Engagements & Couples – FAQs

How would you describe your style?
If I had to put it in 3 words it would be: Rebellious ~ Romantic ~ Free Spirited

I want to capture this important time in your life with a fun photo shoot that shows off your own unique style and personality.  I’ve also been told my style is quite diverse, as not only do I like to capture the creative shots, but the candid silly moments, and the beautiful smiles of my clients as well.  To get the best idea of my style check out a wide sample of engagement sessions on my blog. 

Where do you do your sessions?
75% of my photo shoots take place on-location in the Denver metro region.  I love to travel as well, so I can also make a full day of it and drive up to the mountains or anywhere in Colorado for a photo shoot.  And I quickly fill up my calendar with portraits sessions when traveling back home to New Orleans.  I can recommend a wide selection of locations from parks to downtown urban landscapes.  And I also love to try out new locations, so if you have a unique idea for a photo shoot please let me know.

Can you explain in more detail how your sessions work?

BEFORE THE SHOOT: All photo sessions include a Design Consultation which is a brief meeting done either in person or remotely.  At this time we will go over all the details as well as decide on a location, date, clothing, and other options that will work best for your photography needs.  I can also do your design consultation complimentary before you even book, that way you can be sure you feel comfortable with me and my services before committing to anything.   

DURING THE SHOOT: For your photo session we will meet at the agreed upon time and place.  Most photo shoots run 1-2 hours.  It will be a fun experience that will feel more like a unique date then a photo shoot.  

AFTER THE SHOOT: We will schedule a time for you to do your Image Unveiling 1-2 weeks after your photo shoot.  This is the exciting part that you’ve been waiting for where you get to see all of your edited images! I’ll help you narrow down your favorite pictures for your order and figure out what products will show them off the best. 


Do you retouch the images?
Yes, moderate retouching such as blemish removal, teeth whitening, and color toning are included on all of your ordered images.   Additional retouching can be requested for an additional fee.

So how much does a photo session cost?
We have a few different packages to choose from depending on the type of session and the location of your photo shoot, starting at $275.   For full details please call us at 720-470-9849 or send us an email at nicolenicholsphoto at gmail.com, let us know what type of photo shoot you  are interested in doing and if you have any preferred locations or dates and we will send you more information along with a current price lists.

What type of products do you offer?
Most people choose one of the memory books or guest books which they can have their friends and family sign on their wedding day (so much better then the old-school traditional way of signing on a line).  We also have many other products such as canvas & metal wall art, save the dates, photo boxes, fine art prints, and even a music video!  We will review all of these options during your Design Consultation but you do not have to make any decisions until you see the images during your Image Unveiling.  And you are never obligated to purchase anything else.

Can I get the digital files?
We have different options available for digital files depending on if you are looking for the low resolution copies to share online (such as on your Facebook page), or the high resolution digital files to do your printing elsewhere.  Most people prefer to have us handle all the printing as we can guarantee professional high quality products with full retouching.  However we want you to be able to share your images online so we do offer complimentary digital copies of all the images you order, and a print release of either individual digital files or a collection of digital images is always an option as well.  

How far in advance do I need to book?
If you have a specific date you need your pictures for please let us know when booking.  Keep in mind that we prefer to meet with everyone first during a Design Consultation to make sure all your questions are answered before your photo shoot.  We can typically get you in for a Design Consultation within 48hrs, schedule the shoot for 3-10 days out, meet up one week later for your Image Unveiling, and then can have your final order ready within 1- 4 weeks, depending on what you order.  A lot of it depends on how busy we are and how flexible your schedule is, but it is typically anywhere from 3-6 weeks to have everything complete from the time you first contact us.  If you are one of those that like to wait till the last minute and are afraid it’s already too late please contact us before writing it off.  We have been known to perform miracles.

All right, no more procrastinating, I’m ready to do this!  How do I schedule a session?
Click on the “Contact” button in the menu above or call Nicole at 720-470-9849 or email nicolenicholsphoto at gmail.com to schedule your complimentary design consultation.   We will make sure all your questions and concerns are answered and get you scheduled for your photo shoot!

Emma Paris - Hi Nicole!
I came across your photos on instagram. By husband and I have been wanting to take couples photos for a while now. We are pregnant with our first baby and want to make it a tradition each year to take family photos. We live in Colorado. I saw the pictures you did with a couple in South Valley Park. I love how you were able to capture some of the scenery behind the couple. I thought this would be perfect for us. What is your price for a 1 hr session? What is your availability in the next few weeks?
I am excited to hear back from you and hope we get a chance to work together.
