Lot 8 San Diego Wedding | California Wedding Photographer

April 12, 2019

Makyia + Scot were SO happy and in love for their Lot 8 San Diego wedding!!!

From the beautiful first look location to the ceremony & reception at the Lot 8 in San Diego, this wedding was filled with so many beautiful moments. This venue was so unique and so gorgeous and the photos are just a glimpse of what it has to offer. From the moment I spoke to Makyia I knew that the two of us would get along amazingly and sure enough we did! She was such a joy to work for and I was so honored to be apart of her and Scot’s big day!

“I had the pleasure of having Nikki photograph my wedding on March 15th, 2019.

Leading up to the day, Nikki was extremely organized and communicative. We had several phone conversations going over my wedding and what was important to me. She offered to help me in any way that she could and went above and beyond the expectations, regarding the duties of a photographer.

“The first time I met Nikki in person was at my first look, just a couple hours before my wedding ceremony and I already felt like I knew her. She makes you feel at ease, but at the same time takes her job extremely seriously. She led my husband and I through our portraits and first look like a PRO. She is quick and to the point when it comes to shooting, but you never feel rushed or stressed! This is seriously HER CALLING. On your wedding day, you have a timeline to keep and Nikki knows this. She directs you and moves you right along seamlessly and swiftly and gets a BAJILLION amazing shots while doing it!

“During the wedding, Nikki not only took amazing photos but attended to some of my personal needs as well. She even handed me some ceviche and held my glass of wine while I inhaled the food, bless her heart! She is thoughtful and understands that this is YOUR DAY!

“You receive a sneak peak pretty much immediately, so that you can post some beautiful pictures right after your wedding. She also got me my whole album of beautifully edited photographs much sooner than I expected.

“All of this was just icing on the cake – because her work is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Just look at her photographs, because they speak for themselves… and speak to how talented Nikki is. Or as I like to say, “the proof is in the pictures” – that Nikki knows what she’s doing!

“From the more directed and staged pictures such as the portraits and first look to capturing raw emotions and precious moments to her editing and the flawless tones she chooses and uses, I honestly couldn’t be more happy with my wedding pictures. I couldn’t recommend Nicole Kirshner Photography more for your wedding day! 5 stars all the way!” – Makyia + Scot
