Behind the Lens

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds purpose in creating and capturing love stories and their beautiful moments wherever I go.

about us

I'm Nicki

I am a nerd at heart, I find all science humor entertaining as I originally studied and received my bachelor's degree in Biology. Obsessed with saving ALL animals and my new found love of cultivating veggies and herbs! Most importantly BASIL which could be its own food group in my opinion! 

I love nothing more than spending my days soaking up the sweet moments and giggles with my littles'.  I am a blessed momma of a 2 year old little girl, Ryann and our newest edition, Roman our sweet boy!  They keep me on my toes, but wouldn't have it any other way!

I have been in the wedding industry for over 12 years now and I originally started out a florist and wedding planner, which gives me a unique approach and edge to creating photography timelines! Because of this, I can't help but LOVE all wedding florals!

Read on for a little more about me and the studio.

Hopeless romantic (and total Enneagram 1), lover of light, coffee, travel, anything silk or chiffon, and the soft, glowing colors brought to life on film. 

my favorite things:


places i've been

Maui with Scottsdale as a close second. I also love being a tourist on the central coast, I always feel people never take advantage of the beautiful things right around them. 


guilty pleasure

Buying too many cookbooks.  Obsessed with notebooks and paper planners. Watching my favorite series over and over again.  (It drives my hubby crazy!) And really good coffee every morning and Ice Tea in the afternoon.



Spending time on my deck over looking the vineyards, watching a pair of roadrunners race around the fields (yes your heard me correctly, we live in the country) and mornings with my sweet family.



Literally anything Italian + a full-bodied red. I make a killer salmon, with roasted asparagus in hazelnut oil! But my family always requests my Cranberry Orange Scones!



This guy. My husband, Tim. Believe it or not, but he is the biggest STAR WARS nerd, he was even born on "May the Fourth Be with You". He is absolutely amazing and has the most uncanny ability to make me laugh! And our two sweet nuggets, Ryann & Roman that instantly make my heart melt with the tiniest smile sent my way!


part of my job

That moment after the ceremony when my clients walk back down the aisle and they have their firsts married moments together.

about you

Our clients are seekers of connection, lovers of all things food, with a taste for adventure and wind in their hair. 

We love couples that embrace the natural elements around them, attention to details, ALL the florals, and those not afraid to run into the waves or trek through a field of weeds!
