Welcome To Merrick Photography

Professional photographer Nigel Merrick, proudly serving the Memphis area with wedding photography, family portraits, children's photography, senior portraits and model photography

While the camera lens is much more than a mere extension of my professionally trained eye, it is also an extension of my artistic essence, creative spirit and heartfelt emotions.

If you're seeking legacy quality, premium photography and portraiture, carefully crafted to meticulously capture those truly special moments in time, and preserve them for lifetimes to come, then welcome my friend, you have arrived in precisely the right place.

I value those wondrously significant, memory making moments in your life as deeply and seriously as you do, so only the very finest quality, top of the line equipment, supplies and processes are utilized, in order to GUARANTEE that those cherished, life affirming moments will be proudly presented and preserved for lifetimes to come. Although I look through the camera with my eyes, I see with my heart to capture the essence and spirit of each of my subjects, to truly produce "Images Inspired By You…"

In a day ruled by instant, "point and click" amateurs claiming to be professional photographers, I pride myself on my vast collection of captivatingly cultured and traditionally elegant photographs and portraits that are verifiable proof of my expertise and skill, as well as a visually expressive representation of my heart, mind and soul.

For those of you who already know exactly what you're looking for, please feel free to "mouse-over" the section title below that you are interested in and after reading through the material and viewing the samples provided, don't hesitate to contact me to ask any questions you may have. That's precisely what I'm here for, so the only silly question … is the one that you never bothered to ask.

For those of you who are still deciding precisely what it is that you are looking for, please make yourself comfortable to freely roam the galleries and tour the site at your own pace. If you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask. Nothing makes the photographic process more pleasantly personal than a "one on one," human conversation.

Be sure to ask about my Seasonal and "Once In A Lifetime" Special Offers, upcoming Studio Events and if you think that you, your child or someone you know, has what it takes to be a model, check out my Modeling Opportunities.

Be sure to come back often, as new specials and packages are added regularly.

Your input is always greatly valued and appreciated, and I truly look forward to presenting your photographic project with pride, purpose, passion and perfection!

Why Choose Merrick Photography For Your Wedding Or Family Portrait?

I believe being a photographer is MORE than creating photographs...

It requires humility, a love of people, compassion and empathy to capture "images inspired by you". My goal is that, whenever you admire your portraits, the warm feelings of joy from those precious moments will come flooding back to you.

Are family, relationships, love and memories important to you? If so, I would love to chat with you about creating portraits that will bring you and your family tears of joy and many years of happiness.

"Every job, no matter how small, is worth doing properly..."

This is one of the principles I live by every day. Each detail is important, and every portrait is treated as an individual work of art. As a result, I stand behind my work as a professional portrait and wedding photographer 100% with my guarantee.

I serve everyone in the Memphis area and beyond. I'll be thrilled to chat with you about your family, wedding or any other questions you have about photography, portraits, clothing choices, lighting etc.

Wedding Photography...

For example, did you know I'm one of the few wedding photographers in the Memphis area to attend the wedding rehearsal at no extra charge? No other wedding photographer I know makes it a point to introduce themselves to the wedding party and the minister before the wedding!

Portrait Photography...

As a designer portrait artist, you'll also have access to my exclusive portrait design service. We get together with you before the photography day to discuss clothing, lighting, special requirements, location, timing and any other factor that might influence the finished portrait to be proudly displayed in your home. No other family portrait photographer in the area will put so much time into the preparation of the finished portrait with you.

Regarding locations for photography, the Memphis Botanic Gardens is a location that I particularly enjoy and specialize in. This is an ideal location for any type of portraits and provides a wealth of varied and picturesque backdrops to suit any style of photography. Carahills I & II are my favorite wedding event venues for photography in the Memphis area - they are simply amazing for the bride looking for a more exclusive location for her wedding day. For more information see the page on Carahills Wedding Photography.
