Don’t like the idea of a fast-paced wedding day with a jam-packed timeline? Do you want to spend the entire day with your partner instead of spending over half of the day apart? Do you value experience and quality time with those you love?
I understand that going against the grain of tradition can be a little overwhelming. You’re entering the unknown! Which is why I am just as much a guide as I am a photographer. I am here to help you along the entire planning process. From finding your dream location, through getting your vendor team, to obtaining permits and creating gear lists.
I am here to take all the stress off your shoulders so you get to have an epic elopement experience.
I am an elopement photographer and guide based out of Austin but traveling all over Texas to capture some epic stories.
When I am not shooting or editing you’ll find me hiking new trails with my dogs, paddling down a new Texas river or at home planning the next adventure.
I wanted to give couples the option to have an incredible experience and make the most out of their time together. So I combined my passion for adventure with my wedding industry experience to help couples have a wedding day where they could fall in love and get married at the same time.
I value experience and quality time, the way a day feels rather than the way it looks. After working in the wedding industry I noticed that the big traditional weddings had it backwards.
I could create the most beautiful images in the world for you but if you were straight up not having a good time when they were taken they wouldn't matter.
You deserve an unforgettable experience, to feel comfortable and beautiful in your skin, you deserve a photographer who will go above and beyond to make that happen.
Your experience is crafted around YOU, not the copy-paste formula the wedding industry made up. If you're looking for a photographer who isn't invested in your experience, someone who shows up, poses you and leaves. Then I am not the photographer for you.
"Having Nikole as our elopement photographer was the best decision! She literally made everything so easy! We were so scared about the whole process because we’ve never been in Texas before and the first thing we were going to do was elope! Nikole helped us with each and every doubt I had. She always had an answer and so many great ideas for our day that it even made the whole process very exciting!
Our experience on our elopement day was BEYOND THIS WORLD! We enjoyed every minute of it and never had to worry about anything!! Nikole made sure that everything worked out as we wanted. It was the best day and experience of our lives. One of the things I appreciated the most was her thoughtfulness. We had to start hiking before sunrise and she made sure we stayed warm and cozy by bringing hand warmers and extra layers! She made us feel as if we had known her for many years!
Our photos are the most precious memory of the best day of our lives! She was able to capture every meaningful moment and expression of love. "
You are choosing an elopement to give yourselves room to breathe, because the idea of a jam-packed timeline makes your head spin. I get it. Which is why I offer and highly encourage full day elopements. So you get to have the best experience possible without the constraints of that packed timeline. You wouldn't squeeze a traditional wedding into an hour or two, I wont force your elopement into a tiny box either.
"Nikole is an incredible elopement photographer. She helped us pick a location, she arranged a timeline for us, helped pick out the flowers, EVERYTHING. We had a beautiful ceremony and it almost felt effortless. The memories made were priceless. Nikole is that good. She’s fun to work with, always kind, always goes the extra mile. You will cherish the photos she takes for you for the rest of your life."
"Nikole has an unyielding passion to create a genuine experience. There are so many moments that I didn't even realized she captured and she captured them so perfectly. Her devotion is absolutely unmatched. I've had many photographers take our photos, but none of the photos have meant more to me that the one's I've recieved from Nikole. BOOK HER!
