Colorado Wedding Photographer

Nicole Denae Photography

Storyteller for the adventurous and madly in love.

Hi!! I’m Nicole! I’m a Denver based photographer, and I’ve been doing this photography thing for over 8 years! I’m a Colorado native who loves getting to adventure all over the Rockies and everywhere in between with the coolest people ever — aka the best job in the world!

I believe that you deserve an authentic experience custom built to cater your photography wants and needs of your wedding day, which is why I have put together exactly that. Your wedding photos will probably be the only tangible thing that you have to remember your wedding day decades from now, and I believe that there is an intangible value within that fact. When you book me as your wedding photographer, you aren’t just investing in me, but you’re investing in yourself and your love story.

Love Notes

“Nicole is so wonderful to work with, can’t recommend her enough for wedding photography. She is an incredible artist and equally incredible business owner. From the first time we reached out to inquire about booking with her, she was quick and enthusiastic with communication. My husband and I didn’t meet Nicole in person until the wedding day, but through our phone calls and emails I knew she’d be a calm and easy-going person on the big day, and she absolutely was. She is very organized and so helpful with creating a timeline to keep the wedding day running smoothly (she definitely thought of details I never would have thought about). She also was kind enough to step in to help my mom with things that were totally above-and-beyond, like steaming and bustling my dress. With extended family and the bridal party she kept things moving very efficiently since she knew it was our priority to spend time with our guests and get to our cocktail hour. She was also so respectful of our wishes and priorities throughout the day. And WOW the photos are stunning. I already knew I liked her editing style but seeing our own photos is even better than I expected. She got such incredible shots (even with some restrictions within our venue). I’d recommend Nicole Denae Photography to anyone – she’s incredible!”


“Nicole is INCREDIBLE. If you are looking for an amazing photographer who truly wants to capture you and your partner’s love, authenticity, and personalities, she is your girl. We had a virtual meeting to meet her and learn about her process and we fell in love with her within the first minute because of her infectious personality. And it only grew when we realized how professional she was as well! She provided us with guides about what to expect, what to wear which were so helpful! Her approach to capture moments in a natural way is what initially drew us to her. While we were taking our engagement photos she gave incredible direction, had us laughing, and made the entire experience fun and not awkward at all. She was even able to capture amazing shots with our dog too! Not an easy task when the pup is squirming. We are so grateful we found her and cannot wait for her to capture our wedding in September!”


“Nicole was an absolute joy to work with. From the very beginning of the process and initial contact, it is clear that her priority is YOU! Her shoot options are endless including locations, possible add ons and props, and even down to the number of different spots she shoots in one location. She provides everything necessary to make the experience one of a kind, memorable, and seamless. She captured our love so beautifully, in so many different ways, and so effortlessly. The shoot was an absolute blast with tons of posing guidance and encouragement! Nicole really thinks of everything and it is clear she prioritizes the relationships she has with her clients above all else. From a detailed survey getting to know us individually and as a couple, to playing my boyfriend and I’s favorite song as we danced in the rain and she captured photos. The little details are spot on and I cannot wait to work with her in the future!”


Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

I personally view my style as a mix between the light and airy and the dark and moody styles of photography. I strive to have a style that is unique, romantic, and timeless. I capture the authenticity, and the real and the raw emotions of the big moments, as well as all the moments in between!

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

I love to work with couples who like to have fun! I love it when couples truly love to go on adventures, and are genuinely, hopelessly, madly in love.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

I always wanted to be a wedding photographer from the start! I started by second shooting at weddings for friends, and after my first wedding, I was in love! I have been in the wedding industry now for over 3 years!

Where do you find your design inspiration?

For me, my inspiration comes from all the amazing couples that I get to meet all year round! I get to capture so many authentic moments, and emotions in a wedding day. I love that I get to capture memories for you and your loved ones for decades to come!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

Yes! I travel all over the state for clients, but I do charge travel fees! I also travel out of state for weddings too.

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

I love everything about weddings, but my favorite part would have to be when the bride and groom see each other for the first time, whether that be during a first look, or when walking down the aisle.
