rapher was one of the most important choices of planning our wedding. We had met with a few photographers, but since we were planning our wedding from across the country, it was hard to get the right “vibe”. Until we met Nathan English. From the moment we met Nate (via Zoom) we could feel his energy and we clicked, we knew we wanted to work with him, and after looking at his portfolio we were sold. Fast forward to the wedding day, Nate showed up early to scope out locations, and without ever having met him in person, I felt like I had known him for years. Nate blended into all the festivities like family, he made everyone he came across feel comfortable and relaxed, but most of all, his talent is so great that his photographs truly capture the feeling of the day. Nate will forever be remembered by our family not just because of the truly amazing talent he shared with us, but because he was also one of the most incredible people we have ever met

nal plan to take pictures at certain locations but the weather went from sunny to pouring rain and he took over and gave us some ideas on where to take pictures and we literally just told him "Do what you think is best". We had no worries at all! He ended up sending us around 45 pictures the next day and made a slide show within two days. The pictures are AMAZING. He captures the moments that are real and authentic which is what we were looking for. WE LOVED WORKING WITH YOU AND YOUR TEAM!!!! If anyone is looking for a photographer, this is your guy! Thank you for being a part of our wedding and capturing our memories that we will forever have because of you!

If you're looking for "just a photographer", then he's not your dude! If you're looking for someone that just shows up on the day of with a fancy camera, then Nat...
han is not your dude.
Now...If you're looking for someone that is passionate for the art of photography and videography, makes it a point to understand the couple well before the wedding, is 100% present on your day, then Nathan is your person. He is willing to play so many roles for you! (coordinator/time manager, the bride's right hand man, the groom's wedding interpretor, the bridal party's favorite person) He, with my wedding planner (love greyson events), created a foolproof schedule that had 2 plans depending on weather and tons of cushion to allow for anything. He was there from the start to end and sneaked us out for the most amazing sunset pictures at the lake. Again, we are so appreciative for him and his team for their confidence and expertise. We didn't give him a lot of requirements because we trusted him fully and knew he would capture us and the day perfectly. He did just that.....way beyond our expectations! So thankful!

I can't express how happy we are with Nathan as our photographer. He went above and beyond any expectations we had. He somehow manages to over-deliver on everything in an even shorter amount of time than he quotes.
We booked Nathan for our en...
gagement session, multi-event South Asian wedding (three formal events!), and for our wedding video. Our pictures are beautiful with a great mix of traditional style and some more modern, creative pictures that no one else will have anything like. The shots from our marriage ceremony are seriously the best pictures I could ever ask for. Every emotion and important moment is captured and I cry each time I see them.
Nathan is very professional, but gave us a very personal experience that made us feel so supported and comfortable throughout one of the most important times of our lives. You will spend more time with your wedding photographer than you think, so it was a blessing to have someone with us that quickly became a friend and genuinely shared in our excitement and happiness. Booking Nathan was one of the best decision we made for our wedding!

Nathan English is a truly gifted individual and we feel so grateful that he was such a wonderful part of our wedding. From our first meeting, he was kind, enthusiastic, and so genuine. We had a blast with him at our engagement photos, he put us...
at ease immediately - we were worried about being awkward in front of the camera but that lasted about 5 seconds with Nathan. In all communication leading up to the wedding, he was extremely helpful and eager to make our big day exactly what we envisioned. He photographed our rehearsal dinner, which gave us some of the most intimate photos of the weekend, and then was present for all of the most beautiful moments of the wedding day - pre-wedding yoga & golf, hair & makeup, first look, sunset photos - he orchestrated them all perfectly. He also worked together flawlessly with our videographer/wedding planner/everybody. He has this way of setting up an incredible shot seemingly instantaneously, and his photos are far above and beyond any other work I've seen. The photos from our wedding day exceeded all my expectations and I'm so grateful to have those memories to look back on forever. What really makes Nathan special is the way I STILL have friends and family members remarking about what a great guy he is - he brings this effortless joy with him, even in the 95 degree heat that was our wedding day. He was literally on the dance floor, dancing, while taking pictures at one point. We love him, our friends and family love him, I would hire him 100x over for our wedding in a heartbeat. Hire Nathan, I honestly can't say enough awesome things about him. He's found clients for life in our little family :)

