Hi! I'm Nilka Gissell. I've been documenting weddings 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.

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

I’d be really happy if you would let me capture your story. Remember it’s all about you!

Thanks for the cyber love!
