…THIS is why I do what I do – for you, for your story & your memories.
I’m Natalie, I’m 34 & I’m a Bedfordshire wedding photographer, also covering London as well as all over the UK & abroad for destination weddings (You can see my travel dates here). I live in a beautiful 266-year old house in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire (just north of London) with my son Danny, who’s 16, & feel blessed to wake up every day doing something I love. I’ve photographed 135+ weddings to date – each story is uniquely special & it feels such an honour to capture precious memories for my couples.
I’m here to capture the emotion of your special day; to tell your unique story in your way. In 50 years’ time when you show the grandchildren your wedding photographs, you should feel those same goosebumps you felt on the day. The smiles, the laughter, the tears – I’m here to capture it all as your day unfolds & I will smile, laugh & cry along with you. This is what I love to do & I will give you beautiful, emotive images that you will cherish forever, photographed in the most honest & natural way. My own Grandparents’ wedding photos take pride of place in my living room & every day they make me smile – I’m here to give that same gift to you & your grandchildren.
Photography has been my love since I was 7 & Father Christmas delivered me my first camera. That was 27 years ago & I have since studied Fine Art & film photography at college, graduated with honours from my photography degree in 2007, spent over 3 years as Studio Manager at ASOS.com & Figleaves.com & have now been self-employed for almost 7 years. I’ve been honoured to have my wedding photography featured on blogs including Rock My Wedding, Love My Dress, Rock ‘N’ Roll Bride & London Bride. My creative path was led to photographing weddings through my fashion photography – with clients such as Elle UK, Cosmopolitan, Vidal Sassoon & Sweaty Betty, I’ve also been fortunate enough to photograph some familiar faces including Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Kelly Holmes, Dita Von Teese & artist Antony Gormley – one of my favourites! You can see some of my fashion photography here & more of what makes me tick on my Instagram.
Take a look through my portfolio & if you feel a connection with my photography style & would like me to capture your story then get in touch to tell me about your plans. I look forward to hearing all about it!
Lots of love,
