Alternative London & Bedfordshire wedding photographer

Alternative London & Bedfordshire wedding photographer – 2017 Wedding Industry Awards

The quality of Natalie’s pictures is outstanding but more importantly to me it was her ability to be professional get the job done and seeamlessly be part of the day. In the run up to day her advice was impeccable and invaluable her attention to detail was just breathtaking making the whole process as magical as possible. I couldn’t think of a more deserving winner, she works so so hard but always with a smile on her face because she absolutely loves what’s she does.

At the end of 2016, my wedding photography was announced as Regional Finalist in the 2017 Wedding Industry Awards. I’ve been sitting on this award & the feedback for the past 6 months as I don’t like to blow my own trumpet, but then I realised that none of this is about me – it’s about my couples & the stories that I have captured for them in being their wedding photographer. Though I’m based in Bedfordshire, just north of London, I travel the length & breadth of the UK as well as further afield to capture wedding day stories for my couples & I really do love what I do, so I’m pleased to read that this shows through in my work. I’ve put together a randomly-ordered compilation for the awards feedback, for both general comments as well as reasons why each couple booked me – I’ll admit I shed a few tears reading all this!

To each & every one of my lovely wedding couples – a sincere & heartfelt THANK YOU! It’s all about you guys & thank you for letting me capture your love stories! I’m very excited to be Bedfordshire wedding photographer & alternative London wedding photographer for lots more lovely couples this year – what a wonderful job I have! Nx

General Comments (in random order)

Natalie is the most fantastic wedding photographer. She was wonderful from the moment of contact, and we felt so so lucky to have her available to shoot our wedding!!! Her passion for her job is so infectious and made us so excited for the photos. I trusted her to capture the vision we had for the day and she did it perfectly. It was like she was in my head!! You can tell that every wedding she does, she puts her heart and soul into, and it really is captured in our photos. We love her!

 

From the moment we first emailed Natalie her professionalism, expertise and passion for photography shone through. James and I had a specific want for photography with contemporary and informal style and Natalie instantly knew what we wanted. Throughout the run up to the wedding Natalie was in constant contact, making us feel at ease. On the day Natalie truly made the day, our guests had nothing but massive compliments for Natalie. On reviewing our photos they are amazing. Exceptional!

 

“Natalie is an amazing photographer. She has the ability to put you at ease calmly and confidently – we fell in love with her ideas and suggestions immediately. From the first conversation we had, right through to our wedding itself Natalie was a true professional, she knew exactly what we wanted and how to achieve it unobtrusively. The final results are speak for themselves – truely breathtaking!”

 

I can’t speak highly enough of our photographer Natalie *smiley face*. She is increadibly talented and such a lovely person. I was blown away by every aspect of our package, from all the great communication and advice leading up to the day, to the gorgeous wedding video, to the most beautiful delivery of our USB and box and of course the photos themselves. Photography was one of the hardest parts of planning our day as I was so nervous of not liking our photos but Natalie was the best decision we made!

 

Natalie was a fantastic photographer, she went above and beyond on the day to help us get the shots we wanted, she was friendly, professional and she felt like part of the family and blended in with our guests. There was no shouting orders at the guests for specific shots as we have seen at other weddings. We were so pleased with our photographs and we loved our showreel which was a surprise added bonus! Many guests commented about how professional she was & I would recommended to all my friends

 

Natalie was fabulous on the day of our wedding, she managed to be everywhere at once and captured every moment on camera. She has a lovely way with her and is able to organise people without being too pushy.

 

This lady is amazing- she did an absolutely incredible job and made it very easy to be photographed! We can’t stop looking through the photos!

 

Natalie’s communication skills are excellent, it never felt like I was bothering her and Natalie was extremely proactive in her communications, regularly keeping in contact and offering any guidance and support including other suppliers. Natalie was relaxed and easy to have around on the day while getting many images. And finally the quality of Natalie’s photography speaks for itself! Lovely lady and fantastic photographer. I would highly recommend.

 

I could not recommend a more wonderful wedding photographer for anyone’s big day. Natalie was brilliant from our very first meeting and fully understood our vision. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and showed amazing talent and creativity on the day as well as excellent organisation to help make the day run so smoothly. We absolutely love our photos and are incredibly grateful for all of her hard work in making them so perfect – and our overall experience so special.

 

It felt like we had known Natalie for ages, as if she was a friend who had come to our wedding to take our photographs. She guided us through our day to make sure we got all the best shots we could without the photographs taking over from the enjoyment of our special day. The finished results were beautiful, just what we wanted and our friends and family have commented to say they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen. Natalie’s use of light and backdrops are incredible.

 

Natalie was fantastic throughout. Before the day she met us to get to know us and discuss our plans. She was extremely helpful, made us feel very comfortable and provided great advice. On the day she was amazing. She managed to capture every detail without being at all over bearing. She was really flexible about the shots we wanted and the photographs came out better than we could have imagined!. The presentation box very special and the website made it supper easy to see and order photos!

