I've drawn this for Teitho beginnings challenge. This is the first meeting of Feanor and Nerdanel in the hills of Aman.

"While still in his early youth Fëanor wedded Nerdanel, a maiden of the Noldor; at which many wondered for she was not among the fairest of her people. But she was strong, and free of mind, and filled with the desire of knowledge. In her youth she loved to wander far from the dwellings of the Noldor, either beside the long shores of the Sea or in the hills; and thus she and Fëanor had met and were companions in many journeys."
(J. R. R. Tolkien: The Later Quenta Silmarillion (II) §46c, Of Fëanor and the Unchaining of Melkor, HoME 10: Morgoth's Ring)

I imagine their meeting happened sometime close to the marriage of Finwe to Indis when Feanor was miserable and just wondered aimlessly because he didn't want to be anywhere close to home; probably went to Lorien a few times hoping to convince his mom to come back to life again but that just made him more desolate. One day Nerdanel came across him and thus began their wonderful relationship.
