Barbados Crane Resort| Wedding

Shot at the historic Crane Beach, and Crane Resort. Featured on Destinations Weddings I DO.

It all started with our engagement photos and from then on we have used Nicole for everything: boudoir, destination wedding in Barbados, family session, and soon again for our little one’s 1 year session! For us…professional photography is not in our comfort zone and yet Nicole made us feel comfortable through every step of our interactions with her. She is amazingly talented yet humble, professional and fun, punctual, and everything a couple would need and expect for their big day. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer. Her photography is more than a generic session and her artistry is evident in every photo she creates!!!”  -Erica

Ritz Carlton- Laguna Niguel Wedding

This is a Glamorous wedding set on the cliffs of the pacific coast.

Nicole Caldwell is a wonderful photographer: professional, flexible, and talented. She was easy to work with, understanding of the types of pictures we wanted and most importantly, delivered an amazing finished product. My husband and I worked with Nicole for an engagement session as well as on our wedding day. When I told her our idea of having our engagement pictures done in a dry lake bed outside of Las Vegas, she was more than accommodating and trekked along with us on some unpaved roads to reach the perfect spot. For our wedding, she delivered nothing less than excellent service. We explained to her that we are not photogenic and are uncomfortable in front of the camera. She was able to capture more natural photos of us throughout the day without making us uncomfortable. We are incredibly happy with our decision to work with Nicole and recommend her services without reservation!”

And when you add a beautiful couple, a gorgeous strapless wedding gown, and luxurious wedding decor, there are literally no words! Rojan and Amir tied the knot at the stunning SURF AND SAND RESORT in Laguna Beach, California. Their ocean-facing ceremony took place on the resort’s outdoor patio, which was lavishly decorated with flowers, candles and Persian-inspired wedding decor. Their color palette was simple, yet beautiful- with white, creams and light pinks. There are so many gorgeous details to love in this wedding- see our favorite moments captured by the talented NICOLE CALDWELL STUDIO:
