Nieto Photography – Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Welcome to Nieto Photography and thank you for visiting my site. I am committed to providing a high-level of service to all my clients. I am a Raleigh wedding photographer specializing in modern portraiture and documentary style photojournalism. I use a combination of natural light and strobe lighting for my weddings and portraits. I have been capturing brides’ special days for the past 17 years. It is my goal to help make your wedding day run smoothly and to be less stressful. You have all the details planned out for your big day, and I know you are looking for that perfect photographer to tell your story, no matter the circumstances (rain, snow, night).  I am known for putting everyone at ease and capturing all the priceless moments, all while blending in with the crowd; not to mention my quick turn around time. My attention to detail and extensive experience with lighting makes my portrait work stand out from the rest. I call Raleigh my home base, but I travel all over North Carolina and the East Coast.

When I started my business in 2006, my focus was to deliver fantastic wedding images along with unrivaled customer service. And according to my customers, I have been succeeding: returning phone calls and emails within minutes and with amazing photos. I let me clients know that unless I’m sleeping or shooting I will be communicating with you, one way or another. Even after you pay me, I still will talk with you. My attention to your wedding and images doesn’t change even after I have shot your wedding or delivered them.

Take a look around my website and portfolios. Let me know what questions you may have. I provide custom wedding quotes for the needs of each individual client.
