Chelsea Watkins Photography

Based In: Tennessee, Southern California


My name is Chelsea and I am first and foremost, a military spouse and mother to two wild boys. I was born and raised in the heart of Tennessee but due to being in a military family we are living part time in Southern California. When I’m not photographing ardently in love couples, I am listening to vinyl records, painting or riding around in our antique Ford Bronco.


If you haven’t noticed by now my work is a bit different than most elopement photographers and that is because I use both digital and 35mm film. Yep, the stuff that still is sent to a lab to be processed and scanned. My photographs have a fine art, timeless aesthetic to it that will look just as amazing when it’s passed down from generation to generation. I take a lot of pride into my editing process and for this reason I choose to limit the amount of elopements and intimate weddings I take each year.


Once you both decide I’m your gal. We begin discussing what your dream elopement looks like by going over what you both love and appreciate. You then will receive my custom magazine to help you prepare and answer all of your questions along with my recommended vendors. I wan’t to make sure that you both walk away with getting the very most out of your day.


Appreciate the art behind photography. Are genuine and fun. Desire a candid, intimate experience. Adore details and love to travel! PS it’s a plus if you both love to dance together!


My goal is that you walk away with beautiful images of a day that was truly authentic to who you are as a couple.

Let me document the beginning chapter of your lifelong marriage to one another. I can’t wait to share your love story!
