You are a couple looking for more than a person to show up on your wedding day and snap a few photos. You're looking for someone to celebrate alongside you. You want someone who gets genuinely excited when you find the perfect shoes to go with your dress, and goes gaga over your color palette. You're looking for photographers who will treat you like rock stars at your engagement session, and royalty at your bridal. You're looking for someone who will listen to every detail of your wedding and capture all the small things that mean the world to you. You believe that photos from today can look timeless. You even think getting your photo taken should be fun. You want someone who will meet with you every time you have a question, and check in from time to time just to be sure things are going great.

You want someone who knows your wedding as well as you do, so you can forget about them on your wedding day. You want photographers who might just shed a few tears during your ceremony. And when it's all over and you've started your new adventure, you want someone who will sit down with you for as long as it takes to create the perfect album.

Nathan and Amy are an absolute blast to work with. My husband and I had our engagement pictures done with them in addition to shooting our wedding. Their work is phenomenal and their style meshed with ours perfectly. They're super fun and easy to be around which causes the final product of the pictures to be stunning. We are SO glad we had the privilege of working with Nathan and Amy and hope we get an excuse to do so again in the future!

Nathan and Amy were great! I researched many, many photographers and was very impressed with their shooting style. Nathan was very flexible with our engagement shoot (due to unforeseen events and weather patterns) and was able to get us engagement photos quickly for us to use in our guest book. All of our friends and family absolutely loved our engagement photos - we love how fun and natural Nathan made us look! Nathan and Amy were also very flexible with us on the day of our wedding, and even came and got a few shots of my hair/makeup even though it was before their allotted time. They were absolutely invisible during the ceremony which was amazing (we hate when we see photographers jump in the aisle when the bride is walking down!) and completely blended in with the guests during the reception. One of our friends snapped a picture of Nathan laying on the floor getting a shot of our crazy friends dancing! They were fabulous - and we can't wait to see the pictures!

When selecting a photographer, we wanted someone who was going to help us create a unique and fresh experience from so many others we had seen in the industry. Nathan and Amy are an incredible husband & wife team who work tirelessly to provide the best photography service around. They are so sweet and down to earth that we had no trouble feeling immediately comfortable with them. Nathan took the time to tailor our engagement session to our every desire, traveled with us to multiple locations, and created the most special and unique memories for us. He truly puts his clients and their feelings and desires first above all and could not be a more fun person to work with. On our wedding day, he and Amy were right on time which any bride can appreciate! I was amazed that they seemed to capture every single special little nuance of the day, even though we hardly even knew they were there! After the wedding my husband and I would say, "gosh I hope they caught this or that" and when we got our photos back, we were overjoyed because they literraly did not miss a thing! All of our friends and family just raved about their photos. 5 months later we still have people commenting on how gorgeous all of our photos, engagement and wedding, are. Not only are the filters and colors gorgeous but their fresh perspective is exactly what we wanted. Their professionalism is like no other--you will not be disappointed when you choose them for your next special event! We are still working with them to produce a photo book of our favorites from our wedding day and I have to say, even 5 months after our wedding they still treat us like a priority to them, even though I know they are starting over with countless other lucky couples! My husband and I cannot say enough about how pleased we have been to work with Nathan Russell Photography. I would easily recommend them ten times over!

Nathan and Amy are amazing! They did our bridal shoot, my mehendi and our wedding day. The bridal shoot pictures were beautiful and really captured what we wanted - something classy and romantic and ethereal. Nathan and Amy both had great ideas, were very friendly and helpful during the shoot. He made sure to go through the list of the poses we had wanted as well.

The pictures from my mehendi captured the event too - fun and girly and they got great pictures of the artwork on everyone. They were fun guests and joined in on the festivities and at no point during the mehendi or wedding did anyone ever feel as though they were in the way - they made everyone feel at ease and comfortable and got some fabulous candid pictures.

