Nicole is wonderful to work with. She is amazingly talented, and is able to really connect with clients to put everyone at ease. Because everyone is so comfortable, she is able to get in there and capture those moments that you'll cherish forever.
On our wedding day, when I walked down in my dress and my dad saw me for the first time, he just happened to be facing the opposite direction. When he turned around, he literally lost his breath and then teared up, walking over to give me a hug. It was so touching, I started to cry too! We didn't even realize that Nicole was there, but she documented the whole thing and when we saw the images I was stunned. They were so beautiful.
She can read the light, and photograph at interesting and unexpected angles. Our final images were so unique, I couldn't have been happier with them. Just perfect!

Like her bio says, Nicole is not just a photographer, but a storyteller. She didn't just take pictures of my wedding, she captured amazing moments, even if they only happened for a second. I was married at the Ohio Statehouse and we held our reception at Ohio Stadium. Both venues provided so many great photo opps, but Nicole's pictures were magical. All of my family and friends cannot stop raving about her abilities and the gift she's given us - a documentary of our best day ever.
On top of it all, Nicole is a sweetheart! You couldn't ask for a more pleasant and sweet person to work with during such a stressful and exciting time.
THANK YOU FROM MY HEART, NICOLE DIXON PHOTOGRAPHIC!

My wife and I first worked with Nicole during our pregnancy and when it came time for our wedding, there was no doubt who we wanted to be the photographer. Our wedding was in North Carolina and as with any wedding planning, we had our fair share of stress and uncertainty. Pretty much all of our guests were coming from out of state so planning all of the ins and outs and accommodations was overwhelming at times to say the least. Nicole however wasn't one of those concerns. She was easy to work with and easy to get everything set up.
Working with Nicole is like working with a good friend. My only real concern with pictures was to have something that actually captured us as who we are. I just didn't want the stale posed pictures that look like something you would get at prom. And that is my favorite part about working with Nicole. It didn't matter if it was our pregnant pictures, our birth photos, our wedding pictures, or our family pictures. She always seems to find that way of not only getting great pictures, but also finds a way to capture the personality or emotion of the people in the pictures. And isn't that what you really want anyway? To me the whole point is to be able to look at a picture and have it instantly bring back the emotions and memories of that event so that you get to relive the best and most important moments of your life forever. And that's why there is a print from our wedding and a print from our family session hanging in our living room. And that's also why we continue to go to Nicole for our pictures.

My experience with Nicole over the years has been nothing short of amazing. She is a true professional in every sense. Her calm and easy personality made us feel so comfortable. My husband and I got married several years ago and our family and friends continue to talk about how wonderful our photos are; still so fresh and modern. Many of them even booked her for their own weddings. And I still refer her to brides all the time. After our own wedding I remember going to see our images after we came back from our honeymoon and crying like a baby as we were reviewing them. It was priceless to us to relive all those moments. My husband was even excited and he's not one to show too much emotion. It was hard to pick favorites but we ended up purchasing a beautiful black leather, classic style album and had our name engraved on it. Another choice I would NEVER change. I encourage every couple to go all out when it comes to the album! We really do look at ours all the time. It's also been really fun to show our daughters. They think its magical to see Mommy & Daddy as a "Prince" and "Princess". When we started having children Nicole began photographing our family too. Now we have a really large collection of beautiful images that tell the story of our family; starting from our engagement. Since our family is still growing we will have many more sessions with Nicole. Its really wonderful to have the same photographer with us for every stage of our lives. In the future we're going to ask her to put together an album with all of our family highlights.

We were referred to Nicole Dixon, and couldn't believe we even entertained other photographers. She was easy to work with as it related to business, scheduling, and special accommodations. We enjoyed her so much, we referred her to another couple and have used her for our first born's first year sessions - which have turned out amazing!!

