I’m a hopeless romantic. Whether an intimate village hall or the grandest of stately homes, for me it’s all about the happy couple and capturing one of the most important days two people can ever share. I’ve always loved weddings! Everything from the anticipation of getting ready, the moment he first sees her, the tears of joy, the loving looks and the beautiful gestures throughout.
As well as being behind the camera in 2017 I was also in front of one, marrying my charming husband Adam. So I know first hand just how important it is to have a photographer you can trust and who makes sure you feel at ease, are having fun and is capturing every important element of your special day.
Getting married is one of the most important days of your life. With that in mind, I always love to meet couples before their big day so we can get to know each other and you become relaxed and comfortable around me. Over a coffee and cake we can chat about all the ins and outs of your wedding day, including all the little details and personal touches. This also is a great opportunity for me to take a glimpse in to your love story and personalities, which helps me to deliver wedding images which reflect your unique bond.
I am well known for my unique and elegant documentary style photography, creating eye catching high quality images you will be proud to share. I am serious and dedicated about the job in hand but also there to blend into your day, if you don’t notice me, i’m doing a good job! That said I am happy to gently direct where needed.
Editing the photos is what brings the photos to life! With my graphic design and editorial background,I take the time to edit each photo to its highest quality. For this reason I only book a limited number of weddings/ engagement shoots every year- this gives me time for individual attention and detailing and allows me to edit to perfection! I believe that your wedding images are more of an investment as you can never replicate them.
I am based in York, North Yorkshire but cover all of Yorkshire and beyond. Destination wedding? I’m there!

"Natalie made our wedding day more than perfect, going above and beyond to ensure we got what we wanted. Taking time out of her day to meet us on several occasions just to plan out the day, making the actual day a lot less stressful. She never had a bad suggestion we were more than happy with her work. She is kind and caring which keeps you relaxed and even when things go a bit wrong she is on hand to help out and keep things calm. We are both extremely happy with the result and would and are already suggesting her as a photographer. I honestly don’t think we could have picked a better photographer. Thank you so much for all your help we both really appreciate it."
" We had nine months to plan our wedding, which at times was somewhat stressful!! The easiest decision we made by far, was choosing Natalie to be our photographer. From my first enquiry, she was attentive and so helpful. I wasn’t sure what we really wanted to achieve on the day and had never really given the locations and different styles of photography much thought, but Natalie had it all planned down to a tee!
We arranged a pre-wedding meet where we sat with coffee and cake like old friends talking through not only the wedding plans, but also the love story behind it. I really feel that she went above and beyond to really get to know us and make us feel at ease.
On the big day, Natalie was there on time and delivered everything and more than we had discussed. I hate having my photo taken but she guided me through the day with her expertise and I felt totally relaxed in her hands. I have to say, I barely noticed she was at the ceremony, which I guess is a good thing! She blended in amongst friends and family throughout the day and took some truly stunning shots.
We have had so many comments on how friendly and approachable she was from our guests, I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better service.
The photographs are better than I could have ever imagined and are taking pride of place all over my house! She captured every moment of our amazing wedding day (even the ones I had forgotten!)
Natalie Hamilton Photography comes with our gold seal of approval. Mr & Mrs Harton."
