Meet natalie Jayne
I’m Natalie Jayne, a Virginia wedding photographer based in Richmond and Charlottesville. I specialize in weddings and anniversaries, and pride myself in crafting imagery on film.
I weave together a mixture of documentary moments, portraits, and beautifully composed details to tell the story of your wedding day. This form of visual storytelling will help you remember not only what it looked like, but also
how it felt.
We are so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Natalie and her team for our wedding this past October. Natalie was so responsive, flexible, and accommodating of our huge family and long weekend of celebrations. She was an absolute joy to work with, our entire family and wedding party commented on the amazing energy she brought to our wedding weekend. We didn’t use Natalie for our engagement shoot, so she came to our rehearsal dinner instead (despite having a very full day with us the next day too), which was so special.
We feel like our wedding was captured so beautifully and in a cohesive, full way. We have had the photos back for a few months now, and continue to pour over them. We feel so lucky to have had a photographer like Natalie and her amazing team, and hope to work with them again in the future. Thank you, Natalie!
"We couldn’t imagine our weekend without her, and the photos were absolutely perfect, beyond our expectations."
If you're on the fence about booking Natalie as your wedding photographer, this is your sign to book her immediately! She shot our wedding in August as well as our engagement photos last year and to say she's phenomenal is such an understatement! Not only does she have the kindest soul but her photos are STUNNING.
We normally feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera but she is so amazing at making the process so much fun you aren't even thinking about how you look in front of the camera. We still talk about how much fun our engagement photos were over a year ago. Our pictures are all so natural and look effortless and she captured the scenery around us beautifully as well! They truly are the most beautiful photos we have ever seen and we're so glad we have these photos to look back on and remember this time in our lives. We highly encourage anyone and everyone to book her for your wedding!!
"She truly captured the energy and joy from our day as well as the love between my husband and I, our family, and friends. "
The whole process from the very beginning was stress free as she is very responsive and professional. She strives to capture your day as you envision and has a questionnaire to help do just that. She truly is a very talented photographer and not to mention, she is very personable. She has such a sweet, loving, fun personality and it truly radiates. Even through her emails!
Although we did not officially meet until the day of the wedding, it felt as if we had been friends for a long time. While taking photographs, my husband and I felt at ease and so comfortable in front of the camera. She gave great direction as far as posing and we had such a fun, memorable time. I truly cannot recommend her services enough!
"We are able to relive our wedding day through her photographs and they are absolutely beautiful and breathtaking and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. "
Ah, I cannot say enough about Natalie! She is not only passionate about her profession, but she's GOOD at it too. She puts an incredible amount of thought and skill into her sessions. My fiance and I were both nervous about our engagement shoot (it was genuine anxiety....). Immediately after shaking hands with Natalie, we felt right at home. After our session was over, we both agreed we'd love to do that again sometime, like whaat?!
Our film was that same "at home, relieved" feeling when we scrolled through our album- she captured us as a couple and we could not have been happier. The film turned out breathtaking. You can rest assure that if you invest in her business, she will in turn invest in you as a couple. I am over-the-moon excited for anyone who chooses Natalie to be a part of their wedding experience!!
"Contrary to what many say- there is a difference in photographer style; I believe that she is the very best of them all."
Personable, caring, extremely talented. WE LOVE THIS LADY. She cared about our marriage. Let that sink in, she drove us around the day of, gave us top-quality photos, and, while doing a better job than we could ever imagine, captured the true story and emotion of our wedding. She is so personable it was almost like she was family.
To top it off, as a couple we ran into complications due to work soon after our wedding, Natalie was there waiting to deliver the album (film and digital) communicating with us on a personal level, to make sure the moment was right for us to see her work.
"She did a better job than we could ever imagine, captured the true story and emotion of our wedding. "
Best photographer ever! Natalie is the best! From our engagement session to our wedding day shots, She takes time to get to know you as a person and as a couple, and its reflected in the quality and genuineness of the pictures. She put us first and made sure that we were taken care of and comfortable behind the camera on our wedding day first and foremost.
As for the quality of her product - we are obsessed with our pictures, and they will be timeless treasures to remember our day!! Cannot recommend her highly enough!!
"Natalie went above and beyond to make my husband and I feel comfortable, encouraged, and even beautiful!"
Natalie is the sweetest most generous person! Our session was everything that we hoped it would be and more! Our pictures are absolutely beautiful! Natalie’s talent and heart shine through every image. From the very beginning of the process she was kind, informative, and prompt.
Working with her was an absolute joy! Natalie is not just am amazing photographer, she is an upstanding and reliable person - a woman of integrity. Those qualities are reflected in her work. I highly recommend Natalie!
"Natalie’s kindness and joyful disposition put us at ease and helped us feel free to be completely ourselves in front of the camera. "
