"Striking a balance between professionalism and friendliness is hard but Nikki absolutely nails it! I chose Nikki because at the wedding fayre, there were numerous photographers jumping at you and being quite “in your face” and pushy. Nikki however was at her stand smiling – much more relaxed and approachable. We luckily booked her just 8 months before our wedding and she regularly kept in touch, kept us updated, asked for updates etc. Throughout those 9 months, she ensured that we knew exactly what we could expect and we felt so at ease about the day.
On the day, it was like she was a guest at our wedding. She was easily weaving between everyone taking outstanding candid shots at the reception, talking with people and making sure she was taking all the group pictures we’d asked for. We’d obviously forgotten by the day exactly what we’d asked for but Nikki had it wrote down with her so she wasn’t going to let us forget!
Within a matter of weeks after our honeymoon, Nikki called us in to the office and took us through the photo’s which she’d put together in a DVD. The pictures are absolutely amazing from our big day. Nikki really captured everything and more. The photo album is also definitely worth getting – the quality is outstanding. When planning a wedding, there’s so many bits that can be stressful but thanks to Nikki, our photography was actually an enjoyable experience!
Highly recommend – we will be bothering her for every future event (as will the whole family).
Em and Alex, September 2017
For us choosing the right photographer was very important, me and my husband are not the type to pose for photos and often shy away from having our photo taken, so to us finding a photographer which made us feel at ease and understood this was a must! Needless to say from the moment we met Nikki we instantly felt at ease and began to feel more relaxed at our pre-wedding shoot, which made us feel even more excited for our wedding day as we knew what to expect.
On our wedding day Nikki was incredible, everything we had asked for was achieved, nothing too big or too small. Nikki also suggested some of her own ideas which we instantly loved.
During the day Nikki was able to take all her photos and at times we barely even noticed she was there! Guests commented on how friendly she was and how they also felt at ease as nothing was forced, which allowed for some amazing natural photos being taken. We loved having Nikki as our photographer and will be using her again whenever the occasion arises. Thank you for everything you did for us.”
Jayde and Matthew Quin, 15th April 2017
"Getting the right photographer is one of the most important decisions to snap the wedding memories and we certainly made a great decision in using Nikki. Her professionalism and experience really shone through, she blended into the background on the day to discreetly take all the family and friend snaps that we requested and got some great action shots. The wedding albums she then created for us went well beyond our expectations, with high quality designs and a great finish. I would highly recommend Nikki for any occasion. We'll certainly be using her services again in the future!! Thank you so much Nikki - you really made our day!"
Lucy & Jason, March 2017
"Nikki photographed our wedding in April and was fantastic. She was brilliant, from the first appointment, email communication, our pre wedding shoot, to the big day. Nikki was helpful, friendly and professional throughout. It also helps that she's such a lovely person and so easy to get along with and have a laugh with! We were so happy with everything Nikki did before we even saw the photos! Of course the pictures were brilliant and really captured the day, we loved them so much we bought an album which Nikki put together beautifully. We are just so happy we chose Nikki and couldn't recommend her more highly."
Susannah & James, April 2017
"Nikki was fantastic on the day - she caught everything on film (if she still uses film?!) - yet she was very discreet and for a lot of the time we didn't even realise she was there! She arranged the guests perfectly for group shots without the hours of organisation that sometimes happens on these occasions. And the photos are superb - exactly what we wanted. We have all the still shots on USB that we've copied into our phones (Nikki gave us two versions: high resolution for printing and low resolution for social media) as well as a slideshow on DVD. Perfect, thank you so much Nikki for helping make our day so special. I would have absolutely no hesitation at all in recommending Nikki."
Trevor & Patsy, September 2017
"Dear Nikki, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful wedding photos. You captured the wedding and reception so beautifully and the puddle shot is just lovely. Thank you also for your patience with the dress drama.!! It was such a pleasure meeting you and I wish you every continued success with Nikki pix."
Kim & Colin, Parents of the bride, September 2017.
"From the very first moment we met Nikki we thought she was lovely not pushy at all. Such a professional at what she does, she was brilliant suggesting ideas about the photography for our wedding. We didn't want a traditional package, we were also on a budget! Nikki was very happy to accommodate. Even when we changed our mind half way through where we wanted to get married, it was never too much trouble. Nikki was just brilliant. On our wedding day, Nikki made all our guests feel very relaxed, she also didn't mess about getting the photos we wanted! The photos are just perfect, capturing our special day. If your wanting a fab photographer then Nikki is your lady. We can't thank her enough."
Lucy & Alistair, 2016
"My husband and I would just like to say a massive thank you to Nikki for capturing our son's Christening Day. The pictures are more than we could have hoped for and we have no idea how we are going to choose which ones to put on our wall! Nikki's communication was excellent from the first port of contact and from the moment she walked into our home we were at ease. Nikki was professional but approachable throughout the day and nothing was too much trouble! The guests also commented on her friendly persona and how relaxed the photo taking was. We would highly recommend Nikki to anybody looking for a photographer and will definitely be using her again."
Mel Manners, June 2017
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Nikki pix for her fantastic work at my son and daughter in laws wedding. I have had the pleasure of knowing Nikki and experiencing her wonderful work and her personality before and she did not let us down she managed to capture a truly special day and some of the more natural shots were amazing!! Nikki u truly are a star !!."
Debbie, Mother of the Groom, April 2017
"We hired Nikki for a photoshoot in a local children's hospice to get some shots for use in publications and on our website. Nikki was professional, but also a fun and relaxed presence around the children. The hospice environment could be a daunting one for a photographer, but Nikki's approach was so warm and friendly that parents and children immediately felt at ease with her. The photos themselves were exactly to our brief, which was admittedly demanding! We've ended up with a brilliant range of photos that we can't wait to use on our website. Thanks a lot Nikki, you're the best!."
"A picture paints a thousand words. On our wedding day Nikki Hirst you captured moments in time and memories that will last forever. Through your photographs we can relive our special day and also see some of the things that we didn't see. You were calm and fun and managed to get everyone organised. We knew you were there but also forgot you were there which was the perfect balance. You captured some amazing shots including the dog poo on the wedding cake lol. Thank you for being there."
Gail Mark and K9 Billy xx. June 2017
"Our very special day in York was completed by our photographer nikki pix who with her local knowledge and her guidance took photography to an amazing level both katie and myself now have the perfect album and memories and we would recommend her."
Katie & John, September 2017.
"Nikki captured our special day on 31/12/2016 and we can’t thank her enough. She is so lovely and very talented. From Nikki arriving she was so friendly and made us feel at ease. We hardly knew she was there throughout the day but has captured everything. My favourites are my dad’s face when he sees me for the first time in my dress and Marc’s face when we are walking down the aisle. Those are the moments that you don’t think of but Nikki did which I'm so grateful for. The official ones that we asked for are amazing and the natural ones are so special, I love it when we are just looking at each other smiling. Everyone at the wedding said how lovely Nikki was and how amazing all the photos are. xxx"
Zoe & Marc, December 2016.
"Nikki was the photographer for our wedding last year. She was brilliant. Ahead of the wedding she took time to make sure we both felt comfortable and to understand what we wanted. At the wedding, Nikki took hundreds of photos and it never felt intrusive to the day. There are so many fantastic pics we struggled to pick just a few to print out. A year on we can look through the pictures and remember a great day that Nikki captured perfectly. Thanks Nikki!!"
Kate & Pete, September 2016.
"Nikki spent the whole of our wedding day capturing all the little moments one might miss in the whirlwind of the day, from early morning hair and makeup to the first dance and everything in between.. The thing is, we don't know how she did it. Some kind of invisible cloak perhaps? Because you never see her unless she wants to be seen! And from the first chat with the Photo Ninja herself, where she is open to a million ideas from the bride and groom to be (but just as able to suggest them when Wedding Brain causes you to draw a blank!), we knew she was our marital paparazzo! The results, a superbly finished album and disc of the hundreds of pictures from which it was narrowed down, speak for themselves. Stunning work, a visual feast to remember the actual feast, tears, laughter, posh frocks and silly moments all. We couldn't be happier."
Andy & Amy.
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing such a fantastic job. We are over the moon with our wedding photos and so pleased that we chose you! You made us and our guests relaxed throughout, nothing felt forced and we got some lovely natural shots to cherish forever. Could not recommend enough. Thank you Nikki."
Vickie & Matt.
"What an amazing photographer!! Nikki thank you so much for capturing our wedding day on 27/8/16 it truely was magical! You are very good at what you do and our wedding album and canvas show that, me and philip are over the moon with what you have done for us and we would recommend you in a heartbeat.

