Thank you for your interest in Nicholas Gore Weddings!
We’d love to hear from you! Please let us know a little bit about your day and we’ll help you design a package that works perfectly for your needs.
Before anything else, let me say congratulations on your engagement! This is a huge moment for both you and your fiancé and I want to let you know how much I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your special day!
While we at Nicholas Gore Weddings can customize your experience to suit your exact needs, there are certain things that EVERY client receives.

We’ve all been working together for years and we work as a cohesive team to make sure you the client walk away with gorgeous images of every part of your day. You will NEVER pay extra for this.
– Pixieset Online Gallery: Most wedding photographers take 30 to 60 days to deliver their images,Nicholas Gore Weddings realizes that you’re excited to see your images which is why we promise to deliver your images on a beautiful Pixieset Web Gallery in 2-4 weeks! If you haven’t heard of Pixieset, check out a sample gallery HERE! It’s the fastest and easiest way for you to get your FULL RESOLUTION images, share them on Facebook and order prints!
– Full Resolution Files and Print Rights: We provide you with all of your full resolution images from your wedding day, as well as a signed release allowing you to print through Pixieset or through their favorite online or local printer!
– Customizable Hours: Coverage times start at 4 hours for most dates (see below) and coverage can be crafted to suit your individual needs. See our Prices section for more information.
– Engagement or Bridal Sessions: I absolutely love my portrait sessions! They are one of my favorite aspects of shooting weddings because they really allow me to get to know my clients and create some truly memorable images!
– The Photo Booth: If you’re looking to spice up your reception with a fun and engaging element, the Photo Booth will do just that! Instead of small printed copies of each photo which are quickly lost, the Photo Booth takes high resolution photos and simultaneously projects them on to the backdrop as well as sending them wirelessly to an iPad where your guests can view their photos and email them to themselves! These images are often the most fun shots of the night!

If you have any questions at all please feel free to Contact Us!
We want our website to make things as easy as possible for you so we’ve compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions for you to look over. If you have anything else you’d like to know please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be in touch within 24 hours.
What is your style?
Our style is probably best demonstrated by our portfolio! Check it out HERE. Also, let’s be honest, your wedding day is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life and if my photos don’t reflect that, I haven’t done my job. We want to capture that joy for you so you can remember it forever!
How long before my wedding should we book you?
This depends on your wedding date. If you’re getting married in the peak months of May or October we recommend getting in touch between 12 and 18 months and for spring and fall we recommend between 10 and 12 months. For all other dates we recommend getting in touch no later than 6 months out. Keep in mind though that there is no guarantee your date will be open no matter how early you get in touch.
Can you provide us with references?
Absolutely, get in touch and we will be happy to send over a list of past clients for you to speak with.
Who are your second photographers?
We have a number of photographers that we choose from based on availability. All photographers that we use have been personally trained by Nicholas Gore to make sure you get the best photos possible on your wedding day!
Do you work off of a shot list? Can we give you a shot list?
While we do not work off of a specific shot list, you’re welcome to let us know if there are any specific shots you’d like for us to take during the course of your day!
Do you deliver in Black and White or Color?
We deliver all final images in color but if there are any that you would like to see in Black and White we can easily convert them for you.
What gear do you use?
We use top of the line Sony cameras along with Profoto lights. We also have backups of all of our gear.
How long have you been a wedding photographer?
I worked as an assistant for several years before I shot my first solo wedding in 2010.
How many weddings have you photographed?
Our team photographs between 60 and 80 weddings per year. As of 2018 we’ve photographed over 350 weddings.
Can you recommend any other vendors?
Absolutely, we have worked with some really amazing people over the last few years so we’d be happy to give you recommendations!
Do you have insurance?
Who will shoot my wedding if you are sick?
I would have to be in the hospital to back out of shooting a wedding, but if the unthinkable did happen I have a team of photographers who work with me and one would step in to shoot your wedding. It has never happened and hopefully it never will, but on the off chance that it does, we’re prepared for it.
How many other events will you do on my wedding day? That weekend?
We will only shoot one event on your wedding day. For your wedding day you are our primary focus! We do our best not to book more than 2 weddings in a row, but during peak seasons that can be extended to 3.
Will there be a contract?
Definitely! You can see a blank copy of my contract HERE.
How much editing/retouching do you do?
We edit every single image that we deliver for contract, exposure, saturation, white balance etc. and usually the portraits get a more intensive edit but we usually do not do any intensive beauty retouching. That said, I tell all of my brides that if they show up on their wedding date with a giant zit that we will of course remove it!
What happens if we need you for longer on the wedding day?
Despite everyone’s best intentions wedding days usually run behind schedule. Don’t stress though! If you need us to stay for an extra 15-20 minutes we’ll be happy to get whatever last minute shots you need. You’re welcome to add any number of hours during your wedding day, we just ask that you pay the balance before the end of the night.
What do you wear?
We tend to shy away from the black on black look and instead try to blend in more with the crowd. I generally wear dark slacks and a white or blue button down shirt on wedding days.
Do you have more work to show us? Can we see a full wedding?
Absolutely! If you’ve already gone through our portfolio and blog feel free to get in touch and we’ll send over a full wedding! Let us know where your wedding will be held and we will probably be able to show you a wedding from your chosen venue!
How soon do we receive our images?
We deliver wedding images in two to four weeks and albums in 1-2 months depending on our schedule.
Are their any additional fees after the wedding?
Absolutely not. There are things that you CAN buy after the wedding but when you book a package with Nicholas Gore Weddings you’re buying the coverage on the wedding date and then access to the full resolution final images! There’s no need to spend a penny afterwards unless you want to.
First off, let me say congrats on your engagement! It’s definitely an exciting time for you and your fiance so we try and make everything as simple as possible so you can get back to celebrating!

I live and work in Charleston, South Carolina but waive all travel costs between Myrtle Beach, SC, Columbia, SC and Savannah, GA. However I regularly travel to New Zealand and am available both nationally and internationally.
My name is Nicholas Gore, but call me Nick.
I am a wedding photographer in Charleston, South Carolina. I have also been lucky enough to be selected as a contributor to one of the world’s largest photograph websites www.Fstoppers.com. It’s an amazing way for me to give back to the online communities that taught me so much when I was first starting.
I spent my high school and college years with a camera glued to my hip, but it never crossed my mind to actually try and be a photographer. In the middle of trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life however, a friend of mine called me in a bit of a panic asking if I was available to assist on a wedding in town the next day. I’d never shot a wedding before, but my friend seemed to think that I would be good at it, so I agreed.
I won’t say that my first wedding changed my life, but it gave me a completely new perspective on the job of a wedding photographer. Not only was the fast paced atmosphere exciting, and the ability to be there for some of the most important moments in a person’s life deeply moving, but it was also so much fun!
From that point on, I assisted and shot weddings as often as I could, and now nearly 10 years later, I’ve photographed over 300 weddings and worked with some truly amazing people! I can honestly say that if I won the lottery tomorrow, I wouldn’t change my job, I would probably have many, many more cameras and every lens ever made, but it wouldn’t change my love for doing what I do.
My goal is to pass the fun and enjoyment that I get out of capturing my clients’ happiest moments on to my clients. If my clients are having fun, and I’m having fun, there’s no way that can’t be expressed through my work!
My style is bold, colorful, elegant and relaxed.
My name is Nicholas Gore and I am a Charleston, South Carolina wedding photographer because it’s the best job on earth!
I look forward to the opportunity to create something beautiful for you and your family to cherish for years to come. Contact Nicholas Gore Weddings today!
