HELLO — I'M NICK!
— a photographer, artist, explorer, and thrill seeker. I thrive on nature and spend a good majority of my days outdoors. Scroll down to view my work and learn more about why I love telling stories.
As a wedding photographer and videographer, I believe that the images and films you receive should reflect your story and personality, and I strive to make each image I take and wedding film I create as authentic as possible. I consider myself a storyteller, and will capture your story in a unique way to achieve this authenticity and natural look I aim to embody. Shooting with both digital and 35mm film produces a wide mix of photos I can use for your gallery, and you can bet that I will be including the bloopers — the blurry, out of focus shots nobody thinks they will like but end up loving!! Ask about my 35mm film and Super 8mm film add-ons to get even more unique footage on your wedding day.
In the images and videos I create, I combine intimacy with the vastness of nature, often defying the basic rules of photography to get a shot that's more interesting. I shoot from out-of-the-box perspectives and focus on personal moments to create detailed memories. I want my images to breathe, to feel life-like. I like to work with you or your planner on a timeline to make it easier on the both of us, and during your wedding day will give a mixture of prompts and dramatic poses as your photos should be natural and reflect you. And, if you have pose ideas, even better!
My home bases are Bend, Oregon and Indianapolis, Indiana, but I shoot weddings + engagements throughout the Pacific Northwest, Midwest, your favorite National Park, and beyond. I love shooting destination weddings because they usually take me somewhere new and exciting, and the journey there is always fun. Most of the weddings I've shot have been in the Midwest and Northwest, but I've also shot weddings all over the United States and other countries such as Ireland and Italy! When I'm not shooting weddings or editing in coffee shops, I'm usually out exploring somewhere new or working to create personal work, which you can explore some of in the links above. I am always here to answer questions.
