A small intro to our own love story.

We met while working at a kid’s summer camp in the Sierra Nevada Mountains

in 2000. (Shout out to Camp Tawonga!) Both coming from photography backgrounds, we immediately bonded over our shared love of capturing the world around us.

After later marrying in Yosemite National Park, we discovered that wedding photography could be a great fit for us. We started our business in 2006 and never looked back. We feel so fortunate to work together, doing what we love. We would love to tell the story of your wedding day through our lens.

"Our wedding photographs exceeded my expectations, and they were pretty high! I treasure every photo and am transported back to the beauty and emotion of our event every time I view our portfolio. Their photographs embody an intimacy, a tenderness, and a depth that hint at an underlying story. Their images are powerful and personal. They listen, are responsive, and deliver top quality on time. Thank you, Jennifer & CJ, for capturing the magic and love of our special day!!"

"Besides choosing to marry my husband, working with Jennifer and CJ Nichols as our photographers was the best choice we made for our wedding. They are professional, warm, attentive, and - most importantly - they take incredible photos! I was very grateful we also chose to work with Jennifer for our engagement photos. It was a wonderful chance to get to know her and made me feel more excited and comfortable going into the day. I seriously cannot imagine a better photography experience overall!"

- Lizzie & Jon

"The Nichols were absolutely fantastic and I will forever recommend them to engaged friends. Their photos are gorgeous, clean, and timeless. Everyone we showed our album to has raved about the photos. Not only are the photos stunning, they make you so comfortable in front of the camera, seamlessly fit in with guests and bridal parties on the big day, and are very responsive and accommodating through the planning process. We were so impressed with the final product. We are so thankful for them!!"
