About me - jessicanicholsphotography

Hi, I'm Jess. Lover of backyard gardening, storage solutions and anything involving Nutella. I am a mother of two smart, gorgeous and wildly crazy girls. I am the married to my high school sweetheart and best friend. And I have a English staffy pup, who chews everything in sight and is overly affectionate. I also have my 18yr old sister/best mate living with us, she keeps me sane by listening to me complain and by occasionally washing the dishes... Sounds like a bit of a hectic household? Yeah it is sometimes. But that's why I love it!

I also love photography. I have wanted to be a photographer for as long I can remember. I was never totally sure of what type I wanted to be though... A marine photographer, a forensic photographer or a national geographic photography (I collected all the yellow books). In highschool everyone asks "What do you want to do?", "What do you want to be?". Telling the teachers that I wanted to be a photographer wasn't what they wanted to hear. According to them it was more of a hobby. So I accepted that and did a Cert 3 in business to keep them happy, knowing that one day I could use that knowledge to start my own photography business. No one was going to tell me my dream job was a hobby.

I didn't start my business till 2013, after having both my girls and getting married. It was finally time for me to start thinking about myself again. With the support of my family and friends I have been able to slowly build my business into something that still blows me away. Each year the client list grows and I travel further and further for weddings. I LOVE weddings. I have always been a very selfless person, I am very generous, sometimes too generous. I am fully committed to a couple who has hired me for their big day. I will help decorate, fix your dress, calm your nerves and be the person who keeps everyone on time. I want to know everything about you, I wanna meet with you a few times before the big day. I really want a sense of who you guys are! How else will I capture your personalities and love for each other on the day?

Every year just gets better, and I cant wait to see what the future brings.

Jess.
