authentic + artistic wedding photography –  Nikki Leadbetter Photography 2017 Faves

16 July 2018

Are you ready for an emotional rollercoaster? Good, because that’s what you’re going to get. If you’ve never had that moment before where you literally gasp from overawe, sit down and buckle up, because our Wedding Collective fave Nikki Leadbetter has compiled her 2017 highlights, and they are actually, legitimately, physically breath-taking.

Crying at strangers’ weddings is an occupational hazard in this biz, but this is outta-the-world, on-top-of-the-world photographic storytelling at it’s absolute finest. Describing it as an ‘incredibly fast and incredibly amazing’ year, Nikki 2017 video takes us on a journey.

From sunrises to sunsets, joy on faces fresh and new to faces experienced and wise, and celebrations in forests and fields to barns and beaches to country homes and city streets, you can feel the authenticity and emotion radiating from the screen. Each screenshot brings with it effortless beauty, stunning light and picture-perfect framing, and everything totally melts away as you’re taken to that moment (it’s not the heat melting it, we promise you, it’s Nikki’s actual bona fide magic photography). And let’s face it – if a second-long screen shot of a stranger’s wedding gives you a lump in your throat and makes your heart literally hurt from the incredible, overwhelming emotion of it all – just imagine what your own wedding album would feel like…
