I'M THE BOSTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THOSE WHO SAY THEY ARE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF A CAMERA
I'm described as a serial fried chicken eater, positivity engager, and lover of bad puns. I speak quickly (so keep up) and am more excited about your wedding cake than you are.
I wan't always a Boston wedding photographer. I studied finance and computer science and started my career as a management consultant.Photography was always in my life and I photographed everything - families, headshots, nightclubs, and was even a staff photographer for Playboy for 8 years. So why weddings, you ask? I believe in the power of commitment, meaningful moments and I really like cake. Yeah I'm really just here for the cake.

Nicole was great!
Nicole photographed my proposal to my fiance. She was great - she was punctual, creative with our photos and helped stay strong and maintain our position in a crowded and sought-after proposal spot! Would recommend her to anyone.Sent on 04/30/2019

Simply the best
Nicole and Karen are honestly heaven sent. We had a great feeling about Nicole after our initial phone call -- we have some stressful parents that we knew could be a handful to deal with on the day of, and Nicole just gave us such a warm, friendly, chill, yet professional feeling over the phone that we knew she would be excellent dealing with both our stress and that of our parents / in-laws. The "forever" session we had with her for engagement photos was great -- she got us comfortable with her, with each other, and said all the right things to get my partner and I interacting more intimately and privately despite being in a very public place.Sent on 11/13/2019
Then, leading up to the wedding, Nicole and Karen both kept us organized, sending us helpful tips (seriously read her wedding planning tips -- it's like a free how-to guide) and reminding us of important deadlines for things even only tangentially to photography. The week of, Nicole dropped us a line to just wish us well and let us know she was ready for our big day. And the day of, the team showed up on time, planned the perfect first look with some epic shots of the Boston skyline, got some awesome candids of us and all our guests, didn't miss a single guest (we sent photos to all our guests afterwards and were able to find at least one shot of everyone), entertained children so they would be looking vaguely in the direction of the camera, navigate parental stress with grace, and even kept mum about a secret dance that one of us had planned for the other until it happened! The list could go on and on, but the professionalism and talent of Nicole Chan Photography and Promessa Studios are both un-paralled; they're able to get the most stunning shots in any type of light and have the patience to sit with you afterwards, reviewing each photo one by one.
We highly recommend Nicole and her team for any sort of event and especially weddings/engagements. We're only sad we don't have the opportunity to work with them anymore!
