Nicole Amanda Photography is a luxury wedding photographer based in Ontario.

Step into a world where every moment is captured in the embrace of elegance and charm. Meet Nicole and Max, your seasoned companions on an 11+ year journey through the artistry of wedding photography. Hailing from the picturesque landscapes of Canada, they're not just photographers; they're creators of dreams, narrators of tales, and maestros of luxury.

With a treasure trove of accolades adorning their path, these visionary artists have earned their stripes as award-winning international destination wedding photographers. Their craft goes beyond the ordinary, delving into the realm of comfort and relaxation, where authenticity breeds photographs that pulsate with life. With a true-to-life style, they blend your imagination with their technical finesse, birthing images that etch memories onto the tapestry of time.

Their journey isn't just about photography; it's an experience woven with threads of connection. A dance of comfort between lens and lovebirds. Their portfolio reads like a chronicle of beauty, having graced the pages of illustrious publications such as Style Me Pretty, Weddingbells, The Knot, and more. From the whimsical pages of How He Asked to the refined allure of Southern Bride, their work paints a vibrant tapestry across the wedding world's canvas.

For Nicole and Max, this isn't just a profession; it's a calling nurtured since the days of seventh grade. From then on, fewer pictures were about themselves, as the camera became an extension of their souls. Yearbooks turned into a medium of reminiscence, snapshots of a journey that now extends to encompass others' tales. A profound desire to not just capture images, but to weave narratives, led them to this path.

Imagine an album that doesn't merely display photographs but encapsulates your legacy. A visual symphony orchestrated with the melodies of your story, echoing through generations. This isn't mere photography; this is a legacy, a heritage, a gift to your future.

Each celebration is a unique chapter, and thus, every quote is bespoke. As the curtains rise on this grand spectacle, their full-service wedding collections begin at $5,000. This is your invitation to engage, to explore, to experience the alchemy where dreams meet reality.

Their modus operandi orbits around you - your comfort, your ease, your bliss. Awkwardness is exiled, replaced by the radiant memory of your special day. This is the heartbeat of their craft, the essence that makes your wedding photos resonate like a cherished melody. The engagement session, a cornerstone of this journey, bridges the chasm between you and your photographer. It's not just a vendor experience; it's a personal odyssey, a lasting connection. A chance to relive that natural enchantment when your grandchildren gaze upon your wedding tale.

Beyond the realm of weddings, their talents extend to brands, editorials, and content creation. This isn't just a service; it's a collaboration, an opportunity to craft visual symphonies together.

Step into a realm where professionalism dances with joy, where luxury meets warmth, and where your story finds its visual voice. Nicole and Max beckon you to embark on this unforgettable expedition, where photography isn't just an art—it's a legacy. Contact them, and together, you'll script your visual saga.

Truly the best

We could not be happier with our decision to go with Nicole and Max. They were both extremely fun to work with and true professionals. I typically struggle in front of a camera and I am not really sure how to hit poses or smile, but Nicole and Max made it easy. The final products are better than I could ever imagine. I don’t even remember our special day being as beautiful as portrayed by the pictures Nicole and Max provided us. If you are in the market for a photographer, your search is over. Go with Nicole! It is a no brainer!

Colourful multicultural wedding At the Schoolhouse

We booked Nicole Amanda Photography services about 2 years before our wedding and she was gracious enough to let us postpone our date due to the pandemic. I cannot say enough about the husband team of Nicole and Max Pigeon. From the moment you book with them, the communication is clear: they are highly responsive and timely whenever we had questions about our wedding day or photos. They helped us with our whole wedding day timeline and delivered our digital photos soon after the wedding. They even include a wedding photo guide which really helped us think about many aspects of our photos that we wanted to include. The photos themselves are absolutely breathtaking. If you want soft, light and airy photos, look no further. They take amazing portraits and they also captured many sweet candids, which was important to us as well. High quality photos, friendly and fun photographers and memories that will last a lifetime~ a perfect way to begin a marriage!

Amazing Recommendation

We received a referral to Nicole from another photographer and we couldn’t have been happier.

From her detailed pre-wedding correspondence to her friendly and warm presence on our wedding day - like a friend we’ve always known but only just met; we were overjoyed!

