in other's words
Nicole was so much fun to work with, she did an amazing job on our engagement session and our wedding.
Nicole took the time to talk with us on the phone, gave tips on outfits for our engagement session, helped plan our wedding day out, and she was so helpful during our engagement session and wedding day.
Nicole wants it to be perfect - and she makes it perfect! :)
She is so fun to work with and everything we wanted for pictures she did more than we expected! By far, the BEST decision we made was having Nicole be a part of our engagement photos and our wedding day.

2018 Destination Engagement
Where do I start! First of all, I am extremely picky and pay attention to details when it comes to photographers. I had been looking on Instagram for a photographer and something wasn't just right about each one- until I stumbled upon Nicole's page. Each picture of hers was stunning, with impeccable quality and emotion. I met up with her for coffee to see if our personalities fit, and I felt like we had been friends for years.
My Fiance and I discussed doing our engagement photos out of our home state of Minnesota and decided to go with her recommendation of San Diego- a perfect choice on her part. She was very transparent with cost, travel, and what she wanted from us (including helping me pick my outfits). This was honestly one of my favorite trips because she made it so memorable and truly was such a fun person to work with.
Nicole was constantly moving us, was very hands-on and very aware of what poses would work for us- it felt so natural. Anyone who can get a man to enjoy taking photos deserves an award!
We got a sneak peak the next morning which was so nice, because anyone who gets photos taken wants to see them immediately, but typically photographers make you wait quite awhile. Then she got our full gallery to us in just a few days!
I have truly never been so happy with the way I looked in a photo. I was definitely worried what my engagement photos would look like, but the second I saw the photos I couldn't stop smiling. I favorited probably half the gallery! I have even had multiple strangers come up to me, asking about Nicole and telling me my photos were the best they had ever seen.
My Fiance and I are so grateful to have found someone who can capture love, happiness and laughter in a still photo. We will have these photos forever, and cannot wait for her to shoot our wedding.
As a former bride to be, my biggest piece of advice is to make the obvious choice with Nicole.
I wanted our day to not only be captured, but I wanted those captured memories to be keepsakes. I wanted to look at each photo years from our special day and be able to recall each happy memory with the vividness that only Nicole’s photos can provide. Nicole has a gift with her craft. She is one of the sweetest and kindest souls you will encounter, not only in your wedding planning, but anywhere. She will not just capture you and your partner, she will capture the intangible essence of what makes you “You.” She will capture your story, your smiles, and your love for one another with ease.
The photos she captured during our engagement and wedding are those that I will cherish forever. She was hands down the best investment we made on our big day. I urge anyone considering working with Nicole to put your trust in her. She will far exceed any of your expectations, and she will make you feel so comfortable and loved in the process. We are so thankful she was there for us on our big day. We are forever grateful that she shared her talents with our family.
Nicole was very easy to shoot with and we were able to have fun with many of the shots.
She made me feel comfortable behind the camera and was able to bring out my personality through the photos.
I had such a great time shooting with her!
I love Nicole!! From the very beginning, she was extremely kind and open to working with me even though I lived 1,000mi away!
Not to mention, she made the whole experience incredible! She made me feel comfortable and confident taking the photos and made the whole day really fun for my mom and I. Her personality is so up-beat and genuine which makes for easy laughter and fun!
My personal experience aside, her photography is ridiculous. I was skeptical about making the canyons look as breathtaking as in other photos I had seen, but she had no problem accomplishing that.
I cannot thank, or vouch for her, enough!! She's amazing.
Nicole was amazing to work with! She made it easy to be comfortable in front of a camera, and we had so much fun laughing and playing while she captured beautiful memories for our family!
