Candy Nogales Photography

Capturing authentic, raw and beautiful moment!

Hi, I'm Candy! I love capturing all of the raw, beautiful moments as they naturally unfold on your wedding day. Candids are some of my favorite photos! Don't worry; I will most definitely get those posed family photos as well, but for most of the day, I'm there to document it all as it naturally happens. I would love to chat with you more about your wedding plans and how I can be a part of documenting it!

My focus is making you feel comfortable, relaxed, and free to be yourself. I want your photos to make you feel like you really see yourself or your relationship in your photos. My approach: I keep you moving. No rigid, stiff posing. Movement, interactive, prompts, and capturing those in between moments that are really you.

    My husband Kevin and I were looking for an elopement photographer in Cary, NC. It was a challenge to find the right person as we needed someone who's bilingual (Spanish and English). Candy is a wonderful person and photographer. She made us feel so comfortable, specially my husband who is ex-military and is a little bit of an introvert. I am so thankful for her talent as she was able to capture the perfect moments. The quality and artistic style of her photos are out of this world.

    My wife and I were looking for a wedding photographer located in Raleigh, NC, or around The Triangle area with an elegant/vintage style and we are so happy we found Candy. She's amazing at what she does. She was also very flexible with our wedding date as we had to change it 2x, our guest loved how friendly yet professional she was. The sneak peaks and full gallery were delivered on time. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about her and her work.

    Maria is super easy to work with and learn from all while making the process run smoothy and efficiently. Her work is amazing and I know a big part of that is due to how much genuine fun people have while shooting with her; she captures those memories beautifully.

    I had the pleasure to work with Candy a few months ago, and we had an amazing experience. She is very kind, organized and professional. I'm always nervous about working with other vendors at weddings, but Candy was very friendly and approachable. I absolutely recommend her to other vendors and couples looking for a photographer.
