A husband and wife, elopement and wedding photographer duo. When we’re not getting slimed by our own slobbery dog Fern, or helping you plan your dream wedding day, you can probably find us scoping out some new Korean BBQ joint, picking some blueberries at our favorite farms or exploring the dusty corners of our favorite antique emporiums. Serving both East Coast and the PNW, we’re your intimate wedding photographers, die hard dog-petters, and donut-eaters.

We’re all about encouraging organic moments and letting them unfold naturally. Instead of posing you, we know just how to make real moments happen by connecting and resonating with you two as individuals and as a collective…with none of the cheesy, stand-there-and-smile-at-the-camera bullshit. Our specialty lies in helping you be you and capturing you just as you are.
We tell every part of your story as it is – from the blurry moments, to the messy moments, and everything in between. We’ll be your guide the whole way through so you can spend more time focused on making memories, crying happy tears, and eating those post-ceremony snacks (there’s nothing like a half-melted trail gummy bear).

This day isn’t just about photos for you.
It’s about celebrating.
So let’s celebrate the real you – together.



We understand exactly what it’s like to have a non-traditional wedding day…Because that’s exactly what we did too! We eloped because we wanted to celebrate with the good stuff and none of the wedding fluff that didn’t feel like us. Sound familiar?

It was our biggest priority to have a chill day, surrounded by our favorite people, in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Oh, and of course having our sweet dog, Fern, there! We even signed our marriage license over a slice of pizza!

It couldn’t have been more us.

And after photographing over 200+ weddings with couples who felt the same way, we know just how to plan an elopement day to make it happen for you too!



Our work is a mix of film and digital photos, and Super 8mm film! But we don’t just help with the photos either…We plan your elopement from start to finish, with timelines, activities, and plenty of time to do everything you love and nothing you don’t. Plus, we have tons of guides for everything in between! Check out some of our favorites below:

We cannot say enough nice things about natasha; she is a true gem, a unicorn photographer, a professional who will blend in seamlessly with your family and friends, and whose beautiful results speak for themselves. We adored working with natasha from start to finish – 10/10 recommend!

Rachel + Michael

Natasha captured little stories, not just pictures. And somehow the hot mess that was a perfectly imperfect day suddenly became a dramatic documentary. All I can say is thank you so very much.

Desiree + Clarence

“We were determined to have a low-key, somewhat non-traditional day, and Natasha was not only right on board, but helped to smooth out ruffles along the way. She really affirmed what we were doing and her affirmations really helped us stay present in our experience on the day of. We are so grateful to her for that.”

Claire + Dave

"Natasha and Brian were truly wonderful, and our wedding was made so much more relaxing and enjoyable with them behind the lens. They let us just be us, and by the end of everything, we genuinely gained friends, and the most beautiful, most "Us" photos we ever could have hoped for."

Amanda + Lizzy

Working with Natasha was one of the best experiences I’ve had with a photographer! From the moment we met with Natasha via Zoom, we knew she was exactly what we were looking for. She was so chill and down to earth and really listened to us. We could not have asked for a better fit!!!
