Life is a journey, not a destination. Likewise, a wedding is more than just one perfect kiss and a handful of flowers.
It's a story that unfolds over many years.
It's a story of happiness, excitement, wonder, boredom, pain, and joy. You'll experience hundreds of emotions on your journey together.
While I can't tell your story from the beginning, I can put the pieces together in a way that will bring the memories flooding back. Fifty years from now, I want you to look back on these photos and remember how you exactly how you felt on your wedding day.
Hello! I'm Mike Quain, The Nikon Kidd. I'm a Northwest Arkansas wedding and adventure photographer, based in Bentonville, Arkansas, and available for travel worldwide!
I hope you like my photos! My story begins in 2014 when I quit my day job and set out to explore the United States from the comfort of my 1985 Ford Econoline Van.
Over the next 20,000 miles traveling the country by van, thumb and rail., I developed my photography skills and my love for adventure.
There's nothing I love more than telling a good story through photos.
Let me tell yours.
I aim to give you more than you thought possible.
Memories are what it's all about, right? Long after the last guest has gone home, the last slice of cake has been eaten, and the honeymoon is over, you'll be left with only memories of your wedding day.
These are the memories you'll pass on to your grandchildren and the stories you'll tell for years to come. My mission is to preserve these memories for you in a very special way.
Let's go climb mountains together!
It's no secret that I love a good adventure. I love the Ozark Mountains, the Buffalo River, The Ouachita Forests, the sand dunes and salt flats of Oklahoma, and everything in between.
Heck, the adventure is the entire reason I started wedding photography! If you're not afraid to get your wedding dress dirty I'm your kind of photographer.
