Finding a wedding photographer was one of the more difficult tasks in my wedding planning process, because the ones I met had generic (I think cheesy) wedding pictures, were of poor quality or simply extremely expensive. This was until I met Nelson. During our first meeting with Nelson I knew we would book him; however, he insisted we think about it so we are not pressured ( which vendors never do !!!). Leading up to the wedding I found ideas of pictures that were of interest and sent them to Nelson, who on my wedding day ensured I had every picture Idea I found. The entire wedding he took hundreds of pictures, yet was never a bother- he simply blended in ! Once I received the finished product from him, I had tears in my eyes. The pictures were not only beautiful, but truly captured our wedding and the emotions of the day. Words can't describe how greatful I am to Nelson for his amazing work and how much I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

When we began the huge (and stressful) task that is wedding planning, my husband and I agreed that photos needed to be a priority. I was an extremely indecisive bride to be, but I was sure of two things: I didn't want a video (having someone follow me around filming makes me uncomfortable) and I did not want your typically cheesy wedding photos.

When we first met with Nelson, he told me that he likes to tell a story with his pictures. This is exactly what he does. I don't regret not having a video because Nelson perfectly captured the vibe of our day. He made us so comfortable and it shows in his beautiful work. No forced poses- just me, my husband and my favorite people in the world celebrating.

Nelson's portfolio speaks for it's self. The quality of his work is amazing and everyone I know has told me that I have the best wedding pictures they have ever seen. What they don't know is that Nelson was professional, responsive and just a really great guy to work with.

When my wedding venue shut down with no notice, he was one of my first calls. I didn't know where we would end up getting married, but I knew that Nelson had to be our photographer. I'm so happy that we hired Nyla Gray... It was probably the best decsion we made.

Take if from the father of the bride, Nylagray is the photographer you can trust to capture every memory of your special day. Nelson’s work speaks for itself. Beautiful sense of light. Artful composition. But what makes Nelson and his team so unique is how unobtrusive, accommodating and professional they are. They never once got in the way but were somehow always there to capture a special moment. Fast and efficient, they allowed the bride and groom to join the reception quickly after they created many beautiful shots of the couple. Importantly, Nelson has a genuine respect for the family that made him a joy to be with. I can’t recommend him more strongly.

I cannot say enough great things about Nelson!
For me, choosing a photographer was one of the most important things in planning our wedding so I did a ton of research and met with a number of photographers. I knew Nelson was the right one as soon as I met him.
First off, his photos are incredible. Looking through the photos was like reliving the wedding in the best way. He captures these beautiful candid moments that really express the emotion of the moment – when there is a photo of someone laughing, you can almost hear the laughter when you look at the photo.
He is so adaptable (necessary for our wedding since there was a very last minute venue change!) and easy to work with and has such a pleasant, calming demeanor which is so wonderful to be around on what can be such a hectic day. Throughout the whole process he was more than available to talk about ideas or answer any questions in the months leading up to the wedding.
As someone who is camera shy feeling like somebody is in my face with a camera can make me feel a bit self conscious but I didn’t even notice Nelson until I wanted him to take a specific shot and then he was right there! He has a way of just making everyone comfortable in front of his lens. People who have looked through my photos have said that they are the best wedding and engagement photos they’ve ever seen and of course I have to agree!

We searched high and low for great photographers in NYC and were immediately drawn to Nelson's vibrant, unique style - not a cheesy, gimmicky, overly hipster, or cringe-worthy-in-20-years picture in sight! He met with us at the Ace Hotel for a coffee and brought slideshows of his photos and sample albums for us to look at, and we knew that his calm demeanor and great ideas would be a perfect fit for our wedding.

Throughout the planning process he was always quick to respond to emails (usually a day or less) and the responses were always thoughtful and detailed. He also asked us for a list of shots that we wanted (details, bride/groom, formals, important family members, etc.) and guided us through the best places to shoot on the day of the wedding. We planned out the balloon release "first look" photo in advance and he was always supportive of our ideas!

