I LOVE receiving feedback from couples after their wedding. Hearing how happy they are with my work, their experience with me and my assistants, and knowing that I am now being referred to their engaged friends is the biggest compliment I could ever receive!
Judson + Catherine
“We could not be happier! Nicole was a joy to work with. She was so relaxed and fun that it was truly joyful to have her at our wedding. She was very creative in staging the posed shots.”
Judson and Catherine’s wedding took place at the beautifully rustic Sinking Springs Herb Farm at Historic Bristoll Plantation, Elkton MD. What a hot June wedding it was, but it sure didn’t take anything away from the love there that day! Catherine’s dress was handmade, and the lace details were simply out of this world. Most of our preplanning was via Skype, as Katie was out of the country. The couple had a Quaker ceremony, so witnessing that was amazing in itself, and the handwritten wedding certificate looked like a piece of artwork. After the ceremony we took full advantage of the farm by taking pictures in the cornfield and on a great wooden swing. What a great way to enhance an already beautiful wedding, and what a pleasure to meet and know this wonderful couple!
Chris + Jenn
“Nicole did SUCH an amazing job with capturing our wedding. From the moment my husband and I met with her, we instantly clicked and knew she would be the professional capturing the images from our wedding day. She takes the time to get to know her brides and it’s reflecting in her work. You can pick up the phone to call her with a question or an idea and you feel like you are chatting with a friend vs a vendor for your wedding. We had a 2nd photographer at our wedding who did a lot of the images with the guys and my husband couldn’t say enough great things about her as well. Even our guests were all raving about what a great job Nicole and her team did! I’d recommend Nicole to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! Every time I look over our wedding images I am able to relive the day.”
Jenn and Chris chose to have their wedding and ceremony at The Concordville Inn in Glenn Mills, PA. I loved getting to know these two before the wedding through phone call planning, and their engagement session. Light-hearted and laid back is the best way to describe them prior to the wedding. The day of the wedding, Jenn was so full of happiness and emotions… this girl brought me to tears more then I can remember during any other day! Chris gifted her with a GORGEOUS watch as wedding gift… Jenn cried., I cried. Her father seeing her for the first time… Jenn cried. I cried. First Glance at the park… Jenn (and Chris!) cried… yes, I cried right along with them. It just never gets old! Right after the ceremony we started taking images of their guests at our Open Air Photobooth. At this point I was crying tears of laughter due to the funny poses everyone was coming up with, and having Chris and Jenn jump in right along with their guests!
Angela + Rob
“Nicole did an amazing job with our wedding photos! She sat and got to know us as a couple even before talking about packages/prices. She strived to provide us with the quality and artistry of photographs we wanted in order to “capture” the love and happiness we felt on our wedding day. Everyone who has seen the pictures has complimented them!!!!”
Rob and Angela were married at St. Thomas the Apostle, and the reception was at the DuPont Country Club. Angela was a planner right from the start, which I loved. She sent me ideas of what she was looking for, and also gave me room to artistically recreate them. This allowed her to have special images of her own, and not copies of someone else’s shots. One of my favorite things was watching how kind Rob was to Angela! Rob was so sweet and helpful; always helping Angela with her dress, and carrying her train as we walked from one area to the next during their “Just Married” mini-session. I also really enjoyed the Father/Daughter dance. Angela’s Father was just so upbeat and joyful… it spread to everyone there in the room for sure!
Aurora + Chip
“My husband and I were married in a very small ceremony prior, and one of the main reasons we had a second wedding was for the photography. Since it was “part 2” for our wedding, we were definitely on a budget so I literally gave-up “key items” to have the best photography. From our first call, Nicole was kind, accommodating, and truly professional while maintaining a friendly, easy-to-talk-to demeanor. She never gave me a hard time about being so last minute about everything and always worked around my busy schedule (work, baby, wedding planning). She had a ton of wonderful suggestions and was super receptive to all my pre-wedding lists and changes. She took time to go to my site and take a tour with the planner so she could scope-out all the best photo-ops. She and her assistant were on-time, professionally dressed and behaved, and, most importantly, took gorgeous photos! Nicole was supportive when I was running late for my ceremony, took advantage of “down time” to get in some family portraits, and even showed my mom and sister how to lace-up my dress! I truly feel blessed to have had her as a part of my wedding day. She was so wonderful with us and our son we are already scheduling a family portrait session for this fall! Needless to say, I highly recommend Nicole and NKA studios to anyone looking to capture not just the grip-and-grin shots but the true emotions of their wedding. It’s worth every penny.”
