a story in photographs


Amy Nicole, Photographer

I'm a professional photographer based in Northern California for nearly 20 years. I am based in the Greater Sacramento area and Bay Area. I have frequent travel to Oahu as well as many trips around the world. I specialize in portraits and anything that involves documenting a story. I would describe my photography style as natural, candid, fun, romantic and real. It is my passion to photograph people and tell their story.


-my background

I learned to photograph on a 35mm Pentax shooting black and white film. I spent years in the darkroom learning 35mm, medium and large format film, color film processing and slide film. I've worked as a photojournalist, an editor, a freelance commercial assistant and a wedding photographer assistant before beginning my own career as a wedding and portrait photographer. I managed and trained a staff of photographers for the first half of my career at a studio that photographed nearly 200 weddings a year. About ten years ago, I started what is now Amy Nicole Photography. I've expanded my wedding and portrait business to include business portraits and events. I also continue to work on my own personal travel projects and documentary work.


-volunteer and charity work

I photograph for a local non-profit in Sacramento as well as provide my time for various other events. Please inquire if you have a cause you would like to share with me.