Our wedding was over Halloweekend, and my husband and his groomsman did a zombie 5K the morning of our wedding - Nathan offered to photograph this - which was above and beyond. He worked with us on our timeline and was very prompt at getting all of the family photos and then wedding party photos done when we didn't give him much time. The cherry on top was when we had our guests dress up in costumes and Nathan dressed up too! He was and is always willing to have fun with his clients, and we'd consider him a friend.
We were very impressed with his communication style, photography skills and how quickly he is able to deliver photos. We got a sample of our wedding day photos the night of, and then an additional AMAZING slide show just a few days later.

listened to everything we wanted for our photos, and we put complete trust in him. Living in Chicago and getting married in Grand Rapids, we did not know the good areas to take pictures. He had the best ideas, and was so easy to work with. We didn't feel awkward with him at any moment, and the preview he sent us (2 days after the wedding!!) was absolutely beautiful. He is such a talented photographer, and really listens to your dreams/views of what you are looking for. Pricing was VERY reasonable, and we loved that he didn't give us a time limit for the day. A lot of of other photographers will only work with you for 6+ hours, or 8+ hours and then charge you more and more. Nathan wants you to have the BEST day possible, and not worry about that kind of stuff. He shows up when you want, and leaves when you want. I twos so great to not have to worry/think about that on your wedding day. I can't wait to have another reason to work with him again.

Nathan English was by far one of the very best things to happen to us on our wedding day. Nathan IS the glue that holds things together, smooths things out, quietly and graciously keeps a timeline while snapping the most incredible, provocative, and heartwarming shots. I cannot say enough about him - Nathan knows everything about his job and executes it supremely. He even helped put in my veil! He and his awesome partner for the day, James, even captured our cake cutting on video because they noticed our videographer was mysteriously missing for the moment. He is on his game at all times and keeps you on yours. Not to mention, he may be one of the most kind and most genuine people in the world. You cannot go wrong in choosing Nathan English as your photographer - regardless of event. Every single person who saw his blog post after our wedding - even my bosses - commented on how incredible his pictures were, and my entire family was asking him about doing family/event pictures, etc.
In short, we love Nathan and hope to have the opportunity to use his services often in the future!

We had a rather large wedding party, nine bridesmaids, nine groomsmen, two ushers, and two ring bearers; Nathan handled them with ease.
Eleven days after the wedding Nathan had already e-mailed me the link to all of my photographs. He also posted a few preview pictures the morning after the wedding we were able to see before leaving on our honeymoon. The pictures were above and beyond what I was expecting.

I first met Nathan when he photographed my good friend's wedding in which I was a bridesmaid. I knew after chatting with him for a few minutes, seeing how he worked, and viewing the photographs from her wedding, that this was definitely going to be the photographer for us when we got married. From the very first time I reached out to Nathan via email, communication was extremely easy! His responses were prompt, and he was happy to answer the many questions I had for him in the early stages of our wedding planning. He was also very flexible, working with me to create the perfect photography package for us!
Nathan's down-to-earth, fun personality immediately puts you at ease the moment you meet him, making it an absolute joy to work with him. I really appreciated how he interacted with our family and friends throughout the day and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Ever since the wedding, I have had countless friends and family comment about how wonderful Nathan was to work with; we couldn't agree more! Nathan was extremely hardworking and professional; capturing every shot he wanted while making it a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone involved! What I appreciated the most about Nathan was that he encouraged me several times throughout the day to just slow down and truly enjoy our wedding day, not getting caught up in all the fussy little details. Having a photographer who kept calm under pressure, who never made us feel hurried or rushed, and who understood the importance of enjoying the wedding day, meant the world to me.
The only thing that matched Nathan's great personality was his ability to capture stunning photographs. Each photo that Nathan takes is not merely a picture, but truly a one-of-a-kind work of art. The photos I have seen so far from our wedding day have all taken my breath away, each more beautiful than the last! Thank you Nathan for your outstanding work!

His photos are seriously amazing- you could never be disappointed with Nathan English or his work :)

I cannot express how wonderful it was to have Nathan be a part of our special day. Not only was he the most affordable photographer for the style we were looking for, but he was also willing to travel to our destination in Michigan without an a...
dditional fee. But his worth goes far beyond monetary measures. From the moment Nathan arrived the morning of our wedding, I felt instantly comfortable around him. He was flexible, complementary, enthusiastic and so FUNNY! Our friends and family could not stop raving about how great he was! Nathan also took the time to stake out great photo ops, without pulling us from our guests for very long at all. Before even seeing our pictures I already knew that Nathan was the best investment we made for our wedding, but once we received the pictures I am beyond pleased and feel so grateful to him for capturing our day so perfectly. I would 100% recommend Nathan for anyone looking to truly capture the magic of their wedding day.

