Raleigh Wedding Photographer Reviews

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my photography!

One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is when I receive a review or testimonial about how my work enhanced someone’s wedding or event.

Here are some kind words from past brides and grooms on their experience with me.

I can’t even begin to praise Chris enough for everything he did for us. I was impressed by his work when I met him at a wedding showcase, so I hired him for my wedding. As I got to continue to work with him though, I realized I’d hit the jackpot with my photographer. He was so flexible when there was uncertainty around my venue being able to schedule my bridal portraits, and he made me look great in my pictures on an extremely hot day (no sweat in the pictures!). Whenever I texted or emailed him through the entire wedding process, he responded almost immediately. He showed up at the rehearsal without me knowing he would be there, because he wanted to get a feel for how the ceremony would go so he would get the best possible pictures the next day. This was not in his contract and he had no obligation to do it, which speaks to his commitment to great work. And, of course, he delivered on that the next day; he was so easy to work with, got pictures I didn’t even know he was taking when I later looked at them, and produced some incredible pictures. Save yourself the headache, and go with Chris Nieto as your photographer! I guarantee you will have zero regrets!

Chris was awesome! He got shots and moments that we didn’t know happened. My new husband planned surprises throughout the day and Chris caught all the details as well as my reaction. We did a first look and Chris was able to capture the moments up to the first look and after from all different viewpoints. We got our sneak peak pictures the day after the wedding and got all our photos by the time we got back from our honeymoon two weeks later. Chris’ prices were reasonable and within our budget. Definitely would recommend!

Chris and his photos are absolutely amazing!!! Not only is he great at what he does, but he has an awesome personality and is super flexible. Both our engagement pictures and our wedding was about three hours from his home, but he was more than willing to travel to get the pictures we wanted. I had originally set my wedding date for May; however, we had the opportunity to move it up to February, three months earlier than anticipated. I let Chris know this ONE MONTH before my new wedding date and he was more than happy to work with us! He did a fantastic job and I HIGHLY recommend him!!!

Chris is amazing! When I looked through my pictures I was beyond impressed at the moments he captured. Chris is very professional as well as his second shooter. She was also lovely. I would recommend nieto photography to anyone. His style was exactly what I was looking for. This guy is talented!

Hiring Chris and Nieto Photography for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! Chris has a wonderfully creative eye and is incredibly responsive. He shot both our engagement photos and wedding photos and we are so pleased with the end results for both. We’ve received many compliments from our family members and friends on the artistry of our photos and also how professionally Chris and his second shooter handled our wedding day. We were also impressed to receive our photos exactly two weeks after the wedding! We highly, highly recommend Chris.

I am usually not one with words, but even if I was, I do not think I could accurately portray just how great of an experience I had having Chris as my wedding photographer. From the very beginning, he went above and beyond to understand what we wanted, researched and scoped out scenery/lighting if necessary, and did whatever he needed to do to capture that special moment for us. From proposal, to engagement pictures, bridal portraits, and then our wedding, the pictures just grew more and more amazing. And when I say amazing, I mean they look like they came straight out of a magazine. I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better. If I could give brides one word of advice as they plan their wedding, it would be to book Chris. Your wedding pictures last forever, and his work is the best of the best.

Lastly, his passion and enthusiasm for photography is unmatched. And that always goes a long way.

I met Chris a few years ago before I was engaged and after seeing his work I knew I wanted him as my wedding photographer one day! Finally when the day came, he was first on the list to book! His quality of work is amazing, his attention to detail is on point and his ability to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere is apparent in our pictures. Our bridal party had such a good time with him and the pictures!

As a bride you can’t wait to relive your wedding day again and again through your pictures and Chris creates that perfect story. The night of my wedding I already had a few image samples to look through and then after just a couple weeks had the rest. Each picture is perfect, capturing everything I had hoped for! I continue to recommend Chris to friends, family and brides I meet!

Thank you Chris!

I cannot describe how fantastic Chris Nieto is as a photographer. I was really against getting engagement pictures and bridal portraits because it felt unnecessary, but Chris included it in his package and my mom pushed for it. He let us choose the locations, and then he created some of the most beautiful pictures I’ve ever seen. I often feel engagement pictures look cheesy or too staged, but he captured it in a way that it looked like art. For our engagement pictures, he let us bring our dogs along for the second set of pictures, and little did I know our oldest would pass away unexpectedly 3 months later. I look at those pictures every single day. Not only are they beautiful, but they capture our little family in such a way that you can truly see the love between us. These pictures are now one of my most cherished possessions, and I’m SO glad I hired Chris. He was early for everything, responded quick, traveled through the snow and ice, and I really felt like he listened to what I wanted unlike a lot of wedding vendors who want to do things how they are comfortable. Like I said in the beginning, words cannot describe how talented Chris is so just know you will have timeless pictures of precious memories that will last you a lifetime.
