Hello and welcome to my blog!  My name is Nicole Reyes and I am a portrait and wedding photographer in San Diego, California.  My husband and often our girls as well, work along side me which is such a joy!  We hope you enjoy our latest work and getting a little glimpse into our life!

Hi, I'm Nicole!

There is adorable and then there is ADORABLE! These two definitely fit into the second category. Olivia especially is just so full of life and tons of giggles. It was so much fun getting to spend time with them at the Sweetwater River Bridge in this beautifully glowy light! This is one of my favorite […]

Sammy holds a special place in our family’s hearts because he has been a kind, faithful, generous friend to our youngest daughter Katelyn for many years. High school and college can be a challenging time for everyone, but Sammy helped Katelyn feel loved and appreciated and we are so grateful for him and how he […]

To say this was a fun engagement session at the Sweetwater River Bridge would be an understatement! Brian and Darlene were just an absolute joy to spend the late afternoon with. We were laughing and acting like old friends from the very beginning. Darlene and I had been communicating for months about their wedding plans […]

2021 was such an amazing year for weddings and engagement sessions! We were able to work with some wonderful couples and get to spend many hours at their side through this very special season in their lives. I always joke with couples that Zack and I (and now Angelica as well) will be spending more […]

I have shoot in Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, Richmond, Charleston, Savannah, Bakersfield, Ventura, Sedona, Flagstaff, and in the coming year we’ll be […]

Do you love the movie “The Notebook?”  I sure do!  I ALSO loved this fun engagement session designed around the same theme…love, the 1940’s, notes, a picnic, and a bike ride!  What a great idea!  These two definitely agreed with my thought process on this topic because they giggled and snuggled through their entire session.  […]

When Kiyomi reached out to me about photographing her wedding, it became increasingily clear to me the more we talked that she was, and is, someone incredibly special.  Since she and Orlando currently live just outside of Austin in a little town called Hutto, we met for the first time over Zoom and not in […]

As a photographer I have had many engagement sessions that I loved, but as a MOM, this shoot was definitely my FAVORITE!  This is my beautiful daughter Mackenzie and her amazing fiance Antonio.  We love them both so much and we feel so incredibly blessed that they are both a part of our lives.  As […]

We met David and Christine for the first time on the cliffs of La Jolla overlooking this beautiful turquoise ocean.  Even though it’s usually a little awkward when you meet someone for the first time, these two were so warm and welcoming that it made our entire session, including the very beginning, absolutely relaxed and […]
