About! Photography is my calling and absolute passion. I can truly say there鈥檚 no other career I鈥檇 rather have and I feel like the luckiest girl to be able to document moments that will be viewed from generation to generation, to create ART.

You can expect personable, quality service when hiring CBN. It鈥檚 an honor to be able to provide guidance along the planning process and to be a person to turn to for advice on the big day. I want to be there that day not only as your photographer, but as a friend. I care so much about every couple and do everything with their best interest in mind..

It鈥檚 important to know that I am not a big fan of camera aware photos. You will get your traditional family formals and some looking at the camera smiling shots during portraits, but I favor photos that look more natural. I pose all of the portraits, but I do so in a manner that looks more candid. Aside from the portrait time of the day, everything else is shot with a photojournalist approach. I strive to capture true emotion & personalities which shine through best when you aren鈥檛 paying attention to a camera in the room. My priority is to document the emotion, love, & beauty of the day along with all those little details so that nothing is left to fading memories.

My style is adventurous and romantic. I avoid cheesy and the props/posing that鈥檚 popular on Pinterest.

With Photography, the possibilities are endless. I enthusiastically go into every shoot & look forward to creating something unique. I鈥檓 extremely passionate about my work and I hope that love shines through in your photos!

-Nicole Wagner

Epic Photos!!!!

My wife and I got married in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in July 2022. We planned the wedding 2 months prior and had no idea where to begin, so we joined a Facebook group for Intimate Weddings and Elopements. We asked the group for photographer recommendations. As you would imagine, we received hundreds of suggestions. One that popped out to us as our favorite was Custom by Nicole Photography. We contacted her and she immediately responded and the dates were available. She was extremely responsive and very easy to communicate with. We setup a call and reviewed what we were looking for. She was very accommodating to our needs, as my wife has a lot of health problems, so she asked if Nicole would covid test on the day of the wedding and she had no problem doing so. During the wedding, Nicole was very professional and also personable/easy going. We felt super comfortable with her. She gave us a sneak peak of our wedding photos a few days after the wedding and we were absolutely floored at how amazing they were. We had a vision in mind of what we wanted for our wedding photos and she went above and beyond our expectations. A month later, she gave us the entire portfolio. We were so happy with how they came out. We can't thank her enough for capturing every single moment from our wedding. We would 100000% recommend Nicole as a wedding elopement photographer. She is incredible, not only as a photographer, but as a person. I hope we can hire her again in the future to do some more epic photos.

Simply the best!

Nicole is truly gifted.聽 My fiance and I booked her for our engagement shoot at Minnewaska State Park after stumbling upon her work while searching for a creative photographer with a non-traditional style.聽 Nicole delivered that and so much more.聽 She made us feel very comfortable, helped with posing/ facial expressions, and the shoot flowed effortlessly.聽 Nicole braved a downpour and still managed to get stunning photos of us after the rain had passed.聽 We love every single photo we received and cannot wait to share them with guests on our wedding website and frame our absolute favorites to put on display in our home.聽 Nicole will absolutely be our go to photographer for all future special occasion shoots in the tri-state area.

Beautiful work

Nicole recently shot our wedding adventure photos and they were absolutely amazing. She was clearly very experienced and knew exactly how to pose us so that we'd look natural. Her compositions and editing were top notch. We've had so many people go out of their way to compliment the photos. I'm so thrilled we went with Nicole!

I have worked with Nicole on multiple occasions. She has supplied me with tons of images for my portfolio and her images are my favorite. She is a true talent. I have noticed that every wedding she does is tailored to the couple she is photographing which shows how creative she is. Not only is she talented at taking pictures, but she is a joy to work with too. Friendly, polite, and fun, I would recommend her to every future bride I have.
