Nikki Kauzlarich




Welcome to Nikki Kauzlarich Photography! I am so excited you've decided to check out my work! My work is so much of who I am and what I find important. I hope that when you look through these images you see and feel the emotion I hoped to capture. Can't wait to hear from you!


Emotional, romantic & raw


01. MY philosophy

I believe that photography is more than just a picture. It captures moments and emotions, turning them into future memories. With every wedding or family session I do, I am always captivated by the deep emotions that are expressed. Those three words are what make up my work; the emotion, the romance and the raw moments that make up each unique and individual story.

Everything I am, who I am, and how I work is first built upon my relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the rock on which I stand and why I am who I am. He has created me to be a light for HIS Kingdom and I strive to do that everyday. No this has nothing to do with photography, but it has everything to do with how I connect with each of my clients. I strive to show God's love through time together in conversation, in my values and in my interactions. 

Your story, wherever you are in life, is important. SO important that I invest my time, my energy and my love into it. Your moments become my moments to capture and preserve for not only your lifetime but for the generations that follow. 



Guess what, that's me. I'm quirky and super laid back. I am a wife to the most amazing man named Joe, who sometimes goes by Aaron (long story,) high school sweethearts who have been together for almost 16 years and married 11.  We have two of the most stunning girls (you could say I'm biased but just wait till you see them) who are my entire world and we live in the beautiful Frederick, Maryland surrounded by the mountains that calms me in every way. I am so blessed.

Photography has been part of my life since I was 16, (don't do the math guys.) I love emotion, the real gritty stuff that makes you want to remember it all exactly as it was.

Nikki is absolutely amazing. I don't have enough words to say that do her justice...seriously! She has the ability to capture the perfect "in-between" real moments. She knows how to put you at ease throughout the process of the engagement shoot to get those perfect images that capture the love. She'll tell you kindly and honestly how to look your best and delivers a stunning finished product. She is so kind and caring towards her clients. You'll love her!!

I found Nikki when I googled Baltimore photographers in the beginning of wedding planning. I clicked on her website and got lost in the words and photos that I read and saw. She seemed like a real romantic, right up my alley! I quickly inquired about pricing information and heard back from her right away, and set up a facetime date to get to know each other. On our wedding day, Nikki met myself and my bridesmaids at the venue when we were getting ready. She was super helpful with calming my nerves and my fear that we were running behind. We decided to do a first look which was so perfect, and they chose an excellent spot on the staircase inside the venue. We got out pictures about 1 month from our wedding day, and I haven't stopped looking at them. I am in awe of the work she did. The photographer was the number 1 most important part of our wedding day for me. There isn't a moment that she missed!

Nikki was so personable yet professional through it all. She is also is kind, positive, caring, sincere and genuine as a person. I would've never imagined that to be a quality to look for when hiring a wedding photographer but in the midst of the CHAOS of wedding day festivities and responsibilities, it was so nice to have a dependable photographer by my side who just supported me. Though I've honestly only met her a handful of times, she quickly felt like a friend... and I am so grateful that she was able to spend our wedding day with us. I really think, without her, I would have struggled to stay sane in some of my wedding day drama! Her photos came in on time, and I loved how she was able to capture our day so beautifully while preserving all the raw emotions felt on the day. I loved everything about my experience with Nikki.

Emotional, Raw & Romantic. These three words are throughout my site in a number of areas and heres why, that is my style, those three words make up my photography. When I set out for a session or a wedding these three words on on my mind. My hope is to bring out the story, the personality of the couples and families I photograph. My editing style is a darker warmer tone that adds a a little drama to the photos. Editing may vary slightly by season. I do no extreme photoshop work.

whats next

I bought my first slr film camera when I was 16. It was my favorite thing in the world. Later on I went to school for it and afterwards branched out into the world as an intern for a wonderful wedding photographer. Though I have been taking photographs for over 10 years, I have been in this business for 6. I am constantly still learning and growing and I hope that never stops.

How long have you been a photographer

YES! I encourage it! Having pictures printed or put into an album makes our session come to life. Albums can be purchased in two sizes, 8x8 and 10x10 in either a linen cover or leather cover. Albums begin at $600. 

Can i purchase an album
