"You always picture how your wedding will be. The amazing feeling you will have to see everything you envisioned come together into one beautiful day. How much fun you will have getting ready in the morning with your best friends, sisters, and momma’s. And the love in your Husbands eyes when he see’s his future wife walking down the aisle. You picture the beauty of the day both visually and emotionally, and how you will cherish those memories forever. Perhaps one of the most import jobs on your wedding day is given to who you entrust in capturing those moments.
I met Natalie through work. I am a wedding coordinator, and I had reached out to her when I started working in the area. I was in awe over her talent, and straight away felt a connection to how she captured such pure and beautiful moments. I knew after meeting her that she would one day be my wedding photographer!
Our wedding day was everything that I could of ever asked for. It was such a incredible day with so much love and beauty. Natalie absolutely blew my already very high expectations out of the water. She is so good at what she does. Natalie made taking all of our photos so much fun. She knew when to allow us to have space and be in the moment, and when to direct and take charge. You want to be able to get caught up in the moment on your wedding day and not have to be the one worrying about who to take photos with or what needs to be captured next. She did such a wonderful job at making sure we got all the shots we needed, but allowing us to enjoy and have fun with all of them. From standing on chairs, to driving up hills, to dancing with us on the dance floor Natalie did whatever it took to get the most raw and sincere footage of our most special day. My husband and I cry every time we look through our wedding album and that is a huge thanks to Natalie Schutt Photography. "
"My husband and I knew choosing a wedding photographer would be our toughest task of wedding planning. After all, the person we chose would be the one we'd be trusting to capture the best day of our lives. After some intense searching for a wedding photographer I came across Natalie’s Instagram page. I immediately knew she was the one! Making initial contact (and over all communication throughout the whole wedding planning process) with Natalie was so easy. She always responded quickly and answered any questions/concerns we had. When I first met Natalie, it was as if she was my long lost friend - I felt totally comfortable with her as we laughed and talked about the big day. She is the sweetest, most fun and joy filled human I’ve ever met - it totally shines through with her photography. My husband and I were able to throughly enjoy our wedding day and I feel like we have Natalie to thank for that! Our minds were at ease knowing she would be there to photograph all the littlest moments + details throughout the day. Having her capture our wedding day was an absolute DREAM! We now have gorgeous & timeless photos that we're going to cherish forever. We can’t thank Natalie enough!!"
"Gosh - where do I begin to say how lucky I am to have randomly come across Natalie! Natalie is the best photographer a wedding couple could hope for – and the sweetest! From the first Skype with her from NYC, my husband and I knew we picked the right photographer. We flew out to California for our engagement shoot; she made us feel so comfortable. Her personality is so wonderful to be around, we felt like we had known her forever. We had such an amazing time on the beach shooting our engagement pictures; we didn’t want the evening to end! On my wedding day, Natalie captured all of the moments I wanted to remember, not just my beautiful venue, gorgeous dress, or the cake – but the joy on my father’s face as he saw me for the first time in my wedding dress and the look in my new husband’s eyes as he saw me walk down the aisle!
Natalie’s love for photography and genuine excitement about my big day truly enriched my wedding. She is a true artist with an excellent eye for lighting and design, which she skillfully brought together to capture beautiful moments on May 7, 2016. My family and friends are still talking about how much they loved Natalie! She captured the beauty, fun, detail and excitement of my wedding day and took the most breathtaking photographs – just STUNNING! I absolutely LOVE all the photos and Natalie is just a pleasure to work with – one of a kind!
Natalie – I can’t thank you enough for capturing my dream wedding. I still get happy tears looking through my pictures as I relive my wedding day through the photographs. You are so amazing and I can’t wait for you to capture another life event for me or my friends and family! "
Natalie is uniquely talented in capturing both grand and whimsical moments. She does all of this with great professionalism and artistry. While we came away with incredible images from our wedding, as a bride, what is even more special to me is that Natalie easily becomes a supportive friend who expertly navigates her couples through the wedding process. I am so thankful for Natalie and what she provides for her wedding couples!
