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!

Two extremely confident sisters display their “horsewomenship” at Heartland Ranch in Lakeside, accompanied by their parents and their two labrador retrievers.

I am an eighth grade U.S. History teacher, but I think I can now confidently say that I am also a portrait and wedding photographer. For years I took pictures but just felt like it was a hobby. Not any more. I LOVE this part of my life. It can be a little overwhelming at […]

To say I was incredibly flattered that Colleen contacted me to inquire about a photo session would be an understatement. She and her beautifully blended family live in San Diego, but they live all the way out in Campo and they were willing to drive to Bonita for a family photo session with me and […]

I may be biased (I am SURE I am) but these little bugs are just the cutest kids in the world!  Even though they are my cousins, I am sure they are adorable according to ANY standards! Now, they are rascals for sure, but they are sweet, silly, affectionate rascals who stole my heart from […]

This is the THIRD year that I have had the privilege of hanging out with the Norfolk family in the Fall.  This year we met up at Mission Trails and as always, they are so much fun to spend time with!  Each year the kids are a little hesitant to open up to me but […]

How much fun was this?!  Hanging out at Coronado Beach with David and Angelica Angerstein and their family!  Such a blessing.  David and Angelica are seriously some of the most fun, encouraging, straightforward, real, and generous people I know.  I was even lucky enough to have David’s two children, Aaron and Megan, in my class […]

Every time I have a new family session I am convinced I am more blessed than they are!  I meet some amazing people for the first time, and I also get to hang out with equally amazing people that I already know!  Not only that, but living in San Diego makes photography so much more […]

What a joy to be able to spend the afternoon with this adorable family!  As my mom(she was my assistant!) and I waiting on the bridge for the Szafranski family, there were so many people coming to the Sweetwater River Bridge in Rancho San Diego, ready for their Fall portrait sessions and I didn’t know […]

This year was so special in so many ways.  Challenging for sure…for ALL of us, but it had it’s bright and beautiful moments as well.  One thing that was amazing was the fact that I was BOOKED completely during the Fall Season!  I actually had to turn people away even though it broke my heart […]

Isn’t this a beautiful family?  Wow!  The great thing is that they are just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.  The Sherards have been a part of this Chula Vista/Bonita community for quite a long time and have found ways to give back to their neighborhoods through service.  The patriarch […]
