Shana makes you feel comfortable and helps guide you through the process
We had to change plans for our daughter’s wedding at the last minute and moved it from Ohio where we had everything planned to Virginia where we knew no one. We found Shana Nichole. She made the whole afternoon fun and stress free. We had a great experience and the pictures turned out beautiful.
My wife and I hired Shana to photograph our daughter's wedding. She and her assistant were punctual and well prepared upon arrival. The weather that afternoon was less than ideal but not a complete washout. Her ability to organize the wedding party and efficiently arrange for both traditional and spontaneous posed shots was exceptional. Not a minute was wasted nor did anyone feel rushed. While I was immediately impressed with her organizational skills, it was her creative eye that left the most significant impression. Her ability to capture the candid moments that occur within fraction of a second is what separates Shana from other photographers. Her editing and turnaround is just as remarkable as her eye. As if that is not enough, her outgoing and cheerful personality inspires confidence and joy. I can unequivocally endorse Shana. She is an all star. You will not be disappointed. You will be astonished.
I highly recommend Shana, we are so pleased with her results. She blended as I asked and she captured our moments! Wonderful!
Shana Nicole did an amazing job offering photography and videography for my event. She arrived early, was very professional, and even stayed a little bit later than originally planned before the event lasted longer. She was super friendly to communicate with and always answered emails quickly. Do yourself a favor and book her for your wedding or event!

What to Expect
My style and main goal of photography and videography is to capture events and emotions as they are naturally playing out. There are obviously times and places for staged/posed photos and I always try to capture those as well, but when looking back on photos (and videos), most people want to see how happy they were, catching that glance at your new husband, your child making a wish before he blows out the candles, grandma dancing like no one's looking. I try to be there for THOSE moments. They are what truly describes the event!
Hello! I'm so excited you're here!
I'm Shana [pronounced Shaw-na] Nichole, a photographer & videographer based out of Norfolk, VA. I am known to most of my friends as a "cat lady" but I like to consider myself a lover of all things furry and cute! When I'm not photographing, I enjoy traveling the world and meeting new people, a whiskey neat, and some lovely animal within petting distance.
Well, it all started with a classic Pentax K1000 film camera that was gifted to my boyfriend and I... we didn't realize it at the time, but that tiny piece of machinery would change both of our lives forever ! What a blessing it has been to share the same hobby and passion with the one you love. I just couldn't get any luckier!
I specialize in portrait sessions, weddings, and real estate in the Hampton Roads area.
