Hi there, I'm Nathan: an Australian-native, So-Cal living wedding photographer who loves telling couples' love stories through photographs.
Put simply, I don't just want to take your photos, I want to get to know you. And just like any successful relationship, making sure we have a great rapport and you feel comfortable is my number one goal. You can ask me questions about Australia and I'll ask you to explain how American football works. Or you can make fun of my accent and I'll make fun of yours. You see, my only job is to capture images in which you are your most natural, relaxed self and that you'll want to keep for a lifetime. By the end of your event we'll laugh and hug and probably get immediate nostalgia looking at the camera's LCD together. But in addition to all the good times, I hope to have formed a friendship that will last as long as the memories we create on your day.
Everything starts with hello. I can't wait to meet you and get to know your story.
Let's start something great.

I would recommend Nathan as a wonderful photographer!
Nathan is a wonderful photographer. We were referred to him by a work colleague. We used him as our photographer in the Fall of 2020. These are just a few of the many reasons we would recommend him.Sent on 12/28/2020
1. The process matters, but so do the results. Nathan’s pictures look great! Good lighting, interesting framing, good mix of tight shots and shots with background. Strong awareness of color, but also loved the black and whites. And he was receptive to the specific shots we wanted.
2. Nathan has a great “bedside manner.” He works well with family members across generations, and makes everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Which helps makes for genuine smiles. Simple but important.
3. He is responsive. I am busy and do not like being made to wait. Nathan responds timely and substantively. And he follows up. Which is exactly what you should expect from a professional.
4. Nathan’s planning was good, but he was flexible. If your mother in law is running 40 minutes late, he adjusts. Good focus on the job at hand (pun intended) but manages the stress. The photo shoot should be fun. Happy people, better pictures. Nathan did a great job with that.
We would recommend Nathan to anyone looking for a fun, but professional process; you won’t regret it!

Our experience working with Nathan was amazing! He has such an amazing talent behind the camera. Nathan took photos of my daughter's bridal shower and wedding that will be forever in our minds as he caught the REAL couple and the authentic moments between them. You can feel the love from his photos! His approach is down to earth and friendly which helps when you are getting two families together for the first time. Nathan has the ability to get everyone on the same page and smiling, and he even got my elderly father to smile! Now that was a miracle!Sent on 12/09/2019
While researching photographers, many I looked at were ok but Nathan was the BEST in every category. Aside from the quality of his work, he collaborated with us on all things photography by explaining the processes, planning our timelines and scouting the venues for the best photo spots. His ability to know what to do when and why was remarkable. He was in contact with us every step of the way and promptly responded to emails, texts and phone calls. He even went above and beyond by sending care packages. His approach to customer service speaks for itself - it’s clear that Nathan truly cares about his clients and it shows!
Nathan has since become the person we will use to photograph all of our family events. We trust him explicitly to capture those genuine smiles. You will not regret hiring Nathan as he is all things wedding photography: experienced, smart, friendly, has vision of what YOU want and is flexible to do it your way. I can't say enough great things about Nathan. I’m just so happy he is our go-to guy from now on!
We loved having the opportunity to work with Nathan Jaffan at a wedding held here at The Casitas --his images are bright and beautiful but also creative and fun -- he has a great eye and captures many amazing moments throughout the wedding. We also love that our LA based wedding couples can easily meet with him down in their area, do engagement shots, and then have Nathan up here in San Luis Obispo and the central coast capturing your destination wedding. We love Nathan and look forward to his return to the Casitas. We encourage you to check out his images and website. He's super friendly and generous to work with, which is another wonderful reason to reach out to Nathan!
