Kim and Niki are artists at heart as well as story tellers. We shoot with a fashion forward sensibility, which means we love movement, black and white as well as color saturation in our images. As masters of the moment we understand light and what it takes to get the perfect shot. We make a real connection with our clients, and after a decade of shooting together we still cry at every wedding. We look forward to getting to know you better! Here are a few comments from past clients.

-Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!
Marcelo and I have spent the whole morning looking at our photos!!!! They are wonderful! I am still telling people my favorite part of the wedding was our excellent wedding photographers! We are in the process of selecting our favorites, and I will let you know when we finish! Married life is great :)Thanks again for your beautiful work!
Genny

-WOW!!!!!!
I couldn’t be more thrilled with the photos! They are absolutely beautiful, and I can’t wait for us to have time to meet with you about putting together an album. Your presence at the wedding was perfect -- I hardly knew you were there, and in fact was quite surprised with the # of photos since I hadn’t seen you taking most of them!!! I love it --- brought tears to my eyes.
Fondly, Naomi.

-Chris and I wanted to let you know that we absolutley love our pictures..... Sorry for not letting you know sooner. We are so happy with them. Thank you, for being so good to us that day. We really enjoyed ourselves and fell in love all over again, just looking at the pictures.Thank you so much, Kim and Niki

Yay Kim and Niki!

These photographers are AMAZING. I first met with them at my home, and I was really happy to see how well they clicked together. Kim and Niki seem to compliment each other perfectly, and their photographs prove just how well rounded of a team they are. During your wedding day, I really think it is important to have two photographers who are looking out for each other, capturing those special shots, and giving the event the depth of coverage that it deserves. To see one photographer taking a wide shot, while the other is intimately closeby, really captures the intensity of each moment and the realness of the event. Kim and Niki have that science down to a T.

Furthermore, they are really, really talented photographers! Not only do their shots look incredibly dramatic and timeless, but they put a lot of time and effort into their post production work, as well. They seem to know perfectly which shots to leave as is, which to turn into timeless black and white, and which ones to enhance to really bring out the feeling of the photo. I was very, very happy with all the photographs that they captured of my engagement session, as well as all of my wedding events.

And finally, they are a joy to work with. They are so friendly, so open and so honest, that you can't help but feel comfortable as they are photographing you. When you meet them, it's very evident how much they truly care and love what they do. Indian weddings are extremely complicated, and there are about 5 things all going on at the same time. Kim and Niki captured each event beautifully, all the while ensuring that all the shots that I wanted with family and friends all happened.

I can't say enough good things about this dynamic duo. They are a wonderful team of absolute professionals, and they have given my husband and I the best gift - a timeless wedding that we can always experience through their magical photos. Thank you Kim and Niki!!!

Kim and Niki's enthusiasm is contagious and their professionalism was astounding. Sometimes these two things do not go hand in hand in the wedding industry. Kim and Niki took the time to know us as individuals and as a couple and thus, understood the look that we were going for and took that idea to the next level! They really captured the essence of us and of our day!

Kim and Niki were fantastic to work with and they together really made our wedding special. They were so friendly and humble, but funny too, which is good because it makes your smiles in the pictures that much better. We did engagement phots with them which was real fun b/c we went to a number of sites around SF. Even though we went beyond our alloted time, K&N didn't stress about it and went with the flow (my now wife had multiple changes of clothes, of course). For our actual wedding day, even though they seemed to get every possible phone from different views, I almost forgot they were even there, they blend in so well. Thanks K&N, I highly recommend them!

All I can say is.... AMAZING! Kim and Niki are truly artists at work when it comes to photography. If you are looking for not one but two fun and professional photographers for your wedding... then your search is over! These two made my now husband and I feel like models for the day. They work so well together... that their life and energy just comes through you. They truly have an eye for uniqueness and artistry beyond compare. My husband and I love our engagement and wedding pictures so much that we just want to get married all over again just so we can work with Kim and Niki. Ladies, you both are so fabulous. We just want to thank you both for making our wedding day a dream come true! Ten or twenty years from now as we look back at our wedding pictures, we will be so taken away by them all...for that reason only we can't thank you guys enough for helping us capture all wonderful wedding memories!

