Hi, I’m Nathan!
I'm a husband and a father of two. I've always had a passion for creative work. Over the years I've worked in design, animation, advertising and video production. I also once worked at a roller skating rink. I pretty much have a camera on me at all times, whether I’m photographing my kids, filming a wedding or capturing a run down motel on an old highway, I love making pictures! I also love donuts (see below).
I have always loved going to weddings, even before I started filming them, and I have a real passion for documenting the weddings for all the wonderful couples who invite me along to be a part of their day. I believe wedding films should be fun, energetic, and reflect the couple's personality and the mood and tone of the day. Most importantly they should be real, not epic features that look like a Hollywood drama with a cheesy soundtrack to boot. I focus my attention on producing candid, documentary-style wedding films that capture the mood and emotion of the day.
It's a real privilege for me to be able to document what will no doubt be one of the best days of a couple's life, and something I take great pride in. I put all my efforts into making every film the best it can possibly be, and something that you will want to watch over and over again.
I got married, and it was the best day of my life!
Yes, that’s me on my wedding day in 2009. No beard, shirt that’s clearly too big, and the widest tie in the world. My wife looks pretty great though huh?!
We had a typical reception centre wedding; chair sashes, ribbon on the cake. Definitely not the kind of day that’s going to be posted on a wedding blog, or hopefully not anywhere on the internet for that matter. But who cares? Lauren and I had the best day ever, we actually said that to each other when we got in the car at the end of the night. We had everyone there that we cared about, plenty of food and drink and a ripping dance floor. Nothing much else matters.
So as long as you do the same, you’ll have an amazing day too, just remember not to sweat the small stuff. It might seem important at the time, but in 10 years you won’t care about seeing your dress hanging in a tree, or how the place settings looked, you’ll just be looking back at all the smiles and moments that really meant something to you (even if you do now look like a total dork like me).
