"After spending six months deployed as part of an Air Force Combat Camera Team I returned to Colorado yearning to simply "look like a girl" and to feel feminine. My photo session with Nicole was not only more fun than I had imagined it would be, but she maintained a high level of professionalism in her craft and creativity, allowing me to act unexpectedly natural. I did not feel intimidated by the camera, which is common for photo subjects. As a result, my photos made me look and feel not just like any girl, but a beautiful, confident and sexy one. I have never in my life felt so good about my appearance and for the first time in years I am proud to show people a photo of me. Nowadays, anybody can buy a camera and snap a photo or even a selfie, it takes a talented and patient "eye" to capture real life - abundant in beauty, rawness and realness. For making me feel beautiful again after feeling like a less cinematic version of G.I. Jane for several months, I have Nicole and her camera to thank!" --- Leisa Grant, LiME Productions, Boulder, CO

"The entire team at DragonDev recently had the pleasure of working with Nicole Duryea at Side Angle Photography to help us with photography for our company’s website and media. Nicole’s eye is impeccable in finding a great location, the right light as well as making everyone on our team look their best! If you are looking for professional photography with someone who is talented and extremely fun to work with look no further, Nicole is the best!" --- Keith Dragon,

"Nicole takes what can be a stressful process for people and makes it endlessly pleasurable, creative and fun. She brings out the true essence of her subjects, making for a wonderful experience and great photos." --- Sue Heilbronner,

"Nicole’s photography is a class above. Like few others, she has a way of capturing mood and moment. I suppose this is something you have or don’t — and she definitely has it. Plus she loves her work and cares as much as her clients that her photographs are creative, professional and communicative. I’d recommend Nicole in a heartbeat!" --- Vic S., Boulder

"As someone who dabbles in photography, I am often behind the lens of the camera - rarely in front. No surprise I feel very uncomfortable having my photo taken. When it was clear that I needed to find a way to get past this for a particular project I had coming up, Nicole was the first person I thought of to hire - Nicole's photos are filled with people who have a love for life expressed on their face. Without a doubt the entire process was far easier than I would have ever expected, and the photographic results she provided far exceeded expectations - no easy feat considering people are hard to photograph...especially reluctant people! I do know without a doubt should I ever need a similar job or know others that will, it is without hesitation that I will go straight to Nicole for more!" --- Lauren A., Denver

"Nicole shot photos for our outdoor summer wedding and did a fantastic job. Both her portrait and candid shots showed a wonderful attention to detail while also feeling spontaneous. Every photo captured a perfect moment and all of the joy and fun of the afternoon and we would highly recommend her to anyone." --- Ian and Heather, Portland, OR
