hello and I'm so glad you're here
I'm Nicola - I'm a wedding photographer based in Nashville but I travel around the world documenting people and people in love. I'm convinced I have one of the best jobs in the world.
If you've made it to this page, I'm thrilled that you've connected with my work. What draws me to wedding photography? It’s the small and quiet moments that make up the stories you'll pass down in your family for generations. My vision behind photographing weddings is to create documentary images that are deeply artistic, timeless and emotional. Images that you keep in your family for years and years to come - your legacy.
Feel free to click through the slideshow below to get a feel for my packages and pricing guide. The information below explains a lot - and I'm here for any and all questions you might have.
How many images can we expect to get in our online gallery? Typically I deliver 400-600 final, edited images (from an eight hour wedding day) to you in your online gallery, and you can expect to receive those four to six weeks after your wedding date. For a ten hour day or longer you'll be getting 600-800 images in your gallery.
Do you have back-up equipment? Insurance? Yes and yes - I wouldn't leave my house without either!
What are your travel costs if we're not getting married in Nashville? I try to keep travel costs at a bare minimum because it's one of my favorite things to do. Driving - typically I charge $15 per hour of driving + gas costs if your wedding is more than an hour away from Nashville. Flying, let's talk! It really depends on where you're getting married, so shoot me an email and I can send you a quote. I frequently photograph weddings and other work internationally so I can already tell you I'm up for a long flight.
How do we reserve our date with you? A 50% deposit + signed contract books your date with me, and all of this can be done online. Email me when you're ready for both!
more on engagement sessions
More than pretty photos, an engagement session showcases the two of you in your everyday, together. These photos mean the world. Two hours of portraits and adventure together, wherever you want to go. After you book, I have a online stylebook I'll send your way to help you plan accordingly - things like what to expect and what to wear during your engagement session.
If not included in your package already, engagements start at $500 for two hours.
more on elopements
Elopements allow you to do exactly what you want on your wedding day, a perfect fit for a lot of couples who want to opt out of the traditional wedding experience. There's something magical about saying your vows with just an officiant and your absolute closest people - the intimacy and emotion in these moments is so powerful.
I'll fly across the world or meet you in the woods of Tennessee, the Rocky Mountains or a field in the Midwest. Nowhere is too close or too far.
more on second photographers
I get asked often if a second photographer should be added onto the package - and my answer is that it always depends on your type of wedding. I'm more than comfortable being the only photographer, but if you're planning on a large guest list or multiple locations I recommend bringing on another set of eyes.
If not already included in your package, adding a second photographer starts at $400 for 8 hours.
add on rehearsal dinner coverage
Some of the best memories of your wedding weekend happen the night before your wedding at your rehearsal dinner - all of your family and bridal party in one place, with the toasts, the champagne, the food. Whether you want the rehearsal itself covered, or the dinner, or both,we can make this happen.
Rehearsal dinner coverage starts at $500 for two hours as an add-on to your package.
add on bridal portraits
We fit so much into your wedding day that often brides will opt for a bridal session a few weeks before the wedding to focus on just you in your wedding dress and your details. (This can also a perfect time to trial run your hair and make-up!) Bridal portraits are a full hour in your dress, in the woods or at your wedding venue or where ever you want them to be.
Bridal portraits start at $300 as an add-on to your wedding package .
add on extra hours
Add on as many extra hours of photography for your wedding day as you need - typically most of my clients range from 8 to 12 hours for day of wedding coverage. Eight hours will typically span from the getting ready to the first half hour of the dance, and 10-12 hours gives us some room to breathe. In our consultation we can talk through all of this to decide which option is best for you.
Hourly begins at $250/hour and can be added on at any time.
fine art albums starting at $500
Getting your photos off your computer and into your home is an incredible thing. More than a book, these leather fine art albums are pieces of art to showcase in your home. I custom design your wedding album to tell the story of your wedding day in the best way possible.You’ll have the chance to give me input regarding layout and which images to include as I send you two rounds of electronic proofs before sending your final legacy book to print. Full spreads (one photo, two pages) are encouraged here.
Fine art albums start with 10 spreads (20 pages). Additional spreads are priced at $25/spread. Fine art albums are all sized at 10x10 with additional size quotes available upon request. Custom embossing and colors available. View my full album page here for more information.