Our wedding day was a marathon! Nathan and Amy met with us beforehand and really sat down and wanted to know all about our traditions and what pictures we wanted where and when and discussed all the details of the schedule. We had a smaller wedding than most Indians but it was still crazy nonetheless. We briefly discussed a third shooter and decided it wouldn't be necessary but in hindsight I do wish we had gotten one just so we would have gotten even more variety from the various important moments throughout the day. Our procession down the aisle went too quickly and folks were spread out over the entire venue during the reception so pictures of those types of things would have been easier to get with more shooters. Overall the hectic day made it impossible to do everything and the ones that they did get were amazing but of course we brides will always want more pictures! Keep that in mind if you'll have a larger wedding or even plan to have it in a large space.

We took entrance pictures with everyone and had a photo booth available during the reception - the pictures from both were priceless and everyone had a great time in the photobooth!

We got our pictures in great time and Nathan was always very accessible throughout the process for questions. Nathan and Amy were always professional, incredibly patient and kind with our crazy families and were always on time. They really have an eye for the most important moments in life and how to capture them - their pictures have such immense personality and are absolutely beautiful. They are great, sweet people and we'd work with them again in a second!

Nathan and Amy were always right where they needed to be to capture everything, and not intrusive in any way. They just always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. Can't wait to see the photos. I know they will be amazing, as the engagement photos already are. We were able to use some of them at the wedding and were so very pleased with his work. He is very organized and professional, and always quick to respond to calls or emails. His work is amazingly creative, and you would be fortunate to be able to have Nathan and Amy capture your memories.

Nathan was a great friend of my photographer Anita Roach who joined her as a second shooter for our wedding. I met him the day of the wedding, but I as well as the wedding party was instantly comfortable due to his relaxed nature and sense of humor. He helped to stage wonderful and fun images and captured precious moments throughout the day. His style of editing is unique and fit our vintage theme perfectly. I would highly recommend him for your wedding photography!

Nathan Russell Photography - the ideal photographer for your wedding or any other occassion!!

Nathan Russell's photography is timeless!! In my search for the best in planning for a wedding, Nathan Russell was an absolute. Nathan has talent, experience, professionalism, and such a genuine personality. His photographs really exemplify the quality and time he puts into his work. Needless to say, we felt like movie stars in our photos!

We were so lucky to find him in our search, and could not have picked a better person to work with. He absolutely captured the best and most beautiful moments from our special day.

Our engagement session was included in our package, and that was a blast! We found a unique part of Austin, and had so much fun taking pictures. Nathan was so positive, energetic, and creative throughout the whole experience. He is SO incredible to work with, and just easy-going. We felt an instant comfortable, friend-like bond with Nathan, and that made it so easy to pose and do the cute, lovey-dovey stuff on camera! Nathan's positive vibes towards the big day became contagious. I could feel a sincere and genuine excitement about our wedding day!

After we got our absolutely amazing engagement photos back, we showed them to friends and family... everyone was blown away! The engagement photos really highlight the relationship we feel in our hearts.

We were married in late September 2010 in Austin, TX. Our wedding day was the most memorable time of our lives, and Nathan was able to capture that in all of his photos. He was non-intrusive and his positive and professional personality blended very well with our families and wedding party. Nathan, his beautiful wife, Amy, and second photographer, Bryan were all taking pictures galore that night, and to be honest... most of the time I had no idea they were even there! Which was so ideal! They were stealth, professional, talented, and most of all... they captured such tendor moments. Nathan, Amy, and Bryan also set up a fun-loving photobooth, and that was such a hit! It was very entertaining for our guests, and the results were such a great surprise for us!!

Bottom line: Our wedding photobooth, ceremony, reception, and dancing photos were amazing! Again, move-star quality, and such great love and fun is evoked from each picture. Nathan Russell knows his photography, and we were so gratelful to have him on our wedding day. We are beyond happy to be able to show these photos for years to come.

We would highly recommend him to anyone for any occasion, and plan to use his services in the future.

Nathan, Amy, and Bryan, We wish much love and happiness to you always!
