the experience

my why

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

I love gorgeous wedding details, but I love capturing the authentic, emotional moments of a wedding day even more -- the tearful look on your mother’s face as she zips you up in your wedding dress, the moment your father gives you, his little girl, away, that look of pure joy on both of your faces as you’re pronounced husband and wife for the first time, and so much more. Images that really make you feel something and take you back to a specific moment in time are exactly what 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 also means getting the bugs out of my bride’s train, giving the back of my earring to my bride because she can’t find hers, and 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.

"Choosing Niki to be your wedding photographer will be the best decision you have ever made. I wanted the raw, unposed, magical photo's that could never be re-done and she captured just that. The moments where the tears fell, the crazy laughs, the nerves... she delivered far beyond our expectations. Not only is she talented she is so joyful and her energy is contagious to have on your wedding day. She kept the day running smooth and effortless, she blended right in once the celebrations began. She truly adores her brides and I feel I made a genuine friend in her. Do not hesitate for one second, choosing her will be the best choice you could make for your special day, you will feel immediate trust as soon as you speak with her."

"The moment I found Niki on Instagram I just KNEW I had to book her to photograph our wedding. Having timeless, classic and beautiful photos were at the top of my list so I knew having Niki capture the most important day of our lives was a high priority when we were ready to start picking vendors. From our initial meeting, Niki was incredibly kind, easy to work with, great at communicating and clear about her services and work. She was readily accessible as we went through planning and was so helpful with answering timeline questions the week leading up to the wedding. Niki and Brad were phenomenal during the day of. They perfectly know how to capture special moments and didn’t leave any details out—big or small. The entire photo collection was absolutely stunning and more beautiful than I ever imagined!"

"Choosing Niki to capture our wedding was BY FAR the best and easiest wedding decision we made. Hands down! She was professional, down to earth, and just sweet. I felt like I knew her for years and years. Niki just blew away all of our expectations for the big day. When I saw her walk through the door the morning of the wedding, I got teary eyed - I was relieved to see her and the moment of me getting married became so real. Niki is a complete gem. She is kind hearted, genuine, and is one heck of a photographer. She gets to know her brides and therefore knows how to capture the most perfect moments. I give Niki my highest recommendation. There truly aren’t enough words to describe Niki and how incredibly talented she is. We are so beyond thankful and grateful she was part of our special day. We will have these pictures forever…all because of Niki."

"Where to even begin! NIKI IS THE BEST PLAIN AND SIMPLE. A few words to describe Niki is humble, down to earth, professional, and easy to work with. She made Dustin and I feel so comfortable the entire year leading up to our wedding and on the day of, it was like she wasn't even there, however ALL of our most special moments were captured. As a bride I sometimes felt the pressure for everything to be "perfect" I never once felt like Niki was anything less than that. She also captures the important moments and humbles you as a couple reminding you of why you are doing this - love and family. The emotions she captures are truly timeless and we will be able to enjoy our photos for years to come."
