AboutMe

Hello!

My name is Natalie and welcome to my website. I’m a Minneapolis-based portrait & wedding photographer.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse the site and check out some of the things I’ve been working on lately.

My approach:

I strive for a mix of classic and candid photos. My style centers around my love for storytelling, only using photographs instead of words. You’ll find a mix of candids, formals, portraits, and details in my wedding stories & family collections.

You need candids. Why?

Because candids are the simple little moments that allow a personality to show. Like the weird expressions and chuckles people make right after a family formal is snapped…that’s the photo you’ll end up framing and hanging on the wall.

A full day:

Here’s a slide show sample of a gorgeous rustic wedding here in Minnesota. And if you enjoyed that one, here’s a pretty rad location in Wisconsin to check out.

It’s an investment.

Photography is totally an investment. I could ramble on about print quality, cameras I use, archival paper, and heirloom albums, but it really just means this: The photo collection you receive after your session with me will be beautiful and high quality so your prints and albums will be enjoyed by people for years, even generations.

Plus, seriously, you need to get some nice pictures on your walls, fridge, and desk instead of letting gorgeous photos die slowly on a hard drive that will one day no longer work anyway. For more information on booking and pricing use the contact form in the menu above.

I teach a photo business course at the Minneapolis Photo Center. It was inspired by my own experiences as I’ve built my business and the desire to help others achieve that dream. I believe we all have something a little different and unique to offer the photo world & that building a strong community of photographers is the way to go.

One-on-one workshops are also starting to fill my calendar. I offer two options: business building & workflow. If you’re a photographer interested in learning more, send me a note!

I also am the founder of A Face Project. A Face Project is a quarterly fine art magazine and online journal. It was created in order to honor the art of storytelling, as well as offer a place for people to visit that is motivational, entertaining, educational, and inspirational. Anyone can participate and you can learn all about it at www.afaceproject.com

And this is me and my dog, Islay, right after I cut off my dreadlocks this spring. I live with her, my husband Paul, and two crazy rescue cats, Coffee & Scotch.