"We just wanted to say thank you for the great work you have done. Everyone we have shown the photos to say that the are fantastic so thank you. You managed to picture the day perfectly and we will treasure the photos and the memories you captured. Thank you."
Laura & Andy.
"Nikki captured our special day back in May 2016. We can't thank her enough she did an fantastic job with some excellent picture that we will treasure forever. She was lovely and so professional, when pictures were taken we did not even know she was there. When we looked though the pictures for the first time we loved the fact she has got so many action shot pictures of out big day, of ALL the guests enjoying themselves. We would recommend Nikki to anyone and all our wedding guests commented how good she was too.
Thank you Nikki, for doing such an amazing job."
Amanda & Paul, May 2016.
"Nikki did the wedding photos for Andy and I on 1 August and was delightful to work with. She took time to get to know us beforehand and put us at ease with a pre wedding shoot; the photos of which are fantastic. On our wedding day Nikki guided us through the formal shots we'd requested and then captured loads of special images as unobtrusively as possible. We are absolutely delighted with the results. The photos are excellent, and the way they are presented in our album looks fantastic. We are so pleased with the results and would highly recommend Nikki."
Ali & Andy.
"We have some amazing wedding photos that are creative and capture the laughter and joy we had at our wedding due to Nikki taking some great photos. The lovely special touch was the lovely box that keeps our USB stick safe with all our photos on and not forgetting the photo place names in which Nikki took copies of photos of our guests as toddlers and made them into a Polaroid photo!. Nikki went above and beyond to make our wedding day one day never to forget!"
Kathy & George.
"Hi Nikki, We just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful job you have done. The album is amazing and we love it. It's a lovely final present to ourselves that we can look at and look back on the day for years to come. We're really looking forward to showing it off to friends and family. You managed to capture all the elements of the day with a calm and welcome presence. Looking at the album and watching the slideshow with the ceremony music transports us back to the day and helps us relive it from start to finish again."
Tom & Lauren.
"What can I say about Nikki Pix, I couldn't recommend a photographer more if I tried. So lovely, professional, accommodating the list is endless. I would defiantly recommend for anyone wanting a photographer, and if we ever need a photographer again we will look no further than Nikki Pix. The most important thing for us was feeling comfortable as we are not great fans of posing for pictures but Nikki made us feel so relaxed and at ease and made sure we got the most wonderful pictures to remember our special day. Thanks so much Nikki xx"

