More than your average wedding photography. It’s your Connections, Expressions, Emotions and all the things that make you, you!

Camera , Shy?

Creating natural wedding photos is all about helping you relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera. I want you to be yourselves and have fun together. I don’t want to pose you or ask you to stare into my lens, ideally I want you to forget that I am even there.

You are marrying your best friend, your partner in crime, the person who brings out the best in you. I will simply get you walking, talking, playing little games together. Your connection and interaction will do the rest and I will capture all the in between moments.

CAPTURING weddings since 2014

Hi, I’m Nicola


My love of people and travel has naturally led me to a career as wedding photographer. Witnessing human interactions, love and kindness is a wholesome experience. Being able to capture each love story with my camera is a privilege.

I document and tell people’s wedding stories all over the world. I have visited many beautiful locations and met so many wonderful people. No wedding is too big, too small.

Reasons to hire a relaxed wedding photographer

  • Your wedding is all about having fun together and celebrating with all your favourite people.
  • You want to spend as much time as possible hanging out with your guests.
  • You think real moments are more precious than posed.
  • You want relaxed, less formal style photos.
  • You want all the funny, emotional and little moments captured.
  • You want someone who will blend in and not take over your wedding day.

Your wedding Your way!

Whether you are keeping things fairly low key or going all out and pushing the boundaries on norm. Your wedding day is all about the two of you, celebrating the power couple you are. I encourage you to embrace your personalities and be your absolute true selves. Hire me as your Bristol wedding photographer that will 100% get you and capture you exactly as you are.
