I strive to capture the love and authenticity of you in an honest, timeless and organic manner. With a non-invasive approach, I work to make sure you are comfortable, capture emotions that are raw and prefer to use light that is natural.

What is the experience like with Nicole?

I truly love being a part of your couple's wedding journey and giving you more than just beautiful photos. I believe in giving you a custom and stress-free experience from start-to-finish by meeting with you at least once so that we can get to know each other. I'll help with preparing for your wedding day, and offer lots of suggestions from a photographer and bride's perspective so that you end up with gorgeous, natural and artistic photos. Once your gallery is complete, I'm here to provide a custom experience with choosing your albums, prints and frames.

Omg, where do I begin! Nicole is the sweetest, most reliable and easiest person to work with. She made the whole process so smooth with outlining the timeline for the day and keeping everything on track. The whole family and the little ones loved her as well! She was so fun and creative, it just made our wedding day perfect. Her work is unquestionably amazing.

"The Joanna Gaines of photography!" Nicole is one of the most detail-oriented, patient, considerate, creative people I have ever been so lucky to have met. Her bright, classic, soft, airy photography-style produces the most gorgeous, romantic pictures! She truly is a natural photographer and SO much more! When working with Nicole, she would effortlessly provide such unique, creative ideas as if she were a wedding planner. My wedding day went without a glitch because of her extensive timeline. Honestly, she made our wedding day and entire journey more special than we could’ve ever hoped for. Simply put, Nicole is a natural, perfectionist photographer with a laid-back approach that is very hard to come by. My husband and I could never thank her enough for leaving us with photos that capture the most beautiful moments and memories that he and I get to share and smile about FOREVER!

Booking Nicole was hands down the best decision we could have made for our wedding. We live in DC, but got married in NY, and she absolutely kept me at ease every step of the way. She sent me a detailed minute to minute timeline for the day of and even asked for specific family combinations we wanted photographed so we didn't miss any photo opportunities. On top of being super organized and responsive, she is SO sweet and our photos are gorgeous. 10/10 would recommend.

I really can’t say enough good things about Nicole. I felt like we became friends months before our wedding day even happened. Our wedding day QUICKLY came and went and when we received our album I literally felt like I was scrolling through a Pinterest page! I love every single one of our photos, some of which brought tears to my eyes.

Nicole is a world-class professional! Choosing a photographer is not easy but Nicole will make ensure you made the right choice. The reason I chose Nicole is because she gets it. It was evident through conversation with her that she paid close attention to details, wanted to know our story and exactly what I wanted to do. In addition to that she gave her creative input when I needed her help. Working with her the day of was the pinnacle of her professionalism, she was so easy to work with and allowed us to feel very comfortable. Would recommend her to anyone, and absolutely plan to work with her again!

It's rare to find someone who's kindness comes through in an email, but that's what I found with Nicole. She made me feel comfortable in front of the camera (not an easy thing to do at 8 months pregnant) and the pictures were everything that I had hoped for. In combination with being a wonderful person, she is a fantastic photographer and is always willing to give suggestions on what to wear for sessions, how to pose and what shots would turn out beautifully. I highly recommend her to anyone that's looking for more than just another photographer (although she's great at that too!), but looking for a kind soul as well

This is the second year we used Nicole Detone Photography and we couldn't be HAPPIER!!!! Nicole knows how to make you feel comfortable, welcome and un-rushed! She works well with children and has the patience of a saint. We didn't think our pictures couldn't get better than the first time we shot with her but they did! We want to make this a family tradition for many years to come!

the matthews family

We did a family session with Nicole in 2014 and have been hooked ever since! Every fall we are sure to clear our schedules to be available for her Fall Mini Session (even if that requires my husband taking the red eye home from a business trip!). She is so easy to work with and the end results are always stunning!

The photos Nicole took of my family will be keepsakes for a lifetime. Not only are the photos absolutely stunning (she's a true artist), but Nicole was so kind and pleasant and understanding--in addition to being very organized and professional. I highly recommend!
