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.

South Coast Winery Wedding Photographer – Sarah and Brandin are Married!

I am so excited to share Sarah and Brandin’s South Coast Winery wedding with you guys! It was SO much fun photographing their big day! I’ve got to tell you, the weather was crazy, and there was some last minute location changes due to the super heavy rain, but Sarah was probably the most calm, relaxed bride I have ever photographed. I absolutely loved that she was just enjoying every bit of her day despite the crazy weather! Besides working with the sweetest couple (who are also sweet friends of mine), I was SO stinkin’ excited about Sarah’s amazing black wedding dress! I mean, hello…does it get ANY cooler that that?! I LOVE a bride that has a little fun with the details! Everything about their big day was perfect and beautiful, and I was so happy to be a small part of it!

Sarah and Brandin- Thank you SO much for everything! I hope you enjoy your preview, lots more to come soon! 🙂

Orange County Wedding Photographer – Meagan and Josh are Engaged!

I am SO excited to finally be posting Meagan and Josh’s redwood engagement photos! And I am even more excited that one of my very best friends is getting married in just a few months!
Of course I had so much fun exploring the redwoods in Orange County (such a hidden gem!) with them, and loved chatting with my sweet friend and her lovely fiancé, Josh. I honestly can’t wait till their wedding at Pomona Valley Mining Company, and feel SO blessed to be able to enjoy it AND capture it all with my camera!

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.)

How dreamy is Lissette’s tea length blush gown!? I about died when I pulled it out of the bag! SO pretty!Edgewood Lake Tahoe Wedding

So I spotted this dock (with those amazing mountains in the back ground), and about lost my mind.

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!)
