wedding & Elopement photography

California | Pacific Northwest
Arizona | Colorado 

& Destination Worldwide



I'm just a simple girl that lives on the border of Ventura and Los Angeles County in California. I am a huge sucker for anything Lord of the Rings and Star Wars (nerds unite!). I absolutely love the outdoors and sunset lighting makes me weak in the knees. If you want to hike for that engagement session or want to elope in a redwood forest, I’m there. I spend way too much time on detail. Call me a perfectionist if ya want to, but I am all about quality over quantity. Traveling has been a big part of my life and the only two states I have not visited are Hawaii and Alaska...destination weddings, I'm looking at you! 

I am passionate about what I do. My goal as a photographer is to not only authentically capture your story in a natural way but to also create fine art; that you will cherish and treasure for years to come.

"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still"

-Dorothea Lange




 All day coverage.I like to keep things simple. I will be there from sun up till sun down if you wish, capturing your day from start to finish.
I also offer hourly coverage separately for elopements and intimate weddings. I absolutely love to travel and go to destination weddings, please ask me for a custom travel price. 

In order to reserve your date, a $1000 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking.


Portraits start at 1 hour and include family, senior, maternity, or lifestyle sessions. Your images are captured in a RAW color format. After our shoot, I handpick the final images from the session and work with each selection individually to bring it to its absolute full potential. I focus more on quality versus quantity. Please contact me for detailed pricing & collections.

In order to reserve your date, a 25% non-refundable retainer is due upon booking a session.

"The photographs turned out beautifully. 
It's clear that she didn't just look attentive 
during our meetings, but that she 
was taking everything we said about what we 
wanted from our wedding photographs 
very much to heart. They turned out perfectly!
Just what I had imagined."

-Jessica & Ian

"I could not be happier with Nicole and her photos!! She has such a wonderful, calming nature. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera, something neither of us are used to. The moments that she captured are the moments that I will always remember. Her photos far exceeded any of our expectations."

"Nicole is amazing. She is prompt, professional,
and very flexible with your needs.
She stayed all night capturing my wedding and my family loved her! I wish I lived in CA so I can use her all the time for events and milestones. She's hands down the best vendor I had at my wedding."

"Her creative vision was well beyond anything that I could have imagined on my own, and she captured every moment perfectly. She did an incredible job of really putting how our wedding felt into pictures, and that is amazing. We are so happy we hired her, and I can't wait to have her photograph all of the next important life events."

-Ashley & Matt

I am currently based in Southern California, but travel frequently to Colorado, Arizona, & the Pacific Northwest including Washington. I will capture your wedding or elopement wherever your heart desires. Be it in a redwood forest, up on the mountaintops of the Rockies, by a waterfall in Iceland, or on the beach with your closest friends and family. This is one of the most important days of your life, let's make it an adventure.

Most of my collections include me being there as long as you need me with no time restrictions. I typically will arrive as the bride is finishing her hair and makeup is starting. However, the beautiful thing about weddings is that they are all unique. I do make the exception to those who are having elopements and small intimate ceremonies. Please email me for more info if interested in hourly coverage: 

Absolutely. I am based out of Southern California but travel frequently throughout the year to the Pacific Northwest, Arizona, & Colorado and do offer travel discounts for those areas. If your wedding is within driving distance, the first 100 miles is included. After, $1.00 per mile will be charged. Destination weddings will be priced appropriately for accommodations, airfare, rental car, etc.

Most people really don’t understand this question. Think of RAW files as the uncooked steak of your dinner. A RAW file is not an image and you would be unable to view it without the correct program. When you chose me as a photographer, you are also selecting my artistic vision. I edit the RAW file into an image & intend each image to be a piece of art.

If I am still available for your new date, then of course. However, if you booked with last year’s prices then the current year price will apply to the total.

Not to worry! We can chat on the phone or email about your wedding details. I also can accept the retainer via paypal and can send the contract by email.

You betcha! If your venue requires a certificate of insurance, just say the word!

Your images will be posted within one month of your session. For weddings, please allow 6 - 8 weeks. I also provide a sneak peek within 48 hours of the session. If the session is out of state or more than three hours away, then your sneak peek will be posted within 3 days.

My focus will always be about capturing moments, instead of things. It's important that you want the same. Sure, I'll help pose you guys but I promise in two seconds you'll forget you were even in a pose to begin with. I want to capture the way he makes you laugh so hard that donkey noises come out (you know what I'm talking about!). The exact moment your father realizes his little daughter is not so little anymore. When he sees you for the first time in your dress and his breath catches in his throat. Authentic feelings, raw emotion, real moments, this is what weddings are truly all about.
