I'm Nicola, but you can call me Nic
I'm the friendly face behind this mysterious Fox & Kin moniker.
I'm passionate about nature, equality and sustainability, which is why I created Fox & Kin, to establish a business that reflected those passions.
I am an advocate for keeping weddings simple and eco-friendly and a vocal ally for those underrepresented in the wedding industry.
I don’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a camera in my hand. I’ve never had any formal training; it’s just something that has always seemed so natural to me – a desire to freeze a moment or preserve a memory. Witnessing moments unfolding in a flurry of emotion on a wedding day and immortalising those split seconds is my kind of adrenaline rush.

I believe that all love is equal and all love should be documented equally.
I am fairly vocal about ditching outdated traditions if they no longer carry meaning for you. I am also highly aware of the mass consumption of wedding related 'stuff' that takes a huge toll on the earth.
There are so many things that we think we need to buy for a wedding to take place, but in reality, all you really need is a celebrant and two witnesses.
The plastic signage will likely end up in landfill.
The exotic flowers were flown halfway across the world and sprayed with various chemicals to keep them 'fresh'. And what about the plastic confetti?
Is the temporary joy of these objects worth the longterm effect they may have on the planet?
There are so many ways you can substitute these items or even forego them with little to no impact to your wedding plans, but a huge shift in impact to the earth.
I am a proud ambassador for eco-ethical weddings with Less Stuff More Meaning
PHOTOGRAPHY WITH PURPOSE
If you're curious about how to have a lighter footprint in your wedding planning process, grab a copy of the Mindfully Wed E-Guide to get you started on this journey!
The same goes for all these strange guidelines and traditions that have been carried over for generations without question. If you don't like cake, don't have a cake. If you hate the idea of wearing a white dress, you don't have to! If you'd prefer to just let people sit wherever they want, then fuck the seating chart!
This is your wedding day. Strip everything back and then build it up again how you want it to happen. There are no rules or formulas to follow. And your wedding isn't an editorial for a magazine. It's about you two being so grossly in love that you want to scream it from the rooftops. And if you want to stand on a rooftop and scream your vows at each other, then babe I got you and I am here for that.

In 2020 I was awarded Australasia's Top Emerging Wedding Photographer of the Year by Capture Magazine
I'm also a proud partner of Dancing With Her and Dancing With Them
