Q&A with Nathan Larimer, Owner/photographer
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Everything I do revolves around wedding photography. That's my bread and
butter. However, I do a lot of engagements and boudoir. My couples really
appreciate our engagement sessions because of our artistic approach and
unique and often scenic locations.
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
I approach an engagement session with plenty of energy and encouragement
that will help my clients become excited about being photographed. There
will be cameras constantly clicking on their wedding day and an engagement
shoot is a great opportunity to prepare for that experience. So, even if
you don’t know if you really need engagement pictures, the experience of
the shoot will allow us to get to know each other, become comfortable with
the camera, and have a lot of fun. We’ll get some awesome shots that will
be fun to share with your friends and family, too.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
I think it’s how simple an engagement shoot can be. Sometimes the more
simple, subtle, sophisticated portrait is the best. We want to have fun,
but that doesn’t mean I’ll have you jumping into each other’s arms for an
hour or trucking around a bunch of gigantic balloons through a field.
Instead I’d rather you express your uniqueness and love in your own way
while I step back and document it.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Since engagement sessions are a great trial run for the wedding I often
offer deals on them. I want my clients to spend the big bucks at their
wedding because those images are, ultimately, more important. This way my
clients have a low risk way of experiencing my work.
