Get to know NATALYA

My life and work have been driven by this search for meaning. 

The first time I owned my own camera I was 13 years old. My father had a dark room in our house and I watched him develop film for hours every week. From a young age I became obsessed with creative imagery, visual storytelling, and the power of freezing a moment in time. My brother is a commercial director and DP, my sister is a writer, and my mother was a model and an interior designer. I've been a photographer for over 16 years and have been shooting weddings for over 8. I'm originally from Manhattan, New York, which is a place I hold near and dear to my heart.

Over the years I have lived in New York City, Connecticut, Colorado, Maine, Australia, and Los Angeles. Before I took my photography full-time, I managed projects to fight plastic pollution and climate change in Alaska, South Africa, Panama, Maldives, Paris and Jamaica.


Wedding & Editorial Photographer 


I'm an adventurer, explorer, and seeker and I'm constantly searching for something more...

My Vision

Natalya is always creating, forever a student with a sense of wanderlust and a passion to explore the unknown. She's a dog lover, wife, explorer, world traveler, devoted photographer, and entrepreneur. 

Her work blends natural portraiture and candid moments, with a chic, editorial touch. Through careful observation and great attention to detail, she is able to create a beautiful and romantic narrative. Her at-ease approach paired with her ability to truly see and feel, have been the fundamental elements in developing her aesthetic. 

creating Artistic and iconic images

“Natalya traveled to Sonoma for our wedding and completely blew us away. She found the most unique spots for photos and captured all of the best moments. We loved every minute of working with her, she is so incredibly talented and we cannot stop looking at our wedding portfolio.”


Natalya went above and beyond, making us feel so comfortable and authentically ourselves during our day 

“ She has a natural talent that is simply breath taking. She's very professional, personable, organized, detail oriented, and stays true to her style. I have never felt comfortable in front of the camera and she made the whole experience fun and easy. Natalya gave great direction during our wedding party/family photos without being bossy. She has a very kind demeanor that made everyone comfortable throughout the whole process. I was blown away from the photo previews I saw within days of our wedding. She’s incredibly talented.”


I cannot recommend a better photographer than Natalya

“ I was recommended her by my wedding planner and after just one phone call, I knew that we were in the right hands.”


Natalya was incredibly professional and personable

“Firstly, her style is amazing - our portfolio is absolutely stunning and I could not have asked for more beautiful and genuine photos. She put so much time and thought into learning about us as a couple and what we felt most comfortable with in terms of photos. I find myself flipping through the portfolio everyday. Second, she is so incredibly knowledgeable not only about lighting and her photography, etc. but also about the wedding day itself. She is so organized and thoughtful and truly was one of the most helpful in making sure everything was on time and according to plan. She is also so warm, calming, talented, and professional”


I don't know how to put into words how wonderful Natalya is as a photographer and as a person
