the experience

my why

I believe in capturing classic images that will stand the test of time. Not only do I strive to capture those timeless images for my brides, but also for their future grandchildren one day. You see, these pictures are not meant to sit in an old dusty box under your bed, but to be passed down for generations. These pictures are part of your legacy.

I love gorgeous wedding details, but I love capturing those authentic moments on a wedding day even more. Those photos that really make you feel something and take you back to that moment. The tearful look on your mother’s face as she zips you up in your dress, the moment your father gives his little girl away, that oh my goodness we’re married look on both of your faces, as you’re pronounced husband and wife. Those are the moments that I strive to capture.

I’m a firm believer in becoming best friends with my brides, because being a wedding photographer means more than just taking pictures. It means getting the bugs out of my bride’s train, giving the back of my earing to my bride because she can’t find hers, it means staying by her side to ensure that there’s no need to be stressed. Being a wedding photographer is not about me, it’s about serving my brides in the best way possible.

The full wedding experience begins at $4,200

“Niki did our photos for our engagement pictures as well as our wedding and I can say enough how wonderful she was. She has such a natural talent for photography. She captured our personal style perfectly in both sets of pictures. Niki is a natural at finding the light and ensure the pictures turn out beautiful regardless. It was POURING rain the morning of our wedding and Niki came prepared with umbrellas. Luckily, the rain cleared up and we ended up with a beautiful sunny day. Our wedding pictures have a beautiful glow to them. Niki has a talent for capturing true and authentic moments. So many of our favorite pictures are the ones we didn't pose for and Niki captured without us even knowing. She was quick and efficient at capturing family formals and getting the group organized. She helped our wedding day run smoothly and worked with all of our vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page. Niki is such a talented and organized photographer. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for authentic and beautiful pictures that are timeless and will still be amazing 20 years down the road.”

You were patient with each member of our family, you fit in with the girls, you directed Drew and me and made us feel like models, and that we actually knew what we were doing. From beginning to end, it was just a joy to work with you and I’m truly grateful! You are THE best. We couldn’t be more please”

“They are BEAUTIFUL!! Honestly, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would have such gorgeous wedding photos. I can’t wait until my {future} kids see them!! Seriously, amazing. You’re so patient and that was so important to me. You were patient with my family and myself and I was able to communicate with you on the day as I would a friend. You listened and encouraged me and you were very understanding. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