 

On our first meeting with Natalie we were both struck with how open, warm and enthusiastic she was about wedding photography. Her drive and passion for capturing our day, and supporting us in anyway she could, was equally reassuring and infectious. My fiancée and I both came away very excited and from that point until the timely delivery of our photos, I cannot praise Natalie enough. Her natural ability and creative flair is only matched by her genuine enthusiasm and professionalism.

 

From the moment I met Natalie, I knew our wedding day was safe in her hands. Her natural, candid style was exactly what we envisioned for our garden wedding. We planned the wedding from abroad and it was such a blessing to work with a photographer who was prompt and receptive to emails. She went above and beyond, working with us for hours during an engagement shoot in London. On the day of the wedding, she arrived right and time and kept the whole day running smoothly!

 

Natalie did an incredible job of capturing our wedding day, looking back through our pictures makes us relive our special day time and time again. Natalie was very professional and listened to everything we wanted and we recieved our pictures in less than the contracted time. We were both so pleased with her service and strongly agree that we made the right decision choosing her.

 

Natalie was very attentive to our requests and was essential to our day. She was amazing to have at the bridal prep in the morning – so relaxed and a part of my day. She was discreet during the ceremony which was important to us. We walked from the registry office to the reception venue, and she captured the most amazing shots of us with some really quirky backdrops. Something that’s completely different to the ‘standard’ wedding photos.

 

Natalie is an incredibly talented and genuinely lovely person. She completely put us at ease and fit in so easily on our day and it really showed through in our pictures. So many people (my mum included) said that they are the best wedding pics they’ve ever seen! (Probably shouldn’t tell my sister though…). Professional, friendly and communicative – we couldn’t have asked for more.

 

The quality of Natalie’s pictures is outstanding but more importantly to me it was her ability to be professional get the job done and seeamlessly be part of the day. In the run up to day her advice was impeccable and invaluable her attention to detail was just breathtaking making the whole process as magical as possible. I couldn’t think of a more deserving winner, she works so so hard but always with a smile on her face Because she absolutely loves what’s she does.

 

Natalie has been fantastic throughout, from the initial booking through to the delivery of our photos. She was so organised, making sure we got all the shots we wanted on the day to giving me a call a couple of days before to make sure I was feeling calm! She worked so hard, getting round all of our guests and capturing all the little details that we had spent months planning. Everything she delivered exceeded our expectations and feel so privileged that she was able to take our pictures.

 

We can’t thank Natalie enough for capturing the beauty of our day. She did an amazing job and we are so happy that we chose her

 

Natalie was both very professional and friendly from the start, always full of positivity. She took everything in her stride even though it was pouring with rain on our wedding. She had our photos to us after only 6 weeks and they were all beautiful!! And we got far more photos than we expected which was brilliant.

 

We were so excited to have Natalie as our London wedding photographer as her website was stunning. Natalie offers such a personal service from first contact to the delivery of the final product. Natalie listened to all our requirements and worked tirelessly on the day. We are so delighted with our pictures as are our friends and family. Tears of joy were shed when we received the photos and looking back today they bring back perfect memories from every part of the day.

 

We have looked our pictures pretty much everyday since receiving them (that’s a whole lot of man hours) and every time we do, we find something magical that Natalie had captured.

 

Natalie was absolutely brilliant on the day. I hate having my photo taken and was dreading a photographer being around all day but Natalie made it all go so easily.

 

Natalie came highly recommended with an amazing reputation which she immediately exceeded. She was an absolute goldmine of good advice that she offered unobtrusively and at the best possible times. Natalie has her own photographic style and more than happily makes it fit your day to give you exactly the results you want. With Natalie you get a fashion trained photographer that is so adept that you feel ultimately comfortable and barely notice her capturing the most fantastic memories.

 

Natalie was amazing, she was brilliant with our guests, got to know our venue really well and picked out the best spots before the wedding, went the extra mile, even working later to capture one of the best photos. She is very responsive to emails, and helps with anything you might need. She thinks of things that you may not think of. She clearly is very passionate about photography and that really comes across.

 

Natalie was fantastic… very professional on the day and there was lots of communication on the lead up to the wedding which was great and reassured us both. The photographs we received were to an excellent standard and we just love them. Natalie contributed to making our day wonderful. We would definitely recommend her to others.

 

Natalie was absolutely amazing! All of our family and friends commented not only on the quality of the photos she produced following the wedding but on what a lovely, bubbly, cheerful person she was and how well she interacted with the guests. In the morning, and in the run-up to the day whenever we were feeling stressed Natalie was always on hand to provide helpful advice and a friendly smile. The engagement shoot she did for us was also fantastic as was the wonderful slideshow from the day.

 

Natalie was a dream to work with from start to finish. The fact we were asking her to travel over 300 miles for our wedding at Ardoch on the banks of Loch Lomond didn’t phase her and she even met with us in London before hand. She was in constant contact from the year before the wedding when we booked her. Checking in, seeing how things were going, giving us ideas and in the run up providing us with a very helpful questionnaire which broke down exactly which shots we would like and with whom. She was perfect.

