Choosing a photographer, it's a minefield out there!

Let's make it simpler

Here are some bare essentials about me and what I can offer you

Style is personal

I know your photographer is a personal choice, as the quality of your images really do matter as time goes by, its the one of the only tangible elements left can transports you back to that magical place.

Firstly, I believe its important to make a connection with your photographer, after all we're sharing a very intimate occassion with a total stranger - its seems really quite bizarre when you think of it like that.

It's not! If you're happy to have your photographer maneouvre skillfully (sometimes awkwardly) around your guests in a ninja like fashion (I've become mostly expert at this) you will get incredible shots.

"Natashas Spiderman skills, now THAT was commitment!!!"

However, it's also very' important your photographer has excellent people skills, and when it comes to those couple shots, you feel relaxed and able to share a certain level of intimacy.

"She made us feel so comfortable and natural, and still got THE shots we wanted!!"

The service your photographer brings should also have a positive affect on your guests who are also perfect strangers, this is why I make it my personal duty to know a little about you, and your story.

"She was patient, honest and so kind throughout the whole experience and all our guest said the same thing."

I don't over book wedding after wedding so my work doesn't suffer and I can give you as much of my time as you need.

I'm not just a wedding photographer, and you're not just another job to me.

I didn't pick up a camera a few years ago just to make money shooting weddings, I've been shooting since the dark room days, have a 1st class degree, and even specialised in fine art portraiture.

I also have a bespoke photography studio which welcomes every booking to a complimentary shoot personally styled to your liking (creative, casual, or engagement shoot, totally your preference).

I embrace less traditional weddings, unconventional couples, creative trends, second marriages looking for something different, and importantly, I listen to clients as individuals.

I have an artistic, modern, relaxed and playful approach to capturing authentic moments without the cliche, and with plenty of timeless, romantic and original style.

At the same time, I'm experienced in portrait artist, who can direct those who feel uncomfrotable and awkward infront of the lens (its pretty common) and can be casual and fun for those wonderfully unconventionally romantic couples.

"Holy smokes I am beyond happy we went with such a fabulous photographer!!"

"The photos we received were out of this world and everything we wanted from our special day. Highly recommend!"

Your packages

All packages include the following, the only difference is the amount of time I am with you on your day.

Most popular is of course the 3/4 from first preparation until the first dance (and a little after)

Although I generally have three packages, 1/2 day, 3/4 day (most popular), and the entire love story, I do make exceptions to tailor to the needs of individual clients where possible, and can always stay the extra hour if you decide as the day goes by

Packages start from £800

  • Hours of my time, and unlimited time before in preparation to talk over your style needs, all those important beautiful details that make your day unique.
  • USB and vintage glass gift box (all image rights are yours)
  • Specially selected online gallery to share with family and friends in advance of the final album
  • Out of time shots (if desired) in the best light and location the day can offer - just you two, or your closest people
  • Complimentary pre-wedding portraits (at my wonderful light filled studio, or in a location of your choice (depending on locality) This gift to you can be used to help you both feel relaxed with me and my camera, or as a wedding gift to your partner, if you fancy portraits of a more intimate nature.
  • Hundreds of specially selected high definition shots all edited in my signature style (I over shoot)
  • You also have the option to own the outtakes, those shots you might have missed - free of charge

I start early, get to know the venue, and never leave you on the hour (how could I?)

Call for a no pressure initial consultation, with smaller packages available for unique elopement plans.

Don't forget to check out my discount offers due to last minute changes in my personal schedule.

If you don't choose me, please use this information to help you make an informed decision, and find the right photographer for you.

Amazing, wonderful and so patient!!

Natasha was absolutely incredible at our wedding, she started earlier in the day to get aquatinted with the guests, traditions and family members at our wedding. She was taking pictures non stop the entire event capturing every candid moment. She was so patient and so kind throughout and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better to be part of our special day.

Amazing photos from a lovely lady!

Natasha was brilliant from the first point of contact on Hitch right until even after we received our photos! She was patient, honest and so kind throughout the whole experience and all our guest said the same thing. The photos we received (online gallery and on a usb) were out of this world and everything we wanted from our special day. Highly recommend!

Natasha Rae Photography

I approached Natasha to photograph my wedding day, having seen some of her work and she had been recommended as a local photographer.

I was unsure what I actually wanted other than I wanted as many natural shots as possible and plenty of pictures capturing the magic of the day. Natasha certainly delivered. Her unique eye and attention to detail meant that every important part has been retained in phographic history and allowed me to look back and remember it all like it was yesterday.

Natasha blended in, she mixed in to the wedding party and it was difficult to remember she was there. She managed to capture moments that otherwise I'd have missed during the busy day.

I would recommend her for any photography needs, a natural talent who delivers exactly what the client requests. Thank you so much x

Fabulous moments captured by Natasha

I was looking for a photographer who told a story with not too many formal shots. Natasha was so flexible with any suggestions and with the final photos giving you all the images which allows you to make choices yourself.
I loved the unedited, totally raw shots and the whole package.
Natasha delivered what I asked for creating some fabulous memories.

Laid back, calm, smiley and professional

As we had both been married before, we chose Natasha mainly for the candid shots we had seen, as we wanted a laid back, chilled approach, not too formal. Also we were able to go for the half day (4 hour package - knowing total flexibility on the day and if needed longer Natasha was more then happy to stay at an additional hourly fee if needed) We chatted via text/email initially then via phone and felt comfortable from the get go. Nothing has been too much trouble, she will go above and beyond to ensure she captures your day as requested. Very prompt and 1st class after service also. Plenty pictures in both colour and Black and White for choice too. Amazing.
