We chose Nick as the photographer for our March 17 wedding and wedding party several weeks later.
Nick was the first photographer to reply to my Thumbtack post, but that wasn't the reason I chose him. I checked out his website and loved what I saw. I enjoyed the photos of the other weddings he had done, but also the fact that he started with a background in another area - sports photography. Since our wedding was not exactly traditional, I liked that he had a different style, but could still execute the traditional shots most couples want to have.
We met with Nick to make sure the fit was right and I could tell immediately that it was. His first step was to listen to us, learn more about us, our relationship, our plans for the day and what we wanted in our pictures. We just liked his openness, friendliness and unpretentious attitude. I could tell that Nick was going to be that perfect combination of responsive to us but also would make recommendations where he saw fit, using his professional eye and experience.
On our wedding day, Nick could not have done a better job. He was so accommodating to our needs, never made us feel like we were asking too much, went to three different locations to shoot pictures, and most importantly made us feel comfortable in what is certainly not a typical day for anyone! He took the shots we wanted but also made great suggestions on shots we might not have thought of and took some fantastic candids just as we were walking to and from each setting for the day.
Finally, we got the pictures about a week after the wedding and they are outstanding! So professional, great use of lighting and focus. I don't know the proper terms to use to describe the style of pictures, but I just love them.
One of the most important things about Nick is that he gives you the pictures of your wedding - that's included in the price. It's incredible to just have them, either up on a website where you can download them or on a thumbdrive, without having to feel limited because you can only select a certain number.
We still have our wedding party to do next weekend, and I'm excited for the additional pictures of family and friends we'll get at that event. I know Nick will do a fantastic job and we'll just have even more great pictures to go through when it's all done.
I would not hesitate to use Nick's services again and will absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding or event photographer.
