Hi, I’m Nelya, a Wedding Photographer in Knoxville

Unlike other photographers who just focus on capturing the day, I help you with the planning and preparing for great photos from the start.

I lead with an adventurous eye and look to capture a wedding with photos that dance between a discerning balance of real moments and cover-worthy photos. You are amazing, you just need a little direction

She made our wedding a day that we will never forget. We will forever have amazing photos of our great day!
