We were so thrilled with Nancy's coverage of our wedding day! We knew many friends whose weddings Nancy had photographed in the past and because of their beautiful photos, we had high expectations. Nancy surpassed our expectations and we are so grateful for such wonderful memories from our big day. We look forward to having Nancy document more of our family's milestones in the future--she will always be our go-to photographer!
Without a doubt, Nancy captured the essence of our wedding day! She first came to our family home to shoot photos of me and my bridesmaids getting ready and then booked it to the church (an hour away) to get some candid shots of the groom and groomsmen before the ceremony. After the ceremony, we met up at a beautiful lookout point (at Nancy's great suggestion!) to do family and bridal party photos before heading to the beach and dock near our reception for more photos. She also photographed throughout our ceremony and reception.
I mention all these different settings because in each one Nancy knew exactly how to go with the flow while still executing a well-thought out plan based on our phone conversations leading up to the Big Day. (We live in DC and had our wedding on Cape Cod so meeting in person was not possible due to distance, although Nancy offered!). Small things - now reviewing the photos - made all the difference: where to place bouquets (at the belly button!) and reminding us gently of good posture really brought our final photos to a whole new level of quality!
Most importantly - and a huge reason I am recommending Nancy to future brides - I like to consider myself a low-maintenance bride and Nancy really respected this throughout the course of the day. I can honestly say that I did not see her during the ceremony - though she captured GREAT shots - and I hardly saw her during the reception. This was important to me as I have attended weddings that made me feel like I was being hounded by the paparazzi - and I was only a guest! Nancy maintained a respectful distance so the events of the day could unfold while still being in tune with all the special moments that make for great photography.
Finally, Nancy puts all her energy and attention into making a bride and groom feel special. On Valentine's Day, she sent a treat to celebrate our upcoming nuptials and on the wedding day, she kindly showed us how to best cut the cake together to avoid a mess and ALWAYS remained focused on making sure my dress was not getting torn or dirty by our surroundings - think beach, sand. These small touches really made for a great day! Thank you, Nancy!
If anyone should want to chat over phone or email, just get in touch with Nancy and she can pass along my contact information!
Yay for great wedding photos from Nancy! :)
I would recommend Nancy in a heartbeat, and all my friends and family have loved and raved about her as well!
Nancy was our photographer for our New Years Eve wedding this year. Our friend recommended Nancy to us after her own wedding. My friend’s photos were really stunning. We saw other samples of her work at our consultation and were impressed by the naturalness and beauty of her work. She was easy to work with leading up to the wedding day, always responding promptly to emails/calls. Nancy even initiated a meeting prior to the wedding to organize family shots so they went smoothly and quickly the day of. She was also able to get all the shots we wanted without being intrusive or in your face; we really felt at ease. Our photos from our engagement session and wedding are so beautiful, the only problem we have now is picking out the photos we want from about 800 great shots! We couldn’t be happier with our photos and have really enjoyed reliving our fabulous day through her work.
My satisfaction (and frank elation) with Nancy is beyond words!
Nancy shot both our engagement session and our wedding day. And we are amazed with everything she has done. She worked with us to create the perfect mood and style for our engagement shoot, and she put together a beautiful, artistic guest sign-in book with our photos.
On our wedding day, Nancy was going full-steam all day long. She stayed with the ladies as we got ready, and her colleague Mark stayed with the guys as they got prepared. Nancy and Mark captured the most emotional and sweet moments of our first look, and did a fantastic job taking pictures of our whole wedding party at the Boston Commons. At the Museum of Science, Nancy seemed to capture the most sweet, loving and inperceptable moments.
For the price, Nancy provides the most personalized, complete and artistic package. I cannot be superlative enough.
Thank you Nancy, for capturing our most special day.

Nancy is by far the best wedding photographer that I have ever seen. Her pictures are works of art and aren't your typical staged photos. She is great to work with, very professional and friendly. She made taking photographs a lot of fun (even for my husband who doesn't love photos as much as I do). She has a great eye for catching just the right moment on camera. I will cherish her photos forever.
Nancy was fabulous. She worked with us to create a package that would work well with our budget and then treated us like we spent a million dollars.
Like the others said, she hung out in the background and I hardly knew she was there. She was very friendly, i'd recommend her to anyone!
Nancy is amazing! She is one of the most talented photographers I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Her works speaks for itself. She truly has a gifted eye and catches the most candid and breath-taking pictures. We were so happy with our pictures from our wedding. We couldn't have asked for better shots! And, Nancy is a sweetheart (and so are her assistants!)! She is so kind and will do just about any shot you ask her to. She is also very un-obtrousive. She doesn't get in the way of sohts, or make a big scence when shooting...we didn't even realize she was snapping us during the ceremony! I have been at weddings where the photographers have loud equipment or stand in the middle of the aisle and are just very visible...Nancy blends into the backgroup but dont be fooled, she is getting those shots! She is a real trouper! HIGHLY recommended! You will not be sorry you booked her!
Nancy photographed our wedding in 2008 - well, photographed is an understatement. Nancy made us laugh, kept me calm and photographed some of the most special moments of our wedding, friends and family.
In 2009, Nancy photographed a good friend's wedding which overlapped with our first anniversary so we have a great "1 yr later" shot.
Two years later, Nancy tickled our 6mo daughter to create and capture some very special smiles.
Nancy is smart, funny, caring and all of this shows in her photos.
Nancy Gould's work is beautiful! She is professional, talented and incredibly nice! I would recommend her to anyone! She is well worth the cost - one of a kind!
Nancy photographed my wedding almost six years ago and I still remember how fun it was to work with her. She has a fantastic eye. And she's just so nice. The photos arrived quickly. I wish I could get married again just to have her take more photos.
We loved working with Nancy and her assistant for our wedding day! The photos are amazing, and the album she created will be cherished for a lifetime. Nancy was very sweet and professional, and captured the day from every angle. She even shot all the little details that I had worked to create. Truly outstanding work!
We have partnered with Nancy Gould many times at events and her level of professionalism is unsurpassed. The quality of her work is astonishing and we highly recommend interviewing her if you are considering hiring a photographer. Photographers must rely on personality to ensure a certain level of comfort with their clients during a day-long affair. Nancy is easy going but dedicated to producing a flawless product.
I've had the pleasure to work with Nancy, she's fabulous! Aside from being a phenomenal photographer, she's very personable and a total professional.
Nancy Gould Photography does phenomenal work. As a professional in the wedding and event business, I would highly recommend Nancy to brides & grooms, as well as wedding & event professionals looking to hire a photographer who is detail oriented, and who offers gorgeous and thoughtful compositions. I found Nancy to be very easy to work with, and she is wonderfully helpful, friendly and warm. I look forward to working with Nancy again soon -- thank you Nancy!

As a photographer, I enjoy capturing distinctive moments—be it a spontaneous burst of emotion or subtle detail—in a low-key manner. Simply put, you’ll barely notice I’m there. For me, a great wedding album tells the true story of an important day without ever looking like a staged, unnatural event. That being said, I realize the significance of some formal pictures, and work with my clients to achieve those in a quick, friendly manner without turning their wedding day into a photo shoot.
