A romantic backyard micro wedding in East Austin

As a result of a global pandemic, a small, backyard micro wedding is now considered to be desirable and romantic rather than seen as something that was thrown together last minute. I have seen so many couples plan some of the most stunning weddings in the beauty and comfort of a backyard setting. A backyard micro wedding can be so intimate, romantic, and even cost-effective. This means that more resources can go towards other aspects of the day, like food and florals. That being said, Clair and Michael’s backyard micro wedding was one of my absolute favorite weddings to photograph!

A flexible planning process and a truly special day

Because of COVID, Clair and Michael were forced to plan and re-plan their wedding three times! They finally settled on a backyard micro wedding with a garden vibe, surrounded by their close friends and family. They found a beautiful AirBnb in East Austin that was the perfect setting for their special day. Because they had to cut their guest list, they were able to really upgrade their food menu. And boy oh boy, did Royal Fig ever deliver a delicious spread! This day was truly celebratory - every single person was so delighted to partake in Clair and Michael’s special day. 

Be flexible, relax, and enjoy the ride

Clair was one of those brides who always dreamed of her wedding day! She basically had it all planned out before she and Michael even got engaged. Having to plan and re-plan her wedding so many times taught her that being flexible is necessary, regardless of what happens. She looks back at her wedding day with such fondness and joy and hardly remembers any of the negatives. It turns out, having a super small and intimate backyard micro wedding was exactly what both of them wanted!

Do you need someone to capture all the memories of your special day? Let’s make it happen!

Talented Wedding Vendors


Before you jump into the photos, check out what this couple had to say about working with me:

"It goes without saying that Nikk is one of the best wedding photographers in town, but here it goes anyway! We hired Nikk for engagement + wedding photos. As we had to re-plan our wedding several times due to COVID, it was stressful to say the least, but this aspect of the wedding plan never changed. Not only was Nikk super easy to work with day of, his turn around time for photos is unheard of and we love them! Every person I've shown the photos to comments on how beautiful they were and how worth it it was to spend extra in our budget to hire a photographer of Nikk's caliber. We now have these gorgeous and timeless photos to look at for the rest of time, we couldn't be more grateful!"
