WEDDING RELATED QUESTIONS
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am based out of St. John’s / Clarenville, NL. I currently live in Clarenville but the majority of my work is based in St. John’s and across the province. I am available for work province-wide (and world-wide)!
What equipment do you use?
I use Canon professional series camera bodies, Canon/Sigma lenses and Canon flashes. I also come prepared with additional batteries, memory cards, a tripod, light modifiers, and light stands to be used if needed! On a typical wedding day, I dual shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV with a Canon EF 50mm/1.2L lens and a Canon 5D Mark III with a Sigma 35mm F1.4 (Art) lens, along with Canon flashes and Magmod flash diffusers!
HOW DID YOU LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY?
I always had a knack for photography, but I really began learning in university when I started shooting landscape photography! I began taking my camera everywhere with me, and shooting everything I could! People, landscapes, food, etc. I took part in several photography workshops online, and researched as much as I could! In 2015 I shot my first wedding, and the rest is history! After that, I was hooked! I knew I wanted to shoot weddings from that day forward, and I built my business from the ground up! I have now shot over 25 weddings in the last 2 years, and will be shooting over 15 more in the next year! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!
what is your style?
My style is best described as candid, unposed, and real! I love capturing those moments when you forget I’m even there, and are simply just enjoying your partners company.
WHO will YOU SHOOT?
Nathan Eddy Photography is a culturally diverse and LGBTQ inclusive business! I love working with people from various walks of life! I would absolutely love to shoot any type of wedding — LGBTQ/Christian/Indian/Persian/Jewish/Non-Religious, etc.
MYSELF AND/OR MY partner ARE UNCOMFORTABLE BEING IN PHOTOS. CAN YOU HELP?
Absolutely! It’s my job to help! If you’re somebody who just hates being in photos, I try to shoot quickly, and chat in between! As we are moving around, I like to crack jokes, and get to know you, so it feels like we are “hanging out” rather than “doing business”! If you’re somebody who just doesn't feel comfortable in photos, it is my job to make you look and feel great! I have a very laid back approach, so there’s no pressure at all! Afterwards, a lot of my clients say how much fun they had, and how relaxed they felt during their shoot. If you’re booking your wedding photography with me, I highly recommend an engagement shoot to get those gitters out of the way! We will explore and have fun, and ensure that you’re ready for your big day!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
My calendar fills up pretty quickly, so you should plan to book about 16-20 months in advance! If you are planning your wedding in a shorter timeframe, please send me an email and we can discuss availability!
HAVE YOU SHOT AT OUR LOCATION BEFORE?
Chances are if you are getting married in the St. John’s area that I have been to your venue before! If I haven’t, not to worry — I am confident that I will do an excellent job capturing it! I always show up early to take a look around the venue, and I absolutely love a fresh new location!
Do we have to provide you with a meal at dinner?
Yes please! If you’d like me to shoot during the dinner/reception, I would prefer a sit down meal! I love sitting with guests, getting to know them, enjoying a hot meal, and shooting throughout. Don’t forget to add me to the seating chart, because if I’m poked away in the basement trying to eat, I’ll miss all of fun stuff like the speeches, toasts, and any games you may have planned! If you choose not to provide a meal, I will take a 1 hour break during the dinner portion of the evening to grab a meal elsewhere!
HOW AND WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
You will receive your fully edited high-resolution gallery within 10-14 weeks via digital download. You will have your own private password-protected gallery that you can view and share with others!
