Kind Words


From my couples

It's all about the memories and feelings you leave your couples with.

I’m with you every step of the way, from our initial chat over a cup of coffee,

until the day you receive your gorgeous wedding photos and albums.

In between, we plan your epic day and make gorgeous art together.

"I cannot recommend Nik enough! From the minute we met he was so lovely and warm, and I knew wholeheartedly he would capture our memories so perfectly. On our special day he slotted in amongst our huge family and everyone loved him and his kind nature. It felt like having a friend with you all day cheering you on and making you feel beautiful. Needless to say, our photos are everything we could’ve ever dreamt of and we are so happy to start displaying them everywhere we can! Thank you Nik for giving us the perfect photos to show our future babies."

"Mate. We're bloody speechless. We've only got the 'sneak peek' photos but wow, you have done a truly amazing job!! The photos are phenomenal! We waited all day for the message and literally interrupted a conversation with family to look!

Thank you so much for all of your work in the lead up to our big day and most importantly for your time, care and craftsmanship yesterday. You perfectly captured what will be one of the happiest days of our lives."

Jarrod & Shannon

Red Hill, VIC

"We can't speak highly enough of Nik and how exceptionally he captured our events over our wedding weekend - you couldn't meet a nicer guy. Nothing was a trouble or a problem for him. So many people said to us how delightful he was and how comfortable he made everyone feel. At the end of the day, it's the photos that matter the most and we truly couldn't be happier with what he created - the greatest challenge is narrowing down to a selection of images because so many are perfect.

Nik - our day already felt perfect but your photos have made it even more perfect. For anyone who is looking at Nik as their photographer, I 100% can say you won't be disappointed."

"Nik did our engagement shoot (beach – Jan 2022) and wedding photos (city streetscape – March 2023) and from the very beginning it felt like he was a friend we’d known forever. He has always made us feel present, calm and comfortable in front of his lens, even on stressful days! Nik has an incredible way of giving gentle guidance and direction to get the right shot, while also allowing you to be authentically yourself. His warmth, humour and easy-going nature also meant that he got along famously with our families, friends and other vendors, even taking the time to reach out to key people to chat before our big day.

Nik’s online galleries as well as his hard copy prints are exceptional quality, and our family and friends rave about them both. He is extremely dedicated to his craft, finds inspiration in a huge range of locations, keeps in touch regularly throughout the process and is just a genuinely awesome guy.

We cannot recommend Nik highly enough to be the one to capture your special day."

Alisha & Akshay

Sandringham, VIC

"Hands down Nik was the best decision we made for our wedding! Right from the start we were captivated by his friendly demeanour and genuine sincerity. Nik was happy to help us months prior to our wedding, discussing plans, event scheduling, permits, what photos we would like, scouting locations.

On the actual day, it was like a dream, our family and friends felt so comfortable being photographed and Nik was a great support when things didn’t go as planned on the day. Yet to see all the photos as our wedding just happened but the preview photos are just exactly what we imagined! We are so happy! Thank you Nik."

Mel & Chris

Preston, VIC

"Words aren't going to be able to convey what Nik contributed to our wedding day(s). Yes, we are 'those people' who had two wedding days back to back, with day one being a Cambodian ceremony at the house and day two being a big party at our favourite place of booze.

Nik immediately became one of the gang; his ability to integrate, understand what was important to capture, and endure less than ideal circumstances at times showed us just how professional he is.

Nothing was too much trouble, enthusiasm always on point, photo gallery as evidence of talent. He has a knack for intuiting people and place that produces images that reflect the joy and sense of occasion; from traditional ceremony, to wedding party photo shoot, to western ceremony and late night dance party.

We aren't big into reviewing things, but an exception must be made for Nik. Truly exceptional work from someone who you feel you've known for your whole life the second time you meet him.

Thanks Nik, we wish you every success. We might even have to renew the vows soon just to relive the glory days with you. Cheers!"

