Do you love LOVE too?
Hey there! I'm Nikki and I capture the oh-so-special moments for couples and families in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. (And, if we're being honest, anywhere else you want to fly me!)
I LOVE love, and have the privilege of photographing authentic emotions and stunning details for my wedding couples and families. That sweet kiss, a private moment you want to remember forever, a cheeky smile that warms your heart, or an emotional moment you never want to forget? It's my job to save those for you, in bright and bold digital images. It is such a pleasure to work with people from all walks of life in a variety of stunning locations. If you are a couple in love, a family wanting memories to cherish forever, or someone needing professional digital images, I want to work with you! I stand for equality and love to work with people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and body types.
I'm friendly and organized, ready with a smile and encouragement. I love natural light but use flash as needed, and include a variety of beautifully posed portraits with candid or prompted captures. The joy of my job lies in the amazing people that step in front of my lens! Don't worry, we will make it happen together!
I think my story is a pretty interesting one. Want to know more? Just ask, or here is a bit more about me...
I can't wait to hear your story and look forward to working together to capture memories for you! Perfectly imperfect, authentically and beautifully ourselves. That's my goal for all of us.
Authentically and beautifully ourselves.
That's my wish for all of us.
Behind the Lens
My husband Paul and I love living our best life; I capture beautiful memories through photography while he's a high school principal. Originally high school sweethearts, we celebrated our 20th anniversary last summer! We've had opportunities to live and photograph in America and internationally. The relationship with our photography lifestyle came from wanting to document incredible moments in life. I really do LOVE love and convey that through the images I capture for the fantastic people that I get to work with!
Aside from your friendly, bright and bold photographer, I am also a wife, traveler, friend, dog mom, teacher, and pretty darn good cook. I make the best peanut butter fudge! (The secret is that it has melted marshmallows in it!) I have insatiable wanderlust and have traveled to 24 different countries! I've been on safari in Africa and dune bashing in Dubai. Christmas Markets in Europe are my favorite way to spend the holidays! I love to learn and have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Education from the University of Louisville. I was a teacher and worked in the Middle East to help open schools for local students before I followed another passion of owning my own photography business. Purple is my favorite color and I think a partly sunny 75 is the perfect weather. I adore our pup Bibi, a black and white cocker spaniel that couldn't be cuter. Fun fact, Bibi is learning to talk with buttons! You can see her progress at www.instagram.com/justbeingbibi
I love to share my stories and hear others stories. Perfectly imperfect, authentically and beautifully ourselves. That's my wish for all of us.
