About

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.

Nathan

Incredibly talented photographer

I couldn’t have asked for a better or more talented photographer to take photos of our event. Nathan is an absolute gem and has been amazing to work with. He was able to take the most stunning shots of members of my family and I truly couldn’t be happier with his work. Nathan was recommended by friends and, after looking through his portfolio of work, I was immediately impressed by his eye and skill. From the natural poses to his use of light, his skill is obvious. But not only is Nathan an incredible photographer, he is also a truly kind person with a great sense of humor who is easy to work with, really listens to what you want and is super responsive and communicative. Trust me, you will not regret using Nathan. I love the photos he took of our event; we have never looked better.

Nathan is the absolute best!

Nathan is the absolute best! From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, Nathan’s incredible talent and professionalism made him an absolute delight to work with. We reached out to Nathan on recommendation from our wedding planner, and it was immediately clear from our first meeting that Nathan had the experience, skill, and kindheartedness to be a true asset to our wedding planning experience. Planning a wedding is never easy, but working with uplifting and talented people like Nathan helps the process immensely.

Working with Nathan is a breeze; he is always responsive and communicative, and he consistently goes above and beyond to help make our vision come to life. He handled all of the planning and creative aspects so we didn’t have to, which is such a relief when you are juggling a million other wedding planning-related tasks. We had expressed to Nathan beforehand that we were nervous about taking photos, but he made sure to make us feel at ease and confident by providing direction and guidance. And our pictures turned out better because of it.

The photos he took were beyond our expectations. We are just so happy with the way everything turned out. He clearly has a talent for photography. He was a hit with our wedding party, too, not only by being kind and lighthearted all day, but by being organised and efficient in gathering everyone together to get all of the shots that we wanted. When you hire a wedding photographer, you truly spend your entire wedding day with that person — Nathan is an absolute pleasure to have by your side on your most important day.

We are immensely grateful to Nathan for his exceptional work and cannot wait for an opportunity to hire him again. For anyone looking for a wedding photographer who goes above and beyond, we cannot recommend Nathan enough.

Look no further, Nathan’s your guy!!!

Nathan was listed as one of the preferred vendors at Surf and Sand. He initially caught me and my husband’s attention with his clean edits and varying points of views when we browsed his online portfolio.

It was a wrap after we spoke to Nathan on the phone. He really made me and my husband feel at ease. Before our big day, we were a little worried because we can be a little camera shy. All of those worries were put to rest when our big day started.

He exceeded all of our expectations. From the very moment he arrived to our venue to the very end, he gave it his all. His hard-work did not go unnoticed. He made sure all the photos we wanted were done. Our wedding coordinators, bridal party, and family LOVED him. He gave all of us clear direction on how to pose and was great with the kids.

And when it was time for Nathan to deliver the actual wedding photos, our guests were blown away and amazed by all the amazing moments he was able to capture on our special day. We HIGHLY recommend Nathan to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

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!
