When I was looking for my wedding photographer one of my bridesmaids asked me if I had seen the work of Nilka Gissell and I answered: No but I will definitely take a look at her Facebook page. As soon as I started looking the wedding pictures taken by Nilka I fell in love with her work instantly; there was a spark in every picture that made me feel like WOW!!! At that precise moment I said to myself, yes I just found my wedding photographer!!! I contacted her via her official website, she answered very quickly and I signed the contract. When I met her personally on our first appointment to discuss the details of the contract and the services included in the selected package I knew she was going to make our wedding an unforgettable moment. On our love story session she made us feel so comfortable posing for the pictures, it was so natural and we had so much fun!!! I was so happy and satisfied with her work that day that I couldn’t imagine how great the wedding day was going to be!!! On our wedding day Nilka was spectacular, everyone could see how passionate she is about her work paying attention to every detail and making it so comfortable and easy to us on a day that the stress level is so high because so much is going on at the same time! Nilka is so professional, responsible, diligent, dynamic, friendly and so passionate about her work that I recommend her with my eyes closed! Choosing Nilka Gissell as my wedding photographer was one of the best decisions of my life because you only get to say I do once in a lifetime. Imagine our excitement to take a look at the pictures! When the pictures were ready and I took a look at them and it was a jaw dropping moment, every picture had its own story captured so perfectly! The pictures were stunningly beautiful; I felt that I was living through every single moment that she captured again, again and again! We will be forever grateful to Nilka Gissell for capturing the magic of every moment at our wedding day!!!Sent on 07/05/2015

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!

Nilka did an outstanding job with the engagement and wedding photos. She is professional, reliable, and friendly. Nilka was very responsive to our messages/emails, we didn't have any issues communicating. We were impressed the turnaround time of the wedding photos; we had access to a digital album about a month after the wedding. Overall, Nilka provided excellent service and we couldn't be happier with the photos.

Nilka Gissell did such an outstanding job capturing our wedding day! From the beginning she was very responsive to our emails and questions. We were impressed by how smooth everything went and could not be any happier with the final product. Gracias Nilka!

We got married back on May 2018 and Nilka was our photographer. The photos were taken at my house and at the venue (Rest Zafra del Caribe, Gurabo PR). She arrived on time and worked through the agreed time. She and her assistant were very professional and great to work with. The way that she managed the process was nice and made us feel less nervous. The photos came out great; like magazine photos. The colors and patterns were great even when no photoshop was used. She captured all the important moments including the ones that were posed and the ones that were not. Our package was digital and she delivered it via mail in a very nice package. When we saw the photos we were amazed and we loved them. Both my husband and I, my family, my bridal party, and friends; they all LOVED the photos. JUST AMAZING!!!! We totally recommend her...

I absolutely loooved working with Nilka! She’s extremely professional, hard working and takes amazing pictures! She will capture your perfect side every time! We had an engagement session in Dumbo, Brooklyn and our wedding was in San Juan, PR. I loved every single shot! She’s very responsive and she’ll give you tips on how to pose, so you come out looking your best every single time. I hope we get to work with her again in the future.

Nilka was our original photographer when we originally had our wedding in Puerto Rico in November 2017. We had to cancel the wedding and move it to NYC. Nilka kept communucation with us after hurruacne and cane to New York City to take our pictures the dollowong March. She didnt charge us extra and was very understandng. She was professional, on time and very helpful with the poses. She even put on my veil on me because my hair artist forgot to!!! I absolutely loved my pictures! She stuck with us when many other vendors didn’t even give us back our deposits back. I believe she travels to other prts of the US like Flordia. I would definately book Nilka for yor engagement, wedding or any other memorablw event!

My destination wedding was April 23 2017. I am so glad that I hired Nilka. She was quick to answer my emails and inquiries and her packages are great! I finally met her the day of the wedding and she was amazing to work with. She is kind and patient. I had a fussy three year nephew and she was great with him. She was focused and directed me quickly and always asked me if I was comfortable posing in different locations (which of course I was) and she was quick. You could tell she planned out her day and her vision. It was so great to work with her. When I told her of any image ideas I had she was down to do whatever and helped make it happen. She was a dream to work with and I can't wait to see the images. I would recommend her to anyone because she is amazing to work with!
Gerica · Married on 04/01/2017
Nilka was absolutely incredible. Although we did not get a chance to work with her before the wedding day, she made sure we knew exactly what to expect and made us feel entirely comfortable the entire day. She was working from the second she walked in to the end of the night. I was so nervous and on edge the morning of the wedding and Nilka was a calming presence throughout the entire process. She was efficient but never once did we feel rushed or bossed around. Aside from the planned shots she took so many candids without us even noticing! She was also creative in the composition of her shots so we don't feel like our pictures are cookie-cutter at all. They feel personal and completely ours. She was everything we were looking for in a photographer: energetic, creative, easy-going, and professional.We could not be happier with the memories Nilka captured for us!

