I’m Nicole -an Orange County CA based wedding and elopement photographer OR the best third wheel you’ve ever had. I’m a master at getting you to channel your inner Beyonce along with bringing out that fun and quirky side you feel like only you truly know. Capturing your story is my goal and I use my wild personality to help you let loose and have a freaking blast. So if you want someone to cry with, laugh with, dance with, and have a damn good time with - I AM YOUR GIRL!
When I’m not taking photos, what the heck am I doing with my life? Well, I am usually spending time with my hubby, my friends, and my family. I live in the OC bayy bayy with my Husband & our fur baby Beau. I freaking love to travel, a little too obsessed with shopping, and have an insane collection of hats. Huge hockey fan (GO DUCKS), the beach is my happy place, and if I could spend every weekend camping... I would! My faith is a big part of my life and God has blessed my family and I in so many ways.
My favorite thing about photography is documenting special moments. I love when people truly feel comfortable and start to love being in front of the camera. The expression that people have on their faces after seeing the magic that they created is the best feeling in the world.
I LOVE having fun and laughing (I have the worst cackle & sometimes snort if you are lucky) and want you to experience that with me.. HA! Let’s make the best memories ever together!
From our first session, she simply understood us and our dynamic. We are a pair that don’t typically take pictures well but she made it SO fun and easy going. Every photo captured who we are and our relationship. Come our wedding day, she was extremely professional and easy going. She kept things moving but never caused any stress. She made me feel beautiful in every shot and captured every special moment between my husband and I, as well as our family and friends. No client is just a job to her.
We are so so lucky to have Nikki in our lives! She went above and beyond for our wedding and far exceeded all our expectations! We would hire her again in a heartbeat!
Our wedding photos are seriously unreal... never received so many compliments! I also discovered how important it is to genuinely like your photographer - I mean, you are with them more than anyone else on your wedding day and Nicole’s energy makes you feel excited and puts you at ease. She puts in the time and effort to build a friendship with you leading up to your wedding day which ultimately makes your time in front of the camera enjoyable! Nicole is kind, fun, goofy, and amazingly talented. If you want photos that aren’t like all the others you see on the gram - 100000% recommend.
Nicole truly understands exactly what you want for your special day and makes it a fun process! My husband is not the biggest fan of taking photos and she made it so comfortable we almost forgot she was there because it was that natural of a setting. I was very specific to what I wanted and she captured all of that and more! I’ve never been so happy with a photographer and after this, I can truly consider her a new friend because it was such a great experience!
