Effortless wedding photography for down-to-earth couples



Capturing a day that families want to remember forever is an awesome responsibility.  And one I take it very seriously. My goals, as a wedding photographer, is to tell the story of your wedding. Not the story that’s been told a million times before through stale visual clichés, but a highly personal story that reveals the unique spirit of your day. How it looked. How it sounded. When you laughed. When you danced. And especially those moments when it really hits you—“Wow, I’m married now.”  

So here’s what you can expect when I sign on to shoot your wedding.

Having your photo taken will feel effortless. My clients often comment that I make having your photo taken feel very natural. So they look natural, too. Whether we’re shooting spontaneous, editorial style images or more thoughtful portraiture, the real you is going to shine through. No awkward posing, just real, genuine interaction and connection.

Your photos will have style. I literally grew up in a fashion photography studio—my Dad’s.  It kind of rubs off on you. 

Your photos will have your style.  Through your photos, we'll help you remember your day just the way you experienced it. Along with using our creative and artistic eye, we'll collaborate with you to find out exactly what's most important to you - the little details we know you put so much thought and effort into, the big moments, the small meaningful moments - nothing will be missed.

In the end, it’s your day. I have no agenda other than ensuring your photo experience is one part of a perfect day.  I’ll take my cues from you and make sure you have the time and space to enjoy your own wedding.

I was first drawn to Kristen Nicole’s vibrant, photojournalistic style, use of natural light, and ability to capture authentic candid moments. This husband and wife team made us feel comfortable on our wedding day, and gave just the right amount of direction to keep us from looking lost but never overly posed. . . . We had so much fun on our wedding day, and I think a large contributor of that was knowing we were in good hands with Kristen Nicole: we could focus on enjoying the moment and know that all the laughs, the tears, and the dancing was being captured beautifully to reflect on later. The KN team was on-time, professional, and down-to-earth, and we would absolutely recommend them to anyone for their Big Day!

My husband and I could not have asked for a better fit for a photographer! Kristen is very easy going, professional, prompt to respond to emails, and most importantly has an eye for capturing every detail of the day. From the wedding aesthetic to tender moments between newlyweds she captured everything to tell the story of our personalities and our event.  I would highly recommend working with Kristen and look forward to future events to utilize her services.

Kristen was a joy to work with. She was very responsive to any questions we had and made us feel very comfortable and at ease during our engagement and wedding pictures. Kristen's style is natural, effortless, and simply stunning. It was everything we wanted for our wedding pictures and more. We feel so fortunate to have had the most special moments of our life captured through Kristen's fun, unique, and beautiful photography.
