My name is Nathan and I’m a documentary wedding photographer in Sheffield. My style is relaxed, fun and candid, with the emphasis on capturing all the beautiful moments as they happen. Sure, there will be some group shots, but there will also be some beautiful portraits of the two of you, and a few hundred photos of you and your loved ones having the best day ever.
My focus at a wedding is documenting the emotion of your day.
If you hadn’t already guessed, I’m Nathan (my friends call me Nate) and I am part of the new school of wedding photographers. I say ‘new school’ because I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. In fact, I never set out to be a wedding photographer at all, but that all changed when I got married.
My wedding day was the best day ever. I married my best friend, in front of 145 of our loved ones, and by the end of the day my face ached from smiling, and I was addicted to weddings. That feeling you get when you are surrounded by love is truly special, and it was then that I decided that I would spend the rest of my career capturing those feelings for other couples.
I specialise in documenting moments, it’s sometimes called ‘reportage’ or ‘documentary style’ and basically means that I set out to photograph a wedding exactly how it happened, so that when a couple look back at their photos for years to come, they get the same feelings they had on their wedding day. It’ll be exactly how they remember it.
I’ll also spend some time with my couples getting some beautiful portraits, and yes, I’ll even photograph you pretending to sign a register or grinning as you prepare to cut a cake. But the photos that excite me are the split second moments. The glances between a couple who are exchanging their vows, the tears a dad cries when he sees his daughter in her dress for the first time. That’s the magic, and that’s what I love!
Some kind words from my clients
Nathan, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing the most special day beautifully. Looking through the photos only a few days after our big day was amazing! You have captured the whole essence of us as a couple and our fabulously crazy family and friends, our culture clash reception and a whole lot of love, food and dancing! THANK YOU! Love the Swais-Hancocks
We are so pleased we met you Nathan at a friend’s wedding back in the UK. Thank you for capturing our perfect day with beautiful photos in sunny Spain. Would highly recommend!
Nate captured our special day so perfectly and professionally, we couldn’t recommend him more highly. He helped us and all of our guests to feel so at ease that we now have a collection of amazing photographs of our friends and family which bring back such good memories of the day. Thank you Nate!
