Videographer & Photographer for the wild & weird.
Serving The Triangle, The Triad, Western NC, Southern NC, and The Coast & Outer Banks
I’ve been photographing big, traditional weddings for the last 10 years, but I never really understood them since my husband and I eloped. We didn’t want to be the center of attention, and we didn’t want to spend money on something that wasn’t authentically us.
Then, a couple of years ago, I attended a workshop and met another photographer who only shot elopements in the mountains, and I had no idea that couples were doing that! I immediately pivoted towards elopements, and now I offer videography and photography for elopements and small weddings.
Your wedding day should be all about you, without conforming to the standard traditions, and we can’t wait to help you celebrate your love in a more meaningful, laid-back, intimate way. Whether it’s just you two or you bring along some close friends and family, I’m one of the few people in the world lucky enough to witness the moment when you vow to spend the rest of your lives together, and through my lens, others are able to experience that as well.
With a day authentically crafted around you, your elopement deserves just as much, if not more, videography and photography coverage. The possibilities for elopements are endless, but some of our favorite ideas include stargazing, riding a hot air balloon, renting ATVs, and kayaking.
So, where will your elopement adventure take us?
Q: What’s your title/position in your business?
A: Chelsi Jarrell, Owner & Videographer/Photographer
Q: What is your favorite thing about elopements?
A: The freedom to be yourself without the expectations of others.
Q: Tell us about your favorite elopement!
A: My favorite so far was a couple who, due to COVID, couldn’t get married in Banff, AB, Canada like they originally wanted, but they decided to go ahead and get married anyway. They got married at this cute little Vegas-style chapel in Asheville, and then we headed to the “silo” to get some pictures. It started pouring down rain, but we still made the most of it! It was perfectly them, and that’s what I love about elopements. It’s not about the show, it’s about the love.
A: I would love to photograph or film an elopement at all of the National Parks. I would also love to shoot a roller skating wedding!
Q: What’s a fun fact about yourself?
A: I’m obsessed with movies & roller skating.
