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!

On the day that we shot Reid and Rachel’s wedding, we had only been back from Hawaii for three weeks, but the Catamaran Resort made us feel like we were right back in the tropics! Reid and Rachel did such an excellent job picking out their venue! A little piece of the islands right here […]

As Aldo spun his daugher around the dance floor there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Raquel’s dress was perfectly made for the twirls she experienced in her father’s arms and as they embraced, the real emotion on each of their faces very apparent and endearing. This was not so different than earlier in […]

This was a day filled with family and friends, and I do mean FILLED! Just one look at this very large bridal party and it is so obvious how loved Ezzie and James are by so many people. Sisters, brothers, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, etc. stood by their side as they celebrated their special day […]

This was such an amazing day! Other than one little glitch with the details (which Kiyomi and I rectified later that week) it was absolutely perfect! From the beautiful details (especially the SHOES!), the adorable two-year-old, the bridesmaids’ gifts, the handmade veil, an outpouring of authentic emotions, a historic hotel, an even more historic mission, […]

To know Kelsey is to love her. She is genuine, warm, completely engaging, and drop-dead gorgeous! It’s no wonder Peter is head over heels in love with her! Kelsey seriously looks like a princess from a fairytale every time I see her and when she and Peter did their engagement pictures, taken by Kristen Booth […]

To be a wedding photographer is a dream come true.  I LOVE weddings and I always have.  When I was very young, up until the time I got married, I would go through bridal magazines and cut out images of weddings and dream about my own.  It sure would have been easier if we had […]

When Brooke contacted me about shooting a bridesmaid session with bride Nazanin, I was so excited!  This was a first for me!  Never have I had a bride who was marrying someone from another country, having her wedding abroad, and then moving to an exotic country right afterwards!  Beautiful and fun bridesmaids…in one of my […]

David and Christine’s wedding was such a celebration!  A celebration of their love for each other, of their amazing group of friends, of their beautifully blended families, and of their cultures and heritage.  Every part of the day spoke of love and joy, of gratitude and thankfulness.  From the moment Zack, Angelica, and I walked […]

Nothing could stop the joy that radiated out of these two beautiful souls.  Not the threat of COVID, not the impending rain(it rains about 5 days a year in San Diego!), not the loss of a button on the back of a stunning wedding dress…nothing!  Austin and Caroline were literally glowing even though the weather […]

Planning a wedding is no easy task!  We are in the process of planning our daughter Mackenzie’s wedding and it is quite daunting!  Don’t get me wrong, Mackenzie and I are definitely having fun, but it is a lot of work.  What we have found, at least from our experience, is that the two most […]
