About Gernelle Nelson


I’ve always wanted to be apart of projects that spark joy and bring people closer together. Being a lifestyle and elopement photographer allows me to combine my love of travel, art and romance. Even though it’s a creative job, it’s not always fun and photos. But I’d rather put my heart into this spontaneous artist’s life than waste away in a dimly lit cubicle. I work hard, I love my clients & I love the life I’m creating for myself. I want the pictures we create together to remind you to live your life to the fullest and love deeply.

Never forget to make room for good times. Date nights, road trips, local events and cozy nights at home can give you the energy you need to face the world every day. Seeing moments like these remind us that we have an amazing life and no matter what random issues pop up, we have something wonderful to be grateful for.
