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.
Nelli is such a joy to work with. We had a bit of rain early in the day, and I swear her positivity and great attitude made me feel so comfortable and at peace. She's incredibly talented and gives direction really well. We are just thrilled with how our photos turned out and I'm genuinely sad I won't have a reason to work with her again anytime soon. I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone. She's a total professional and an absolute joy to work with. Thank you Nelli!!
We feel so lucky that we got to work with Nelli on our wedding day. She was an absolute joy to work with and everyone that came in contact with her commented on how sweet, thoughtful, and professional she was. She beautifully captured all the intimate details of our wedding and was so graceful and methodical about it; she was never intrusive or “in the way.” She even offered help throughout the day (guided us through cutting our wedding cake) and kept us on schedule. She was also great at making you feel comfortable behind the camera and gave simple instruction so that you felt natural and not posed or cheesy. If you are looking for timeless, elegant, gorgeous photos with a modern feel, Nelli is absolutely the best- can not recommend her enough!
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!
