We are completely thrilled with our entire experience with Nicole Wasko Photography. From the first time we contacted Nicole, she was extremely warm and responsive. She made a huge effort to really get to know us and learn what aspects of our wedding were most important so that she could document them appropriately. We were very happy to have an engagement session included with our wedding photography, as it gave us a chance to meet Nicole and Scott and get more comfortable in front of the camera. They made the engagement shoot feel very fun and natural – nothing like the awkward experience we were imagining! The engagement photos turned out absolutely gorgeous and felt like an authentic representation of our everyday relationship.Sent on 11/18/2017
On the wedding day, we could not have asked for better photographers to work with. Nicole and Scott did a great job capturing our special moments while keeping us calm and relaxed. They were successful at making two awkward nerds feel comfortable in front of the camera, as well as wrangling our large families for group photographs. They also took some great detail shots of all of the small touches that we spent so long planning (as one does) but that have the potential to go unnoticed or be forgotten, which I really appreciate.
We received our full online gallery of photos within a few weeks of the wedding and were so thrilled with how they turned out! I feel like the essence of the day was perfectly encapsulated. In addition to quickly sending us the full set of photos, Nicole was also great about teasing us with “sneak peaks” which helped build the anticipation!
Overall, we highly recommend Nicole and Scott as wedding photographers. They are super easy to work with, very professional, and extremely talented! Hiring them was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

Nicole was amazing!! First, we were really grateful they encourage couples to have an engagement photo session with them. We were pretty awkward at the beginning of our session, but over the course of the two hours relaxed and learned how to act more naturally in front of cameras. We ended up with beautiful engagement photos and got the awkwardness out of the way for our wedding photos.Sent on 12/18/2016
Nicole had us fill out a long questionnaire before our wedding day that helped us think about what we wanted out of our wedding photos and communicate that so she could capture the moments that were most important to us. We met with her a few days before the wedding to go over the questionnaire and talk through the day of, which really helped put me at ease.
The day of, she and Scott were so good at handling our big wedding party and numerous family members for all the group shots, all while making people feel relaxed (which showed in the photos). For our first look and later, our couple portraits, they struck a great balance between letting us enjoy a few private moments in what was otherwise a whirlwind day and giving us cues for better photos. Additionally, you spend so much time with your photographers on your wedding day and we had a blast with Nicole and Scott--and just as important, we got beautiful photos that perfectly captured our wedding day. Three months later and we still find ourselves talking about how much we love our wedding photos on almost a daily basis.
If we were to do it all over again we would hire Nicole again in a heartbeat and will recommend her to everyone we know who gets married on the West Coast.

Nicole came to Santa Barbara for a wedding & was able to shoot our engagement photos while she was in town. She was great, her work is beautif & we really enjoyed her. She made taking our engagement photos very fun & stress-free. She got our photos to us within a few weeks which was really nice. I can't wait for her to shoot our wedding. I would recommend her to anyone!Sent on 05/20/2015
Nicole and her husband Scott also shot our wedding. They did an amazing job. They were the perfect team to have on our wedding day. They were flexible with our schedule and took absolutely beautiful photos. Nicole even posted a few photos to Instagram and Facebook the night of the wedding. It was so nice for friends and family who couldn't make it to the wedding to see though. Our wedding photos were up on their website less than one week after our wedding! I highly recommend Nicole and Scott for your wedding. You won't regret it :)
Nicole Wasko Photography's reply:Emily! Thank you for the review! I really enjoyed our time together in Santa Barbara getting to know you both and shooting your engagement photos. I'm so glad you are happy with your photos and I cannot wait to photograph your wedding this summer in Oregon!!!
Had a great time shooting video alongside Nicole's photography. Professional, thorough, and easy to work with. Caught her dancing along to the music a few times, too -- fun experience!
