"If we could give Nicole 6 stars we would! She was the absolute best to work with from our early engagement through the wedding. She is professional, on top of every little detail, so extremely talented, and such a joy to be around. She always made us feel so comfortable even in the inevitable hectic wedding day moments. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. From holding our dog during engagement photos when he started misbehaving to helping me clean my wedding dress the day of, we couldn’t have imagined the day without her. Even in the pouring rain, Nicole was such a calming presence and captured the day perfectly."


"I highly recommend hiring Nicole for your wedding!! I found Nicole through a friend and from the moment we had contact and all the way to our wedding, she was such a pleasure to communicate with and have as our photographer! Nicole took our engagement and wedding pictures. She made us so comfortable during the engagement shoot, even when we felt incredibly awkward. Nicole talked us through every step of the way and checked in often, all leading up to the wedding day. We had constant communication with her. Both engagement pictures and wedding pictures, Nicole captured “us”. We were beyond happy with the results and the turn around to get our pictures back was fast! My husband and I could not believe some of the images she captured. Her work is breathtaking. If you are looking for a photographer to capture the real and authentic you, hire Nicole Rae Photography!!"

"Nicole was absolutely incredible to work with, my husband and I cannot get over how awesome she is! Nicole was so patient with us and talked us through every shot. She seriously helped make our whole experience so natural and enjoyable, which in turn made us even more excited for our wedding! We are still in awe of how beautiful the pictures came out. 

Not only is she an extremely talented photographer, but her laid back personalty and professional demeanor made our whole experience so much fun and relaxed. She was also extremely timely with all communication during the planning process, as well as getting our engagement and wedding portfolios to us - you can tell she takes her work seriously and truly values her clients. We hope to be able to book her again in the future "


"I can't say enough great things about Nicole! She has been amazing from our first communication. She's so easy to work with, she's responsive, sweet, friendly, and overall a great person!! Working with her was like hanging out with a great friend. She really captured the essence of "Us" in our Engagement and Wedding photos. Her photography style is just so timeless and natural which is why we went with her. When the big day came, she was on her A game and I really didn't expect anything less. Our candid photos came out amazing - those are the true moments captured in time that are so precious to us. Nicole really just gets it! The outcome was priceless. We LOVE how our photos came out with a touch of her magic. She has true talent and it shows. We are so happy with how all of our photos turned out and you definitely will too!! Thank you so much Nicole!"

"Nicole captured our special day in a way we never could have imagined. She was an absolute pleasure to work with leading up to the big day and even more so the day of the wedding. Always prepared and always smiling, Nicole was everything we could have asked for. The final photos are proof of her amazing style and charm. We will certainly be looking to use Nicole for any future photography!"


"Nicole took engagement photos for us last week and not only was she able to squeeze us in last minute but also got our photos back to us so quickly! She was so much fun and made us feel so comfortable! The weather was extremely windy and she still managed to capture such amazing photos for us. She took some of the classic ones we wanted like ring pictures but also captured the best candids. She has an amazing eye for editing and our images look exactly how we wanted them to. Highly highly recommend her!!"
