Who is Nikki Kellogg?
Hi, I'm Nikki Kellogg.
I've always LOVED dressing up and would do it every chance I could when I was younger, and I think Halloween should be celebrated year-round. About 15 years ago I joined the Society for Creative Anachronism doing medieval reenactments where I can dress up as all sorts of personas. Life is too short, have some fun!!
Located in Bergen NY (between Batavia and Rochester), I am driven by my love for capturing images that tell a story. My first love for photography began at a young age when I used to take photos with a Kodak 110 and flashbulbs. I've been doing photography for decades, but decided to go professional a few years ago with my new digital cameras and lenses, and ever-evolving photography skills. I specialize in taking photographs of fantasy sessions and love doing photo manipulations. I strive to create images that are unique and non-traditional in order to stand out from the crowd.
Why the name Nikk Of All Trades?
Not only do I capture all types of photography, but I also do all sorts of jobs. I've been a bookkeeper for many clients over the years, an office manager for a few companies, and I'm a computer geek, working on updating and repairing other's equipment. Being an artist as well as a photographer is fun, with medieval illumination and colored pencil drawings being my favorites. I'm an Ordained Minister, able to perform weddings, handfastings, and various other ceremonies. Owning five different types of sewing machines allows me to make just about anything that comes to mind, plus I love to hand-stitch and crochet. I also have a side business where I recycle fur coats into pillows and blankets, and make artwork from bones, skulls, and insects. Driving around with two show vehicles and going to car shows, I've done glass etching, pinstriping, graphics, window tint, and to top it all off, I have a Class A CDL!
I absolutely love working with Nikki! She's creative, clever, and her enthusiasm for photography shines. It's never a dull moment and cannot thank you enough for being both the photographer and officiating our wedding! Not an easy job but wonderfully done, my wife and I couldn't be happier! Thank you again!
Very professional, I love her perspectives she captures through the lens. Amazing results from settings most wouldn't imagine! 5 stars you deserve it!
Nikki was great! She did my senior photos and they came out amazing! She was patient and worked with me on my ideas for the photoshoot. She made it such an enjoyable, comfortable experience!
Nikki was great to work with. She studied the surroundings to determine where the best spots and light would be for the best photos. She was fun, engaging, and listened to what I wanted. She really took her time to make sure each picture captured me and my dog, Ella. I absolutely love my pictures!! Thank you so much Nikki!! I'll be calling you in the fall to get more!
Nikki did photos for us at our reception/vow renewal, and they were all fabulous! She was great about popping up at the perfect moment to grab a quality shot! She took photos of our venue (the backyard) as well and made everything look amazing! She’s a total ninja, and we didn’t even see her grab some of the epic shots until we saw them after the fact! I’d give her more than 5 stars if I could! Thanks Nikki!
