Book a Lovers Lifestyle Session with Gernelle Nelson

You don't want generic dime a dozen photos right? Right! Pictures at the local park can't compare to real experiences at amazing destinations. If you're an adventurous romantic couple in search of images that will capture real moments outside of the photography studio, you've come to the right place. I’ll be there to capture each moment while the two of you:

  • Spend a romantic afternoon at home
  • Exchange vows on a mountain top
  • Explore the Santa Monica Pier
  • Enjoy cabin life in Palo Duro
  • Go food tasting at Venice Beach
  • Swim and picnic at Hamilton Pool in Austin
  • Try local cuisine in Osaka Japan
  • Share beignets in New Orleans’ French Quarter

While everyone else is heading for the local botanical garden, let's go somewhere and capture a real date or vacay just for two. If you're going to spend your hard earned money on professional images, let's make it worth your while!

We loved our experience!

Gernelle was very sweet to work with. She was focused on what we wanted and envisioned in our minds while helping us to make the best decisions based on her expertise. It is a great blend of both. Testimonial from Rico E.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long until we see our pictures?

It's 2018 and the days of waiting a week or even a month to see your images are over! Gernelle Nelson has a 24 hour turnaround time on non-wedding lifestyle images! In other words, you could see the edited photos the very next day! Just be sure to schedule your reveal date during your consultation. Most lovers sessions result in 50-250 great images to choose from. The longer the session, the more images you’ll have to choose from.

Whats a reveal session?

This is when I meet with you to show you the finished images for the first time. I’ll come to your home (or you can meet me at my location) and show you all of the images from your shoot. Once you’ve seen your images, we’ll order your prints and any other products you’d like with your print credit. You’re welcome to purchase additional products by bank card. Afterwards, I’ll email you a link where you can view the entire gallery online and download your purchased digital files. This gallery will be available for viewing for 30 days. During this time, you can buy more digital files or prints directly from the gallery on your computer or mobile device.

What’s included in your photography collections?

All lovers collections include pre-session planning, destination photography coverage at the location of your choice*, posing and creative direction during the shoot, a reveal session, optimized digital negatives, and print credit. Print credit is money that goes towards buying prints, digital files, albums or wall displays. Additional retouching is also available at a separate rate.

* Some locations require permits and fees before photography takes place. Others don't allow photography at all. Do your research!

What if we only want digital files?

Print credit is built into every single collection I offer because I want my couples to have what they really want; tangible photographs and albums. Every time you purchase a print that an 8x10 or larger, you get an optimized digital negative of that image to share online. If you get to the reveal session and decide that you just want to download the digital files, you can buy them individually or as a bundle. I only want you to buy the photos you love.

Sessions start at $250 and go up from there depending on what your plans are for your lovers portrait experience. For a full description of my services and prices, fill out the form below or call me now to schedule an in-person consultation. My number is 972-364-7815. You can text me if you like!
