About your Dorset Wedding Photographer

Your Dorset wedding day is a unique event and possibly the largest, most expensive, single day event of your life. Its only reasonable to want the most experienced and creative photographer you can afford to join your wedding team.

As a photographer that is passionate about capturing emotion with over 15 years experience in wedding photography most of which are in the beautiful county that is Dorset. You can rest assured I understand your wedding and what it means to you.

Being increasingly in demand over the last few years I have now put a limit on the amount of weddings I book in a year so I can focus all the creativity and energy your big day deserves.

You will find my modern outlook refreshing. An unbiased photographer I love all wedding celebrations from Church services to civil ceremony, same sex marriages through to Pagan hand-fasting. For me each celebration is about the bond between two people, I love to document that raw emotion.

Seeing your story as it unfolds

One this I hear from all my clients after the wedding is ‘I can’t believe who fast it went’. Your wedding is a unique day, unique to you. I love to follow the story of the day, documenting it as it unfolds.

If it was possible to recreate a wedding with an exact replica several times and had different photographers document it the images would all be different, that is was make your photographer choice key. We all see life from different angles and you should pick the images that touch your heart not your wallet when looking for your photographer.

From the details to the grand moments I love to watch your day through my lens seeing moments that you would have missed. I have always been told I am a social chameleon, I have the ability to get down to the level and play along with a terrible two year old and get a 90 year old laughing just the same no matter what walk of life. I bring a calm, de-stressing, personality which enables me to get great, creative natural photographs.

Nathan is a one off… what ever random moment you want captured he will get it, it will be stunning and there will be no hassle! One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Nathan! Thank you!

WOW!!!! What can i say…. Our friends got married in 2014 & after we took a look at his work we instantly fell in love with it all. Not only is Nathan a professional and talented photographer he was an absolute pleasure to be around. He made us feel at ease and comfortable throughout the entire day ensuring that we and our guests enjoyed every moment of all our efforts we had worked so hard towards throughout the year.
Everything we had discussed and arranged prior to the wedding was evident in the photos and we couldn’t have asked for any more. He produced the most beautiful pictures, capturing very intimate and emotional moments of the day for all the family. He was fantastic with children and very creative. Having a large family, Nathan was patient and attentive to our needs and grasped every opportunity to make sure everyone was included and no one left out.
We couldn’t recommend Nathan highly enough and if you are reading this review you sure have chosen a wonderful photographer to capture such an important day.

Everyone from our whole wedding day had said how amazing you are. We just want to say a big massive THANKYOU smile emoticon

Nathan is not only a fantastic photographer, with real passion for the art form; he is also someone who cares for his customers and genuinely wants to learn and understand what the bride and groom want from their wedding. He is totally committed to recording the experience that represents both the theme of the day, as well as the personalities of the bride and groom. It felt he was a guest, rather than a service we had paid for. He is a ‘behind the scenes’ star that needs to be celebrated! Thank you so much Nathan – as we’ve mentioned on more than one occasion – YOU ROCK!!!

Nathan was absolutely brilliant on our wedding day – he made us feel relaxed in front of the camera and sorted everything and everyone with humour and professionalism. We couldn’t have asked for anything else and he has ensured that we have a wonderful record of our lovely day. His photos are absolutely beautiful and have captured all the important moments as well as the intimate moments without us realising. A true talent behind the lens!

Wedding Photography on the day

On your big day I will arrive at a set time agreed beforehand, usually with the bride as the preparations are happening. I watch the events happening and the light falling around you and wait, like a great fisherman, for the big story moments to happen. They inevitably do and my experience tells me where to be and when.

Throughout the day I move around your wedding as a guest watching your wedding from the inside out, the unguarded moments happen because your guests feel as if I am one of them.

I use my greatest skill to get the best out of you on the day, my personality. You will feel at ease in front of the camera and I’ll coax out your true personality.

Any formal groups and special requests will be undertaken with fun and with minimal interruption to the flow of your wedding day.

Remember the day in high quality

While I upload the images, when I get home from your wedding day you’ll see a sneaky peek of the day as I can rarely resist posting on of my favourite images on Facebook. If you are Facebook sharers I will within a couple of weeks provide a selection of images on my facebook page for you and your guests to share in keeping with the social revolution and keeping your wedding alive in everyone’s hearts.

Following this the full selection of images is carefully edited using professional software and my own unique creativity to enhance and bring out the best of your day (no they don’t come out of the camera finished). You will receive the high resolution images on USB, or via download for foreign couples, and you will be able to love them for years to come, remembering moments like they happened yesterday.

For the more discerning couple I provide beautiful fine art wedding albums which really make your photographs sing. Nothing beats a truly professional album, I’m happy to show examples of my work in print.
