About Nora

Owner. Principal Photographer. Super Geek!

I really mean it when I say that photographing weddings gets more fun every year! I love getting to know each couple I work with, and making sure that they have the best wedding day ever! The love stories I get to capture fill up my heart every time. On your wedding day, you can count on me to lend a hand, laugh with you, fix your dress, keep an eye on your timing, and bop along with that killer dance beat as I’m snapping through the night.

About me personally? I am a lover of theatre, MANY geekdoms, and adventuring with my wife Lauren Shelby<3. Perpetually excited to see where we explore next!! I'm beyond grateful for my friends-who-are-family. Favorite things to do with them in my down-time include escaping into the great outdoors, trying new foods/recipes, subscription Mystery Boxes and Escape Rooms (I love a good puzzle!!), and a good old-fashioned game night. And when I say MANY geekdoms - try me - I'm there for that hilarious D&D meme, that obscure Whedonverse ref, and I legit own Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.

I studied theatre at Northeastern, and afterwards co-founded the business that ultimately grew to be Solare Wedding Photography. I’ve always loved photography, and I’m so glad I am able to make a living doing something I am so passionate about. Living in Concord NH, I’m also lucky enough to be able to continue making theatre for fun and contributing to my community by supporting the Arts for future generations.

  • I wish I could give Solare more than 5 stars, because they deserve it! Nora has been great to work with from the start, but she went above and beyond on my wedding day! She did everything possible to get the most amazing pictures of my husband and I, including crawling in tall grass, and hiking on giant rocks next to a river! She showed us a few pictures throughout the day, and every picture that she showed us was breathtaking!
