Your story is just as much dancing your face off at your reception as it is wearing your great-great-grandmother’s earrings down the aisle. I’m here to capture it all.
I’m currently based in Chicago, but I’m always up for exploring new places! Photography has taken me as close as Wisconsin and Michigan and as far away as New Orleans, California and Mexico.
PS. my passport is up to date!
A modern approach to tradition. I was drawn to photography because I love capturing moments so I like do step back and let the day unfold in front of my camera. I will step in occasionally to guide you into the good light, but everything else is as its happening. I only direct wedding party portraits and family photos (because we all forgot what to do with our hands when we get in front of a camera). Other than that, I’m capturing your day as it’s happening!
A wedding is a wedding no matter how big or small. I’ve captured intimate ceremonies under 20 people and large ballroom weddings with 400+ guests! Please inquire and so we can discuss the coverage that makes sense for you and your wedding day.
Unless it’s a small wedding/elopement, I always bring a second photographer with me. So many reasons for this, but mostly so I can be in two places at once! This always helps especially in the beginning of the day when I literally need to be in two places at once for prep. My second photographers are all photographers that have their own businesses and I was just lucky enough to get them on a day they weren’t booked. My second photographer can also step in as lead should something life-threatening happen to me on your wedding day (don’t worry, I’ve never missed a wedding day, but I like to be prepared for everything!)
Yes and no. Before the wedding, we’ll discuss all the things that are important so I’m ready and aware. We will then let the day unfold. When it comes time for family photos, yes 100% we will list out all combinations so no one gets missed.
Final gallery totals always depend on the wedding day and the amount of time we’re there. It’s usually somewhere around 75 photos per hour, but it usually ends up being more (especially if you’re dance floor is extra, extra fun). It take anywhere. All high-resolution digital images will be uploaded into an online gallery. You are able to download your photos as soon as I send the gallery to you. Gallery can also be shared with family and friends !

Every wedding celebration is different and that's why you won't find packages here. I keep things simple by offering what you need, then giving you the option to add on what you want. Please inquire for additional information, a la carte menu and elopement options.
Nicole was SO wonderful to work with for our wedding. She came and photographed both our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Nicole was professional, organized and easy going. During the entire wedding day she got all of our shots and then some and helped handle our big families and big wedding party with ease. The photos turned out beautiful and I am so thankful we were able to work with Nicole! Highly recommend her and her team!
We absolutely LOVED working with Nicole!! She is super personable while also being professional. Your photographer is with you all day and you want them to be fun and have good energy and that is Nicole!! She photographed both our engagement pictures and wedding and we couldn’t have had a better experience. She is able to capture the best moments and listens to what you want captured. I absolutely love her work and hope to work with her again in the future!
We used Nicole for our wedding and just to start, I believe Nicole should do everyone's wedding photos in Chicago. She's absolutely AMAZING! Her vision is absolutely amazing and one of a kind. Photographers are one of the most important vendors for your wedding and your images will last a lifetime. With that said, if you're looking for a fantastic photographer for your big day, look no further! Trust me, you won't be disappointed if you choose Nicole!
Nicole was absolutely outstanding! Even my camera-shy now-husband loved being in pictures with her directing. During our ceremony and reception, she was very discreet; we didn't even know she and her team were there, and they were never in anyone's way. She was extremely flexible in working with special requests and things that were important to us. The photos were excellent and captured the joy of our event -- we are still have a hard time whittling them down because they're all so good! Best of all, she was a pleasant person who was very responsive and who went out of her way to make things convenient for us and to understand our vision for the day. Many photographers tried to oversell themselves to us, but Nicole's photography and friendly nature sold itself.
