NATURAL. MODERN. RELAXED.
"WOW! Natalie, we're overwhelmed by emotion - the detail, the creativity is absolutely stunning - so unique & simply devine. You made every emotion on the day come alive again. Thank you so much for being our photographer, it was a great pleasure working with you, & the photos... well... work of a genius - Thank you."
MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello! I'm Natalie and I'm a worldwide award-winning Photographer, Educator and Mentor, based near London and photographing wedding stories all over the UK as well as destination weddings abroad.
My background is in fashion photography with credits including Elle UK, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and I've photographed celebrities such as Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Kelly Holmes, Dita Von Teese and artist Antony Gormley (one of my favourites!).
Photography has been my passion since I was 7 & Father Christmas delivered me my first camera. That was 30 years ago & I've since studied Fine Art & film photography at college, graduated with BA Honours from my photography degree in 2007 & spent over 2 years as Studio Manager at ASOS.com.
Self-employed doing photography for over 10 years now, I feel blessed to wake up every day doing something I love! I've focused the past 5 years on building my wedding photography business to a high level and am honoured to have won many awards for my photography including the prestigious international Rangefinder Rising Stars 2019 list, as well as being included in the Junebug Best of the Best Destination Collection 2018 and 2019, and SLR Lounge noted me as a Top UK Wedding Photographer 2020.
SOME FACTS ABOUT ME
I had my son Danny when I was just 18 - he's now 20 himself and has just completed a finance apprenticeship. I'm very proud of him!
I have a BA (Hons) University Degree in Photography, graduating in 2007 with a 2:1. My final project was a twist on portraits of pets and their owners!
The stars and the Universe fascinate me! I'm about to buy a telescope so I can start doing astrophotography.
WHATEVER YOU DO, DO IT WITH PASSION; WITH ALL YOUR HEART
My creative, storytelling photography style captures the emotion of a wedding day in beautiful, honest photographs which are coveted by couples all over the world leading to a fully-booked calendar every year. Destinations such as Hawaii, Iceland, Venice, Paris, NYC, Santorini, South of France and Las Vegas are all locations I've had the delight of photographing wedding celebrations, and each of the 231 weddings I've photographed to date has been amazing! Each wedding day story is uniquely special & it feels such an honour to capture precious memories for my couples.
Everything I do, I do it with all my heart. I'm passionate about doing and being my best, both in my business and in my personal life.
My son Danny was born when I was just 18 and I've built up my business alongside being a single mum to him - yes it's been hard doing it all by myself, but it's been worth it and I can now offer him the world, literally. Travelling and adventuring is a huge love of mine - exploring far-flung exotic destinations makes my heart beat faster and together we have explored Bali, Marrakech, St Lucia, Malta and Gozo, Paris, Mallorca and most recently Las Vegas - the Grand Canyon took our breath away!
