Beyond Happy

"After a very exhaustive (and somewhat exhausting) search for photographers for our engagement and wedding, my fiancé and I sought out Natalie on the recommendation of a friend. It would be an understatement to say that we are BEYOND HAPPY that we did. Natalie brings an ease to her photography process - making the session comfortable and natural as opposed to sterile or staged. She is an amazing coach, and can help you develop your vision for your photographs before and during the process. Her price structure is easy and straightforward, and most importantly - she is a JOY to work with. If you are looking for a trustworthy and immeasurably talented photographer, look no further than Natalie. She offers a sound investment, a great personal presence, and a product you will absolutely LOVE."

Just Right

"Loved working with Natalie! She took the time to know me and was able to capture photos which were aligned to me. The photos she captured were brilliant and my wife and I have booked a family session for the Spring with our daughter. She does brilliant work and captures the moments just right."

Incredible

"Natalie's work is incredible, and she is incredible to work with. I was very particular when it came to picking out a photographer, and I fell in love with Natalie's work right away. She was so fun to work with during our wedding and was great at getting the whole wedding party to relax and laugh and be silly. Her candid shots are some of my favorites of the day. She got amazing and unique shots of everyone, and made our wedding day look even more beautiful that we remembered it. Our venue even had some tricky lighting, with candles and fireplaces and old antique fixtures, and Natalie rose to the challenge and got some absolutely breathtaking shots. I can't stop looking at them!"

Amazing Moments

"Natalie is an incredible photographer and we are so happy we used her for our wedding. She captured amazing moments at our wedding that everyone else would have missed without her photos, making it so fun to look back at the pictures! She was so easy to work with and such a fun photographer! Everyone was talking about how great she was the whole day! We can't wait to have her there for other life events!"

One-of-a-kind

"Where to begin?! Natalie has taken our engagement, wedding, and now family photos. These photos are hands down our most prized material possessions.

Her work is truly one-of-a-kind as she is able to capture both candid and portraits with a graceful realness unlike any other. Our photos are remarkable and I am often overcome with emotion just looking at them (even when I have stared at them a thousand times before). Each one is just as artistic and unique as the last.

Natalie as an individual is relaxed, open, and just a cool person in general. At the same time, she takes her craft very seriously. She is a true professional and if that isn't obvious with the quality her work, I am not sure what is!"

Very Lucky

"Beyond being an extremely talented and professional photographer, Natalie is a personable, kind, fun, and all-around wonderful person! Aside from having her there for a practical reason, we were just glad to have her be a part of our wedding day this October. Her enthusiasm extended throughout the day, and we felt both supported in her insights and free to be ourselves. Looking at the photos, which are downright stunning, by the way, everything appears just as we experienced it: full of joy, wonder, beauty, and happiness. Anyone who has a chance to make Natalie a part of the special moments in their life is very lucky."

Thrilled

"We hired Natalie to take family photos with our 1 week old baby. She was punctual, professional and downright amazing. She had great ideas of different pictures to capture, ideas we didn't think of ourselves, but after seeing the pictures are really happy with her suggestions. This is the 3rd time we have had Natalie take photos of important occasions and, per usual, we absolutely love the results! Natalie is a talented photographer and we are always so thrilled with her photographs! I can't imagine ever hiring anyone else!"

The Best

"Natalie is the best if you want inspired, arty photos taken by a down-to-earth, creative and lovely person. She'll make you (and your children) feel comfortable and you will love your photos! I highly recommend Natalie."

Worth Every Penny

"Natalie is amazing. My husband and I fell in love with her photography style when we looked through her images online, but when we met her in person it really sealed the deal. Natalie is so sweet and happy and calm. Those are all perfect traits to have in your photographer on such a stressful and crazy day. Natalie was never pushy or frazzled, she went with the flow. She was the perfect balance of documentary style photography, where she just observed the day as it unfolded, but didn't hesitate to jump in with some instruction and suggestions when she noticed something that would make a beautiful image. My husband and I are on the shy side and were not looking forward to being the center of attention. Although we wanted photos of all the moments of our wedding day, we didn't want to feel like we were being followed around by paparazzi with cameras in our faces at all times. Natalie was so stealthy and discreet that we hardly knew she was there. When we looked through all the amazing candid photos we couldn't believe how she seemed to be catching every moment and yet, at the wedding, we didn't feel watched. Every detail of Natalie's work is so thoughtful, from the small things she photographs like butterflies and flowers, to the care she puts in packaging the final USB of images. With Natalie you are getting professional experience, an amazing personality, and a high quality product. I HIGHLY recommend her! She is worth every penny."

