About Natalie

 

Life to me is pure visual poetry.

 

I love life and love love love a good love story.

Since picking up my first camera in the late 90’s I am blessed to have pursued a wonderful career in something I am so passionate about. Photography has journeyed me to breathtaking places and led me to meet a plethora of fantastic humans. With a background in photojournalism and fine art I approach each wedding with a unique and attentive aptitude to capture the beautiful flow of your magic day.

When I am not creating photography you can find me hanging out with my husband and two adorable daughters or surfing the waves of this beautiful area I am lucky enough to call home.

Enough about me.

Lets capture your story x
