Todd Nichols Photography
Defining Fine Art Wedding Photography
Of all the choices you make for your wedding day, photography is the only one you'll live with for a lifetime and the only thing from your wedding day that increases in value over time. Choose wisely! Experience matters!
Todd: My Grandfather loved photography (thats his old mint condition camera below). That's him below in uniform and my father on the left.
When I was 10 he gave me a camera and told me to take photos of whatever interested me. So, I did, all around my neighborhood and then he and I would develop those pictures in his own darkroom. I was inspired by his passion and the interest and excitement he showed about whatever I took photos of. It was fun to be able to share and create with someone and because of him I developed a keen interest in the camera at a young age.
When I was a teenager, my father was diagnosed with MS. This was a tough thing for him and our whole family as he was extremely active and loved to do things with us. He eventually became wheelchair bound. He wasn't able to participate in my activities, but I found that through photography I could share my experiences with him. It bonded us and I felt that I could share my life with him in this way. It was then that I realized THIS is what I really wanted to do! Tell stories and share experiences through pictures!
Julie: I believe you should be celebrated! It's as simple and complex as that.
My mother passed away tragically when I was 2. All I know of her is contained in her wedding album (pictured below) and a handful of pictures. How could my mom have known when she hired her wedding photographer and purchased her wedding album just how priceless those images would be to me and how grateful I am to have them! Her old white wedding album is displayed in our studio. If you happen to come by the gallery, ask me about it and I'll show it to you!
Of course none of us knows how much time we have and how precious each moment is, making it that much more important to celebrate while you can and document with pictures so you and your loved ones can remember always! I know from first hand experience how valuable and important these images will be to you in years to come!
This is the ONLY picture I have of my mother and I together. Imagine how DEARLY I treasure this image!
