The Knot Best of Weddings - 2019 Pick

Kind Words

Nate is the best! He was so genuine and funny that it was hard not to feel comfortable with him. On the wedding day stresses are high and Nate made it the smoothest possible and added some fun to ease the pressure. If you contact him he will always respond right away. We received so many beautiful pictures from Nate and every picture had great detail and editing done. I can't recommend Nate enough!
- Breana, Bride

It's a good feeling to look through your wedding photos and think "Man we hired the right photographer." Nate Smith did an incredible job shooting our wedding, and several years later we are still in love with the photos... Nate always has a smile on his face and is quick on his feet to make sure he doesn't miss a moment. When the day comes and things inevitably start going wrong, it's a relief to know your photographer is adaptable, positive, and calm. We can't recommend him enough!
- Julian, Groom

Nate was absolutely amazing, he went above and beyond in helping us plan out our day and find the perfect location. He hiked up trails in the rain, down hills to the bottom of the water fall, stoped traffic and stood in the middle of the street and climbed over guard rails in the snow just to get the perfect photographs. I can’t stress enough how much we enjoyed working with Nate, he was absolutely fantastic!
- Ben, Groom

Let me just say Nate has a talent you won't find in many other photographers. We loved working with him because he's incredibly talented and has the artistic eye... He's fun to work with, talented, artistic and easy going. I recommend Nate Smith Photography for your wedding and you won't be disappointed.
- Sophie, Bride

Working with Nate was fantastic. He was always timely with his communication and was someone we always looked forward to hear from. His experience speaks not only through his amazing photography but his well timed choreography. He never misses a beat and catches moments that take your breath away. He is very personable and gets to know his clients so he can capture what’s most important to you. My wife and I couldn’t imagine anyone else having captured our wedding day and would have it no other way. We also purchased a printed wedding album through him. We are very impressed with the quality and are proud to display and show it to anyone and everyone.
- Josh, Groom

We hired Nate Smith as our wedding photographer and it was the best decision we made for our wedding! Can't even begin to describe how wonderful he was to work with... My husband and I are definitely camera shy but Nate helped us feel comfortable being in front of a camera. We had so much fun working with him on our wedding day!
- Maria, Bride

Nate was the perfect photographer. From beginning to end he is the perfect combination of flexible and professional. As a nervous bride planning our wedding, the photos were the most important aspect to me and I wanted someone who would add their professional expert opinion and still listen to what we wanted- if you're gonna have someone follow you around all day, Nate's the best!
- AnnMarie, Bride

Nate and his assistant got to know everyone and caught all of us at our best. I couldn't have asked for someone better. He was absolutely the ideal person to capture my dream day! I married the man of my dreams and all the photos captured our love and the family and friends we treasure.
- Debbi, Bride

I could not have asked for a better experience with Nate. He is professional, timely, and talented. Many of our guests made comments throughout the wedding day and after that they were impressed by him. Nate really captured our love and happiness on our most important day! We just got our pictures back from our wedding and they are all stunning. I have received so many compliments on the photos. I can't recommend him enough.
- Kelsey, Bride

Choosing a wedding photographer is no small feat, and we could not have made a better choice! Nate Smith was amazing. He was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process, from the days leading up to the big day to the very last photo of the night. He was fun, professional, incredibly organized, and he knew exactly what he was looking for (and even helped us cross our fingers for good weather on the Oregon Coast!). He was more than willing to interact with our guests, and made sure that they felt like they were more than bystanders. The pictures turned out amazing, and are somehow even better than we had anticipated! We can't recommend Nate Smith enough, and are incredibly happy with the decision.
