your elopement photographer

Hello friend! My name is Nikole, I am an elopement photographer and guide based out of Austin but traveling all over Texas to help craft and capture some epic adventures. When I am not shooting or editing you’ll find me hiking new trails with my dogs, paddling down a Texas river or 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, have an adventure and get married at the same time.

MORE ABOUT ME

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 most of the traditional weddings had a very "one size fits all" structure to them that didn't represent those values.

your experience matters

I could create the most beautiful images in the world for you but if you weren't 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.

the EXPERIENCE

Reviews

"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. "

BOOK ME

Elopements are more than a photoshoot

They deserve the same care and attention as a traditional wedding

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.

"We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or experience than we had with her,"

"Nikole was amazing! Months of guided planning, calls to keep on same page, and her communication made our travel elopement go so smooth! She even went the extra mile to scout out the areas we planned to take photos a couple days before, ensuring they’d be good choices. Not only did she help plan, she travelled for us, mapped everything out, hiked in the dark of the morning to the heat of midday with us, and captured the most beautiful images! My husband and I never took professional photos before, but Nikole made us comfortable and relaxed with her great personality. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or experience than we had with her."
