hello and I'm so glad you're here

nashville-wedding-photographer

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. 

 



 

FAQs

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.

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.

“Nicola, we are so grateful to have met you and been a part of your artistry. Thank you, once more, for capturing not only the best of the best and the most beautiful of all the beauty in our wedding, but also the little imperfections that constitute the real core of any day. Because marriage is more than one glorious day of celebration, but also a lifetime journey of ups and downs, we feel like your approach to documenting the eddies and currents of emotion, fortuitous wrinkles, gorgeous and fortuitous snags are emblematic of what we have to look forward for years to come: moments of graceful imperfection that are all the more beautiful, because falling short is human, and something we have promised to embark upon together, through thick or thin. Stephen and I feel that embracing this process together is what is important in marriage - and we feel your work in documenting our wedding day has truly captured this.”
— Emma and Stephen, June 2016
Brooke and I were looking through our wedding photos last night on our one year anniversary. I can’t even believe how good they look. Like, I look and them and I’m almost in disbelief that those are pictures of us. They are perfect and you captured the day so well. Looking through them was like reliving the day all over again. I speak for Brooke when I say, we are forever thankful for what you did for us one year ago. We love you and Christian and I will be referring people to you until one of us dies.
— Chris and Brooke, May 2015
Nicola, I really think that having you as our photographer was the highlight of our wedding!! Losing our other photographer so shortly before our wedding was scary but turned out to be the biggest blessing! You were the easiest to work with of EVERYONE! You were so timely in getting back to us and our Skype meeting was so great! It was so nice to work with a laid back, adventurous person that was so much like the two of us. I love that you were with us flexing through the day as things progressed! The preview photos we have gotten to see already are STUNNING! We can’t even believe it is us! You are truly SO gifted at what you do and we love that you are the one we chose to give us our forever keepsakes of our wedding day! Thanks for being AMAZING and helping us keep the memory of the best day of our lives!

..Madilyn forwarded the photos to us, and we honestly are at a loss for words. You captured every emotion. You also captured the beauty of our surroundings and landscape! When we looked at the pictures we felt like we were reliving the day. My husband and I were overcome with emotion all over again!! Our whole family can say that was truly one of the best days of all of our lives. Nicola, YOU CAPTURED IT...EVERY SINGLE MOMENT! The images will forever remind us of the love and joy we experienced. Thank you for what you do and for being such a pleasure to be around.