"From start to finish, Nick & I meeting Natalie was totally a God thing! I didn’t know Natalie until I found her Instagram page while searching for a wedding photographer. After booking her and then meeting her in person, I realized her personality was so well displayed in the joy and light she captures in her photography. My wedding day was truly one of the best days of my life and I think Natalie was a great part of that. Her demeanor and sincere personality were the two things that kept the day flowing and allowed Nick & I to truly celebrate our day, and the love we had for one another. Family and friends that only got a glimpse of who Natalie was still talk about how totally impressed they were by her caring and professional attitude. My parents feel like they have a new daughter and I feel like I have a new friend. Natalie, thank you for capturing our day as the day I had hoped and dreamed of having. Continue to let Christ’s light shine brightly in you as you make each of your clients feel so special!"
"Natalie did such a wonderful job capturing the special moments of our wedding. Not only is she amazingly talented, but she was such a joy to work with and you can tell she truly cares about her clients. She has such a fun and kind demeanor which makes you immediately feel comfortable in front of the camera! We received our photos quickly and are so happy with how Natalie was able to capture every intimate and beautiful moment on our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and we are beyond happy with how our photos turned out!"
"Natalie was a dream wedding photographer for us. We loved the look of Natalie's style from the first moment we discovered her work. From the perfectly captured sun kissed shots on the beach, to the extremely intimate moments that she captures between her couples- we knew that she was the perfect person to capture our Maui destination wedding.
Leading up to our wedding, Natalie was extremely engaged with getting a true feel for what we expected out of our wedding photographer. She was excited to receive inspiration photos from us so she knew specific looks we were going for. This really was a key moment in putting any of our pre-wedding jitters at ease.
The end result was more than we could have asked for!!! Hiring Natalie was the absolute best decision that we made in our wedding planning process. She has such an amazing spirit, knows how to capture those intimate moments & fully embraced the beautiful atmosphere in a destiny setting. We couldn't be happier that she was there on our wedding day! "
"Hiring a wedding photographer is one of the hardest decisions that you have to make when planning a wedding. While all of the vendors you hire will work towards making your wedding the best day ever, the photos from your wedding photographer will last for the rest of your lives. You need to find someone with whom you are comfortable, as well as someone who you trust. Thankfully, once we saw Natalie's work the decision was easy. Her photography style is exactly what we were looking for as she highlights natural beauty with incredible use of lighting, and her personality instantly invites you in to become friends. She was so helpful throughout the planning process, helping me to create a timeline for the day to ensure that designated picture times would have the proper lighting. Come the day of the wedding she was enthusiastic, professional, and encouraging. Her positive feedback helped me be comfortable in front of her camera both by myself during the getting ready photos, as well as with my husband during our romantic photos. This allowed for even sweeter intimate photos because we were able to completely be ourselves with her. She truly captured all of the moments of our wedding beautifully, and we have nothing but praise for her. Our wedding photos turned out phenomenal and we will cherish them always. So if you are looking for a photographer, invest in Natalie! As everyone has said, it truly is the best decision!"
"Natalie was wonderful! She made us feel at ease, joined in the excitement of our day, and thoughtfully captured those special moments. Our photos are incredibly beautiful - better than we could have asked for! We were pleasantly surprised at the very quick turnaround on getting our pictures. It is obvious that she goes out of her way to provide excellent service to her customers. Thank you Natalie for being such a blessing to us!"
We can not thank Natalie enough for capturing our special day. My wife and I loved her work from the moment we saw her photography online. Choosing her to capture our engagement and wedding was one of the best decisions we made. She is positive, professional, kind, funny, and so easy to work with. We truly felt like we were taking photos with a close friend. We could not be happier with how our engagement and wedding photos turned out. She is an incredible photographer and artist. The moments captured are ones that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you Natalie for sharing your talents with us and for making our wedding day unforgettable.
