Hi, I'm Natalie. I'm an International Wedding Lifestyle Photographer living in the nautical town of Annapolis, Maryland. I've had the privilege of documenting weddings from New York City, to Seattle, Punta Cana and beyond. And I truly believe I have the best clients in the world.

I believe in creating something that is enduring and true. I believe in eternalizing the moment, in freezing the most precious days of our lives for our children and grandchildren. A photograph is so much more than pixels within a frame, it represents a fleeting time in our lives that we will never get back. I will forever cherish the images of my childhood, the sweet embrace of my grandmother, the way the world looked when I was four feet tall. I find comfort and strength in knowing that photography is forever. It is eternal. It is enduring. It is true.

The power of photography has never ceased to amaze me. The ability to fit a couple's love story within a single frame, to shape the way we see one another - it's quite an incredible thing. My photographic style is designed to be fun and comfortable. I love making my clients laugh, spending a few hours in the great outdoors, just capturing the sunset. I live for the clients that become my friends. The relationships that last years after the weddings are over. Read less

No words can even begin to express how happy I am that we chose Natalie to document our 20 year vow renewal. As a wedding photographer myself I knew that choosing the right person was essential. I've known Natalie for many years in the industry but it's different when you become the bride (again!) and Natalie surpassed everything I could of wished for. Her sweetness, professionalism and simple joy to be around made our day easy and even more special. My husband not a huge fan of photos did awesome and even said how much he enjoyed everything. Natalie, not only as a friend, colleague but now also a client, I can't say enough wonderful things about you. You are a true blessing! Thank you for making me feel as special as I did even after 20 years of marriage!

Natalie was a FANTASTIC photographer at our wedding. She is so talented and really knows all the great spots for photos in Annapolis. I selected her based on the pictures on her website, but my first conversation with her confirmed that she was the right choice - she is incredibly sweet and encouraging, which is very important for your wedding. My wedding photos are starting to come out, and I LOVE them. Can't wait to see the rest!

Natalie is hands down the best photographer I have ever come across. Selecting Natalie was a no brainer for me, and I knew to jump fast before she booked our date. She is that good!! She is not only an amazing photographer but an incredible person which is important on a wedding day, as the photographer is with you more than your groom on the wedding day! I will and do recommend her to every person I know and will continue to do so. My wedding photos are even more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!! Thank you Natalie for the best photos we could ever ask for. We love you!

Natalie is amazing -- as a person and as a photographer. I cannot say enough about her fantastic work. I had secretly been following her blog for years before I got engaged, and knew that I wanted her as my wedding photographer. As soon as we met Natalie we knew we would hire her. Her excitement and passion for photography is obvious from the moment you meet her. She worked with us to put together an engagement session out of state- which was thrilling for my husband. And on the day of the wedding, I could not have asked for a better photographer. The way she finds amazing light and knows exactly how to pose the bride and the groom is incredible. She makes every one of her subjects look fantastic! We have already gotten so many compliments on the photographs that Natalie has taken. I would recommend her to all brides. She is amazing!

I'm not sure were to begin with my review because there are no words that can adequacy describe how amazing Natalie Franke is. First, l could start by saying that she is a beautiful person inside and out. She is the sweetest person you will ever met and it shows that she truly cares about her clients. She is extremely professional, responsive and so easy to work with. Second, her talent for photography is almost unnatural. Our wedding photos were incredible and everything I envisioned. Natalie has an eye for making even the simplest things beautiful and capturing a moment that can evoke emotion even months later. Just an amazing experience.

Natalie Franke is simply one of the best photographers out there. She is professional, sweet, and creative. She caught each detail, emotion, and moment that whirled right by us on our wedding day in her soft and beautifully lit photos. One of the stand out abilities of Natalie, is her ability to think on her feet and outside the box. When I forgot my garter, she came up with a great alternative right on the spot when she handed me a beer. When the groom found the beer under my dress and chugged it on one knee the crowd went wild. Natalie goes way beyond the roll of photographer, she is a top knotch creative genius and we simply cannot thank her enough.

I cannot even begin to express my love of photography... not only my love of photography, but my love of Natalie Franke's photography! For my wedding, THE single most important detail of planning was finding the perfect photographer for US. I searched high and low... and let me tell you, I spent nearly 3 months stalking wedding blogs/local photographers/magazines to find the photographer that we knew would represent our love story, best.

Natalie has the most upbeat spirit of anyone I have ever met. There is not one single thing that I asked for that she couldn't/wouldn't provide. Her whole goal is to provide the best experience for her clines, and she does just that! If you request it, she will make sure she does it for YOU. From the emails she sent coordinating both our engagement and wedding--to the gorgeous little packages that graced our doorsteps... there was not one detail that was missed.

There is no other photographer that will make you feel more at ease in front of the camera. There is no other photographer that will go out of his/her way to get the right shot, to get the right light (which I was personally obsessed with!!) or to show you that she truly cares about your experience. We are overjoyed that we were able to work with such talent on our wedding day and we honestly cannot wait to book another session with the very talented, and oh-so-sweet, Natalie Franke!

Thank you so much Natalie for your sweet words, your gorgeous photos and your warm heart!

There is no way that I can adequately express in words how magical our day was because of Natalie. Not only was she the sweetest person to work with (and her assistants Kate and Maddie), but her pictures are nothing short of amazing! It took me three tries yesterday before I could look at them all without crying (in happiness, of course). She truly captured the life and love that is our new, bigger family! When the wedding day started, she only knew Cory and I previously from our engagement session and first meeting. However, by the end of the night, she was so much more than that to everyone there. I am still hearing from family and friends how much they loved her and her assistants. I can't wait to share these pictures with them and she will be getting major business coming her way, so you better contact her soon. But, then again, I have a feeling she has quite the following already!

Natalie is an AMAZING photographer and a great person!! I am absolutely in LOVE with all of the photos from my wedding day. It truly was like having a friend there to take our pictures because Natalie is so sweet and personable. I was pretty nervous before seeing my husband for our first look and Natalie was so nice about it and kept making sure I was okay, which was so helpful for me. I let Natalie make decisions about where we took pictures and I'm so happy I did! Our photos turned out absolutely gorgeous - Natalie is so talented and so hard working. I really can't say enough good things about her. I have gotten so many compliments on my photos and I truly am so happy. Book her early girls!! :) ... Thank you Natalie!!
