Belinda - Wedding Portraits

"We absolutely love the photos that Nicole took for us. The shoot was so much fun and we had such a fun time. Nicole was great to work with and captured some amazing moments that we will keep forever. She was very creative and open, we met in the Arts District downtown and she instantly found great places for us to photograph. Nicole was able to catch us in our element, we can really see our love for each other in each photo. We have been so excited to print and frame these photos, every time we look at them it puts a smile on our faces. Thanks to Nicole we will have beautiful photos to help remember a wonderful day."

Deborah Maravilla - Anniversary Session

“I don't even know where to begin with this review! Nicole is amazing and words can't describe how amazing she is but her photos certainly do. I found her through Instagram as I was searching for a photographer to take my husband and I's photos to celebrate our one year anniversary. I had come across many other photographers and while I liked their photos that I saw I wasn't in love with them. When I found Nicole's page and just scrolling through the pictures wow I had fallen head over heels at the way she captured every single photo. It just showed such warmth and the love just radiates off the couples she took pictures for. I knew she was the one I wanted and I booked her. She's very down-to-earth and dealt with all my questions and changes of plan, which I'm sorry Nicole! LOL. She kept in communication giving us tips on what to wear, if we wanted to bring accessories as well, and just about anything else she was there for me. The day of the photo session came and she was just the same bubbly person you get when you read her biography on her website. Our round of photos was quick but in the time we had with her, I felt so comfortable as well as my husband, and we just all bonded. Once receiving the photos I was speechless. The photos were perfect in every way and just what I wanted. Her dedication and passion are seen through her photography and you won't be disappointed. We are grateful for her and her skills! She's definitely a keeper for photography.”

Katie North - Engagement Session

“My fiancé and I did a photoshoot with Nicole De Anda in Joshua Tree the day after our engagement and she was amazing! She is really nice and encouraging and beautifully captured our love. It was both of our first time doing a photoshoot and she directed us and made us feel comfortable the entire time. The pictures turned out really beautiful and she made sure that we had all the shots we wanted before we finished. She also woke up before dawn to meet us all the way out in Joshua Tree for sunrise - such dedication!! We definitely recommend Nicole for any photography needs you may have!”

Amber Sanchez - Maternity Session

"We were looking for someone to take our maternity photos for our baby girl and I came across Nicole as she was at the Social Media Sunday in Whittier event. From the second I approached her she was personable, she informed me of her packages and prices, and from then I went on to look at her portfolio. She had done many different events, which made me comfortable with selecting her as someone to take our photos. We had scheduled to meet up and do to the inclement weather we rescheduled and Nicole was EXTREMELY accommodating. She offered alternative options and allowed us to do what we wanted to do, customer service, A+! The day of the photo shoot was an hour that flew by! We had so much fun posing, and Nicole was able to shake a few good poses out of us with her silly remarks. She allowed us a few minutes at the end to decide if there were any poses that we wanted, and we had lots of fun with those too. The best part was she was able to turn around some of the photos to us within an hour, and the rest only a couple of days later! I was extremely impressed with how fast she was able to get them to us and her quality of work! We're using her for our next family shoot! Thank you Nicole, I cannot wait to hang these photos in our home!"

Chris and Jen Capinia - Engagement Session

“Jen and I want to thank you for the experience that we had with you as our photographer.
We were both so nervous and hesitant on the day of our photo shoot, but your energy quickly dissolved both of those feelings. The both us quickly felt comfortable and really enjoyed the time we spent with you (especially during Tommy’s.)
The photos came out beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Needless to say, you have a true gift.
That photo shoot ended up meaning more to us than just posing for the photographs that would be used to announce our engagement. Jen and I truly feel that we gained a genuine friend on top of a fun photography session. We cannot thank you enough for blessing us with your talents and we look forward to future sessions with you.

From the bottom of our hearts Thank you so much.”
