about WNP


"when i saw you i fell in love, and you smiled because you knew"

Hello! We are Michael + Whitney Nichols, a husband and wife photography team established in the Finger Lakes region of New York, and readily available to travel wherever your adventure takes you.

Aside from our duties as wedding, elopement, + portrait photographers, we stay busy raising babies, renovating our farmhouse, + seeking adventure together at every turn.

Always in search of a muse and a story that inspires, we strive to tell the authentic story of the romance between two people in love.  We want to be there to help you take in one of the most important seasons of your life together, to pause, reflect, + immerse yourself in those priceless moments.

Michael and I met years ago at a Christmas party that my parents hosted. Seeming to know there was something special between us, he encouraged me to get out of our small hometown and explore the world. Travel. Skydive. Scuba dive. To learn, meet, and experience as much as I possibly could...to never settle for anything less than being treated like a queen...and (here's the good part!) that if I couldn't find anyone good enough, then he would always be in our hometown waiting to marry me.

With that promise in mind, I did all the things he said. Traveled to Europe, lived all over the country, jumped out of airplanes, and dove 100 ft in the ocean. But I could never find anyone like Michael.

And so, I found my way back to New York.  Without skipping a beat, we were married on a warm summer day on Skaneateles Lake. Together we travel the world, shooting weddings and sharing our happiness with those around us...always with adventure and love. ...and he treats me like a queen!  

We are continually inspired by our own love story + would love to hear yours!