Erandi & Shane

Melbourne, VIC

"Nikola is the most amazing photographer and an absolute delight to work with. My husband and I were thrilled to have him capture our most special day. We couldn’t have asked for anyone more talented, accommodating, warm and friendly. Highly recommend! We can’t thank you enough Nik!"

Nabila & Sean

Ripponlea, VIC

"Nik shot our wedding back in September 2022, and he was beyond everything that we hoped for. From the moment I saw his work on socials, I knew I had to engage him as our wedding photographer.

His natural talent in capturing intimate moments and portraying the photos in a moody romance kind of way was the vision I wanted for my wedding. Not only was he friendly and accommodating to our requests, his kind personality resonated with us and our family. He kept everyone at ease throughout the wedding and was fun to be around.

I'm glad to call him one of our friends now and am always excited to see his future work. Thank you again, Nik! We would do it all over again."

Kim & Andrew

Fitzroy, VIC

"We had such an amazing experience with Nik on our wedding day and in the lead up! He was extremely personable and professional and went out of his way to ensure the whole experience was easy, seamless and fun! He thought of everything right from the initial planning, to scouting locations and to making sure rain, hail or shine there would be amazing photo opportunities. Our final wedding photos were gorgeous! We can't recommend him enough. If you have a special occasion that needs to be captured genuinely, you definitely won't be disappointed."

Tamara & Mark

Melbourne, VIC

"We are so thankful and grateful to have had Nik as our wedding photographer. His skills, knowledge, professionalism, easy going friendly nature and high quality work is exceptional. His attention to detail, his confidence in his work and the opportunities he took to capture the best possible pictures at the exact right time make him by far the best in the business!

I am very camera shy, however in the pre-wedding shoot Nik made me feel comfortable and at ease straight away, and the experience became fun and relaxing. All his advice and guidance made the wedding day run so efficiently and smoothly. The end product of the photos and photo album is sensational and we could not be happier. Thank-you Nik!"

Dawn & Duy

Mornington Peninsula, VIC

"Nik you are AMAZING and you really lifted up our day for us.

From coming around early and staying late and getting all we wanted in between, he felt like a friend that we've known for years and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photos turned out incredible and the keepsake photo was a lovely surprise too. But it doesn't stop there, we feel like we have gained a friend after our day and if you're wondering if you should get Nik, this is the sign."

Kristen & Justin

Fitzroy, VIC

"From first meeting Nik to getting our photos back, I couldn't be happier. He really had a big impact on our whole wedding day and made it one of the best days of our lives.

He's really easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable from the get go. My partner really liked his previous work and pointed to some specific wedding that she really liked the tone of. From there we tweaked it to make it our own and Nik was there to provide ideas and guidance.

On the day, I was pretty nervous but Nik brought his calm personality and answered a bunch of questions and made myself, my groomsman, my page boys and flower girl really comfortable. I was surprised with how well he did directing the kids when they needed some direction, especially because this was their first time meeting Nik.

Throughout the rest of the day, he gave direction when he needed to but got so many natural shots as that is what we asked for. We gave Nik a bunch of places throughout Melbourne we wanted photos and Nik gave us some ideas along the way which was amazing.

The type of shots, the colour tones and basically everything else about his photography was exactly what we asked for. We couldn't speak highly enough of him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer in Melbourne."



"Nikola is one of the friendliest people I've ever met while still being very professional. Absolutely beautiful photos and he made us feel so comfortable and relaxed the whole time. Hopefully this is my first and last wedding hah, but would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Nik is such a gem! A lovely person who puts you right at ease and takes the time to get to know you which makes for amazing photos! He really knows his stuff and has great creative ideas as well."

Vy & Kangas

St Kilda, VIC

"Hands down, the best wedding photographer in the world!

Nik is incredibly talented, passionate and dedicated. He supported us each step of the way in the lead up to the wedding, always wanting to learn more about us as a couple, our families, our cultures and traditions, and all the important moments to capture on our wedding day.

Nik’s experience and gentle guidance kept us calm on the day and has left us with an unforgettable storybook of memories that we cannot be more grateful for.

