A fine art photography experience for brides and mothers.

Begin Below

I’m Nikki Santerre, a fine art photographer for the modern bride and creative mother. I use a hybrid approach, combining film and digital mediums to create tangible heirlooms for my beloved clients.

Understated luxury. Bespoke heirlooms. Evocative legacies.

Meet Nikki

I’m a fine art wedding, maternity, and newborn photographer for the modern bride and creative mother. I’m also a poetic writer, infertility advocate, educator and film connoisseur. It’s my deepest desire and joy to preserve marriage and motherhood through fine art imagery and written documentaries that leave legacies for future generations to come. I also share what it’s like being a mother in this season with my long-awaited son, Mason.

I'm nikki

and it’s a joy to welcome you.   

- Annamarie Akins, photographer and motherhood client

“Nikki perfectly captured one of the most beautiful, raw, and special seasons in my life and I could never thank her enough for the stunning images that will always remind me of those first few precious weeks after we brought our son home. I look at the photos so often... they always bring me right back to the squishy newborn snuggles and the feeling of exhausted bliss I felt in those moments.”


- Katie Poppe, 2015 Bride

“Once we sealed the deal, we experienced nothing short of spectacular. Nikki’s passion to serve her clients was unmatched and evident by her desire to perform beyond any contractual agreement. Even months—and years!—after our wedding day, Nikki has continued to serve us with gestures of gifts and kindness.”


- Mindy Benedict, 2018 Bride

“I felt such relief at knowing you were there, and knowing that, no matter what went wrong ‘behind the scenes’, you would be working your magic behind the camera. Because of that, all of our images are full of love and light and NO STRESS. I love you for that.”
