Nicole Gesmondi, photographer

Hey there, I’m Nicole. For over a decade I’ve had the incredible privilege of using my degree in fine art photography to create art out of life’s happiest moments and turn that passion into a thriving business. I love building relationships with my clients and becoming part of their lives, returning to capture every incredible milestone as their families grow.

When I’m not behind the lens in our studio or shooting on location, you’ll find me photographing abandoned buildings, creating abstract art through vintage cameras and expired film, or spending time at the Bonnet Shores Beach Club with my kids and my husband (the hottie below).


Paul is not only my husband and partner in crime, but he’s also my teammate and second shooter for engagements and weddings. Paul’s love for the technical side of photography is an incredible asset in capturing the perfect shot, and he’s developed quite the knack for tying bow ties, pinning boutonnieres, and calming the nerves of restless Grooms.

Paul and I met through MySpace (2005’s hottest social platform) and got married in July of 2013. We have a beautiful blended family and absolutely adore our kids: Amber, Alex, and Trey. We love traveling the world, hosting cocktail parties, and cozying up to watch The Office or Twin Peaks.

Whether we’re at home or behind the camera, we make the perfect team. We believe that love is love and welcome any couple through our doors. Above all else, we aim to create works of art that preserve your memories for generations.

We understand the whirlwind that comes with preparing for any photoshoot – be it the excitement of wedding planning or the chaos of orchestrating a family portrait. Our mission is to take the pressure off.
