Every single shoot of Nina’s that I’ve seen has highlighted the subjects best features – whether those are inward or outward qualities. I didn’t actually consider anyone else. I loved that Nina made every idea I had come to life and look good. The transition from concept to creation was flawless, and every shot from our day reflects that. She’s quick on her feet in a relaxing and welcoming manner. (View wedding here!)
You captured the most important moments of my wedding and I will cherish them forever! Not only did you capture my wedding moments but a very important first meeting between my father and sister! Thank you so much!
She is so personable and easy going. She made the entire experience comfortable and fun. She had SO MANY wonderful ideas and the pictures turned out great!! I saw her FB pics of past work: so many cute ideas and very clear picture quality. I had also heard that she is great with coming up with the picture ideas (whereas other photographers we were considering would have relied on us for a lot if the ideas.) (View wedding here!)
She was extremely flexible and accommodating throughout the day. We wanted some pictures at a family farm with our dog and Nina did a fantastic job. Not only did we get pictures with our dog, some of these pictures are our favorite. Nina captured the humor of the day with out dog and even snapped a few pictures of her which we absolutely love. I love her photography style and how she focuses on the emotions of the day. There were staged photos, but she also captured everything in between. (View wedding here!)
Overall, I was very impressed with her professionalism and spirit. I felt that our engagement photos were in capable hands with her – from staging/posing to colors to framing the shots to encouraging us to be ourselves, we felt that she was knowledgeable and artistically compatible with what we wanted. My favorite part was that she encouraged us to have fun doing things that are unique to us. We danced around and giggled and had a blast! (View session here!)

It was a stress-free and calm experience. I loved how comfortable and at ease she made me feel! Going in to the wedding planning, finding a photographer was the number one thing that stressed me out. I have a very quiet personality and Nina didn’t push me outside of my comfort zone in the planning stages and the day of. It is hard for me to feel as comfortable in front of strangers as Nina made me feel. The whole process was simple and relaxed which was perfect for us! (View wedding here!)
I had a wonderful time. She instantly made me feel comfortable even when modeling isn’t my forte. She listened to what vibe I was going for and definitely built off that. I liked being able to have suggestions and having a lot of input while at the same time she helped where I wasn’t sure of myself. Overall my favorite part was how comfortable I felt with her and it was very personal; not just another customer posing in front of a backdrop. Plus it was super easy to set up a date and time, she’s very good about answering emails! (View session here!)

Our experience was fantastic! I was super nervous and didn’t know if the pictures were going to turn out well but she walked us through everything and kept the mood light!! She knows what she is doing and I really enjoyed it all!! (View session here!)

It was my first time I have been photographed by a professional, and it was wonderful experience. I loved every second I spent with Nina, she definitely saw beauty in me that I never saw in myself. I am beyond blessed to work with you! (View session here & here!)

The best part of working with Nina was the ease of the day… I wasn’t worried about her not capturing anything because she is always thinking ahead and aware of whats happening. I am so thankful for the HUGE variety in photos that we got! (View wedding here!)
I enjoyed my whole session – we talked and laughed and had fun! I was nervous at first but Nina made things really relaxed. (View session here!)
Very easygoing was willing to try any idea and she had a bazillion before I got there. The entire session had an overall flow to it. I had four outfits and Nina had just as many location ideas.
When she shot our wedding, I could tell that she had done it before! She met with us to ask exactly what we were looking for and if there were any shots that we couldn’t live without. That alone made us feel that she really wanted whatever we wanted – such a comforting feeling to have on your wedding day. When we did our portraits with the wedding party and our families, she helped us balance getting everything done quickly and making it fun. And that’s not an easy thing to do on such a busy day! I was possibly the most impressed when she took our individual portraits. She managed to capture the feelings we each had on that day, using everything from the lighting, wind, accessories, and our expressions. Every time I see those pictures, I remember exactly how I felt when she was taking them. Photos like that are priceless. Her eye for detail was unmatched by any other photographer I’ve seen. I am beyond thankful that we will never forget the beautiful uniqueness that we were so excited to feature at the reception! (View wedding here!)
I loved how interactive Nina was with me during my session. She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed! (View session here!)
So friendly! Passionate about what she does. Nina makes it enjoyable!
Nina was so professional and captured our day perfectly!
How easy you made it. You were super flexible and full of great ideas. I loved how my pictures turned out, and would use you again in a heartbeat.
My favorite part about working with Nina was how much fun she was and how easy it was to be around her. It wasn’t like there was a photographer there, but like a good friend who refuses to put their camera down.
It was super relaxed. I was impressed with how many great shots came from a short session. My favorite part was knowing we would receive creative photos that also captured natural face expressions and personality.
