Hello! I’m Nathan and I shoot beautiful weddings for fun-loving couples throughout the East Midlands. My relaxed photography style that’s perfect if you’re planning a laidback and fun wedding! Having a brilliantly fun wedding day that celebrates your love for each other with everyone that matters most is what it’s all about! You’re famously not into posing and the thought of chair covers with bows on makes you die inside… You want to have the best party of all time and at the end of it have wedding photos that look natural, real, informal and bring back all your fun memories. So the last thing you need is a wedding photographer that will turn your day into an extended photoshoot. That’s why the best wedding photographers love unposed moments so you feel relaxed, have fun and forget the camera is even there! If you’re looking for a friendly, down to earth and fun wedding photographer in Nottingham who’ll treat you like a friend, I would love to hear all about your wedding!

Our wedding photos are really fun and special!
“We had such a great time with Nathan- he made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole experience. Right the way through he was helpful, professional and all with a big smile on his face! Our wedding and engagement photos are really fun and special. Nathan went above and beyond for us a number of times but particularly by attending our wedding rehearsal at the church the day before, which really showed his commitment to getting the perfect shots on the day"

Captured the happiness of us perfectly!
Nathan is one of a kind. He was such a professional in his work but also so extremely approachable and down to earth which just made us feel so at ease and connected with him. We could not recommend him enough to anyone wanting relaxed, non staged photos. He truly captured the happiness of us and all our guests and has given us a lifetime of memories captured perfectly!

The perfect photographer on our wedding day!
Nathan was a perfect photographer on our wedding day. He took the time to invite us to a pre shoot to get to know us and our style. We went over different poses and styles to put us at ease in preparation for the day. He was prompt and offered lots of ideas and even went to the venue before the day to seek out the best places to take the main pictures. On the day itself we hardly noticed him nipping about which was perfect for us and our guests. We love our natural pictures.

Amazing shots, makes us smile!
Nathan thank you SO MUCH for our wedding photos. We had such a brilliant day, but looking back on your amazing shots have put an even bigger smile on our faces. We love how you managed to capture such a range of emotion throughout the day; from the anticipation and excitement of getting ready to the heartfelt sincerity of the speeches raucous banter and some very ropey dance moves. It takes a special eye to not only pinpoint these moments but also to melt into the background and not interrupt or feel intrusive on these special, ‘organic’ moments and Nathan does this with aplomb. We are so grateful to you for all your tireless effort in the run-up to, during and after our wedding and we’re delighted with the fruits of your labor. You were an absolute joy to work with and extremely professional from start to finish. We’re excited to get some of your shots up on the wall very soon! Love Hannah and Pete (Edwards)

A beautiful record of a day we'll remember forever
Our wedding photographs are so full of love, happiness and laughter- which sums the whole day up perfectly. Nathan - thank you so much for carrying out your work so skilfully and diligently and providing us with a beautiful record of a day we will remember forever. From our first enquiry, contact with Nathan was easy and productive - we knew quickly he could provide us with what we were looking for from his stunning portfolio, and he was so accommodating to our ideas and open to suggestions; he has truly been a joy to work with. Something that made him stand out was the ground work he put. He familiarised himself with our wedding venue and had great ideas for photo locations which really took the stress out of the day. In addition, he is such a lovely, relaxed guy - we felt very at ease with him during all the photos and the photos are testament to that.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Seeing the Groom getting pelted with bean bags as he lost the space hopper race to his Wife’s team comes to mind! It was also the wedding where the Bride made her own flower bouquets and centre pieces out of felts. I love a bit of DIY at weddings and I’m especially fond of weddings that break from tradition in a way that lets the Bride and Groom’s personalities shine through. Also, at this wedding nothing went to plan but everyone had an amazing time. The ceremony was scheduled to take place outside but due to rain, it took place under a marquee. But it didn’t matter one bit because there was SO much love and happiness in the room!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun-loving, relaxed, natural, beautiful, cheese-free

What about your business are you most proud of?

Having a business that offers services that will delight couples for years to come! There’s nothing like getting a handwritten thank you card from an ecstatic bride with one of your photos on it!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Create some space in your wedding schedule for some downtime. The day goes by so fast and its good to grab a little bit of air. This is also a great time to capture some intimate and relaxed couples portraits.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

1) I’ll always meet with my couples before booking. Booking your wedding photographer is very personal thing- its not just about the photos. I will be a guest at your wedding so its important that we feel comfortable with each other by getting to know each other a little. 2)To book me, I require a small deposit so I can lock your date in my diary so that I can start turning away work because I will be working on your wedding only. 3) I’ll then activate your client portal to help you keep on top of ‘wedmin’ and in the lead-up to your wedding I’ve send you lots of helpful tips to help you plan and get the most out of your photography so you can enjoy the day to the max. 4) One month before your wedding, well meet to run-through the final details of your wedding plans (timings, locations, group shot lists etc) to help everything run smoothly for you. 5) Wedding day!! 6) I will curate a selection of photos that best tells the story of your day and edit them to make each photo awesome (by making a few tweaks to the look). I will have your final wedding photos ready for viewing and sharing via your private online gallery 3 weeks after your wedding.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

A group photo of you with your parents. I know its not the most exciting photo in the world but its one of the most important and its preciousness will increase rapidly over the years.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Bring an umbrella and some wellies there are so many great shots to be had in the rain – embrace it! Then again if its torrential, I always have a plan B. When I scout your venue I will note locations around the venue that have shelter so that we can grab some downtime for couples portraits without getting drenched!

Describe how you got into photography.

It all started just before my daughter was born. I wanted to document family life in a way that was not disposable like the masses of selfies or general camera phone awfulness that spam up social media feeds... I wanted to create photos that had more creative thought behind them, photos that I would actually pay money to print and put up around the house or send as gifts to my family. A couple of years later my sister in-law invited me to shoot her wedding on a beach in Cornwall! Talk about a tough first gig- there’s no climb-down if I messed it up big time. But I was so thrilled to be asked because I’d been dreaming about shooting a wedding because in my mind it paired a truly joyous occasion with the need to have beautiful story-telling photography. I LOVED it. More importantly they love the photos and couples today love their photos and as a result, I’m still booking weddings from my first wedding.
