Introduction: 👋🏼 My name is Nick it's nice to meet ya! I'm a Photographer for any occasion in the Charlotte, NC area! Are you looking to have some high quality photos at an affordable price at your event? Then I'm your Guy! I am currently one of the most affordable and reliable Photographers on Thumbtack!
📸 WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER HIRING A PHOTOGRAPHER:
Why should you hire a photographer in the first place? It's simple- you are looking for high quality photos for an event, for an engagement, wedding, birthday, baby shower or for any other occasion. And you want someone that is there at the event on time, who is reliable and someone to click more than just 4-5 photos. You may feel like asking a family member or friend to take photos at your event and may already considered that person but you have to ask yourself will those photos come out clear or blurry? Will they deliver and capture the entire event for you? Will they even show up?
Very similar to anything in life you go to professional because you are seeking high quality work or a service from someone that has the years of experience and skills in that particular field or area of expertise. You are looking for a professional to get the job done. For example, you would seek out a Wedding Planner to plan your big day so you can hand off those more time-consuming and stressful responsibilities to a professional who enjoys and thrives doing that.
Hiring a photographer can help alleviate that similar stress or anxiety so you can relax and just enjoy being with your guests at your event so they can celebrate with you. With hiring a photographer you can have fun at your special occasion knowing that all the memorable moments are being captured. I highly recommend you to look into hiring a photographer for that special occasion if you have been thinking about it!
🏡 ABOUT ME:
I've been living in Charlotte, NC since 2000 and enjoy the "Queen City"so much. It is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and rightfully so and there much to offer here. Chances are you are new to the area...and if you are then first of all welcome! Secondly- you will see why many people love this city after visiting & exploring around the different neighborhoods of Charlotte! I can definitely recommend some great places to eat + drink, things to do, and explore later on if you'd like!
As far as personality, I have a causal & relaxed demeanor about myself. Friends and Family would describe me as warm, down to earth and positive + optimistic. I like lot of laughs and most likely you will catch me laughing at something or during our photoshoot together. I love anything outdoors related (hiking, exploring new parks, kayaking, or just being out on a beach/lake house). If I can go anywhere right now as a destination it would be somewhere tropical since I like being around nature, sand, ocean and warm weather! I enjoy trying new restaurants and foods + drink options within Charlotte or wherever I end up traveling to. Korean BBQ and Vietnamese Cuisine are some of my favorites but that can change as I'm always open to new recommendations and my taste palate changes! The next Netflix show that I would like to binge watch is "Beef". My all time favorite movie I can watch over and over again would be The Mummy with Brendan Fraser & Rachel Weisz.
If I am not doing that then I'm most likely spending quality time with friends & family or at home hanging out with my Chihuahua puppy named Rabbit who is 3 years old. He has high energy yet has a loving personality and is super needy.... Did i mention needy? LOL...
What makes me happy most is creating an inviting, warm and fun photography experience while capturing those special moments through photos for everyone. I want to leave a great lasting impression in such a way that I turn the narrative of taking photos feeling like a chore for families to ... That was so much fun! - I want to book/take photos next time again with Nick!
📸 ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY CAREER:
For as long as I can remember I took interest in cameras and taking photos. I would be the one in the family that volunteered to take photos of everybody during the holidays or events! But I really started taking on photography professionally in March 2020 when i decided to go all in on this passion of mine and it was one of the best decisions that I've made because I really love what i do. If you are looking for a “Picasso” of Photography (meaning master or expert) then we are most likely not the best fit (which is okay)!
However, I am considered a “Top Pro” on Thumbtack which means that I have been delivering excellent customer service, high quality photos and just overall a great experience consistently through out my photography career for the community. According to Thumbtack, only 4% of pros receive this qualification. I am one of few photographers on thumbtack that have this “Top Pro” badge and I hold it to a high regard and have a lot of pride in that because I love what I do and delivering an overall great experience to everyone I work with!
✅ I do have plenty of professional experience with taking a variety of photos for any event occasion. Within past 3 years, I have done 350+ photoshoots for individuals, couples, and families! Please take a look at my "Featured Projects" photos below and "Customer Reviews"... If you like what you read and see, then I'd love to chat and potentially work together!
😀 I have experience in taking photos with a high end professional camera while focusing on exposure, quality, lighting, different angles and much more. I also have some experience with photo editing with Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop as well! I currently have a professional Canon RP camera that I primary shoot with with a wide array of different professional lenses that I use depending on the event or occasion. I have a 2nd + 3rd professional backup cameras as well that i've shot many events with! I do have a mini portrait studio with 2 professional light stands within my home that i've shot headshots, birthday photos, holiday photos, and more!
I realized how much of a passion photography is in my life and I would love to help you with your photos to capture those special moments! I love meeting new people and will work with you with the photo look you are trying to achieve and your overall theme.
