The Process


The consult

 Once I receive your inquiry, expect to receive an email and text to schedule a consultation via phone call. This is important because custom wedding photography is an important experience. This is where I find out how I can best serve you.


Start the process

After I learn about what you want, we will then sit down via Zoom or in person and discuss the details of your vision for your day. Within our meeting, we develop a personalized wedding package that fits you. This step is the most important part because I use this conversation to begin to connect your personality, story and photography into one great experience.



Once we begin working together, I will help you prepare and know what to expect. I will help you plan your engagement session, beginning with outfit recommendations and location scouting. I will also give you information that helps you focus on what is important and not get caught up on unnecessary details.  I have curated the entire preparation process to make sure you feel comfortable knowing you are in good hands.


The wedding day

On your wedding day, there are many moving parts to include the moments you may not think are important, but will be after everything is done. My aim is to help you feel comfortable trusting me with documenting your entire vision, and then some, while having a great time.  My favorite parts  are  the Bride and Groom portraits, so we will make sure to have enough time for those, too. I photograph all the traditional moments, as well as the candid, so you will have these photos to look back on long after the day is done.


Final Touches

After your wedding is finished, I begin the work of cultivating a colorfully designed photography collection that tells your story. Within this timeframe, I do light retouching, while pre-designing your wedding album design. Expect that around six weeks after your wedding,  the work will be finished, and you will be able to see the results of everything we created throughout this process.


Reveal Session

This is where we meet and you see your photos for the first time to include a slideshow if we are in person. In your reveal, I will also help you narrow down your options to make your final album design a simpler and enjoyable process.

We got our money’s worth and MORE! I seriously got so lucky choosing Nelya.

 Nelya is the BEST! Before my wedding she met with us to get to know us and figure out what we wanted captured at our wedding. This meant so much to me because my pictures turned out to be everything I wanted and more!!  

Our pictures turned out better than I could have imagined.
