Let me see your ring, how did they propose?
You’ve spent months planning every little detail to Pinterest perfection. Everything is coming together, but in twenty-four short hours your wedding day will come and go. It will be a whirlwind of emotions and the two of you getting pulled in all different directions. Do you even remember if those DIY table decorations you worked so hard on got put out?
That’s where I can help!
I’m Natalie (she/her/hers), and I’m the gal with the degree in photography and over 12 years of experience photographing Michigan weddings, engagements, and elopements for couples that appreciate the smaller pieces that make up the larger picture. John Wooden nailed it when he said, “It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” All those bits and pieces and moving parts make up your whole wedding day, so why not remember them? Imagine 10 years from now, walking through your home and you stop to glance at one of your wedding photos on the wall. You feel the same joy you felt on your wedding day rush through you at the sight of that image. That raw emotion is what I live for and I am here to capture it for you.
What’s Up With the Rhino?
Yeah, I know it’s a weird animal to be in love with, but they are just sooo cute! When I started to work on the redesign of my logo, I knew I wanted something that would be very true to who I am. For years they have been my favorite animal, when I researched their meaning and symbolism, I discovered the rhino was a perfect fit for me. The message a rhino brings is to stop and give thanks to the countless miracles occurring in every moment of your life. Dude, that’s exactly what I do as a photographer! How perfect!
An Ally to All
Whether you and your partner are heterosexual, LGBTQ+, BIPOC, etc…I want all couples to feel represented and welcomed here. You are valid, loved, and appreciated, and your love deserves to be told in it’s own beautiful imagery. There have been stories all over the wedding industry of vendors turning away couples because of who they are or who they fell in love with. That truly breaks my heart. You will not encounter that with me, that is my promise with you.
5 Things I Love Besides Weddings
- Coffee. All kinds of ways, just not black. Hot, cold, frozen, ice cream, flavored, whipped…bring it on!
- Everything DIY! I love working with my hands to make something creative. If I had to choose a favorite though, it would be crocheting.
- My planner, seriously I live and die by that thing. If you’re in the market for a fully customizable planner, I HIGHLY suggest checking out Plum Paper.
- Crime TV, the ID channel was created just for me!
- Gardening, ever since I bought my house I have been on a mission to have a garden like you see in magazines. It’s not there yet, but it’s coming along.
Rings are my favorite wedding detail. I will spend about 10-15 minutes photographing just them alone.