Tasha · Married on 12/09/2016
Nilka was a wonderfully professional presence at our wedding. She made us feel at ease while capturing all the intimate moments of the day. The preliminary photos are great and we can't wait to see the finished product
Vivian · Married on 11/20/2016
It was a true pleasure having her in the wedding. Her work is spectacular and she makes every picture flow in the most comfortable way. Her work was so good that it has been difficult to choose the final photos for the album, because every photo captures the energy of the people and the beauty of the event. Funny story: The whole wedding reception came under the rain, but thanks to Nilka, her team, and their disposition to challenge the rain resulted in a spectacular set of photos full of movement, lights and essence.
Marcelle · Married on 09/09/2016
Nilka was absolutely wonderful. We were planning our wedding from Maryland with little time to go over to PR to meet vendors. I talked to at least 3 different photographers before I met Nilka. She was flexible to our needs and always had such a positive energy. On the day of the wedding she was kind and patient but professional and knew exactly what shots would look best. Our photos came in much more quickly than I expected and she sent it with a little personal touch. I couldn't have been happier with the quality of service. Thanks Nilka!

Lindsey · Married on 06/11/2016
Planning a destination wedding can be a little daunting, especially when you haven't ever been to the destination :) However, I was so happy I found Nilka. She is truly a professional. After going through her website I knew immediately she was the right photographer for our beach wedding. From the very beginning, Nilka was very responsive, easy to work with and very organized. She even gave me recommendations for other local vendors that I could work with. I met her the day of my wedding and immediately liked her! I have only seen a couple of images from the wedding (I just got married a couple of days ago) and have been blown away!! I can't wait to see the rest! Thank you Nilka for capturing the most special day of my life!
Luis · Married on 05/28/2016
Excellent service and professionalism. Loved the way she treated us and our guests. Very down to earth and respectful. The first time we met we didn't hesitate to have her as our wedding photographer. Now after our wedding we are extremely happy with that choice. Nilka gave an extra effort in every shot and was like a photo ninja... Didn't bother us at all. It our pleasure to work with her. Also provided us with some stunning preview pictures the same day of the wedding. We wouldn't mind to sit for another cup of coffee. Aileen & Luis.
Kristina · Married on 04/30/2016
I would not hesitate to book Nilka Gissell photography for one second. Her photos are absolutely stunning and beautiful and she was so easy to work with. She was very responsive, showed up on time and really knows how to capture amazing photos. Not only that but we had our wedding photos only 1 week after our wedding, that was incredible!! We were so pleased with the photos she took and all of our guests and family couldn't stop talking about how beautiful they came out. Thank you Nilka for the amazing you job you did and for helping us capture the most amazing day ever.

Nilka is fantastic! She is friendly, professional, timely, and flexible.
Pre-wedding she is very efficient, with a detailed questionnaire that she kept a print-out on the day of, so that we could be sure to get all the photos with family member arrangements we wanted.
Day of the wedding she arrived on time and quickly got started on pics of the accessories & rings. She arranged our first look and was great at finding alternative shot locations due to rain. She kept us dry and still got a lot of great portrait shots outdoors. Throughout the evening she captured many candid photos as well as us with all our guests.
Following the wedding, she provided a few 'sneak peak' photos the next day. And she delivered all of the images in less than 3 weeks (which is faster than the contract stated!).
I'm very happy with the quality of photos as well as artistic view she has to capture the moment.

Matt · Married on 09/18/2015
This review is long overdue. We were looking through the photos from our wedding and were reminded of Nilka's amazing talent, and how we had neglected to publicly commend her.
Nilka was the the perfect choice to photograph our special day. Neither of us are very good at posing for photos, but Nilka captured all the special moments, and managed to make us look natural, relaxed (no small feat, since we both get nervous and awkward when we know we are being photographed)
She met with us a couple of days before the wedding so that she could get to us, and find out more about what we wanted to get out of our pictures. Her warm and professional demeanor instantly put us at ease.
Words cannot express what a joy it was to work with Nilka, and the finished products were more than we could have hoped for. We highly recommend her and if we had it to do all over again, we would not change a thing.
Thank you Nilka!

I found out about Nilka as she had done my cousin's wedding. I was so happy I chose her as my photographer! She is very professional, super easy to work with and most importantly a true artist. She makes you feel very comfortable and gives you specific directions making it easy to pose. She was able to capture beautiful moments of us and our guests. I literally loved every single picture she took. I highly recommend her!!!
