About Nicole
Hey y'all!

My name is Nicole Kameenui, and I am wedding and portrait photographer from Jacksonville, North Carolina. As a passionate artist, through and through, I strive to create refined and timeless imagery, capturing your love story as authentically and whole as possible. Serving primarily the south eastern part of NC, I am a wandering dreamer so I am ready to travel to meet you and celebrate your exception love story.

My Purpose

My Approach

With years as a wedding photographer/videographer under my belt, I have worked with so many wonderful couples.  Each journey was unique and equally each wedding was also.  I love people and listening to their stories.  My purpose is serving these love stories and telling them with an authentic and whole view.


With an educational background in art and design and natural love for fashion, I approach each celebration with a fine art editorial eye.  I am at my happiest when surrounded by gorgeous architecture or natural beauty, impeccable styling, and of course people who lead with their hearts.



Frequntly Asked Questions



What kind of portrait sessions do you offer?

In addition to weddings and engagements, I also shoot infant / family, boudoir, and fashion. All are shot in an fine-art or editorial style.


Do you shoot Elopements?

Yes! Information regarding this package is available on the "Investment" page. Please contact me with details regarding your elopement!


Can you travel for weddings?

Yes! All wedding and elopements include travel up to 200 miles from Wilmington, NC. Outside of this radius, travel fees such as gas or flight/ hotel fees will be added as needed.


How do we book with you?

A 25% non-refundable deposit and a signed contract is due at the time of booking.

To start this process, please contact me with details regarding your celebration. Once I have confirmed your date is open and we discuss package options, I will send an invoice for the deposit to you via paypal. From there you can pay online or you can choose to pay traditionally check or money order. Information regarding traditional payments will be discussed at time of booking.


How many photos will we get after the wedding?

A good estimate is 500+ images for 8-10 hour weddings and 200+ for elopements. I carefully cull and edit images so each is unique and meaningful in telling your wedding narrative. I'm all about quality over quantity.
