    Nick is the best!

    Choosing a photographer was probably THE most important thing for me during the whole wedding planning process, but as soon as my Husband and I spoke to Nick, we knew he was the perfect person to capture our special day. We first got our engagement photos done with Nick first and although we were nervous to be in front of the camera, Nick told us exactly what to do, how to pose, what to say to make us laugh, and everything came out 1000x better than I could have ever imagined! In the months leading up to the wedding, we was easy to contact, had us fill out forms to make sure we got all the family portraits and special photos we wanted, and helped us through all the day-of planning. He knew our venue, got our family portraits done in record time(!!), and took so many breathtaking, amazing shots. All of our guests kept coming up to us saying he was great, too!
    We ended up doing an 8 hour coverage with a second shooter and they were both professional, supportive, and a blast to work with! Highly highly recommend and would hire again in a heartbeat.

    Nick is your guy!

    Nick exceeded our expectations in every way. We loved getting to know him through our engagement session and appreciated his quick responses as questions popped up during wedding planning. On the day of our wedding he was instrumental in moving us along our plan and captured everything we wanted to. We were especially impressed with the amount his partner and him captured during cocktail hour, we feel like we have great photos of everyone who attended our wedding. We couldn't recommend Nick more! If you're looking for timeless photos and an experienced photographer, Nick is your guy.

    Nick is amazing!

    NICK IS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! My husband and I had sooooo much fun posing for photos and dancing and laughing throughout the process - we truly had the most perfect day and night!

    We also had many guests come up to us to compliment us (like we had anything to do with it?!) on Nick's skills as a photographer!! People were so impressed by him and his second photographer running to keep up with us throughout our photo dash and also finding such beautiful spots for our photos. Nick truly took the time to ensure the lighting, background - EVERYTHING was perfect for us (Veil photos? Check! Golden hour photos? Double check!!) From the photos he let me peek at, I can tell you with certainty that he totally knocked it out of the park!!

    Some of our guests have asked for our photographer's information for future events - if that doesn't say it all then I don't know what will! Nick was incredibly responsive throughout wedding planning, calm when I was stressed, and so helpful while we wanted to create an accurate wedding day timeline. He was a positive light throughout our day and even laughed with us along the way :)

    We're so sad our wedding is over, but we are looking back grinning because it was better than we ever could have imagined. Nick helped to create an absolutely a priceless day for us - we can't wait for our sneak peak!!!!

    We know our paths cross again at events and for our photo needs in the future!! If you're on the fence about booking Nick, sign that contract right away!! You won't regret it :)

    Nobody will make you more comfortable!

    Nick is the GOAT. Honestly. It's hard to put into words how grateful we are to have worked with him! My husband and I met Nick when he photographed a wedding that I was a Bridesmaid in. I asked the Bride if he was a family friend because that is the vibe we got, he makes everyone feel so comfortable!!! So of course, we had to have him for our wedding too! Best decision we made! Nick really got to know us so that he and his team could truly capture who we are as a couple on our wedding day. Our photos are incredible and we are so grateful to have such gorgeous memories. The beautiful photographs speak for themselves. We are so excited to get to work with him in another wedding we will be in next fall!

    Nick is the best!

    Nick is the best! I got married 5/29/2022 and could not have asked for a better photographer. We found Nick from our video team, Danleigh Videography, and instantly connected with him. We loved his timeless and colorful photography style. He sent us our gallery about 7 weeks after the wedding. We had so many events going on throughout the night and Nick didn't miss a beat - he was running around during our first dance to make sure the key things were captured. We had also sent him a video of the choreography beforehand so he knew what to expect. We had an issue with a delay in our party robot, and Nick ended up staying later than his contracted time to cover it!

    Even though my husband and I were knew Nick before the wedding, he quickly charmed his way into everyone else's hearts. Our family and friends felt so comfortable around, which makes a world of difference. 20/10 service!

    Nick is the best!!

    Nick was one of the first vendors we booked for our eventually 3-times postponed wedding and I am so grateful I found him. His beautifully natural, candid style of taking photos was just what we were looking for. Nick is so kind, professional, and his attention to detail is amazing. Aside from this he was also so understanding and flexible through all of our postponements. I can鈥檛 recommend him enough!

    One of a kind and an absolute pleasure to work with!

    Nick Cinea鈥檚 photography is truly one of a kind! He photographed our elopement ceremony in Brookline, MA, at the beautiful Larz Anderson Park on 7/25. Having never been to the park before, Nick took time prior to our ceremony to discuss the location with us, do his own research, and arrive early to scout out the best locations in the park to take photos. My wife and I, along with friends and family who we have shared our photos with, have been blown away by their high quality and the way in which he was able to capture the true authenticity of each moment. Nick鈥檚 talent was especially apparent in the fact that he could make photos of masked individuals looks so good and natural! Nick鈥檚 creative use of light with the surrounding scenery made for absolutely stunning shots. His timing was so impressive as he was able to capture our genuine emotions during our first look and all throughout the entire ceremony. Nick was an absolute pleasure to work with. His professionalism, pride in his work, and his friendly and outgoing demeanor, made it all such an exceptional experience. We recommended him 100%!

    Amazing!

    Nick was absolutely the best! He was with us from 2019 through all the COVID nonsense and was a god send. I cant say enough amazing things about Nick and his team. He has been so thoughtful and kind and easy to work with. He was stress free and really made the day something special!

    Nick Cinea Photography's reply:

    Thank you Gianpaolo! You two have been so easy and kind to work with as well. I'm so glad your big day was able to finally happen!