Not to mention the lovely photos we received shortly after our wedding.

Hands down the best wedding photographer in Ottawa

We could not have asked for a better photographer. Nicole was amazing from the start! She even sent us a little gift before we even starting working with her. She was flexible when we had to postpone our wedding due to covid. We even hired her for our legal ceremony on our original date, and while she was on maternity leave, she sent someone out for us and we still got beautiful photos that she edited. But our wedding day, oh my god. Having her and Max as a photography team was very special, and unlike anything I had seen before. I haven't even gotten all my wedding photos back yet but the sneak peaks are absolutely gorgeous. She is worth EVERY penny, and then some! Hire her and I promise you won't be disappointed.

Wedding August 6th 2021

Absolutely recommend Nicole Amanda as your wedding photographer! We booked Nicole over two years before our wedding and little did we know what was coming! Through all the hurdles of planning Nicole was so wonderful to work with and answered any and all of our questions so promptly! Even during our planning we made a pivot with our date and venue and Nicole was so wonderful to accommodate us and switch the date without a hiccup! With our engagement photo was so incredible toughing out one of the coldest days last fall and had us so comfortable in front of the camera! We left that day feeling ready to take all the photos on our special day. Max and Nicole captured our day so perfectly and we can't recommend them enough!!

Calm + Amazing

HIRE HER! That's it, that's all I need to say. Nicole & Max are your best wedding decision (I mean after choosing your spouse haha). Nicole was the easiest person to communicate with, whether through person, email or phone. She answered quickly and all of my silly questions. She also was ready with planning material, like a photo timeline and photo list, way in advance like myself and through every conversation made sure to say "Let me know if there is anything I can help with"
For the engagement photos, Nicole stood out in the freezing cold snow to capture the most brilliant photos! She taught us how to kiss, laugh and smile without looking forced and made us feel so calm.
For the wedding, Nicole (and Max) were again the most calm presence and came prepared for anything. I loved having Nicole with me and my girls getting ready while Max was wrangling the men together. She came with a full tote of bridal prep gear for photos and helped me into my dress! She took the perfect candids of myself, bridesmaids and mom getting ready and kept us on track. Although I wasn't there for the photos with the groom, my husband states Max was professional and funny and ready to get photos with our dog who was in the wedding party!
Nicole + Max helped us with our first look which was the best decision we made for photos. They were just in the background snapping our intimate moments together!
Nicole + Max worked through our long list of family formals and was able to set some wandering uncles in line! Max kept on checking in with me to make sure we got all the photos we wanted and then offered some ideas of some photos that might have been missed. Once again, the words I can use to describe both photographers were calm!!!
I don't remember too much of the reception as it surrounded food + wine + laughing/crying through speeches so I loved looking through the photos Nicole took of the reception. She captured the real emotions of our guests and it is memories I will have for forever
We were able to sneak away for some photos during the reception and even those 10 minutes of photos gave us the most beautiful memories of us smiling and laughing.
Nicole even started editing during the reception and gave us a sneak peek of 10 edited photos from the bridal prep to the first look to the ceremony including a wonderful portrait of myself, husband and dog smiling at the camera. Yes, Nicole is that good of a photographer that she got our 2 year old mini aussie to sit and smile for photos!!
Finally, we received our edited photos in record time and were able to show all of our friends and family these amazing photos. Due to COVID, we were unable to have our full guest list and thanks to Nicole + Max, these photos made the un attended guests feel like they were truly there with us.
I cannot recommend Nicole + Max enough. Wedding photos (and their price) are worth it over and over again! Flowers die, cake gets eaten, but good wedding photos last a lifetime!! Especially now with restrictions on gatherings, there is nothing you need more than those memories to show your guests who couldn't be there.
I shared our photos over and over again, posted all over social media and all of my co workers said the same thing "Congrats on your wedding, your photos looked amazing!" They all talked about how incredible the photos were and how they felt like they were there with us.
At the end of the day, I couldn't have imagined our wedding day with Nicole + Max. They are amazing!

Fabulous! Very Professional! Very Nice!

