Where are you based? Do you travel?

I live in Portland, Oregon with my awesome wife Sarah and son Miles. We have lived here for about 10 years after spending time in Canada, California, and Arizona.
Traveling is one of my favorite things about photography, and I'm available to shoot most places. Travel fees to consider include airfare and lodging.

I'm super awkward and don't like getting my picture taken. Am I a lost cause? Destined for bad photos? Going to be miserable?

NO!! Believe it or not most people feel like you. Convinced that they don't take good pictures, when the truth is that they've never felt comfortable when taking pictures. This is why the relationship between you and me really matters. In order for you to relax and enjoy the process your going to need to trust me. My emphasis is always on relaxing and having fun because I believe that is when people are most confident and look their best. The most common thing I hear after a shoot is "that was so easy/fun/much better than I thought it would be". Trust me, we are going to have a good time and get great results.

What kind of couples do you work with?

I work with couples who are:

madly in love with each other
value creating and having memories
not afraid to get dirty
comfortable being themselves

What's your shooting style?

I'd describe my style as natural and authentic to the individual. Every couple has their own candid style and dynamic that I try and capture. Basically I join your family for the weekend and try to discover who you are. I shoot mostly with natural light and focus on authentic moments between people. I may give you some direction, but mostly I'm there to help you relax and capture your interaction with each other.

Can we get together before our wedding?

100% yes! I want to get together and go over the plan for your day, get to know each other and make sure your totally comfortable with me before you book me. I hop on zoom with every couple before they book me and if your in the Portland area I'd love to grab coffee or a beer.

How do I book you?

Shoot me an email! To reserve your date I just need a signed contract and deposit.

Do you offer packages with a second shooter?

Yes! The more the merrier. Let me know if that's something your interested in and I've got some great second shooters I love working with.

Can we see some full galleries of weddings?

Yes! I want to make sure you know what you are getting, so I want you to see full wedding galleries I've delivered to couples. You can find them at https://www.natemeedsphoto.com/full-weddings-gallery/

How many pictures will we get?

It varies but usually around 500 for a wedding. I shoot lots and always deliver quality over quantity. Make sure you look at the full galleries to get a good idea.

How long will you be at my wedding?

The whole time. I only offer full day packages because I don't want to miss anything. You've worked hard towards your big day and I was to make sure that you remember every bit of it.

Do you shoot things other than weddings?

Yes. I do a wide variety of portraits, products, events, etc. Shoot me an email with what you have in mind!

I have more questions

No doubt! Contact me and I'd love to answer them.
