About Aerial Tallahassee & Aerial Thomasville
Alex and Chelsea Workman moved to Tallahassee in 2014. Through a series of unexpected events, The Workmans found themselves 6 months later, stuck in a city they didn’t love with a baby on the way and very little family and friends nearby. They had to make the decision to make the best of the situation and learn to love the place they would be for the foreseeable future. Playing off their backgrounds in photography, Alex convinced Chelsea to let him buy a drone and they started taking aerial photos of Tallahassee. The first picture was posted on June 15, 2015 with the hashtag #AerialTallahassee. Their goal was to show family and friends photos of their new home from a different perspective.
They created social media accounts for people to follow and through friends sharing images and word spreading, Aerial Tallahassee quickly became a way for The Workmans to help tell the story of their new city from the sky. Fast forward to 2018 and many adventures outside the Tallahassee city limits, they found themselves frequently visiting Thomasville for business, so they wanted to challenge themselves in the same way they had a few years before and begin to explore a new city from the sky. On September 4, 2018, the first Aerial Thomasville photo was posted, with the goal to keep showing friends and family a new perspective of a city close to home!
About The Workmans
The Workmans are a husband and wife creative team in Tallahassee, FL. Alex and Chelsea have a heart for helping organizations tell their story. They married 2014 and moved to Tallahassee, FL shortly after. Having to be very intentional about learning to love their new city, they developed a community project called Aerial Tallahassee, telling the story of Tallahassee from the sky. In 2016, they started The Workmans, a company focused on commercial photography & creating short films for businesses, organizations, agencies and individuals, equipping them to better tell their story. Through exploring their community and documenting many stories, in 2017, The Workmans began capturing portraits and telling the stories of many of the refugee families who fled for their lives and now call Tallahassee home, through a series called #RefugeesofTLH. In 2018, after the Hurricane Michael caused massive devastation, The Workmans founded the Never Forgotten Coast Campaign.
Alex and Chelsea have two sons. They love spending time together as a family and exploring their community, especially through food and coffee.
