You don't want just another vendor at your wedding; you want a timeless, heavenly presence who captures the small moments you've dreamed of forever. As a Tennessee-based destination wedding + elopement photographer, a friend, and a fellow human being, my goal is to provide you with a warm and welcoming experience that brings out the best in you. Right at the get-go, I fully put myself out there to build a trustworthy relationship with you, just as you're doing with me.
Capturing your dream destination with the
one you dearly love most
With 3 years of experience in this industry, my mission is to be a calming presence, so you can be FULLY present on one of the fastest, most memorable days of your life. When I become your photographer, I also become your hype woman, lending hand, fellow traveler, gift giver, and most importantly, a dear friend by the end of it. Just like your timeless photos, our relationship is one you can always rely on.
ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
be completely present
Pre-arrival routine: I grab my strawberry acai, triple check my batteries, pack my equipment, and have a pre-wedding jam sesh in the car (or plane) as I head to YOUR DAY!!!
I'll arrive 20 minutes prior to my coverage start time to park, meet the other vendors, set up my equipment, and check-in with YOU. Usually, I'll start with your detail shots (dress, getting ready, etc.) then let's POP THE CHAMPAGNE!
From every hug shared to the dreamy encounters lasting seconds, I'll be there to ensure they land in your wedding book. Throughout the day, I'll be a calming presence that prompts everyone to remain on time and be present in these moments. By the end of the day, my camera will hold authentic, warm, and dreamy photos, with day-of polaroids in your hands.
Manifest this: You're on your way to your honeymoon, your phone dings, and sneak peaks from your intimate day have ARRIVED. You're looking through them with emotion in your eyes, rewinding to the previous day and the INCREDIBLE time you had with your people. 3-4 weeks later, you're scrolling through your final gallery, picking out favorites for your customized photo album and prints in your home.

I don't have enough words to describe our experience with Natalie. She was truly so helpful throughout the whole process. Ample communication, a meeting early to get to know each other, and the best photo hype woman you could ever ask for. She creates real art and has amazing talent when it comes to both personality and the genuine joy she exudes. She gets the photos edited to perfection and back to you so quickly. I now feel like I have a friend in Natalie!
Natalie did an incredible job with our engagement shoot. She made us feel so comfortable, and we had so much fun with her. I was worried about not knowing what to do for poses/feeling awkward, but she gave us great direction and adjusted us to make sure the pictures turned out beautifully. She did such a great job, my fiancé and I have been raving about her since. 10/10 recommend.
We absolutely LOVED working with Natalie!! She made our experience super painless and fun :) All of the photos felt so natural and truly captured our personalities. She was totally down for our crazy ideas and everything turned out even better than we could have ever expected!
Natalie, Tell Me What's NEXT
1. Fill out my inquiry form and share all the details for your vision. I'll respond within 48 hours with all the information you need, with an option to set up a discovery call.
2. Two options: We can set up a discovery call to get to know one another or if you're READYYY, book your wedding day by signing the contract and paying a non-refundable deposit.
3. IT'S OFFICIAL! We'll set up our first consultation to discuss the process and all the fun things, and I'll send over my ultimate wedding guide. We'll also set a date for your complimentary engagement session.
4. Before the wedding, I'll send you two longer questionnaires for you and your partner to fill out about your day! Turn it into a date night, order some take-out, and fill these out.

let's do the dang thing
Warm, dreamy, and authentic, with creamy skin tones.
Candid moments (like this background photo ;) haha) of you, your partner, your people, and your day you wouldn't think could be captured. Those are the images that will land in your gallery.
If this is your vision, let's be friends!
How would you describe your style?
for my wedding packages (local + destination), yes! Since they are going to be 8-10 hour days, I include it in your package so that all angles of your day are captured.
However, I do not include them in elopement packages since these are more intimate. however, please mention to me if you'd like one and we can make it work!
Is a 2nd shooter included in your packages?
Do you travel across the United States? Internationally?
How much do you charge for travel?
Absolutely! Since every couple is different, I am happy to create a package that fits your photography checklist + budget for your big day. read more about customized wedding packages on this page under "Photography packages."
Can I customize my wedding package?
I deliver all my photos through an online gallery called pic-time. You can share these galleries with family + friends, and all photos can be downloaded directly from the gallery.
How will I receive my photos?
How long until my gallery is delivered?
Do you offer planning, location, and outfit guidance?
Should I do an engagement session?
I have trouble being in front of the camera and feeling awkward. Can I still do a session?
Do you offer film for weddings?
