We are so glad you’re here! Nick has been a full-time wedding photographer in Temecula since 2013. We are now a husband & wife wedding photography/coordinating duo.

Picture it: Temecula, a crisp October day, the sun doing its thing, and love hanging in the air like a cluster of grapes. We'll keep it real as we flip through some photos, sharing the candid moments that made this wedding so special. No frills, no fuss, just genuine memories captured with a hint of East Coast charm and the best live Saxophonist I've ever heard.

I hired Nick for my engagement photos and my wedding and couldn't have been happier! Nick and Rosie were very professional, calm, and worked well with everyone! We had over 250 guests, so I know that it was sometimes like herding cats getting every body on the same page,  they were able to capture so many special moments that day even with everything going on!

Thank you so much for capturing my special day!!

"One of my best friends got engaged a few months before I did, and had her engagement photos done with Nick. the photos were absolutely stunning! So of course I asked who her photographer was!"

Alyssa and Nicolas

We got married September 2021 at South Coast Winery in Temecula. Nick and his team made our day. It rained on our all outdoor wedding which had me as a bride pretty nervous. Nick and his team were so calm and worked with us through all the craziness and made everything work. I cannot thank them enough for making our day so special. We had to push back the wedding and they accommodated us in every way. We are truly so grateful for Nick and his team for making it the best day!

Nick is an incredible photographer, I would 10/10 recommend him to anyone and everyone! He did both our engagement session and our wedding, and both turned out phenomenal. He drove all the way to Laguna Beach for our engagement session, and was willing to shoot at two different locations. My husband and I are not used to being the center of attention, and he made us feel so comfortable and made the entire session so fun! Come wedding day, he did an incredible job of keeping us organized and on track during all our photos. He was so calm and laid back the entire day and made us feel so relaxed throughout the day. His photos are gorgeous and I cannot wait to frame them in our home! If you are looking in the Temecula area, do yourself a favor and hire Nick!

 Nick was a referral from my cousin who got married at a winery in Temecula, we were at the wedding and saw how professional his team was and loved his photos. We appreciated working with Nick because he is so talented and versatile! He came to Laguna Beach for our engagement shoot and then our wedding venue was in downtown San Diego, no matter where he shot the pictures always came out amazing!! The day of our wedding his photography & videography team were such a joy and so professional to work with, it was truly a pleasure to work with Nick and his team!! They captured every moment perfectly and we are so thankful we get to cherish this day forever because of them! Thank you!!

"We couldn’t have wished for a better photographer during this wedding process!"

Laura and Joe

Nick was amazing to work with and we were completely blown away by the photos! He captured exactly the vibe we wanted. Also huge props to him and his team for how professional they were on the day of and somehow completely unseen. I've been to weddings where photographers could be slightly distracting...but they have this down to a science!

"The photos were absolutely stunning! We were seriously blown away. So magical"

Andrea and Ryan

He was extremely flexible, and professional throughout the entire experience. He had a great balance of giving us direction in posing, while also giving us some freedom to take a few photos/poses we particularly wanted. Some of our groomsmen had no experience taking photos, and Nick was fantastic about telling them exactly what to do, in a relaxed and 'chill' environment. When I was getting ready in the morning, Nick and his second shooter took the initiative and got photos of my jewelry / shoes / Bible, etc. without me even knowing or asking - it was awesome!  The most talked about part of my wedding among my bridal party was how great my photographer was! Would definitely recommend!

"I have experienced some good wedding photographers being in other family member's weddings in the past, but I was BLOWN AWAY with Nick!"

Grace & David

We were so shocked to get these so soon! We were laughing, crying, admiring over all of them. You and your team did such an awesome marvelous job of capturing the mood and love of the wedding. We can hardly express our gratitude

"These are AMAZING!!!!"

Jocelyn and Toby

We finally were able to have our big wedding party celebration in June 2021 and had two photographers (including Nick) and two videographers. Everyone was extremely nice and professional.

Both times we got a highlight reel of photos within just a few days which was awesome! The photos taken both times were gorgeous - I'm so excited to see the video!

If you're considering Nick for your wedding or special event I would not hesitate to recommend!
