"ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TAKE A STROLL THROUGH HER GALLERIES TO SEE THE MAGIC THIS BEAUTIFUL HUMAN MAKES. WE HAD A PRETTY RANDOM, QUICKLY PUT TOGETHER ELOPEMENT (THANKS CORONA) & THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I COULD THINK OF FOR THE DAY WAS " I HAVE TO FIND THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER TO DOCUMENT THIS". NATASHA (& BRIAN) HIKED UP A MOUNTAIN IN THE MUD AND RAIN, IN 38 DEGREE WEATHER FOR US, AND MANAGED TO CAPTURE THE MOODIEST, MOST WONDERFUL PHOTOS. I PARTICULARLY LOVED HER WORK BECAUSE I FELT LIKE SHE CAPTURED LITTLE STORIES, NOT JUST PICTURES. WHEN I TELL YOU MY MAKE UP WAS A LITTLE RUNNY, MY HAIR WAS COMING UNDONE, AND MY HUSBAND AND I WERE SOGGY & SHIVERING, YOU'RE PROBABLY THINKING 'WHAT A NIGHTMARE'. THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW JUST HOW INCREDIBLE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER IS... WHEN YOU GET THE PHOTOS BACK AND SOMEHOW THE HOT MESS THAT WAS A PERFECTLY IMPERFECT DAY SUDDENLY BECOMES A DRAMATIC DOCUMENTARY. WE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH THE WHOLE GALLERY. SHE WAS SUPER RESPONSIVE AND COMMUNICATIVE, PUNCTUAL, AND MOST OF ALL, SO SWEET AND PERSONABLE. WE BOTH FELT VERY COMFORTABLE WHICH HELPED US IN THE AWKWARD "I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO FOR THESE PHOTOS" THING WE ALL GO THROUGH. I CANT SAY ENOUGH NICE THINGS, I'D GO ON AND ON; BUT THIS REVIEW WOULD BE RIDICULOUSLY LONG. ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. 1000/10."

"NATASHA ROLLS WITH THE PUNCHES WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE, AND MANAGES TO GET BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT! WE HAD SOME CHALLENGES WITH OUR WEDDING, BUT NATASHA WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR US AND DIDN'T LET ANYTHING BOTHER HER. SHE'S KIND AND FRIENDLY TO EVERYONE, BUT ALSO DOESN'T LET ANYONE GET IN HER WAY TO GET THE JOB DONE. SHE CAN MAKE ANYONE FEEL COMFORTABLE, AND ANYONE WHO'S CAMERA SHY LOOK AMAZING. WE WORK IN THE TELEVISION INDUSTRY AND ARE TRULY ONLY COMFORTABLE BEHIND A CAMERA (OR COMPUTER), BUT SHE REALLY WORKED WITH US TO GET US TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE PROCESS. SHE CAME UP WITH A BUNCH OF CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO GET GREAT PHOTOS AND LISTENED TO WHAT WE WANTED. SHE WAS ALWAYS PUNCTUAL, PREPARED, AND JUST AN ALL AROUND BOSS! EASILY ONE OF THE BEST CHOICES WE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING, AND WE'D ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND HER AND WOULD USE HER AGAIN!"

"I DON’T OFTEN GIVE 5-STAR REVIEWS. MOST OF OUR VENDORS HAD A FEW SHORTCOMINGS, EVEN THOUGH EVERYTHING ENDED UP GREAT IN THE END. BUT NATASHA AND BRIAN- 5 STARS FROM START TO FINISH. I CAN TELL THAT NATASHA IS A BIT SELECTIVE ABOUT WHO SHE WORKS FOR. IF YOU’RE LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET A BOOKING, YOU WON’T BE LET DOWN. WE HAD A FEW PHONE CALLS BEFORE MONEY EXCHANGED HANDS, TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR PLANS AND STYLE MATCHED. WE LOVED HER PHOTOS BECAUSE THEY ARE A BIT MORE ARTISTIC THAN THE REST: NO OVERDONE FILTERS, LOTS OF GREAT WORK WITH NATURAL LIGHTING, AND GREAT CAPTURES OF TRUE EMOTIONS. THEY ALSO FOCUS ON NATURE AND LANDSCAPE, WHICH IS CRUCIAL FOR A DESTINATION LIKE OURS (LAKE PLACID NY). YOU SIMPLY WON’T GET CHEESY, GENERIC, OR OVER-EDITED PHOTOS WITH HER. HER AND BRIAN ARE REAL ADVENTUROUS TYPES, AND THEY DROVE 4 HOURS TO OUR HOUSE FOR AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT. THE PHOTOS WERE JUST WHAT WE WANTED, AND WE COOKED THEM A NICE DINNER BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST GREAT PEOPLE TO HAVE AROUND. MY WIFE WAS VERY CONCERNED THAT SHE WOULDN’T BE PHOTOGENIC, BUT NATASHA HAD A GREAT DEMEANOR AND WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS OF US, AND EVEN MY PICKY WIFE FELT BEAUTIFUL WHEN THE PHOTOS CAME BACK. EVEN THOUGH WE’VE BECOME FRIENDS, THEY WERE TRUE PROFESSIONALS DURING THE WEDDING. SADLY, WE DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO CHAT, BUT THEY DID THEIR WORK AND STAYED IN THE BACKGROUND. THEY WEREN’T PUSHY, BUT THEY GOT INCREDIBLE PHOTOS OF US. THERE WAS NO MONEY-GRABBING OR HIDDEN CHARGES, AND SHE GOT OUR PHOTOS BACK IN A REASONABLE TIME. NO CRAZY CONTRACTS, AND A FAIR PRICE FOR A PROFESSIONAL HELPER. THIS IS TRULY A RARITY IN WEDDING VENDOR SELECTION. WE LOVED THESE GUYS, AND WE STILL KEEP IN TOUCH AS FRIENDS. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO SUGGEST THEM MORE, ASSUMING YOU WANT PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS THAT STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD."

"WE LOVED NATASHA FROM OUR VERY FIRST FACETIME. SHE WAS SO RELAXED, HELPFUL AND SWEET. WHEN COVID HIT, SHE WAS EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE AND POSITIVE WHILE WE BRAINSTORMED ALTERNATE WEDDING DAYS AND LOCATIONS. WE ENDED UP ELOPING AND WHILE WE HAD TO CHANGE A LOT OF THE DETAILS, NATASHA'S PHOTOS MAKE THE DAY FEEL LIKE A FULL BLOWN WEDDING DAY. SHE PERFECTLY CAPTURED TENDER CANDID MOMENTS, MOMENTS OF JOY WITH FRIENDS BUT ALSO WAS SO SKILLFUL IN DIRECTING OUR MORE POISED PHOTOS. SHE KNOWS WHAT LOOKS AMAZING AND SHE'S A PRO AT MAKING IT HAPPEN. COULDN'T RECOMMEND NATASHA ANY MORE - SHE'S THE LOVELIEST PERSON TO SPEND YOUR WEDDING DAY WITH AND YOU'LL BE BLOWN AWAY BY THE PHOTOS."
