hi, I'm Nicole!

From a young age I always had a camera in hand and absolutely loved taking photographs and documenting anything that caught my eye. Born and raised in Southern California, I love the beach, bright colors, and documenting couples' love stories. Pursuing my passion for photography, I graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography with my BFA. I photographed my first wedding in 2014 and never looked back. From the moment I walked into the bride's getting ready room filled with laughter, I knew this was my career path. I am still in awe that I am able to capture this incredible, joyful, and emotional day for many couples. It is truly a blessing to witness them marry the love of their life. 


I believe in...

1

Joy

Joy is contagious and there is nothing a warm smile or a good belly laugh can't fix. Joy shines through my work and is something I practice and feel every day.

2

Kindness

Being kind to one another is an important yet simple way to live life with ease. Practice compassion and it will cause a ripple effect.

Authenticity

Be true to who you are as a couple. Include unique details in your wedding or session that are special to you. Be your authentic selves.

some things i love

These are a few

My handsome husband, Sheldon. We got married on July 20, 2018 in Santa Monica. He is my biggest supporter and best friend. We met online and spent our first date exploring LA. We ended the night watching the sunset at the Griffith Observatory, and at that point we both new we had found our forever person. Four years later we married, bought an old fixer-upper condo, and made it a home along with our dog, Ella. We absolutely love cooking and hosting our friends and we are always looking for more like minded couples to join our game nights!

of my favorite things

Ella 

Our spirited 3 year old golden retriever! We are obsessed with her and she loves to hike and swim with us.

The Beach

The ocean has always been my happy place and favorite spot to photograph at. Nothing beats a warm summer night spent at the beach. 

Yoga

Hot Yoga is my favorite way to relieve stress. It pushes me mentally and keeps me in shape. I am also a certified teacher!

Traveling

We love exploring and learning about new cultures. Our favorite spot is Italy. What's better than pasta and wine?!

When I am not behind the camera you can find me...

With my husband Sheldon and our pup Ella at the beach. I love the sandy shoreline and exploring our beautiful California coast. In our free time we enjoy wine tasting, taking trips to Paso Robles and cooking and hosting friends at our condo. On the weekdays between photographing couples and families, and editing pictures in my studio, you can find me in a hot yoga class. My second home is my yoga mat, and I am a certified yoga teacher. Yoga allows me to stay active, maintain flexibility, and incorporate balance into my everyday life. It translates to my photography by allowing me to cue you into poses and by encouraging a calm environment on your wedding day.
