If you are looking for a wedding photographer with a great eye for detail, works quickly, and communicates frequently, choose Natalie. She knew just how to capture my wedding! Her style is modern, romantic, and candid. She was patient and managed to get everything we wanted in terms of shots - there are so many things I didn't have time to mention on wedding day but poof, Natalie just knew how to get them into the photos. She captured all major moments perfectly - getting thejoy, surprise, and excitement on everyone's faces. Also, there is probably no better wedding photographer you are going to find with experience having pets in your wedding or photo shoot. Family and friends were wowed in how she captured them! Dealing with Natalie is easy - she communicates frequently, uses an easy online payment and contract system, and always asks/confirms if there are questions and changes. Her turnaround was truly wonderful - had sneak peeks up the next day and our full online gallery was up in only a couple weeks! I would definitely recommend Natalie to any bride/groom or family looking to capture a moment that they know they can't live without. She'll follow through! I continue to follow her page to see the joy she will bring to other weddings and families.

Working with Natalie was a pleasure. She was very personable, especially when my husband and I weren't the most excited about taking photographs initially. She really made us both feel comfortable and at ease. We knew as soon as we met for our engagement session that we had chosen wisely. Natalie made sure we got exactly what we wanted and was very detailed that the big day was planned out and stress free. She even stayed to capture our sparkler exit, which was a huge surprise. We love our photos and are very thankful for the experience! We will definitely be contacting her for any upcoming needs and highly recommend her for any special occasion or just a great photography experience. Thank you Natalie for all you do! You are so talented and such a great soul.

Natalie is seriously a one-of-a-kind photographer. She has a great eye, a laid back and easy to work with personality, professional and swift communication before and after the wedding, extremely reasonable prices, and so much more! She has such an amazing and unique style that flowed with my wedding flawlessly. Her love for candid photos (and experience with fire spinning photos. Seriously, meeting her was destiny) is what really sold me. She captures such genuine moments, the ones that you really want to look back and remember

Gorgeous wedding photos.
Natalie photographed our Nepali Hindu ceremony and she was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. From our very first meeting I could tell that she walks the perfect balance of knowing who she is as a photographer and listening to your needs and desires. Our wedding was a bit more unusual in that had lots of vibrant colors (my saree was a vibrant red,) so it was important to me that this color palette was highlighted. Natalie delivered that and so much more and really listened to what we wanted out of our wedding pictures. Seeing her other work, she can clearly also deliver beautiful "pastel" or "softened" wedding photos. However, we wanted vibrant color for ours and her results are absolutely perfect. Our photos shimmer and glow with so much joyful color, it's just incredible. Her personality is upbeat and cheerful no matter what happens the morning of your wedding (!) and she captured every moment and gesture effortlessly. In addition, she did a great job of blending away some of our background elements (our ceremony was at our house, and therefore there were less than savory items to avoid, such as other houses, pipes, fences, etc). Natalie's photography transported us somewhere far more beautiful! She also wasn't afraid to get really creative and fun with photographing my saree and red veil in ways I wouldn't have thought of. Those photos are my absolute favorites. She can be as traditional or avant garde as you like.
Natalie made us look and feel like rock stars on one of the most important days of our lives. You won't be disappointed. She's marvelous!

Natalie was amazing at my wedding. She was patient and kind and worked with me when I almost had a meltdown from everyone not listening to me. I gave up and she didn’t even get mad at me for doing so. We just kept getting more and more photos of just my husband and myself. She made me laugh and even danced and took part in all festivities. I love her soooo much!

Natalie is the sweetest soul and just a gentle spirit. Truly a photographer and person you can connect with very easily! I cannot thank her enough for helping to make my wedding run seamlessly, while taking excellent pictures despite the heat! She has gained loyal customers, as I am sure that we will work with her for future celebrations! She was punctual, detailed, organized, thoughtful, and flexible. All the things you need for you BIG day and more!

Not only is Natalie an amazing photographer, her communication and professionalism is unmatched! I have worked with her on a few projects and she absolutely sets the bar high. She's also really down to earth and genuinely a nice person who brightens every room she enters. She would be a welcome addition to any event you're considering hiring her for.
