Hi    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, My ideal date night is fresh guacamole with a huge bag of blue corn chips and eating it watching the sun set. I live most of the week in workout pants and messy buns.
