"…we jokingly refer to Nikki as 'the ninja' – she’s everywhere at once and yet completely invisible."


“Nikki pushes far beyond the ‘stock’ shots, and somehow manages to cover every aspect of even two-day summits singlehandedly… we jokingly refer to Nikki as ‘the ninja’ – she’s everywhere at once and yet completely invisible. Nikki has an infectious personality and is an absolute delight to work with.”

Nikki-Ritcher About

I am a lifestyle and documentary photographer based in Sacramento, California. I have lived in and traveled to many beautiful places, and my focus on photography has been just as diverse over the years. I am one of the lucky ones that always knew whom I wanted to be when I grew up professionally, and I don’t take that for granted. I thrive off of human connection, playing in nature, and the animals that we share this gorgeous planet with. This is what inspires my imagery and my soul. I love: working and collaborating with solid and fun humans, tackling beastly projects, and pushing myself and my limit endurance-wise. My clients always remark on my energizer ability, even on long productions, while always having a smile on my face. 

My Mantra?… have fun; shit always happens, and act in the exact reflection of what you want to get back from life.
