Nora Hanako Photography

Authentic, Dreamy, & Candid StorytelliNG


I'm Nora, an inclusive elopement & wedding photographer based out of Calgary, Alberta who is always planning for her next destination! Specializing in unique celebrations of love, big or small, I love capturing your wedding day as it unfolds in a dreamy & filmy style and making room for the genuine emotion of your day to shine through. Together we are going to create memories that you will cherish for years to come and I can't wait to help you remember every second of them.







I've always been a hopeless romantic and a sucker for a good love story. My childhood was filled with romance novels, princess meeting their princes, and songs that make you feel like your person is right around the corner. While I take inspiration for my work from those scenes that play in the sparkly corners of my brain, I also value photos that feel like they are part of the fabric of your relationship. The best way for me to capture unique love is to create a genuine connection with my couples, which all starts here!

Nora is just the BEST! I knew even before we met that she was everything I could hope for in a photographer and so much more! Her "Wedding Welcome Guide" not only showcases her amazing work but also tells you pretty much everything you need to know about planning a wedding (the timeline was on point). From our very first meeting, Nora made things effortless; She somehow managed to bring all the hype but at the same time put us at ease. During our engagement session and on our Wedding Day, she made sure we were comfortable and gave us pointers, but she also created space for us to be us. Words cannot express how thankful we are for Nora or how beautiful our photos turned out, but there is something so special about how she was able to capture the emotions in the moments.

If you are looking for a photographer who is easygoing, personable, and creative, Nora is your gal! From the moment we decided to go with Nora, through emails and our first meeting, we knew we had made a great choice. Not only is Nora a great photographer, but she is the ultimate hype girl! She made us both feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, and we are so happy with how the photos turned out. We did not have a clear direction of what we wanted, but Nora ran with it and came up with the best photo ideas. We will look back and remember all of the best moments of our special day thanks to Nora! 10/10 would recommend!

I can't possibly say enough good things about Nora. The incredible work she did for Sagar and I is something we are going to hold close to us forever. She is incredibly talented, so kind, and an absolute blast to spend time with. I still can't believe these are our photos sometimes. The way she has captured the day in a way that makes all the feelings come alive is such an incredible gift. I will always recommend Nora for anyone looking to get photos done. We love you, Nora!

"We can’t speak highly enough of Nora and our experience with her as our elopement photographer! Not only was she professional, organized and an absolute delight to have around on the day, but she went above and beyond by helping us find a new location when our original location closed unexpectedly. The pictures from our day are stunning and really captured us as a family.
I will cherish these photos and memories forever, and would recommend Nora in a heartbeat.

Kait & Eric

To say we are obsessed with our wedding photos is an understatement. We have revisited our gallery countless times since our wedding in June, and each time we discover a new favorite shot. Nora was a joy to work with - she is beyond talented, a wealth of recommendations and advice, kept us on schedule while making the day feel effortless, and became a welcomed addition to our friends and family.  We will treasure these forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"

Renaud & Alexis

"Nora was absolutely incredible! So professional and we are blown away by the photos. Not to mention she was willing to fly across the country for this. Her attention to detail is outstanding, and you couldn't ask for a better person to have capture your special day! The energy she carries herself with makes everyone SHINE in front of the camera. Love you endlessly Nora."
