I'm Nicola, a photographer based in Auckland, but i love to travel! I have documented weddings New Zealand wide, including the Bay of Islands, Coromandel, Hawkes Bay and the Bay of Plenty.
I have a relaxed approach to photography and love to capture those raw, authentic moments and emotions, my style is more documentary, with gentle guidance where necessary, less posed, but capturing those natural moments as they unfold.
I'm here to tell your story through candid, relaxed, and timeless photographs. Whether it's one of the most important days of your life or just hanging out in your backyard! I'll be there to make your kids laugh, to adjust your veil, and to capture those in-between moments that may have gone unnoticed.
For more of an idea of my style, check out my latest work here, or find me on instagram and facebook.
Coming together with you, to capture your story as it unfolds.
The photos show everything and more. I cannot express enough how happy we are with our photos! The communication and assistance Nicola provided us right up to our wedding day was faultless! On the day, Nicola was so calm and would just help us get a feel for what to do. We are not people that like/or get photographed often so it definitely outside our comfort zone but she made us feel extremely comfortable and none of the photos felt forced. We have had hundreds of comments on how perfect our photos are, I couldn't agree more (slightly obsessed with them all!!!) I cannot stop looking at them.

“Nicola over delivered! We were absolutely flawed by the amount of lovely candid moments that she captured. Moments not just of us and our wedding party but also of our guests. Looking through Nicolas album of images from our day, felt like we’re right back there, reliving it! As well as producing wonderful work, Nicola was a great communicator and an absolute joy to work with. We would recommend Nicola to anyone!"

I cannot recommend Nicola enough, she is AMAZING! We were so happy with our wedding photos, she captured our day just beautifully. She made our day so special and we can't thank her enough for this.

Nicola was our wedding photographer in January 2022. She shot our day extremely well and listened to all of our requests. We had received a large selection of preview images within 24 hours and they were all outstanding. We can't wait to see more! Highly recommend.

Nicola was our wedding photographer, February 2022 she came from Auckland to Hawkes bay to capture one of the most important days of our lives and we are so so grateful. The photos she has shared so far are absolutely stunning! She made it so comfortable when taking the photos, really natural and not forced to posed, she was open to our ideas for photos and captured ones that we did not think of getting! I would 10000% recommend Nicola for any photo shoot, we had an engagement one with Nicola first and that made us all comfortable so we knew Nicola before our wedding, she is so lovely we are very thankful.

We had some amazing photos done by Nicola. She really listened to what we were after and we are beyond happy with them. Now the hard part is deciding which ones to frame for the wall! Thanks again Nicola!
