Thistle + Twine Atelier began as an artist’s vision, wanting to combine wedding photography with her love for film portraiture, handmade arts, and anything with a vintage flare.

Nikki Segarra has spent years perfecting her photographic style, which combines fine art with documentary photojournalism. She loves to capture those special, fleeting moments that are shared between her couples, and also seeks to encapsulate the look and feel of the wedding day, focusing on even the tiniest detail.

Having an MFA background and a love for film photography, Nikki has been able to offer “vintage” portrait sessions with her handmade brass and wood large format camera. After taking a class in bookbinding, she began creating keepsake boxes as gifts, and soon realized how perfect they would be as heirloom boxes for those special wedding day treasures. She relishes in bringing these three interests together to create a unique wedding service for her clients.

When Nikki's not photographing weddings and portraiture, she spends her time making art and exploring local cafes. She loves listening to music and watching film. More than anything, she enjoys spending time with her adorable Shiba Inu puppy.
