Searching for a wedding photographer is nuts.

 

I remember sitting down and doing this for my own wedding. I had no idea how much this should all cost, what I should be looking for and where to even start. We just knew we wanted great photos.

When you book Native Among You Photography to shoot your wedding - you gain an advisor, an advocate and a friend who is so much more than just another vendor.

Engagements are where it all begins.

 

For most people, their engagement session is the first time they are in front of a professional camera with their significant other. Almost everyone starts a nervous wreck, but by the end of the night, we are laughing until we cry and couldn’t remember why we were so nervous. Every single Wedding Collection with Native Among You Photography includes a complimentary engagement session because I believe in them so much!
