Where do I start to describe the heavenly Natalie J? Well, before we even get to the photography (which is magical, creative, romantic and quite simply divine), I’d like first to reassure anyone reading this that Natalie is just a lovely and very agreeable human. She’s warm, friendly, with just the right mix of ‘calming’ and ‘making things happen.’ She fits right into your day, another treasured and much-loved guest. At the moment, due to COVID restrictions, guest lists are of course very tight, but I can assure you that you absolutely won’t regret having Natalie at your wedding. She gives her full attention to what she’s doing and makes sure to capture every little detail of your day, from ones you considered intentionally (like favours and bridal shoes) to ones that happen naturally (all the wonderful emotions and expressions of the day). I had guests tell me that her presence and energy was noticeably positive and uplifting, and others said they wish they’d hired Natalie for their own big day.
Natalie’s work is exquisite. She superbly captures the essence of your day – all the feelings, all the emotions, exactly what makes your day YOU. And it’s wonderful to see, when it’s your own set of photos staring back at you… these will become truly treasured memories for the rest of your lives together, and for your children, and for your grandchildren. Wonderful. She works fast and brilliantly, not missing a single shot, which is a miracle in and of itself. The post-editing is perfect and your photos arrive to you as an absolutely gorgeous dream, like you’re seeing your own wedding in Vogue or Elle. Yes, really! Even if you have a very small, intimate wedding at a registry office like we did, due to COVID restrictions. The photos are really that special. The funny thing is that we almost didn't get a photographer because we were only doing 'the legal bit' this year, at a registry office, and with our 'real' wedding to come next year if restrictions allow. However we are SO glad we had Natalie as our photographer for this day, which was actually a very beautiful, intimate, and personal day for us, and extremely meaningful.
Natalie was also a great communicator, with super swift turnaround of our photos. She is also very experienced and knows how to competently and professionally deal with all situations, all weather, all lighting, all personalities, etc. It’s details like this that make you really glad that you chose to work with someone and both my new husband and I are very glad that we had Natalie shoot our wedding. Thank you Natalie!
