Dorset wedding photographer - Libra Photographic - Nathan Eames

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, my name is Nathan and I am a wedding photographer based in Poole, Dorset. Telling a story in photographs has been a passion since being a young boy.

Why entrust me with your wedding photography

Photography for me is far more than my job, it’s a way of life. It didn’t take long after graduation from my photography degree for me to discover weddings, photographing a wedding is an honour and a position of trust. I love to see the emotion unfold during the day, experience helps me anticipate when and where moments happen but there are also moments between moments that take a keen eye to spot. Telling that story with documentary photography is my gift and I give it to you.

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.

Beautifully Emotive and Fun Dorset wedding photography

Style of photography

If asked what my style is I’d have to reply, that I am a watcher. I am always alert to the story around me, I wait for the story to happen in a perfectly lit scenario then creatively capture the moment for eternity. Not only this I will create imaginative portraits for you when the time is right. Wedding photography here is for those who really value their photography but don’t want to be directed too much and want to enjoy their wedding day.

Take your time to select your wedding photographer, what you are paying for isn’t so much physical product it’s the photographers’ eyes that view your wedding day and the interpretation of the story as it happens. If you connect with the photography in the portfolio or real wedding stories then get in touch to check your wedding date I’d love to talk about your wedding day.

As a professional wedding photographer, I believe in bringing more to an event than just a camera. As a Documentary wedding photographer, I might be taking pictures for just one day of your life but I am actually creating a lifetime of memories for you. I act as a wedding photographer and coordinator throughout the day and you should use this knowledge that I have obtained of weddings to your advantage.

Do photographers follow a wedding plan?

There are numerous benefits to planning ahead of time that will ease your wedding day if you take them into consideration from the beginning, the wedding plan is important but once the wedding day begins the work is done and mine begins. I will be by your side more than you realise, there to help.

Why Should Photography be your number one wedding priority?

If you take a moment to think about it, a wedding photographer will be there by your side from the moment you are having makeup applied, the moment you cut your cake, and until the people go sideways on the dancefloor. As the photographer, I will be right there by your side, having created a personal relationship with you both.

How can your photographer be a coordinator and manage to get his work done?

It is a well-known fact that practice makes perfect and I have participated in numerous beautiful weddings and have learned a trick or two to help you out.
As a documentary wedding photographer, I have to: Know, be attentive, anticipate and have a vision. All these skills were gathered over time and with a passion for the art of photography.

What happens if there is a wedding emergency?

In case of an emergency as an experienced photographer, I offer more than my camera skill set, I offer my advice and coordinate the couple accordingly to that specific situation so that they can move past and enjoy the rest of their event.

Will a photographer tell me where the best places for photos are?

If there is a moment at a wedding where the décor, the sky or the light outside aligns perfectly in some way only nature can offer, it is my duty as a photographer to have the vision and imagination to capture a perfect photo before it happens, and then make it happen. You will be overwhelmed on your big day to have time to notice your surrounding areas. As a documentary wedding photographer, I believe in your event. I understand how important it is to the couple that the day goes on perfectly. I take pride in my work and it brings me as an individual pure joy to see the moments that the couple lived on their wedding day captured exactly as they were.

How do photographers get candid moments?

Having been in this industry for a long time you begin to know the traditions and the way the event will go just by the people that are attending the wedding. This works to my advantage allowing me to capture the exact moments that count.

Why do I need a wedding album?

wedding photos might have great emotional value when you receive them but fast forward years and years from now and you will see the true value they represent only then. An album is a perfect way to relive the day.
