"You could sense how much love they had for one another and how much happiness they felt in throughout their wedding weekend. It was intoxicating.”

Nela discovered her love of photography during her childhood in Europe. She was given a camera by her parents at a young age and drew a great sense of her identity through her work behind the lens. “It is deeply meaningful to capture such an important day in the life of a family. Photographing weddings brings me back to my own memories of a time with my family, and our travels where I fell in love with capturing memories and moments”

Nela started shooting in New York City in 2015, after she began her successful career as a commercial, fashion and event photographer in Europe in 2011. The first wedding Nela shot outside of her native Germany was in Barcelona, Spain. “The bride was a model that I had worked with on previous commercial campaigns, and I was so honored when asked to photograph her wedding. The location was so breathtaking that I realized that I would love to explore the world through my lens and capture the joy of people on a bigger scale. I decided that I wanted to take a global perspective to my photography.” Since then, Nela has photographed weddings all around the world. She was recently invited to photograph a wedding in Lake Como, and the experience was magic. “Not only was the location stunning but I loved the energy of the couple and how they embraced their guests and our team. You could sense how much love they had for one another and how much happiness they felt in throughout their wedding weekend. It was intoxicating.”

Her favorite locations to photograph? “Even though I find the scenery and light in southern Europe close to perfection, there is no place like New York City and its energy.”

Nela has a very spontaneous approach to photography. Her eye for proportions, and her desire to capture the perfect image from any perspective, have come together to help her understand how moments when people feel “unwatched” often make for the most unforgettable photographs.

What's your favorite part of being involved in wedding photography?

“What I really love are the truly spontaneous and emotional moments, the moments when people do not realize that they are being photographed. I really enjoy capturing photos of couples that are interacting, and are not focusing on me and the camera. In those moment I am really able to capture truly natural feelings."
