Hewlett Barn | Starkville, MS Wedding | Natalie + Brad

Mississippi

Dear Natalie and Brad,
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,
Nikki

MSU Chapel of Memories + The GridIron | Starkville, MS Wedding | Taylor + Adam

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.

Cheers to you both,

Nikki

Bridal Session | Old Waverly Mansion | Natalie

bridal

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

Newborn Session | Memphis, TN | Rémy

baby

Oh Rémy,

You are a heart throb. Your mom, dad, and big sister adore you, your Dede is obsessed with you. And it’s no wonder. Your smile and giggle are so pure and sweet. During your session, you showed me how strong you are with all your kicks and moves, and showed me how you’re learning to hold your head up. You are loved, little man! And it is such a privilege to watch you grow.

Much Love,

Nikki

Jiggetts Home Wedding | Canton, Mississippi | Grace + Thomas

photography

Dear Grace + Thomas,

I feel rather at a loss for words when I think of what to say about your wedding. To say it was familial does not describe the tenderness. To say it was simple does not explain the thoughtfulness. What set the tone for your day was love, love for God, love for each other, love for one another. And that made it all the sweeter to be a part of. I hope you have enjoyed every minute as husband and wife, and I cannot thank you enough for letting me be a part of your joyous union.

Cheers to you both,

Nikki

Your wedding day was such a wonderful celebration of families joining together. It was full of heart felt love and affection, everything from all the work that had gone into making sure the chapel and hall were beautifully decorated, to those who came to witness your union. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it. I hope your first month as husband and wife have been everything you dreamed they would be.

Cheers to you,

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

Jiggetts Home Engagement Session | Canton, MS | Grace + Thomas

Mississippi

Dear Grace + Thomas,

From the first phone, I was excited to work with the two of you. Everything from your story, to how you two interact with each other, to where you are getting married is a source of delight for me. Grace, that fact that you had decided to not get married makes Thomas’ persistence all the more impressive. And his respect for you is evident. It seems pretty clear that he knew you were the one for him early on. However, out of his love and devotion to you, he waited a year and a day to ask you to be his wife, as you had requested.  Simply put, you two are marvelous together. I hope these last few months of your engagement is a sweet time, and that these photos bless you, both now and in the years to come.

Thank you so much for allowing me to be your photographer! I cannot wait for June.

Until then,

Nikki
