Puerto Rico Wedding Photographer

About Me

Hi! I’m Nilka Gissell. I’ve been documenting weddings in Puerto Rico and abroad for over a decade. As a Puerto Rico based wedding photographer, I specialize in capturing love stories that celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of my clients. I understand the importance of representation and visibility in the wedding industry. That’s why I’m passionate about creating a safe and inclusive space for all. I want you to feel seen, heard and celebrated.

My approach to photography is candid and authentic with a focus on capturing genuine moments and emotions. I love working with couples who are not afraid to be themselves and express their love in their unique way.

Let’s go ahead and grab a cup of coffee over a video call and talk about your wedding. It’s important to me that we connect, and make sure we are a good fit for one another.

Serving Puerto Rico, NYC and anywhere in Between. Specializing in Laid-back Intimate Weddings and Elopements.