Nelson arrived early on wedding day and kept everyone cool even as we were rushing to get our florals in time for the bride and groom pictures. It was a little rainy but Nelson didn't even skip a beat - he already knew where to move our first release look (from a blue brick wall in DUMBO to a colorful mural under the Brooklyn Bridge) and coordinated it with the second shooter seamlessly. We were a little pressed for time before the ceremony but we never felt rushed or panicked. Throughout the ceremony Nelson was quiet and unobtrusive and captured so many genuine moments we didn't even know were happening! The reception was a great party and he got some priceless shots of our family and friends - a great balance of posed shots and hilarious candids.

He sent us a "sneak peek" first look photo not too long after the wedding, a slideshow preview of photos following that, and then two CDs of our photos and an online gallery. We were so impressed with his professionalism throughout the entire process and will treasure our wedding photographs for a lifetime to come.

Nelson was absolutely amazing. We have finally started going through our wedding pictures to make an album, and it is going to be impossible because all of his pictures are incredible. Nelson was wonderful throughout the entire process - always got back to me quickly, provided advice and guidance when I asked, and was early the day of the wedding. We had given him a shot list, and he checked in with us several times during the evening to remind us of pictures we still had not done, etc. The pictures we got were better than we even hoped - amazing portraits, candids, etc. My friend told me they look like a magazine spread, and I couldn't agree more, or recommend him more highly!

We had the most awesome experience with Nelson! Living in Australia and organising a New York wedding made things a little more difficult given the first time we would meet our photographer was on the day of our wedding! I found Nelson through some creative googling and stumbled across his blog (which is regaulalry updated and gives a great first impression!) and right from that moment we were captivated by his story-telling style of photography! It was far from your usual 'orchestrated, cheesy photo moments'.

For 18 months Nelson indulged me in my email communication, coming up with ideas, thinking of things to organise, wondering what to do with this, etc, etc and his replies were always very prompt and detailed! He was great to communicate with - the entire time I was 100% confident of Nelson's ability to do an awesome job.

Nelson showed up on time on the day, was very good at just going with the flow and did not complain once about the temperature nearing 100F!

In short, we cannot recommend Nelson highly enough. His prices are VERY reasonable and the quality of work is outstanding - looking back at the photos feels like I'm there reliving the day all over again. Nelson is also an absolute pleasure to work with and easily accomodates any differing circumstances i.e. living OS we were able to organise payment methods and terms contrary to what he might normally do which was one less thing to worry about!

Go with NylaGray - you will not be disappointed!

The minute we met Nelson, we knew he was different from the other (cheesy) wedding photographers we had met with- Nelson is personal, warm, and understands that wedding photography can still be tasteful and stylish. We loved his portfolio and thought his prices were very reasonable.
When we received our wedding photos, Nelson had exceeded our expectations. He caught the most intimate, personal moments of our family and friends and captured the whole mood of our wedding day. Nelson and his second shooter seemed to catalog every moment without us ever even realizing they were there. He gave us beautiful, tasteful photos to remember the day.

I just cannot say enough good things about Nelson at Nylagray. I found him through a recommendation from a co-worker, and I haven't stopped thanking her ever since! From the moment we met Nelson, he was incredibly kind and easy to work with, surprisingly affordable, and paid close attention to every detail. He made sure to stay in close contact with us through the year of planning, which was so refreshing compared to the other vendors we used who just took payment and dropped off the face of the earth until the wedding day. He went out of his way to ask for a list of the "VIP wedding guests" that he should make sure to capture, and it really paid off in our final photos. By the time of the big day, Nelson felt more like a friend and guest than someone "working" our wedding. He has a very calming presence about him and made our photo session very peaceful and easy - never awkward. He managed to catch the most amazing shots that went far beyond the stiff, generic wedding photos I knew I didn't want. He also brought a second shooter along with him to capture both angles of our ceremony and different locations. After the wedding, he followed up immediately (we were still on our honeymoon!) with a preview of our photos. Soon after, we received the full set of images. Of all the vendors we used at our wedding, we'll always remember Nelson the most, and we'll have the amazing memories to cherish for a lifetime. BEST decision of the entire wedding, hands down. Here are some of our pictures: http://www.nylagray.com/blog/2011/05/allison-adam-wedding/
