About Nicole—

the one you can find behind the camera
(& petting any puppy that walks by)

Let me introduce myself

Hiii! I’m Nicole. I am genuinely so happy you found me. (virtual hug!) I’m a wedding & lifestyle photog based right outside of Minneapolis, MN, but I’m guessing you picked up on that already. So let me tell you a bit about me as a human. Cause it’s important that you not only connect with my work, but that you connect with me.

So here goes. I am a firm believer in the power of kindness. I feel energized & inspired by being in nature, traveling to places I’ve never been and spending quality time with those I love most. I am a free-spirited gal who has always loved creating. As a kid I would write & illustrate stories any chance I got. And although my spelling has improved (hahah) and the stories have evolved, the storyteller in me has remained. I’ve kept a journal of my life every day for the past 5 years (& counting). I smile a lot and do my best to see the good in everything. I love Jesus & do my best to spread the love & grace He gives us. 

I definitely don’t have it together all of the time or even most of the time (let’s be real- none of us do...), but I am truly excited about the journey that I’m on (and super duper grateful). 

I am also a wife and a dog-mama (& a proud auntie!). My husband’s name is Nick (yes, we are Nick & Nicole- you won’t forget it) and I am more in love with him today than I was on the day we got married. He is a handy-man with a heart of gold, a humble spirit & the best laugh on the planet (for real). We are pretty opposite when it comes to most things, but we like to think of it as balancing each other out. Our dog Gus is 130lbs of pure love & laughter. 

There is so much more I could tell you, but I gotta save some fun facts for when we meet IRL. In the meantime, continue exploring & reach out if you think we’d be a good fit or if you want to learn more.

Let’s be real- some people find weddings & photoshoots to be super stressful. I truly believe they don’t have to be. In fact, they shouldn’t be.

From the minute we met her, it was like spending the afternoon with one of our best friends. Her adventurous soul and easy-going personality made our session SO fun and comfortable!

I truly believe one will never regret investing in getting your life documented. Whether that be for your wedding, your babe's first birthday or just because time is fleeting and you want to preserve this season of life. I promise- it'll be worth it.
