kind words from past NLP Brides

"She is the best decision you could possibly make for your wedding."

I could not be any more thankful for Nichole Lauren! I am blown away by how beautiful her photography is. Her work completely surpassed my expectations and I will treasure the images she captured for the rest of my life. Her sweet spirit brings out the absolute best in everyone, and her photography truly reflects that. My husband and I cannot recommend Nichole Lauren Photography more highly - she is the best decision you could possibly make for your wedding - and we will be calling her for any and all of our future photography needs.

"She Consistently produced the most beautiful pictures with a light and airy feel."

We stumbled upon Nichole by chance at a wedding festival and are all the more grateful for it! She was amazing to work with through engagement pictures, bridal portraits, and our wedding! She gave great direction, was very easy to work with, and consistently produced the most beautiful pictures with a light and airy feel about them. Not to mention, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! I have recommended her to friends and family, and would definitely go to her again in the future for any of my photography needs!

"SHE CONSISTENTLY PRODUCED THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PICTURES WITH A LIGHT AND AIRY FEEL."

"I knew i could trust her, and that freed me to relax and soak everything in."

Heading into wedding planning, I knew that I wanted a photographer who would help me to capture candid moments and genuine emotions. I was blown away by the photos I received from Nichole! I flip back through these precious images daily. Paired with her talent for attaining clean, light, elegant images, Nichole's ability to capture the most genuine and joyful expressions during life's most memorable moments is truly a gift and a blessing. Furthermore, I was so impressed by how calm she made me feel on my wedding day! Her confidence and direction as we moved through the day were so helpful. I knew I could trust her to capture images at the most special moments, and that freed me to relax and soak everything in.

"She is very personable, professional, friendly, and truly cares for her clients."

My husband and I are so happy that we decided to hire Nichole as our wedding photographer for our May 25, 2019 wedding. She is very personable, professional, friendly and truly cares for her clients. From the first day of meeting her, she has been great with communicating, answering my questions, and following through with the timeline. My husband and I were looking for a photographer who would capture our best moments with each other and I believe Nichole did just that. Nichole was also flexible to shoot our rehearsal dinner instead of doing bridal portraits! I'm so excited for our beautiful wedding photos and they turned out so much better than I had expected. Thank you so much, Nichole!!

Nichole was absolutely amazing! Her light and airy photography is what caught our eyes first. Nichole was able to capture every moment from our engagement to our wedding day! She is so easy to plan with, coordinate, and get in contact with. On the day of our wedding, she had everything prepared! We knew exactly what to expect and her timeline she created for the day was perfect! Now 6 months later, we constantly go back and look through our photos to revisit our day! Her work is absolutely stunning and everything we could have ever wanted in our photography!
