My day is always happy when I wake to go and shoot a wedding but nothing completes it like when I get a rave review. One of this years brides left me a review on Facebook this week which cheered me up no end. It reads as follows.
Review from Dorset Bride and Groom | Alex and Jon
What a guy! Nathan had a big challenge when we booked him up for our wedding. The bride being hyper and not really wanting to stay still for very long and a groom who would rather be anywhere than in front of the lens, didn’t give him an easy start. That would have been hard enough but just for the fun of it the weather on the big day decided to not go to plan, the sky darkened as the clouds rolled in and as the clouds do best, it rained. Not an easy gig for anyone and yet without fail Nathan was spot on, getting lots of fun shots and some serious ones where we stayed still and remembered to smile! Nathan had us laughing, feel relaxed and made the whole experience fun while capturing the day for us. But wait theirs more, Nathan used the rain (the rain which I really didn’t want on our wedding day) to his advantage, he took some shots where he silhouetted us and allow the flash to bounce off the rain like tiny gems falling all around us like confetti. I mean wow! I am now so soooo glad it rained as that is my favourite picture of the day.But the icing in the cake was getting some photos of our nephew, a three year old who out did me with not wanting to stay still. Nathan knew exactly what to do to keep him focused and smiling, in fact he made us all smile and created some wonderful family photos.
The cherry on top happened later when I some how managed to delete some of our wedding photos off our digital album. I still don’t know how, but seconds after emailing Nathan, the solution to get them back was in motion. Before the day was done I had all our wedding photos back. Amazing, even after the wedding Nathan would go out if his way to help us, I’m sure he had many other wedding photos to edit, but there he was helping me out without a delay.
If you’re wanting someone who can cope with madness (we walked out to one of their hits!) and is up for anything (we did climb trees!) Nathan is the man for the job, nothing was too much or too hard for him. I stand by what I said… What a guy!
