NYC // Adirondack // Hudson Valley based wedding and elopement photographer + dog petter + donut eater.
Your wedding day is about you.
I capture the natural silly moments, the BIG emotions, the quiet happy tears, because that is what makes you you. Your love is unique and your photos should be too. I want to capture what it is that makes your love special. What is your favorite thing that you do together? Is it the way that she wraps her legs around you sitting in the grass? What about how the look you give him when he's trying to sneak a last minute kiss? Those little quirky imperfectly perfect things, the moments that you have when you think no one is watching. Those are the photos I want you to have. We'll spend the day laughing, crying (trust me, I'll cry with you), and everything in between together.
I'm not here to just show up and take photos and leave. Together we'll build a relationship of trust to create something magical together. This sound like your dream wedding? Let's climb a mountain at sunrise to say your "I do's"!
My parter in crime, Brian, and I are always on the look out for the best tacos and swim spots around. When I'm not deep in the woods somewhere, I shamelessly binge watching The Office (you know you'll watch it 5 more times too), finding new donut flavors to try, and making some new jam concoction to can!

Natasha was our ROCK on our wedding day!
Natasha rolls with the punches with a smile on her face, and manages to get beautiful photos when you least expect it! We had some challenges with our wedding, but Natasha was always there for us and didn't let anything bother her. She's kind and friendly to everyone, but also doesn't let anyone get in her way to get the job done.Sent on 02/03/2020
She can make anyone feel comfortable, and anyone who's camera shy look amazing. We work in the television industry and are truly only comfortable behind a camera (or computer), but she really worked with us to get us to relax and enjoy the process. She came up with a bunch of creative solutions to get great photos and listened to what we wanted.
She was always punctual, prepared, and just an all around boss! Easily one of the best choices we made for our wedding, and we'd absolutely recommend her and would use her again!

All you need to do is take a stroll through her galleries to see the magic this beautiful human makes. We had a pretty random, quickly put together elopement(thanks corona) & the most important thing I could think of for the day was " I have to find the right photographer to document this". Natasha (& Brian) hiked up a mountain in the mud and rain, in 38 degree weather for us, and managed to capture the moodiest, most wonderful photos. I particularly loved her work because I felt like she captured little stories, not just pictures. When I tell you my make up was a little runny, my hair was coming undone, and my husband and I were soggy & shivering, you're probably thinking 'what a nightmare'. That’s how you know just how incredible your photographer is... When you get the photos back and somehow the hot mess that was a perfectly imperfect day suddenly becomes a dramatic documentary. We couldn’t be happier with the whole gallery. She was super responsive and communicative, punctual, and most of all, so sweet and personable. We both felt very comfortable which helped us in the awkward "I dont know what to do for these photos" thing we all go through. I cant say enough nice things, i'd go on and on; but this review would be ridiculously long. All I can say is thank you so very much. 1000/10.Sent on 11/23/2020

Best photographer ever!
When my husband and I had to postpone our wedding to next year because of COVID, we knew we still wanted to have a small ceremony with immediate family this year. Natasha was SUPER accommodating with changing our original wedding date to next year AND was also available (and super supportive) for our new date for our "microwedding". The pictures she took were amazing, everything we expected and more. She captured the happiness, laughs, and genuine moments AND sent them to us in such a small amount of time. I can't wait for her to capture those moments next year as well. She is super kind, friendly, and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.Sent on 08/04/2020
