North Farm Engagement Session | Starkville, MS | Mimi + Chad

engagement

Mimi + Chad,

Photographing the two of you felt like hanging out with friends. I think we laughed at least as much as we talked during your engagement session, sharing stories of awkwardness and human realities. As your season of college and life as fiancés come to a close, I hope you enjoy every minute of it, while looking forward with great delight for all the is to come.

Until May,

Nikki

Engagement Session | Columbus Riverwalk | Savannah + Marq

engagement

Dear Savannah + Mark,

I don’t think our time  during your engagement session could have gone any better. The sunlight encompassed the two of you as you laughed and loved in one anther’s arms. We talked of movies, both good and not so good ones, and favorite foods. You told me how you were planning a graduation party, and of your two beloved dogs. Our time together made me even more excited for your wedding day.  I know it will be a wonderful celebration.

Until then,

Nikki

Mississippi State University | Engagement Session | Taylor + Adam

engagement

Dear Taylor + Adam,

When I think back on your engagement session, what comes to mind is laughter. What could have been a stressful end to a long day was instead a time of joy, despite dark clouds.  Thank you for trusting me so implicitly. I appreciate more than I can express. The season you are in right now is such a crazy one: your time is split between two cities, new jobs, friends getting married, and your own wedding. My hope is that when you look back on these photos, it reminds you also of the sweetness of this time as well, even among the crazy.

Until July,

Nikki

Lifestyle Engagement Session | Starkville, MS | Natalie + Brad

engagement

Dear Natalie + Brad,

I had the best time with you guys. Spending time with you two of you felt more like hanging with friends rather than working for clients. Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home! I hope these last few months before you become husband and wife pass quickly for you – I know you’re so ready to begin your lives together. 🙂

Untili then,

Nikki

Chandler + Carew | Engagement | Private Estate, West Point, MS

engagement

Dear Chandler + Carew,

I’m at a loss of words when it comes to your engagement session. Sure,  I could talk about the beauty of the locations that speak for themselves, the chill that reddened cheeks and encouraged more cuddles. But more than that, what comes to mind is the love and care you have not only for one another, but for all you interact with. It’s so evident by how overwhelmed with joy people are for the two of you, how excited they are for the two of you to become husband and wife. That speaks volumes to me, and having to honor of photographing your first portraits together, well…. I cannot thank you enough for that. I so enjoyed our time together. I felt more like a gathering of friends, than a meeting with clients.

Cheers to you both, and wishing you the Merriest of Christmases!

North Farm | Starkville, MS Engagement Session | Hannah + Jacob

engagement

Dear Hannah + Jacob,

Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your engagement session. My time with you, though brief and wrapped in heat, was so lovely. You two are splendid together. Your love and adoration for one another flows from you, with each hug, tender kiss, and touch of the hand. I love how you choose fields of cotton for your location; how it’s a part of who you are as a couple. I wish you all the best, and hope your last few months before you become husband and wife are swift and sweet.

Cheers to you both,

Nikki

Tishomingo State Park | Engagement Session | Mandi + Drew

engagement

Mandi + Drew,

Photographing the two of you was such a delight. You’re comfortable with each other, and even in front of the camera despite your great insistence that you are”awkward.” Believe me, I’ve seen awkward, and it is not you. 🙂 Thank you for being so easy to work with and so gracious. I appreciate you making the drive to the park, being willing to navigate around a few hikers, and enjoying one another’s company, even in the evening heat.

I hope you guys love the photos, and I cannot wait until your wedding this fall.

Until then,

Nikki

MS Agriculture + Forestry Museum | Engagement Session | Jenessa + Derrick

engagement

Jenessa + Derrick,

I feel like I should start off by saying the glaringly obvious: you two are beautiful people who become even more stunning when together. Jenessa, you are so fun, so full of beauty, of love, and life. I can’t get over that the reason you first noticed him at the gym was because it seemed like steam was coming off his head because he was working out so hard. I love that a work out session together became a walk, which lead to ice cream all so that the conversation didn’t have to end. Derrick, the way you adore your bride-to-be is so perfect, and she is nothing short of radiant in your gaze.

I cannot wait for your wedding.

Until then,

Nikki

When Jenessa suggested that they do their session at the MS Agriculture + Forestry Museum , I was thrilled. Because it closed at 5pm, we scheduled the shoot for 4pm last Friday thinking the space would be ours (because who goes to a museum on a Friday afternoon?!). Turns out we were wrong in our thinking and not only was there a wedding party their prepping, but there was also a field trip for a bunch of 10ish year olds. That being said, Jenessa + Derrick took it all in stride and totally rocked it.
