“Roy is incredible, hands down. He photographed our engagement and wedding on O’ahu and delivered absolutely stunning images – I have received countless compliments from friends and family about his captures of our love story and we are so, so grateful to have these images for the rest of our lives. He is calm in the midst of chaos, flexible when changes are made, gives helpful direction and encouragement, and he always does whatever it takes to get the shot. From the time I met Roy in the wedding industry about four years ago, I’ve had the privilege of watching his work improve and become more intensely beautiful over time. As a photographer myself, it is a huge thing for me to be able to trust someone to capture my vision, and Roy did that. Thank you Roy, you are the greatest!” – Natalie & Conor (Waimanalo, Hawaii)


      “Roy is simply amazing. At first we didn’t really know what we were doing but he graciously guided us through the whole photography planning process. All our questions were answered honestly and without making us feel silly for asking. On the day of the wedding we had so much fun during the bridal party and couples pictures and everything felt so natural! Our family is very large but Roy was patient and kindly guided everyone on where to stand. When we received the photos we were shocked at how much more beautiful they were than we could have ever imagined! Roy’s natural talent, experience, and professionalism made the entire experience a wonderful one and now we are blessed with incredible masterpieces!” – Jeniris & Jorge (Portland, Oregon)


      “His photography is a MASTERPIECE OF ART that you can look at every day on your wall! I 100% recommend Roy! We LOVE LOVE LOVE how the photos turned out. He was on time and very patient even though our wedding and pre-wedding day shoot was very tight schedule. RAIN OR SHINE He’ll work his magic to deliver the most beautiful and romantic photos. I personally love the rain photo that looks like it’s from a movie scene. His nature of calm and fun personality made us comfortable during the session. His service and photos are beyond expectation that being said It was the best money we spent on our wedding. I have received so many compliments from my friends & family. We will definitely schedule a session with him in the future again for another occasion!” – Midori & Chris (Kualoa Ranch, Hawaii)

      “I’ve always loved Roy’s work. I told myself if I ever get married I would want him to be my photographer. Then it happened. He was the first vendor I contacted after getting engaged. Pre-wedding communication and payments were so easy. Then the wedding day – my husband and I really enjoyed working with him. He’s so sweet and made it fun for us even though it rained the entire time! Now we have our finished photos and I absolutely love them! It’s artsy/classy which perfectly represents how I felt that day captured in a photo. Even the rainy photos look better than if it were a sunny day. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!” – Michelle & Darren (Sunset Ranch, Hawaii)

      “Best vendor decision everrrrr!!! My only regret is not writing this review earlier (sorry Roy). ☹ We got married on O’ahu, but did all of our planning from Australia. We loved Roy’s style and creative eye after stalking his images online, and were drawn to him because his images tell a story and are artistic – not just the traditional wedding pics. At first, I was really nervous at the idea of FaceTime interviewing our potential photographers, but boy did Roy take away all those nerves within the first 30 seconds. Right from the start he was so kind, genuine and immediately made me feel at ease. When we finally met in person on our wedding day I felt an instant connection and calm around him and his assistant. They made us laugh, made us feel beautiful and captured the moments of our big day perfectly. Then, Roy knocked it out of the park when we did our “post-wedding session” a couple weeks later in Nu’uanu Valley. He was just as excited as we were to stomp through the mud & pouring rain to get unique shots in an entirely different setting. When the final photos came back, my husband and I were blown away! He captured our personalities and our guests and the entire story so well. As a bonus, Roy was a DREAM to work with when it came to communication. We had a challenging time with a lot of our vendors on this, but not him. He was always punctual with email responses and his contract/invoicing/digital download was seamless. His efficiency in this area was top notch and sooooo appreciated! We are forever grateful that we trusted Roy and chose him as our photographer. His talent has helped us freeze time, allowing us to feel the intense emotions of our wedding day for eternity. We cannot thank you enough, Roy! Mahalo!” – Kayla & Jeff (Loulu Palms, Hawaii)

