My name is Nate, and I am in love with life! I love to take photos, to capture time, moments...LOVE! I got started into photography while living in South Africa when I was given a very old film SLR by a friend. The camera had no automatic focus or settings, so I was forced to learn what happened when I played with shutter speeds and f/stops and film speed. I still remember developing my first role of film and being so disappointed to find all my shots out of focus and over or under exposed. A fascination turned into a passion, a passion that often draws close to the line of obsession, and I became in love with taking photographs, stopping time, and capturing bits and pieces of the people I meet and the places I go.
I consider myself very blessed to be able to do what I love, and hopefully to be able to bless others with the passion that I have for photography. I owe so much to my sweet wife, Luisa. She's so patient with me and my passion/obsession. She shares my love for life, and for love, and we have an incredible adventure together every day. My Mom has also been an incredible inspiration to me as I grew up always watching her take pictures. She is a phenomenal photographer and continues to teach me new things about photography to this day.
I focus on fun and relaxed portraits and weddings. I focus on capturing true moments, and seek to capture YOUR love, your life, and laughs. I would be honored to photograph you and your loved ones. Have a look around the blog, and please, let me know if you have any questions at all.