I first came across Nicole's beautiful light and airy photography style when I saw a picture of her work being featured on a wedding website. I immediately added her to the top of my list of wedding photographers. When Nicole told me that she was available for my wedding date, I could not have been happier. Working with Nicole and her husband Max was such a fun and easy-going experience. My husband and I were not used to being photographed, but Nicole taught us a series of four poses that were so easy to learn and made the pictures turn out natural and stunning. On the wedding day, Nicole was more than just my photographer. She practically became an honorary bridesmaid and was helping my girls with their dresses and bouquets. She was fabulous. My husband and I are so happy that Nicole and Max were by our sides the entire night. We would highly recommend them, you won't regret it! :)

Stonefields Wedding

Nicole was AMAZING! From the time we connected at the coffee house in Barrhaven, I knew she was the photographer for us. Aside from her incredibly organized and bubbly personality, her vision was exactly what I wanted for my big day; and that's exactly what we got - light, airy, and beautiful pictures that let us relive it every day.

Our 20 month year old daughter was part of our ceremony and Nicole not only captured our love up at the altar, she caught precious moments with our girl. This was something that was so important to us and she delivered beautifully.

We could not have been more happy with how wonderful everything turned out. We would highly recommend her for any future couples getting married because she took the stress off an already stressful day. Thank you Nicole for an amazing experience!

We cherish our wedding photos

The wedding photos taken by Nicole Amanda on our wedding day were stunning, and we'll cherish them always. She arrived early and took great pre-wedding photos. We hardly knew she was there. She captured the joy of the day perfectly!

Meet the team

Nicole Pigeon
Nicole Pigeon
Lead Photographer

30-something wife to Max and mother of two little girls residing in Ottawa, Ontario. My journey into the world of photography commenced in 2012 when I captured my first wedding. It was at that moment that my passion for this art form ignited, forever altering the course of my life.

Over the span of twelve enriching years, my role as a wedding photographer evolved beyond mere documentation. I have become a trusted partner, often delving into various aspects of wedding coordination. Whether it's orchestrating the timing of events, arranging dress ensembles, pinning boutonnières, fluffing dresses, or ensuring proper hydration – I am there to attend to every detail, leaving no stone unturned.

My photographic style has transformed over the years, shifting from bright and airy to a classic, timeless, and film-esk approach. Every frame I capture tells a story of love and devotion, encapsulating the essence of the moment.

Balancing a demanding career in wedding photography with the responsibilities of motherhood presents its own set of challenges. However, my love for weddings can't keep me away.

I envision a future where I traverse the globe with my little ones, introducing them to the wonders that extend beyond the realms of photography and motherhood. The world becomes our classroom, and every adventure is a lesson in life.

Beyond the lens and the duties of motherhood, I find peace in the rhythmic cadence of horseback riding and snuggling my beautiful cats. My aspirations are adorned with images of a charming country house, where my children and beloved pets can frolic freely in the yard—a haven of joy and serenity.

Max Pigeon
Max Pigeon
Secondary Photographer

Man of many passions and a deep devotion to my family. As a husband and a proud father of two, my world revolves around the love and happiness I share with those closest to me.

My journey through life has been multifaceted, and my diverse skill set reflects the different paths I've traversed. Armed with a degree in business, I embarked on a journey into the corporate world, learning the intricate dance of commerce and strategy. But my thirst for knowledge didn't stop there.

My hands have felt the hum of engines as I earned my automotive mechanics license, a testament to my fascination with all things automotive. Whether it's fine-tuning an engine or diagnosing a complex mechanical puzzle, I find solace in the world of grease and gears.

Beyond the garage, I hold certifications as a pool technician, diving into the science of water chemistry and the art of creating serene aquatic environments.

Being the second photographer in my wife's pursuit of her aspirations as a wedding photographer; it's not just a role; it's a labor of love. Capturing those precious moments for couples on their special day is a privilege.

My heart also belongs to the open road and the open sea. I am an avid car enthusiast, cherishing the elegance of automotive engineering and the thrill of a well-tuned machine. Sailing, too, holds a special place in my heart, as I find tranquility in harnessing the wind and navigating the boundless waters.

Above all else, my devotion to family knows no bounds. I am unwavering in my commitment to those I hold dear. Whether it's providing unwavering support, lending a helping hand, or simply being there with a warm embrace, I'll do anything for my closest people.

Every day is an adventure, and I am ready to embrace it with open arms.
