Nikki was great at helping us move, laugh, and look natural on camera. On the wedding day, Nikki was great at directing us, our wedding party, and our families to keep things moving and getting all the pictures we wanted while still having fun.“

Nikki was so amazing during our event, especially when I was really stressing out. When she was taking our photos, she already knew the best spots around our venue. She was so fun to work with, and she became like family at the end of our event. I can’t thank Nikki enough for being such an important part of our day, and I cannot recommend her enough!!

Nikki produced excellent photos thanks to her incredible direction. But besides just her talents with the lens, she made us feel wonderful and like we were the hottest shit there was 🔥. She’s incredibly easy to work with, full of energy in a way that frankly even doesn’t make sense, and a wonderful photographer. Don’t hesitate to contact her! If she’s booked on your wedding day just move it.

The quality of her work is incredible and consistent and she always makes sure that clients look and feel their best during their session. I loved working with Nikki. The photos she captured of my wedding are so special and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.“

Thank you for visiting

I'm looking forward to working with you!

What is your photography style?

Personalities come out in the playfulness of life. When you can be taken away from your stresses and allow yourself to let in a little fun, great images can be captured. When we are together you will move, you will laugh, I will throw in a pose or two but my primary goal is to capture your in between moments.

Whats your favorite part of a wedding?

The families. My clients bless me with the feeling of being an extention of their families. We always have the best time together. The mom wants more pics with her best friends, the cousins who have the best dance moves, the senior who opens up their future plans with me. Thats what keeps inspiring me to continue.
