Your Wedding Day Only Happens Once...
And wow, it goes by faster than the blink of an eye! I believe wholeheartedly in the beautiful journey of marriage, and I'm honored that you're considering inviting me to play such an intimate role in the start of your lives together. I'm here for you to capture the important parts of the day and all the beautiful details. The small & sweet moments, the laughter shared between friends, the happy tears, your love story, and everything in between.
I believe in the sacredness of your day.
Weddings are precious... You are saying yes to forever with your favorite person in the whole world. As someone married to their best friend, nothing gets me more excited for you than that alone because it's the best! I've been on your side of the planning, so I want to make it the best experience possible for you by giving you all the timeline tips, wedding day tricks, and making the photography part as easy as possible.
Every couple and wedding day is unique! I love capturing genuine emotion and couples who are head over heels for their best friend. I love the fast paced nature of wedding days and the thrill of the brevity of a moment. Weird lighting situations don't scare me, and neither does pushy family members or a grumpy bridal party. I've seen it all and I love the unique twist each wedding day brings.
The day isn't about me. It's about you. I do my best to not draw the attention away from you two on your wedding day while I'm snapping pics of your first kiss or snagging a photo of the groom dancing in the corner with his grandmother. I'm a firm believer in not taking you away from your reception for photos unless we have to, because, well, it's your party and you shouldn't miss a moment of it. At the end of the day, you walk away with a marriage you'll invest in for the rest of your life, your memories, and wedding photos. The most important part is your marriage, so you can bet that I'm gonna do what I can to help you focus on that. As a wedding photographer, I'm just happy to help you where I can.
With me third wheeling one of the best days of your life, photos are the least of your worries. I'll take good care of you - you just have to show up and be in love.
It's about intentionality.
I only take on a limited number of weddings every year because client interaction & experience is such an important part of the equation for me.
I view it as a privilege to be invited into the intimate, emotional, joy-filled and sometimes crazy moments that make up someone’s life - especially their wedding day. I try to approach every interaction with my clients and their guests from that place of respect and reverence. The process leading up to your wedding day with me is very intentional, and I want to get to know the two of you on purpose and showcase that in my work. Your wedding day only happens once, so you deserve the best experience!!
A good photographer understands that you’re not a professional model, you’re surrounded by dozens of people you might not have seen in years, and that you’re about to make the biggest vow of your life. I want you to feel comfortable, relaxed, and able to enjoy your wedding day even amidst your potential anxiety about photos. I want to pour into you and your wedding day, so I limit the number of weddings I take on in order to give my couple my best self! Don't wait to inquire and see if your date is available.
Sweet words from past NSP couples:
Sweet words from past NSP couples:
“Nicole is one of a kind. She goes above and beyond and truly makes you feel special on your big day. She photographed our wedding and everyone has told me how incredible her photos turned out. She makes everyone feel comfortable and seen in front of the camera. She is an awesome resource during the planning process and the ultimate hype-man on the day!”
Memories are fleeting, but wedding photos last forever.

Who is your favorite kind of couple to work with?
My favorite couples are the best friends who fell in love. The couple that cherishes each other, who enjoy being romantic, and who don't mind a little PDA while I'm around. My couples love bright, vibrant images, are joyful and ready to have fun, prioritize their faith, and want to be on the dance floor at their reception.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm a wedding photographer based in Kennesaw, Georgia but I shoot weddings & portraits all over the place! Shooting Catholic weddings is my passion, and there aren't too many Catholic wedding photographers down here in the South, so I'm used to traveling around for weddings. I do limit the number of out of state weddings I take per year! Depending on your location and wedding package, I may charge a traveling fee.
How do travel fees work?
My basic wedding package includes travel within 50 miles roundtrip of Kennesaw (aka driving distance). From there I charge on a per mile basis! I do love to get to see new places though, so I'll travel to places like Augusta GA, Birmingham AL, Greenville SC, Asheville NC, and Knoxville TN. I've even shot a wedding out in Costa Mesa, CA so honestly nowhere is too far.
Do you offer video in your packages?
No I don't - Video is something I rather leave to those who are really good at it! I know some great videographers though, so ask me for recommendations.
Are physical wedding albums available?
Yes of course! There's nothing better than a physical wedding album (besides maybe the actual marrying your best friend part). I design and offer heirloom wedding albums through my favorite print lab.
