nicoleNicole Rork’s experience is vast: from shooting abandoned buildings, bands, engagement photos, family portraits, live shows, weddings, hitting the road on tour, having her photos featured in national publications at a relatively young age, Nicole has already shot the sorts of events that life-long photographers would kill to feature in their portfolios. Despite her wide-array of experience, however, Nicole remains as approachable, modest and attentive to detail as ever. Her work has matured over the past decade and there are no restraints on her future endeavors due to the right combination of talent, persistence and love of the medium. Nicole’s work is the kind that will always be timely, always tasteful, always unique, and always sought-after.

Nicole is based out of San Diego, CA and Detroit, MI and is available for travel worldwide.



Nicole is as phenomenal of a photographer as she is a person; every shoot was creative and well organized. I recommend anyone needing professional photography to consider Nicole at the top of their list.  Stephen Christian, Anberlin

1934570_105166547423_5078743_n-150x150Nicole Rork has an exceptional eye for catching “that moment” in her photographic work. There aren’t many photographers out there that have both a great sense of timing as well as composition in their work and Nicole has both. She has been attentive to deadlines and quick turnarounds and has always been a great person to work with on many projects over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone – from a band needing promotional shots to a couple who are ready to enjoy their wedding day.  Mike Shea, Alternative Press CEO
ruthdan_reception_086-150x150 (1)My wedding day was the most beautiful day in my life, and my husband and I were incredibly fortunate to have Nicole Rork there to capture the best moments. We were so happy with her efficiency, quickness and creativity – Nicole proved she really is in the top tier of wedding photographers in this country. We were absolutely stunned when we got our pictures, and our family and friends have been raving about them. I almost made the mistake of not hiring a professional, and am so unbelievably relieved that I had Nicole shoot my wedding. She tastefully and uniquely captured all the essential memories that Dan and I will hold and cherish throughout our life together. Ruth, bride

Nicole has been the epitome of professional in both quality and attitude for the many years we’ve worked with each other on personal and professional jobs. If I need photographs taken, I want her behind the camera.  Reid, Arson Media Group

The photos turned out better than I imagined. I would definitely use Nicole again in the future. Rebecca, bride
