Nicole Sarah Welcomes Two Associates To Her Team!
You may have remembered a few years ago when I expanded into a studio. I guess I never made a truly formal announcement and having been so busy with work, weddings and a toddler running circles around me – I’ve only just finalized the website to introduce our team members! You might be wondering why I made this decision.
Becoming so busy that you have to turn away couples is not a bad problem to have, however it emotionally took a toll on me as well. We pride ourselves on offering only the best experience from booking through to your wedding and beyond, and part of that is eliminating a lot of questions and stress for couples. I hated that I wasn’t able to offer a bride and groom the opportunity at having not only beautiful images, but a great, memorable experience.
While I was pregnant with my daughter, I met Richelle through the recommendation of one of my amazing peers in the industry. Richelle shot with me almost exclusively throughout my pregnancy. In the process, I got to know her. I felt confident in her abilities to replicate my style and not only that – her personality is amazing. I knew that she would be the perfect representation of my brand and exemplify the Nicole Sarah Photography experience.
Once dates with Richelle started to fill up, I knew I needed to round out my team a little further! The second I met Tess it was absolutely a no – brainer decision. As with Richelle she embodies everything that we offer in our experience and is absolutely a phenomenal photographer.
When a couple inquires with us, I let them know immediately if it is myself or one of my lovely associates available to capture their date. In order to offer only the highest calibre experience, I also work with my associates in planning your itinerary with you and I edit the final images in house myself as well. The results have been amazing and I am so thrilled that we have had extremely happy clients and that I’ve been able to collaborate with these fantastic women and artists! I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Richelle has been an associate with us for over 3.5 years. She’s drawn to photography as it’s the perfect balance of technical skill and creativity for her. Richelle believes an ideal image captures the convergence of light, emotion and composition. Her goal is to explore the dynamics of natural light and build an image that visually describes the connection between a couple. Capturing beautiful moments that preserve the memories of your wedding day is something that she truly cares about. She always appreciates the people she meets, the places she visits and the uniqueness of every wedding she shoots. Richelle LOVES coffee, puppies and naps!
Tess joined us an an associate in 2018! She is a globe trotter and has photographed all over North America, including California, and Mexico, Dubai + Hawaii. She’s a social butterfly who enjoys getting to know people and highlighting their personalities in the images she captures. She sees the world with a raw perspective, full of emotion and colour. Not everything is posed and perfect, and she LOVES that! She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, her sweet man Garrett, their cat Maya, and dog Pistachio. She also loves goooooooood coffee, painting, exploring local restaurants, long drives, travelling, mentoring fellow photographers, and cooking with her grandparents!
