I feel like we really hit the jackpot with Nicki, when I first stumbled across her website I fell in love with her amazing ability to capture real, raw, natural moments. I LOVE how playful Nicki's photos are, she's great at whipping up a crowd and getting them to do something silly so there's no stuffy smile at the camera in order shots (unless you want that - and we did have to have a few of the mantlepiece shots - which Nicki was happy to do) - but it's the fun ones of the groomsmen gossiping or the old grandads sticking their tongues out - she manages to capture the youth in every single person and I think that's down to Nicki herself being such a fun loving, caring, happy spirited person. All the guests commented on how excellent, friendly and approachable she was and how much they liked hanging out with her too. Her photos were superb - everything we had dreamed of and more - and our day would not have been the same without her.

We first came across Nicki when she photographed a wedding of one of Scott's colleagues and were immediately taken by her ability to capture real emotion through her candid, fly-on-the-wall style. We quickly got in touch (for fear of her already being booked on our big day) and from our initial conversation, Nicki felt like an old friend. She was very friendly, yet professional, and made us feel so at ease and 100% confident in our decision to book her. Our big day came and went in a bit of a blur but I remember very clearly sitting at my desk at home a few weeks later, sobbing my eyes out as we went through the pictures Nicki had taken. She had captured so many unrepeatable magical moments and each photo brought back so many feelings of joy, love and laughter. She has such a talent for capturing people at their best without the need for lots of formal, posed shots - a style that wouldn't have suited us. Weddings are expensive but the one thing that you will always have to treasure are the photographs. Nicki is worth every penny and we are so grateful to her for capturing our big day and all the love and happiness that came with it.

After looking through a lot of portfolios of other photographers, we realised we were looking for someone to capture more than just pictures. We wanted the real and natural moments of our day and everyone who was there. We had an engagement shoot to get used to the camera and meet Nicki, who put us at ease from the very start. The engagement shoot and the photos we received made choosing Nicki as our wedding photographer the right choice. On the wedding day Nicki captured every part of the day and sometimes we didn't even notice she was snapping away and capturing some great moments we missed. The photos we received were amazing. Nicki really has a great eye for a true and natural photo and was a wonderful addition to our wedding day.

We met Nicki at a friend’s wedding and I knew there and then that she would be our wedding photographer (and we weren’t even engaged at this point)! She is so friendly, down to earth and chatty, she made us feel so at ease. This was exactly how we wanted to feel on our big day. We got to know Nicki a little more at our pre wedding shoot, where she guided us but also allowed us to keep it fun and natural. Having her a part of our wedding was so important and we loved that she joined our guests on the dance floor for a boogie, despite being with us all day long! The photos are simply stunning and are an amazing reminder of what a special day it was. I have recommended Nicki to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Nicki.

We spent a long time looking at all the photographers avaliable in our area before making a choice. We loved Nicki's candid approach and even moved the wedding one week as we really wanted to have Nicki! We were in contact with her every step of the way discussing the venue and just keeping her up to date on all our plans. We had an amazing engagement shoot on the beach in Bognor and it really helped us to relax before the big day. She is such a friendly, bubbly lady which really helps you feel like you are with a friend (she certainly became a friend!) and you forget that the camera is there. She took pics of both hubby and me getting ready on our wedding day which was wonderful as I really wanted a lovely pic of hubby and his mum which we are so grateful for. All our photos are stunning and we are so glad she didn't cut any out because they really mean the world to us. She beautifully captured all the important moments from the "I do's", first kiss, me bawling my eyes out ! as well as group shots and lots of the gorgeous candid ones which are treasured by all the family. She has this wonderful ability to capture things that the couple may miss or angles you wouldn't have thought of. My hubby hates having his picture taken but Nicki made him feel so relaxed, we didn't want the photos to feel like a chore and they really didn't. We made sure she was included in our day just as much as any guest and we love her so much we have had more photos by Nicki when I graduated and when we got our dog too. I couldnt recommend her more. She really will make sure you have beautiful memories to treasure forever!!!

Nicki was wonderful from start to finish, and in fact continues to be lovely as we are still in contact. We feel like we gained a friend rather than just a wedding photographer - Nicki is the kind of person who you could invite to your hen do at the last minute and just know she would get on amazingly well with all the other guests. She was very responsive and flexible right from the beginning and even arranged to Skype us from a different timezone when we first got in contact. We picked Nicki for her beautiful yet fun style but I feel strongly that part of the reason she is able to get such candid shots is because of the wonderful way she has of becoming a true part of the day - I can't imagine having had anyone else. Loads of our friends and family went out of their way to comment on how lovely she was and everyone felt at ease in her company. She even managed to get some sneaky (and gorgeous) photos of a relative who has successfully avoided photos for years! When Nicki sent through the slideshow video of our day things got so emotional as she had done such a good job with all the editing and it really felt like the story of the day had been fully captured. Then when we looked through all the photos I could not believe that one person had managed to be in so many different places at once. All of my favourite photos are the natural ones Nicki took, outside of our formally arranged ones, which was yet another reason I was so glad we made our choice. We now have countless beautiful photos and memories which will last a lifetime (and beyond!) and I would recommend Nicki unreservedly for any occasion.

We cannot have been more chuffed with having Nicki as the photographer for our wedding day! We "found" her through friends whose wedding she'd photographed and which we'd been guests at - we loved the style of her photos and how easily she fitted in to their day & we were so happy we booked her for ours too. From our first meeting we were certain we'd made the right choice - Nicki is SO easy to get along with, puts you right at ease and is smiley/jokey & warm to boot. Loads of our friends commented on how smoothly she fitted in to the day - it really was like having a friend along for the wedding - one that's really talented and takes amazing photos of you! We got tons of amazing photos from the day and would have no doubts in recommending her to anyone.
