Let’s Do This!
I’m gonna keep it real with you. The memories you have of your wedding day will be more than just closeups of wedding bands and you walking down the isle. I will, of course, get some beautiful shots of those details too but if those are the only type of photos you’re looking for, we might not be a good match. I tell stories with my images, I am a visual storyteller.
I aim to connect with you both, the soul of your relationship, so I can capture all the authentic moments. And on your wedding day, I’ll be trusted to be your second set of eyes (a job I don’t take lightly!). Your mom beginning to tear up as you put on your wedding dress or tux, that special moment you and your partner lock eyes for the first time at the alter and when you were busy entertaining guests, you KNOW I photographed your grandma getting low to Notorious B.I.G! I might have even joined her for a second while I snapped away.
These are all the moments that will make your wedding day, well, yours! And I’ll be there to capture it all as it unfolds.
My names Nato
People usually have a lot of questions about the way I grew up.
My parents met right before my mom graduated from college. My dad was just finishing up repairs to a 64’ Thai junk sailboat. They decided to get married and sail around the Caribbean. And then two years in, I came along. They docked in Bonaire, my mom’s favorite island, and so began my childhood.I grew up living in that sailboat and on that island. I spent my days with my pet goat Petunia and exploring the ocean. I met people from all over the world and was raised trilingual, speaking English, Dutch and Papiamentu. But the language that embedded itself the deepest into my soul was the one of adventure.
My parents gave me this gift. They created a belief in me that dreams are not distant; they are attainable. I learned how to live boldly, with reckless abandon. They showed me that pure, unadulterated love breeds a life of adventure.
I can’t describe how grateful I am to my clients for allowing me to witness such strength and commitment. I feel humbled and delighted to be trusted with these memories.
