The choice of photographer was one of the most important decisions when we were choosing wedding vendors. Every bride tends to say that the day flies by, so we wanted to make sure we would have photos that captured every moment. Nathan Desch was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer. His photos are creative and unique but also allow for a traditional touch as well. Nathan and his team made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire day. We would recommend Nathan Desch Photography to all brides who are searching for someone to document their day!
Our venue listed Nathan Desch as a preferred vendor but that is not why we went with him. From the very beginning of the vetting process, he was fast to respond, friendly to talk to and knowledgeable in his craft. Nathan was always available to reach on the phone when we had questions, prompt to respond to emails and consistently polite and professional.
In the months leading up to our wedding he prepared us for what to plan for and expect on our BIG day, and when that day came, we felt calm and comfortable with him and his wife. They made us, our families, our wedding party and our guests feel at ease with the posed photos and went unnoticed seamlessly for the candid ones.
Nathan has very unique photo ideas that he sets up with you as well as capturing the random memorable moments, flawlessly. Let's be honest, a huge part of your wedding day investment should be focused on your photographer. We were able to stay within budget and were beyond impressed with Nathan's work.
It's been our experience that yes, your wedding day will very much be the BEST.DAY.EVER. and if you want your photos to reflect that, book Nathan Desch Photography now!
If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding day, all you need to do is just take a 5 second tour of Nathan's portfolio on his website and your search is over. We had an absolute blast working with Nathan for both our engagement shoot and wedding day and the finished result he delivers to you is magic. He gives you photos jam-packed with stylish contrast and color and the most beautiful composition. Not only does he have a very creative and unique vision (because there are some photo ideas that really floored us!), he is the nicest person ever. So down to earth and really easy to work with. He made us feel relaxed and normal in front of the camera. We are a bit camera-shy and have always felt a bit awkward in front of the camera but Nathan just kind of lets you be you and he somehow manages to capture the most genuine moment.
One thing that stood out to me about Nathan's work was even though he shot many weddings at the same venue that we got married in, he is still able to make all of them truly remarkable and different so you are left with one of a kind memories. We are so happy that we were able to put our complete trust in Nathan with our wedding day. Thank you Nathan for the unbelievable photos and professionalism that far exceeds its value.
As we planned our wedding, one of the easiest decisions we were able to make was hiring Nathan to be our photographer. We found him through an internet search of photographers in our area, and he was without a doubt the best. We were sold the moment we went to his website and saw the work he had done on weddings. Nathan has a unique style that made our jaws drop. Not only is his work amazing, but he was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I both are not ones that enjoy our pictures being taken, but Nathan made us both feel so at ease that we actually forgot he was taking pictures of us at times. He captured all the moments we cherish as a couple and has allowed us to continue reliving those moments through his work. He is without a doubt the best, and we look forward to hiring him again in the future.
I hope everyone has as good of an experience as I did with their photographer, and you CAN by using Nathan Desch Photography! My husband and I had both our engagement and wedding photos taken by them. The photos were spectacular in both quality and variety. During the day of the wedding, Nathan and Christelle were very professional and organized; I was impressed with their efficiency and willing to do anything to get the best shots. They were open to all the photos I specifically wanted as well as being very creative with all their own ideas. They worked the entire day with amazing attitudes and energy to pour into both me and my husband. It wouldn't have been the same without having them there to shoot our wedding!
Nathan and his wife flew from PA to Washington state to shoot our wedding. Things went effortlessly. They knew exactly what they were doing and made our big day huge success. Then we anxiously waited for our wedding photos. Once we got them we were even more happy with their services! We love these photographers and would recommend them to anyone.
Nathan is an amazing photographer. He was really fun and easy to work with. He was extremely patient with all of my questions and concerns throughout the wedding planning process. His unique style brought our wedding photos to life. We are so happy with his work!
I was initially drawn to Nathan's photography because of his artistry, composition, and use of light and color. At our first meeting, he immediately put us at ease with his friendly and personable manner. He is confident and competent in his work, communicated openly throughout the process, and always answered my questions quickly.
I really didn't feel the need to review a lot with him in advance of our wedding day. I already knew I loved his style, and trusted him fully to create beautiful photographs. Nathan instills the kind of trust that just allows the bride and groom to enjoy the day. He exceeded our expectations. We couldn't be happier with our photos. I highly recommend his services.
I came across Nathan on the knot and instantly fell in love with the pictures. The style of photography is exactly what my (now) husband and I were looking for. We met up with Nathan and knew right away that we had found our photographer.
We had our engagement session and I was pretty nervous, because I've never had professional pictures done before. I thought it would be awkward - and of course at first it was. But that lasted all of 2 minutes. Nathan made us feel so comfortable even while he was shooting photos of my fiancée and I kissing right in the middle of a very crowded Suburban Station! We then went to JFK Plaza and to the Art Museum/Waterworks - he made sure we had all the pictures we wanted and had so many great ideas. By the end of our engagement session we were pros - we felt so comfortable that instead of a photo shoot we felt like we had just spent the day hanging out with a friend that just happened to be taking pictures. We had the e-session on a Monday, that Wednesday we had 2 "sneak peeks" and Thursday afternoon Nathan emailed us to let us know all of our pictures were available online. Seriously. 3 days.
We had our wedding on Friday May 2 at the Adventure Aquarium. This sounds cheesy, but I was so excited for the pictures of the wedding I hadn't even had yet! Nathan and Chris met up with my bridesmaids and I that morning at the salon. Just like our first experience with Nathan, the whole day we felt so comfortable and had a great time. We had some "sneak peeks" while we were on our honeymoon and a little over two weeks later we had all of our pictures. Nathan loves what he does and it shows with every picture he takes. Just look at his website!
