I'm Natalya

Photography has been my biggest passion since I was a little girl. My father was a hobby photographer so I grew up with a dark room in my house. I watched him develop film for hours every week and from a young age I became obsessed with creative imagery, visual storytelling, and the power of freezing time with a photograph. 

I come from a family of creatives. My brother is a director and videographer for commercials and documentaries, my sister is a passionate writer, and my mother is an interior designer.

I left the corporate world to pursue my passion for wedding photography. I jumped all in, heart first. I can't tell you how grateful I am to do what I love.

I grew up in New York City and I’ve always had a passion for photography, style, and fashion. For this reason, I think my approach to wedding photography has an editorial touch. I also capture the candid moments, the details, and everything in between.

When I’m not photographing weddings I like to travel. Before I was a full-time photographer I managed projects to fight plastic pollution and climate change in Alaska, South Africa, Panama, Maldives, Paris and Jamaica. When I'm not documenting the beauty of life you can find me doing yoga, sailing, skiing, rock climbing, surfing or hanging out with friends at the beach. I love exploring everything that mother nature has to offer.

Natalya went to University of Colorado at Boulder and studied Business Administration. She grew up in New York City, but has lived in Maine, Connecticut, Colorado, Australia, and Los Angeles. She moved back to Maine in 2015 to be close to family, the ocean, and to pursue her photography career. She's currently living in Cape Elizabeth with her sweetheart and two dogs, Olive and Frank.

Natalya really took the time to get to know us and what we expected. She is super passionate about her work and it shows

Photography became a passion when I realized that I was able to create something truly meaningful for the people I photograph. I'm blessed to be able to capture a moment for someone and see their faces light up. I want to create memories for people to share with one another. My top priority is to establish a connection with every person I photograph. I’m a huge people person. I want you to see me as a long time friend. I’m your right hand woman, your trusted confidant, your support system. Every wedding is unique to the client. I get to know my clients and go from there. I'm a very emotion driven person behind the camera. There is no picture more beautiful than someone in love. I use my skills to capture specifically that – the emotion, the moment, and the connection with each person I photograph. 

Alisha has been shooting weddings for over 6 years and has photographed over 80 weddings 

I’m a natural light photographer leveraging both digital and film to capture genuine moments. My work can be described as authentic, colorful and leans toward the film aesthetic. With a documentary and fine art approach I pay special attention to details which allows a unique story to develop through imagery. My work has been printed in Boston Common Magazine and in online publications including Let's Bee Together, Zola Unveiled, Lemonade and Lenses and Wedding Boston. 

When Hannah’s not working, you'll find her gushing over interior design catalogs, learning copperplate calligraphy, spinning, hysterically crying at the latest rom-com and spending time with her main squeeze Jon. She's always planning her next vacation and finds capturing different cities and cultures to be the most inspiring thing she can do. She's obsessed with big smiles, dessert, flowers, white linens, straw hats, and the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans.
