The Founders

Mikayla Nicole + Spencer James


Our Story

We launched Nicole + James Co. in 2022, shortly after getting married.

I, Mikayla, started my career as a real estate photographer for Kline, Kreider & Good Auctioneers and Kingsway Realty Agents in 2019. Over the years I took on more and more freelance work and built an extensive photography portfolio of real estate, Airbnbs, construction projects and more.

Spencer studied business and marketing at Messiah college. Over the years he furthered his knowledge through working in human resources and sales. His expertise and encouragement were driving forces behind starting a business.

My love for photography, growing client base and our combined interest in business all culminated into the formation of Nicole + James Co. We decided to put our learned skills to use and grow a business with the mission of helping others do the same.


With our background in photography & design + business & marketing, we make a great duo.

The arrival of Iris in 2023 prompted us to grow our team in order to better serve our clients and manage our workflow while raising our busy baby. Our team is made up of friends and family and we love working together! We all use our unique skills to contribute something special to the company. When scheduling a shoot, you may be in contact with Martina who excels in organization and thrives while accomplishing tasks.  During a shoot you might meet Brooke, who has a keen eye for composition and who's personality is sure to brighten your day.
