I knew that Nina would be a great photographer for us and that we would receive incredible photos. What I didn’t know at the time was how much fun Nina is as a person and that I was gaining a friend as well!

Leading up to the wedding, Nina was available for advice on our timeline, vendors, and pretty much anything else I threw out at her. During the wedding, she was super fun to have around and she mastered the “there-but-not-there” aspect of a photographer. It felt like she had a lot of fun which helped me relax even more.

Nina provided us with absolutely breathtaking photos. She really captured us as a couple and provided the best experience that we could have imagined.
