want to photograph families and brands of every shape, kind, and color. I feel incredibly lucky that I get to document the beauty in our human experience and I'm grateful for every client that steps in front of my lens.
Whether I’m capturing your brand story or your family lifestyle images, my goal is to always take the photos for you that I would want for myself. Photos that remind me that life is both hard and beautiful, hilarious and sweet. Photos that tell your unique story with movement, connection, and glowing light.
If you just need a few shots of the fam smiling at the camera, I’m probably not your girl. But if you want to capture those moments that touch your heart and make you smile years later — give me a shout. I put my soul into my work and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you.
our artwork deserves a place in your home. Every full family session booked with me comes with a complementary artwork credit, so that you can start getting those precious memories off of your phone and onto your wall.
The experience of ordering artwork and albums should be as easy and stress-free as possible. Your online gallery connects directly to my gallery store, where you can quickly and easily order from some of the best labs in the country and have your art shipped directly to your home.
Chandra has been taking our family pictures for years, and everytime she captures something I've never seen before. She goes out of her way to scout the best locations, the best lighting, the best time of day; she works overtime on every aspect of producing stunning photography.
She has great communication through the whole process (seeking input and offering ideas) and a very fast turn around time. She's the best out there.
Chandra is the best photographer I've ever worked with. We've now had our family photos done twice with her and I couldn't possibly be happier. Chandra has a natural ability to evoke calm and ease in a photoshoot; she has perfect cues to help you figure out what to do and enough guidance to help you enjoy your time with your family to really get quality photos that speak and paint a feeling and story.
Chandra has great locations that she scouts and is a wizard with using natural light to her advantage. The feeling and stories in the images really look like she captured private moments and paint this heartwarming result that is something I've never experienced before. I'm overwhelmed looking at her photos trying to choose my favorites because there are so many. I'm so impressed and completely thrilled about our experience.
We had a business branding session with Chandra Wicke Photography and she is truly a gem in a landscape often saturated with photographers. Easy to work with, excellent communication, took her time to really get a feel for our business, our image, and who we are as individuals. Not only was the entire process seamless but she was so personable and engaging as an artist. She had us laughing and completely at ease within minutes. Our images turned out truly beautiful. She elevated our art by carefully crafting her own to make us shine. She uses light thoughtfully and masterfully. Her work is flawless. Her communication is impeccable. Truly a professional. Cannot wait to hire her again as our business grows.
I feel so lucky to have worked with Chandra! She's an extremely talented photographer, and a gem of a human to boot. My office recently worked with her to take professional head shots of our team, and the experience couldn't have been better. She is warm, friendly, and personable and made everyone (even those of us who hate getting our pictures taken) feel comfortable right away. She took her time to make sure to find the perfect lighting, suggested poses to us that were flattering and felt natural, and showed us her work for feedback throughout the shoot. I can't suggest her enough. Thank you so much, Chandra!
I have had two amazing experiences with Chandra Wicke Photography. I have a kids clothing company and she has done two photo shoots for my company. First of all, her work is absolutely beautiful, magical and amazing. She is very talented at photography and takes quality photographs that really capture the feeling of each moment. It is a gift to have that kind of sensibility.
Additionally, she is so communicative and responsive. She organizes all of the details, she responds to any questions really fast. She is so reliable and professional. Finally, she is a genuinely kind, friendly and fun person to work with! I can’t recommend her enough. You will enjoy the process and be amazed by the photographs in the end!
What a joy to have Chandra capture a slice of time! She's casual AND precise, professional AND hilarious, and she makes the most camera-wary kiddos (and parents) look like their true selves. I love that she doesn't replicate the same photos a million other families have--she really hones in on the details specific to your family. It's unique, surprisingly, moving and worth every penny.
Your slideshow brought me tears of joy. Thank you for giving me the best birthday present any mother could ask for. I was laughing out loud and emotional all at the same time. I told my husband that I love these photos and the thought of Max looking at them in 10, 20, 30 years from now brings me tears of joy. THANK YOU! I am literally crying right now.
I booked Chandra to take my author photos, photos for my website, and general stock photos I can use for my newsletter and social media. I spoke to a few photographers, but chose Chandra because she was very detailed and organized. I was impressed that she came to our meeting prepared and had read my writing so she knew the kind of writer I am. We had an in-person meeting to discuss the day of the shoot. The actual shoot was a lot of fun—and busy because I had asked for photos with me, my family, my two pugs, and one cat. Chandra got it all and made everyone, even the kiddos laugh. I'm so happy with the entire process from start to finish. Her photos turned out fantastic. I can't wait to use them!
Chandra's pictures are undoubtedly a beautiful symphony of light, background, and subjects. However, her pictures go beyond. They offer something more than a flattering snapshot of the "I" and "you." Chandra captures "the we", the connection between partners, family members, and friends. Her pictures weave a beautiful narrative of love that showcases the authentic and even messy moments that make life fun and put the hard times in perspective.
Hiring Chandra to photograph our micro wedding was the best decision ever. We purposely sought out a family photographer because we wanted the photographs to capture the love and joy of an intimate family event, and they did just that. I am quite an awkward person, but the silly prompts she used for my husband and I resulted in the loveliest, most natural photos that captured the happiness we felt with each other that day. Other than being an extremely talented photographer, she's also very professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend her.
Chandra is PURE MAGIC! Our family has done two shoots with her so far, and the way she interacts with people, children, and families is so special and eventually shines through in final images. Photo shoots can be stressful to plan for, but not with Chandra. She gives expert guidance on wardrobe, location, timing of day (for best lighting), and everything in between. I can't wait for my family to work with her again!
