Hey- I'm Nicole. When I'm not working with the raddest couples I'm typically brewery hopping with my wife, or home spending time with my three dogs. I live for SU basketball, and love just about any other Syracuse sports team (Crunch, Mets - count me in). I have been photographing weddings for over ten years, and in that time have had the opportunity to travel around the world and meet tons of new friends.

We went through two bottles of champagne to get this photo right. Samantha and I got married in one of our favorite places- Las Vegas, and went out into the desert to take our own portraits. It was awesome. Capturing memories like these are what I live for, and I love that couples entrust me with doing this for them too.

"Scott and I are so grateful for Nicole's patience, artistry and flexibility! We loved her style when we chose her & she delivered that style perfectly. Nicole is pretty amazing at pinpointing details - there was a great close-up shot of the kilt and kimono we wore that expressed our cultures so beautifully... I had no idea she captured it! Somehow she was so perfectly present-but-not-there; making sure to get the right angles and shots without being intrusive. She provided many choices for each shot, the quality was incredible & it really helped us build out a beautiful wedding album. It certainly was worth the wait for the final photos!!"

"I would most definitely recommend Nicole Lagoe Photography. Her spirit is comforting and her enthusiasm for what she does is contagious. She has so much talent for what she does and my pictures turned out incredible. Her work really speaks for itself until you meet her and then it all makes sense. I would not have had anyone else photograph these special moments in my life. I won’t only remember these special days but the lady behind the camera capturing them. Thank you Nicole!!!"

The Winkler Family

"We recently moved our family out of NYC, and I really wanted to get some family photos before my husband left on a military deployment. I did a quick google search looking for a photographer in the Syracuse area and came up empty. I was spoiled in NYC with so many options, and the style of many Syracuse photographers I saw online wasn't my taste. Soon thereafter I was introduced to Nicole's work by my sister-in-law, and knew it was the perfect stylistic fit! Nicole was super quick to respond and set up a date to shoot, and she was both extremely professional and personable during the entire process. We had such a fun time working with her, and our photos turned out even better than we imagined! I highly recommend Nicole for family photos, and also think her wedding work is beautiful!"
