I am Nilo, and I am a photographer based in Northern Virginia and serving Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland couples and clients. I specialize in wedding and portrait photography. Once in a blue moon, I love photographing babies and children that belong to my former clients because I love being their “forever photographer”. My photography style is light and airy, and I love outdoor ceremonies and receptions. Here are some frequently requested information by clients. I hope that you find this helpful in getting to know me as your wedding photographer.
My business philosophy is quiet simple and true to my heart. I believe in providing you with excellent service from the very beginning. My goal to provide you with beautifully curated photographs that will remind you of the commitment that you make to your partner on your wedding day. The photograph I capture will serve to bring beautiful memories of your wedding day back to you each time you walk past your framed photographs in your home and place of work.
I am a Canon girl! In my Jo Totes camera bag, you will find a Canon Mark 5diii and a backup along with various Prime lenses and a couple of zoom lenses. I have a lens for each portion of your wedding day. That is how I visualize your wedding day and pack them for easy access. Here is how I visualize a wedding day and the lenses I will need the most during that time: One lens to capture ALL of your gorgeous details, one to capture your First Look, one to capture gorgeous portraits of your bridal party and your family and friends, one for your ceremony without being interrupted, and one for your reception. In addition to that, I have off camera lighting gear that will light up every ceremony situation.
Photographing in natural light is my specialty making my style very light and airy. However, I love photographing events in all lighting situations and maintain my style. When it comes to posing, I love to capture you as your are: natural, beautiful, and in love! It is important to me to pose my clients in a very natural way and make the photograph a celebration of the moment and focus on my couple and the energy they emit as opposed to the pose.
My clients have full print rights to the digital photographs they receive. Nilo Burke Photography LLC. retains the copy rights of all photos, and my clients get to print and share their photographs with family and friends as well as on social media.
Best time to book
It is best to book your photographer 6-12 months before your wedding day. This time period gives you ample time to book the photographer that is a good fit for you.
If you have any additional questions, please contact me at Nilo@NiloBurke.com or contact me via the Contact page. Looking forward to hearing from you and working with you to photograph your Big Day!
