Nikki grew up in the Shenandoah Valley and only left briefly for her college years. After graduating from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) Nikki returned to the valley and married her high school sweetheart on a mountaintop in an intimate wedding with only her 13 closest family members in attendance. Nikki photographed her first wedding in 2013, and was instantly hooked. She loves joyful, emotional weddings and is especially drawn to small, intimate events reminiscent of her own wedding day. Nikki also enjoys documenting families and birth through both photo and cinema. When she’s not working, Nikki loves traveling with her husband and three sons, hiking, camping, and enjoying great food and wine.
