Nels and Anna are a husband-wife team that have been making incredible photographs for over 10 years. Their clients include National Geographic and The New York Times, and their images have been called 'gorgeous and thoughtful' by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Their shooting style is intimate and creative, allowing them to capture the memories and emotion of your day.

Because they don't want to miss a moment of your celebration, their coverage begins at the rehearsal and continues through the reception. Once you return from your honeymoon, you will be given the password to a private online gallery to share with family and friends.

They are also happy to photograph destination weddings, engagement sessions, bridal portraits, and trash-the-dress sessions. Read less

Nels and Anna Akerlund are simply the BEST wedding photographers, period. They are very professional, they know exactly what they are doing, and they operate flawlessly as a team on your big day. Their photography is fine art quality – I knew I wanted to hire them as soon as I saw their portfolio online, which is rare for me because as an Art Director I am extremely picky. I've seen wedding photographers half as talented charge thousands of dollars more for their services, so I was extremely happy with the value I got with the Akerlunds. They are also the nicest people and so easy to work with – we worked with them on our engagement shoot a year before the wedding and by the time we saw them again they felt like old friends. Bottom line – HIRE them if you can for your wedding (they book up really fast so you will need to contact them at least a year and a half early) – you won't regret it!!!

Nels and Anna helped make our wedding the best day of our lives! They got along great with our wedding party and were able to capture every detail beautifully. They worked with our wedding planner flawlessly. We decided to add more hours so we could have pictures of us getting ready, and Nels and Anna were very flexible. I am glad we chose to get these amazing pictures, and I am even more glad that Nels and Anna were there on our big day!

INCREDIBLE! Where to start... Professionalism and responsiveness... top notch! Anna was so on top of everything from planning, to answering emails, to making sure she had a feel of what we wanted in our photos. Everything moved so smoothly and their work speaks for itself. We love our pictures! And they were available to handle any questions or requests after our wedding even though they are constantly working jobs.

This was our splurge on the wedding as far as budgeting, but they are worth every penny!

Nels and Anna are a great team and have a true passion for their work. You won't regret choosing them for your wedding.

We hired Nels and Anna for our wedding, and we could not have been happier with them! They are incredibly talented photographers who are also very personable and easy-going. We felt so comfortable around them during our meetings and during our big day. I have only gotten a few of the pictures back so far, but what I have seen has been AMAZING. Nels and Anna also are fabulous at communicating by email, which I really appreciate. We will definitely be using their services again, and we highly recommend them to all!

I can't say enough about Nels and Anna. They are fantastic people to work with. We had our engagement and wedding photos taken by them. They make the picture taking easy for people who don't even like it. They take phenomenal pictures! So happy we decided to do first look photos so we had more time to take pictures. I even provided a list of picture ideas I loved and they did a great job fitting them all in. I can't wait to see all the pictures.

We were so excited when we found Nels & Anna! They are amazing photographers that use photoshop to clean not to create...which is exactly what we were looking for. I remember looking at the back of the camera after a couple of shots and was astounded by how perfectly everything was captures.

Finding an amazing photographer was top on our list and I think Nels and Anna went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you for capturing so many beautiful memories for us!

This should be a 10 star rating scale!

There are NO words to describe to you what Anna and Nels mean to us but I'm going to try. I get teary-eyed just thinking about the impact they've had on us over the past two years. Anna and Nels are the most incredible people you'll ever meet and I'm not talking about their talent. Thank you (Nels and Anna) for touching our lives.

Now, lets talk photos. Phenomenal! Priceless! Mind-blowingly Gorgeous! The talent these two possess is like no other. I would in a heart beat book them again for any and every event I have for the rest of my life. This was by far the most fun I'd ever had with photographers. Not only were they fun, impressive, kind, organized and professional, they were apart of the day. And not just because they were there. They were an actual part of our wedding day. They knew their stuff. They knew where to be when. Who to tell to do what. They knew where to go on the property for the best shots. They knew what photo arrangements were going to mean the most to us and they got them. They even took photos we didn't know about that we didn't think of. It's incredibly nice and especially comforting as a bride to know that by having Nels and Anna on our side, you don't have one more thing to worry about. They have it covered.