We had a marvelous time with Nicole as our photographer. Her images are vivid and bright, and she has a very artistic flair! The photographs I have are not like any of the other cell phone or digital camera images snapped by friends and relatives. Nicole not only happily snapped family portraits during the cocktail hour, but took the time to make sure she got every picture my husband and I (and our families!) wanted -- even flustering our wedding planning by sneaking us down the road to capture a few last-minute images we wanted before the reception :)
One of the things I especially loved was a free engagement session before the wedding. My husband and I are both Buckeyes and we wanted to drive to campus with our two pups and have pictures taken all over the place -- at our fraternity and sorority houses, at the Oval, Mirror Lake, the Whispering Wall, etc. Nicole happily trekked all over campus with us in the August heat, allowing us wardrobe changes and working with our dogs (one of whom is not the brightest). We promptly received word that all our images were edited and available for our perusal. With Nicole's expert help, we had a beautiful engagement album that we used as our guest book at the wedding!
After the wedding, my husband and I wanted thank you cards with wedding pictures on the front. Nicole expedited her already-fast turnaround time so that we could have beautiful images to choose from. It seemed like we had barely placed the order before the thank you notes were delivered on our doorstep!
All in all, we had a fantastic experience with Nicole. She is happy to meet in person, chat on the phone, or communicate via e-mail. Everything we have gotten so far has been beautiful and fabulous, and every step of the way we have been the limiting factor (so many choices!), never Nicole. If you have heard horror stories of brides not seeing their pictures for months after the wedding, or not getting albums until a year later like some of my friends, you definitely do not have to worry about any of that with Nicole. You will not regret choosing to work with Nicole Dixon Photographic!

The most important memories from a wedding are captured in the photographs. From the first phone call and initial meeting with Nicole, we knew we found the right photographer. Nicole has many package deals that include everything or smaller packages with the availablitility to purchase different items a la carte. We decided to figure out what we wanted in advance and make that our package. On the day of the wedding, Nicole and two photographers came to the house and began taking pictures, it was relaxing and fun. Nicole took beautiful shots of the bride and the bridal party and our family. We then moved to the venue for additional photographs. Nicole captured the day beautifully, pictures were available within two weeks of the wedding with an album that Nicole put together to help us get started in selecting our pictures. We had +900 pictures to choose from. Several weeks prior to the wedding, I asked Nicole to take a picture of our immediate family including our new son in law that I could use as a family portrait. Needless to say, I completely forgot about that the day of the wedding but Nicole remembered and took several beautiful shots. The hardest thing we have encountered is selecting our favorite shots because every single picture is beautiful. As parents of the bride, we highly recommend Nicole Dixon Photographic for your event not only because she is a gifted photographer but for her creativity, professionalism and she is a genuinely nice person with a great sense of humor!!

Nicole Dixon Photography is absolutely amazing. She was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. She stays on top of things without overwhelming the bride. Her work is stunning, people ask me all the time where we got married because they don't believe it was Columbus, Ohio. Nicole captured our wedding moments perfectly. I cannot express in words how much we recommend her work.

I am so glad we chose Nicole Dixon to photograph our day. Our pictures were amazing and Nicole was always professional and fun to be with. I highly recommend choosing Nicole for your big day.

Nicole is fantastic: very organized, creative and helpful. We were delighted with the final pictures -- and there are alot! She and her assistant spent 8.5 hours with us on wedding day and captured every detail beautifully. She then worked patiently with me to create an album and order final pictures. I would certainly choose her again.

Great photos and great photographer! The photographer was something we had decided to splurge on since I felt it would be the biggest longterm investment! Nicole was very helpful and responsive to what we were looking for, not to mention great at getting back to calls/emails quickly. Although, I should have paid closer attention to the prices of the photo collections/products! Truthfully though, her work is worth the money! Overall, beautiful photos and service!

We couldn't have asked for anything more! Nicole was great to work with from beginning to end. She made us feel comfortable and always responded to calls and emails quickly. She really helped make our day go so smoothly and the pictures are amazing! We had such a hard time choosing our favorites.

