Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.

Home is Wherever I’m With You…

About six months ago I had entitled one of my posts “The Perks of Being Married to a Photographer“, and I feel like today’s post should just be a repeat; or maybe I should just call it “The Perks of Being Married to a Perkes”, and not just any ‘Perkes’…. NATE Perkes. He has, yet…

Hector Land - Is there anybody who can advise me a good tour along Silk Road?

Anonymous - Loooooove it!!!!! It was like a tv video journey and soooo special to watch!!! Like you can see your relationship and the partnership, togetherness you both share….and that song fits! Luisa!!! I cried when I read what you wrote xoxoxoxo I miss you both!!!! Love, Nicole! we just loved the video!!!

Pappa Perkes - I agree with Kate! The first part of the video, before you get to Animoto, is the best stuff you have done. YOU ARE A VIDEOGRAPHER!!! And the first time I heard the song choice I thought it was odd, but because I have now watched this fun video several times, I am loving the song . . . and humming it in my mind! Very cool!

And sorry to all the Perkes ladies, the weird face pulling trait may have been a genetic defect passed on from Pops!

Kate Perkes - Guys! LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS VIDEO!! Nate… I am yet to see you take a serious picture.. why does this trait run in the perkes boy family. I swear you all do it!! HAHA… This is my favorite video by far! Love the live and still images combined.. SO MUCH FUN!!.. Makes me want to do more video.

Nate funny funny song choice!! haha… but it actually works!

Love You Two!

Our Family - Amazing! It's no aruba but wish we could have you guys do our family pics here in dallas :)

Kelley - This was so awesome!!!!! Love the video. You two are SO cute!

An Intriguing Notion…

For reasons STILL unbeknownst to me, Nate and I have been toying with the idea of me becoming his ‘back-up photographer’ or ‘second shooter’ [sounds like a sniper term in a Bourne movie]. It has been a very intimidating experience, considering the fact that, oh I don’t know… I’M NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER!! But Nate and…

Ken and Jen Perkes - You have really blown us away with your talent, Luisa. Wonderful eye! Something that is hard to teach. Almost every shoot you two have done together, my favorite photograph turns out to be one you shot. I hope you keep doing it.

You inspired me so much that I actually offered to second shoot for Mom. She–knowing my techno skills–wisely responded: "THANKS! But don't call us; we'll call you!"

Lisa, Danny, and Blake - Luisa you're great! These definitely look like a professional. Good job girl. I definitely think you should keep doing it, especially because you'll be taking so many of your new little guy. Good job!
