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. Journaling has been a huge part of my adulthood & I love looking back on them. 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, a mama & a dog-mama. My husband’s name is Nick (yes, we are Nick & Nicole!) 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 have a daughter named Millie, who is our absolute JOY. Motherhood is the biggest gift. Millie & our dog, Pete, keep us on our toes. Life is *good*. :)

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!
