Hi, I'm Nikki I'm a photographer from Western Massachusetts.

 

My photography is constantly evolving but I think I will always find joy in capturing the connection between two people in love.

The focus of my work has shifted towards primarily shooting weddings and elopements but I am also available to shoot portraits and branding/marketing campaigns.

What is it like to shoot with me? Often there's laughing.  Often there's kissing.  I don't pose my clients but rather explore moments together and snap photos along the way.

To get to know me a little here is a list of some stuff I like:

Thrifting Vintage

Thrifting is a real life treasure hunt.

 

It's so exciting to stumble upon an old film camera or finding an amazing vintage dress that fits just right! 

 

Second hand vintage is how I keep my home and wardrobe sustainable but to be honest I just love vintage styles better.  

 

Couples who have a flair for vintage style:  

 

I want to meet you and photograph you!

Music

I love listening to old records.  

I love dancing to 80's Italian disco.

 

I bring a small speaker to play music at every photoshoot.  

I fancy myself somewhat of a DJ and have a couple playlists that are  pretty freakin good.

Photography

Ok, I'm not just saying I love photography because I'm trying to rack up business. I really love photography. My style & aesthetic is inspired by art and cinema.

 

I shoot digital for all client work. I play around with 35mm film but Instant film is definitely my favorite.  I usually try to sneak a few instant photos for client work because it's always a one-of-a-kind outcome.  

The Beach 

There is no place I'd rather be than on a beach somewhere.

Animals

I love animals.  Yes, I too wish you could have brought your cat to your photoshoot.  If you have a doggie and want to run wild during your shoot, I'm into it.  

 

love my cat Baby.

So now you know a little about me.  

I think everyone should get to know their photographer before working with them!  You should like your photographer, not just their photographs. (although, yeah, you should defiantly LOVE their photography too)
