Nicole - Thank you so much for being a part of our day. Your comment on fb is so sweet. We had so much fun with you, out in the snow, and are so grateful it worked out that you could be there. The photos are priceless to both of us. What is the next life event can we have you at? Take care, Amy

From start to finish, Nicole EXCEEDED my expectations, and I have the bar set very high. I'm very picky about quality and poses and I was instantly at ease about everything when we started. I was 100% happy with the results and wouldn't change a thing. You have no idea how relieving it was to receive an amazing product, and how FAST I received it. I realized how lucky I was to have picked Nicole for my VERY first professional sitting. Now I never have to look again! What luck! You will not be disappointed. THANK you Nicole!!

Dear Nicole,

I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the service provided by Image Gallery Photography, and with you in particular, in the handling of the tight schedule, guests and attendants.

Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds all other photographers that I have ever dealt with. Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble to you and we were made to feel unique, never feeling that we were just another client.

There is no doubt in our minds, that you will be our family photographer for years to come.  Thank you for capturing our special day with such elegance and providing us with memories that will last us a lifetime!

Image Gallery Photography, Nicole Habel did our family photos recently and I have never been happier. She was so accommodating and wonderful to my family, she made the experience fun and light. The pictures are stunning, they were natural and "us", she got laughing photos and serious photos. I have had professional pictures in the past that have been so modified that it doesn't look real almost over made up. Not Nicole she left things very natural. She had our final product done so quickly too! I will most certainly return! Thank you Image Gallery Photography for catching the very essence of my family!

Eric and I wanted to thank both you and Christina for the fantastic images you captured on our wedding day. Between the two of you, you didn't miss a thing. We knew the importance of getting a professional photographer with experience for our wedding day because it only happens once. We are so glad we chose Image Gallery Inc. The pictures display what a keen eye you have and it was hard for us to keep a dry eye looking through them and reliving the day all over again. There were also many things we would have missed had it not been for you and your cameras.  We both highly recommend your service and thank you so much for your hard work. Love, love, love the pictures!!!

Strong work!

Thanks again!

Love, Heather and Eric Jansen 6/01/13

Our family has had the pleasure of working with Nicole multiple times.  She has taken both of our daughters’ senior portraits, as well as our family pictures.  Her experience and expertise are second to none!  While on the search for a photographer, Nicole came highly recommended from a family member.  Before meeting Nicole, she spent time with me on the phone explaining all the details of our sessions.  She was also extremely helpful describing and suggesting locations for our sessions.  Her photographs are amazing!  We had so many excellent images; it was challenging to choose our favorites.  I truly feel Nicole has become a part of our family and look forward to continuing our professional relationship.

I would highly recommend Nicole with Image Gallery Photography.  She took amazing photos of me and my family.  We took them outside at a park on a very hot and humid day.  I didn't feel like my young girls were cooperating at all and thought the session, at the time, was a complete failure.  Boy was I wrong!  When I got the pictures back I was amazed at how Nicole captured my girls "personalities".  She took many wonderful shots of my family, my girls (both by themselves and together), and even a few of just me and my husband.  She was very creative with posing us and took many posed as well as candid shots.  She was very easy to work with and extremely flexible with her schedule.  We had to cancel once because of rain and she was very understanding of scheduling around my youngest child's nap time.  She was extremely quick at editing and getting my pictures back to me.  I love my pictures and will have memories for a lifetime.  Thanks so much Nicole for everything.  I couldn't be happier!

Nicole did such a wonderful job doing both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. I would recommend her to a friend any day!

Outstanding!  6/9/2011 Testimonial from The Knot - 5 star rated

Nicole was outstanding from the moment we contacted her to obtain details of her services. She took both our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and there was not a bad one to be found. She is creative when it comes to unique posed/group photos and is great at capturing those candid moments. Nicole is prompt when answering questions/concerns as well as posting the pictures to view online and sending disks for you to keep. Nicole is also professional, reliable and very sweet; making you feel comfortable and at ease. In addition to the above; Nicole offers her expertise at a VERY reasonable price. With the vast array of photographers out there it can be hard to pick one...where do you begin? Let's face it; weddings can be expensive. Nicole is a prime example of where her work far exceeds the price you pay! Nicole was the one aspect of my wedding day that I didn't worry or think twice about because I knew she would be the first to arrive and last to leave capturing every moment...and she did!

Absolutely Amazing!  11/2/2010 Testimonial from The Knot - 5 star rated

Excellent Photography!   9/19/2010 Testimonial from The Knot - 5 star rated

Nicole is an amazing artist. She provided our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. She is so easy to get along with. It is like being with a friend, not a stranger. She gets to know who you are individually and as a couple very quickly and is able to show this in her photos. I am very glad that I chose Nicole. If I have future photo needs, she is the ONE I will call.

Nicole was wonderful!  11/5/2011 Testimonial from The Knot - 5 star rated

We were lucky to find out about Image Gallery Photography and Nicole through
A previous photographer that we thought we were going to use did not work out, I was stressed but so happy when I found Nicole.
She has many different packages available for the day of. The package we chose included an engagement photo session with the rights to the photos, 8 hours on the wedding day with 2 photographers and rights to those photos!
On the day of my wedding Nicole and Marie showed up right on time and went right to work. I have not seen my photos yet, but it has not even been 3 weeks. I am so excited to see them. Our engagement photos were amazing so I know our wedding photos will be just as great :)

The best wedding photographer you could imagine!    6/3/2011 Testimonial from The Knot - 5 star rated

Nicole was our wedding photographer and she was absolutely amazing! I can’t even say enough good things about her, and our photos! She did our engagement photos a few weeks before the wedding and she made both of us feel so at ease. My husband was so nervous in front of the camera, but she knew exactly how to make him feel comfortable! I was so impressed! And the photos turned out absolutely amazing! I couldn’t be more happy. She also has great client relations skills and followed up with us a couple of weeks before the wedding to ask what sorts of photos we wanted on the wedding day and helped us to create a general list so we didn’t forget anything. The wedding day was just amazing. She truly documented everything and captured the true feeling and beautiful moments with both my husband and I, our wedding parties, family, and even our guests! She truly has an amazing gift and I am so incredibly grateful that we had her as our wedding photographer. You seriously would be silly not to work with Nicole. I have a modeling background, and have worked with a lot of photographers, but I have to say, Nicole was literally the perfect fit. Image Gallery – you have a customer for life! Anniversary photos, pregnancy photos, family portraits…you name it!! You’re amazing Nicole!

Thanks so much for working with us!  You are attentive, professional, personable and possess an excellent eye for color and light.  Our photos turned out wonderfully!  We hope to work with you again as more Bielawski's enter the picture. :)

Nicole, you were low key, positive, friendly and professional.  Kaily told her friends about you and I had mine go online and see the proofs, lots of great feedback.  You Go Girl!

While working with Nicole I felt very relaxed and comfortable;  I was not rushed nor did I feel forced to smile.  My pictures came out awesome and I had a lot of great shots to choose from. For me that is rare because I usually don't like the way I look in pictures.  If I had another important event coming up in my life I would definitely choose to work with Nicole again.  I received so many compliments on my senior portraits;  I would definitely recommend Nicole to next years seniors.

Thank you for your beautiful work and your generosity for our organization.  The photos you take are not only high-quality, but unique and artistic.  I know that there are many great professional photographers out there, but your beautiful photos in conjunction with your pro-bono work for both us and Operation Love really set you apart from the rest.
Anytime that I need a professional photographer either work-related or personally, you will always be my first choice.
We are very grateful to have your support.
