Across two full days we will explore owning a successful photography business, and how to achieve the things you want. 

I'm shooting my dream weddings every week, and I want to share everything that got me here. 

Perfectly timed so you've got the winter months to put everything you learn into practise in time for the 2024-25 wedding season.

It's your turn to show up, tick off your goals, exceed your financial targets, and take everything to the next level. 

I'm so excited to bring this to you, and I can't wait for you to join me.


Level up your business and tick off your goals


What they're

01 / 03

We loved working with Nicole right from the get go. We appreciated her attention to details from our very first meet and felt our needs were well looked after, even for the crazy idea of a mini roadie to get our engagement shoot done, she took on the adventure like a champ. Still addicted to Stranger Things after that, thanks :)
When it came to our wedding day, we already had a solid plan of Nicole’s involvement and she slipped into our day seamlessly and professionally. The absolute highlight of course though, is the photos she has sent us! They are of such high quality, a perfect balance between candid and proper. I love as much the lighting and colour of the photos, as the variety of moments she captured.
I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone. She is worth every dollar!

Nicole was so lovely and really listened to the vibe we wanted and worked with us to recreate that. She had such great ideas and we loved our photos so so much! Nicole made us feel comfortable in front of the camera even though we were so awkward. We also got same day sneak peeks!!! It was a great experience working with Nicole.

Nicole was an absolute gem! We were instantly impressed with her professionalism and ability to visualise what we wanted, when we were unsure ourselves.

In the wedding lead up and on the day Nicole brought sense of calmness and order. I was so impressed with her efforts to learn all our families name and patience in dealing with our crowd.

Then when the photos arrived we had a whole new appreciation for her work. The photos were simply amazing, she had captured so much and in the most perfect way. Her ongoing comms with us while we sorted albums ect was always spot all.

Anyone would be fortunate to have Nicole capture and be a part of their event

When we moved cities three years ago I had to start fresh. Now I'm shooting weddings I've only dreamed about in the past. This can be your reality too and I'll show you how. 

Making editing as pain-free, quick and easy as possible. Should you be outsourcing some tasks to get time back in your life? Do you need new software? Learn how I make editing and admin work for me. 

It's all about giving. Give, give, and give some more. Serve your clients and give them the perfect experience. I love my clients and I love giving them the best wedding experience. I can't wait to serve you, and treat you, during this workshop.

How to get up every morning and hustle for your goals. I'll share the ways I stay motivated, what sort of education I invest in, and things you can do every day to climb the ladder.

Your website, your attitude, your ads, and how to covert your inquiries into clients, plus how to price yourself to be profitable and keep it affordable for your clients.

From creating a mood board for a styled shoot, to getting vendors on your side, to shooting images that level up your portfolio and bring in your dream clients.

We've all got bills to pay, and a lifestyle we want to live. Let's bring in that cash so you can live this self-employed life of freedom.

NEED A WHO is this for section, what's different from last year, and what we'll be covering


FINDING your dream clients


editing and time management




showing up endlessly

I'm putting together a styled wedding shoot, and you'll be shooting it! Take advantage of this opportunity to get some insane images!

I'll shoot with the same couple to begin with, so you can see how I work.


Let's shoot!

You know when you really gel with a client? Imagine if every couple who booked you were your sort of people. I love hanging out with every one of my clients. This is all about how to find them.

Do you ever run out of ideas? Let's brainstorm, and I'll give you plenty of directions to take to your next shoot. 

Websites are so hard to get your head around! We'll talk about what you need to have on there, how to make it fast and functional, and the platforms I use for my site.


Posing couples





I've been in this game a long time and I still shoot for free sometimes, I still put my hand up for referrals from other photographers, and I still second shoot when I can. Everything is a chance to learn and grow and make my business even better.


When to shoot for free


Let's Share a meal

I love food, and I love sharing a meal with friends. I'm going to book a table at a delicious restaurant in the city on Monday night for those who would like to join me. 


The Mayfair Hotel are offering you 10% off their beautiful rooms, with breakfast available onsite.

I'm Nicole (she/her) and I spend my free time with my family - my husband and our 5-year-old daughter Zoe. We enjoy lunching and brunching (food is my thing!), walking up the Port Hills, and family time in our home. 

Before I began photographing weddings I spent years working as a photojournalist and it taught me a lot about storytelling.

Central Otago is my happy place, and I happily travel to other parts of Aotearoa to explore. 

I've been shooting weddings for 9 years now and I love it more every season.

Oh hello!