I absolutely recommend Nik if you’re looking for someone to capture your love in the most authentic and romantic light.

A trillion stars if that could be possible."

Genie & Tass

Mildura, VIC

"5 stars are not enough to rate either Nikola Janev as a person, or Nikola Janev as a photographer.

From the minute we met him, our minds were set and we knew he was the only person we wanted to capture our day, and we were never disappointed.

Nik understood us as a couple and what we wanted on our day. The entire time he was professional, responsive (what every organised bride needs) and he was always super helpful. He even researched amazing locations for our destination wedding which we hadn’t even thought about and made sure we took advantage of the down times when the lighting and scenery was perfect – giving us the best memories of the best day.

While we knew, loved and appreciated Nik’s calming nature, it oozed out on the day amongst the bridal party, helping them feel calm, relaxed and ready to party! Such a gentleman.

Choosing Nik to share in our day was the easiest (and best!) decision we made."

Sanja & George

Ascot Vale, VIC

"Nikola did our wedding and was absolutely fantastic!

We would unreservedly recommend Nikola to anyone needing a photographer. He is adaptable, creative, and delivered far beyond expectations. He captured perfectly the style we asked for, delivered well beyond expectations and was a pleasure to work with.

Nikola works hard for you, beyond the call of duty, and is a great guy to work with.

Nik’s pricing is very reasonable, especially considering the absolute premium service he delivers. Every person who has seen our photos comments on how great they are.

Thanks Nikola, and well done to anyone who has discovered Nik’s talents for themselves! Recommend without reservation!"

Marina & Aiden

Werribee, VIC

"There are simply no words to say how amazing Nik is!!!

Our wedding photos are beyond incredible and exceeded any of our expectations. For a couple who had never been in front of a professional camera before, we truly had the most enjoyable experience having Nik capture our day.

Our biggest feedback from our friends and family was how genuinely happy Nik looked to be there, and how comfortable he made everyone feel!

Nik, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are a big part of what made our day as special as it was!"

Leah & Josh

Dandenong, VIC

"Nik was an absolute pleasure to have be a part of our special day.

We are a shy couple and he made us feel comfortable and relaxed the whole time. He captured so many wonderful moments throughout the day. I cannot stop going through the amazing gallery he put together for us!

We highly recommend Nik! He’s the best!"

Lam & Andrew

Daylesford, VIC

"Nikola did our pre-wedding and wedding and reception photography. Not only was his work beautiful but he was so patient and supportive. We really enjoyed working with Nik and recommend him to any couples looking for someone to capture their big day.

Thanks so much Nik. We will treasure the images you captured forever."

Carrie & Scott

Sandringham, VIC

"Thank you to Nik for capturing the most spectacular photos for our wedding. Not only is Nik lovely and incredibly kind to work with, but he is also a true professional. The photos of our wedding were absolutely stunning and more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.

On the day, Nik made us feel very comfortable with having our photos captured and at times you barely noticed your photos were being taken. This was ideal as our photos had a very natural feel to them and did not feel “staged” at all.

We have the most beautiful photos from our wedding and now have the hard task of choosing which to place in an album as there are that many stunning ones to choose from.

I wanted to extend Nik a massive thank you for capturing our special day and for providing wonderful photos as memories to look back on. I could not recommend Nik more highly, his work is phenomenal!"

Jamila & Orch

Fitzroy, VIC

"A true professional! Nik is a dream to work with, highly recommended for any couples looking for someone to capture their big day."

Sophie & Conaill

Melbourne, VIC

"Nik was our wedding photographer. The only thing better than his photos, is his warm personality and welcoming style. Be sure to check out his Instagram for evidence of his great work, and don’t hesitate to book him when you need your next event photographed! Thanks again Nik."

Sonia & Bennor

Port Melbourne, VIC

"Nik was our wedding/engagement photographer and we couldn’t have been happier with our photos. He was a delight to work with and the photos he captured were beautiful, effortless and natural. The photo book we ended up with was incredible quality too! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

Sophie & Dan

Sorrento, VIC

"We are eternally grateful for the beauty in which Nik captured our wedding. We can’t stop looking at the photos and sharing them with everyone we know. Not only a talented photographer but a true gentlemen who seamlessly fits into the wedding experience."

