We had the pleasure of working with both Nathaniel and Lisa. Nathaniel did our engagement photos and we absolutely loved them. Lisa captured our wedding and we can relive our day just by looking at photos she took. Several times I have cried looking at these photos remembering what a magical day it was. They also captured our maternity photos when we were pregnant with our first child. If you are looking for a great team and quality work for a reasonable price, West Photography is an excellent choice!Sent on 08/23/2016

Nathaniel photographed our July wedding in Chicago, IL. He took incredibly stunning pictures that captured the day perfectly. I contacted Nathaniel after finding some of his award winning work on a photojournalism site as I was looking for a very specific type of photography for our wedding. He met with my husband and I at a coffee shop a couple of times and responded timely to all my emails regarding logistics, suggestions, ideas,etc.Sent on 09/01/2014
The day of the wedding he was with us all day, starting with the "getting ready shots", and culminating with the reception. Our wedding party took three hours prior to the ceremony to take pictures all over downtown Chicago. Nathaniel and his wife were prepared, had a plan, and even managed to capture some terrifying moments into amazing photo opportunities (my veil flew away and almost fell into a lake, saved in the nick of time by the best man).
I thought that for the price, his service offering was great. We opted not to purchase an album as a way to save costs (additional $500), but the samples he showed us were fantastic.
I could not be happier with the quality of his photos, and would absolutely work with him again. I recommend this husband-wife duo to any couple looking for pictures with an edge and a photojournalistic style.
