Blair Nicole Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! My name is Blair and I am a wedding and portrait photographer!
    I am based out of Southern California, but absolutely love to travel for weddings everywhere! I love becoming good friends with our clients; watching their love blossom, their families grow, capturing those fun and intimate moments in their life... and of course, having a blast doing it all along the way.

Edgewood Tahoe Wedding Photographer – Lissette and Justin are Married!

I’m sitting here and have absolutely no idea where to even start with Lissette and Justin’s PERFECT, rustic, Edgewood Tahoe Wedding. As if photographing their adorable duffy boat engagement session was not sweet enough, they asked me to photograph their lake side wedding in Lake Tahoe. I was pretty darn excited about it before, but once I got there and took in the beauty of Lake Tahoe, it was a whole new ball game!
We ended up making a little family work-cation out of it, and we stopped a couple fun places along the way (I will definitely have to do a separate post with some of my faves from the rest of the trip), but Tahoe was truly gorgeous! In fact, everything about their wedding was absolutely perfect. It was really intimate with mostly family and a couple close friends, lots of handmade DIY rustic details, the most beautiful views, and honestly…thee most in-love, adorable couple you have ever seen! Truly perfect, you guys!

Lissette and Justin, honestly from the bottom of my heart, thank you! Thank you for inviting me to photograph your perfect intimate wedding. And thank you for trusting me to photograph these treasured moments in your lives. Everything was absolutely perfect!

And to everyone else, I’m sorry this is the longest wedding “preview” post of all time. But how to you even narrow down this much beautiful?! (Answer: You just cant.)

So I spotted this dock (with those amazing mountains in the back ground), and about lost my mind. The most perfect little spot to finish up their portraits!Edgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe Wedding

Lissette and Justin met years ago while working at Disneyland. So they named their tables after the different stands they worked at together. So adorable!Edgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe WeddingEdgewood Lake Tahoe Wedding

Lissette is the Baker/Owner of Dolled Up Cakes (and the best around!), so of course she had to make the most perfect cake I’ve ever seen, for their big day!
I think she outdid herself with this amazing, rustic woodsy, red velvet naked cake! And of course it tasted amazing! (as usual!)

Our beautiful daughter and son in law, (Lissette and Justin) look great. Blair, you captured the moment, the images are stunning. You’re amazing, you’ve created a master piece with your camera.

Family trip to the San Diego Zoo!

My husband always reminds me that I need to blog more personal photos, and hes SO right! We do a lot of fun family things and sometimes I bring my “good camera”, but A LOT of the time all of the family pictures just end up on Instagram. But I am going to get MUCH better at posting the fun family stuff on here too, promise!;)

Not too long ago we took a little trip to the San Diego Zoo with my hubby’s parents (who we love to death!), and Jordan just LOVED every single animal (as usual)! It was so much fun! Here are a few of my favorites from the day!:)

Photo booth pictures are kinda our “family thing”. Sean and I have been taking them together since before we got married, and now the four of us squeeze into the booth whenever we come across one. We have an old sticky photo album that we keep our collection in, and its one of my favorite things ever!:)San Diego Zoo Photo Booth

Yay!! Love all the pictures! And love you guys lots too!!!

Cambria is One!

Hi friends! So I still can’t really believe I am saying this, but our sweet, sassy, funny, happy, feisty, chubby, cuddly, little girl is a whole year old! (okay, so this post is a tad late and she’s more like 14 months now, but who’s counting?!) And this is just way to hard for this overly sentimental, emotional momma. I’m preettttyyy sure I just gave birth to this beautiful girl, but apparently it really has been a whole year. And boy, has it been a beautiful year!:)There are really no words to explain how thankful I am for all that God has blessed my husband and I with. Our son, Jordan, and our little Cambria, (not to mention my wonderful husband!) are just about as perfect as it gets, and I find it a little hard to come to terms with how much I have been blessed with.

I love both of my kids just the same. They are both EVERYTHING to me. But I had been dreaming of our little lady since I was a little girl. When other girls dreamed of their weddings, I dreamed of being a mom (and of course, to a baby girl….which has always led me to believe I would end up with a house full of boys lol). And my husband and I decided on her name when we were 15 years old, and my dream baby girl was “Cambria” ever since. And let me tell you folks, our Cambria has been everything I could have possibly dreamed, and so much more. Every moment with her is a bright shiny gift from God, with a big giant pink sparkly bow on it. Really. Shes just everything to me.:)(I mentioned that I flippin’ adore my son, too…right!?;)). We were blessed before, truly blessed…but now, I really could not ask for more:).

So, here are a few of my favorite pictures from my little “one year” session I did while hanging out and following our sweet little lady around with my camera, and of course, a giant balloon!:)

Shes normally so happy, so I just LOVE this serious photo of her:)

California Country Club Wedding Photographer – Yvonne and Estevan are married!

Hi there! So the wedding season is finally coming to an end, and its giving me the chance to get caught up on editing, album design, and some blogging that slipped through the cracks. Yvonne and Estevan got married smack dab in the middle of my busiest month for weddings, and I shipped their disk out and before ya know it, completely forgot to blog it. But thats ALL about to change!;)

So excited to share this really fun, beautiful wedding at the California Country Club in Whittier. Yvonne and Estevan are such a sweet, easy going couple, who were surrounded by fun friends and loving family. And I just can’t blog this without mentioning that they had the yummiest wedding food I have EVER had! Seriously, the tastiest carnitas tacos of all time!! (I will be the first to admit that my love for food is slightly out of control lol):). The day was absolutely perfect! Enjoy!

Orange County Newborn Photographer – Addison is here!

I’m sure you remember Carri and Jason’s rustic maternity session a few months ago…well, I am SO excited to share a few sweet pictures of their perfect little Addison! She is honestly just so sweet, cuddly,and absolutely perfect! There are not many things in the world that I love more than a brand new baby, so being able to photograph this sweet little lady was a total dream….and it was just he icing on the cake to photograph them all as family, just enjoying the little things, and taking in their brand new baby girl.:)
