Logan + Danny

Danny + Logan Married at Oak Creek Farm

Friends,

I’ve known Logan and Danny for so many years. Danny went to elementary school with my little brother Brian. I’ve seen Danny grow into the handsome, kind, and hardworking young man from a young age. When he met Logan and introduced her to us, we loved her instantly. I feel like I’ve known Logan just as long as Danny. Their families consist of the very best people on earth. They are as good as they come.

A couple of years ago when I saw Logan and Danny’s proposal photos on Instagram, I was so excited! When Logan asked me to meet her and Danny to talk about their wedding photography, I was probably more excited than they were (if it’s possible) to talk about their wedding detail. Logan is a beautiful modern bride bride who talked about planning different aspects of her wedding. Danny is a sweet young man who looked at her bride-to-be with so much love in his eyes. It was so good to just be present there and talk to them about their upcoming wedding at Oak Creek Farm in Orange, Virginia.

This wedding was special to me in so many ways. I felt like I was with family the entire time, and it was partly true to some extent. My baby brother was the best man at the wedding! I was so proud of him and his speech. Everything he said about Logan and Danny was straight from the heart and so beautiful! There were other young men in the bridal party that I had known since their days in elementary school with my baby brother.
I can’t tell you just how special I felt to have just been there and witnessed all the love. Capturing their Big Day as the photographer was just the cherry on top. Here are some of my absolute favorite photos from the wedding. I know you are going to love them as much as I do!

Happy Easter 2017 I Nilo Burke Photography

Happy Easter, friends!

It is only by God’s grace and Jesus’ sacrifices that we celebrate Easter today in a Free nation. That is so much to be thankful for, not the least of which is family!!! As you’ve probably seen on the blog that my sister-in-law welcomed her little baby boy last September, so this is a pretty special Easter for all of us as we are celebrating it with yet another family member sent directly from God so that we can love on him!

A couple of weeks ago, baby Luke was baptized and we got to witness the joyous ceremony. Afterwards we went to my sister-in-law’s home and spent some much-needed time with the family. (There is nothing in the world, no pain, no sadness, that solid Family Time can’t fix, especially if you’ve got a family like mine!) I got to photograph a few items that Luke will forever cherish and will pass down to his children on the occasion of their baptism. My sister-in-law did a wonderful job of picking out a super sweet outfit for Luke’s baptism. My mother-in-law, like she does always and will forever continue to do, made a GORGEOUS and not to mention DELICIOUS cake that Nick and I both thought was made by a professional baker! It was so amazing and we event got to go home with some of it! I made one of my favorite appetizers, a 7-layered Mexican Bean Dip (click HERE for the recipe) and I have to tell you, it was gone in the blink of an eye! Everything was so delicious. The company was warm and comforting. The weather was gorgeous, and baby Luke was the center of attention. I have to say even Lexy, at almost 1.5 years of age, did very well and behaved for us for the most part. She even played with her cousin Luke. Although she may have made him cry a bit by taking his toy, but I am sure Luke will forgive her for that!

I hope you enjoy these photographs because I loved our time together and look forward to many more gatherings.

Here is to you and your family on this Easter weekend!


Monica & Patrick I Happy 6-month Wedding Anniversary

Monica and Patrick are one of the most down to earth and kind people I’ve met in my life. Their wedding day was filled with laughter, joy, and so much love as they were surrounded by their closest family and friends to celebrate each other and commit themselves to each other for life. Everything about her wedding was perfect! The reception was held at the beautiful Rappahannock Cellars Winery and Vineyard on a perfect Saturday in October. When I spoke to Monica and Patrick earlier in the year, she indicate to me that photographs were very important to her and that she wanted me to capture the day thoroughly and completely. Well that wasn’t a problem for me because I am an “over shooter” and I would much rather over deliver to my clients than not. When Monica said that, it was as if she had ready my mind. I knew right away that their wedding was going to be beyond beautiful!┬áMonica and Patrick, I pray that your life is filled with true love as you and Patrick walk your journey and bring life and joy to the world around you.┬áCongrats to Mr. and Mrs. Moniz and Happy 6-month Anniversary. Enjoy these highlights from their day to share in their joy!

Monica’s dress is beautiful, and she chose a variety of styles for her EIGHT bridesmaids that complimented them all so wonderfully!
