Full Description
I have been surrounded by wonderful images all my life with my parents running their own photographic studios and my dad teaching me from a young age. Photography is my life, it’s in my blood, there's no denying it! I love weddings and making you the bride and groom feel relaxed, have fun and bring out the best in you. There is nothing more rewarding than capturing the love you have for one another and your friends and family and this is always so evident on your wedding day. I’m just lucky to be the one there, in the middle of it all telling the story of your day and capturing these beautiful moments in a beautiful way. I can’t wait to tell your Story. Natalie X

She's the best! Made to feel confident, silly and beautiful
I really don't know where to start with Nat. Utterly breathtaking pictures throughout start to finish. What a talent she has. Made myself and my husband feel extremely relaxed, confident, beautiful, sexy, silly and extremely happy throughout the pictures. I enjoyed doing every picture with her also. You would find her hid somewhere taking the most beautiful but natural pictures of us and our guests. Asked what kind of shots we would like along with doing her thing. I couldn't of asked for a more wonderful person to capture our most special day. Smiling, laughing with us throughout which made us feel so natural. Thank you nat. You were truly the best and we cannot wait to see the rest of our pictures ❤️❤️

Very talented & enthusiastic photographer - 10 stars!
I found Natalie through Bridebook and was instantly attracted to her style of photography - the high contrast and more artistic shots were just what we wanted... And she did not disappoint! Natalie was an absolute dream to work with and made us feel so comfortable at all times. Neither of us are really 'posey' photo people and just wanted natural and candid shots and we are so delighted with the what she produced. We got our digital album so quickly and was so lovely to be able to go through the pics after our honeymoon. Wish we could do it all again but at least we have the most amazing pictures to remind us of our day. If you are looking for a fun, enthusiastic and very talented photographer, then I couldn't recommend Natalie highly enough.

Cannot recommend Natalie highly enough!!
From start to finish Natalie has just been incredible. We met her at a wedding show and instantly fell in love with her and her work, communication was always smooth- including a postponement and change of date. The Story of Love studio is a lovely space and it was great to see Natalie again to talk through some specifics before the big day. On our wedding day, Natalie went above and beyond. We have had so many guests comment on how lovely she was and we were particularly impressed with how relaxed she made us feel whilst having photos taken, including how amazing she was with the children in our wedding party. We expected a bit of a wait to have our photos returned but Natalie worked flat out and had them back to us rapidly! Including a beautiful slideshow video which we could share with friends and family. The quality of the photos are great, and really showcase Natalie’s true talent- so many photos which I don’t think others would have thought of, utilising the industrial feel of our venue and special tricks of the light. Love, love, LOVE every single one of them and everything that Natalie achieved for us. Cannot recommend Story of Love highly enough!!

Highly Recommended
Peebles Hydro have worked many times with Natalie and Story of Love is one of our recommended wedding suppliers. Natalie is very familiar with our venue, and therefore knows all our hidden gems. This results in unique and stunning wedding photographs, many of which we use in our marketing collateral. It is important to us that we use local suppliers, and that we associate ourselves with business that provide a high quality service. It is always a pleasure working with Natalie, and we would thoroughly recommend her as your wedding photographer.

Struggling to find words to use
“Struggling to find words to use to describe just how amazing Natalie's photos of our wedding day is. We honestly cannot be happier with them, they are absolutely perfect! They bring the biggest smiles to our faces every time we look at them, instantly taking us back to the best day of our lives and we absolutely love the slideshow she made with background music for viewing them for the first time. So many unbelievable pictures of the entire day that we will cherish forever. From a personal point of view, being a guy, I hate getting pictures taken of me, but I can honestly say there was not a single moment where I felt awkward or uncomfortable. Natalie made having pictures taken fun! Felt totally at ease the entire day. So many natural pictures taken which we love, most of the time we didn't even see her taking any of them! To top it all off, and other reviews have also said the same, she really is one of the nicest, friendliest people you can meet. Nobody could say a bad word about her. Thank you so much Natalie once again for everything! We cannot recommend you highly enough, everything was just unbelievable!! Cheers The Darlings x”

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Photographing Greig Laidlaw, Scottish Rugby Captains wedding and having to take charge when all the newspapers were there to take their photographs!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, Documentary, Storytelling, Arty

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of all my referral clients I receive which means I have not only done a great job at that wedding for my couple but their friends have loved the job I have done too and put their trust in me to tell their story too.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy your day! Relax and let the emotions run, don't hold back!!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Exchanging their own vows with beautiful words that make you cry and I'm fighting back the tears behind the lens. I also had a groom pull out his guitar and sing to his wife at the speeches.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We have a bit of fun, relaxed and shoot very natural as so many people don't like the camera. I do always tell you what to do, I keep you right throughout the day and relax you, I show you where to stand and how to pose when I am creating something very unique that requires this.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I think every couple should dance down their aisle or atleast get those hands in the air/flowers in the air to say "We've done it!!" Happy fun expressions are always the best to capture.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I take photographs of your day, as it happens and unfolds with my knowledge and experience coming into play when required for family and couple shots. I prefer to let your day unfold and not pre plan too much.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Wellys and an umbrella! After all this is what happened on your day so we have to capture you in it, without getting too wet ofcourse, unless your keen - I am!! I can bring out lights and get some rain shots which can look so cool!

Describe how you got into photography.

My family ran photography studios all my life and I have always felt a creative urge to be behind a camera. Once I started doing weddings I knew this is where I wanted to be and what I loved the most!
