We would probably pay just to hang out with Nick! He is super professional and efficient, but also totally hilarious and not afaid to roll up his sleeves. He is my favorite kind of person who can do his job but still have fun with things. He put up with our bad jokes, loopiness, and weird wedding and handfasting. Nick even accepted an invite to come to the venue early on for lunch to scope out what the problem and positive areas would be for photo ops.
Throughout the event he listened to any requests and bossiness that I had, and he was omnipresent all around the reception. He had the patience of a saint as I blabbed with my guests and got distracted. He was assertive but not rude or pushy when it came to be time to grab shots with just the family or just me and the groom. From his portfolio I have total trust in Nick's eye for shape and staging, and I saw him capturing scenes and details that caught my own picky eye.
Nick was familiar with a park in the area around the venue that I know made for some great shooting; he suggested it and traveled to it with us for a really fun shoot. This man trudged through mud, underbrush, and tree branches with his gear in the heat and sweating half to death. This man hung precariously like a monkey off of a bridge over the filthiest water I have ever seen with his hand in some spiderwebs just to get a shot I had requested. This man put himself, his cameras and his gear on the line in the pouring rain to provide us with beautiful rainy day photos. He accepted and worked with any whimsical suggestions that I had. And, as we were about to leave, the thunderstorm started to roll in. He actually waited there with us for the storm so we could grab some even more interesting "trash the dress" type pics. He may not have admitted it or made a big deal about it but I know he stayed way past his allotted time.
As mentioned, Nick can hang. My vocabulary provides me with the word "badass" to describe Nick and his work. Myself, my family and many of my guests, mentioned that they definitely, 100% would hire him for future events. This guy should be swimming in work, and sometimes he literally is.
