It was a no-brainer to work with Nathan for our wedding, after seeing his work. He has great examples of outdoor and nighttime photography on his blog and with our wedding being held in the evening and mostly outdoors, his style fit in perfectly with our vision of the day.
We chose to have two photographers for the full day, and Nathan and his wife were a wonderful pair to work with. They were prepared, professional and took the reigns, as we wanted. We let them be the experts, and had them direct us throughout the day. The output speaks for itself; it's not just photographs, each image is a piece of art. If you are looking for specific photos or poses, definitely provide them but I would recommend letting Nathan do his thing!
His use of lighting is magical and I can't even count how many people have commented on how great our photographer was. He made every moment beautiful and I can't say enough good things. I'm just so glad we have these images for the rest of our lives. Best vendor decision we made.
Having Nathan as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. Photography was incredibly important to us, and we had such a hard time trying to find the perfect photographer before we found Nathan. Some photographers are fine art photographers who can take wonderful portraits but aren't able to capture the many moments of your wedding as it unfolds. Some are photojournalists who can document every little moment, but their pictures lack the artistry and creativity to make them anything truly special. We didn't want to have to choose, and finding Nathan was like a miracle because with him, we didn't have to. Nathan has a gift and is able to look into his camera and take pictures in a way that makes ordinary things look extraordinary. We got back over 1000 jaw droppingly beautiful photographs that perfectly capture every moment, feeling, and emotion of our wedding day. I truly feel like Nathan went above and beyond with our wedding photos, and I could not be more ecstatic with how they turned out. Nathan is such a pro and was an absolute pleasure to work with - super friendly, easy going, and helpful, with great communication before, during, and after the wedding. He is so kind and even came back to the hotel to take a picture of us with our pet guinea pig, which meant the world to us. We were the first in our college group to get married, and we would not hesitate to recommend him to all our friends. Nathan is an awesome photographer, and you won't regret hiring him!!
Nathan photographed our wedding in June (and engagement shoot a few days before!) and we are so happy with the photos. He and Christelle were simply amazing! Having seen his portfolio, we loved Nathan's artistic take on photos and pretty much left all of the photo-decision-making up to him! Despite not having requested any specific pictures, we got everything we wanted. He and Christelle were very professional while at the same time relaxed and able to put everyone at ease.
I can't begin to describe how phenomenal Nathan's work is. He did our engagement photos and we loved them so much that we wouldn't book our wedding venue until we confirmed that Nathan was available that day to do our wedding! We just got our wedding photos back and they are truly stunning. It wasn't just a handful of shots that were incredible....it's hundreds! Nathan has such a unique eye when it comes to photography which sets him apart from everyone else. Not to mention he is SO easy to work with. He has such a calm demeanor, is very professional and flexible and his talent is out of this world. Book him!
Nathan did our wedding and engagement photos. He drove all the way to Gettysburg for the engagement photos. He is very professional but also makes things fun. Very creative. Would highly reccomend this photographer.
I grew up in a photography obsessed family - pictures at every holiday, birthday, dinner out - closets overflowing with albums and DVDs of pictures. So I always knew photography was going to be my top wedding vendor priority.
We found Nathan by accident, he shot an engagement shoot at a location we were considering, and his photography blew us away. The colors, composition, emotion conveyed in his pictures leaped off the screen to tell a story. My husband and I loved his style of candids and artistic poses. All of his couples seemed at ease and the pictures seemed so natural, not overly orchestrated in traditional stuffy wedding style.
Nathan was quickly responsive to our inquiry and we knew he was our photographer at our first meeting. He came so prepared compared to other photographers we met. Full album examples, pamphlets of tips, questionnaires etc. He was personable, honest, enthusiastic and passionate about his job. We are so incredibly happy we booked him.
Our engagement photo shoot was a blast - felt like wandering around town with a friend just chatting and getting amazing pictures! Our family and friends cannot stop commenting about how great all the pictures are! I only wish I had more wall space so I could hang every single one. :)
At our wedding Nathan and his second shooter/wife were fantastic! They wrangled everyone easily into pictures, made great suggestions for locations and setups, were game for any specific photo requests. It was such a pleasure to have them both there. We even did a few night shots - which we are anxiously awaiting! The sneak peeks on his camera's preview screen were absolutely astounding!
We are so lucky he was the one to capture our special day. We cannot wait to print up loads of prints and surround ourselves with his art in our home. There is magic in the shots he captures. I would recommend him to any couple - A++++ vendor! Thank you Nathan!
Nathan came highly recommended by our wedding venue. After pouring over the numerous options we had to review, we realized that there was no better option for us. Nathan makes you feel like you are his only client. He is very timely with his responses and always thoroughly answers any inquiries you may have. Furthermore, his shots are stunning. We had never seen anything like some of the pieces he has produced for us. There is a clichéd notion of weddings that the occasion should feel magical, like something out of a fairy tale. Obviously, with the amount of work and stress put into planning, that mentality feels somewhat far-fetched. However, with Nathan at your side, you will be able to look at your pictures and feel that you did achieve that picture-perfect, fairy tale wedding.
We came to hear of Nathan through our wedding coordinator at the venue we had chosen. Both of us had never heard of him, but we were very intrigued by the samples of his work the venue was able to provide. When we checked out his website later on, we knew we found the right one. I was particularly impressed by the time and effort put into the shot compositions. He was not simply interested in giving you a photographic account of your wedding; he wanted to create art. Additionally, he was a very personable individual and he knew how to make his subjects feels at ease. Since the wedding itself, we have spoken through email in regards to the purchasing of engagement photos, and he continues to be very reasonable and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.
Nate did a fantastic job of photographing our wedding. He did an excellent job of having us do what we needed to do in order to get photos done and get back tot he wedding. He was always there taking great candid shots. I have looked at his other photos to know that he knows how to take great photos, and I know that ours will be fantastic. I highly recommend him!
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!
