Unforgettable Weddings, Uniquely Captured since 1999

Dorset Wedding Photographer - Nathan Eames

Hi, I’m Nathan, the face and creative spirit behind Libra Photographic, where every image is a chapter of your love story. My approach to wedding photography is simple: I narrate your big day through pictures, capturing every emotion and moment, from the quiet to the exuberant, in beautifully crafted images. It’s a blend of refined elegance and creative flair, all with a documentary twist. With over 20 years of perfecting my art, I’ve developed a primarily observational style, with just the right amount of creativity sprinkled in, creating honest, real, and truly epic portraits of you and your day.

Libra Photographic is for couples who deeply value their memories being captured in a way that’s unobtrusive, natural, and genuine—without the need for poses or direction.

Award Winning UK Wedding Photographer

Until very recently I have not entered awards as I believed, and still do, that I work for my customers and not my portfolio but I have bowed to the realisation that it inspires a bit of confidence in this world of virtual meetings. Not everyone can meet me in person, so let’s get some judges to do the work for you. When I first started as a wedding photographer I was a member of the Royal Photographic Society and I am now an Associate photographer. Since 2020 I have entered a few competitions and won peer awards with the Wedding Photojournalist Association, Wedding Photography Select, Masters of wedding photography.

Alongside these peer awards, I have received some business awards too, a regional finalist in the Wedding Industry Awards for two years running (2021&2022), the LuxLife Customer Service award for the ‘most client-focused wedding photographer of the year 2022″, top 10 wedding UK photography blogs on Feedspot since 2016, published on numerous wedding blogs and a spattering of magazine features. I have to admit I enjoy the recognition as a Photographer, the awards are lovely but they are meaningless without treating my customers like friends and giving the best service I can.

Have Camera, will travel

As a photographer serving the local area, I get to visit Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon frequently however, I travel across the UK and I’ve been known to shoot abroad too. The cost of travel is something that can affect the price of your wedding package but most of the time it is inclusive. I feel fortunate that I am able to travel for my job, seeing new places and exploring new wedding venues is definitely a perk of the job and it keeps me creative, that’s how awards are won.

It makes me so happy that my skill as a wedding photographer has created lasting memories for so many people over the years, not only for my couples but for their families for years to come.

We used Nathan as our wedding photographer this summer & we are so pleased we did. He was recommend to us, and I would recommend him to anyone. He was great fun, easy to work with, listened to what we wanted, & came up with some fantastic creative ideas. Great at getting even the most reluctant people to smile. If you are looking for a photographer... he is your man

Nathan was incredible from start to finish, we originally met him at a friends wedding and when planning knew exactly who we wanted to contact for our special day! He had such a great presence and made taking photos fun and relaxed. We were keen for some natural photos and he captured these perfectly. He was perfect with our flower girl and making her laugh too! He was also great at knowing lots of little hints and tips throughout the day and really helped with keeping everything organised which was a great help! We couldn’t recommend Nathan more! Getting our photos back made us relive a very special day and we can’t thank him enough!

Nathan was the photographer for my wedding, he is a great guy and easy to work with. He blends into the background when he's working as he was very popular with our guests. I met Nathan when he did the photo's for my friends wedding and he came across really well and when I saw there photo's I knew I wanted him to do ours as well. Obviously the day photos are amazing, but I really love the night photos when he captured people in very natural scenes, dancing, drinking and laughing. It's these photo's that really make the memories special as we can see all of our friends and family having such a lovely time and plenty of fun. In terms of money I'm sure you can get cheaper, but you can also get a lot more expensive. The old saying of "you get what you pay for" comes to mind and when you look at the quality of reviews he's got you can see he's a class act. We highly recommend Nathan.

Nathan is brilliant. We hired him after he did my sisters wedding back in 2021 and did an amazing job. He did a great job for our wedding in every way. The photographs provided were all amazing, and we and our guests loved having him around on the day. He was always in place to get the right shot. He also gave good directions on posing for a photos and was able to make us laugh and relax, which was useful for us as we don't usually pose for photos

Nathan was brilliant from start to finish. He understood exactly what we wanted from our pictures and delivered it. All of our guests have said he was so funny and personable. He felt like one of the guests. He took us for pictures just the two of us, when he could sense we needed a break from the crowd. But we didn’t feel like we were away from the guests for too long. We love the pictures so much, they are beautiful, we couldn’t have asked for better! Thank you so much Nathan!

Thank you so much for capturing our special day. Nathan helped to naturally guide us through the special moments whilst remaining personable, professional and discreet. He also integrated the natural surroundings with ease. We would not hesitate to recommend Nathan to anyone.

All are welcome here

There has been a lot of talk about inclusivity in recent times. This has never been in question here.

We are all working this shift on spaceship Earth travelling through the cosmos together. We all have the same struggles and joys experiencing life in this momentary blink of existence so let us come together and celebrate this shared experience, rather than focus on our differences.
