Palm Springs Wedding: Nikkie + Dicky

Where do I begin…

Dicky contacted me a few years ago to photograph ‘The proposal’ at the Lighthouse in Palm Beach, Sydney.

Of course I was down for the job, I hid in the bushes and captured it all, Nikkie said ‘YES!’ There was a sparkling ring, an incredible sunset, kisses and champagne.

Fast forward a year or so and it was time to plan the wedding. Dicky called me from the USA, adamant that I was going to be their wedding photographer. Then we faced the challenge of finding a date that suited us all. It was not looking good. Dicky, being one of the most positive people I’ve ever met said “Look, we will lock in our date which you are already booked for and hopefully the couple who have booked you will change their date.” That had never happened before…

Then it happened.

Within a day I had a flight booked to Los Angeles and was shooting their wedding in Palm Springs. Woo hoo!

Nikkie, Dicky, their families and friends made me feel so welcome. I stayed with them for four days in the desert and it was one of the greatest parties I’ve ever attended.

It went a little something like this…
