Get Comfortable

Your elopement is an intimate event, as a couple or even with a few of your closest friends and family. Consider this when choosing a photographer. My clients’ most common praise is how comfortable I make them feel during a photo session. I pride myself in my ability to be perceptive of your needs and empathetic of how you feel throughout the shoot. I will do my best to fade into the background or pull people together when the moment’s right to get the perfect shot. 

What’s Your Dream Destination?

This is a big consideration when choosing a photographer for your elopement or destination wedding. You need a photographer that will get the shot no matter where you go. My career in photography began in nature – hiking miles to find the darkest skies and standing in the cold for hours to capture the stars streaking across the sky. If you’re looking for an elopement that has a touch of adventure, I urge you to choose James Nagel photography for your wedding adventure.

Or perhaps you’d like to travel to a distant destination? Maui? Or Paris, perhaps? Wherever love takes you, I want to capture your special day!
