All beautiful, because they’re raw and honest. So if you hire a wedding photographer who only takes pretty portraits and works off of shot lists, you’re missing out on that beauty. You won’t see your whole love story in your wedding gallery.

Us — We're only interested in telling real, whole love stories. Especially if those stories are full of raw emotions, true connections, and good people. You too?

Documentary Photography for Austin Weddings

Here’s the thing about love: real love — true love — it's messy. There are tears and laughter and fighting and joking, all done in the name of love.

You Should Hire Me

Because I’m a storyteller. And your love story is too important to mess around with. It should be captured with true artistry, show off your authentic personalities, and document every aspect of your wedding day.

We’ll get posed photos, sure, but the best images always happen in the in-between moments when everyone forgets I’m watching.

What i'm about

Or Hire Southern Love Studio

I’ll be honest — I’m the best in the biz. But if I had to pass on my clients to other photographers, it would be my team at Southern Love Studio.

They offer the same Nikk Nguyen artistic approach, professionalism, and style you fell in love with, except I’m not the person behind the camera.

Meet the team

Yo! I’m Nikk.

Don’t let my sleeve of tattoos or all-black wardrobe fool ya — I’m a big softie on the inside. I live for the heart-fluttering moments, stolen glances, and big emotions on display at weddings. That’s the secret to rad wedding photos, after all: vulnerability.

Sound like your vibe? Dope.
