I've got to have a good connection with my couples. I never book any couple without first meeting with them over a hot zoom or facetime date. Making sure that we click is top priority because I want all of us to have has much fun as possible. I'm gonna be more than just another body in the room. I'm gonna be there to make sure you are on time, fluff your dress, to hold your train, to make sure the guys know how to put a boutonniere on, to make sure your hair is still on point, to make sure you all look absolutely FAB-U-LOUS, to be another one of the bffs and to be honest, I'm going to be there when you're butt naked and getting buttoned into your dress... do you really want me to be a boring stranger waiting for you to tell me when you're ready?
My goal is to make your wedding day one of the most fun and effortless days possible from the moment you meet with me to the time I start to design your handcrafted wedding album.
Having your photo taken can be a nerve wracking thing but it doesn't have to be. Trust me. Im not about all of the stiffness. You'll get the iconic, framed, smiling-at-the-camera portrait but I want you all entwined and I want your love to show, no, to be FELT through your photos. Lets frolic around fields + streets and have you two snuggle up and love each other.
You're lookin' for someone that'll capture the little + big moments but also make you laugh + feel good on and off camera too!
You're in the right place.
Once you shoot me an email, we can get the ball rolling! I'll send you my pricing guide and a questionnaire that will help me stalk you a little easier ;) Joking aside, the questionnaire will let me know more about the two of you and what your love is all about. The how it all started and the proposal. This just helps me get to know you two better

Once I have read over your questionnaire and I make sure that I am available for your wedding date, we will go ahead and set up a chat over facetime/zoom. If we don't feel like we're about to be BFF's and have a good time celebrating then we aren't going to be a good mix. Always best to make sure before we make things official.

Welcome to the fam-bam! Once we finalize the contract + retainer, we can sit back and relax, maybe dance a little bit because your date will be saved on my calendar! It is a complete honor and something I will not take lightly. I can't wait to CELEBRATE!

Engagements are super important. This is where I break you out of your shell and get you two moving and enjoying each other. Im just going to be that creepy third wheel taking pictures of you while you hang out and do all the weird things I prompt you to do. It'll be awkward AF but it'll be fun!

As we get closer to the big day, I will reach out to check in + start talking timeline. I'm always eager to help with the timeline build so that we can be sure that you are left with a stress-free day catered to you. I even send you sample timelines to help make certain things a bit easier when planning.

Finally! The day is here! I will be there every step of the way helping to make sure things run extra smooth for you. Ill fluff and tuck and serenade you while making sure you guys are looking your absolute best but most of all, I'll make sure we are all having one heck of a good time while we are at it!

After the day is over, I'll get to work on perfecting your images in post. You'll receive a link to the gallery via email when everything is complete and ready to be downloaded! USB's can be purchased from my a la carte menu if you want a tangible item to store them on as well.

Following the galley delivery, you will receive your album design (if you ordered one. Albums can be purchased from my a la carte menu). Once you receive your album design, we will finalize the design process + get your album sent to the lab so that we can get it in your hands!

"Shooting with Candace was a breeze. She is super friendly and makes you feel completely at ease. She had us laughing all day"
Weddings are friggin' magical. It's rare that I don't feel dang near all of the emotions throughout a wedding day. Laughs, happy tears, sad tears and all 4 of my chins make an appearance. But I love it all. My collections include two photographers + the option of a beautifully handcrafted album.
Engagements are vital to any wedding photography experience. We get to know each other better and get you both comfortable in front of the camera. Because these are so important, engagement sessions are included in all of my standard wedding collections.
ELOPEMENT + DESTINATION
Sometimes, a wedding with all of the extra fluff doesn't sound like your cup of tea and guess what, thats OK! You should focus on whats the most important thing on your wedding day, yourself and the one you are marrying.
"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!"
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!

Shooting with Candace was a breeze. She is super friendly and makes you feel completely at ease. She had us laughing all day and captured a great mixture of candids and posed photos. The photos are GORGEOUS and we have gotten so many compliments on her style, which I best describe as "light and airy." We have recommended her to everyone!
She books quickly so my advice is to hurry and book now!
