Before every wedding day, I sit in my car cuddling with some type of latte from Starbucks and take a moment to appreciate the couple I am photographing that day. Besides meeting Jason, my hubby, photographing weddings is one of the most rewarding aspects of my life!
The experiences and friendships I have developed with my Ultimate Edge Couples is something that lasts far beyond the wedding day and that is how I believe it should be!
I am so exited you are here and I encourage you to keep scrolling to learn more about why being an Ultimate Edge Couple isn't your typical photography experience, it is so much more!
Either you're here because you're engaged and are looking for a wedding photographer or you just really love pretty images! Either way, you're in the right place! I am so glad you're here!! Stay awhile, look around, and make yourself at home!
I have had the honor to be a professional photographer for over 5 years. You would think after planning my own wedding that happened in early 2021 and capturing love stories of others that I would be weary of weddings, right?! The reality is, I have seen and photographed it all and the more that I shoot, the more I fall in love with this job! The happiness, the excitement, the details, the tears of joy, the dances with daddy, the portraits that take your breath away.... I love it all. Even after 5 years, I still can’t get over the fact that I have been trusted with preserving over 100 weddings!! I don’t take my job lightly.
I don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! I know that Ultimate Edge Couples are unique and I believe we must have a connect with one another before we can ever start photographing! Ultimate Edge Couples recognizes that if they want joyful, timeless portraits then they need more than just pretty pictures. They know they need an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with each other is determining if we are the perfect fit for each other! After getting to know each other online through emails, calls, or even a video chat, we can determine if we’re a match made in heaven. If we are, then we’ll move on to the booking process!
Yay!! You were made to be a Ultimate Edge Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! Once you decide you'd like to move forward I'll send you custom proposal where you can review your package details and pay your initial payment to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official Ultimate Edge Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started and have some fun!
After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. I thrive at helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves, so don't worry, I'll teach you everything!
Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after the first 20 minutes have gone by! Really, 20 minutes all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing this exciting time of your lives together!
Once we’re about 10 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that you're preparing properly and ready for your wedding! I love creating custom timelines for my couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding images! You know all of those stunning portraits, fun group shots with your friends, and detail shots that look like they are straight out of a magazine?? I work with all my Ultimate Edge Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! After 5 years of photographing weddings I know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!
It's finally here! Today is the day! We both show up to your wedding with our game (and party) faces on, you float through this special day and I make you feel like the king & queen that you are. This day is going to be a blur to you so I make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every couple needs while also capturing the moments in between that you might have missed in a creative & unique way. One of my most favorite parts of the day is portrait time with the newly-weds and getting to know your family and close friends!
Your day will be filled with lots of dancing, laughter, crying happy tears, and create incredible images you will cherish for generations to come.
After your wedding day is over, within 8 weeks you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS or maybe ever THOUSANDS of them! I encourage all of my Ultimate Edge Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! As soon as your gallery is delivered, you will have the option to select the images for your album (if you ordered an album!) and we can begin the customization process!
Let's Get Started!
I accept only a limited number of weddings each year and the average investment that my couples spend is about $6,500 on full day coverage with an album. All my quotes, regardless if you choose a standard or custom package, will include all of the images. I offer full day coverage which actually means full day coverage - no hourly maximums! I believe engagement sessions are a vital part of the wedding planning process which is why one is included in all my quotes, 100% complimentary!
"I met Nikki through a friend’s wedding and knew I had to have her at mine. She’s super laid back and professional, and she’s not afraid to get into a compromising position for the best angle. If there’s any specific part of yourself that you’re self conscious about, let her know up front. Let her know if you want more candids vs posed shots, or if there are pictures that you’ve seen online that you would like to recreate. She’s highly recommended, and her packages are reasonable so you won’t have to sacrifice other details of your wedding. Thanks Nikki!"
"Nikki is a FABULOUS photographer and I would highly recommend her! She has a wonderful personality that really helps you feel comfortable as she is taking your photos! She was super flexible in working with us as our bigger wedding was postponed and we hosted a micro wedding instead! We were originally getting married down in South Jersey and switched to North Jersey! She had no problem traveling at all and modified our original wedding package to meet our new vision! We just got all of our wedding photos back and they are all absolutely stunning! You should definitely check Nikki out! We look forward to working with her again next year for our big wedding celebration...one year later!!!"
It has been a pleasure to work with Nikki on our wedding day! I was referred by a friend of mine and knew immediately when I saw her work and photography style that she would be a perfect fit for us. She’s always responded quickly with any questions I had and helped me plan out a timeline for the day. This was our first time having professional shots taken so we were a bit nervous. Nikki made us feel so comfortable and made the whole process fun. She was so creative and captured the love between us beautifully. A few days after the wedding Nikki sent us a blog post on her website from our wedding day including 150 photos! We were able to immediately share it with our family and friends on social media. I can’t recommend Ultimate Edge Photography enough and I look forward to booking more shoots in the future!
"I cannot say enough great things about Nikki! She worked with me behind the scenes via email and phone to work out pricing, contract, details, etc. I am an out of state bride and she still made communicating smooth. When we met for the first time, she was awesome! She has the perfect balance of being super professional, yet warm, friendly and personable enough to make you feel like you’ve known her forever. She makes you feel at ease and makes it fun! I am 100% confident that our pictures will turn out phenomenal and I cannot wait to get them back, I am soooo eager and excited !!! Thank you Nikki - We greatly appreciate all your hard work and great ideas."
Nikki was so great to work with. She is so sweet, takes time to get to know you/the couple and is so organized with her timeline and shots and she does not miss a beat. She did both our engagement shoot (which she made so fun and comfortable that we knew we had to book her for the wedding). And she just did our wedding photography this past weekend. We woke up this morning with our blog photos and post already up for a preview of our pictures! They came out AMAZING. She was so supportive and calming all day, she made sure we got every shot that we wanted and was spot on with timing of the sunset and what pictures we could get in when. She works fast but her work is QUALITY. Her assistant Tiffany was so great with me all day and like my right hand woman. They were both amazing and I would love to use her again for shoots that I do in the future!
