Nikki combines her critical eye from her fine art background, with her love of storytelling in order to capture those natural fleeting moments that are shared between her couples, while also paying attention to the tiniest details - encapsulating the look and feel of the wedding day.
She loves a soft, introspective moment, just as much as she loves an adventure filled with laughter and color. She especially loves shooting film - and being green!
She offers digital portrait sessions, as well as sessions with her gorgeously unique handmade brass and wood large format camera, to deliver the most luscious imagery for that special portrait.
Thistle and Twine Atelier is based in Chicago, but travels well.
