Hey y'all. I'm so excited you're considering me to tag along on your adventure, to be there and capture the memories you're making and to help make more!
I know choosing a photographer is hard. You want someone that makes you feel comfortable and confident so that you can truly be yourself around them. You want someone whose style matches yours and most importantly you want someone that makes you feel something when you see your images. So that when you see your images you remember how you felt when you took them, the love, the laughter, the confidence and emotion.
I'm here as your photographer, but I want to be here as your friend as well. So let me take this time to introduce myself so that we can hopefully be life-long adventure buddies!
I'm Natalie. I'm a Libra and a bonafide crazy animal person. I don't discriminate, I love ALL animals. EXCEPT butterflies. I'm terrified of them. We have two cats and a dog and I'm working on convincing my husband we need a small farm as well. I like to think of myself as funny, but my humor is mainly puns and sarcasm.
I love traveling, and trying new things. I'm always up for a spur of the moment picnic or a thoroughly planned road trip. I'm here for all things weird and off the beaten path. I once drove to North Dakota just to see a turtle made out of hub caps. Road trips are my joy. It's a dream of mine to be able to build a roadside attraction. I've been obsessed with them since I was a kid. I guess that's why Route 66 was one of my all time favorite trips I've taken so far. My bucket list also includes going to every national park. Can you guess that all my goals in life are travel related? The Bad Lands is my current fave.
I swear like a sailor (sorry not sorry), but know how to turn it off when I need to. I'm obsessed with rom coms and could watch Troop Beverly Hills everyday for the rest of my life. Early Nic Cage and Sandra Bullock movies are bae. Oh, and so is anything Mary Kate and Ashley. In fact my all time favorite love quote comes from Mary Kate and Ashley's first film, it takes two.
I'm married to my best friend, Nate (yes, I know. Natalie and Nate, how cutesy). We got married at a YMCA camp in Cascade, ID. Literally one of my all time favorite venues. If you want to know more just ask! I love to plan and would be honored to help you with anything you need! I'm full of tips and tricks and I'm a complete open book! Nate is also a licensed officiant, and loves getting to create a speech that helps capture your unique love story.
Now I'm sick of all this I, me, my talk. I'd much rather talk about you! Fill out my contact form and we can start planning whatever your heart desires.
"Natalie, you have no idea how much we love our session! We were just talking about you over our dinner and we both agreed it was the most fun and enjoyable session we ever had!" - Jazmin
"My friend Natalie captured these pictures of my beloved wife and I. I will hold onto these pictures for the rest of my life." - Levi
"NATALIE!!!!! You have outdone yourself! Those pictures are absolutely stunning! I feel like they are just so intimate and sweet! Steve and I are such a fun, playful, and intimate couple, and I feel like you REALLY captured that part of us!! Those pictures will definitely be cherished forever!" - Emma & Steve
"I just adore these pictures from our wedding. Natalie captured our relationship so perfectly. As a side note I sprained my ankle BAD 2 days before the ceremony so we had to document and had some good laughs over it. I cannot emphasize enough how much we loved working with Natalie. Over the moon with how these turned out. Thank you again Friend. I'm so bummed that we now live far away. I love that your pictures are unique and not the same thing you see over and over again, even the editing is uniquely you. I guess we will just have to plan around when we are all visiting." - Kylie
AKA: Holder of things/ my husband.
This man is my husband, assistant, accountant and my best friend. He is one of my biggest supporters, and is the nicest person anyone will ever meet. He loves all things star wars, star trek and sci-fi in general. Catch him tearing up to every Pixar movie with me or hiking with our pupper.
Oh and, Nate is a licensed officiant from the Universal Life Church and specializes in non-religious ceremonies.
AKA: Tazzy, Princess Penelope and Monster
Taz is a calico cat who has thumbs. She was rescued from a kitty-mill.
Taz chose Natalie, when Natalie was looking to adopt her first cat. Taz wouldn't let Natalie put her down once she held her, and would cry every time Natalie put her down. Tazzy is very food motivated and loves corn on the cob.
AKA: Mulder boulder, little man, and bubba
Mulder is a medium haired black cat. Contrary to popular belief blacks cats are not bad luck. Mulder is named after the X-FIles, but unfortunately he does not live up to his namesake. Instead of hunting aliens, Mulder prefers mouse toys. Mulder is a mind reader and knows when you need an extra cuddle.
AKA: Bean, Poop Machine and Pumpernickel
JoJo is a pit whippet mix and is actually Nate's dog. However JoJo has proven her loyalty is actually with her new mom. Nate adopted JoJo when she was three years old. JoJo likes to eat grass and holds the world record of most poops taken in a day. A record she is very proud of.
