I'm a wedding + portrait photographer based out of good ole Southern Maryland, just 40 minutes south of DC. I've been kickin' it at this whole photography thing for almost 6 years and I still get excited to take photos whether for clients or personally. I love what I do! Well, except tax day, am I right? I photograph people for a living and its 100% the coolest job on the planet. For the last 4 years I've been trottin' around the globe trying to experience as much diversity and natural beauty that I can before I hit 30...which was last October. AH.
My approach is all about having fun and making people do weird things - which are actually super adorable. I'm your girl if you want to feel extra comfy in front of the camera and have a good time while doing it.
My husband and I were so lucky to find Candace after our friends booked her as their wedding photographer. As members of a wedding party and bride and groom, we enjoyed working with Candace in multiple settings and hope to share future milestones with her. Booking Candace as a photographer was more like making a friend. She is caring and kind, eager to capture some of your most precious moments. Candace is a talented professional and worked collaboratively with my husband and I from the moment we booked her for our wedding through, receiving our finished album. By following her through social media, we know that Candace also engages in professional development to challenge herself as a photographer, illustrating her dedication and passion for her work. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Candace Nicole Photography to friends and family!

Candace is the absolute best! She takes our family photos, and I honestly wouldn’t go to anyone else for them. She gets my kids to smile and focus on the pictures. She even makes it enjoyable for me and I’m not the biggest fan of pictures either. Plus she gets the edited images back to us very quickly. No one I’d rather work with!

I could not imagine having anyone else to take my pictures for me! The pictures turned out just like the dream in my head. She was able to capture so much of my wedding even the little details that I didn't think could look so pretty. I wish I could print each image out and hang them all over!!! Candace is also the sweetest person ever, which makes it super easy to feel comfortable when taking pictures. If any other photography needs, I will FOR SURE use Candace!

Candace is so amazing!! My husband and I have used her for several different times in our lives. She has photographed us for engagement pictures, our wedding, and multiple times with our son. Even when you have a toddler who only wants to run around, Candace gets AMAZING shots and surprises you!! She really makes you feel comfortable and relaxed from a nervous bride to an anxious new mom, she makes you feel at ease to capture those pure and loving moments! If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would! Candace all the way and you won’t go wrong!!

I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Candace for any photography need! She made our wedding day so easy & I am so pumped about the photos we get to see everyday hanging up to remember that special day! (& the magazine cover we are on thanks to her amazing skills!) Candace is so sweet and very funny, she made our engagement photos so chill and fun when we thought we were awkward, she rocked it and even our pup became a ham bone while she was taking our pictures! Anyone who asked about wedding vendors.. Candace is my first suggestion! Her being our photographer was the easiest decision! Actually it was the only decision I was sure I NEEDED at our wedding! Again, I can’t recommend Candace Nicole Photography enough! She’s the bees knees!
Thanks Candace!!!! We love you!!!!
