Hi! I'm a destination wedding photographer since 2011. I absolutely love being on the road exploring and hiking in new places. I feel most at home in the mountains, but you’ll find me traveling all over the US and overseas. When I’m not exploring or rock climbing, I’m looking for new ways to push myself outside of my comfort zone. I feel this is when I am the most inspired and create better and stronger work. I want to give my clients meaningful experiences that go beyond just taking a pretty pic. As an experience driven wedding photographer I want to create intimate moments for you and your partner.
I travel from Puerto Rico to New York and everywhere in between. I use a a natural, unobtrusive style to express your love story authentically.

Excellent photographer! Highly recommend!!
Nilka was awesome to work with from start to finish. If you’re considering hiring her, do it!
Nilka helped me plan a surprise proposal during my trip to San Juan and capture some amazing photos of the moment. She was very friendly and helpful in planning all the details before I came to Puerto Rico. We spoke multiple times on the phone before the day and she provided excellent advice to help make things perfect!
We ended up deciding to do the surprise proposal and photo shoot at Castillo San Felipe Del Morro in Old San Juan. It was a great location and allowed Nilka to capture some gorgeous photos.
Nilka was able to arrive to the location in advance and coordinate with me to get candid photos of the proposal. After the proposal we did a photo shoot around Del Morro. Nilka made us feel relaxed and at ease which allowed her to capture many wonderful photos of our special moment.
I would highly recommend working with Nilka. She is a talented and professional photographer along with being a kind person.Sent on 04/16/2021

Nilka was great!!! She was very patient, professional, responsive and most of all charming!!! She understood exactly ehat we wanted and made us feel very comfortable during our photo sessions. Hands down the best photographer around. She was very quick in editing and within a month of my wedding I had my album. I totally recommend her. :)Sent on 11/12/2013

Incredible photographer made our engagement so special
Nilka is an incredible photographer and amazing person! She suggested several breathtaking locations for my proposal, coordinated with me to take candid pictures of the proposal and then took stunning photos of us right after engagement. She was extremely communicative throughout the process and provided us with edited photos the next day. Highly recommended!Sent on 02/28/2019

She is very professional, creative, flexible, and fun. The work speaks for itself so do yourself a favor and call for an appointment today, we highly recommend her!
Capturing the best moments without you even notice. Nilka is among my prefer vendors. Her personality and commitment to a quality job makes her a winner.
