Hi, I’m Nicole (she/her) - a Rhode Island-based wedding and portrait photographer. I am enchanted by the varied fabric of our lives. The sacred, the whimsical, the moving, the silly. Depending on the moment, the photos that I create with my clients often reflect these things, but above all, my work is a reflection of human connection and feeling.
Photos of honest, emotional interactions; small details that hold weight and meaning; effortless portraits that capture the feel of the surrounding space.
THE WEDDING PROCESS
I have more than a decade of experience shooting wedding celebrations of all kinds. Today, I work collaboratively with my couples to create a visual story that evokes how their day felt.
Before your day arrives, I get to know you both and learn about what matters to you. I customize a wedding package for each of my couples, and I usually include an engagement session. This session helps build your trust in me and helps me understand you as a couple. Having shot more than 200 weddings over the course of my career, I’ve mastered the ability to create an easy and comfortable experience for those in front of my camera.
When your day comes, by guiding - rather than posing - and acting as an engaged observer, I can capture the energy and feel of the moment - without disrupting it. An empath by nature, I also keep a pulse on what you might need, and I am a source of calm, grounding energy allowing you to be present and experience your day fully.
THE RESULT IS a TIMELESS visual story of enduring human CONNECTIONS, and aN ENCHANTING CHRONICLE of emotional moments that you can rELIVE time and time again.
I offer coverage for larger weddings and smaller, more intimate elopements, and I customize things to meet your vision and plans, so please get in touch if you'd like me to put together a personalized quote for you.

Simply put, photography is and always has been the quickest way for me to get in touch with something bigger than myself.
I never imagined I would be a wedding photographer, but to one degree or another, I have lived and breathed photography as a means of knowing and preserving the human connections in life since I got my first camera.
I grew up in New York City, and when I got to high school, I quickly found my place in the darkroom - developing and printing the photos I took. Regardless of what I was photographing - the streets around me, the lives of my friends and family - the camera allowed me to see and be present in the world, and to communicate in a way that superseded words.
Professionally, I earned a masters in Media Studies from the New School, where I honed my skills in visual storytelling and documentary photography. And I learned lighting and the technical side of things through years of photo assisting for big name portrait and luxury product photographers in NYC.
Today, I have more than a decade of experience shooting weddings and portraits, and my compassion for and curiosity about humans and how they love continues to grow.
I am the mom of two awesome kids, the spouse of a sculptor, a former bike messenger, a coffee addict, a craftster, a small business owner, and many other things. And I have never met a dog that I didn’t like.
It is a privilege to be invited in, to watch and listen, and to create for the people who trust and collaborate with me.
