Full Description
Photography should be your number one priority when planning your big day. If you take a moment to think about it, a photographer will be there by your side from the moment you are getting dressed, to the moment you cut your cake, till the end of the event. As the photographer, I will be right there by your side creating a personal even intimate relationship with the couple. 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 planner is important but once the wedding day begins their work is done and mine begins. I will be by the couple’s side more then they realize. 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 vision. All these skills were gathered over time and with a passion for the art of photography. As a photographer, I know how you should pose when it comes to the photo shoot of the bride and the groom. Most people think striking a pose is artistic, this is until you see the end result and regret not taking my advice. When you are seeing the photos, the wedding has passed and there are no do-overs. I have a sense of the relationship between the bride and groom. Masked behind my camera I begin to notice the way they move around each other and it becomes clear to me how I need to capture their specific style. 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.

Natural talent (and lovely guy)
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! First came across him at a friend's wedding, and my girlfriend at the time (now wife) and I more or less decided there and then that he'd be our wedding photographer, and when we ran into him at a wedding fair shortly after our engagement it was a done deal.

He was always in place to get the right shot.
Nathan is brilliant. We hired him after he did my sister's 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 photos and was able to make us laugh and relax, which was useful for us as we don't usually pose for photos

he's a class act
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.

Our perfect day perfectly captured
MASSIVE shoutout to the best photographer ever, Nathan (libra photographic) captured our day just perfectly. We had a very ‘busy’ wedding with lots going on and he glided through it seamlessly, capturing both the big showstopper moments and the intimate raw moments too. From planned shots to totally natural ‘in the moment’ images - he got it all. He was totally on board with our ideas and best of all he blended in like a guest - couldn’t recommend him highly enough!
Response from the supplier
Aww you guys, thank you so much. Your wedding was epic.....and hot! I cannot say just how much I loved sharing time with you both. If my children turned out as kind, caring and generous as you both are I'd be so proud. Your photos reflected your personality perfectly.
