'm a lover of the outdoors, gorgeous light and real moments. I work hard to photograph the way it actually felt — from tiny toddler arms around your neck 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 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.

y goal is always to 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 family or brand 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 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 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.
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 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.
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!
"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."
