I also believe that we are called to do big things and that God has a great plan for each and every one of us. For example, here's the story of how I met my husband. When we first met almost 16 years ago, he was a friend of a friend who hung out with the same people, went to the same emo and punk rock shows as me, and even attended the same church. But, he NEVER ONCE spoke to me, I wasn't sure if he was shy or just didn't like me.
Now, fast forward about two years and I was duped, yes full on tricked into hanging out with this guy that (I thought) couldn't stand me. A mutual friend invited me to hang out at his house and a little voice told me to go. Not even half an hour into being there this mutual friend of ours just makes some excuse and leaves. JUST LEAVES! But don’t you know it, the "guy that didn't like me" and I ended up talking and getting to know each other and next thing we knew, it was 5:00 in the morning! We’ve been together ever since!
I am so glad I listened to that small voice back then! 14 years together, 10 years of marriage, 2 beautiful girls later and we have learned that while marriage is not easy, it is SO worth it! We are best friends, soulmates, and all that other mushy stuff, but also truly partners in life together. We have grown together in our faith, our marriage, and every other way you can imagine and it is just the most beautiful thing!
Now that you’ve heard our story, let’s talk about yours!
am an award winning wedding, family, and newborn photographer based in Akron, Ohio and also serving Cleveland, Canton, and beyond. If we get the opportunity to work together.
you'll find that I am a bubbly, silver linings kind of woman who is easy going, but will also kick a$$ and take names if needed. I love fiercely and thoroughly enjoy being a helper (enneagram type 2 here)!
A snapshot into my life
1 / 3
I already told you all the mushy, gooey love story details above, so I'll just say this. My husband is truly my best friend. When something great happens, he is the first person I want to talk to about it. When I watch a funny TikTok, I forward it to him immediately. And when I have a bad day, he is the only person I want to give me a hug and make me feel like all will be ok.

I always wanted to be a mom, but I never realized how much it changes you. Though life looks a lot different than it did before our girls arrived, we are truly blessed. They bring so much joy, laughter, and brutal honesty to our lives.
Seriously, don't ever ask a 4 year old how you look unless you really want blunt, honest truth! For many, many (too freaking many) months after I had my second daughter, our oldest continued to ask when the next baby was coming because "your belly is big mom so that means there's a baby in it right?"
She's lucky she's cute ;)

We love traveling! Whether it's a week or two at the beach, a snowboarding trip, a long weekend in Niagara Falls, or visiting friends around the country, we always enjoy time exploring (and eating) in new places!
Nichole is amazing to work with! She has a natural ability to make a person feel comfortable in front of a camera. She also has a genuine passion for catching intimate moments. Her pictures manage to capture incredible light. We could not ask for a better photography experience!

Nichole is amazing and (we) were lucky enough to have her shoot our wedding. She was so flexible, clear with communication, and quick to respond to anything we needed. I love the way she captured our personalities and love for each other so naturally. She also wasn’t afraid to get down and dirty with us in the meadow behind our venue for the very best shots. Love our photos and our overall experience with her!

You Deserve the best
You have spent so much time dreaming of this day and you deserve a photographer who can capture the perfect day that you have envisioned. If you're getting married in Cleveland, Akron, Canton, or really anywhere (yes, I'll travel!) I cannot wait to create something beautiful with you!