Nathan photographed our wedding last week and we could not be happier with our decision to hire him. He made the entire day effortless, worked with the other vendors during the wedding and kept us all on time and in line. One of the coolest thi...
ngs Nathan does, and I don't know of many other photographers that do, is to dedicate his entire day to you from start to finish. He made me feel like I am the only client he has (which I have seen his crazy schedule and know that's not the case!) and like my groom and I were the most important thing all day. He was also not phased by our crazy, loud families and respected all of our requests.
I cannot express how much we enjoyed having Nathan share our experience with us and capture our wedding day. Everyone in the wedding party felt completely comfortable with him and free to be themselves.The photos we have seen so far are stunning and I know the rest of them will exceed our expectations as well.
If you are looking for a photographer in the Grand Rapids area (or anywhere as he will travel) look no further. Book Nathan ASAP! You won't regret a thing.

take amazing photos with beautiful backdrops. One of the things I loved the most is at the reception he set up a big computer screen showing shots he had taken throughout the day. Everyone loved seeing the pictures of us getting ready and everything else they weren't able to see earlier. The ability to view some of the photos this quickly was amazing. I instantly fell in love with everything I was seeing. This is the link to a few of our pictures http://www.nathanenglishphotography.com/blog/michael/marci
Not only were the photos out of this world but he went above and beyond the entire day! He helped organize and smooth out situations when they got a little "hairy". He took the guys flowers to them and kept everyone on schedule. He was enjoyable to be around, so easy to talk to and felt like an old friend in no time. He even came out on the dance floor with us while still managing to capture great pictures! Pretty sure I saw him doing the sprinkler while taking photos which was absolutely amazing. There wasn't one person he didn't get along with at the wedding.
I would highly recommend using him as your photographer! I am certain you cannot find anyone better :) I will use him for anything I can in the future.

thought if he could make it look that beautiful I wouldn't be worried about the weather on our wedding day! I was right - our wedding day brought rain, sleet, sun, and more rain, but I knew Nathan would make it beautiful no matter what, and he absolutely delivered! Not only is he an amazing photographer, he is a fantastic person - so fun and easy to be around, spreading his enthusiasm to the whole wedding party. Many people commented on how great Nathan was at my wedding, and the flood of praise increased after he posted sneak peek photos on his blog only three days after the wedding. He captured our day in ways I couldn't have dreamed of. I can't imagine having anyone else document our special day, and I know he will be the first person we contact when our family expands to capture all our big moments.

I recently told Nathan, "you are the glue that held me together on my wedding day." That statement may sound confusing and outrageous for some, but let me lay it out so it makes a little more sense.
I had no idea how important it was to ha...
ve a photographer with not only tremendous technical ability, but a very dynamic personality. Not only does Nathan produce some of the most idyllic wedding photos I've seen, but he has such a gift for directing and interacting with others that is unparalleled.
From the first look photos with the groom, to the wedding party photos, to the family photos; I was so impressed and put at ease that Nathan was able to interact and gracefully direct varying personalities. Considering, for most, you spend more time with the photographer leading up to the ceremony, than the groom, personality is KEY!
During the wedding, Nathan was also so wonderful at capturing all the perfect moments without being intrusive. From start to finish, I felt encouraged, excited, and confident about the work in progress.
After the wedding was all said and done and we received our photos, I was overjoyed with the final work. They are such a good balance of photos leading up to the ceremony and during the ceremony. He captured details and big picture. Most importantly, Nathan really captured the personality and impression both the groom and myself wanted guests to take away. I still have random people rant and rave over the beautiful work Nathan put forth.
There are many wonderful photographers, but very few that posses all the traits Nathan posses. He is a dime a dozen. I can't recommend him enough and will continue to do so. I can't wait for the day I will hire him again.

We opted for 2 photographers so we could get more coverage. Nathan stayed with me while the girls got ready, and the guys took Nick (the 2nd photographer) golfing. We all had an amazing time and the pictures are all fantastic! He captured so much of the details of our suite at the Amway Grand where we got ready, the Church and the ceremony, Rockwell's downtown, and the Goei Center. He gave us 700 beautiful pictures!
He also give the option for buying the rights of the pictures. That is priceless! If we want to go to Costco and make it a canvas picture, we can! It's the option to go for!
