Thank You Once Again For The WONDERFUL Photos

Hi Nikki,  Sally and I would like to thank you for the wonderful photos of our Wedding at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast. Your photos certainly captured a very happy and joyous occasion not only for both Sally and myself, but for our four girls and our parents. It may have been a small intimate wedding but there sure was a lot of joy on the day.  Thank you once again for the wonderful photos of our wedding day

She Captured Our Day PERFECTLY

Nikki is a very efficient and professional photographer. She captured our day perfectly and was everything we needed. From having water for after our ceremony to fixing one of the girls dresses. We received sneak peaks 2 days after the wedding and absolutely love them. 10/10 recommend Nikki Blades Photography.

You made our “Special Day” ” EXTRA Special”!

Hi Nikki, Clare and I just wanted to touch base with you. Hope you are doing well. It is 12 months tomorrow that we had the pleasure of receiving such a professional, fun and stress free service from you on our wedding day. You captured everything beautiful about the location, our family and friends who attended and most of all my beautiful wife. We will continue to promote your service at any opportunity. The day was extra special, as you were going about things seamlessly in the background (we have heard about some horror in-your-face-photographer stories) and the final product… Read More “You made our “Special Day” ” EXTRA Special”!”

Right from our first meeting I knew Nikki was the photographer for us. She had so much experience and I knew the day would run smoothly with her being the photographer….and I was right!

Posing for Photos was FUN and Stress-Free

I could not recommend Nikki more. From our first meeting, Nikki took on board our requests and made posing for the photos fun and stress free.

Alexandra + Noel - Marburg - 22.04.2017

It Was Such A STRESS FREE Experience

We had the best day ever! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! You were a pleasure to work with, and we had so many guests comment on how fantastic you were too.

She captured wonderful CANDID moments which was exactly what we wanted

Nikki’s fun personality was an asset on our wedding day. We wanted to be ourselves and we felt very relaxed around her.

We would have no hesitations in recommending Nikki and her photos speak for themselves

Kim + Andy - Fortitude Valley

The photos are AMAZING, encapturing exactly what we wanted, but much better!

From the moment we contacted Nikki by email, she responded promptly and in such a friendly manner to make us feel so welcome. We met her and she thoroughly researched exactly the types of photos and atmosphere we wished to create. Nikki was familiar with our chosen site in a local park and very enthusiastic. Being a slightly older couple, we wanted to incorporate the beautiful natural setting and not so many closeups! The resulting photos are amazing, encapturing exactly what we wanted, but much better. Nikki is super-organised and managed to get everyone at the right place at the… Read More “The photos are AMAZING, encapturing exactly what we wanted, but much better!”

Nikki Blades went ABOVE and beyond

Nikki Blades went above and beyond! Not only a fantastic photographer for a fantastic price, but she was also so helpful on the day! Assisting the groomsmen with button hole flowers, calming the bride, fetching water and provisions. Plus the photos are fantastic! Very natural, catching little moments rather than forced smiles and poses! Super fun and bubbly personality, and very easy to get along with! Loved her!

Bianca + Daniel - Dayboro

I KNEW we were in safe hands

Nikki from Nikki Blades Photography was AMAZING!!! Right from when we booked Nikki, I knew we were in safe hands. Between dealing with me stressing via email and doing her job with other clients, Nikki was always there for me. On the day, Nikki was the one lacing up my dress as my bridesmaid had no idea what she was doing. Nikki was the one calming me down when things didn’t go right on the day. I was worried about what I looked like in the photos, so Nikki would show me photos throughout the day, and if I said… Read More “I KNEW we were in safe hands”

Even better then I could ever DREAM of

“Nikki was absolutely incredible. She was the most friendly, kind and lovely person we had the pleasure to meet. Nothing was too hard, and she made us feel like the most special people on the planet.

Even better then I could ever dream of. Thank you so much Nikki. We could not imagine our wedding day without you xxxx”