"Nikki has produced a brilliant set of memories for Sarah, Martin & the whole family. She was unobtrusive, professional and helpful all day. Everyone felt comfortable & relaxed, judging by some of the photos the subjects didn't even know she was there. The service after the day was as good as that throughout the ceremonies. Super!!".
Terry (Father of the Bride).
"We can't thank you enough for our beautiful wedding album and pictures. From our first meeting, we were confident you would capture our special day in the laid back style we wanted. Everyone who has seen the photos has commented that they reflect the day perfectly and when we look at them (which I have done many times!!) it makes us want to get married all over again! Matt and I are so glad we chose you to be part of our big day and that you have helped to make it so memorable smile emoticon Thanks Nikki xx"
Nicola & Matt.
"From the moment we met Nikki we knew she was the right person to photograph our wedding day. The pre wedding shoot helped calm our nerves & the pictures were amazing. On the day, Nikki was great to be around chatting while we were getting ready & taking photos, having her around just helped us relax. As well as the formal shots there is lots of natural pictures of us and our guests. By the end of the day we had forgotten Nikki was there. Nikki was very professional & efficient throughout. The final pictures were way beyond our expectations, they are just fabulous. Every time I watch the slideshow, the day comes back to life. Thank you so much for giving us such beautiful memories.".
Suzanne & Steve.

"Choosing Nikki to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. She is a true professional and extremely talented.
She went above and beyond our expectations and thanks to her we now have beautiful and amazing images to treasure. Nikki pays great attention to detail and really cares about her work, which is proved by the way she conducts her work from the minute you ask her to be your photographer. We totally recommend Nikkipix".

We wish every success in the future you deserve it."
Kathy & Dale Dowdall (Groom's family)
"What can I say about Nikki that will do her Justice? words can not begin to express how perfect she was for our special day in September. From the moment we had our first meeting with Nikki she put us at ease and talked us through every aspect of the day and also gave us a price that was fantastic. Throughout the next 16 month Nikki kept in touch and helped us at every step of the way providing us with inspiration and also listening to our ideas, even recreating the classic Haribo advert. The quality of her expertise on the day was fantastic and all our guests thought she was amazing and what can i say about the photos and album they are amazing and Nikki has captured every minute of the day and so much more. I can not rate Nikki high enough she really was great on every level from start to finish!"
Helen & Andy Ong
"Cannot recommend Nikki highly enough. All aspects of the Wedding photography were exceptionally good. Nikki found exactly the right level on the day, getting loads of amazing pictures but without pushing us and making it a chore. The pictures are fantastic as are the albums and canvas we have in pride of place in the living room. Thank you Nikki for doing such a great job."
Paul and Emma
"We cannot recommend Nikki Pix highly enough. From our initial contact right though to receiving the finished photos Nikki has been really professional and easy to work with. We had a small informal wedding at York registry office, and not being from York relied on Nikki to recommend the best places to have our photos done and she did not disappoint! On the day itself she had a lovely manner with both adults and kids and had some great ideas for shots which have all turned out beautifully, the DVD slideshow and album are both wonderful. Thank you Nikki, the day would not have been the same without you!"
Emma and Andy (Preston, Lancs)
"Hi Nikki, I was 'chief' bridesmaid at Sarah and Ben's wedding. I have looked through the photos and they're really fantastic, some hilarious!

Mary & Andy Alcock (parent's of the bride)
"Nikki is all you could ever ask for in a photographer, Very professional yet relaxed and friendly. In the run up to our wedding Nikki came to our home to listen to what we wanted and she suggested ideas we had never thought of. The Vicar even commented on how impressed he was with Nikki both before and after the wedding after getting in touch. On the day it was surprising how we barely knew she was there at times and she did a great job at getting everyone together. After selecting our photos, we let Nikki use her judgement to design our wedding album and when she stopped by with it just a couple of weeks later we were speechless. The album is a work of art and better than we could ever have dreamed of, everyone loves it. Nikki Pix offers a truly fantastic and affordable service from start to finish and we would highly recommend her. Thank you!"
