I'm here to make sure your bow tie is straight; your dress is fluffed just right. I'll help ensure Aunt Tammy isn't wandering off to the bar when she should be nearby for family photos; I'll even help usher people out the door for your private last dance! I've bustled many dresses and have even sewn a quick stitch to repair a wedding dress before. I’m here for anything you need on your day.
Wedding days don’t have to be stressful and overwhelming, they can be fun, sweet and intimate, and I want to show you how. Let’s figure out how we can ditch the stress and start focusing on the love you two share. I cannot wait to capture the excitement, passion and adventure of your new journey together.
I am here to give you outfit guidance, to scout locations, and to answer all the questions you might have. I will do what I can to diminish any stress you may be under and I promise to be your hype girl, going above and beyond to make the most memorable day of your life dreamy! I will deliver you a gallery of images that capture your day as you imagined it; every moment, every detail, just as it was.
I always aim to create a space where everyone feels relaxed, authentic, and completely themselves in front of my camera. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed around me, the most authentic version of themselves comes alive, and that’s always something I strive for in every session.
I love adventure and always want to see as many places as possible, from Bulgaria to Spain, France to Brazil. I love exploring and going on adventures, especially with the couples I work with! Just tell me the place, and I’ll be there!
"I met Nina via zoom, and it felt so comfortable to talk to her, and I loved how she asked me questions about my fiancé and my dreams, etc. It felt like she really cared. Our meetings after that were like getting together with a friend- she was so open and kind and excited and intentional. The day of the wedding, it was like she was one of my friends who was coming to the wedding and just so happened to be taking pictures! She was direct and had a system to the madness but was also flexible and easygoing. When we got the photos back, I was just SO glad we found her and that she chose to share her time and your gifts with us. Photos were something that I decided early on I wanted to prioritize in our budget, and I am so glad we did because now we have her beautiful photos to look at for the rest of our lives! They are so dreamy and magical and soft. It matches the mood and the feel, and the vibe that I experienced on my wedding day. When I look through the photos, it's like I am flipping through photos of a dream."
Nina was kind and professional. She captured my special day in ways I did not even know I wanted. She made sure to capture the moments that I told her were vitally important to me to have as a memory. Nina did whatever it would take to get the perfect shot. My parents commented on how she would be on the floor or standing on a chair to capture those special memories. She was there at the time she requested of her, Nina helped to keep the wedding on schedule and captured moments I did not even know were happening. She made sure to capture the whole day and event, not just the ceremony.
"Wow, I do not know where to start. We asked a lot of Nina. She lives in Oklahoma, and the wedding was in California, so to start, the first ask was if she would be willing to go to SoCal, and she said yes... Then because of the venue, she even helped arrange an assistant to work with her. Nina was all over the place taking pictures. We extended our stay in SoCal, and we loved her so much that we asked that she stay longer with our family. She was excellent at getting those pictures that make memories unbelievable. I could go on but let me just say this - you won't be sorry to offer her the opportunity to help make your memories."
I’m not a huge fan of stiff poses, forced smiles and fake memories, but that’s not to say that I won’t guide you or help you. It’s a common thing for clients to be nervous in front of the camera; heck, I would be too! That’s why I always approach sessions like they are romantic date nights; I want you to focus on each other and have fun together so I can be the third wheel you didn’t even notice was there.
With all the weddings under my belt, I have worked with some incredible vendors and have been to the most gorgeous venues and breathtaking locations. I know the best florists, make-up artists, you name it I probably have knowledge and resources for you. I can help you plan the perfect elopement or intimate wedding that feels completely unique to you.
I approach every couple that gets in touch as a friendship, this way, I can get to know you both on a more intimate level and understand the unique story that is your love so I can capture it in a way that it deserves to be told. I’m not here just to be another vendor; I’ll make a vow to you right now that my whole heart into your wedding.
