Even though the heat was sweltering, the two of you were as cool as cucumbers. There was so drama, no moments of panic, just delight at pledging your lives to each other in front of your closest family and friends. Thank you so much for allowing me to be the one to document your beautiful wedding.  I hope your first few weeks together have been all you hoped they would be and more.
Cheers to you,

Mississippi

Dear Taylor + Adam,

Working with the two of you was such a delight. Taylor, you could not have been more easy going. Even though the it poured the morning of your wedding, and the weeks leading up to it had been absolutely insane, you remained calm, cool, and collected throughout the whole day. And Adam, your whole face lit up once you saw Taylor for the first time. Your day was truly beautiful, and I am honored to have been able to document such a momentous occasion.  I hope your first few weeks as husband and wife have been absolutely beautiful.

Bridal Session | Old Waverly Mansion | Natalie

Dear Natalie,

As I was photographing you for your bridal session, one of the things I thought of was how hard it would be to wait to share these photos. I think everything about them is beautiful, not because of the place or dress, but because of who you are. You are such a joy and I am so thrilled for you and Brad. I hope you had a wonderful time on your honeymoon and I cannot wait to share your wedding photos with you.

Cheers to you,
Nikki

Dear Kristen,

Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph you and your family. It’s so intimidating to photograph another photographer, but I’d photograph you and your crew any time, any where. This season you are in of waiting for your child is no doubt a grueling one, but your graceful perseverance will result in a glorious reward. Hold on. And while you hold on, I hope the time you have as a family of four is full of joy.

Dear Mandy,

Thank you so letting me photograph you. I know it’s no small task to meet with a photographer right around dinner time in the middle of the week. Your boys are smart and fun, and watching Charlie and Robert interact with John David was so endearing.

I hope your summer is off to a wonderful start!

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

Senior Session | The Cotton District | Lawson Joy

Mississippi

Dear Lawson Joy,

First off,  congratulations are in order. You have wrapped up your final year of high school and have done so with such grace. During our time together, your mama couldn’t help but brag about the talent you possess on the field. She, and your dad, are so proud of you.  As you transition into the new phase of life, I truly wish you all the best. It’s exciting, a little nerve-wracking, and going to be so full of adventure.

You’re going to do wonderfully, and I wish you nothing but the best.

Cheers to you,

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
