All about nLP


Hi there! I'm Nicole. My interest in weddings and all the amazing details that come with your special day began almost 10 years ago now. I once worked at a bridal shop in Des Moines, where I fell in love with the not only the dresses, but the clients & the magic that came with each bride who walked in the door. I knew I just HAD to be involved in the event industry! I have always had a passion for art- taking as many classes as I could fit into my busy summers at local art centers.

Photography almost fell into my lap a few years ago when I was called by one of our DJ's to come to a wedding and photograph the wedding day for a last minute bride in need who's photographer had cancelled. I said yes and I am SO glad I did! From there on, I started second shooting for a local photographer who taught me so much. I eventually had to try it on my own and immediately fell in love. There's nothing I love more than getting to know you as not just a client, but as a friend, so that your event is flawless and full of love. I want to hear your vision & be the person who gets to capture your day in that perfect light. My approach to weddings comes with a calm and quiet nature. I want to step back and observe to capture your moments as they unfold. It is so important for me to know you as a couple in order to deliver photos that you will cherish for years to come. 


 All that being said, I'm so glad you're here and I would be overjoyed to work with you on achieving your dream.


So, say hello & let's chat!
