Get to knOw me, your wedding photographer & videographer

Hey, I'm Nick!

               s long as I could remember… I’ve pictured myself having a fast paced career with a slick briefcase peering out of a skyscraper while hearing my secretary say, “Mr. Gonzalez you have a call on line 1.” Flash forward 25 years and I work from home, my secretary is the love of my life, and my view is the world. About that briefcase… it’s a camera bag that weighs over 40 pounds.

Currently, I’m juggling 35+ weddings a year, married to my true love, raising a son and gushing over my new baby daughter. Rosie and I travel as much as we can but love enjoying our home and time with family.

What I love most about my job are the new people I meet and new places I get to visit. It’s so much more than clicking a button. I love connecting with the people that have me document their memories. I also take a moment to soak in the view and enjoy the scenery for my own memories. I truly cannot count the amount of memorable sunsets I’ve seen throughout my career. I love that my job has no bounds and I have freedom’s I never thought I would have.

Being a creative entrepreneur is a reality that I am so grateful to have and absolutely love what I do. God has truly blessed me beyond belief with a wonderful family and a strong drive for life.

Adventures Together

A huge part of my background is my Hispanic heritage from South America. My mom took us a few times as kids and I loved the travelling experience.  Recently, I have recently visited Peru, Colombia, and Hawaii three times with my son Jonah. Rosie's family is from Mexico and we frequently travel to Baja California. We love being immersed in different cultures and experiencing new things. There is no better feeling than standing with your packed bags, smelling jet fuel as you wait in line to board a plane. Travel is a huge part of my photography journey and allows me to share a different side of me.
My dream is to one day have a ministry that helps individuals in need by telling their story with photos and video to bring awareness. Check out my travels and adventures below, I look forward to hear about yours.

 Nick was a referral from my cousin who got married at a winery in Temecula, we were at the wedding and saw how professional his team was and loved his photos. We appreciated working with Nick because he is so talented and versatile! He came to Laguna Beach for our engagement shoot and then our wedding venue was in downtown San Diego, no matter where he shot the pictures always came out amazing!! The day of our wedding his photography & videography team were such a joy and so professional to work with, it was truly a pleasure to work with Nick and his team!! They captured every moment perfectly and we are so thankful we get to cherish this day forever because of them! Thank you!!

"We couldn’t have wished for a better photographer during this wedding process!"

Nick was amazing to work with and we were completely blown away by the photos! He captured exactly the vibe we wanted. Also huge props to him and his team for how professional they were on the day of and somehow completely unseen. I've been to weddings where photographers could be slightly distracting...but they have this down to a science!

"The photos were absolutely stunning! We were seriously blown away. So magical"

Andrea and Ryan

He was extremely flexible, and professional throughout the entire experience. He had a great balance of giving us direction in posing, while also giving us some freedom to take a few photos/poses we particularly wanted. Some of our groomsmen had no experience taking photos, and Nick was fantastic about telling them exactly what to do, in a relaxed and 'chill' environment. When I was getting ready in the morning, Nick and his second shooter took the initiative and got photos of my jewelry / shoes / Bible, etc. without me even knowing or asking - it was awesome!  The most talked about part of my wedding among my bridal party was how great my photographer was! Would definitely recommend!

"I have experienced some good wedding photographers being in other family member's weddings in the past, but I was BLOWN AWAY with Nick!"