The bad news: I love so many of the pictures that it's almost impossible to pick which ones I want to hang on my walls.
My advice to future brides: Contact Nathan ASAP because he's the best. When you're done that, buy/register for A LOT of picture frames. You are going to need them!!
We were pleased with Nathan Desch and his assistant, Chris, who shot our wedding.
Nathan is friendly, patient, creative, easy going, and professional. He is flexible and willing to do whatever suits you. He listened to what we wanted and what was important to us. He didn't chime in and give us his opinions; he just did what we asked. Anything we listed on his questionnaire, he made sure to capture so be thorough with your requests. He helped to remind us of different angles we wanted or photos we had listed. He also spent the time to do some more creative, innovative shots, which turned out great.
We chose Nathan also because he doesn't have a time limit on his packages. He comes when you want and stays as long as you want. This made it easier for us to prepare and took the weight off of being worried if he'd miss out on some of the day. Also, Nathan is super accessible by email. He was very responsive to all our emails and willing to meet upon request. He offers a free engagement session, which helped us get to know each other and learn his style and what kind of shots we liked and didn't like.
Nathan has more of a natural, candid style so although I wished he gave more direction, that's not his style. He lets you be you and doesn't try to force anything. Our photos came out great. It documented our big day and that's all we can ask for.
Tip: If you don't like Nathan's poses, use your own. Speak up and ask to do your own poses. Nathan was more than happy to accommodate us. And if you need more direction, do some research on Pinterest and incorporate them.
Tip: We regret not getting more group photos. We should've made sure to get all girl photos, all guy photos, and photos with all the flowers.
I could not say enough good things about my experience with Nathan and his team. From the beginning, Nathan was extremely responsive, easy to get ahold of, and upfront about all of his pricing. My husband and I fell in love with his photos online, they really stood out compared to so many other websites we looked at. I also loved how he excels with nighttime photos - this was so helpful to us because we didn't want to see each other before the wedding and had limited day-time photo opportunities. On the day of the wedding Nathan was prompt, professional, fun, and very relaxing to be around. My husband really dislikes having his photo taken, and it was a breeze I think in part because Nathan is very non-obtrusive, and his personality is so easy-going. Most importantly, the pictures we took turned out amazing. Nathan made sure to capture every detail of the wedding that I requested, we did photos of the bridesmaids/myself before the wedding, captured all the ceremony, family photos, wedding party photos, reception, and tons of dancing photos. He also stayed later to do some final night shots of myself and the groom which were the fun "sparkler" photos. He really tries to accommodate your schedule and desires for the entire day. I truly felt like Nathan was working for us that day, and yet his expertise was visible and he knew when to take command of a situation to ensure we got the best quality photos. I am so glad that we found him and were able to book him- if you are reading this, you should contact him ASAP!!
Nathan and Christelle did my wedding photos and they all came out amazing. I would seriously recommend them for any sort of special event. They were also really accommodating, they went above and beyond to fit our wedding into their schedule when we could only give them two weeks notice (it was a military wedding)! They really care about their clients and we were so blessed to have had them capture our day! Amazing photographers as well as amazing people!
After looking at various photographs from weddings at our chosen venue, Nathan’s work was by far our favorite. From our first contact with him, Nathan’s enthusiasm and responsiveness assured us that he was the photographer for us. He was flexible in creating a package that worked the best for our wedding day and budget. We had engagement pictures done, and this helped us to be more comfortable with posing. His creativity simply cannot be matched by any other photographers that we came across in the area. He takes awesome nighttime pictures! Christelle assisted him on our wedding day, and the photographs that both she and Nathan captured couldn’t be better. They took such a high volume of photos that we were not disappointed about not having a videographer. Everything was documented. Multiple family members and friends commented both on their professionalism and kindness on the wedding day, and certainly on the final product of their work. We highly recommend them! You won’t be disappointed.
Nathan did our engagement and wedding pictures. I was extremely happy with how both turned out. I love so many of our wedding pictures i have no idea how we are going to pick out just a few to print. They took a ton of pictures during our reception with the fisheye lens that I love because I can see the entire party. They even took pictures of my shoes and accessories that I had no idea they took until I saw the proofs. Nathan was very professional and made us feel very comfortable.
Nathan Desch Photography was great to work with! We enjoyed our engagement photo shoot and were impressed how quickly and efficiently he was able to get through our posed wedding shots and how incredible they turned out. He is very professional and flexible to work with. He is definitely the photographer you would want to have at your wedding. He is very personable and works great with the flower girls and ring bearers to help make things quick and fun for them. Nathan was always prompt to respond and extremely efficient in getting our pictures back to us. We are so incredibly pleased and excited with how our pictures turned out! They look gorgeous!!!
Nathan and his wife, Christelle, were our wedding photographers (and Nathan did our engagement photos) and the quality of everything was just outstanding! From our first phone call with Nathan, through the engagement pictures, planning for the wedding, and the wedding itself, we have nothing but rave reviews for Nathan Desch Photography. These are the memories we are going to have for the rest of our lives and Nathan is worth every last penny we paid him and we would book him all over again. He has got incredible vision and imagination. We didn't want a photographer who takes the same shots, same poses, for every single event. Nathan's images are fun, creative, and the final photos are full of color and life (definitely not boring!). He also has great ideas for night shots using sparklers, spotlights, and any other lighting accent you could think of! We loved having him take care of our wedding and we couldn't be more excited with our engagement and wedding photos. If you book any other photographer you are wasting your time and money.
