Knoxville Wedding Photographer

I’M NELYA, I photograph weddings both Knoxville Tennessee weddings, as well as, destination weddings and elopements around the world!

I am inspired by genuine moments, gorgeous bouquets, engagement rings, long veils, and stunning parts of nature to incorporate into your photos. My goal is to create photos for you to remember the day with. What I enjoy most about photographing weddings is getting to know you before the day and really getting a feel for your preferences.

When I am not out photographing weddings, you can find me at the ice rink coaching little tiny hockey players, spending time with family.

Your Day

your day should unfold as naturally as possible.

I love your photographs to have real emotion, genuine expressions, and authentic moments in them.

The Experience

I start booking weddings about a year and a half before the wedding date.   All other work I book about 2-5 months out.

For your wedding, I typically say 1-3months but depending on the season you could get them as soon as one month after your wedding. For portrait sessions it’s 2-3 weeks. 

 

I am so lucky to have the best brides and grooms on the earth, I love to get to know each of you all personally I want to be able to capture the real emotion and feeling on your wedding day. I only take a limited number of bookings, I want to make sure I’m the perfect fit for each one, there for my availability may be limited.
