How to plan a wedding in an ever changing World?

Elopement and Intimate Micro weddings are small affairs featuring time-honored traditions like having a beautiful décor, a photographer, cake, and décor but, on a smaller scale with a lean guest list of usually 20 to 50 people, usually close family members and a few friends. This allows you to be surrounded by the people you love or just the two of you. We can relate to an ever-changing Wedding schedule and making a luxury Micro wedding with 50 guests.

We (Team Cradle) did just that with a micro wedding 18+ years ago and we still say I do.

After going around with locations, dates we decided to keep the focus on our marriage, parents and siblings. Let us help you document the memories.

We would love to be your photographers for your wedding story.

What better way to start your wedding story than with Engagement session and a personalized Bridal Session.

Then include that bridal image as a framed image to welcome your guest into your Wedding Day venue.

Destination Wedding? Intimate Wedding? Large Celebration?

There's something for everyone with Niada Cradle Photography.


How do you photograph weddings?

Behind the scenes, candid and posed.
While photographing I want to make sure you get everything out of your moment, being as natural as possible. Covering life as it happens. I don't want to constantly interrupt you to get you to poses. This is where our complimentary consultation comes in handy. We discuss the 'what ifs', devise plans AB and C. Then we plan some more. I want you to be relaxed on your day. If I/you do miss a must-have moment we will just do a replay. It happens Your music, the flower girl something may happen. I don't want you to stress as we will want you as carefree as possible.

Our experience with Niada Cradle photography was amazing. Niada and Corey photographed our destination wedding in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. She was so pleasant to work with, being patient, answering all our questions, and accommodating our requests while we planned our event from states away. Niada and Corey were calm and professional- taking all of the stress away from my husband and I. At times, Niada was there, helping me laugh when I was feeling stressed the morning our our wedding. At the end of our day, I felt like we had made new friends! Our finished photo albums are so beautiful, beyond anything we could have imagined. Niada and Corey captured our moments artfully with grace. We highly recommend Niada Cradle Photography to capture your special moments - they will exceed your expectations!
