She’s so quick to zero in on what your day means to you as a couple and has this insane ability to bring that experience to fruition in such a meaningful way. She’s incredibly chill, honest, and has a great sense of humor. She really knows her craft, is super communicative, and most importantly, is a meticulous planner that bodes well for both Type A personalities (like me) and those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of planning.

Nicole

Gosh. I don’t know if I can even put into words how thankful we are that Nicole was our wedding photographer and how talented she is! My husband and I were sold the moment we read her heart behind photography. She is a total moments girl. Nicole understands and values the beauty of moments and is passionate about authentically capturing them. Her presence brought so much peace when things felt crazy. She advocated for us and guided us through the wedding planning process so seamlessly and went beyond her role as just our wedding photographer. My husband and I were nervous about what it would be like to be photographed and feel not ourselves, but she made us feel comfortable and free to be who we were. Nicole is a fast friend and genuinely cares about her clients. We absolutely loved her and we loved the moments that she captured for us during our engagement session and our wedding day. We felt so represented and valued!

Nicole was the first vendor I hired because once I saw her work I knew she was the one I *had* to work with. I’m so glad I did because she made every part of planning and the actual day of so much more relaxed and fun than I could have imagined. My husband and I were nervous to do our engagement shoot as we aren’t “picture-taking people,” but Nicole immediately made us feel at ease and genuinely had us laughing and smiling the whole time, which resulted in so many authentic and beautiful shots. She balances providing expertise and insight to guide you while also listening to what you want in every aspect very well. She also goes completely above and beyond what one would expect or ask of a wedding photographer, everything from sharing detailed guides she’s created to help you plan the wedding to working one-on-one with you to make sure your timeline is doable and includes everything you want out of the day. I was so grateful to have her around day of, and found shooting portraits at sunset with her and my husband to be the most peaceful and relaxing moment I got to have that day. She puts you at ease, but beyond that, her photos are truly a work of art I know I will treasure for the rest of my life. I’d hire her 1000x over. Thank you for everything Nicole!

With a non-traditional love story, my husband Dan and I knew we wanted to do something different for our wedding. We saw photos of adventure elopements online and never in our wildest dreams did we think we could be that picturesque couple amidst mountaintops, cliffs, and valleys - but Nicole made that vision a reality with an adventure of a lifetime that we will truly never forget. From the moment we first connected with Nicole, she made us feel so at ease and made the process so easy by guiding us every step of the way. We communicated regularly where she got to know us and helped us craft a timeline of events for the day-of that would tell our story, that would represent us. She guided us through decisions, provided thoughtful input - and made sure that the day-of was all about us and celebrating this big milestone in our relationship. Her ability to pinpoint breathtaking locations that portrayed exactly what I envisioned, and the way she allowed us to have fun and laugh throughout the shoot - resulted in photos that showcase us exactly the way we want to remember for years to come. Nicole became more than a photographer, but a friend and confidant - and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to work with her!
