Hey there! We are Leroy Jr. and Chelsea Tademy – a husband and wife duo who fuse our creative talents into one small business that is making big moves. Leroy is the main photographer and technical guru who knows his camera, gear, and business backward and forward. Chelsea works as an office manager who also puts her graphic design degree to good use creating fun new products for our clients while managing the social media, design related work, and promotional work behind the scenes.
We learned three very important things early on in our relationship:
In 2010 we learned the basics of photography and enjoyed many “photo adventures” as we worked together to complete assignments for a photography course at McNeese State University. We began to realize more and more that photography was something we both enjoyed doing, and more importantly, we enjoyed doing together. The year after we were married we welcomed our precious daughter into the world. She came into our lives in March of 2011 and we absolutely fell in love with photographing her; by July of that same year, we decided to take Chelsea’s graphic design degree and our mutual passion for photography and form it into Tademy Design and Photography. We have found that among all of the wonderful things there are out there to specialize in photographing, weddings and seniors are our favorites.
We have spent 6+ years learning and developing our business and are now both full-time business owners. We are thankful for the many opportunities God has blessed us with to meet new people, develop new friendships, and grow and learn together. We look forward to following the plan He has set before us and share special memories with our clients for as long as He leads us to do so!
