    Stunning Engagement Photos

    Nicole was an absolute pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her enough. We hired Nicole for our engagement photos this summer. We took our photos on Lake Michigan with the city in the background and they are absolutely stunning.

    My fiance and I are definitely a bit camera shy but Nicole made us feel so comfortable and natural during our shoot. The photos came out so beautiful. Very natural, great lighting and the perfect amount of editing - Nicole definitely knows what she is doing behind the camera. She did such a great job capturing our personalities from loving to fun and goofy to more serious. The range of photos in our gallery was everything we had hoped it would be. We had so many options to choose from, some in color and some in black in white, some posed, some candid and they were all wonderful.

    Leading up to the shoot Nicole was so thorough and organized. She created a shared Pinterest board where we went back and forth on inspiration, outfits and locations. She helped me with last minute outfit ideas and was so supportive and helpful leading up to the shoot answering any and all questions we had.

    Nicole was a joy to work with and you will not regret hiring her for any special event. She will make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and you will receive a beautiful gallery with timeless photos. Thank you again Nicole, we loved working with you!

As a full time wedding and editorial photographer based in both Chicago and Los Angeles, I truly believe I have one of the best jobs on the planet. But before I took this path, I worked at various advertising agencies in Chicago focused on telling brand stories through creative directing and photography. Since focusing on documenting love stories, a few things have not changed when it comes to serving my clients - which I hope will be you! From ensuring you are cared for, creating space for your vision to be heard and collaborating to bring your vision to life - the way you’ve dreamt it!I pride myself on being a strategic creative - but what does that mean? I bring my past life into my current one to give you an agency like experience which includes vision casting, mood board development and timeline creation. It is my goal that before your big day we both can say - yes, this is how I visualize my day!When I am not behind my camera or behind my screen editing, I can be found dreaming up my next editorial shoot, most likely seen with a coffee in-hand or listening to a podcast about minimalism. I am wildly in love with my family, friends and Jesus and am constantly on the hunt for the next great restaurant.
