Coto De Caza Country Club Wedding | California Wedding Photographer

Emily + JT had the most DREAMY Coto De Caza Country Club wedding!!! It was such a joy to help celebrate the two of them and to photograph their wedding day. I am always so honored that my couples chose ME to be a part of their day and to make sure it’s remembered forever!! This wedding had me in tears! I had just finished feeling so refreshed after going to a week long workshop for photography and came back feeling so refreshed. The morning of Emily & JT’s wedding was literally down pouring! I drove so carefully on my way there because it was so slippery and I was sliding all over the place. That day there was no sign of clear skies and the weather men predicted that it would be the heaviest rainfall in a while (oh great, I thought to myself). But the minute I stepped foot into the doors of the venue, everything changed. Everyone was so positive and had such big smiles. This is when I reminded myself, HELLO THEY ARE GETTING MARRIED, WHO THE HECK CARES ABOUT THE WEATHER!!! Thank goodness for that big slap in the face because the moment I saw the future Mr and Mrs handling the rain so well I knew we were going to have an amazing day! Before the ceremony started, the groomsmen and bridesmaids each separately prayed with one another. As Emily walked down the isle, chills filled my arms. They started off with praising God in worship and my entire body just felt numb. This is exactly what I needed. I felt so refreshed and so alive all over again. God put these two in my life for a reason and the timing could not have been more perfect. After worship the Sun started to shine through the room and the rain stopped. It was as if time stood still (such a beautiful moment) and just then I knew that God was with us, putting his hands on Emily and JT. This wedding truly was unlike any I have ever been apart of. Two people so in love and so happy but you could just feel the entire room apart of it all. So happy for these two!!!!! And truly, so honored to have been apart of this special day!

“You should pick Nicole as your photographer!! We picked her as our wedding photographer and have never regretted that decision. Nicole is really fun and easy to work with. Everyone loved working with her including all our vendors. The thing I love about Nicole is her ability to capture every moment. She captured the fun, silly, and emotional parts of our day without them being posed. To say the photos are amazing is an understatement. It also was pouring rain on our wedding day and Nicole stood out in the rain to get those perfect shots. The rain didn’t even bother me that day because I trusted Nicole to take amazing pictures and she did! She wants to be your best friend and makes sure that your wedding day is the day you always dreamed of.” - Emily + JT
