Connecting with the


World through









Hello, I'm Amy Nelson.

I am a freelance photographer located in Aurora, Illinois.  Some of my greatest joys stem from meeting new people & experiencing new things.  I take great pride in capturing the moments of people's lives.  

I specialize in event & portrait photography which has opened many doors and allowed me to meet some very special people.  My hope is to continue to photograph my immediate community while also broadening my reach and traveling a bit more! 

It would be my pleasure to help you capture your visual story whether you are updating your website, promoting an event or celebrating one of life's many milestones.

Noah, Movie Producer

Rink & Ekstasis

Having worked with dozens of photographers in the past, Amy is hands-down one of the best in the business.  Her talent and eye for composition is unmatched.  She is great at posed photos or candid/spontaneous, as I have personally seen/used her work for both in numerous settings.  As a person, she's just as wonderful and a delight to work with.  I always look forward to working with her.  She's great at what she does.

Laura, Muralist

Laura Lynne Art

Amy took professional headshots for my mural business.  She did an excellent job reflecting my artsy side in the shots.  The finished result left me with many beautiful photos for my website and social media pages.  I highly recommend Amy!
