    There just are not enough positive adjectives that come to mind to describe what it was like working with Nathaniel Thompson as the photographer for our wedding. He is awesomely talented as a photographer, which goes without saying given the other photos that he has posted on the forum, but from the moment we met in person on the beach in Puerto Vallarta I could just tell he was also an awesome person!

    Nathaniel (and his assistant Norm) joined us for 4 days. They were relaxed, fun, gracious, and always professional. We enjoyed talking with them but when we weren’t, my husband and I honestly didn’t notice they were there at all – which I mean as the highest compliment because I know they were there catching everything on film. Both of our families took to Nathaniel instantly and kept saying over and over again how glad they were that we had flown a photographer with us to shoot the rehearsal dinner, wedding and TTD. And our wedding coordinator for Las Caletas, Kelley, emailed me afterwards saying she was very impressed with him, both his personality and that she loved that he took some really creative shots at LC that other photographers hadn’t done before. She said she hoped to see him there again (hint, hint to future LC brides who don’t have a photographer yet??).

    I’ll post photos when I can – Nathaniel somehow managed to put together a slideshow at the reception of the photos he’d taken so far and everyone, including me, was just amazed so I know the rest will be marvelous. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.

          I was keeping track of all the pictures I wanted to comment on & then I just got wrapped up in the slideshow & forgot most.

          He captured so many sweet moments, like the hand holding at your rehersal dinner. Love the fire pictures, the ones of the guests laughing during the ceremony...too many to name them all.

          Also, your wedding looks like it was wonderful and I love you wedding hair.
