Hello!! I am Nicole of Nicole Hanson Photography.
If you're looking for a photographer who will capture YOU being YOU on your wedding day, you have found her! Your personality is the star in front of my camera. Being photographed shouldn't be uncomfortable and boring. You are encouraged to be relaxed and have fun. Nothing is better than a natural smile, capturing a true belly laugh, or freezing real emotions in a photo that will be yours forever.
I am a mom, a wife, and I am proud to say, I am friends with every-single-one of my wedding couples and photography clients. I have built relationships with them because I truly care for ALL of them! The months before your wedding, I spend time getting to know you. Not only do I want to know how you met your match, how he/she proposed, what you invision your wedding photos to look like... I want YOU to get to know ME so you are comfortable in front of the camera on your special day. When you look back on your photos 50 years from now, you shouldn't see a bunch of forced smiles and awkward poses, you should see REAL moments of your day captured in a way that takes you back to that day and makes you feel the same exact way you did then. Your images are just as important to me as they are to you because you only get this moment once, and I ALWAYS feel honored to be chosen to be a part of one of the most important moments of your life!
I look forward to speaking with you, working with you, and creating images that will last you a lifetime!!

Nicole is AMAZING, she was flexible with the location of our Photos, I couldn't decide until a week or so prior what location I wanted. Pictures came out nothing short of stunning! She has a great eye for capturing the most beautiful photos. Thank you again Nicole for capturing these moments for us!Sent on 10/20/2016

Hands down Nicole was our favorite wedding vendor to work with and she gave us gorgeous pictures. I find myself looking at our pictures all the time because I just can’t believe it’s us. We look like the pictures that come in the frames when you buy them, they’re that good!Sent on 09/02/2013
Nicole was also very flexible. We didn’t have a traditional wedding. We had an intimate Oceanside ceremony at 7:30am on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and our wedding reception two weeks late back home, so our needs didn’t exactly fit a package. Nicole worked with us to meet our budget and coverage.
Nicole is great at capturing moments on film, which help you save your memories from that special day. My only regret is that we couldn’t fly Nicole up to Chicago to be the photographer for our reception as well.
Nicole not only impressed us with her photography skills, but she blew me away with how kind a person she is. My mom is battling lung cancer and wasn’t given a good prognosis when we first found out 9 months ago. When we signed our contract with Nicole we wrote in a cancellation clause in case my mom passed away or was so sick the ceremony needed to be moved, etc. Nicole was the only wedding vendor that agreed to that. She also touched my heart when months later, and still several months before our wedding, she reached out to see how my Mom was doing and to let us know she had been praying for her.
If you’re still looking for your photographer, look no further - Nicole Hanson Photography is the one you want.
Nicole Hanson Photography's reply:You are so sweet! I LOVED being there for your wedding and was touched that you chose ME to capture your memories!! And I would have loved to come to Chicago for your reception if I wasn't already booked. :c( I'm sure you looked just as beautiful that day as you did on your wedding day!! Congrats again to you both!

Nicole is a pleasure to work with. A very professional and courteous photographer - hope to work with her again soon!
I have known Nicole since she started her career as a photographer and it has been my pleasure to watch her grow and evolve from an enthusiastic beginner, into a true seasoned professional. She has developed a style that is all her own with images that are not only stunning, but meaningful. I highly recommend Nicole Hanson Photography for any and all of your portrait needs!
