"My wife and I had used Nicole to announce our pregnancy during the crazy times of quarantine. We had seen a lot of our friends using her to do the fun 'porch pictures' and knew we had to have her come to our house and capture this special time for us. Upon meeting Nicole, she was so friendly and willing to incorporate our ideas of what we wanted to do and exceeded our expectations of what we had. 
She has a great eye for taking beautiful couple pictures and bringing fun into pictures - which can be hard to do if you’re not very comfortable in front of the camera.


Nicole does a great job getting that very natural look in a picture.Moving forward a few months, we knew we wanted to use Nicole again for our maternity photos. Nicole gave us multiple choices of places she has shot at before which were all beautiful and we chose a spot in Ojai. It was a very hot day in Ojai and Nicole showed up just as excited as we were to get these pictures. Nicole chose an excellent time to start shooting because the light was amazing. She helped us get into beautiful poses and especially the single shots of my wife while being 8 months pregnant. Even during the shoot, Nicole would take a picture with her cell phone to show us, as well as give us previews on her camera. 

After the shoot, Nicole had sneak peeks of our session within a day, and just a couple of days later she had the entire shoot done! I am extremely happy that we discovered Nicole and would recommend her to anyone who is looking to get any photos taken. We look forward to using her again for newborn photos! Thank you Nicole!" 



"Nicole is heads and shoulders above the rest! I was extremely impressed with her professionalism and highly developed photography skills.  Nicole is so genuine and friendly that my twins immediately felt very at ease and comfortable with her.  We were amazed by her ability to find the perfect spot and pose for the girls.  The photos are just what we had hoped for!  Nicole is a rare find and she will always be our first choice for photography.  She will not disappoint you!"



"Wow!!! What an amazing experience my daughter had during her senior photo shoot with Nicole. She was patient, encouraging and creative. Nicole showed us many location options and was thrilled to share each with us! Nicole’s photographs capture Morgan’s true authentic self and we are excited to share them with our friends and family! I would highly recommend Nicole for capturing your most precious memories."



"We were lucky to have had Nicole shoot our maternity session. She helped us feel at ease and made the whole experience fun and relaxing. She is amazingly talented and was very receptive to our ideas. We are thrilled with the final product and cannot wait for Nicole to capture some sweet photos of our new baby soon!"



"Nicole, who I’ve shot with many times, made my maternity shoot vision come to life. She always knows the best poses & guides you along through the shoot. She always makes you feel comfortable, and gets great shots even if you and your partner are awkward lol! She’s quick with getting the photos back to you & they are so amazing you’ll want to hang all of them in your home!"



"Nicole did an amazing job at my maternity shoot. I reached out to her because her work looked amazing and she did not disappoint. She helped me pick a location that exceeded my expectations. It was my first time getting professional photography done and she knew exactly how to help me pose and made the entire experience so comfortable and fun! Once I received the photos from our session I was amazed at how perfect they came out, I could have not asked for better photos to remember my pregnancy. She absolutely nailed my vision. I’ve been getting many compliments on my photos too! I can’t wait to work with Nicole again for more photo sessions in the future."



"Nicole did an amazing job! My fiancée and I were both nervous to have our photos taken but she made it so relaxing and fun and helped angle us for the perfect shots and even played music to help us loosen up! If you are looking to have your photos taken just for the fun of it or a special occasion I highly recommend hiring Nicole!" 



"I had the privilege of winning a 1 hour photo session with Nicole.  She was so generous to offer and donate a raffle item for The Ojai’s Young Professional Network’s Adopt a Family event in December 2019.  I had been following her work since she started through friends and social media - always admiring her photography.  Nicole was very professional from the moment I reached out and made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the photoshoot.  Managing a toddler and a dog is challenging in and of itself and Nicole was so understanding, allowed me to feel relaxed while being helpful with wrangling each of them.  During the photoshoot she made it seem so effortless, easy and fun!  When I received the images I was so overwhelmed with how much I loved each and every one.  I am so thankful to Nicole for capturing these precious moments that I will cherish deeply.   I would not hesitate to refer her and can't wait to set up our next photoshoot."  



"Nicole was amazing to work with from start to finish! She was professional, yet friendly, and directed us perfectly during the shoot. She was flexible for rescheduling when it rained on the day we initially scheduled. Nicole made  my first maternity photo shoot dreams come to reality. She was super open to my ideas and was able to guide us to the perfect location, time of day, and poses during the shoot. Nicole edited and sent us a link to our pictures very quickly. I was stunned at how beautiful every shot was!! She is truly talented at her craft! I would highly recommend using Nicole for any of your photography requests."



"I have been so lucky to use Nicole for a couple photo sessions. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she makes the experience so fluid, fun, and calm. I am so impressed and happy with the results. I would highly recommend her." 



"My fiancé and I had Nicole take our engagement photos a few weeks ago and we couldn’t have been happier with her incredible professionalism and the quality of the photographs she created. Nicole made us feel very comfortable and made the whole experience something we will never forget. We highly recommend Nicole and hope we can work with her again!"



"Nicole was amazing to work with from beginning to end. She helped us select the perfect location for our daughters graduation photos based on want she wanted and made Katherine feel comfortable and relaxed through the whole photo shoot! Nicole is a joy to work with, professional and has a great eye for details."



"Besides always being on time, creative, and patient! Nicole makes us look so good!! Always a fun time and wouldn’t have anyone else take our friends and family photos"



"We love using Nicole Wise Photography! She has been doing our photos since our first child was born and now as a family of two kids it isn’t easy to get them both settled. Nicole knows how to work her magic and captures the best photos of our family. She always has great ideas and picks the most beautiful locations to shoot at. I highly recommend Nicole Wise Photography. She is one of the sweetest gems around!"



"Nicole made the whole photography experience so comfortable. She was wonderful to work with. She is professional and organized. Her pictures are wonderful and she captures the personality and the essence of those she is photographing. The lighting is beautiful, the settings are authentic. I would highly recommend Nicole for your photography needs!"



"I had such a good experience taking photos with Nicole! We did a photoshoot with 9 moms and 9 babies and Nicole handled it like a true professional! She helped me and my husband feel comfortable during the individual photos and gave us cues on what to do so we weren’t just posing. When we received the images we were blown away! She is so amazing at what she does and I would highly recommend hiring her as your photographer!"
