I love the wedding industry wholeheartedly and pour everything I have into every session. I adore helping couples feel like they are being seen when in front of the camera. To me, it’s more than photography; it’s authentic storytelling. I aim to capture the raw connection between two lovers in the most authentic way I know how. Photography is a superpower--freezing memories in time, and I am so honored people trust me to capture those memories for them.
Saying yes is the most exciting moment of your life, and I know you’re dying to document this season. But sometimes, an engagement season can be an extra cost, which causes extra stress. This is why I like to include an engagement season in every single one of my packages.
An engagement session is great for two reasons:
1) We get to know each other a little better, and I can help you feel comfortable in front of the camera in a low-stress situation.
2} More photos!! I can't complain about that.
3} An engagement session is a great way to spend time together amongst the hustle and bustle of wedding planning and capture some great memories.
I understand wedding planning can cause decision fatigue. There’s so much information and so much to process that it can be daunting. I want to help ease that burden a little bit and help make your day go as smoothly as possible. I love meeting up about a month from the big day to clarify details. We can meet for coffee and chat through all the details---shot list, family photo list, timeline, etc. After this meeting, you will have a clear idea of how the wedding day will play out and a clear vision of what to expect from me, leaving you with peace of mind that your wedding day is taken care of.
Your wedding day was a dream come true, and you now get to spend every day of forever with the love of your life, congratulations! But the fun doesn’t end there; I know how excited you are to share the moments with loved ones, so you’ll get sneak peeks the day after your wedding.
You’ve been living in married bliss for a month now, and you’re still on that wedding high. It’s your one-month wedding anniversary, and your full gallery hits your inbox! Every photo from the wedding will be waiting for you in a high-resolution gallery, ready to be printed or shared with the world!
You two will forever hold a special place in my heart, and it truly means the world to me that you chose me to document the most magical day of your life with your ride-and-die. As a token of my appreciation of just how much that means to me, I love to gift my clients ten 5x7 prints delivered in a special way. Even after our time together is over, I’ll still consider you a friend.
"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."
There’s nothing worse than hiring a stranger who shows up at your wedding with a big ol’ camera in hand and then says, " See ya”. I want to be someone you can pick up the phone and chat with and turn to if you have questions or concerns. When you book me, you get a wedding guide and welcome gift that is personalized to you, and that’s just the beginning.
