What can I say about Nicole other than we love her and her gorgeous work! We knew from our initial consultation that her easy going and bubbly personality would be a great fit for our big day. Our engagement photos were set in Spoon and Stable (which Nicole arranged) and we then walked around the North Loop. They turned out fabulous. I'm very much a planner and had lots of questions before our wedding and Nicole was prompt and always friendly in response. When a few hiccups and cold weather in May threw off our wedding day photo schedule, Nicole and her assistant were flexible and rolled with the punches. We hired Nicole on extra hours to take photos of our dance and it was well worth it. The candids are so fun and some of our favorite photos! My only regret would be not hiring her for additional hours earlier in the day. And of course, anyone who's viewed her portfolio knows she has a true talent for capturing the golden hour. My now husband and I recommend Nicole without reservation. Thank you Nicole for capturing priceless memories we'll cherish forever.
Nicole did an AMAZING job on our engagement and wedding photos! We can't thank her enough! She arrived early and worked her butt off the entire wedding day! She stayed true to who we are as a couple and showed our personalities in the pictures! We had a fall wedding and she did a fantastic job showcasing the fall colors in our photos! She photographed all of the details throughout the whole day so now we can relive the day through the pictures. She made sure she knew what was important to us so that she wouldn't miss anything! She's fast thinking on her feet and truly wonderful to work with! You will have the best experience with Nicole! She is expensive but well worth the money!! Seriously, you will not be disappointed with your photos! Book her now!
Our situation was a bit unique. We had our engagement pictures done with another photographer who ended up having to cancel (well in advance of) our wedding because her niece was getting married on the same day. She recommended Nicole, whom we met with for an hour and then crossed our fingers that it would be a good fit or our wedding pictures. Believe me, I was nervous about putting all of our wedding eggs in one basket with Nicole not having shot with her before. However, she went above and beyond our expectations. Her and her assistant were fun and sweet yet firm in wrangling everyone together and syncing with the timeline. Like the portfolio on her site shows, she creates ethereal, romantic, timeless pictures that look natural and beautiful. We were so pleased with her professionalism and technique, not to mention how quickly the turn-around time was to get all of the pictures back. I'd highly recommend her to anyone I know (or don't know).
Nicole did a FABULOUS job on our engagement and wedding photos! We could not happier. Nicole and her assistants are amazing to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone! Nicole is very creative and is obsessed with the “golden hour” images (me too) which is one of the main reason we decided to have her capture our perfect day. Nicole was very organized and prompt to answer any questions we had leading up to both our engagement session as well as our wedding. If you are looking for someone who listens to your vision, is creative, and takes beautiful photos, then Nicole is your gal!
I worked with her in June 2017. She did an amazing job! I love the photos and she’s very accommodating. She met with me before the wedding to help calm my nerves and feel better about the big day and make sure the photos were perfect!
All I can say is WOW, WOW WOW! We have gotten endless compliments on our photos and my husband and I can't stop looking at them. Nicole was open to our suggestions about photos and had such a great eye for spots at our venue. We felt instantly comfortable getting our pictures taken by her (a big feat for my partner!). She was super stealthy in our ceremony, we didn't even know she was there. Providing a second photographer was a plus for us, too! There wasn't a single shot missed. To top is off, Nicole is kind, flexible, funny, and brought a little extra joy to our day.
My husband and I used Nicole Spangler Weddings for our engagement and wedding photos. It was easily the best and most important decision we made surrounding our wedding. Nicole was always available for communication via email and helped us prepare so we would have great photos. At both sessions Nicole made us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. We were awe-struck when we saw our photos. They were the perfect representation of “us.” The hardest part was choosing our favorites. I had many engaged friends reach out on social media to get Nicole’s contact info. I was so happy to share it because I want everyone to feel the same joy that I do when I look at my engagement and wedding pictures. Choose Nicole if you want unique, romantic, and beautiful wedding photos to cherish for a lifetime!
Nicole was recommended to me by someone who saw her work. I checked out her work and met with her in her studio and never looked back. Her work is amazing, romantic, and perfect! We love all of pictures an how she truly captured our special day. We had so much fun and Nicole helped make it that way. Many thanks for a job well done. I highly recommend Nicole Spangler Photography.
Nicole was absolutely fantastic to work with! We were both a little nervous for the engagement photo session, but Nicole put us at ease right away & we absolutely loved our photos. She was so organized & thorough when it came to the wedding photos & we loved the results! She has a beautiful & unique way of capturing the day & we couldn't be happier with our photos. We got all of our wedding photos (over 1,200 of them!) back in just over a week. I would 110% recommend Nicole to any upcoming brides/grooms & she is absolutely worth every penny!
