Best Day Ever!

Nicole was SUCH a pleasure to work with. It was so important to me that we found a photographer who was familiar with our venue, and she went above and beyond the week of our wedding to scope out what areas would photograph best.

The packages she offers are great, and the flexibility to customize based on our budget was awesome too. Having her help with our timeline was an extra that was WELL worth it too! We really love all of the candid photos captured between us and our loved ones, and we are just so thankful to have had Nicole photograph our day.

We adore Nicole and her work!

Nicole photographed our wedding in March 2019 and since then for family pictures. We adore her and her work! She is the perfect balance of being professional and making you feel very comfortable at the same time. Our wedding was one of the happiest days and Nicole was able to capture beautiful moments! We truly can’t recommend her enough!

Professional, high-quality and personable photographer

Nicole was an absolute joy to work with! Professional, compassionate and bubbly in personality, Nicole listened to my wishes and added her own creative touch to the photos. She was very calm and flexible as my husband and I rescheduled our wedding twice due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Nicole captured not only the planned posed photos but also the private candid moments as well, providing high quality and genuine photos that my husband and our families will cherish for a lifetime.
