Hi my name is Nikol. I am a destination fine art wedding, portrait and editorial photographer, who loves creating timeless, elegant and luminous images full of love, that my couples cherish for a lifetime.  

Film photography is my everything, it is  the way I see the world: dreamy, soft, beautiful, eternal and full of light.

I have a passion for traveling to incredible destinations, experiencing different cultures, architecture, and capturing unique love stories for my lovely clients.

My clients are provided with not just a day-of-service, but an experience. I am completely invested in each of my couples from the very initial meeting through the wedding day and beyond. To give each of my clients their undivided attention and service, I only take a limited amount of weddings each year.

After having studied at the Economic University in Bratislava Slovakia,  I began a career stemming from my qualification, which then opened up the opportunity to work and live in Morocco, Africa.

This is where all started. This year, it´s exactly a decade of shooting, travelling and documeting love stories. Full of ideas, strength and motivation to put everything into my pictures, I always strive to create a wonderful way for my clients to reminisce about their most amazing memories; so that they are kept alive forever. I want to provide them with timeless, enlightening pictures that ignite sparks in your heart: pictures filled with love and laughter -warming your heart, sending the memories flooding back.

My photographs come from the heart. My aim is to capture your emotions, feelings and bring out your personality and individuality in every single shot. I always pay close attention to lighting, fine details and the cleanliness of my photos. I’m only satisfied once you feel as comfortable as possible during shoots and once my work exceeds your expectations. I am passionately devoted to what I do.

Based in Europe (speaking 3 languages English, German and French), with serious wanderlust I specialize in destination shoots and will travel worldwide wherever your love takes you.

Whether it is about wedding, elopement, engagement, honemyoon, aniversary..… and you search for artful photography with meaning, images that capture you at your best, I am here for you!

At the end of the day, after the dress is tucked away, the cake is eaten and the party is over, your photos are one of the only tangible things left….

Hope to see you soon,

Honored and proud to be featured


Nikol is one of the most sensitive and artistic spirits I have ever got the chance to work with 😍 Not only is she extremely gifted to transpose natural beauty into touching photographic stories, but also an extremely kind person, finding beauty in the smallest details. One of the things I love most about her photographic style, is the perfect mix of spontaneous, candid shots, artistic poses and decor details 😍

Also one of the most important features in a planner’s eyes - it is a great pleasure to work with Nikol, as you can 100% rely on her judgement, punctuality and going the extra mile to make sure the event is a total success.

I don’t even know, where to start 😊 Nikol is an amazing photographer with an eye for even the smallest detail, incredible passion for her work and she is also a great person.
From the very beginning of our wedding planning till today, she has always helped us with whatever we needed, ready to give advice. She helped me chose a bouquet, she was interested in the wedding dress, the cake and decoration choices, she even went to the venue months before the wedding to have an idea of the place, to make sure that everything is just perfect on the day 😊
On the day of the wedding Nikol and her husband were positive, cheerful, full of energy and great ideas. The photos themselves are just unique, they perfectly capture every emotion and atmosphere of our wedding.
We couldn’t have made a better choice. Even thanks to Nikol and her husband our day was so perfect and we are happy they were part of it 😊 THANK YOU 😘

The unique and most beautiful experience that we ever had !!!! Nikol (and Andrej) were amazing from the minute they arrived to the end ... they catched the moments we wanted and much more !!! We can only recommend ... because only a professional photographer can make from a non photogenic couple a real art. WE THANK YOU!
— Zuzana Day, Ireland
Nikol, we would like to thank for our great images. This time it is our 4th shoot and 100% not the last :)! Photographing always takes place in a very pleasant, relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we always feel very comfortable.
Nikol can capture incredible moments even in a short amount of time and create amazing photographs ( in bad weather conditions or when child was crying). We definitely do recommend Nikol and are looking forward for our next session :-)
— Erika Spitz, Germany
Thank you very much for the photos and also for the amazing company and patience during our wedding :-) We are very glad that we chose you to accompanied us during the most beautiful days of our life and for stunning memories. We will definitely meet us in the future, either for another shoot, or simply to have a coffee:-)

As for feedback, I would like to summarize it in one sentence: “There are a lot of photographers but there are only a few like Nikol Bodnarova”☺ I would like to thank you for everything: photos, time with our family, for your professional approach ...It was the honor to meet you and I hope we will see us in the future again ...

From the moment I saw Nikol’s work, I instantly fell in love with her soft, romantic essence and beautifully captured details. It was a pleasure to work with Nikol from beginning to end. She was such a tremendous help in coordinating many aspects of the shoot with me ensuring that everything was perfect for the day of. She had far gone out of her way to help my vision come to life, which I am so grateful for. Our wedding photoshoot was so much fun and such a memorable experience and the photos are absolutely incredible. Thank you for capturing such an important moment in our lives so beautifully, magically and eloquently. We will cherish these photos for our lives. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for everything Nikol!

When I was looking for a wedding photographer, I spent a lot of time searching, watching other photographer´s images, but I still returned to your photos, your work ... Something was telling me that YOU are the right photographer for us ! And I was right, we had got not only great pictures and memories, but also friendship ☺ Whenever possible, we will come back to you and put in our album precious memories that you can capture. Your approach, the preparation in detail, and your passion is simply amazing ❤

Thank you for the most beautiful wedding photos we (my husband, daughter and me) could ever have! Nikol has such a huge talent, she is modest and kind person. Taking photos had never been so easy (my husband hates it, but with Nikol and her husbad, he would do it again anytime :) We did not have much time for taking portrait photos, but she made the best of it. Everyone is envious of them 🙏. The feelings that go from our photos are taking me back to our dreamy wedding. It´s not only the photos, but emotions she caught! Her every photo is a masterpiece and we are proud and grateful that we are having wedding photos from her 😍❤️
— M. Bondorova

If you’re looking for a nice, creative, professional and reputable photographer, Nikol is the right choice. Warm wishes and a lot of success in your future work!

Somebody is trying to learn the whole life how to take photographs (some are more successful, some less) and there are some, who are already born with it. Nikol has it in her blood! We thank you very much dear Nikol for the amazing images. Looking forward to meeting us soon for another shoot 😉
