hello!

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, both backward and forward. Chelsea puts her graphic design degree to good use creating custom designed products for our clients, while also managing the social media, design work, and promotional work behind the scenes.

In 2010, we were a newly-wed couple learning the basics of photography and enjoying many “photo adventures” as we worked together to complete assignments for a photography course at McNeese State University. Over time we began to realize that photography was something we really enjoyed doing together. In early 2011, we welcomed our first child into the world and found ourselves investing in a camera to document her first milestones.

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 LLC. We dug our boots in and started learning everything we could about photography and running a business. Back then we wrote a 5 year plan that included both of us running this business full time at Year 5, but the Lord's plan is always better than our own and by 2013 (only 2 years later), we were both working from home full-time!

Fast-forward 10 years and we have watched the Lord bless and grow our business to what it is today! As of 2021, we have celebrated 10 years in business, our 11 year wedding anniversary, and are the proud parents to 5 beautiful children. We have photographed places as far away as Israel, Boston and Washington D.C. We have worked with countless families, sports organizations, local businesses, as well as national businesses and brands. 

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 are slowly watching our small (but mighty) team grow, and we look forward to sharing special memories with both our team and our clients, for as long as the Lord leads us to do so.

Leroy has over 10 years of photography experience, but still enjoys learning new things about his craft. He is outgoing, kind, and just the guy you want around if you need to brainstorm ideas.