Nicole's work is amazing and the images we received after our engagement session and wedding were jaw dropping. I couldn't believe it was us! Nicole has a fun outgoing personality and brings several ideas to the table. We are so blessed to have chosen her. Highly recommend and so lucky she was local, which was very important.
Nicole did a LOVELY job capturing our engagement and wedding photos! We couldn't be happier with our photos. Nicole is very easy and flexible to work with. I would highly recommend her to any bride and groom looking for a photographer. Thank you, Nicole!
I can't say better things about Nicole- she immediately makes you feel comfortable with her witty humor and passion for a great photo. She felt like an actual guest at our wedding because of the connection she made with us and the attention to who you are as a couple. We had a cloudy, somewhat rainy day for our wedding, but Nicole found a moment of sunshine to capture the perfect "Golden Hour" photos for us.
Please don't hesitate to book Nicole Spangler Photography!!! Nicole photographed our barn wedding on 9/17/16 at Dellwood Barn and did an AMAZING job. She captured our day and our love so well! She was incredibly kind, fun and excited about us and our day; which really helped add more excitement. Having Nicole as our photographer was absolutely one of the best decisions we ever could have made in the wedding planning process. I HIGHLY recommend her.
Nicole is fantastic. She made us feel so comfortable when taking our pictures. She offered great suggestions, but also listened to us when we had suggestions. My friends, family, and even random people who saw our pictures online reached out to me to compliment on Nicole's amazing work. I would recommend her a thousand times over.
Nicole was such a joy to work with for our engagement photos and wedding photos! She has a great eye, and is so fun! She made sure to capture all the special moments of our day - we were very happy!
Nicole was such a great find! We had a great feeling about her and her work from our first time meeting. Our engagement session was a lot of fun. She was so flexible and helpful but also let us just be us. The day of the wedding I was amazed by her and her assistant, especially how they worked together. They captured the emotion of our day so well and worked great with our other vendors (videographers, venue staff) and our family and friends. We really felt like Nicole was such a huge part of our day and we are SO incredibly thankful for the beautiful pictures she provided for us. From the getting ready to the sunset and dance, she captured everything so beautifully! Every time I look at them it takes me back to our day! Thank you SO much Nicole!
Nicole was an absolute joy to work with! Finding a wedding photography can be a very difficult process, but once you find "The One" it's golden. That's exactly what we got from Nicole, pure gold. We loved all of our pictures but those Golden Hour photos are just too good to be true.
We were so happy that we hired Nicole to be our wedding photographer. She is so easy to talk to and her attention to detail is spot on! She went above and beyond what we expected of her on our wedding day, and made everything run so smoothly. I recommend Nicole to everyone I know that is getting married. Thank you Nicole for all our memories we get to cherish for a lifetime.
Nicole was our photographer for our destination wedding in Mexico and she was amazing! She was a blessing to have with on our special day. She did a wonderful job capturing so many cherished moments of our special day. She made us feel so loved and comfortable. We absolutely love our photos and memories! xoxo
Nicole did an amazing job at our wedding. Especially with the incredible task of taking on a wedding party of close to 30 people! She captured amazing photos that we will treasure the rest of our lives. Candid and planned pictures proves she has a true talent! Worth every penny.
Nicole did an amazing job photographing our destination wedding! We were so pleased at how she captured the essence of our day. Her photography is phenomenal and she captured all the details of our ceremony. It's not just any photographer who can capture the emotion of the day and she did it! I would highly recommend Nicole for your wedding and family photographs. Her unique perspective through the lens and the way she is able to utilize natural lighting provided us with photos filled with memories to last a life time.
Nicole was a huge part of our wedding! Starting with the engagement session, she was fun, creative and made us feel very comfortable. We were thrilled with our photos! She also did our wedding photos. From the start of the day she helped the day flow, kept me relaxed and we had a ton of fun. She incorporated everything we had chatted about before the wedding and was sure to capture the most important moments. I would recommend Nicole in a heartbeat! Thank you for the amazing photos that will last us a lifetime!
Nicole was our dream photographer! She was, not only technically and professionally impressive, but also personable. She made us feel comfortable immediately. Her attention to detail, in her work, packaging her product, and the overall experience was incredible. I can't recommend her enough!
My now husband actually found Nicole for the surprise engagement in Dec 2014. She was so friendly and professional, and the photos turned out so great that it was a no- brainer to have her photograph our wedding in July 2015! We had a somewhat unruly wedding party, and very large family, but Nicole and her assistant handled everyone and everything like the pros that they are! They got incredible shots that we have received so many compliments on! She managed to capture our Special Day in a way that almost allows us to re-live some of those magical moments. I would recommend Nicole to everyone!
Nicole was so easy to work with and had some really creative and genuine photo ideas. She made working with her completely comfortable and I would recommend her to all my friends. She's wonderful! Becky & Danny Rudeen
