Hi! My name is Nicole and I am a 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 destination weddings + elopements, engagement and portrait sessions, with over 10 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 love, 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 fresh, soft, ethereal feel, or sometimes a moody, film-emulated 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 have been awarded the Wedding Wire 2016, 2017 & 2018 "Couple's Choice Award." My wedding imagery has also been featured in the following online publications: Wedding Lovely, Artfully Wed, and The Well Groomed Groom.  I was voted by The Virgin Islands Daily News, Reader's Choice: "Best Wedding Photographer of the Virgin Islands on St. Croix 2017."

Once upon a time, I lived on a ship for 100 days, circumnavigating the world, with Semester at Sea. An adventurer at heart, I have traveled to 6 continents, 54 countries, and over190 cities across the globe - one of my life's goal is to visit100 countries. I am currently the resident artist at the Henle Gallery and also teach photography part-time to high school students at the Good Hope Country Day School (my Alma mater) - both bring me great joy! I am absolutely passionate about what I do and am always striving to be a better photographer. I live for the ocean...am ruled by the moon...inspired by good conversations...and could eat sushi everyday :) I am a bibliophile (proud bookworm), and when not shooting on location or editing my life away, you can find me at the Barre, on my yoga mat or 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 connecting with you!