Why they booked (in random order)

We really wanted to invest in our wedding photography and we had been through several photographers before we met Natalie. We loved her work and we got on instantly. She was genuinely interested in us, our relationship and our wedding plans and made us feel very special. Her level of organisation and attention to detail really put us at ease and we knew she would do a fantastic job.

 

I’d been following her work on social media for a few years and love her style

 

“We booked Natalie as when we saw her previous weddings we fell in love with her natural non staged photos, really photographing the little details, and managing to capture our love in a photograph, which we didn’t know was possible. The use of natural light is incredible. She was our rock on the wedding day. It’s never just a day at the office for Natalie, she’s not just a ‘photographer’ when you have her, so much more than that. Our wedding photos will be treasured for a lifetime”

 

I love Natalie’s photographic style and knew I wanted her to shoot my wedding! Her website is very update with a good range of different shots, I like that she has shot all types of weddings of different sizes, backgrounds etc I feel very lucky to have had her shoot my wedding!

 

During planning, my husband mentioned someone he went to high school with is now a wedding photographer. At first, I was skeptical — until I looked at Natalie’s website and couldn’t believe how much her style reflected what we had in mind. I arranged to meet her at my husband’s family home, which was also our reception venue for our Bedfordshire wedding, and the church where our ceremony was to be held. She was immediately full of ideas and seemed to genuinely have a vision for our photos. She made the decision easy!

 

“We booked Natalie based on her website and her lovely personality

 

Natalie’s photographs are just beautiful, they have a fashion quality that just caputures magical moments throughout the day. She photographed the wedding where we met so we had to have her even if meant changing the date of the wedding

 

Great website with shots from other weddings we loved. She was also very responsive and professional in getting back to us on our questions.

 

We fell in love with her photos on Instagram and her website

 

Natalie listened to our ideas and knew exactly how to lift them to another level. Totally on our wavelength and the pictures we now have are well beyond anything we could have imagined

 

We booked Natalie as she instantly knew what we required and her excitement and passion for our wedding was more than we could ever have hoped for. We searched several photographers but knew deep down nobody would touch Natalie’s professionalism. Reviewing the other weddings she’d photographed, you got a sense of being the there, and we didn’t know the couple! On showing guests who couldnt make our wedding our photographs they have all said it feels like there were there! If that’s not a reason to book Natalie nothing is.

 

Natalie is very friendly, open, and recommended by a friend

 

Natalie’s style immediately attracted us, with bright, creative images that matched and exceeded what we had in mind for our day. We arranged a meeting with her and we immediately knew she was the person we wanted to work with. Beyond that, she became one of the key members of the team who made our wedding day as special as it could be. I can honestly say that our day would have been less had she not been involved. Her superb photographic skill and professionalism was just the start. Her unending enthusiasm and energy gave us every reassurance that she was perfect for the role on our day.

 

Photos looked amazing on her website

 

We loved her natural, creative and whimsical photo style and heard some fantastic reviews from a colleague.

 

We loved the style of her photographs and found her website etc very professional. On meeting Natalie for an initial chat we also found her to be very very personable and friendly and felt she would be a perfect fit for our big day.

 

Natalie’s website and work was exactly the style of pictures we wanted for our big day.

 

I loved the style of her photographs and we got on really well when we met.

 

We wanted the best memories for the rest of our life and Natalie’s photography delivers exactly that.

 

I wanted a photographer that was slightly different and would take photos that are relaxed and really capture the day so that when we look at the photos in years to come you can really get a sense of the atmosphere of the day. I would definitely recommend Natalie and even book her for non-wedding photos i.e. if we have a baby.

 

I happened to come across Natalie’s work on Instagram and my first impression was “wowza, these pictures are amazing”. She had managed to not only capture peoples wedding days, but their personalities through her pictures. We met for a coffee and get to know each other and we knew straight away that she would be the perfect person for the job!

 

Great photographer and very professional.

 

I loved the style on her website and then she won me over when we met as she was so friendly and answered all my questions with ease. She was clearly very experienced and had a lot of offer.

 

We had spoken to a few photographers at various weddings fairs, but with Natalie, something just clicked. We loved her style and her portfolio, and got on so well, so we just had to book her!

 

My friend had someone else for their wedding that I loved the photos of, as she wasn’t available she put me in touch with Natalie and haven’t looked back.

 

Natalie really understood what we wanted from our day and how to capture our special moments. She was personable, friendly and professional when we met her and it was clear how much she loves the work she does.

 

I loved her style! She had a great portfolio and she didn’t do obtrusive, staged photography, it was natural, reportage which is what we wanted. We didn’t want to feel like we were performing, we could just be natural. She caught all these incredible, real moment and we will treasure her pictures forever.

Amazing work & lovely editing. Congratulations!

Some amazing Photography here and worthy of being a finalist in the awards. I do think though that there are times you should blow your own trumpet and this is one of them! Great work…

Jaw-droppingly stunning, as always. A really beautiful collection of images. That’s a great set mate, you should be really proud of them.
