Hey! I’m Nicole, a destination elopement photographer living in Newmarket, Ontario! I am an adventurer with a passion for exploring new places with my husky, Keno + fiance, Chris! We recently got engaged on the top of a mountain in beautiful Revelstoke, British Columbia and are now planning our own elopement!

I’ve spent most of my life travelling largely in an RV with my family, and now in our own RV where you will find us exploring through our beautiful province of Ontario and the rest of Canada! When I am not on a road trip, I’m planning the next time we hop on a plane to far away places! I have so many countries on my bucket list including Faroe Islands, Scotland, Ireland, Costa Rica & Norway!

I truly love small weddings and elopements because it allows you to create a day that reflects on your relationship and no one else. I am here to help you with so much of the planning from finding the perfect location that feels like it checks off all the boxes of your vision, help you find vendors that align with both your day and your budget, build out a timeline for your incredible day and so much more. Being more than just your photographer, but also someone to help guide you through the elopement planning process is so important for me. I want to be able to ensure your dreams become reality and you truly have the best day ever. There is no dream or idea too wild, so dream big and lets get planning!

What Makes Me Different?

I fell in love with adventuring and the outdoors long before I fell in love with weddings. I learned to shoot landscapes and nature in all kinds of elements. When I began to photograph weddings I naturally wanted to take couples to the most incredible locations and share my passion for the outdoors with them and be able to document your love story in these incredible spaces.

Using my previous experience as an event coordinator, I’ve had the opportunity to plan intimate and unique experiences for people, and this is something I will do for you. Being a guide for the two of you while planning your elopement as well as on your wedding day is one of the best ways to ensure an authentic and stress-free experience.

I love finding those hard to get to hidden gems, watching the sunset each night and taking you on a customized adventures that fits exactly what you are looking for and encompasses who you are as a couple. I want to help you create an experience far beyond those beautiful photos. The most meaningful photos come when you are having a day filled with experience that is completely tailored to your unique relationship. No matter your race, sexuality or anything else all it matters is your love for each other and that is what I what to document for you!

All of my packages include the following:

  • Personalized questionnaires to help get to know you better + narrow down where and what you would love to do on your wedding day
  • Customized location list that provides with you tons of options based on your vision including places to stay, adventure options and so much more
  • Vendor Recommendations to help find the rest of your vendor team to bring your day to life (ex. officiant, hair, makeup, florist, catering / chef, etc!)
  • Timeline building + assistance so you know what the plan is for the day!
  • Online Gallery filled with beautiful images from your day delivered to you within 8 weeks of your elopement!
  • So much more!

My packages start at $2950+.

I would absolutely love to help you plan and document your incredible elopement.
Can’t wait to chat more 🙂

I want to be able to write enough words to describe how impactful Nicole was on our wedding day. When you're planning an elopement, you might think that a photographer is just another vendor to check off. Think again. This person is solely responsible for bringing your day to life each time you look at your photos. Nicole does this with grace and poise and her talent is out of this world. Not only did Nicole photograph our day, she also troubleshooted, planned, created, and envisioned the entire day. We were along for the beautiful ride. I can say without question, that I am NOT a fan of being photographed. Yet, Nicole's direction, paired with her experience, made photo's seem easy. She got to know us as people not just as subjects. This clearly shows when you look through our album. It tells a story. She organized some of the most amazing vendors, and took on EVERYTHING that a traditional wedding planner would do. We hit a few bumps in the road along the way, but she made mountains seem like speed bumps. I must have said to her time after time over email correspondence "that was a quick reply!" because she never let any question go unanswered. If you're considering Nicole as your elopement or wedding photographer - just know, that she is up for anything. She will hike a mountain for you! I bet she'd even throw on scuba diving gear to "get the shot" if you requested. Nicole - thank you x infinite. xo

