Specialty: Wedding Photojournalism
When it matters, call Natalie.
Let her capture all the special moments of your day.
"It's not what you look at that matters; it's what you see." - Henry David Thoreau
History: Established in 2005
For Natalie, photographing weddings is a sacred space where you, as a stranger, are invited into a private circle of family and friends for this celebrated occasion. She treats these happenings with respect and honors them in the images she captures. She celebrates with you, smiling and laughing, and sometimes crying too at all the special moments... catching those special images all day long.
Whether it is a playful gesture from a groom to his bride, a heartfelt moment between a bride and her father, or the excitement of it all on a flower girl's face, she sees it. She sees all of it, every detail and doesn't miss it.
She thinks she should have been doing this all along and feels blessed that her work is really like play time. She loves looking for new angles, new slants of light, new eyes to see the world around her. With each new wedding season, Natalie is energized by love - of course, for her photography, but also for the bride and groom, and for their "happily ever after."
Meet the Business Owner: Natalie Marionneaux
Natalie has a natural eye. Her joy of photography began when she was a youngster photographing flowers in her backyard of her hometown of Rosedale, Louisiana. What she likes about photography is being able to capture a moment in time and hold on to it, revisit it and feel that moment again.
As photographer for high school yearbook (back in 1985), her parents got her a Canon T50. Then with a B.A. in Journalism from Louisiana Tech University, Natalie traveled and worked in Mexico and Guatemala for Habitat for Humanity. Her Canon T50 went with her everywhere. She has showcased her travel photos, mostly black and white with an architectural focus, in various shows in Houston and Chicago.
Natalie is a member of WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Professionals International) and PPA (Professional Photographers of America).
Natalie lives in Chicago with her two cats Luna and Okie.

My husband and I had the opportunity to work with Natalie in September of 2008. We hired her for our wedding. She was a pleasure to work with and always exhibited professionalism. Her pictures were fabulous and truly told the story of our memorable wedding day. she was on time and worked the crowd well. We absolutley love our pictures. Post Wedding, she was great in following up with us to compile our wedding album. If it weren't for her, it might have been years before my husband and I sat down to compile. We trusted her and were very pleased with the results. we would highly reccomend her for your wedding!Sent on 02/08/2010

It is such a joy to work with a professional. When I am working hard and the photographer is working harder... I am motivated. And Natalie makes all of this happen as she catches the elegant realities of the Moment. She is so worthy of your trust for capturing the wonderment of your Special Day. Get with her soon and explore how good it can be.
"Had the privilege of working with Natalie on a couple of Y-Me Breast Cancer Walks. She has a very good eye for finding the shots that others would miss. She gets the job done right!
Natalie was really easy to work with and produced beautiful, well-composed images. She's very professional and will do a great job at any event!
