My husband Eli (fiance at the time) and myself contacted Nicole Modde of NC Photography about year and two months before our wedding. She wasn’t the first photographer we had looked at, but she was the first photographer we contacted and we had a lot of questions. Nicole patiently answered our questions and quelled some of our fears of not being photogenic. She responded to our e-mails quickly and precisely which is very helpful when planning a wedding. We found NC Photography’s prices to be at the top end of the photographers we looked at; but the quality was also at the top, so we decided, what better way to preserve our wedding memories than with the best! Before the wedding, Nicole came to our house to meet my husband and I and we discussed details, time lines, picture styles and any last burning questions. The day of the wedding Nicole and her husband Shawn, our second shooter, came to the our house to shoot the ladies getting ready, and then Shawn headed over to the guys hotel to capture them getting ready. Nicole recommended having a second shooter as sometimes things happen and one camera may not be able to catch that perfect shot, but if you have a second shooter you have twice the chance to capture those special, one of a kind moments that make you laugh, cry and bring you back. It was worth every penny to have Shawn there and he captured some amazing photos for us! For the formal photos, Nicole and Shawn, as their own husband and wife duo, made us newlyweds feel at ease as they encouraged us to be in our moment and our love for each other would make the pictures- photogenic or not, and they, of course, were right! In total, Nicole and Shawn spent 11 hours with us on our wedding day and I am so thankful that we made the decision to have them there capturing our memories- we will cherish our photos for the rest of our lives.