Aurora and Chip chose the Concord Country Club for their outdoor wedding and reception. Aurora was my little free spirit…and no one was moving her until everything was ready. How can you not support that?! We always set out with a timeline for the day, but sometimes there may be a change, and you just have to roll with the changes. Aurora stayed calm as we worked to rearrange her plans to accommodate the changes, and at the end of the day, everything was perfect! She looked stunning, their little boy was just as cute as can be, and seeing Chip’s face when she walked down the aisle was so moving! It was awesome being able to work with their cupcake tower instead of a traditional cake (and eating it too!) What a sweet, sweet family.
Fiona + Christian
“Nicole and her assistant were the perfect assets to our wedding. They took into regard our preference for candid photos and blended into the background; enabling them to capture our guests in a relaxed setting. There were also some moments that we wanted to specifically capture and after discussing them with Nicole, she was able to capture all of them as well! Nicole customized the package and made it affordable for us and also in the format we wanted. She also made suggestions to us to insure that we captured all the “big moments” at our reception prior to the party winding down. Nicole and her assistant also made sure to capture details like the rosettes on my gown and the embroidery on my veil, which when we put our book together were wonderful details to remember! Nicole is truly a talented, imaginative and versatile photographer!!”
Christian and Fiona selected Deerfield Golf Club for their day. These two love birds had the most amazing sense of style! Fiona’s dress was the most detailed and gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen before. And her shoes… ladies, please… to die for! With the golf course available to us, the green backdrop made all of the little details stand out even more. It was so great capturing the way Christian looked at Fiona. He completely adores her, which I am pretty sure you can see in the image above!
Brianna + Rich
“Nicole was amazing-both for our engagement and wedding pictures. She is so sweet and creative. She remembered to take all the pictures I forgot I wanted during the wedding and was super professional. She genuinely cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to ensure your event goes perfectly-and this isn’t limited to photography. In using NKA I didn’t just find a wedding photographer I will be using her again to document my life memories going forward (pregnancies, family portraits, etc). She is also very flexible with customizing packages which I really appreciated. I am already looking forward to my next encounter with NKA studios!”
These two were up for anything when it came to posing during their engagement session, and even on their wedding day! We used an old historic barn in Doylestown for their engagement session. I had them climbing into long grass fields, sitting on wood piles, you name it. They completely rocked it! When a couple is able to just go with a pose and embrace the fun in it, it truly takes the images to another level and leaves them with wonderful memories of the day. Their reception was held at Deerfield Golf Club. That day we were met with just a bit of drizzle, but I was elated to find out that their wedding party was just as full of life as they were. Even with some drizzle, everyone committed to getting the best images they could for the bride and groom. So very glad to have met them all!
Kristen + Connor
“Nicole and her team were just AMAZING!! The first time I called her, she spent awhile going over all of my expectations for my wedding, really trying to get an idea of what was important to me. She was so sweet and it was obvious how passionate she was about photography- She was so attentive to every detail, and every phone call after that we really connected. I felt so confident with having her as my photographer. I remember describing on the phone a few special shots I wanted to do, and she made everything happen! With all the stress and pressure that goes along with being a bride and wedding planning, it was a relief to have found a “vendor” that I could trust from the beginning, who went above and beyond to make sure that she captured all the moments of our special day. My pictures are stunning and everyone compliments me on how nice they turned out! Would highly recommend!”
Kristen and Connor chose The Yellow House in Kennett Square, PA for their uber rustic wedding. All I can say is that Pinterest has nothing on these two! I’m talking sunflowers, hay bales, a wedding under a huge old tree with cows in the background, and cozy blankets for the cool evening. I loved the simplicity of it all, knowing that they kept each other and God in the center of their lives, and feeling deep in my heart that these two are really going to do some amazing things in their lifetime together! I walked away from the day feeling blessed to have been a part of it.
Kate + John
“I knew from my first conversation with Nicole on the phone that she was going to be my photographer! She is so energetic and upbeat; she really shared my excitement in planning my wedding. It was so cold out the day of my engagement photos, but we barely noticed. We laughed and had a great time as Nicole truly showed us her talent and creativity. I fell so in love with every photo that it made me even more excited for my wedding day. The day of your wedding can pass by so fast. It almost feels like you don’t remember all of it. Luckily, I have almost nine hundred amazing reminders!! Nicole and her assistant caught every smile, tear, and touching moment. My bridesmaids and I still talk about how much fun we had taking pictures. We made jokes that will last forever. I will definitely use Nicole in the future. If you are looking for a fun, relaxed, and creative photographer who will capture your day like no one else; Nicole and her staff are perfection!”
After Kate and John made it through a freezing cold eSession, it’s only fair that the wedding day was warm, sunny and gorgeous for them! With 14 friends in their wedding party, there was plenty of joking around, and things said that I still remember to this day when I am shooting at Rivercrest Gold Club. One of my favorite things from their reception was the amount of energy in the room. They both spent the entire night on the dance floor. Everyone was so kind to me, that I felt like family by the time the night ended! I truly didn’t want it to end.
