Beth is an amazing photographer. Her work is outstanding and beyond her talent she is extremely professional and thoughtful. I was continuously surprised by her communication, professionalism and talent! I could not have been happier with the pictures and entire experience working with her.
I used Nariko's Nest last summer for my wedding photos and it was a fantastic decision! Not only was she reasonably priced but the pictures came out fabulous! Beth was great to work with and has a great eye. We really liked the documentary style but we were also really happy because she was able to also take some more formal portraits as well. Honestly when we saw our photos they were better than we ever would have imagined. Not only was she a great photographer but she helped us with coordinating our day as well and setting up time frames. She was also really accommodating and allowed us to print all of our own photos and we saved a ton of money that way. I would highly recommend her to anyone. In fact she is shooting my friends wedding this upcoming June too.
At Nariko's Nest we understand that the story of your romance and your wedding day is unique to you and we pride ourselves on being the storytellers of this milestone in your life. We don't just photograph your wedding, we capture the "moments in between" that make your day unforgettable. To us, the charm of photography lives in these moments. When the inherent beauty of in the moment photography blends with the emotions and joy of your wedding day the result is a stunning, photojournalistic reflection of you own, personal love story.
We pride ourselves on accommodating you personally and we would love to connect with you, learn more about your story and create a custom collection for you that fits within your budget and gives attention to what is most important to you.
We would love to help you! We make custom packages to meet ANY budget. Contact us and we will put one together for you to meet your unique needs. We love photography and we love weddings - we want to make sure everyone gets the photos they deserve.
SO HOW HEAVY IS YOUR CAMERA BAG? : We're Nikonophiles here at Nariko's Nest and we use various Nikon cameras, Nikon lenses, remote flash systems, diffusers, filters, umbrellas - everything we need to make you look even more gorgeous than you already are!
DIGITAL NEGATIVES - CAN WE KEEP THEM? : You can! We offer you the digital negatives as part of your package so you can save more money and print your own photos! We do recommend you spend some of the savings on a good photo printer so all of the beautiful colors come to life. Conversely if you can't be bothered with print details (printers can be so annoying!) let us handle it! We'll get it taken care of for you professionally and quickly.
I LOVE THAT PHOTO BUT MY HUSBAND HAS SOMETHING IN HIS TEETH! : No worries! We will touch up every photo and leave no detail unnoticed. Your digital negatives will be ready to print and beautiful!
WHAT WILL YOU COVER ON OUR BIG DAY? : Everything! Seriously. We will be there from the beginning to the end. Although the collections page states we offer 6 hours of service, a little bird told us that you'll get much more than just 6 hours! Like we said we want to make sure everyone gets the photos they deserve. This is an all-important milestone in your life and it's an honor for us to photograph it. We want to be there to capture all the special moments!
ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS? - Informal, low key and without the 100 guests - yes we love engagement sessions! In fact we love them so much that we actually bought a 27' Catalina sailboat to use a unique background for your engagement photos! We guarantee they will be unique and unlike any other engagement photos you have seen! Please view our engagement photos section to see a recent engagement session on the boat. Allow at least 3 hours for a sailboat engagement session. It costs an extra $200 to rent the sailboat for your pictures but you get amazing pictures, a sailboat cruise in the San Diego bay, champagne and strawberries! There is plenty of space to change below deck for different clothing options. We can do high fashion photo style shots or we can keep it low key in bathing suits and board shorts. We hire a sailboat captain for these sailings so our attention is on you and on capturing the perfect photos. Other additions available upon request
I STILL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS : Ask away! Being informed is key - please contact us with any other questions you have. We appreciate the opportunity to help you. Contact us at Beth@NarikosNest.com or 413-977-6070.
I have a special pose that will help erase a double chin in photos. If we meet up I can teach it to you!
Besides that the best tip for the big day is just to be yourself and let me do all the work!
