Your wedding is a time to kick back, celebrate your love, your loved ones, and party your ass off. My job... well, it's more than just a job. I'm not in it for a paycheck. I love and feel beyond fortunate for what I do. I want to be right there celebrating with you and experiencing all the laughter, adventure, tears, nervous sweats, brews chugged, cake smashed, that one friend who really likes to shake it on the dance floor... all of it, right through the viewfinder.
With every click of the shutter, a memory immortalized.
I seek clients that don't feel like clients, but rather friends. In zero way do I want to feel like some strange dude with a camera.
I strive to create a comfortable environment, in front of and around the lens. So share that sense of humor, I'm impossible to offend. Let's crack a brew and swap stories. Ask me questions, if it's wedding related, I've probably got answers. I can tie a tie and bustle a dress, I'm there to lend a hand.
I'm down for anything. If you want to bushwack 10 miles to your elopement waterfall, let's go. If you're having a pirate wedding, I hope ye know I be dressin' up wit' ye. Pop the champagne in my direction, that shot will be wicked. Whether you're dancing with fire or wandering waist-deep in the ocean, I'm ready to be right there alongside you capturing every moment.

Nilas Photography - Yosemite Wedding Photographer
We had a destination wedding near Yosemite in August 2018. It was a multi day event and I was looking for a photographer who was flexible, and whose pictures fit my wedding's style. Nilas Photography was it. He was initially out of my budget, but I couldn't find any photographer who fit my criteria, and adjusted my budget to make him work -- and I'm SO GLAD I DID. Michael was amazing. He was there to capture all of the little moments that were important to me in my wedding, without being obtrusive.Sent on 03/11/2019
My husband is notorious for being a poor subject for photos -- he never looks like himself because he gets all stiff. Michael and my husband got along so well, it was like they were old friends. It's amazing how this made the whole wedding seem more at ease.
Michael's photos capture the essence of the moments -- the emotions that bring the wedding day back to life when you look at them years later. Things like a curious child, a father looking at his newborn baby (my wedding was very kid friendly), and my exasperated husband.
I also wanted "the photo" -- you know what I'm talking about -- the photo that encapsulates all of the reasons why you hire a photographer in the first place -- the quintessential photo that says -- "THAT was my wedding" -- and Nilas gave that to me. I'll forever be grateful for that.
Take a look at his portfolio, and if you like his photos, hire this guy. I totally recommend him. My family was so impressed with his pictures, in fact, that he's photographing my brother's wedding in July!

Michael shot our wedding in February, and we couldn't be happier with the results! He made sure to capture every special moment from beginning to end, and provided a wide variety of elegant and fun photos that truly showed what a fantastic day it was. He also did a great job of locating beautiful and unique backgrounds for our pre-ceremony photos, as well as our engagement photos. We would highly recommend Nilas Photography for any occasion!Sent on 05/09/2017

Michael is professional and very flexible. We wanted professional photographs but didn't want to break the bank and he was definitely our man. He really caught some beautiful moments and some great expressions. I would absolutely use him again for a wedding or any other photography needs.Sent on 04/14/2016
Wedding Photographer Guy Price Rates
Hello there and congrats on the engagement! This deal offers a free engagement session to those who book my most popular wedding package. Engagement sessions normally run at about $300, but I'm thinking we can just cut that cost out of the picture and get to know each other with a free creative engagement session in nature or urban settings. Cheers!