If you are looking for any type of photography, definitely hire Nicole!! She is truly the sole person who brought my entire elopement day together. Before reaching out to her, I had no plans, not even a date in mind. And I ended with with best day of my life. She was down for a sunrise hiking elopement which I was super excited to do!! Nicole was amazing throughout my planning process. She was always re-assuring and stayed positive despite my indecisiveness going back and forth on different locations and dates. She created me a custom timeline which really felt it brought my day all together. On the day of, she met me at 4am at the trail head parking lot with a beautiful happy smile! She never once seemed tired or bored during our 10km hike. It felt like I was hiking with an old friend. She helped carry our gear to the top, and even made everyone coffee at the top. For our photos, the majority were natural moments that we didn't even know were happening. When she did "pose" us, we both felt very comfortable considering neither of us have ever had professional photos done. We were laughing and have a wonderful time. Lastly, our photos turned out AMAZING!!! I couldn't ask for a better album to look back on my elopement day. Each detail is perfect and timeless. Nicole continues to feel like an old friend when we talk. If your looking for someone special to capture your day, you found her!! (Plus she makes great videos too!!)

First off, Nicole is the most amazing, down to earth, and talented human ever! Our whole elopement honestly wouldn’t be the same without her! Not only did Nicole photographed our entire elopement, but she also helped us plan the elopement EVERY. SINGLE. STEP. of the way. Before the wedding, we had NO idea what we were doing - trying to plan an elopement to a place we'd never been...alone...were we crazy?! She exchanged email with us several times giving suggestions and recommendations from her own research and experience and helped us planning the details in such a big way. On the wedding day, she did SUCH an amazing job staying calm and supporting the chaos. We didn't have a solid plan for the day (which I honestly think it’s one of the best part about an elopement!!) and she was so flexible and easy to work with. She fitted right in with us and had a huge smile on her face the whole day. unexpected highlight...she sent a starter gallery just hours after the wedding! We were so excited and surprised to have them so quickly and looked through it 800 times that day. Her photos are so stunningly beautiful we could not believe the sneak peeks we received. She gave us memories from Killarney that we could never have gotten from anyone else. Anyone would be lucky to choose Nicole for their wedding! Nicole is unbelievably kind, super fun, and she always makes you feel so comfortable to be around (It’s like we’ve known her our whole life...even though we had just met for the first time in person the day of!). The best part about her is that she is always up for a challenge! She is honestly a beautiful soul both inside and out! We can not recommend Nicole enough!!

It was, without a doubt in our minds, that hiring Nicole was the best decision we made for our October elopement in the mountains: a first-look in Yoho, our ceremony/dinner in Banff, and a day-after adventure session in Kananaskis. If you're open to adventure and want those jaw-dropping photos, look no further. Nicole has a beautiful light and energy she brings with everywhere she goes. Her passion emanates though every step of the planning, every interaction, and every memory captured. She has such an eye for seizing the organic moments - one that only years or experience or raw talent could dream of. She is a true friend, with an amazing heart, and an incredible future ahead of her. Jordan and I are so lucky to have you in our lives, and are so happy to have shared this chapter of our love story with you!

Wow! Where do I even begin?! Nicole emanates a glowing warmth that makes you feel instantly comfortable - as if you've known her your whole life! She made us feel so at ease during our elopement which was a day filled with constant laughter and fun. She was super accommodating and made sure to check in that I was warm and ready for all the locations we had picked out. She scouted Yosemite for 2 days before our elopement and found some beautiful gem locations. The photos turned out absolutely stunning and I get emotional every time I look through our album. I had a vision of printing a giant 6 ft photo for our living room and Nicole made sure she took enough shots that would be perfect for our choosing. The turn-around time for her edits were also so quick without any loss of quality. You can tell she's so passionate about her work and it makes her all the more trustworthy as a great photographer. She kindly checked in with us before posting our photos on social media (of course we said yes!) as the elopement was a very private, personal and special day for us and I just thought that was so sweet of her to do. I can't say enough good things about her. Thank you so much Nicole, from the bottom of our hearts, we absolutely recommend her to all couples!