Nicole was my first and only choice for our photographer. I had seen her work before and absolutely fell in love with her style. She is a little pricy, but what you get from her in terms of quality doesn't really compare what I've seen from cheaper photographers.

Nicole Dixon made our wedding day perfect. She is professional and talented, organized and punctual. She kept the entire wedding day on schedule and managed to organize our two large families quickly. The final product speaks volumes. She is more than worth it. This is your wedding day, make sure you have the best capture your special moments. Nicole went above and beyond her duties, she brought extra photographers and stayed later than I imagined because we were all having so much fun. Truly the best decision we made in our entire wedding planning process. A must hire!

If you are considering hiring Nicole as your photographer, don't look any further. The first time we met with Nicole, my husband and I immediately knew she was perfect for us. She is very easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable around her. Our engagement photos were done in the winter around Colubus, and we absolutely loved them. Nicole traveled to Youngstown to shoot our wedding and came up the day before to scout out locations to shoot on our wedding day. Nicole was organized, professional, and most important- so much fun to work with! I couldn't be any more pleased with our photographs. We are going to have such a hard time sorting through the almost 1,000 pictures when we order!

if you want to obsess over your wedding photos for the rest of your life, hire Nicole. She is great to work with and I couldntbe happier with the pictures.

For my wedding the pictures was extremely important. I've heard so many horror stories about photographers. I researched for a few months to find the best photographer and i did! Nicole is so awesome and easy to work with. She replies to emails quickly and answered all of my questions. Our engagement session was fun and the pictures were amazing. I surprised my husband by entering the outside ceremony in a helicopter. The most important picture i wanted is my husbands reaction to the helicopter and she captured it! I loved that in my proofs each photo was different instead of 10 of the same picture. Nicole is VERY talented and worth the money. We are expecting our first child in December and Nicole is definitely taking pictures of our baby. I would recommend her to anyone that wants EXCELLENT quality. Our photo album was beyond our expectations.

We met with a few different photographers before our wedding. When selecting Nicole we found her just to be very easy going and we liked that. We got our engagement photos done and were in love with her. I could not have been happier the day of. She was very efficient with her time as I don't do well standing and posing for pictures for hours and hours. She was on time, and quite honestly I didnt even notice her at the ceremony or reception she was so good! The photos are exactly what I wanted there are so many great ones it will be hard to pick. She just was so well organized the day of, you can tell she scouted the location ahead of time so she knew exactly where she wanted us and also listed to me if I had something specific I wanted. We have a very strong headed family and she took charge so that it didnt turn into a cicus while doing family photos. If we ever need a photographer in the future I know exactly who I am calling she is just perfect!!!!

Nicole is amazing to work with. She is flexible, kind, patient, willing to travel, and most important, an artist. She will capture not just portraits, but also, the emotion of the day.

One of the very best decisions my husband and I made during the wedding planning process was choosing Nicole Dixon to photograph our big day. As all brides know, wedding planning is not an easy task. I spent days researching photographers. To me, it was an extremely important decision to make and one I did not want to rush into.
I find Nicole via The Knot. I viewed the photos on her website and was immediately inspired. During my initial conversation with Nicole over the phone, I knew I had chosen the perfect photographer for our special day. It was important to me not only to find a photographer who takes wonderful photos, but also one who is friendly, professional, and easy to work with. Nicole was all of these things.
Our engagement session was held on a sweltering summer day, but Nicole made the photo session so much fun that we didn't even pay attention to the heat. On our wedding day, there were people running around everywhere throughout my parent's house. Even during all the chaos, Nicole and her assistant were so calm and professional, making their way around the house and snapping photos of every hilarious, blissful, and bittersweet moment.
The images Nicole captured were absolutely stunning. Thanks to her, my husband and our family and friends will always remember the emotions that were felt that day and we will cherish the photos forever. Nicole has an amazing gift for photography, and for all you brides and/or grooms who are hesitating about who to hire for your big day, I highly recommend choosing Nicole. You won't be disappointed.