"I searched extensively before I found a photographer who I felt would best capture one of the most important days of our life. From the first time I contacted Natalie, her enthusiasm, not only for her craft, but for meeting people is extraordinary. She is kind, faith-driven, hilarious, and can line dance with the best of them. Natalie is genuinely interested in learning about you, not just as her client, but as a person. Her work speaks for itself: beautiful, authentic and inspiring. If you are looking for a photographer who will approach your wedding day, or any event, as if it was her own, do not hesitate to contact her! You will love her, just like we do! We can't stop looking at our engagement and wedding photos and are so thankful we chose her as our photographer."
"on this weekend, we celebrated our first year of marriage. The last year has been full of adventures and we both feel so lucky to be able to share these experiences together. I can’t help but think back to the words in our ceremony which now perfectly describe how our marriage has felt since we took our vows in June last year… “Marriage is an equal partnership of love, support and respect for each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other relationship can equal. Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life. Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher, commitment is stronger." Stuart and I are from Scotland. We both love to travel and have spent the last few years hopping around the world at any given opportunity. California was high on our list so we planned a two week vacation visiting some of the most beautiful places the state has to offer. We wanted to capture some of the memories so we contacted Natalie to arrange an anniversary shoot. She couldn’t have picked a more perfect location, and we had a lot of fun trying to avoid being splashed by the Pacific’s freezing cold waves! El Matador was so breathtakingly beautiful and we couldn’t be more happy with how the pictures turned out, so thank you Natalie for being so good at what you do! Maybe next time we’ll see you in Scotland! xx"
Natalie is amazingly talented and such a sweet soul! She instantly made Joseph & I feel at ease despite us never having taken professional photos and feeling initially nervous about being in front of the camera. We laughed the whole time even when the rain came down and had a blast during our engagement shoot with Natalie. She was so professional throughout the process, from helping us pick a perfect location and giving us outfit recommendations to guiding us through the photoshoot and delivering beautiful images. She has an incredible ability to capture those natural moments that sum up our personalities and love perfectly. We are so happy with how the photos turned out and will cherish them forever!"
"I absolutely adore natalie! we booked Natalie for our engagement shoot and all the shots we received just took our breath away! i couldn't be more pleased with the results. she captured our love beautifully and we had a lot of fun at the same time. what stood out most was her ability to listen to what we envisioned and curate our photos accordingly! she is just beautiful inside and out with an amazing personality to work with. we can't wait for her to capture our wedding next year! i would highly recommend natalie for any photography work. she's prompt, dependable, extremely talented, and goes above and beyond in what she does. thank you natalie!"
"We just finished looking through all our pictures and we could not be more ecstatic with how our pregnancy announcement photos turned out! Natalie, one of the sweetest souls we have ever met, did such a wonderful job putting us at ease and was such a joy to work with. She made us feel so comfortable exploring different poses and expressing authentic moments with each other at the beach. Not to mention, her ability to work with dogs was impressive! While we should have foreseen that our dog would be distracted at the beach with tons of wildlife surrounding him, Natalie was still able to capture some of the most classic pictures of him and his "Older Brother" chalkboard. During the weeks prior to our shoot, natalie was so friendly, kind, and attentive to detail, encouraging us to present her with our vision so that our desires would be met. she captured such precious moments that showcase our emotions for welcoming this new child into the world in such a beautiful way. each photo is a memory that we can share with our family and look back on with a smile. we just received the prints and will be framing them this week. from both of us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! we can't wait to shoot our maternity and newborn photos with you!"
"Chad & i had so much fun doing our Valentine's day shoot with Natalie! We hadn't taken professional pictures since our wedding two years prior so we were both a little rusty, but Natalie put us at ease right away. She gave us great direction when we needed it, but also gave us the freedom to be ourselves. her creative eye and love of light captured some fantastic pictures that we have fallen in love with. She is a one-of-a-kind talent and has the ability to make even the most un-photogenic person (I won't say which one of us that is...) look amazing! We will definitely be taking more pictures with her in the years to come."