      “Roy is the absolutely THE BEST! My husband and I had our destination wedding in Hawaii a month ago, and we were so blessed that we had Roy as our wedding photographer. Planning a wedding always is not an easy work, especially for a destination wedding, but we are so happy that Roy’s fabulous works made everything worth it! I found Roy on Knot, the moment I opened his portfolio, I decided to choose Roy as my wedding photographer. He is such a talented artist and all of his photos speak for themselves. We met Roy before our wedding day to have the engagement session. He is really easy-going(both my husband and Roy love cars, sneakers and they had the topic always. lol) and fun to work with, PLUS, he is definitely super professional. (We told him we are like Chandler Bing from Friends when we take photos, but Roy made it so easy for us to feel so comfortable to pose, laugh and enjoy in the engagement session). For the wedding day, Roy and his friend were there taking all the detail photos and helping us catch all the moments of our big day. And all the photos I had received from Roy are perfect! I am thinking to have Roy do another couple session on our anniversary and I will definitely recommend Roy to my friends as their couple session, engagement and wedding photographer! Choose Roy, you won’t be regrets! :D” – Di & Xujie (Kualoa Ranch, Hawaii)

      “Roy isn’t just a talented individual but a genuine and sincere person. He goes above and beyond what’s expected. He has an eye and intuition to capture just the right moments. My wife and I are forever grateful for his work and service. While our most special day zipped by, we’re able to look back anytime and cherish the photos captured so perfectly. Big Mahalo’s and love to you brother!” – Makana & Isamu (Pupukea, Hawaii)

      “Roy is amazing. He went above and beyond to listen to our story, what our vision was and he helped make it come to life. At the last minute the weather was not playing nice and Roy was quick to provide alternative locations that were just as good if not better. Not being used to being photographed were were a little nervous, but Roy’s easy going personality made it easy and a pleasure to be in front of the camera. Most importantly the end results are spectacular and are often admired by our friends as family and some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen. His photos are rich, full of life, and never come off as staged. If you are having a wedding in Hawaii, or anywhere for that matter, you need to book this man.” – Lish & Daniel (Haleakala, Hawaii)


      “I’m going to put it simply: HIRE ROY.

      Having a fantastic photographer was one of the most important things to my husband and I, so we began our photography research very early on in the planning stages. We were looking for a photographer with an eye for detail, a creative and unique flare, and ultimately, someone who could capture the essence of our special day. We got all of those things and more with Roy. We were blessed to work with Roy for our engagement, and wedding photos and we still get compliments on how amazing our photos turned out. We were also blessed with a lot of rain on our wedding day, which would have worried me IF we didn’t have such a seasoned, and talented photographer on our team. The images that Roy took were breathtaking and truly froze perfect moments in time. I can’t rave enough about Roy– his portfolio speaks for itself. However, if you need more convincing, please know that not only will you receive amazing and one of a kind wedding photos, you will also have the pleasure of working with someone who is highly professional, gives great direction, and goes above and beyond to ensure that when you look back at your wedding, you remember the fondest and most wonderful memories. We hit the jackpot when we found Roy Nuesca, and I will forever be thankful!” – Matalasi & Kuinise (Sunset Ranch, Hawaii)

      Roy. Oh, Roy… ROY IS AN OUTSTANDING PHOTOGRAPHER!! We have dealt with many photographers in the past for various photoshoots, and Roy just knows how to not only work the camera, but the different positions couples should be, his art direction, location preferences, EVERYTHING. You can trust him! Many photographers would ask us, as a couple, what we want to do next…and it just gets awkward. Roy didn’t do that. He just knew what to do and instructed us in the kindest manner because he is awesome and such a sweet guy!! You will be with your photographer for a very good amount of time for your wedding/engagement shoot, etc…trust me, you want to be with Roy to make you feel comfortable on your big day! – Tiffanie & Brett (Kualoa Ranch, Hawaii)


      “If you want a photographer that cares about what kind of photos you have and isn’t your typical cheesy ‘wedding photographer’ choose Roy Nuesca Photography! We connected with Roy through email from Australia, he went over everything we wanted to know about and more. When we arrived in Hawaii Roy met with us and we were blown away with his sincere kindness and professionalism. Roy stayed with us from the ceremony right through the reception and made sure he captured every moment we wanted and more. He understood us like we were old friends and made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. The finished result is more than we’d ever imagined! He gave us sneak peaks, a blog, a sideshow video our prints and a gorgeous USB with all our images. The photos Roy took are stunning in every way and we wouldn’t recommend looking anywhere else!” – Rihanna & John (Waikiki, Hawaii)
