On WeddingWire since 2013

A wedding day is one of the best to be a part of because of the genuine joy each couple displays and the uninhibited fun the dance floor evokes. I truly enjoy capturing a couple's big day for those reasons, and try to fuze my photojournalism background with a contemporary, creative and casual style that truly depicts the feel of the event. Mixing elegant portraits of the bride and her bridesmaids with candid, natural images of the day is what makes photography a fun and unique challenge for me.

Amazing photographer!!!!!!

Nate is the absolute best!!! He was our photographer for our engagement pictures and wedding and we definitely will use him in the future for any photo needs! Not only is he beyond talented and creative, but he is also extremely easy-going, fun to work with, and he made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. His photos are absolutely stunning!!! He surprised us with sneak peeks the day after our wedding and turned around our final edited full set of photos about a month later and we are blown away by how incredible they all are! His attention to detail and artistic eye is so evident in every single photo!
We can’t thank Nate enough for the amazing memories he captured and we HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for an incredible photographer!

Professional, Flexible, Affordable, and Artistic

We hired Nate Heckenberger to capture our wedding earlier this year. I liked the artistic shots on his instagram and could tell he knew when to use depth, how to capture in a photojournalistic style, and where to find the unique shots that could make a wedding album. He did not dissapoint!

We couldn't be happier with the incredible photos he delivered from our wedding. It rained half the day and you wouldn't know it from the photos. He captured the best, fleeting moments - even if they were just seconds long. I don't know how Nate and his second shooter were always where the best shot was about to happen, but they were.

I can't recommend Nate enough. He could charge 50% more and still be a bargain!

Captured our day perfectly

Nate was one of the first vendors I hired for our wedding, originally scheduled for September 2020. I was really impressed by his portfolio which highlights his ability to capture great "action" shots - we wanted our wedding to feel like a big party, so this was important to us. From the get-go, Nate's professionalism and communication were on point. When COVID pushed our plans out by a year, he was flexible and accommodating in booking an alternate date. When the day finally arrived, Nate and his second photographer were prompt, professional, and easy to work with. We confided in him that we were planning to make a big announcement at our reception, and they captured the crowd reaction perfectly! Altogether they captured every moment of our day, from getting ready through the end of the night, and we couldn't be happier with the result. Nate has the essential ability of a wedding photographer to blend into the background so that guests don't even know they're being photographed in their most joyous, uninhibited moments. Can't say enough about the quality and quantity of the photos, as well as the professionalism. Don't hesitate to book Nate!