Kirsty & James

Melbourne, VIC

"We had Nik for our wedding a few weeks ago and he was amazing!

He was so great to work with as well as being so efficient in editing the photos after the big day. I made a special request for him to send a couple of shots through for me to send out the following day and he sent me an amazing selection to choose from that he had taken the time to edit later the same day!

So impressed and the end results are just beautiful!"

Shamini & Athan

Mykonos, Greece

"Nikola did an amazing job for our wedding photography.

His attitude, temperament, and understanding of what happens at a wedding, and his flexibility to work around anything and anyone made him a rockstar on the day and extremely easy to work with.

And the photos that followed were stunning – my wife and I love his natural style to capture moments rather than highly stylised shots.

Nikola is a master and well recommended."

Jessica & Eric

Moama, NSW

"Nik! Thank you for your time and effort in capturing some wonderful memories from our wedding day. The pre-wedding shoot was a fabulous idea – it gave us a chance to get to know one another, as well as become comfortable with smiling for the camera. It was also a welcome break from all the last minute wedding planning.

On the day you not only woke early but stayed up after the party was finished to capture our venue at its most serene. In between you braved the heat and didn’t stop taking photos – so many of our guests commented how impressed they were with your efforts. My mother-in-law thanks you for the photography tips you passed on to her.

Sitting down with you going through the final photos gave us the chance to reminisce & re-live the moments that passed so quickly on the actual day – thanks for your patience as we ‘ooh-ed and ahh-ed’ over each image.

We’re very happy you were available to photograph our wedding, we couldn’t have made a better choice! All the best to you and your family."

Renee & Luke

Koh Samui, Thailand

"Nik, you’re amazing. We still can’t believe how lucky we were to have you with us along this journey. We now know that the decision to go with you was one of the wisest we made with our wedding, after all, what is that special day without amazing photos to capture it the way you remember it.

From our first meeting, you made us feel that it was really all about us. How you asked us to refer you to other images that we liked made us feel you were really trying to make us happy. We gave you one particular brief, to take great night shots. We wanted to remember the fun, and we wanted you to be emerged in the party.

As you can tell from the countless comments from our friends who were there and those who (thanks to you) now wish they were, you definitely hit the mark we were so hoping you would. You always made us feel comfortable, from that first awkward schoochy shot in on Hosier Lane you got us to a point that it felt far more natural than we ever thought it would be, and because of that, we were able relax and enjoy the wedding day so much more.

Our Wedding Planner, who does around 30 weddings a year and is considered one of the best on Koh Samui said you were by far the hardest working photographer she has seen, and we can totally attest to that. You were with us all day, from the Temple at 8am through to some time after midnight, you were there, dedicated to capturing our special day.

Nik, again, you are amazing. Thank you so so so much."

Siri & Neel

Ubud, Bali

"Nik was our photographer for our wedding in Bali. We also had a pre-wedding shoot around Melbourne prior to that. His photos are simply amazing. There is no doubt about that. On top of that, Nik’s ability to make you feel so comfortable for those that are not used to being in front of the camera while making it very enjoyable is what makes Nik so special in capturing special moments.

Most of our photos had a funny story behind them, that makes us smile each time we look through the photos. I consider us very lucky to have had Nik as our photographer and we can’t recommend him enough."

Jasmine & Matt

Eltham, VIC

"Nik is both a gentleman and an amazing photographer. Artistic, professional and a master of the craft – these are the elements you hope to find in a photographer and Nik embodies all of them and more.

My wife and I have had photo sessions with Nik on numerous occasions inclusive of our engagement, wedding and most recently with our precious child. Nik has always been able to capture our most special memories with beauty, grace and style.

We look forward to working with Nik again and creating more amazing memories as our family continues to blossom. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Nik for all of your wonderful and priceless work."

If you read all the reviews, we should definitely talk.
