Fun, FRIENDLY and fabulous photography by Norwich wedding photographer Nicki, covering Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire
I’m a Norfolk Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer, working all over Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
I live in a really pretty village in Norfolk, not far off the A11 (so I can scoot to most places fast!), in an old, beamed cottage. It’s a nightmare to dust and creaks wherever you walk, but at least my kids will never be able to sneak in too late! My son, who’s at the UEA and daughter who’s doing A levels, both live with me.
It all started over 10 years ago, when my best friend and fellow photographer was booked to shoot a wedding & asked me to come along & help out... things pretty much snowballed for both of us and we're now both full time wedding photographers. It's my ideal job, I literally couldn't think of anything else I'd rather do & love each & every wedding I shoot.
*Taking photos* - My biggest hobby has ALWAYS been photography, from when I was right young (yes I know everyone says that, but it’s true, honest).
*Reading* I love reading real books (Kindles are for holiday packing), the more random the fiction, the thicker the book, the better - has anyone else but me read Stephen Donaldson's Thomas Covenant series?!
*Water* I love water – being on it, near it and even in it, in the summer, paddling rivers on my inflatable kayak.
*Spring* – I wish it was spring ALL year round, except for when it’s autumn & everything’s so colourful, and winter, when it’s frosty & snowy...
*binge watching series whilst editing* Game of Thrones, oh yep. And also Jane the Virgin (I LOVE Rogelio), Stranger Things, The OA, Outlander, Lucifer, Santa Clarita Diet, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Grimm ... I sense a theme here? (Although the Marvellous Mrs Maisel, This is Us and Line of Duty break that theme up a little!)
*Exploring places* - on foot if I can, in a soft top car preferably ;) I've recently got into Geocaching too - a great way to get out for a walk in some lovely places and find hidden stuff ;)
*Stationery & stuff* - MAMBI - look at your peril!
*Pets* We have one 10 year old stroppy tortie & a 3 month old tabby kitten - it's like having a toddler in the house again, need eyes in the back of my head! I love animals, and live in a dog loving village so a dog is definitely on the cards too!
Well, I'm extremely sneaky, but in a nice way - I'll shoot through foliage and round corners and generally blend into the background so you won't know I'm there...
I've BAGS of experience and nothing fazes me - really, nothing - and I have to be honest and say semi naked groomsmen getting ready are one of the perks of the job ;) I never want to give up shooting weddings because I love them so much - and as long as you lovely people keep booking me, I'm shooting!
I work very professionally and discretely on the day – I document the day naturally as it unfolds and your guests will barely know I’m there, but I’ll get great photos of them. I’m definitely not a bossy photographer, and can usually get those groups together without having to raise my voice (I just let someone else do the job for me – that’s what best men are for!). All the equipment I use is of high professional standard and I am also fully insured and have multiple back up procedures.