These fabulous ladies saved our lives by literally stepping in just a few days before our wedding when our original photographer fell through. After looking at their website, I knew that they would be good, but I had a nagging feeling that that maybe our photos wouldn't be AS great as those. All their photos are of fantastically beautiful people who seem to pose with the ease of professional models. However, when someone points a camera in my direction I immediately get stiff & awkward! Thankfully, I was as far away from wrong as I possibly could have been. Since we had hired them less than a week before our wedding, we had never met them. We liked them right from the get-go. Both Kim and Niki are so charming & genuine. And they seemed to be really excited about OUR wedding. While we were shooting, I felt totally relaxed and actually comfortable, which was actually the strangest feeling. They really encouraged us to have fun and be ourselves, all the while enthusiastically telling us how fabulous we looked & what great shots they were getting. We felt like glamorous movie stars (in the most fun, kid-like way). The way Niki and Kim work together is pretty amazing to watch. They generally stay together shooting from different angles and distances. The way they moved from shot to shot was so seamless it was as if they were reading each others' minds. The family shots were quick & painless (which I thought was going to be dramatic & time consuming). During the ceremony, neither my husband nor I saw them even for an instant. They were so stealthy! And the photos? Wow. They are wondrously breath-taking. When I first saw them I was blown away with not only how gorgeous they are, but also how much personality and genuine emotion comes through. They are more amazing than I ever imagined they could be.

By far, Kim and Niki exceeded our expectations as our photographers. They were our favorite vendors we worked with that day, and the day wouldn't have been the same without them there. They are true artists, so incredibly talented, but even more importantly, so wonderful to work with. They truly make you feel so special and wonderful on your big day! I would recommend them 500 times over to anyone looking for photographers, and so many of our guests asked us for their information after the wedding, too. Kim and Niki are so unique in what they do, and their love for photography and for weddings completely shows in their work.

ce our special day was over, we knew that we were left to preserve the memories through photographs. It was crucial that the photographs were much more than just a picture; they had to be a moment that was captured and characterized by our love...the actual feeling that was taking place the moment the shudder snapped. Kim and Niki are able to preserve this moment forever through a tireless and passionate process that begins months and months before the eternal moment they view through the lens.

As a couple, we believe that the wedding is an intimate moment shared by you and your guests. How is a photographer supposed to see and feel the same subtleties shared by this unique group? Furthermore, how successfully will they translate this emotion through their art? Upon our booking, Kim and Niki set out to listen. They came into our home and shared time with us. They listened to who we are, who our families are and what dreams we aspire towards. Through the months, they opened up doors that enabled Traci and I to share, in layman’s terms, the type of pictures and moments that were important to us.

Our package included an engagement shoot. Kim and Niki, who have
an entire repertoire of locations, researched a few that would fit us as a couple. As it turned out, the four of us spent a relaxing afternoon laughing and talking while they candidly captured the special moments. True photo-journalists. All shoots will require moments of direction as well. Kim and Niki play well off of each other during these stretches. In the interest of keeping things fresh and not to waste our time, they do so in a no-nonsense and take-charge fashion; one less thing we as a couple had to think about.

When we had the results of the engagement shoot (which provided us with the perfect picture for our invitations!), we all sat down again to enhance our understanding of what we were looking for on our big day. Once again, Kim and Niki were extremely attentive and intuitive to what are needs were.

On our wedding day, Kim and Niki whisked into our rooms where we were getting ready. They candidly captured our quiet nervousness, subtle reserve and blinding excitement. The tone of what was to come has been captured because they were able to share in the foreverness of who we are as a couple.

Again, when it came time for our bridal party and family shots, Kim and Niki took charge. It was refreshing that our families did not have to think of where they were supposed to stand or how they were going to keep the groom from seeing his bride. In a matter of moments, we were done.

During the ceremony, we have no memory of seeing Kim or Niki. They managed to capture the entirety of the collective emotion in a completely stealth manner. The photos record every crucial moment; from a tear on a friend to the passion in our hearts. From the wide angel of our onlookers to the glimmer of the ring's
placement. No detail went uncaptured. Extraordinary.

After the ceremony, Kim and Niki again took charge. The moments following the ceremony were a parade of emotion with tears of joy, and a steady stream of congratulations. Yet it was perhaps one of the most special moments for the two of us, ever. Kim and Niki actually kept a line of friends and family at bay while we shared this special moment together. We were completely unaware this was happening, as we felt completely alone. And of course, the moments were captured.

As with any major event (a wedding being the pinnacle!), a depth of memory provides you with feeling of emotion from that very moment in time. You keep it forever inside you. It is extremely rare when the same emotion can be provoked by an image; especially an image that you already have burned into your subconscious mind.

It is neither rarity nor coincidence that Kim and Niki share a vision and are able to reproduce a feeling. It is very obviously their passion and something that will stay with Traci and I forever.
