If you are looking for a photojournalist look no farther. As you can see on my website, I shoot in a documentary/photojournalistic style. My goal is to tell your story, your day, in stunning and memorable photographs. I capture the real joyful moments of the event in addition to creating interesting formal groupings. I create my albums like I have created my books: I tell a story with my photographs.
No other photographer has the experience I have. For over 20 years I've specialized in people, weddings and wildlife. My magazine clients include National Geographic Magazine, Smithsonian, Audubon, and Time. I have had three coffee table books published of my photography. My fine art prints are in many corporate, public and private collections. I was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and have won over 200 other awards. You can read about my recent award, Photo Person of the Year, at the following link.
As you compare photographers remember that you are not just comparing prices, hours and fees. You are looking for experience, an artistic vision, an eye, a style that you want to memorialize your day. You will be married only once.
I work with an associate who is also shooting during parts of the day. I book only one wedding per day so that I can be totally devoted to you. All of my packages include an album. I offer the latest digital magazine style album in addition to the traditional style album. Most of my packages include engagement sessions, cd slide shows and online proofing.
Before I book a wedding I ask that we meet for a free consultation. That way we all will be able to get to know each other to make sure we are a good fit. During the consultation you and your fiancé can tell me more about your plans and dreams and I will show you some of my work.
And remember, after the guests have gone home, the flowers have wilted and the gown put away you are left with your memories and the album of photographs that tell the story of your wedding day. It is the first heirloom of your life together.
2004 awards to date: Award of Merit from the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International; two Awards of Excellence and one Exhibition Ribbon from the Seattle Professional Photographer¹s Association

"You rock!" Mary Jane B.
"Natalie's photographs turned my special day into a memory of a lifetime. All I ever hear when I show someone my wedding pictures is 'who did your photography?' And I tell them Natalie Fobes, hire her!" Kris Easterday.
"We could not have been more pleased with the photographs that Natalie took of our wedding day. She was able to perfectly capture exactly how we hoped the wedding would and more importantly, how it would feel. We enjoyed the ease of working with her before the actual day and appreciated her obvious experience when it came to dealing with less than perfect weather. She was a big part of what made our day absolutely perfect!" Kris G.
"Natalie was fun to work with and truly captured the essence, life, and beauty of our wedding day." Andrew and Tessa D.
"Christiaan and I really enjoyed working with you and thank you so much for being one of the only people who could calm my nerves that day!" Jules G.
