You want to look and feel amazing and not to worry about being awkward or nervous in front of the camera.

You want images full of heartfelt happiness, genuine emotion, warmth, love and smiles.

The first look, the happy tears, the kiss; You want to trust that those moments will be captured by your photographer authentically and beautifully…

Just real, warm, love-filled images.

I’m Nicola and I am a documentary style wedding photographer in Kent for couples just like you.

I don’t do bossy. But I do smile lots and reassure you that you’re doing great. I blend into your wedding and feel like a guest. I earn your trust and you give me genuine and authentic emotions. You have an amazing day and I create warm, wonderful memories of it and portraits of you looking amazing.

Thank you for taking such gorgeous photos, there were so many little details and bits of the day that we just didn’t take in or get to see so it’s great to have these memories we can look back on for years to come. We love them.

Oh thank you so much for the pictures, we LOVE them. You captured the day perfectly, thank you.

We couldn’t possibly pick a favourite, they are exactly what we wanted.



Oh my goodness! We are so in love with them! They’re absolutely everything we wanted and more. 
We loved having you with us on our day so much, you fitted right in like one of our guests and all of our friends and family said the same . We really can’t thank you enough!
