My Story

I am an Ottawa-based photographer with background studies in photography and film image arts. I offer a creative and contemporary approach to my work and employ a variety of techniques to bring out the absolute best in each and every photograph.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with the world that can be seen through a camera lens. It’s a world filled with magic, mystery and timeless beauty. It amazes me how a single image can transform plain into exquisite, dull into exciting, and ordinary into exceptional. My dream is to capture the world in a way that will inspire others to see it as I do.

Things I love


My Fiancé
Alex Wiegelmann

I never thought I would meet someone like Alex. He is my best friend and my biggest fan. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can't wait to marry him on July 16, 2016!

My Fur Baby
Max

Max has one of the best personalities a dog can have. He is extremely well behaved... when he wants to be. He's also very photogenic and loves the camera (he has to be the centre of attention).

My Family
The Smiths

Family is extremely important to me. My parents have given me every opportunity to follow my dreams, and I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for them.

My Job
Photographer

I have been extremely passionate about photography for a very long time. I am dedicated to providing my clients with beautiful images that will serve as an everlasting memory.

Some Sweet Words


Cindy and Geoff
Wedding

Nicole is a fun loving young lady who is very passionate and professional at the same time with her photography, she did a great job with our Wedding photo's, capturing everything from the cake to our Red Shoes and Socks!! Keeping us organized and on time. Her smile and enthusiasm will take her far in the photography world. Thanks again Nicole!

Kayla and Jon Scarr
Maternity

Nicole has an incredible talent. She has an eye for photography that is only described as a gift. No matter the weather or situation she makes things work and makes the entire process enjoyable. My husband and I had Nicole shoot a maternity session for us and wow, we were blown away. Not only did she take the rain that decided to intrude our session into her own hands she had us laughing despite getting wet. She used the rain as a prop, was so very patient with us and made us feel very comfortable. We were so happy with how our photos turned out. Thank you Nicole for everything. The entire process was enjoyable and everything was handled very professionally.

Shelley and Dave Goldberg
Wedding

We wanted to thank you so much for your amazing ability to capture the essence of our wedding day in such an enchanting way. We absolutely love the photos you took and are so happy with the selection you have provided us. You were able to include a variety of everything that made up our day and we cannot wait to share the photos with our friends and family. With the wedding now over a photo is the only way to preserve the special moments. Your photos will absolutely succeed in doing that for us. We would recommend your services to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is a joy to work with and has the ability to put you at ease. Thank you again for everything.

Christine and Buddy Leung
Family

This summer 2014 I had an occasion to meet and work with Nicole Smith to get some special photos done for our family. The total experience with this young photographer turned out to be a pleasant one and in some way extraordinary due to Nicole's ability to keep things simple and natural. We enjoyed the photo shooting session because Nicole made it fun and relaxed. Our photos are beautiful - fresh, natural, youthful and happy. We were so pleased with the images, we ordered a complete set for our family keepsake! Our pictures will always remind us of this young, kind hearted and imaginative photographer, Nicole Smith Photography. Thank you Nicole for the lifetime memories!