"Natalie was absolutely amazing. we met on a beautiful cliff in my hometown and, from the first minute, she made my boyfriend and I feel comfortable and excited for our session. she is a master at directing creative poses that make for natural, flattering photos and her ability to photograph the in-between, candid moments is astounding! I love each and every photo she took of us. Thank you for the wonderful memories you captured - I will treasure them forever!"
"Natalie is the greatest! We didn't have a special occasion, but when we saw her pictures, we new we had to book a session with her. she not only made us feel comfortable the whole time, but she also made the session fun! she knows exactly what she's doing and our pictures turned out so amazing! Thank you natalie, looking forward to working with you again!"
"I would definitely recommend natalie. You can tell she really loves what she does, and that is so important. Her passion shows through how beautifully she captures moments and how excited she is to do so. I'm so glad she was able to capture my return home from a long deployment. These pictures mean so much, so thank you. definitely looking forward to future shoots with you!"
"Natalie was really great to work with! she made us feel immediately comfortable in front of the camera with her upbeat and vibrant personality! We are super impressed with the way our photos came out. I am so happy that she was able to capture such a precious time for us :). Thanks natalie for making this such a fun experience! To anyone looking for a great photographer -- here's your girl!"
"When i saw Natalie's photography, I was so taken by the composition, lighting, and casualness of her shots. She has a knack for capturing the beauty, not just in the scenery of her photography but more importantly in each person. Natalie loves people and art and combines them so well in her amazing work. As part of a busy family of six, i am so happy to have these photos of us!"
"Natalie is a phenomenal photographer. not only is she extremely passionate about photography and her work, she exhibits immense compassion as well: for her assistants, models, guests, vendors, & anyone else who comes along or contributes to her shoots. Natalie is encouraging in that she made me feel comfortable & beautiful, and I had an absolute blast working with her! she is an incredibly hard worker, dedicated to capturing beautiful moments and creating lasting images of wonderful memories and events in people's lives.

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Natalie Schutt for a few years now. Not only is she one of the most genuine and sincere people I have ever met, but has such a raw talent for art and photography.
Natalie has such an incredible eye for color and design--her photographs are absolutely captivating. When she asked me to participate in the Bohemian Winter Wedding Photo Shoot, I knew that she would be on top of everything, keeping me up to date with every detail, and being thorough in all her planning. That’s just the kind of girl she is. I could leave anything in Natalie’s hands and be sure that it would get done and turn out ten times better than expected.
The day of the shoot was such a blast. Spending any time with Natalie is such a joy, but getting to see her do what she loves was even better. She is honest, encouraging, and up beat, and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. She’s a people person. So the relational aspect of this job comes very naturally to her, which I love. On top of that, she’s talented beyond her years and puts her heart and soul into her work. Natalie’s work is stunning and I am so amazed at everything she does. The photos she took of me I will cherish forever. Thank you Natalie for capturing special moments so beautifully."
- Emily, bridesmaid
"Natalie did an absolutely AMAZING job capturing our special day. I am so thrilled with how the pictures turned out, they are absolutely stunning! The first time I sat down with Natalie, it was like catching up withan old friend. I knew right away she would be the perfect photographer. She went above and beyond my expectations of a photographer, not only did she produce amazing work, she provided so much encouragement and support along the way! She radiates joy, and that is exactly what comes across in her photography!"
"I think it speaks mountains about someone, if you can stay friends with them for as long as I have with Natalie. for 8 whole years I have known this wonderful woman, who has embraced me and my crazy self fully. I knew that once I graduated that there was no one else I would trust with taking my photos, and as you can see, she did not disappoint. I let her be the creative director of my grad shoot, and never had I felt more beautiful, comfortable, and understood of my vision before. This girl has a special gift with her camera, letting the world see the beauty that she sees in everyone around her. From one photographer to another, you are an amazing friend and truly an inspiration."
