Nia Chelsea, a nova scotia intimate wedding and elopement photographer


This is my journey

I’m an intimate wedding photographer based in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia but love to roam. My style is simple and natural with a focus on genuine connection. I believe in capturing honest images that speak true emotion. My work is inspired by intimate spaces, rugged coastlines, earth tones and simplicity.

I grew up in barefoot, exploring the soul of the land best through the soles of my feet. For many years, I have traveled and lived from from coast to coast. Whether I’m at home, on the road, roaming wild beaches or in the mountains, I’m always seeking to frame experiences in places I love, with people I love. I share life my my forever love, Levi and our mastiff pooch. Together, we carry a childlike faith with hearts to serve and appetites for adventure.

After experiencing my own intimate wedding, I found myself gravitating towards small weddings that truly reflect who couples are and what they value most. If you invite me into your sweet journey, I will capture your day just as you are, in a relaxed and documentary style.

our wedding story

When I was a little girl, all I wanted was to marry the cute boy I wrote about in my journal – the one who made me smile. I didn’t care for all the extra fluff or traditions. I simply just wanted to marry my best friend, my person.

During the planning process of our wedding, I felt so overwhelmed. Both of us have large families which made the guest list difficult to navigate. In our heart, we wanted our day to reflect who we are in the most simplistic and intimate way, while still honouring the people in our lives.

Levi and I said our vows by the sea on a Thursday in September. We celebrated our day with 40 close family and friends, followed by donuts and guitar jams in the living room. Our wedding was intimate, spending the day in the joy of becoming one.
