Wedding Day Photography



“Once we saw Nikk Nguyen and his teams’ gallery online, our eyes lit up! We loved the style, lighting, and natural moments with movement. Before our wedding day, my husband and I were nervous that we would feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, but they made us feel at ease with their bubbly and calming personalities! They were absolute pros and made the process so easy and seamless.”

Brad – Videographer




To Nikk, there’s nothing more hardcore than photographing a wedding. You plan for it for months, or even years, and it’s over in moments. Miss ‘em, and they’re gone forever. So Nikk’s philosophy about being a wedding photographer? It’s less about being a camera operator, and more about being an artist with a vision, an athlete who races against the clock with intense precision, a journalist with an eye for story, and a magician who can freeze time so his clients can relive their precious moments over and over again. 

That’s why he started Nikk Nguyen Photography in 2016, and we guess Austin liked his perspective, because the business quickly expanded into Southern Love Creative by Nikk Nguyen in 2020. Today, Nikk spends most of his time leading his photo-video team, editing the shit out of your wedding images, and taking on the rare wedding photography project personally

What’s your style?

Heavily documentarian. We take a thoughtful, in-the-moment approach to weddings, looking for real connection and raw emotions. Our editing style is bold, too. You can expect to see strong colors that help you remember the day as it really was. Most importantly, our clients are our muse for every project. By getting to know you and your personalities, we can capture wedding images that are perfectly “you.” 

And Who Are You?

Hold up — let us guess. You’re good people, all about having a good time.

You want your wedding day to be a celebration for your whole family. You think wedding planning is low-key stressful and would rather hire pros who are bosses at what they do than micromanage them. You know who you are and don’t want to hide it, especially on your wedding day. Are we close?
