About me

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

Let's make it simpler

         Have some bare naked essentials about me

  I can almost bet 80% of your time is taken up planning every last detail, chasing your tail and worrying about the in-laws.

Style is personal

I know your photographer is a personal choice, as the quality of your images really do matter.

Why choose me?

 I don't overbook wedding after wedding

You have as much time as you need from me, and the quality of my work doesn't suffer.

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

I didn't pick up a camera a few years ago to make money shooting weddings. I'm a lifelong photographer, and artist, who happens to love shooting weddings (who wouldn't?!)

I've been shooting since the dark room days, specialised in fine art portraits, and consider your day just as important as the day I took home a 1st class Photography degree, and I haven't stopped shooting since!

The art of Photography is in my blood, my creative bones, no matter what I am capturing.

I'm not alone! I have a small army

I have a support network of  2 other highly experienced photographers who co-founded our bespoke photography studio 

(both available as 2nd and 3rd photographers) 

I listen to couples as individuals, I don't dictate, and I'm never happier when asked to shoot creative new trends to capture that image with the WoW factor.

For your security 

In the unlikely event that something happens to me before the day (hasn't yet), I have two experienced photographers who will step in, in an emergency.

So potential last minute panic to find a high quality experienced photographer when all the best are booked up, isn't going to be your problem.

I'm not afraid to get involved, climb on the van to get group shots, or interact with your guests. I also have a few tricks up my sleeve to create those extra magic moments which we have plenty of time to arrange before hand.

Choosing your photographer is personal, you are sharing one of the most intimate occasions with a complete stranger after all.

I take this onboard, offer you an opportunity to meet me and get comfortable in front of the lens. Around 80% of people are camera shy, so its important to get to know a little about you, and where possible, get you talking to the lens with confidence.

Testimonials

"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, 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!"

THIS IS
ME

As shot by Nick Lancaster (left) looking pensive and wearing questionable fashion choices (the cliché artist).

Ironically, I'm very approachable, relaxed in manner, and a highly sociable character smiling wildly from ear to ear whilst shooting non-stop.

I also come with an unfathomable amount of energy that's riding on the excitement of being fully immersed in a series of incredibly beautiful and irresistible moments.
And, all in my favourite creative playground that is your day.

Whatever your venue you can guarantee I will consider climbing on the roof to get that extra special shot.
I'm totally invested in capturing the best images of the day I won't be leaving on the hour, and I will make your guests feel as at ease with me as you do.
It's not unusual to forget I'm there, I move quickly, interacting lightly, but generously.
I'll be checking in regularly and briefly with you, never disappearing from sight for long.

Natasha Rae Photography

"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." 

Testimonials

Natasha was brilliant from the first point of contact on Hitched 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 

I'm a real portrait artist and storyteller, who enjoys making the unconventional, beautiful!

Honestly, my style is often unconventional, almost always energetic, whilst I lean more towards capturing the rawness, humour, and compassion that oozes out, with a little less cliché.

Think big expressions, unscripted moments with abstract composition, creatively intimate, timeless and bold.

I began inspired by early 20th century street photography during the dark room days, and haven't stopped shooting ever since!

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
