  • Hi There!

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

    I am Nicole Ladonne Blair. (Yes, Ladonne is my middle name! Yes, it can be confusing ;) )

    This is where you'll find all of my latest weddings and portrait sessions, as well as any major goings on with Nicole Ladonne Photography. Make yourself comfortable, look around, and I hope you enjoy your visit! :)

Erin and James are Married!

I was a big ball of emotion at Erin and James’s wedding. The next wedding I’ll be attending is my little sister’s, and all day long I found myself being hit by wave after wave of feelings- riding right along with Erin, James, and their families on the roller coaster of their day! Erin and James are two of the kindest, most gracious people I’ve ever met, and I feel so lucky that they chose me to be their wedding photographer.

This was also a big wedding for me because it was my first with past client Sarah as my second shooter! Thank you so much for all of your help, Sarah! You were wonderful!

Erin started her day with a letter from James.

The pearls were Erin’s grandmother’s.

Erin’s gift to James!

Erin and James got engaged in the Law Quad, so we knew we had to take some of their photos there!

The Big House is also very special to the couple, as James used to play for UofM!

A quick stop at Jolly Pumpkin to cool off!

Their reception was at Barton Hills Country Club– which has so many pretty little spots!

Oh how I love trusting, adventurous couples!

Both their wedding cake and groom’s cake were made by my friends at Sweet Heather Anne!!! I heard so many people throughout the night say that these were the best wedding cakes they had ever seen!

Their cake topper- made by Sweet Heather Anne, and modeled after the engagement photos I took of Erin and James!

Their first dance was a complete surprise to everyone! It was beautifully choreographed, and they started it out with the song Erin’s parents danced to at their wedding!

The family’s reaction ♥

And then they broke out into Party Rock Anthem! It was SO well done!!! I personally can’t wait to see the video from Epic Motion! 🙂

Erin and James- can’t wait to meet up in Hawaii!! Enjoy your honeymoon!!!

Alice Erin and James, I am so happy for both of you. The photos are beautiful. They show your fun loving spirt and commitment to each other. Best wishes to you.

Crystal and Ryan’s Video!

As I mentioned before, right after I met Crystal and Ryan, we became friends. Naturally, when their wedding day came along I wanted to do something special for them! So, my bestie and assistant, Allison, and I made them a video 🙂 Enjoy!
