​ABOUT  NINO IGNACIO Nino Ignacio Photography


Nino Ignacio is a wedding and portrait photographer based in New York and New Jersey. His  Style of Photography with a Fine Art flair is very evident in his distinct taste for color palette  but maintains the natural integrity of the image and genuine visual storytelling that portray the subjects not just how they look like but who they really are. With his creative eye, technical skill and artistic vision, he brings out the best of everyone by emphasizing their strength and  making them look and feel beautiful in front  of his camera. One of his ultimate goals in his photography is to provide an investment and a meaningful lasting legacy to his clients whether in the form of a single print, album or framed portrait that becomes an important centerpiece in their homes.



His Photography is an on-going journey, a continuous evolution and reinventions. He believes that in this art form the possibilities are limitless and opportunities are endless. When he bought his first DSLR camera , landscape photography was his fascination. After capturing a lightning at Washington Monument in DC and a silhouette of a plane in a Supermoon, that fascination became an obsession. He collaborated with amazing and talented people that opened up opportunities in fashion, commercial, lifestyle and portrait photography. His images has been published in Vigore Fashion Magazine, Focus of New York Magazine, Cynical Fashion Magazine, Reality Serum Magazine and Studio 14 Magazine. He had the opportunity to work for a National Ad Campaign for  Cigar Company and the images were featured in Cigar Snob Magazine. He was driven to learn and discover, he soon accepted projects for a Jewelry Designer and a Cosmetic company in New York City. Then completed a photoshoot project for the first full length Album of a New Jersey Rock Band and an Album cover for a New York based musician.

Wedding Photography was an eye opener for Nino, it made him realize that he found his niche and purpose by immortalizing the romance and relationship of two individuals and the joy of families coming together. He invested to train with the best wedding photographers in the world and have met and mentored by his hero and biggest inspiration in Wedding Photography, Jerry Ghionis. And these are his favorite inspirational quotes by Jerry Ghionis:


                 -    “ If you want to be a better photographer, be a better person”


                 -    “ If you photograph through the eyes of a loved one, you will only ever see beauty”


                 -    “ I don’t focus on being the best, I just focus on being better last week”


                 -    “ If you base your success on the success of others, then you will never be happy. All 

                 -       anyone can ask of you is to simply be the best you can be and surround yourself with positive

                         people, who love you for exactly who you are.”



You might find it interesting that Nino is a registered nurse since 1998. His ability to connect with  people is evidently effortless. He is originally from the Philippines, he moved to Dublin, Ireland in 2000  and lived there for almost 4 years. He worked for a brief time at Clontarf Castle Hotel and pursued his nursing career then worked in two Major Hospitals in Dublin. He met and married his wife “Zaiga”, who is originally from Latvia and they were blessed with a beautiful son named “ Vinny”. In 2004, together with his family they migrated and started a new life in New Jersey.


Nino is an avid collector of high-end toys, collectibles and superhero statues. Obviously, he primarily likes to watch superhero movies but he is also in to other genre. His favorite movie of all time is “ The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. On his free time, he loves to spend time with his family, singing in the karaoke or watching movie at the theatre.


And lastly, Nino is very pleased that you can join him in his amazing journey!



My wedding pictures were amazing. Nino does such unique work. The way he captures the light is like no other. After seeing our pictures, friends have booked Nino for their occasions because his work is so phenomenal. Nino is the only photographer i will use. He is very easy to work with and cares what he is shooting. He worked with me and took some ideas I wanted to a whole new level I didn't think was possible. Definatly one of a kind photography.

Nino did our engagement photos and will be doing our wedding June of this year! When my fiancé and I sat down with Nino at our first meeting (one of the many we had had with photographers) we knew he was the one! His photos literally told a story and both my fiancé and I felt totally connected to the people in the photos, who were complete strangers to us! Our engagement photos are truly breathtaking so I can only imagine what our wedding photos will look like! Ironically our weeding is a superhero theme so we know Nino is going to have a blast with this one! Lol Stay tuned....

Nino did my wedding and engagement photos on 4/17/15. He is such a professional and a perfectionist. He makes sure he can catch every angle and and many photos as possible. He utilizes every room, every light, and every position just to capture the perfect shot. He is creative and compassionate. Him and his team are punctual and open to what you want. He is fabulous. Our photo albums are breathtakingly beautiful. My wedding was better because he was there to capture our special day. Thank you!
