Hello, my name is Cori Nichols.

It's not your job to know how to be photogenic, it's mine.

I am extremely grateful for being able to do something every day that I can’t begin to imagine a day without. Opportunities to capture memories of events, your growing family, the successes in your business…no matter what I’m capturing, it’s about the experience and emotion behind it.

When you chose me as your photographer, you don’t just choose me as somebody who can take photos – you are helping me live my dream, you’re helping support families, giving local students opportunities and providing work to other small business owners, such as make-up artists, printers, other photographers and photo labs. Although the pictures are something I love to create for you, my job is also about the relationship I make with you.  At the end of the day, your family or your business becomes part of mine.



Cori Nichols is the cover and event photographer for Fairbanks Living Magazine and has been featured in other San Diego publications.

Get to know Cori: She grew up in Northern California and moved to Southern Cal to earn a BA in Law at UC Santa Barbara. Cori met her future husband at UCSB and after a short life in Los Angeles, moved to San Diego. She has two sons and two rescue pets, a dog and a cat. She is a football mom and a Scout mom. Cori founded and participates in a monthly Book Club, volunteers bi-monthly at Ladle Ministry serving our city’s homeless and is a Board member for multiple organizations. She would divulge what she does in her spare time, except she really doesn’t have any.