    Outstanding Photographer

    The photos of our son鈥檚 wedding are absolutely fantastic! Nick captured every aspect, each important moment, and every attendee with such clear focus and perfect lighting (and the lighting was challenging because it was dark under the tent). Yet Nick鈥檚 presence was never intrusive. I am using the picture he took of my husband and I dancing as my Facebook cover photo. Our refrigerator will soon be decorated with more of his wedding photos! Our son and his new bride are thrilled with their photographs. We highly recommend Nick Cinea Photography.

    Wonderful!

    Nick was wonderful to work with! He was extremely organized and took the time to get to know us, to help make our experience personal. Nick helped make our wedding day SO easy, so that we were truly able to enjoy everything. He made us, our families, and our bridal party feel at ease all day and kept us laughing and smiling the entire time. We're so lucky we found Nick, and we are grateful for his beautiful work!

    Absolute perfection!!!

    Nick is hands down one of the most talented people I have ever met. His capability of capturing authentic genuine moments is unlike any other. His work truly speaks for itself but what you may not know is how he himself is on your special day. He is positive, organize, professional, punctual, and is so easy going it feels as if he was apart the family. I have worked with Nick on other weddings as he did my own and so many more to come for my friends and family, I can say hands down he is someone I fully trust with all photography needs. He continues to stay consistent and his quality of work will take your breath away. If your looking for someone who will elevate your big day, look no more. He is a 10 out of 10. No amount of words could ever really put his magic behind the camera into perspective but I promise you, he will never disappoint.

    Amazing work, calming influence

    Full disclosure - my husband and I know Nick personally and we knew before we were ever engaged that we would want him as our wedding photographer. He has done several of our friends' weddings and I would absolutely recommend him to others.
    My husband is a photojournalist, which means he spends most of his time behind a camera and has a fairly critical eye. We wanted someone that would keep things laid back while also delivering pictures to that standard.
    Nick delivered on all fronts. He was flexible when we were scheduling our engagement session (which was tricky because we work opposite shifts) and delivered the photos in a timely manner.
    Throughout the planning process Nick kept in touch. He asked a lot of questions about our specific desires for the day, any special details we wanted recorded, and made recommendations for the timeline.
    On our wedding day, he worked with our DJ and wedding coordinator to keep us on track without ever making us feel rushed. He knew all our details off the top of his head and didn't miss anything we had discussed. We had a shot list that included a lot of extended family, and Nick and his second shooter Jason did a great job of getting us through everything quickly so we could enjoy our cocktail hour and reception with our guests.
    Nick delivered us hundreds of amazing shots and I couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience. I've attached a few of our favorites.

    Cinea Photography was the Perfect Choice

    While it was just one day, our wedding was in the works being planned for almost 2 years. With it easily being the biggest day of our lives, we wanted to make sure we had the best photos that would last a lifetime. Nick definitely did not let us down! From the first time calling him early on in the planning process you can tell he was knowledgeable, experienced, calm, fun to work with, trustworthy, and a true professional. Nick was able to help us with any questions we had immediately (even if they weren't photography related). We set up our meeting, where Nick went over everything his company offers, and after seeing many examples from previous weddings that Nick had worked, we knew this was a no brainer. We had our engagement photos done by Nick at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, CT. You can tell he had done previous shoots there by how he knew the perfect places to take photos and catch moments at the exact perfect times. Needless to say when we got the photos they were perfect, and something we were excited to use on our Save the Dates.

    Fast forward to the wedding day, while you're hoping everything goes to plan, just know with Nick there is no need to stress about the photography! He showed up to the hotel where we were getting ready with great energy to start the day off on the right foot. The ceremony was at St. Josephs Church in New Haven, CT and the reception at Cascades Fine Catering in Hamden, CT. Nick and his assistant photographer were beyond organized. They had previously visited both locations for us to scope everything out, and the really did not miss a single moment from the day. The photos he took of my wife and I, our wedding party, and all of our family and friends throughout the day and night really are second to none. The day goes by so fast, and we can definitely say we are happy to have gone with Nick Cinea Photography to capture all of these special memories.

    Nick is amazing!

    Nick was amazing! We used him for our engagement shoot and wedding and we couldn't have asked for anything better! He was so easy to work with and was so professional, reliable, and provides a high-quality service! He got our photos back so quickly and they came out AMAZING! Every time during the reception when he would see a group taking a picture he made sure to run over and capture the shot with his camera as well! My husband and I couldn't be happier with the memories Nick has captured for us to savor forever! We highly recommend Nick to everyone and anyone looking for a professional photographer looking for high-quality photos!

    Fantastic and easy to work with!

    Nick Cinea was our photographer for our engagement and wedding. I met him at a wedding show in Hartford where I was waiting for that one photography vendor to pop out at me. What caught me first was his friendly attitude and light, airy photography style which was exactly what I was looking for. From our first time working with him at our engagement shoot we were quick to tell him how uncomfortable my fianc茅 and I were in front of the camera. He had some great ways to get us to loosen up and have a ton of fun while producing amazing photos. The week of our wedding I filled out a questionnaire where I was able to add the timeline I created with my planner from the venue. He was so top notch on our wedding day that even our guests were complimenting him. He showed up early, dressed professionally and got to work right as I was ready. He followed the timeline that I had uploaded and we actually ran early on a few things which made the entire day a breeze. He captured so many beautiful memories and my husband and I will be forever grateful to him for allowing us to always have these photos.
