Full Description
I have been surrounded by wonderful images all my life with my parents running their own photographic studios and my dad teaching me from a young age. Photography is my life, it’s in my blood, there is no denying it! I love weddings and making you the bride and groom feel relaxed, have fun and bring out the best in you. There is nothing more rewarding than capturing the love you have for one another and your friends and family and this is always so evident on your wedding day. I’m just lucky to be the one there, in the middle of it all telling the story of your day and capturing these beautiful moments in a beautiful way. I can’t wait to tell your Story of Love. Natalie X

Highly Recommended
Peebles Hydro have worked many times with Natalie and Story of Love is one of our recommended wedding suppliers. Natalie is very familiar with our venue, and therefore knows all our hidden gems. This results in unique and stunning wedding photographs, many of which we use in our marketing collateral. It is important to us that we use local suppliers, and that we associate ourselves with business that provide a high quality service. It is always a pleasure working with Natalie, and we would thoroughly recommend her as your wedding photographer.

Struggling to find words to use
“Struggling to find words to use to describe just how amazing Natalie's photos of our wedding day is. We honestly cannot be happier with them, they are absolutely perfect! They bring the biggest smiles to our faces every time we look at them, instantly taking us back to the best day of our lives and we absolutely love the slideshow she made with background music for viewing them for the first time. So many unbelievable pictures of the entire day that we will cherish forever. From a personal point of view, being a guy, I hate getting pictures taken of me, but I can honestly say there was not a single moment where I felt awkward or uncomfortable. Natalie made having pictures taken fun! Felt totally at ease the entire day. So many natural pictures taken which we love, most of the time we didn't even see her taking any of them! To top it all off, and other reviews have also said the same, she really is one of the nicest, friendliest people you can meet. Nobody could say a bad word about her. Thank you so much Natalie once again for everything! We cannot recommend you highly enough, everything was just unbelievable!! Cheers The Darlings x”

My Number 1!
Natalie has been the wedding photographer on numerous occasions now where i have been the florist and we have also done a collaboration photo shoot together. Every time i see the end resultsi am just truly blown away. She manages to capture every fine little detail of the couples day. Natalies work just always seems to have the edge and always stands out for me from other photographers. Natalie is very professional and the most friendliest, caring and genuine person i have ever met. The passion for her work shows in every single image. My Number 1!

Simply stunning, artistic and unique!
A huge thank you to Natalie for being so fantastic to work with on our wedding day. I can't emphasise enough how comfortable Natalie makes you feel in front of the camera. Not only is she great to work with, but she is also a lovely person! So many of our guests commented on how friendly she was. She made sure that everything ran smoothly and the whole experience was so enjoyable. We are completely blown away by the impressive quality of her photographs! There are so many gorgeous photos, it's impossible to pick a favourite! We are totally amazed by the artistic photos captured by Natalie that almost look like paintings. She has such a keen eye for those candid and spontaneous moments throughout the day that really captured the emotions of us and our guests in a documentary style. Looking at our photos has been like reading the story of our wedding day, which cleverly represents the name of her photography business. I know you must hear this a lot Natalie, but you really felt like a friend to Ross and I on our wedding day. You are so personable and easy to be around. Thanks again for being such a wonderful photographer. ❤ Love, Fiona & Ross xx

Simply the best
When choosing a photographer it’s so important to remember that this person is going to be spending most of your wedding day with you and your family, Natalie is the perfect choice she has the most lovely bubbly personality to make sure everyone is laughing and enjoying themselves which then allows her to capture the most beautiful REAL moments on a wedding day. Natalie has the ability to see a moments before they even happen and is always on hand to capture it in such a natural way. Nothing is ever staged and uncomfortable !! Natalie genuinely is an artistic genius when it comes to a camera and what makes it even better is that She is such a lovely person inside and out.
