When I decided to shoot this bohemian vineyard wedding I knew it was going to be incredible, but I had absolutely no idea just how amazing this night would turn out! I can't wait to tell you all about it!
Some would say it was by chance that Stephanie and Mark met, but I like to believe it was fate that had their offices placed next to each other at work. Talk about the perfect set up! It was just a matter of time before these two would fall madly in love with each other.
Fast forward in time and these two love birds are getting ready to say I do at Stephanie's parents vineyard just outside of Austin, Texas. They originally wanted to build a winery in time for the wedding but who has time to wait to construct a building when love is calling? So, setting up an exquisitely beautiful tent was the perfect alternative. I think you'll agree when you see the photos!
Just to give you an idea of how amazing these people are; Stephanie's parents are actually planning on turning their gorgeous property into a wedding venue in the future with the proceeds being donated to a charity they've set up to battle a specific form of cancer that claimed the lives of a few of their beloved parents and grandparents.
Stephanie and Mark's receptions was, by far, one of the most amazing and captivating receptions I've ever had the privilege of shooting. It was easy to see the amount of attention, care and thought that was put into each and every detail of the evening. One thing in particular was the insanely gorgeous florals above the main table! When I first laid eyes on those stunning wedding florals I couldn't believe my eyes.
Set against the backdrop of opulence and beauty was my favorite part of the entire evening; two people so enamored with each other that their surroundings failed to compete with their extravagant love.

Before you jump into the photos, here's what this happy couple had to say about working with me:
"Nikk was a dream to work with! We discovered him by random happenstance, and were immediately drawn to his talent and unique perspective. After meeting with him, we knew he was "the one" because of his laid-back attitude, obvious passion for his craft, and his genuine interest in our story. In the months leading up to the wedding, he was ultra responsive to all my many (many!) questions, and then he navigated the craziness of the Big Day effortlessly - a true professional. We were blown away by how quickly he had a "sneak peak" of our photos ready, as well as the final photographs. But most of all, we are thrilled with how everything turned out - he perfectly captured both the rawest, most emotional moments and the FUN of the evening. Thank you, Nikk - we will treasure these photos forever!"
