Nicole Laing Photography


For me, photography is documenting moments and feelings that you want to remember for a lifetime. I'm here to make sure your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible which is why I always go above & beyond to ensure the best photos and experience. Your wedding images will become an heirloom and I take pride in making sure each detail and moment is captured with care. From the first time we meet to lining up your bridal party on the wedding day, I'm there not only as your storyteller, but as a friend.

We'd Likely be a great fit if...

  • You're drawn to neutrals & pastels, bright whites and clean lines
  • You gravitate towards the softness of natural light and outdoor locations
  • You're down to trek a little bit off the beaten path for amazing photos

(or even just to leave dinner for a few moments to capture sunset portraits!)

  • Your wedding day's main focus is on the love you and your partner share
  • You're obsessed with details and appreciate seeing all of the sweet & tiny elements that go into a wedding day

Let's be friends!

I've been photographing weddings for four years now alongside my sweet husband Andrew who also happens to be one of my main second shooters (& creates wedding films when he's not assisting me!). We pretty much live & breathe all things wedding but when we’re not at a wedding, we love spending time cooking, cuddling our two cats, playing board games and traveling when we can. We’re SO thankful for the career that we have & that we get to photograph and film love stories together.

"On our wedding day, they spent the whole day with us, keeping us calm and on schedule. They made me feel so confident and beautiful as a bride, and really captured the whole day plus some. We are so very thankful for Nicole and her team and could not recommend them enough to any couple or family looking to work with experienced, thoughtful, and kind people."

"Nicole is so sweet and can capture the pure joy of a wedding day. Each and every photo we got back made us smile ear to ear. We were able to really enjoy all the little details that we may have missed on our wedding day because of the photos that she took. I have also never seen turnaround time so quick for wedding photos! We made the best decision by booking Nicole and we couldn’t be happier. She is amazing at what she does & incredibly fun to be around."

—Tori & Tanner

"Nicole was responsive, easy to work with and incredibly helpful. She did a wonderful job capturing every detail and moment of our day, and she kept our timeline in tact. I don't know what I would have done without her! She's stellar at what she does."
