“She truly is the absolute best and I would 1000% recommend her. Natalie has all of the things you need and could ever want from your wedding photographer. Not only is she super organized and prepared, but she is calm and comforting in a way that makes you feel at ease on your big day and makes getting photographed a comfortable and fun experience. She also is perfectly direct which helped make sure our family and friends were in the right places at the right time to make the photos turn out wonderfully.”

“Natalie took our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we could not be happier, as every photo was absolutely amazing and told a story throughout the engagement session and wedding. I will always look back on these photos with the biggest smile on my face, because they are simply beautiful. You can tell that she is painstakingly meticulous in curating the perfect gallery for you and that she loves her couples. If you're thinking of hiring Natalie for your wedding, do not hesitate. She was an absolute dream to work with and I hope we can work together in the future!”

“Natalie was a delight to work with!! She is so talented and captured our BIG day beautifully (even when we were met with some unexpected rain). When I was first searching for a photographer, I came across Natalie's work and immediately fell in love with her style. She made us feel so comfortable and welcomed both of our personalities. She was easy to work with, flexible with our schedules, and always kept it fun! I still cannot believe how amazing our photos turned out. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an amazing photographer!!”

During our call, I want to hear all of the details of your love story! From where you met to your favorite date night activity, each glance I get into the windows of your bond will form a foundation of trust and understanding between us. 

02. Tell me more

2 / 4

Once we’ve shared and aligned our visions, I’ll send a proposal and contract your way to secure your date. Then the anticipation begins! We’ll keep in contact to establish a complete understanding of your event and what means most to you. A few months from the wedding you’ll receive a questionnaire and we’ll iron out the timeline for a day that runs smoother than silk.

03. Oh, the anticipation!

3 / 4

When the day finally arrives (it will come faster than you think!), all I ask is that you delight in the moment with each other. I’ll take the role as your biggest advocate and supporter throughout the day to make sure your job — enjoying the day! — is as easy as loving each other. And when you receive your final gallery, you’ll relive each meaningful moment for years to come.

04. Delight in the moment

Northern California Wedding Photographer FAQs

Still wondering about working with me?

I’m based in the Bay Area, and you can catch me across Northern California from Carmel and Sacramento to Napa Valley.

With each capture, I carefully consider composition using natural lighting to its full and beautiful potential. And with the knowledge that your comfort and presence will shine through in every image, I take the time to gently direct you (rather than stiffly pose you), so each moment feels grounded and true to yourself.

So glad you asked! Once you’ve viewed my work, connect with me through the inquiry form. Then we can set up a call (if your date is available) to learn about your vision and talk details.
