that become your nostalgia

these are the moments

My love for old romantic comedies and home movies puts nostalgic feelings at the forefront of Photography With Natalie. I document all weddings with a high definition camera but also on camcorders and film cameras as memories are best remembered authentically; there is just something about those old cameras that bring those warm feelings out in us. Understanding that I am a part of your wedding day with a documentarian approach allows for genuine photos & videos; your spouses gentle touches, your moms hands, your dads laugh and your brothers tears. Like a fly on the wall but also the heart on your sleeve. I notice the big moments and appreciate the small ones even more. I see your family as my own and I am there, in the end, to deliver your memories.

nos·tal·gia  ·  /nəˈstaljə/




It was always beyond snapping a photo or recording a few seconds of a video; for me it was putting the memories together in an album, stringing together video clips and putting them to music. Whether it was a montage for my best friends birthday, or a vlog recapping my boyfriend (now fiancé) and I moving to California in our early twenties or filling the pages of an album I picked up from goodwill with film photos over the last year. Preserving memories and gifting them to loved ones is my love language. I cannot think of a better way to show love, gratitude and connection than through the gift of memories; framing photos, writing poems, scrapbooking special years. One Christmas my aunt said to me, “you should do this for a living,” after I showed my family a 30-minute video I compiled of our extended family vacation. In the moment, I thought, “ I wish!!” and now, here we are. Being able to not only document your wedding day but to return a full length video or gallery of intentional and documentary photos is something I never realized I could be so blessed to do. It just happened; effortlessly, seamlessly like God always intended this for me.

I have always been enamored with love; fictional stories like Jack & Rose, Harry & Sally, Ross & Rachel and the love I grew up witnessing between my parents and my grandparents and now the love I have been lucky enough to call my own. These stories create the perfect combination of home movie nostalgia and romantic comedy charm that keeps me constantly inspired to document your love.

With Love,



 I cannot rave more about Natalie! She was our videographer for our wedding and seriously made the most beautiful and perfect video to commemorate our day. Not only is she the most talented creator, but the sweetest human. A video and pictures truly are the only thing you have after wedding day to relive your special day - I am SO grateful we were able to use Natalie because she absolutely nailed our vision of what we wanted our video to be. Family centered, nostalgic, and intimate details. I watch our wedding video and sob every single time on what feels like a weekly basis. If you are on the fence about booking a videographer, you need to talk to Natalie! Her discovery consult helped give us so much clarity and I’m so grateful we did it. Thank you so much Natalie.

Natalie was absolutely amazing! We could not thank her enough for capturing our day. She was so encouraging leading up to our day, continued to hype us up during the day and had AMAZING communication throughout the whole process.Both of us got so emotional rewatching the video. Natalie had captured details we both had missed or forgotten. She captured the moments we will cherish forever. But most importantly, she absolutely captured our love story. Natalie was the best decision we made when planning our day! 


Oh my gosh. What can I say about Natalie except I have never had a better experience in front of the camera. I did a boudoir session with her, which is TOTALLY out of my comfort zone & she made me feel SO SEXY and confident in my own skin. She really set the tone for the session with helpful preparation guides and tips. During the session, she was just so kind and gentle in such a vulnerable situation and made feel so good. Every single photo in my gallery is ridiculously unreal - she is a true talent.


Natalie is beyond amazing! We could not have picked a better photographer to capture our special day! We were beyond lucky to have chosen her as our wedding photographer. She made everything so easy and captured every fun memory we were looking for. She really gets the vibe of the wedding (family, friends, & us) and knows how to capture it. She works so well with a big group of people & my family can be a lot but we got every photo we wanted. Our grandparents are a huge part of our life and she got the most amazing pictures of them to have for a lifetime. We are in love with our dance floor pictures that are so natural and relaxed. We had 3 big canvases made above our bed of our wedding photos because we loved them so much!
