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 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 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 "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. Most recently, 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, 52 countries, and 189 cities across the globe - one of my life's goal is to visit100 countries. I won a karaoke contest in the early 2000's , singing “Don’t Speak” by No Doubt & “Killing Me Softly” by the Fugees. I love the ocean, live for full moons and could eat sushi everyday. I am an avid reader, and when not shooting on location, I find peace and tranquility on my yoga mat.

I look forward to hearing from you!
