Bride to be! This is one of the most exciting times in your lives and ​it can also be ​overwhelming! Especially when it comes to choosing your wedding photographer to capture​ it all. 

You can call me your wedding day bestie! Just like a good best friend, I will always have your back in any way that I can whether its fluffing or carrying your dress, fixing the strap on your heels, letting you know if you need a lip gloss touchup or if you need an honest opinion, I'm your girl! If you ever start to stress, I will be the one telling you everything will be ok! Not only will I make you look and feel absolutely gorgeous but I will make sure you both feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera on one of the most special days in your lives. Your wedding experience should memorable and enjoyable​!​

Your love deserves to be ​beautifully captured in the most dreamy romantic soft light​. Looking back at your photographs, you should relive that joy and emotion you both felt for each other.

These photographs are not only ​​for you. These photographs are for your children, and for your grandchildren. They will preserve your family's history ​and legacy ​for generations to come.

the wedding experience


everything you need to know about

Schedule a consultation!

Connecting on a personal level with each other is so important because during the wedding day we will spend a lot of time together! Before we talk all about your wedding vision, first I want to hear all about you both! How you both met? Where was your first date at? When did you know they were the one? And how he popped the question!

Because you will already have so much going on, I want this planning process to be as streamlined as possible. All of your documents and information will be located in one spot. From our emails, proposal & contract, your wedding questionnaire to your custom wedding timeline 

The process

Once your wedding date is secure, now that fun part really begins! You will receive your own copy of my Christy Nicole Bridal Guide magazine in the mail with over 100 pages of helpful wedding information to get you started. To preparing for your engagement session to prepping you for your big day! I got you covered!

SECURING your date

This is one of one favorite parts of the planning because we get to have a little pow wow! These sessions will allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, get to know my shooting style and I get to teach you all of my posing tricks and tips so that by the wedding day you will be rock stars in front of the camera. I truly believe they are a vital part of the wedding experience and will make a big difference in the quality of your wedding photos. 

engagement session

My goal is to make your wedding day as stress free as possible! 3-4 months leading up to your wedding day, I will send you a wedding questionnaire to fill out that will include questions regarding your wedding day; first names of your bridal party & immediate family members, and how you would like certain things handled. This will allow me to create your custom wedding day timeline and family formals list so that everything is organized.


Your day is going to be absolutely amazing and it will feel like it’s flying by. I love arriving early so that I can scope out your venue, have a chance to meet your family & bridesmaids and of course give you a hug!

the wedding day

Finally the moment you have been waiting for where you get to marry the love of your life. My 2nd shooter and I will capture all of the traditional moments along with all of the moments in between that you didn't even know were happening. We will grab quick just married sunset portraits where you both get to enjoy a moment alone together before you join cocktail hour. The night will include dances and toasts. Followed by partying on the dancing floor, cake cutting and a final hug goodbye.

you're married!

If your collection includes a wedding album, we will begin the album designing process first thing in my off-season when I can dedicate my full attention to designing. If your collection does not include an album, don't worry you always have the option to purchase an album anytime after the wedding.

I accept a limited number of weddings each year to ensure that my couples have the best experience.


The wedding collection is great if your ceremony & reception will be at the same location and you won't have a lot of traveling. If you will have a lot of traveling the day of or a full church service, you might need additional coverage. You can always add on additional coverage a la carte as we get closer to the big day and I have a better idea of your overall wedding day timeline.

frequently Asked Questions

I'm based in Virginia Beach, VA and serve Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, Richmond, Charlottesville & Beyond.


I typically book weddings 15- months in advanced. To guarantee a wedding date, it’s always best to inquire once you know your wedding date & venue.


Yes, I'm fully insured and I would be happy to provide your wedding venue or your engagement session location with a copy of my insurance!


All 2nd shooters are hand selected by me. They are all working professional photographers in my photography community with similar shooting styles, level of shooting experience, gear and whom I know very well.

WHO IS YOUR SECOND photographer?

I’m a CANON girl! I use only full frame professional Canon bodies along with professional quality L lenses. (2) EOS R6, EOS 1v, Pentax 645N, 70-200mm, 135mm, 100mm Macro, 85mm, 50mm, 35mm, 24mm. (5) 600EX-RT Speedlight Flashes.


While I don't have an exact magic number, on average I deliver about 120 images per hour of shooting and you can expect about 1,000-1,500 images in your wedding gallery and 200 for your engagement gallery.


You will be granted full-printing rights with your images with your online gallery and you can print them anywhere, as many times as you’d wish, and share your images with whoever you would like. The full copyright does remain with me, meaning, you cannot submit or sell your images for publication without my permission and knowledge.

Who holds the copyright?

Yes I duplicate a handful of images into black and white. Sometimes for aesthetic reasons, if your church has very harsh overhead lighting, the DJ/venue has weird color casting lights or flashing spot lights I will deliver certain images into black and white in light of those situations.


No can do sorry! You're paying me to produce art, and editing is half of that job! I only deliver images that are fully custom edited in High Resolution JPEG.

She kept the day on schedule and coordinated with each of our vendors before and during the wedding to ensure everything went smoothly.

She guided us through our poses until we felt comfortable and at ease. We knew the day of would be no different! When we saw Christy at our wedding, it was like seeing an old friend.
