As your wedding photographer, you can expect me to help you feel cared for and prepared for your wedding day. I want you to feel comfy + happy and I will do anything to help us get there! You can also expect me to capture the most MAGICAL photos of your wedding day that are earthy, warm, and adventurous. With these photos, you will be able to look back at your wedding day years down the line and relive the best day of your life all over again.
Lastly, I will all my happy, exciting, and enthusiastic energy to your wedding day. I love becoming friends with my couple and getting to know you beyond the wedding day. Becoming close to my couples means a lot to me and there are some that I have even hung out with after the wedding day! Overall, I want to be there for you fully and help capture the most incredible day of your life.
I am proud to say that I deliver wedding sneak peeks within 24 hours of the wedding day! Then, I deliver my full wedding albums within 8-10 weeks - which is pretty fast compared to others in the industry ;)
I make the complete photo timeline for you based on your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception times. I also really prioritize being prepared for the wedding day, so I will send you a questionnaire prior to the wedding day to learn about what will make your day special. I also send over Google Doc template where we can complete all vendor, family, and bridal party lists, that way I can know everyone’s names and their relation to you. We will feel super prepared for group photos. Some quickness + efficiency always helps ;)
I check my email every day and respond to everyone within 24-48 hours. If I’m on vacation, I post a reminder on socials or let my couples know via email!
On your wedding day, I will scope out all the BEST spots for photos. I also looove some golden hour photos and will find the best spot for this a little later in the day. I am also happy to suggest a bunch of locations for engagement sessions.
I provide all my wedding couples with a full Wedding Day Guide that walks you from the beginning of the day to the end. It includes a bunch of tips and tricks to help you feel prepared for your day. I also provide a Wedding Day Checklist that can help you stay on track with wedding planning that doesn’t have to do with photography.
Trust me, you don’t have to worry about practicing any poses ahead of time or researching Pinterest for hours. I’ve totally got you. I have a bunch of prompts that I love using with couples to make you feel super happy and stress-free. Kinda feels like you’re just hanging out and having fun with your boo while I’m capturing it all :)
In my mind, wedding albums are like romance books - they have a beginning, a middle and a fairytale ending. As you flip through each page, the story continues to build. New characters are introduced, you see them fall in love, get married, cry tears of happiness, share tons of laughter and celebrate the rest of their lives with the people closest to them. Wedding albums leave your heart feeling full.
This is why I think that getting an album is one of the best decisions you could ever make when it comes to your wedding memories.
My goal is to capture real moments + real emotion. I like to give lots of direction in order to make my couples feel super comfortable. This helps us get fun, romantic, natural and “in the moment” shots that will be lasting memories forever!! I am super giggly and outgoing, so I like to think that my sessions feel more like a hangout with friends, rather than something nervewracking :) I tend to get a mix of photos - fun, romantic, giggly, arsty, “vogue-ish”, candid. I’ll pretty much be getting a bunch of photos of you and your boo looking cute AF.
How would you describe your photography style?
YES! I started traveling for photography a couple of years ago and it has been soooo amazing. I’ve been to California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Utah so far. I have some weddings for 2022 in California, Arizona and Puerto Rico. SO STOKED and SO DOWN to travel anywhere!!
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS/ENGAGEMENTS/ELOPEMENTS?
I started photography about 4 years ago! I was going to music school and started booking headshot sessions with musicians on campus. People started to like my work and then that summer, someone asked me to photograph their wedding. After shooting my first wedding I was completely OBSESSED with couple’s photography. I watched YouTube videos until 3am every night to learn more about it and I would DM so many photographers asking if I could assist or shoot for them. One thing led to the next, and now I am here as a professional wedding photographer with my own business! BEST JOB EVER. Wouldn’t trade it for the world.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING PHOTOGRAPHY + HOW DID YOU START?
I use Lightroom to edit my images with my own presets. I use photoshop sometimes, if needed (for things like removing distracting objects from the background etc). I don’t really do any facial or skin retouching unless it is specifically requested as an additional package. I try my best to edit my images in a way that fully represents the day and of course in a way that makes them look magical!!!
HOW DO YOU EDIT YOUR IMAGES?
"Natalia came along and made the whole experience feel like a walk in the park. She captured photos that I felt were so genuine, it really helped commemorate such an important milestone in my life. All the smiles were very real too, since Natalia has such a sweet personality and infectious sense of humor that I didn’t even have to “fake laugh”! Thank you for helping me see myself in a new light and boosting my confidence— I can definitely see myself booking again in the future."
"I don’t even know where to begin with Natalia. One word comes to mind… INCREDIBLE! From our engagement shoot pictures to our wedding day. Everything was amazing and she was insanely professional and upbeat! She knew exactly what we were looking for and brought that vision to life. I’ve already recommended her to several friends getting married in the future and I would do it 100 times over again! The pictures were edited and sent back quickly and they exceeded all my wildest dreams. Do yourself a favor and put your trust in her vision because she will absolutely get it right!"
