ABOUT:

Hi! My name is Nicole and I am a destination-wedding, lifestyle and commercial photographer based in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, serving all three Virgin Islands and available for travel worldwide. I specialize in fine art weddings, engagement sessions and family portraits, with over eight years of photography experience.

My photography style encompasses a fine art editorial, contemporary and photo-journalistic approach. I strive to produce imagery that my clients will cherish for all time; capturing the emotional connection, beauty, romance and wonderful details experienced on their special day. I love utilizing as much natural light as possible during my photo sessions, creating a soft, ethereal and fresh look to my work. 

After completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA, I had the amazing opportunity to intern for and be published in Santa Barbara Magazine. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and was recently awarded the Wedding Wire 2016 "Couple's Choice Award."

A traveler at heart, I have visited 6 continents, 49 countries, and 186 cities across the globe. I am an avid reader, and when not working on photography / art projects, I find peace and tranquility on my yoga mat, or in nature, especially at the beach. 

For more information regarding my wedding photography packages and portrait sessions, please be in touch via my contact page. 

I look forward to hearing from you!
