Nicole

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.

Weddings

 All day coverage. No time restrictions. 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 $500 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking.

Portraits

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

"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."

-Bryttany & Michael

"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."

faq


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 Arizona and Colorado and do offer travel discounts for those areas. If your wedding is within driving distance, the first 100 miles roundtrip 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. I also provide a sneak peek within 24 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. For weddings, please allow 6 - 8 weeks.
