CNP Thanksgiving Special!!


Among the many blessings in my life, this Thanksgiving I am thankful for all of my clients that have made Candace Nelson Photography such a HUGE success!!!  Since beginning my business in September 2009, I have seen such rapid growth that I can hardly keep up!  God has blessed my business and I am extremely thankful as I reflect back!  To show my appreciation to all of my clients that have shared my images with family and friends, for all the referrals that you have given, and for all the compliments on my images, I am offering a “Thankful” special…..50% off Complete Digital Collections for all sessions completed in 2009 through 2012 (excludes all 2013 sessions).  I have lots of memories stored up on my computer and I want you to have them!  At the turn of the new year, I will be cleaning my computer of all sessions that are older than 12 months, but you can secure these memories forever by purchasing the high resolution files from your session(s) done prior to January 1, 2013.  Message me on FB or email me at by Sunday November 30, 2013 and I will get your dvd of images ready for you by Christmas!!!

This will make a great Christmas present!  You will receive a dvd of all high resolution images, edited and ready for printing, as well as the copyright release to the images!  Print them, post them, whatever you want to do with them, but most importantly have these memories secured for a lifetime!  Best of all, it’s 50% off!  Thank you to all who have helped make Candace Nelson Photography the success it is today!!!

Introducing the ALL NEW Candace Nelson Photography!


Hello! I’m Candace. My simple little life consists of four people I love dearly. My husband, David, is my best friend, biggest fan and also my partner in this creative business that I adore. I am truly thankful to have a husband that enjoys photography and is excited every day to be on this journey with me! He has a way of making me realize what I am truly capable of. God has blessed David and I with three amazing children, Drew, Kate and Carter. They fill my heart with so much joy and they make each and every day of my life sweeter! I started my career in the business world, as an accountant, and now, in God’s perfect timing, I am blessed beyond measure to have the calling of being a photographer. I always had the desire to have an artistic profession and I thank God every day for revealing this talent! I have a deep desire to glorify God through every single aspect of my life, and I strive to do that through my profession as a photographer. “When we are glorifying God with the talents and gifts He has given us, we are fulfilling at the highest level our purpose and God’s plan”- Mark Hall.

I am passionate about what I do and I adore weddings! I truly consider marriage to be a wonderful gift from God and I consider it a blessing to be a part of one of the most important days of a couple’s life.

As I share in a couple’s wedding day, my heart is always full and I am reminded, “we love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
