Tennessee Elopement Photographer

Welcome loves,

I AM CHELSEA

A mother to two wild boys and military spouse to my high school sweetheart, Matthew. Together we photograph elopements and intimate weddings throughout our home state and destinations across the globe.

Our passion for elopements came after realizing Matthew and I didn't get the most out of our own wedding experience. There is a unique story behind each photo taken and our inspiration is driven by both small and candid moments.

The couples we serve are best friends who are ardently in love with each other. They value genuine intimacy and prefer to have their day documented from beginning to end.

When we aren't with camera in hand, you can find us dancing to vinyl records, driving through the hills of Tennessee and cooking in the kitchen together with our little boys.

LOVE NOTE

Sunset Cliffs Elopement

Chelsea is amazing in her work, organization, professionalism, and art from

start to finish. Her attention to detail is spectacular and she

truly made the entire experience more meaningful than I could have imagined. From the special day-of-elopement gift to the photo reveal party that included our favorite mimosas and sweets, every detail was thoughtful and added to the ongoing celebration of our elopement. The photos are STUNNING! Chelsea understands what is important about eloping...celebrating love...and it was so special to have her capture our true selves in photographs.
