Look no further!!!!! If your looking for the ABSOLUTE BEST, this is your girl. From the very moment we met Nichole we knew she was the absolute right choice for us. Starting from even before the wedding she was so thorough with really trying to find out every detail about the us, our interests, and wishes. She knew us before we even met that day. The day if my wedding she was punctual (actually earlier that even I was), she had already scoped out the grounds to see where would make the best shots and back drops. She was SUPER attentive to all my needs while getting ready in the bridal suite. She was going around getting every last detail to allow for the perfect shots. She thought of shots that I couldn’t have even imagined. The attention to detail that she used on every aspect of our wedding/ceremony blew us away. The creative side that she was able to see things I the reason we have the most amazing shots. She was never afraid to speak up or go that extra mile for us to ensure that we we happy and all our needs were met. She brought a second shooter with her for our wedding, he was a pleasure to have as well, he too was extremely accommodating and easy to work with. It is so hard when looking for the right photographer because you think anyone can take pictures, I am here to tell you that IS NOT THE CASE. The way Nichole’s brain works is not like anyone else I have ever known, she sees things in the most simplistic way and is then able to capture a once in a lifetime shot that will have you in complete awe. I told Nichole after seeing (and crying at how beautiful the album came out) that that day may have come and gone, but the memories, because if her amazing capturing skills and keen eye will live on forever. I cherish each and every picture that she took. It is hard to believe after looking at such a huge photo album that there is not a single shot that I did not like. As the time for her to depart approached she came up to say goodbye and was asked to stay a bit longer to capture a few more memories, to which she was extremely accommodating. As I wrote this review I realize that I cannot show you the true value of Nichole and her work through a review but I can say from one bride to another, this women is On FIRE!!! I can GUARANTEE you to be one million percent happy and relieved that all your worries of finding the right photographer will come to an end the second you meet her. We will forever hold these moments that she was able to capture close to our hearts. On behalf of my husband, myself, my entire wedding party, friends and family I can’t shout it loud enough! GIVE THIS GAL A CALL, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!Sent on 10/27/2020

Owner / Photographer
Hey there! My name is Nichole Strain and i am the owner and main photographer here at Photography by Strain. I grew up with a film camera in my hands. Slowly as i grew up, i started using point and shoot cameras (which i still have today) and steadily upgraded my iphone every year to have the best camera.
After 8 long years of working in a miserable and toxic environment, i created my business with the intent of creating a positive work environment for myself and all of my second shooters.
In addition to us as photographers, i go above and beyond for my couples and their needs. You could find me running to the grocery store for an emergency item on my way to your wedding or you could find me holding your dress as we walk down the stairs. I like to go way above expectations to create that perfect relationship.
I'd love to get to know you more as we head over to your wedding day.
