Thank you for taking at look at Nakasato Photography! We are a husband & wife photographer team. Both Ben & I are excited about the opportunity to work with you.
There are some things we just do different. For one we meet any prospective bride & groom in person- it is very important to us to start out building a relationship with our couples from the beginning. We will help answer any questions you may have about us and our work and also be able to show you samples of our work including our very popular Blu-ray/DVD slideshows. It is important that you feel we meet your style of photography- after all we are with you all day on the biggest day of your life! :) We want to make sure we are a perfect fit and know that we are here for not just your wedding but we'd love to be along for all your other future life moments. :) We know that choosing a photographer is an important decision- we promise we are NO Obligation from the get-go and will be here to help with any questions if they arise. If we meet we do NOT expect any decision to be made that day. PLEASE do your homework and search around - we'd love to be an option or the photographer you choose if you feel we are perfect for your day. We take great pride in the work we do and we set aside a lot of time and devotion to making your day a success. We continue to grow our skills and knowledge in growing photography trends by attending workshops, conventions and continue to use the latest in top quality equipment & gear. I (Michelle) am also a huge fan of Pinterest and LOVE any ideas you may like to incorporate into your day. :) We only accept a small number of weddings per year to devote our time and energy into providing the best service we can to the weddings we accept. We have a passion for photography and a love for capturing life’s moments. We are completely inspired by couples in LOVE- it's what motivates and drives us. We’d love to capture your day and provide you with not just images but a lasting friendship and memories that will last a lifetime. All the best, Michelle & Ben Nakasato We'd LOVE to meet! Contact us for a NO-OBLIGATION meet n' greet at: michelle@nakasatophotography.com or 414-810-9889 Read less

There are no words to describe how amazing Michelle and Ben are!!! They did our engagement photos as well as our wedding and they are so passionate about what they do it shows through the insanely beautiful and breathtaking pictures they take. They are so energetic, kind, fun, enthusiastic and overall fantastic to be around you couldn't ask for a better pair to share your day and for them to capture it all for you. I haven't had a single doubt that the pictures taken for me on my big day, a day you can never recapture, are above and beyond anything I could have asked for. They had a slideshow already playing with pictures from the ceremony and with the bridal party that were stunning and a nice treat for guests to get a sneak peek :) I wish I could get married all over so that I could work with them again!!!! If you need a photographer stop looking, Michelle and Ben are it. They're the best I've seen out there and you will not be disappointed :))

We couldn't be happier in our decision to choose Ben and Michelle to photograph our wedding day! They took such interest in learning about us so they could best capture our story on our wedding day. We were so happy with their ability to capture a wide variety of pictures in a short amount of time. Michelle is extremely creative and has a great ability to capture the perfect picture in a new setting very quickly. Ben has an eye for detail and captures everything you're too busy to appreciate on your wedding day. Not only did we love them, but many of our guests commented on how wonderful our photographers were. We are thrilled with the sneakpeaks and are eager to see all the pictures from our day. We would highly recommend Nakasato for any occasion! They are amazing people and excellent photographers!

Ben and Michelle Nakasato were amazing to work with! I had the privilege to attend a wedding where they took the photographs and I loved how they captured the moments without getting in the way or slowing down all that happens on a wedding day. I remembered that and wanted to track them down for my own wedding (made easy by the business cards with the website for viewing my friend's wedding photos). My husband and I are so pleased with how they covered our wedding day - their personalities are perfect for this line of work. The sneak peaks are fabulous and we can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and videos! I would hire them again in a second and definitely recommend them to others.

Ben & Michelle are simply AMAZING!
I'm a little biased as I've know Ben & Michelle personally for 5 years. I was in the bridal party of their very FIRST wedding! Even then doing that practice lets see if we like doing this photography stuff they were SO amazing and those pictures turned out wonderful and they've gotten even better as they years have gone on. I started following their Facebook page and just LOVED what I saw. Every session is unique and different in it's own way. I knew that when I got engaged I wanted them to do our engagement session and of course wedding. I knew they were busy but didn't think they'd be too busy. One day I jokingly messaged Michelle asking her what 2014 looked like. (This was early 2013.) THEY ALREADY HAD WEDDINGS BOOKED? I couldn't believe it! Then again I could, They really are amazing at what they do. So I quickly booked them BEFORE I was even engaged. :) Now my fiancé ( Husband now ;) ) was not quite sure about getting them to come ALL the way to Nebraska…… His thought was we can find some one just as good here. Well after meeting with him he TOTALLY changed his mind! He couldn't believe how professional and organized and well put together they were
They KNOW what they are doing.

The night of the rehearsal. Were going through the ceremony and putting everyone in place. ( I'm very OCD and like things symmetrical ) Where I was on the stage I felt that everything was right. Michelle pulled me aside and showed me how far off everything was on her camera. No one would have ever known how bad the pictures would have looked till the day was over. It's the little details like that. They have an eye for it! I could go ON & ON!

