With my wedding photography, I’ll be certain your memories are captured and preserved so you can look back at the images and remember the amazing day when you committed yourself to your partner in crime.

A Note from Jordan & Phillip

I cannot say enough about how amazing Nikki was. The photographer was probably the most important thing to us for our wedding. I instantly fell in love with her style, she has an amazing way of capturing all the color and life of a moment, but translating it in a way that’s soft and dreamy. We did our engagement shoot with her first (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) and even though my fiancé and I had never been photographed professionally before… and we are NOT the model type…. she made us feel SO relaxed and we had such a fun time walking around and taking photos. Nikki makes you feel like a million bucks! We got our engagement photos and we were absolutely blown away. I mean, I expected good photos, but Nikki gave us AMAZING photos. I couldn’t believe how good (and natural) we looked! Nikki captured our big day with perfection. I can’t stress this enough… she shot literally everything I wanted. Okay so enough about the pictures, you don’t have to worry about that with Nikki. On to how she is to work with…. Nikki is so sweet and funny! She not only works well with the couple one-on-one, but your photographer actually pretty much has to deal with everyone that you have to deal with on your wedding day. And she does a great job…I don’t know how she does it. She’s so easy-going, but not shy! She knows exactly how to direct everyone for photos, and how to gather two sides of families in like a split second. Also, Nikki was extremely responsive the whole time from when we hired her, to the wedding. She got us our photos promptly, even while dealing with surgery shortly after our wedding. We will definitely go to Nikki for any photography needs from now on, and I HIGHLY recommend her to ANYONE. She’s the best around.

A Note from Jane & Brian

Nikki is AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about working with Nikki Schell Photography. When we first got engaged I said a photographer was high up on my list of priorities so we started searching. I came across Nikki’s work on Instagram & her beautiful, bright, colorful pictures instantly caught my attention. Her style and personality seemed just right for us so I contacted her. It was actually our initial correspondence that drew me to Nikki, her witty questionnaires and back and forth correspondence convinced me she was the one! Nikki is everything you want in a photographer. She made the process so easy, was flexible and patient & her photos are obviously AMAZING. Our engagements photos were wonderful and we received so many compliments on our wedding website and save the date. We just knew she would be magic for the wedding and she did not disappoint. We got married on the beach with over 200 people and about a 40 person wedding party, which included a lot of kids. We really put her through the ringer but she was up to the challenge. Every single person raved about how amazing and professional she was. From handling the heat, to engaging with the kids, Nikki killed it! We also had a second shooter named Rachel who was an absolute delight to work with. Nikki also was very involved with the reception, keeping people on track, relaying messages, we really couldn’t have pulled the day off without her. If I could give her 8 stars I would! (8 for Ovechkin). The last thing to note is how quickly she turned the photos around. She also posted teasers which were just so fun to watch out for in the weeks leading up to getting the final photos. Needless to say we LOVED Nikki! Make the best decision of your wedding and hire her!

A Note from Tara & Chris

We cannot recommend Nikki enough. Wedding pictures were really important to us going into wedding planning! After searching for photographers for actual months and not being able to find the right style, we found Nikki, and we knew we had finally found the right one! Nikki is brilliant. She had no problem directing us and helping us feel comfortable. Not only that, but she’s so creative! We gave her complete artistic control over both our engagement shoot and our wedding shoot, and we are beyond pleased with the results. Nikki really utilizes colors in the most flattering way, and she’s absolutely out to capture the maximum beauty that she can. She’s also very personable! Our guests raved about her, and our families still haven’t stopped talking about how amazing she was! Nikki is resourceful, patient, effective, and the best choice we could have made.
