Nate has always loved capturing the energy and joy of life with a camera. In fact, Nate’s first job was selling digital cameras at Best Buy. In 2008 Nate began to cultivate the art of portrait photography. Later that year he met Alex, and she made his heart beat a little faster. Alex encouraged Nate to take his fledgling professional photography business to the next level. After getting married on January 1st, 2011, Nate and Alex have become a nationally published husband & wife wedding photography team that’s captured the stories of over 200 incredible wedding days!
