Hey there! I’m Nathan English, and I have to say, it’s an honor to have you here. If you’ve come to grab a quick glimpse into the world of a ginger wedding and elopement photographer living in the land of pleasant peninsulas, you’ve come to the right place!

I was born on the West coast, raised among the Cascade mountains of Washington, and now call America’s high-five state of Michigan my home. I married up big time when I met my wife Jana, I mean…seriously married up. We are privileged to be the stewards of our four beloved children, Ben, Norah, Olive, and Ari.  Our faith holds us steady in the storms and still waters of life. We love people, and the beauty of a life lived in authenticity, courage, and humility.  I could go on to give you a long list of the many other joys and passions of our lives, but I figure that could just happen over drinks some time if I get the privilege of meeting you in person!

Documenting weddings and elopements started for me in 2008, and I quickly came to the realization that what I had stumbled upon, was in fact far more than a job or career, but truly a joy and humbling privilege. To step into the lives of couples and join them in the intimacy and rich emotion of a marriage ceremony, documenting the honest beauty and transparency of that moment in their lives, well…it goes far beyond cameras and dresses and dance floors.  Those are all a beautiful bonus. For me, its about loving people well, and this is how I get to do just that.

Thank you again for stopping by…the world wide web is a big place, and I’m grateful you are here*


Grace and peace,
