Natalie is simply a gem. She worked with us to create a set of engagement photos that were gorgeous, unique, romantic and fun. On the day of our wedding Natalie was there early and bounced between locations effortlessly, capturing moments we didn't even know would be important. She blended in seamlessly at the wedding, floating around and capturing the best mix of candid photos and gathered group shots. Our family raved about her + we cannot say enough about how enjoyable she was to work with from start to finish. After our wedding she got our photos back to us super quickly and even gave us a few small, precious photo gifts that truly went above and beyond what we expected from her. She has an incredible amount of talent for her age, and paired with her sweet, kind personality - we know she's going to go far! Just glad we found her now, we plan to use her for all of our family photos in the future!

Aside from selecting a groom, choosing Natalie as our photographer/videographer was easily the *best* decision I made for my wedding! It took place in Joshua Tree, which is gorgeous but can be challenging with weather, light and terrain. Natalie navigated every moment with grace, and was wonderfully accommodating along the way. Coordinating and planning with her leading up to the big day was a breeze, she's a total professional and made the process easy. During the event she was a delightful presence, somehow covering everything organically and without interrupting the flow. Best of all, the final photos and footage are just SPECTACULAR. Breathtaking, natural, flattering and totally authentic, her images make the experience look every bit as dreamy and magical as it felt! I can't recommend her highly enough, and would hire her again in a heartbeat.

i’d love to meet you & hear more about your wedding plans. I know they are going to be as amazing as you are!
