  • Hello Friend…

    and welcome to the blog! I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with Rusty, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just the two of us - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with your cup of tea and begin reading. Enjoy, friends! (Latest posts on the right!) --->

If any of you have had the chance to either read Pride & Prejudice or watch the 2005 film, you will most likely agree that every girl should have their own Mr. Darcy. If you have not had the pleasure of doing either, I hope you can appreciate the tiny insight into one of the most romantic love stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Thank you to Ashley, my dearest cousin, for being my model. Her love of reading, tea, and Jane Austen helped make this shoot seem almost like it was set back to the early 1800’s, where the story takes place.

Mr. Darcy’s proposal to Lizzy: “You have bewitched me body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.”

Although we have only been able to photograph a couple of weddings since we began our career as photographers, I can already say I am in love with shooting weddings. I was the type of girl who had planned her wedding since the day she was five. I am a hopeless romantic and cry during Beauty & the Beast when Belle finally confesses her love to the Beast. I absolutely love love and cannot wait to be able to be a part of more weddings.

With that said let me introduce our first wedding – we were able to co-shoot in Brainerd (with Meg from Meg Cooper Photography), a gorgeous town surrounding Gull Lake. I was a bit nervous before arriving at the bride’s family’s stunning woodland-style home overlooking Gull Lake.  However, as soon as I met the bride, Chelsea, and groom, Sam, I knew this was going to be a fantastic wedding. The entire wedding was filled with love, tears, and laughter.

We finished the night with their first dance on the lake – a perfect ending as the sun finally peeked through the rain clouds. It was such a perfect setting for a couple who absolutely lives for the outdoors, especially the lake.

We had such an amazing time getting to know this couple and being around the gorgeous scenery of Gull Lake – we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding to capture. Congrats again, Sam & Chelsea! :)
