ABOUT ME

Hi I'm Nicole!

I'm based in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire. I'm a professional photographer with a track record of capturing memorable moments through a lens. 

I absolutely love taking photos of just about anything, wether it be: Weddings, Events, Families, Babies, Pets and more. 

I'm in my element when I'm behind a camera lens. For years I've loved taking photos, and capturing special moments in time, and now I'm so glad I'm turning my passion into a business.

My Backstory

Photography has always been my passion, ever since my Grandma put a LOMO 135 VS in my hands at aged 5. So, you could say a career as a photographer was bred into me. 

As I grew older, my fascination for photography continued more and more. I chose to take GCSE + A Level Photography which led me shooting my first wedding at just aged 16! Following this and various other photographic successes, I chose to refine my style and technique at The University of Cumbria in Carlisle, which gave me the opportunity to showcase my work at Free Range in London. 

 

My newly refined style is now a mixture of Fashion, Portrait and Documentary Photography. This 

is the perfect mix , it allows me to capture a true representation of any events as well as allowing to capture some stunning fine art portraits and allows me to document a lifetime of emotions in one day

Now a freelance photographer, every shoot is an opportunity for me to share my love for life behind the lens, with you

What to Expect

Be it your wedding, work’s social occasion or little one’s birthday, I’ll go above and beyond to ensure that your memories are captured in high definition behind the camera. Sometimes behind in front of the camera can be a little nerve wracking, especially for the little ones! My aim os to always help you, ease you into the shoot and make you feel right at home. I want you to feel relaxed and confident during your shoot, which allows me to capture better pictures. 

 

Prior to a shoot, you'll have chance to talk me through your requirements in the finest of detail and get to know me on a personal level - to many past clients, I'm an old friend. 

 

You needn’t worry about directing me. On location, I scope out each venue prior to a shoot to earmark ideal locations and assess lighting conditions. That way I can be sure to achieve clear and distinctive shots with the best backgrounds and composition. 

 

As well as on location, life in the studio is equally relaxed. After all, when we’re relaxed, we’re more confident, authentic and pull some of the best poses - a sure way to create long-lasting memories that you’ll treasure for years to come.

Am I The Right Photographer For You?

Finding the right photographer for your special occasion can be difficult. There are so many amazing photographers out there, it's so hard to choose! That said, as long as you're sensible, love their work and what they produce you can't really go wrong. 

Hopefully, this section will help you decide if I am the right photographer to be your wedding, event and family photographer.

When booking any of your photographic requirements, I make sure I'm there every step of the way - especially with weddings. With big events and weddings I always offer a consultation visit; this is included within your package. This allows me to get to know you on a personal level a lot more, you get to know me as well. So when the big day happens we both know whats going to happen....

I'm The Right Photographer For You If:

  1. You want relaxed, fun photographs of your friends, family, pets.​

  2. You want your special day / event documented honestly: no staged posing besides your couple and family portraits. 

  3. You want some alone time of just you two on your wedding day, this allows you to enjoy some time by yourselves and allows me to take some amazing fine art portraits. 

  4. You have a CRAZY idea that you want to roll with. This could be absolutely anything (within reason).

  5. You want to enjoy your time and forget I'm there - I'm like a ninja, you will just see me always snapping on the go.

  6. You have a sense of humour. I'm always down for a laugh, especially when it comes to photography  

iIn short, if all of the above sounds like you and you're looking for that photographer to make all your photographic images come to life, then you might have just found the one! 

 

As a professional Yorkshire-based photographer, I've shot countless weddings, events and families across the region and receive a lrarge amount of business through recommendations from my previous clients. 

But don't just take my word for it! See what my clients are saying about me.
