    Nathaniel is a photographer from Santa Barbara, CA that we flew into Grand Cayman for our wedding. Nathaniel was great! From the beginning, I knew that the photography would be the area I was very picky about. From the moment I saw his pictures, I knew that I’d have to have him! :) We didn’t give him much guidance, but because of the beautiful work he does, we knew that we would be fine. Nathaniel and his wife/second shooter, Jenny, met us a few days before the wedding. From that instant, you could tell they were great people…and I would have to say that Jenny is about the nicest person you could ever meet! They talked to us about their plan and told us that the next day they were going to drive around the island looking for spots to take pictures for the trash the dress session. The day of our wedding, they came to where we were getting ready and were very professional and friendly the whole time. They were very good at getting all the shots we wanted –we didn’t have to worry about a thing! At the reception, we had them sit with our guests to eat and everyone loved them! They were always there to take all the pictures, even when the boys jumped in the pool at the end of the reception.

    We really got to know them the next day with the trash the dress session. They drove us around and we took pictures all day! They are really sweet and accommodating people. We thought they worked really well together, bouncing ideas off of each other of what would look nice. The session ended up going for 6 hours, but the pictures we’ll get from that session is going to be well worth it. We haven’t seen any pictures yet, but we know they’ll be beautiful. I’ve seen many beautiful brides on Nathaniel’s site, but they made me feel like the most beautiful bride on my wedding day –and you can tell that they make every single bride feel that way on their special day.

          I'm so bummed. I tried to get him for my wedding and he's booked for another wedding in Tulum. I've heard such great things about him. O'well. On to the next.

                Was Nathaniel on the high or low end price wise.  I am having such a hard time figuring out what i want to do about photography.
