This bohemian elopement was nothing short of incredible. Brittany & Matt opted for a small elopement with just them, a coordinator, officiant and myself. I felt honored to be part of such an intimate event and to capture the evident love between this bride and groom. The day started with a torrential downpour, but luckily it cleared up just in time! I was so glad the weather had improved by the time I arrived and started shooting, because the ceremony would be taking place outside in Drippings Springs, Texas.
Lucky Arrow Retreat is such an amazing new venue. Brittany and Matt both got ready in the cabins at the Retreat, which gave me some wonderful opportunities to take a few great photos of them in the modern and accommodating cabins. They both looked stunning in their classy suit and dress, finished off with a beautiful bohemian bridal bouquet.
A super sweet ceremony commenced, with a stunning view as the backdrop. They literally tied a knot to signify the start of their life together. They both had written beautiful personalized vows for each other. Matt had a lot of tears throughout the ceremony, and who could blame him?
After the ceremony, we took time to capture some amazing photos of the brand-new Mr. and Mrs.! Afterwards, they sat down to eat together in a wonderfully set up picnic. The grazing table from Grazeology was unbelievable! I will definitely be getting one for myself when the time comes!
This elopement wouldn't be complete without a first dance in the moon light, and a walk through the lantern-lit trees. I think Brittany & Matt gave the word "romantic" a whole new meaning with this wonderful elopement.

Before you jump into the photos, check out what this couple had to say about working with me:
"Where do I start… BOOK HIM NOW! Seriously hurry up!
The second I saw Nikk’s photos I knew he was who I needed to capture my day and I couldn’t imagine anyone else doing it. He is top notch and our photos turned out exactly as I had imagined yet somehow even better?! The biggest takeaway from your event are the moments captured in your photos- don’t trust that to just anyone. Nikk is professional, funny, and SO easy to work with. Let’s face it- having pictures taken can be awkward and he made it easy and dare I say FUN?
Honestly, I wish I could do it all over or maybe have another event just so I can hire Nikk again. Thank you Nikk- every time we look at our photos we will think of you and how grateful we are for your dedication to our special day!"
