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.

Paso Robles Destination Wedding – David and Melinda are Married!

David and Melinda’s Paso Robles destination wedding was absolutely breathtaking. I absolutely loved every moment that I was fortunate enough to photograph of it! They got ready at the beautiful Hacienda Los Suenos in Paso Robles, and it set the tone for a intimate easy-going day. We took some romantic photos on their gorgeous property, and then headed over to enjoy what could have been the most fun, family filled intimate wedding at The Loading Chute in Creston. Their wedding was complete with romantic lace and burlap details hand made by Melinda’s daughter, and I loved the farmhouse style reception seating in front of a rustic barn! And of course I HAD to sneak them away for some quick pictures in their absolutely stunning surrounding fields). Although David and Melinda’s goal was to have a wedding day that was fun, and not necessarily fancy and perfect – it did not lack in either department! 🙂

David and Melinda- Thank you SO much, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to be part of your big day. It was such an absolutely joy to be a small part of your story!

My Erin Condren Life Planner and Why I Love It!

Okay, I’m going to be the first to admit that I am totally smitten with my new Erin Condren Life Planner. I lived by my old planners through the years before, but with my growing business’ and general busy days with 2 kids, church/MOPS/Preschool events, etc., I was shoved out of the comfort zone of my old office supply store planner, and seriously needed something more.
I did lots of research, asked Facebook friends, watched YouTube videos, and read blogs (see, I have a planner problem! 😉 )…and the Life Planner was clearly the obvious (and super fun) choice for me to move on to!
And for my brides reading along, I’m pretty excited to tell ya that they have a wedding planner too!!! So fun!! I would have been so excited to snag one when I was (detail obsessed) planning my wedding! 🙂

I’m going to tell ya a bit about why I love this planner, and why its worth upgrading to. If you decide you might want to jump on the Life Planner bandwagon, you can use this link for $10 off! Holla! 🙂

If you are not only a planner/office supply lover like I am, but also Etsy obsessed, there are many great add-on’s available through Etsy! Be sure to check out some of my favorites, here.
You can customize you planner with washi tape, stickers, custom downloads, etc. Its all pretty fun.

I made a little video of my box opening, so feel free to watch! 🙂

I will be sure to post some pictures once I get it all customized with the included stickers, my washi tape, and transfer all the dates and busy things from my current planner. 🙂

If you want to get your hands on this fancy pants planner, be sure to take advantage of the $10 off code they will e-mail you after registering with this link.
