Client Reviews

Nate and Rachel are amazing-not only do they take beautiful pictures but they are also two of the nicest people you will ever meet!! My husband and I planned our wedding from Florida so we didn’t get to meet them before the wedding. We never had an ounce of worry because we were in constant communication through email where they answered all of my questions promptly and kept me informed leading up to the wedding. They are both such talented photographers and captured every single detail of our day from start to finish while keeping us on schedule. They were so easy and fun to work with –they didn’t flinch when we asked them to jump on four wheelers with us to ride to another location to take our portraits! It was wonderful not to have to worry about anything because they guided us through each shot and we knew everything would be taken care of because they had discussed each shot with us beforehand with a detailed checklist. We are truly in love with every single picture that they took. Each one captures an important moment of our day and shows how happy and excited we are. We are so grateful that we were able to have such a talented team to photograph our wedding because we will forever remember that day in detail when we look at our beautiful photos. Thank you both so much!”

Nate has been wonderful to work with over the past few months. Our engagement session was upbeat and fun. The location was perfect and original, and Nate and Rachel really made us feel at ease. When we got the proofs back, we were really blown away at how the beautiful shots he got! He is good at direction, and making you feel like you are in good hands, and that really reflects in the pictures. We are more than excited to see how the wedding pictures turn out!”

When planning a wedding, every couple has to decide what is really important to them. For us, it was choosing the perfect photographer who would capture our special day in the way that we could look back in 50 years and still remember the magic, the love and celebration of our wedding. I spent a lot of time scouting for photographers and once I discovered Nathan’s site, I knew immediately that he was the photographer I had been looking for. I fell in love with his photojournalistic style and his ability to capture the details and special moments that make each wedding unique. If I was impressed before our first meeting, I was absolutely blown away after our consultation with Nathan and Rachel. They were so warm people and clearly very passionate about their work. The images from our engagement session last fall were more beautiful that we could have imagined – our quickly approaching October wedding can’t come soon enough! We are fortunate and blessed to have Nathan and Rachel play such a lasting role in our most memorable day. ”

Nathan and Rachel were more than we could ever have asked for in wedding photographers. Not only did they impeccably capture every special moment of our wedding (even ones we didn’t realize happened), but they also worked with our dreams of having our engagement photos taken in Boone where we met and they kept us calm when it rained up until minutes before our wedding! I can’t tell you how many compliments we have gotten on our pictures from family and friends. In their pictures they seem to use light in the most amazing ways, and that was one of our favorite things about their photos when we first chose to use them. Thanks to Nate and Rachel, we have photos that make you want to both laugh and cry when you look at them because they stir your emotions and touch your heart. We can’t imagine working with anyone else and we wish we could have them around all the time to capture every moment in our lives!

Thanks guys! We appreciate all you have done for us!”

A++! Nate is super talented and has a vision for each shoot. He and Rachel are a fun, easy-to-work-with team who recently shot my engagement session. The photos are incredible, creative, and better than I could’ve imagined! Nate picked out a fun location that reflected our personalities and truly captured our love for each other. Photo editing and print quality are top of the line! It’s been a great experience. I just can’t wait for him to shoot my wedding!”

I want to begin by saying that I LOVE these two! They are fun and easy to work with and they rolled easily with whatever needed to happen in the moment. Beyond that, I could tell that they truly enjoyed what they were capturing. The quality of the finished product is incredible. It is honestly better than I imagined and continues to elicit “ooh’s and aaah’s” from our family and friends, including some with years of experience in the visual arts field. My darling Bride and I highly recommend Nathan Abplanalp and Rachel. Thanks guys!”

Nathan and Rachel are a phenomenal team! Bennett and I were so excited to have such talented photographers part of our big day. Nate and Rach both pay close attention to the little details and make even the staged family photos interesting. A HUGE thanks to the both of them for helping making our wedding unforgettable.”

Securing Nathan as my wedding photographer was one of the first things I did after getting engaged. His photos are just the right blend of artsy, progressive and classic. Nathan and Rachel shot my wedding on May 21, 2011, and they were patient, thoughtful and creative. I’ve only seen a handful of shots so far, but those have been breathtaking. I can’t wait to see the rest.”
