My approach to weddings

Photos that
like your love does
look and feel

"Natalie was more than we could have ever dreamed of in a wedding photographer.  She kept us relaxed and having fun during our wedding day. Our photos are bright, colorful, and cheerful - they capture the joy and energy of the day. " - Adam & Greta

"I WOULD HIRE HER AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT.  AMAZING IMAGES!"

My 7+ years of wedding experience have honed my ability to sense when my clients need some enthusiastic direction and encouragement, or when to become a fly on the wall to capture the precious moments naturally unfolding.  I want you to look at your photos and remember *that* moment. See *that* expression. When you two ran around in the sunset. Dancing with your besties to the nostalgic songs that bring you right back to high school. Your maid of honor tearing up during speeches. The moment your grandpa cries when he sees you in your wedding dress. The look your dad gave you as he was about to walk you down the aisle...

Behind the Images 

...the photos that show you just how loved you are. 

the heart

"I would hire Natalie again in an instant. Her photos are magical and real and full of light and life — exactly what we wanted in a wedding photographer. Natalie made us feel so comfortable and our photos really look like us. Natalie made us feel so cared for and supported throughout the whole process. Her business has the best combination of super professional and “on it”, fun and lighthearted, and full of warmth." - Mariah

Once you are booked, you'll receive my super helpful Wedding Guide + Engagement session guide. This includes vendor recommendations, how to choose your engagement session outfit, pros and cons of a first look, and tips and tricks for the best wedding photography experience.

We'll keep in touch leading up to your wedding day, whether that's 6 or 18 months away. We'll get to know each other more at your engagement session, make sure you two feel comfy and that your photos look like YOU (ok, like a polished up and really happy version of youuu). At about 2 months out, I'll send over your Wedding Questionnaire, which will include all the info I need to document your day thoroughly.

Natalie is THE BEST!!! She makes the whole process from start to finish smooth as butter!  She is there for any questions you have from start to end! She is so nice and easy/comfortable to be with! Plus - her photos are ABSOLUTELY BREATH TAKING!!! They are real, beautiful and US! That is my favorite thing about Natalie and her photos - is she takes them as they are and brings that to life. I cried so many times while we reviewed our wedding gallery and immediately ordered prints! 100/10 have already recommended her to all my family and friends! I look forward to working with her in the future too! BOOK HER NOW!!!!!

Natalie was more than we could have ever dreamed of in a wedding photographer. We love our engagement and wedding photos, but we also just really liked Natalie! She kept us relaxed and having fun during our wedding day. She helped prompt real laughter throughout the day. Our photos are bright, colorful, and cheerful - they capture the joy and energy of the day really well.

We would definitely hire Natalie for any future photography needs, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone. The bridesmaids have all talked several times about how great Natalie was, and it wouldn’t surprise us if they booked her for their future photography needs too!

Natalie with Bauer Creative Photography is the most accepting, talented, and easy-going photographer you will EVER find. She is professional. She is timely. She is so so great at what she loves to do. After taking engagement photos, boudoir photos, wedding photos, and hiring her for family photos in the midst of all that, she has become my go-to gal. The photos Natalie takes are timeless and authentic and we will cherish them forever.

"she's my go-to gal!"

Natalie has the perfect wedding photographer personality, instantly friendly and likable. It can be hard to relax for pictures sometimes, but Natalie made it feel like we were all just hanging out. One of our (married) bridesmaids commented "if I would have gotten married after you, I would have used Natalie as my photographer." We could not be happier both with our experience and our photos!

The pictures speak for themselves. We have so many gorgeous ones that we just love. We could not recommend Bauer Creative and Natalie highly enough!

Do you have backup gear?

Absolutely! On wedding days I carry a backup camera body, lenses, memory cards and batteries.

Once the wedding is complete, your photos are backed up multiple places until your wedding is delivered! Keeping your images safe is my #1 priority.