But truly honestly Nakasato Photography is worth every penny and you create life long memories and friendships….. Im running out of charters so I have to stop. :)

I am not even sure where to start...we LOVED working with Ben and Michelle Nakasato. We hired them to shoot our May wedding as soon as we could once we met them. They are professional, enthusiastic, passionate, fun, personable, creative and really make it easy to relax which is a great combination! We did an engagement shoot, and then they came and photographed our rehearsal dinner boat cruise and then the actual wedding. All three experiences were absolutely amazing and we have wonderful photos of everyone who was there and all of the action. Because they're young and fun they fit in with the crowd.They were very interested in getting to know us and that made things really easy.
After meeting with them we also decided to do a first look. I wasn't sure if this was something I had wanted to do but after talking to Michelle we decided to do one and it was absolutely the right choice. After the wedding, my husband and I both noted that we never really noticed either Ben or Michelle during the ceremony, but the wonderful photos they took are proof that they were there!
They truly made us feel special and I am glad they were there to share in our special day. I would use them again in a heartbeat! The pictures from our wedding turned out absolutely beautiful! Ben and Michelle are incredibly creative and I know that we have some very unique photos of our special day. We haven't yet received the video but I am sure that it will be amazing as well. I highly recommend them for any occasion.

First, off I want to say that Michelle and Ben are wonderful photographers. From the very first meeting, we knew they were the ones that were going to be doing our wedding photos.They definitely captured our day in a way we couldn't even explain. We loved our engagement session that they did as well, they gave us a taste of what the actual wedding day would be like. No matter what, you could always hear that shutter going, and you knew they were capturing every tiny moment. That's what we wanted in a photographer. They even got hard to shoot pictures, since we had our dog in both our wedding and engagement pictures; sometimes she can be uncooperative. From start to finish, they were always there to answer questions and guide us in the right direction. Ben has a way with detail shots, that we have never seen and just adds that extra pop to your photographs. I would recommend Nakasato Photography to anyone that is looking for fun, outgoing, and carefree photographers that take phenomenal pictures.

We couldn't be happier with choosing Michelle and Ben to photograph our wedding! From day one communication was very easy and fast. They are both very easy to get along with which made both of us more comfortable in front of the camera! We got the pictures and DVD back from our wedding last week and were just blown away, they captured everything we wanted at the wedding and saw so much more! I didn't cry at our wedding but when my husband and I watched the DVD they put together I was tearing up, it is perfect! I would definitely recommend Nakasato Photography!

My husband and I got married this past November and we still comment about how much we love our wedding photos.

When we first met Michelle and Ben from Nakasato Photography we were instantly excited to work with them. They both had such an energy and passion for what they do. We loved how prepared they were for our meeting showing examples of past work and things we could do with our photos. We liked that they had so many options to turn our photos into art.

From fast response time on questions, creative insight into engagement and wedding location sites, and amazing photos for your big day we promise you won't be disappointed with Nakasato photogaphy. We plan on using them again when we start having kids for newborn photos.

Michelle and Ben Nakasato, with Nakasato Photography, are not only amazing artists, but also incredible people. We knew capturing the memories of our wedding day through pictures was something really important to us. We interviewed several different photographers and agencies. Immediately after meeting Michelle and Ben, we knew we found our photographers! Michelle and Ben met with us and before getting down to the business (contract, pricing, etc.) they took time (LOTS of time) to get to know us as people, as a couple, and to get a sense of what we wanted for our special day. Our engagement session was a blast! We had an amazing afternoon downtown Milwaukee - Michelle and Ben capturing all the love, smiles, and joy we shared as a couple! Our wedding day was even better! Michelle and Ben even scoped out our church ahead of time to become familiar with the area and lighting! Talk about going the extra mile! Our family and friends RAVED about how wonderful our photographers were. Michelle and Ben were so enthusiastic and fun. They made everyone feel comfortable as they snapped shot after shot! (HIGHLY recommend their photo backdrop and props at the reception! SO MUCH FUN!) Their attention to detail, passion, and sincere love for photography and their clients makes them stand apart from other photographers. Their work speaks for itself - their pictures are artistic, beautiful, and memorable. And once you meet them - you'll instantly feel like you're among friends. Thank you, Michelle and Ben, for capturing all our special moments. We've found photographers that we would want to capture all the stages in our lives... - Amanda & Tim Mazurkiewicz

Nakasato Photography is a unique husband and wife photography team who takes it to a whole other level. They are creative and hands down one of the best parts of our wedding day. The images they captured continually take me back to our special wedding day. They really listened and accomodated some special photos we wanted to make sure to have like our dove release and "First Moment." Michelle and Ben took more pictures than I could imagine and stayed the whole night. They even set up a photo backdrop so our families could have professional pictures taken that night while dressed up and all together. They went out of their way to bring props and make it a blast! We are so thankful for the smiles and details they captured! I highly recommend Nakasato Photography for any special event, you will not be disappointed and it will be the best decision you made!
