Hello, I'm Nick



I grew up in the foothills of Denver and spent much of my time outside. It was natural that I fell into landscape photography when I first picked up a camera. Almost every weekend I'd drive to my next adventure with my camera in hand.

Once I began to fill my photography with people, portraiture became my new love. I helped a friend shoot a wedding and realized that weddings are one of the most important stories in anyone’s life. They are more than just a celebration.

Weddings are a series of moments, big and small, that weave the ultimate story. It's my job to help reveal the love and commitment you both share, and the whole multitude of emotions felt throughout the day. From the understated to the boisterous, from the surprising to the intimate. I love capturing it all, whether it's a quiet elopement in the woods or a big party in the city.

Highly rated and recommended on facebook and google reviews.

Over 130 weddings photographed. 

10 years ago, I developed my first roll of Kodak Tri-X. It's been an ongoing adventure ever since. 

Inside My Photography Process

Looking

"Photography teaches you to look. To appreciate all kind of things." - Saul Leiter

Every photograph begins with the photographer opening their eyes and looking at the world. In fact, most of what I do is looking; looking for pockets of light, for candid moments, for compelling angles and rich textures. And I don't often have to look that hard. Where there is emotion, there is art, and weddings are never lacking in emotion. It doesn't matter if the nuptials are held in a backlit forest grove or the bride's backyard, striking moments are always abound. I just have to look for them.

Adjusting

"It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument." - Eve Arnold

The camera is only as good as the photographer looking through it, so if I don't have a clear vision of what I want to capture, all the technical wizardry in the world won't help. That's why I spend time adjusting in order to achieve the right mood and feeling. Sometimes this means giving people directions and helping them pose. Other times I'm cutting the frame with an interesting texture. But mostly, I'm playing with the light. I search for blue hour tones to conjure a soft, lyrical ambience, or golden hour tones to achieve warm flattering dispositions. A slight adjustment can turn a good picture into a great one, so it's important I always stay open to the suggestion of the moment.

Documenting

"There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment." - Robert Frank

At the end of the day, all my looking and adjusting is in service of accurate documentation. Each crackle of delight and burst of surprise deserves to be captured and preserved. I want to regift every thrilling reaction and gleeful revelation to those that were there, and those that weren't. I don't play with angles and framing and light to create something new, I do it to convert a three dimensional living moment into a two dimensional image without losing any of the humanity along the way.
