I’m Nicole -an Orange County CA based intimate wedding and elopement photographer. I have a passion for being creative but also just love having the ability to tell other people's stories through photographs. Capturing your story is my goal and at the end of the day I just want you to have photos that you can cherish and remember for the rest of your lives. If you want someone to cry with, laugh with, dance with, and have a damn good time with while also providing an experience you will remember forever well then - I AM YOUR GIRL!
When I’m not taking photos, what the heck am I doing with my life? You can find me spending time with my husband, friends, or family major extravert just love being around my people. I live in Orange County by the beach with my Husband & our dog Beau. Always traveling, spend almost all my free time at the beach, and if I could spend every weekend camping or being outdoors... I would!
My couples are my people. I have spent years documenting so many different couples and have realized that I thrive around couples that know life is meant to be lived in the moment and want their wedding to reflect exactly that feeling. I feel so strongly over the idea that each couple should celebrate in their own way however that may look.
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!
