I'm Nicola.

I'm Nicola.

I take photos at weddings!


So this is me, an in denial thirty-something wedding photographer from lovely old Halifax in West Yorkshire! I live in a bungalow like a little old lady, in a nice little village with my other half, two children and two cats (Tinkerbell, who is a mega cat-bitch, and Sox who also goes by Princess Paws - together they are the Hissy Sisters, incase you were wondering!!) There are precisely zero nice photos of me, I'm incredibly awkward in front of the camera, so you'll have to make do with the only headshot I liked of me and the cat... 

I did old school film photography in college back in the early 00’s (I really love the smell of a darkroom!) Thinking I’d better get a sensible job I started working for a bank, but had an existential crisis, applied for a photography degree and handed in my notice - impulsive but it paid off! I went on to teach Photography and Photoshop in local adult learning centres, but as much as I loved teaching I needed more of a creative outlet and I thought I’d try my hand at weddings - and BOOM! I caught the wedding bug and this little business was born! I love being a wedding photographer, I get to spend my days taking photographs of happy people and its actually the best job in the world!

A Quick Background Story...

Random facts time!!


1. I'm a bit of a geek and have LOVED time travel and anything to do with alternate universes since reading Toms Midnight Garden as a child.


2. I'm a big book lover - My favourite book is The Time Travellers Wife, closely followed by The End Of Mr Y and anything by Sarah Waters!


3. I spent my teens basically being in love with Take That, reading Point Horror, and thinking I was Angela Chase from My So-Called Life (oh the diaries I went through!)

4. I'm an over spender and collector of ace T-shirts, dresses with pockets, big comfy cardies and boots I won't wear.


5. My number one hobby is drinking coffee and browsing Rightmove for seaside homes I'll never live in!


6. My favourite ever TV show is Fringe! If you haven't seen it then watch it, its ace! Current loves are Manifest, Outlander, After Life and Friends. I will ALWAYS love Friends!


7. I love shit old films - In no particular order: The Slipper And The Rose, Flight Of The Navigator, Splash, Bullshot and The Truman Show - Shit I know, don't judge!!

8. I'm related to Charles Darwin (distantly, but it still counts!) Good brains in this family!
