Intimate + Romantic Imagery: For the deeply in love

Finding the one you choose to spend the rest
of your life with is a big deal. You want to look back on this day and feel every emotion all over again.
Together, we can make it happen.

You feel emotions in a profound way. When you look back on this day years later, you want your photos to showcase all the love and joy you felt when you married the love of you life. You want to see the small in between moments like the tear he wiped from your cheek as you read your vows, just as much as the grand moments of your first kiss as husband and wife.

You value beauty in all its forms and want the perfectly imperfect captured. You want to be fully present during your day taking each moment with an intentionally unhurried approach. You want to dance with freedom at your reception, ending your day with zero regrets knowing full well your memories have been preserved with great care.

I value your day as if it were my very own. Ensuring you have a wedding season that is stress free, memorable, and truly reflects all you have been dreaming of.

You are seen. You are valued. You have my dedication and passion to serve you making your day truly unforgettable. I look forward to getting to know you and all that your heart desires.

From our engagement photographs in Cade's Cove, we knew she would be perfect! She was adventurous and patient. She was able to offer us incredible direction and quickly learned what we needed as a couple. (Neither of us are naturals in front of a camera.)
I remember texting Chelbe days before the wedding, reflecting on how I considered her a friend. Her responsiveness and eagerness to get to know her brides I imagine is unparalleled. There were numerous times she offered reassurance and confidence, electronically and in person snapping photographs.
That incredible professionalism and character is compounded by her immensely creative talent. Her photographs truly allow us to relive our perfect day with each viewing. We will most certainly include her in any future photograph needs we have and strongly recommend her to all family and friends!

"Her photographs allow
us to truly relive our day with each viewing."

We have never taken any sort of professional pictures before and we are very awkward. She knew how to pose us, make us feel comfortable, and she has an amazing eye for scenery. She was great to work with.

- Taylor + Stephen

"She knew how to make us feel comfortable in
front of the camera"

Absolutely wonderful photographer who really cares about you and your experience! I highly recommend Chelbe to all those who are looking for a high level of personal service with an end result of fantastic and original photographs to capture your special moments.