good words from past clients

“Natalie is the best photographer I can ever imagine. She has an amazing style, but will listen and apply her style to our personalities. She made our day extra special. I would love to get married again – just to be able to use her again! Thank you Natalie!” -Meredith

“Natalie Champa Jennings Photography is AWESOME. Natalie is very charming and was very patient with two nervous wedding planners — she walked us through every step in the process, from signing the contract to giving her the details she needed to working out lighting and space with the vendor the day of. She directed us just enough that we felt at ease in front of the camera, but let our personalities shine through…and I barely knew she was there during the ceremony and most of the reception. And, most importantly, the photographs were beautiful, really captured the day, and I will cherish them forever. And frame them for my family!” -Kelly

“Choosing Natalie Champa Jennings Photography for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made through our wedding process. Natalie was phenomenal to work with. She was flexible for our desires of what time to start photos and even helped plan our timeline for the day as well as fulfilling the type of photos we wanted, traditional and artistic. Natalie was always professional and extremely punctual as well.” -Kim

“We contacted Natalie to arrange for family portraits at home when we learned that our beloved Golden Retriever only had a few weeks left with us. Natalie captured the personalities of our children AND our dog in a very moving, beautiful way. The images are individually stunning, but all put together they represent who we are. I’m so grateful that we reached out to Natalie for these portraits; we truly treasure the photos. Natalie arrived 10 minutes early and came equipped with some ideas and shared her thoughts on finding the best light in our home and yard. She also happily complied with the ideas that we had for the photos. She was so sweet with the kids and the dog–putting everyone at ease and making sure it was a positive, non-stressful experience for all. We had our gallery link extremely quickly, and her site was easy to use. Overall, not a single complaint. You won’t be disappointed!” -Kelsey

“We are absolutely thrilled!” -Cody

“Natalie Champa Jennings Photography is beyond excellent. Natalie is very professional, organized, and easy to work with. Her photos that not only capture the moment, but tell the story behind the event she is shooting. Our wedding pictures turned out amazing, and everyone we show them to has nothing but compliments on the photos. Can’t tell you how many times I have heard “Your photographer did an amazing job.” I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. She and her work are extraordinary.” -Jessica

“Her shots were different then any other wedding photography I’d seen. Working with her leading up to the wedding was a breeze. The day of the wedding was so relaxed and even when we were behind schedule, Natalie was super calm and relaxed. She communicated with me the entire day about what she would doing next and where I should be. When we got the pictures back (which were done really quickly!) we had an absolute ball going through them. She managed to photograph the entire day in a way that captured everyone’s personalities, the big moments and the small ones. Her photo-journalist approach created a continuity that was easy to follow, so even the friends and family who couldn’t attend the wedding felt the energy of the day. We would definitely recommend Natalie Champa Jennings Photography to everyone!” -Julie

“From beginning to end, this is a photographer who is a pleasure to work with. Natalie navigates the event with ease and provides an amazing product. Brides and grooms will not be disappointed.” -Sara

“Natalie was the epitome of what I wanted in a photographer. She met with us in advance to go over our vision and her style, she was extremely professional in her presentation of past work and pricing and if you want responsiveness Natalie is your woman!! She would respond to my requests immediately (even when she was on vacation). She was punctual the day of the wedding and we barely even knew she was around which I wanted since my husband freezes up in front of a camera. ;) The best part is we cannot get enough of our photos, she had a link to our images sent to us while we were still on our honeymoon and our CD was soon to follow in a beautiful case to complete her artistic presentation. Our photos are breathtaking and we cannot thank Natalie enough for everything she did to capture our wedding day. I would highly recommend her, in fact she is shooting my best friend’s wedding in October.” -Danielle

“We’ve worked with Natalie for several major events in our family, and she always does a phenomenal job. She has a great eye for detail and is able to pull out unique shots even from the most everyday sorts of settings. I’ve found that Natalie is a natural at putting her clients at ease, which I really value in a photographer. We plan to work with Natalie for any photo opportunities we come by in the future, and I’d very highly recommend her!” -Alexis

“Natalie was awesome. She was so easy to work with for our family shoot with our 5 month old. She took so many photos and captured our daughter perfectly. Her turn around was amazing, she gave us our gallery online in one week! She was also very affordable. We will be using her again soon!” -Abby

“Natalie has a beautiful eye. She captured candid and artistic moments throughout our entire wedding day without being invasive or pushy. She was a joy to work with and I will recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!! Even my husband, who does not like getting his picture taken, was wowed by Natalie. Thank you!” -Patti

“Natalie did an INCREDIBLE job photographing our wedding! She is fun to have tagging along all day to capture every moment, and her style is really one-of-a-kind.” -Jennifer