Now crying, I urge all of you brides out there in the Chicago/Rockford area to do a few minutes of research. Visit their website, google them, do whatever you have to do. But after you're done, call them! Call them right away. This will be the day of your life you want then to capture, I can promise you that!

Thank you again Anna and Nels. We are forever grateful to know you, unbelievably honored to have worked with you, and sincerely touched to call you friends. T/C

I wish I could fully express how wonderful an experience it was to work with Nels and Anna. I found them through a Google search for wedding photographers in our area. Their pictures stood out in comparison to other photographers in our area. I loved how their pictures captured the emotions of the day and looked like works of art. When I met Nels and Anna in person, I knew they were the right people for the job. As our wedding day approached, they were extremely helpful in creating a detailed timeline for the day, helping me pick out places to take pictures after the ceremony, and brainstorming all of the important pictures that my husband and I wanted for our wedding day. They were easy to work with, professional, reliable, and always answered my questions in a timely manner. Above all, they were extremely organized and came with a plan. The pictures we received were beautiful. They were of the same quality and beauty of the wedding pictures posted on their wedding website. We have received many compliments on our pictures. Nels and Anna were one of my favorite wedding vendors to work with. If I could do it all over again, I would hire them again without hesitation.

I absolutely can't imagine not having Nels Akerlund Photography at our wedding! Not only did the dynamic duo work with us to take the most stunning, elegant photos the day of our wedding, but they arrived several days in advance (we got married in the Dominican Republic!) to scope out all the best shots, including the best poses and the availability of the best light! Their level of detail is unmatched and every shot shows it. Karl and I can't thank Nels and Anna enough for all of their great work and for being such a wonderful addition to the wedding party . . . they've helped to make lifelong memories that the entire wedding party is still enjoying one year later and will continue to enjoy in years to come. We will celebrate our 1 year anniversary next weekend, and we're still talking about it as "the time of our lives!"

We loved Nels and Anna from the first meeting. They were very easy and fun to be around which helped us, our families, and our bridal party relax and let their true ridiculous behavior come out which Nels and Anna captured in the greatest way. We receive compliments all of the time on how great our wedding pictures are but also how great Nels and Anna were throughout our entire celebration. The hardest part about working with them is choosing the album...there are too many great pictures to choose from.

We absolutely love our pictures and will cherish them for the rest of our lives. Our biggest problem was choosing which pictures we love the best. We would highly recommend Anna and Nels!! Read less

My wife and I hear nothing but "You have the best wedding pictures ever". I can only agree, the pictures that we received from Nels Akerlund Photography are the most original, funny, unique, pretty, sophisticated, and sexy photos I have seen from a wedding. Nels and Anna were able to take photos of us that people I haven't talked to in years call me to tell me how cool my wedding pictures are. At one point during our "trash the dress" sessions Nels told me "You are gonna need more walls". He was right we had to get a digital frame in order to be able to display all of our favorites. They are fun to work with and will get a smile from any crying ring bearer or screaming flower girl. They are genuinely nice people and very easy to work with. If you want great pictures do not use anyone else! SIX Stars!

Nels and Anna are amazing! I loved all the editorial work they'd done, and our wedding was one of the first they shot. After meeting with them and discussing the unique artistic perspective I was looking for, it was true love! We were on the same page creatively from the outset, and it was a blast to work with them. The photographs they captured that day told such a beautiful (and hilarious and at times quirky!) story, and I feel so blessed to have worked with them. I couldn't be happier, and would recommend their top-notch photojournalistic skills to anyone. You'll fall in love too!

FANTASTIC....if you want a wedding with all the "traditional" photos but then are really hoping for something special, something you can show your kids, your friends, yourselves, that will truly capture you as a couple...use Nels Akerlund Photography.

I can't tell you the number of amazing photos we have and so many are unique - not just the same old wedding pose. They were easy to work with, very professional and the qualify of the product - the best!

HIGH recommendation.
