As a wedding photographer, I know that plenty of people feel awkward in front of the camera. They aren’t sure what to do, or maybe they don’t feel confident in the way they’re going to photograph – for lots of people, I’m the first professional photographer they’ve ever worked with. I actually love it when people tell me this! Creating a comfortable environment where a couple can relax is a huge value for me, and once you’ve seen someone move from nervousness to having fun – posing, or forgetting about the camera altogether – well, it’s addictive. That’s where the magic happens.
Naturals in Front of the Camera
That was the story for this urban outdoor engagement shoot in Austin. In her own words, Sepeideh said “My husband and I had never taken professional pictures before and were very nervous. Nikk made us feel completely at ease. I couldn’t be happier with our photos!” This couple had such joyful energy that I knew they would be total naturals. Sure enough, working on this urban outdoor engagement shoot in Austin with them was so fun! Their personalities took over and carried the shoot – you can see how playful they were, dancing down the street and making each other laugh.
Urban Outdoor Engagement Shoot in Austin, Texas
For Sepeideh and Mario, I knew that an urban outdoor engagement shoot would be the perfect setting for them to forget their nerves and just enjoy being together. Walking down the street, sitting in the park, and exploring the city – sometimes the simplest things create the most memorable moments. Plus, this couple has an effortless cool that just suits the city! I loved taking these photos, and it was so fun to see them again and have the privilege of photographing their wedding, too.

Before you jump into the photos, check out what this couple had to say about working with me:
“I spent months looking for a wedding photographer and as soon as I came across Nikk’s website, I knew he was the perfect photographer for us!
Nikk was our engagement and wedding photographer and every picture turned out absolutely beautiful! My husband and I had never taken professional pictures before and were very nervous. Nikk made us feel completely at ease.
I couldn’t be happier with our photos. I was so taken aback by how many of the photos I loved that I have been having a hard time picking which ones to print and use for our wedding album.
Our engagement and wedding photos will be memories that will last a lifetime and I am so happy that we picked Nikk!”
