Meet Chaise Tinsley

The Short Answer:
As a wedding and elopement photographer, my style lands somewhere between tidy and trendy, minimal and magical. The alternative brides and rugged brands resonate with me most. I love anything outdoors and try to incorporate that as much as possible into my life and my work.

Drop me a note

From the smallest moments to the grandest mountains. It is all worthy of being captured.

As an Atlanta-based designer turned photographer, I’ve explored many corners of creative. What I’ve found along the way is that I adore photography. It speaks to my heart in the same way a good song can speak to our souls. I’ve always had a fascination with memories and the way they shape our feelings and decisions for years to come.

I’ve been gifted the unique task of preserving these memories for my clients. I seek out the purest moments and capture them before they’re gone. I want to see the “you, when you think no one else is watching”. The authentic, the real, the vibrant – whether it’s pretty or not. It is all worthy.

A unique background makes for a good story, right?

I have loved photography since my backyard selfie days with my bright red Kodak and over-highlighted hair. If you know, you know. I’ve got a degree in Hospitality Management, with minors in both Advertising and Tourism + Events. I’m also certified in Wedding Planning (yes, that’s a real thing). I’ve enjoyed everything from event coordination for an award-winning restaurant, to Graphic Design for an Atlanta ad agency. Having an interesting background gives me a really unique view as a photographer. Not only can I follow you around and snap some pictures, I can make sure the shoot goes off without a hitch and stays on schedule. It’s like having multiple experts in one.

I want to live the lifestyle that I promote

When I tell you that the adventure is the most important thing second to those you love, I want it to come from a place of truth. I try to get out and explore as much as possible. My husband and I eloped in Iceland and it was one of the best decisions I ever made (after marrying him). Whatever your dream is, do that. And do it unapologetically with passion and soul.
