EXPLORE WITH ME

Hello! I'm Mike Quain, The Nikon Kidd. I'm a Northwest Arkansas wedding and adventure photographer. I'm based in Bentonville, Arkansas, but am available for travel worldwide.

I like to hike, sleep outside, hitchhike, and climb mountains. I'm obsessed with telling stories without words.

A photograph is a memory - something that you will cherish forever.

More than anything, I love to help capture those memories.

Hello! I'm Mike

Former trainhopper, dog lover

I'm The Nikon Kidd.

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 30,000 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.

The biggest day of your life marks the beginning of a crazy adventure.

Journey

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 back the memories, not just the moments. Fifty years from now, I want you to look back on these photos and remember how you felt.

DELIVERING MEMORIES

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.

Memories

Exploring Light

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.

let's do this!
