Welcome to Nilo Burke Photography. My name is Nilo, and I am pleased to welcome you to my site. Please stay a little while longer and take a look around. I would love to learn about you and your upcoming special event so that I can understand your vision and, hopefully, capture it for you.
Every year I enter the FREE contest that is Shoot & Share. Thousands of photographers from around the world enter this contest and vote for days on end for photographs of fellow photographers. This anonymous contest is something I look forward to every year in January/February. I, shamelessly, vote for hours on thousands of photographs from a diverse categories of photos such as Just the Bride, The Wedding Party, Wedding Details, Maternity, Babies, Engagement, etc.
This year I entered 50 photographs and was proud and elated to find out that 2 of my photos made it to the top 20th and top 30th percentile! That’s awesome and I am so thankful for everyone who voted for those photos. Of course the photo that won top 20th was the cake from Shanna and Jesse’s wedding. Their baker had included an edible Spiderman at the bottom of the cake for Shanna’s little boy, Colton! It is such a cute idea and I just had to photograph it. It quickly became one of my favorite images so I decided to submit it to the contest. I am so glad I did because it got top 20 percent!
The second image that won the top 30th percent vote was from Nicole and Tony’s wedding. Toward the end of their reception, we decided to take some photos on a swing that was next to their reception tent hanging on a glorious tree. I set my off camera flash behind her and captured this image of Nicole swinging which I totally love! I hope you enjoy these two and the rest of the images I submitted. Of course I had to submit TWO of my baby girl because she is my everything!
