Hi I'm Nicole (she/her), and with nearly a decade of experience in the portrait and wedding industry, I bring creativity and vision to every photography session. I have a genuine love for people and connection and I hope that you see this when you look through my photography portfolio. Together with a close team of videographers and second shooters, I have photographed hundreds of portrait sessions and weddings, and my clients are consistently thrilled by their gorgeous imagery and high-quality artwork. 

My true passion is giving families tangible memories of their most precious days together with the ones they love. I want you to leave your session with beautiful images on your wall and in your hands, not stuck on a hard drive. For that reason, I partner with the best professional printers and craftspeople in the world to create exceptional pieces of wall art and albums for my clients to treasure.

I have a Masters's in Speech Pathology and a double degree in Education and Psychology. The experience I have had working with children and adults in the clinical setting has allowed me to have a unique skill set that I lean into in almost all sessions, whether or not the child or another family member has a disability or additional need. I am passionate about all families having professional photos to commemorate life's smilestones and I would hate for families to miss out on this because of fears surrounding the shoot its self or the expectation that their child will not know how to behave or do what is requested of them.

“I am an inclusive photographer specialising in supporting children and adults with disabilities, and additional needs, to have a relaxed and stressfree photography experience.”

Inclusion Statement

At Nicole Paton Photography, I am committed to creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and respected. I believe that diversity is a strength and we welcome people of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, religions, and backgrounds.

I strive to create a safe and welcoming space for all of my clients and ensure that everyone feels comfortable and confident during their photography sessions. We understand that each individual has unique needs and preferences, and I am dedicated to working with each client to provide them with the personalised and professional service they deserve.

I also recognise that diversity is not just a goal, but an ongoing process of learning and growth. I am committed to continually educating myself on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to use my platform to promote positive change in our industry and our community.

I believe that everyone deserves to have their stories and experiences captured and celebrated through beautiful photography. I am honoured to be a part of that process and to help each of my clients feel seen, heard, and valued.

My Philosophy

"Photographs are your legacy"

Your photos are the tangible thing that remains after you have left this earth. Leave a legacy for your family, be in your photos with your kids, show the world how much they were loved.

Your wedding portraits and those special in-between moments that you are unaware of me capturing are always my couples favourite images. You can trust me to capture your special connection to your fiancé and your guests in a relaxed and candid manner.

Photography Client Group

I have always loved the role my clients play in the creative direction of my work. Drawing from their experiences and my knowledge we create art together. I started the NPP Client Facebook so that all my clients, should they choose to join, can support each other, share tips and tricks, and form a community of like-minded beings.

“Nicole and her videographer Katherine really made our wedding very special. After hiring them, we knew from the outset we had made one of the best choices of our lives. They listened to all of our requirements with absolute patience and delivered the best quality work possible - something that not just met but surpassed our expectations. Our highest recommendation ever for any professional photographer - worth every penny, you would just fall in love with their work!”
