NELLI WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY! She has such a vibrant and unique way of breaking the ice, creating a moment, and making you feel beautiful in your own skin. She captured us so well and we will forever smile at these photos—because of the beauty and the memory. She went above and beyond to get the best shot and create the best experience. I will recommend 10/10 times and would love to work with her again.
Working with Nelli was absolutely AMAZING!! She is such a talented individual. Her photos speak for themselves. She made us feel so comfortable and confident. Her photos are so beautiful and timeless. Nelli is so much more than just a photographer, from beginning to end she offered advice and guidance and made the whole process so easy and fun. I can’t stop looking at our photos. She truly captured some of the most beautiful moments of my husband and I, which will we cherish forever. I highly recommend booking with Nelli! You will not regret it, you’ll look back in a few years and be happy that you booked with her.
We hired Nelli as our wedding photographer and she did not disappoint. She is very talented and captured every moment perfectly. We had a winter wedding in Tahoe and she made everything look like a winter wonderland. She has a timeless style that is creative yet natural. Nelli was easy to work with and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire day. We received so many compliments on our photos and could not be happier with how they turned out. Thank you Nelli for capturing our big day and for being awesome!
When working in a high stress environment like weddings, you don't want anyone who will add to that stress. Nelli bought a sense of cool confidence to day, and makes you feel at ease. She has a very comfortable way of guiding through 'poses' and the shots end up feeling very natural. We absolutely loved having her shoot, but we were also pleasantly surprised at how low of a profile she kept through out the day. Normally the photographer tends to have a high presence, and you always know where they are, but Nelli seamlessly blends in and doesn't distract. All the while getting the shots you need.
Aaron is a videographer himself, and feels more comfortable and confident with Nelli's work than most other photographers he has worked with. She gave us a few shots the day after the wedding so we could post to social media, she knows millennials. When we got the link for the photos, we said 'Nelli please send us the right link. The people in these photos are supermodels.
There's something magical about Nelli's work. She photographed my wedding and did it with so much grace. Not to mention, our photos are absolutely beautiful! Nelli has a way of capturing the unseen. She makes the intangible become tangible and with a touch of magic. We wouldn't have had anyone else photograph our wedding day. She's an amazing photographer and I'm always looking forward to see more of her work!
