Photography as unique as your wedding
Congratulations on your engagement, I’m assuming that you are in here after the big question was asked and now you’re lost in a world of wedding industry websites. It’s bewildering, isn’t it?
Your wedding is your perfect plan for a perfect day, your wedding suppliers, not only your photographer need to ‘get you’. Understanding what makes you tick and what you love to do. On your wedding day, you need the confidence to step back and let us do our job without interfering, that comes with trust and experience. Having been a full-time wedding photographer for 25 years and photographed over 500 weddings you can count on the fact I know my craft. This means you can relax on your wedding day in the knowledge your dreams are being captured, even the moments you miss.
“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 photos and was able to make us laugh and relax”
Adam and Elizabeth
Have I been to a wedding with you? Find your photos here
Quite a few people end up at my website after reading testimonials and reviews in places like The Wedding Industry Awards, BrideBook, Trustpilot and Google not forgetting the social networks. 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.
I’m Nathan, the face and creative spirit behind Libra Photographic, where every image is a chapter of your love story. The approach for your wedding photography is simple, narrate your big day through photographs, 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, your friends and family throughout the 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.
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 climbed to 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. In 2023 this led me to being listed in the top 50 photographers in the world. I’m happy with that! 2024’s challenge to get past the top 25.
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 can travel for my job, seeing new places and exploring new wedding venues is a perk of the job and it keeps me creative, that’s how awards are won.
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.
