“We used Nick Nishizaka for our wedding last November, and it wouldn’t have been the same without him. Nick made us feel at ease and comfortable during our sessions, which with a wedding in full swing isn’t easy. Our pictures came out beautifully, with a great mix of casual and priceless moments captured forever. He has a great eye and is willing to either share his vision or follow your ideas at every step of the way. Not only were the photos beautiful, but he was professional and prompt from start to finish. Family and friends were all very impressed, and looking back, we are so happy we had Nick there with us!” – Lauren and Matthew

“As an amateur photographer, I was extremely picky when picking our wedding photographer. So much so, that my wife stopped recommending people as I would always find fault in there work. Needless to say, it was tough! This is when I found Nick. Immediately, I was floored with his work. So elegant, yet modern. Nearly all of the work we saw from him told a story. This is what we wanted. Quality photos that were more than just pictures. They would be able to tell the story of our day. Immediately my wife and I asked to meet Nick to discuss packages and to see more of his work. When we met Nick, it wasn’t just meeting a photographer. It was as if we were reunited with an old friend. His personality was simply awesome. Extremely nice, funny and HONEST. The meeting did NOT feel like a business transaction, which was great because we hated those! We truly felt, after walking away from the meeting, that Nick WANTED to photograph our wedding. We couldn’t be happier with Nick’s work. From the Engagement photos to the wedding photos – they are extremely well done. The quality of the images and composition is nothing short of professional. We consider ourselves lucky that we found such a gem with all of the wedding photographers out there. Not just a great photographer but an awesome person! I’d recommend Nick to any bride and groom looking for a photographer!” – Corri and John

“Thanks to Super Storm Sandy, we were a month out from our wedding with no photographer. Our friend recommended Nick and we were just relieved to get the photographer crossed off our list of To Do’s. What we didn’t realize then was how little time we gave Nick to prepare. Given the theater setting of our venue, Nick had various types of lighting to deal with from stage lights, to spotlights, chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling lights, Christmas lights and theater canopy lights, and the ultimate – marquee lights. You name it, there was just about every kind of light and Nick was prepared on the day of because this pro had completed his recon mission a couple of weeks in advance. On our big day, Nick and Keith were there bright and early and made our day less hassled with their easy-going nature. You wouldn’t have guessed that they had to negotiate 3 different venues with their heavy camera equipment in a few short hours! Still, they might as well have been ninja camera men as you never really saw them unless it was a photo session. We love the various photo types from the artistic to the fun-loving, color photos and black & white. They really captured the beauty of the venue as well as some candid moments. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Nick and Keith for capturing our special moments. And a special thanks to Nick, who beautified our pictures even more in his studio. We look forward to framing your photos to make our house a home.- Dawn and Wycliffe
“Nick, Thank you so much for capturing all of the special moments of our wedding day.  We LOVE the photos!  From our first contact with you, you have been a pleasure to work with-all of the phone calls, emails back and forth, and helpful suggestions were much appreciated.  Your attention to detail, including preparation for our wedding, day-of expertise and editing were professional and many of our guests have had wonderful remarks to share about you.  Both you and your second shooter, Ryan, were extremely professional and easy to be around.  We love how our entire wedding day was captured, from getting ready at the salon to the very last dance.  The quality of your photos is exceptional!  We can’t wait to put many of the photos you shot of our wedding day up in our home to enjoy for years to come.- Leandra and Michael
“Nick, thank you so much for capturing these shots.. Now I remember why I fell in love with your work immediately after stumbling onto your site. My wife and I can’t thank you enough for your vision and creativity. You are a true professional in every way. Planning a wedding is never an easy task but you were the exception. Thank you so much for your flexibility and putting up with us.” – Ingrid & Juan
“Nick photographed our August wedding. From our first conversation, he was an absolute pleasure to work with. Nick is a true professional with an outstanding portfolio, terrific credentials, and years of experience, but he’s also a really pleasant, friendly, down-to-earth person who understands the pressures and stresses of a wedding day. Over a series of phone and in-person conversations, he listened to our priorities and concerns and worked with us to design a package that met our needs and fit our budget. He was always just an email or a phone call away to discuss wedding day schedules, family portraits, logistics, etc. On the day of, he and his second shooter, Ryan, were the perfect wedding photographers– funny, gracious, and professional, but also somehow invisible!We could not be happier with the product. The photos are absolutely gorgeous and we’ve received so many compliments from our guests. Nick beautifully captured the colors, textures and movements of the whole day, from the getting ready to the late-night dancing, but also the emotions and the little moments, which are so important because the day goes by in such a blur! And since the wedding, Nick has worked closely with us to accommodate our touch-up and editing requests, making sure that we are 100% satisfied. He is a real gem– we heartily recommend Nick for your special event or portraits!” – Debby & Ian

“I loved all of them! I’m so excited there’s still more to see! How did you make me look so slim?!?!?! Magic lens? I love them, love them, love them.” - Theresa & Paul
“I just came back from lunch with Chris. We agreed that we will ask you for taking photos of our baby’s 1 year birthday as a client if it is ok with you. We realized that you specialize in weddings per your website. I saw those wedding pictures and thought that they are just like a screenshot of a romantic movie. I love them. However, I saw your pictures of Haru this morning and concluded that they are the best! I love them too much. I forwarded some pics to my sister and she went crazy. THEY ARE AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for taking the pictures. Unbelievably great. You are really talented. Thank you again!- Etsuko & Chris
