Natalie was a pleasure to work with and our pictures are amazing!! We hired her over the phone because we were in Chicago with our wedding taking place in Atlanta. She was referred to us by a friend who met her at a wedding, she liked her and her work. Natalie worked very hard, she arrived early and stayed late. We had 188 guests and she was able to get great shots of everyone. Thank you Natalie, you are wonderful, we will treasure your pictures forever!! If you need a DJ, you should hire her husband Rich, we hired him and he was excellent too!!

Natalie was a wonderful and experienced photographer. Her professionalism and care were a great blessing to us. Being photographed by Natalie was more than just a session, it was an experience. She brought joy and laughter to a very nervous groom and calm to expectant bride. We were not just objects to be photographed, but participants in the creative process. The photos we received were like little time capsules that we can always look back on with joy. It was overall a great experience. We could tell that Natalie enjoyed creating life long memories with us. We would readily recommend Natalie to others. Check her out!!!

We were very happy with Natalya Grove Photography. We were unsure about hiring a photographer given some specific concerns and desires we had. Natalya's husband, Rich, met with us to discuss our concerns and show us his portfolio. He was very patient in addressing our questions, walking us through the process, and showing us prior weddings he photographed. Rich was also prompt on our wedding day and was very personable in how he interacted with us and our guests. He had some suggested poses for us throughout the day, but he was also open to suggested poses and shots from us and our guests. Natalya edited our images, and we received a link to our online photos within two weeks after our wedding. We also received CDs of our photos that were print ready with full copyright privileges. It was so nice to receive the images so quickly after the wedding, and there were no surprises. We highly recommend Natalya Grove to other couples looking for a wedding photographer!

We had an excellent experience with Natalie. She is highly professional while also being warm and kind. She responded to my initial inquiry within 24 hours - and we met shortly thereafter. She explained her services, answered all our questions and promptly filled out all our required paperwork after receiving our deposit. She arrived at the church promptly (and it was quite far from her residence). She was very discrete in taking pictures during the ceremony. She captured the essence of our church and took wonderful photos of our guests. She found the reception with no problem (it was 30 minutes away) and took a lot of pictures in that locale as well. Natalie has a sharp eye for color and composition. I received my pictures within two weeks of the ceremony, which allowed me to get announcements with pictures printed timely. All in all, a five star experience.

Natalie (A.K.A. Natalya) Grove is an amazing photographer! We highly recommend her as a wedding photographer! We just received our pictures and we are thrilled with the results. We sent her specific shots that we wanted her to take and she did it all just like we specified. Now comes the hard part, we have to pick what we want to put in our album, she gave us 1135 pictures. Natalie is a pleasure to work with, very sweet and professional. Her husband Rich is a great DJ, we have reviewed him on his site. Thanks to both Natalie & Rich for making our wedding great and memorable! Kathy & Blake Holkstra Married 4-7-2013, Roswell, GA

Natalie was the perfect photographer. We hired both her as our photographer & her husband as our DJ & they are fantastic pair. Natalie was so organized, even providing us with a suggested photos list and asking us to add anything else we knew we definitely wanted. This was great for me as a bride because I didn't have to tell her what family or friend photos I definitely wanted on the day of because she already knew. From the time she showed up to the time we left the reception, her camera was going; and yet, we barely knew she was there! She just slipped into the scene and did her job without stopping our fun. She was sensitive to the stresses of the day and was a pleasure to be around. The photos from the wedding came in quickly & we were so pleased with not only the quantity of the photos, but the quality. They were truly exquisite and she photographed some really specials moments. We would definitely work with Natalie again!

We are extremely happy with our wedding albums, and pictures! Natalya was a pleasure to work with, she got all of the shots we wanted (from our shot list) and gave us 1321 images!!!! Her online viewing is great for my family in Germany and California. Her pricing is the best we found. She really knows how to use her cameras and lenses. She is skilled. We highly recommend Natalya!

Natalie is not only reasonably priced but was able to capture many special moments of our wedding. I was amazed at everything she was able to capture seeing that she had to go to many locations at the resort to get all of the photos I wanted. Her ability to control everyone and get the pictures done in a timely fashion was impressive. My husband and I had 18 ppl in our wedding party so it was a big group to shoot and she was perfect at commanding without being pushy. She has a way of understanding the couple and what kind of pictures we wanted to be taken. I love her different ways of capturing the little details of the wedding. After it was over my husband and I were discussing how we didn't even know where she was during the ceremony. Looking at what she did we were impressed with how she was able to get so many shots and go unnoticed. We also got the pics back quickly. Natalie is the way to go!

I am a professional photographer who has photographed weddings for 12 years, (before moving into fashion photography). I was obviously very selective when choosing our wedding photographer. Natalie is a gifted photographer, she shoots with the best equipment, she is a PRO. Our images are unbelievable!! My mother cried when she saw our pictures, Natalie really "captured our day". The only advice I can give her is to increase her rates, she is way underpaid for what she delivers. Thank you SOOOO much Natalie, we will be in touch! Get ready for the referrals!

We initially chose Natalie because her price fit within our budget and her portfolio was very good. Natalie did our engagement photos and did a great job. You would never know that we were freezing during the shoot. LOL. The wedding photos were beautiful and she captured all the special moments very well. I was able to send photos to my grandmother who wasn't able to attend and she was able to feel like she was there. Natalie was a true professional, polite, timely, not intrusive and stayed with us to the very end. My in-laws were very impressed with her. I would and have recommended her.

Natalie was a great photographer to work with from the very beginning. She was professional and friendly during our meeting and we picked her for the great quality of her pictures. Her pricing fit with our budget as well! After we booked Natalie, we spoke on the phone a few more times and felt very comfortable going into the wedding. The day of, she was on time and ready to get started right away. She was everywhere taking pictures, but not intrusive. We ended up with a mix of posed and candid pictures, but my favorite part as the bride is that I looked amazing in every single picture! I had asked for some photoshopping if necessary, since my skin is not perfect, which I am sure helped, but I think she is just a great photographer! I wish that we had been a little more creative with the wedding party pics, but we were really short on time, so we got what we could. Natalie was also prompt about getting us the pictures and we would definitely recommend her.

Natalie Grove was a terrific and dedicated photographer for my recent wedding. I am a photographer myself and had high expectations with a fairly low budget. When I heard about Natalie, I thought the price was too good to be true. But after talking to her and looking at her website I knew she was a perfect match. Natalie was very professional and was excited to hear I was a photographer and that I wanted her to be creative and not be afraid to express herself through the photographs. Natalie effortlessly blended into our wedding. She made herself known when she had to but was discreet during the special moments. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and I had my DVDs within 2 weeks of the wedding! Everyone who's seen the pictures has raved about them and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. A friend of mine who just got engaged has already asked for Natalie's information for her wedding. Natalie is fantastic!
