Hey there! I’m Nik, based in Brighton, on the south coast of the UK. I find hearing about people’s beautiful love stories truly captivating, which is why I love photographing couples and weddings!


What to Expect

Your special day is about you; it’s not about me. My style is relaxed and unobtrusive — I want to tell the story of your wedding by being as unnoticed as possible, without interfering with the natural flow of the day. My role on your special day is to document the emotions and the moments which make your wedding unique! A few posed photographs will inevitably form part of that rhythm, and when those moments arrive I always want to keep them fun and light — whether that’s navigating through group shots like a champion or telling you terrible jokes to make you laugh during a few Bride & Groom photos! The rest of the day will be full of spontaneous moments of love, laughter, and warmth. That’s what I want to capture.

Who Even Is Nik?

A sensational question! I live in Brighton, where I’ve spent most of my life. I love the city, however, am so grateful to be living by the sea and have the Sussex downs on my doorstep. I enjoy the outdoors and when I’m not photographing weddings, I’m passionate about travelling. I love the beautiful and eclectic landscapes of isolated, remote locations and, whenever I can I’ll be travelling to these places to find peace and happiness. I got into all this during school and college where I was fortunate enough to be encouraged by my parents and teachers to embrace whatever strange hobby I decided to take up next. One day, that was photography — and it stuck. I studied it for many years, learning about fantastic photographers that have been and gone, many that are still with us, developing my own pictures in the darkroom, and learning how to edit photos. I never really put down my camera from that time! At my heart, I’m a big geek! I enjoy technology and use it alongside my love of art, photography, and design to try and improve my work and give my clients the best photographs and experience possible.

But We Hate Having Our Photo Taken

Yep, me too. Maybe that's why I hide behind the camera! But don't worry — I got you. I know how it feels. And I assure you; you're not awkward, you've just had awkward photos taken. So when it comes to your wedding day, I look to make you feel as comfortable in front of the camera as possible. I do that by not getting too involved. I want to be a part of your day, not dictate it. You'll be surprised how quickly you forget that I'm there! And when it comes to taking some couple photos, think of it more you're hanging out with your new pal, Nik. And I've just brought my camera along with me. There are no crazy poses I'm going to ask you to do — trust me, it's easier than you think!

We Have So Many More Questions!

I'd expect nothing less! Drop me a message and we can chat!


We don't know where to begin with how thankful we are for these. They're beautiful, funny and we barely noticed you taking most of them. We're so grateful.
