Nate Smith is all we could have asked for in our wedding photographer. First and foremost, the photographs are stunning and captured so many wonderful perspectives and small details from our wedding day. We both and our wedding party all felt like we’ve never looked better or happier in photographs.
He was very professional and easy to work with throughout the process and was able to incorporate all of our preferences into his wedding-day photography plan.
Nate is also very fun to work with! On the day of, with so many people and logistics, Nate was a calming, entertaining presence and helped make the day as a whole go smoothly. I couldn’t recommended a photographer more highly.

We worked with Nate for our engagement shoot back in April! He did a fantastic job from beginning to end. He is very responsive, friendly, and professional - we enjoyed all of our interactions with him. He took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple so that he could really capture our unique relationship and personalities.
In our initial conversation, he found out that we were an adventurous couple who loves hiking. When we were discussing locations for the shoot, he proposed checking out Abiqua Falls, which would require a short, but strenuous hike to get to. We were up for it and Nate was there for us every step of the way - getting a 4WD car to take us closer, knowing the route to the falls, and even providing water and snacks post-shoot!
The photos are absolutely stunning! The shoot was even featured on a local Portland wedding blog, which was very exciting and flattering. Nate has a talent for both portrait and landscape photography and was able to capture us and the waterfall together. He also caught several candid and quiet moments that ended up being some of our favorites from the day.
I would absolutely recommend Nate for any of your photography needs! He is so passionate about his work; he truly loves helping people look and feel their best, especially on their special day.
Thanks, Nate, for an adventure we’ll never forget and for the pictures to prove it!

We hired Nate Smith as our wedding photographer and it was the best decision we made for our wedding! Can't even begin to describe how wonderful he was to work with. From the moment we reached out to him, his communication was great. He responded to all of our questions within 24 hours or sooner. He even helped us plan out our wedding day schedule. Nate captured every special moment and he did a wonderful job putting our wedding album together. My husband and I are definitely camera shy but Nate helped us feel comfortable being in front of a camera. We had so much fun working with him on our wedding day! I highly recommend Nate Smith as your wedding photographer if you're looking for someone who is confident, love their job, you can trust, and will guarantee to do an exceptional job!
