Photos for me are the important thing about the wedding. They are going to be the proof of our love, the tangible item we get to look back on for years and years to come.
My fiancé and I are planning a destination wedding for Las Vegas in spring of 2016. We live in Texas and we felt the pressure of finding just the right photographer online. We couldn't ask friends of family for recommendations, we could only rely on what we saw and read online. It is with that in mind that I write this review, so that it will be able to help you too.
In scouring the internet, I kept seeing these stunning, beautiful, heartfelt images on a few sites. I kept saying, I want to us look like that, or goodness, her makeup is gorgeous...I hope I can be that pretty. After a while I realized the one thing that all of the photos that wowed me had in common - The Studio N.
Natalie and Brandon are without a doubt the kindest, most loving couple, who love what they do. They are talented. They are professional. And, they are the best I have ever found.
I reached out to The Studio N to see if they could do our engagement photos while my fiancé and I would be in Vegas to determine venue location and date. We went over Labor Day, and I knew they were probably already booked, but I just had to try! Natalie and Brandon agreed to do our engagement photo shoot on a day that they normally take off for themselves. They understood we were on a tight schedule and we wanted to take advantage of being out there without having to make another special trip. I was amazed that they valued our time, and would be willing to do something so special for us.
Fast forward to the day of the engagement photos. I will be honest, I was a wreck. I was nervous about my hair, unsure of what my makeup would look like (Natalie is amazing and it is so rare to find a photographer with her skill of makeup artistry), and above all I was nervous because photos are SO not my fiancé's idea of a good time. But Natalie and Brandon put us at ease immediately. They took the time to get to know us. Find out what makes us tick as a couple, understand our sense of humor so they could make us laugh. Every little thing that they could do to make the day as fun and memorable as possible, they did.
My photos are amazing. Better than I ever dreamed of. They are sweet, romantic and funny. I don't know why I was ever nervous about the shoot. Natalie and Brandon are the absolute best. I can't wait for our wedding day to see what they are able to capture on that special day. If it is anything like what I have already experienced with The Studio N, it is going to surpass my every expectation.

Studio N Photography is amazing! My husband and I had the great pleasure to work with Studio N for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made. We aren't used to working with photographers, but Natalie and Brandon are true professionals and had no problem working their magic and and capturing all of our best moments. They blended right in and made us feel comfortable on a day when nerves can run high. Their image quality is superb, and their vision for shots is nothing but beautiful. Their teamwork, promptness and communication are second to none. Their galleries are very user friendly and allow us to experience our special day all over again. We entrusted them with a job where many would take shortcuts, but Studio N Photography exceeded all of our expectations. Studio N Photography is truly a sound choice if you are looking to work with the best and friendliest team to capture your special event. Our wedding images are secretly the envy of our all friends and family, and everyone has been asking which photographer we worked with. We are proud to say we worked with Studio N Photography, and will cherish our images forever. Thank you for your great work!

Natalie and Brandon are a magical team! They not only are able to capture absolutely gorgeous photographs of your most special moments, but they also are a true joy to work with. Their personalities make the experience effortless and positive and their work demonstrates how truly talented they are. Natalie is also a genius with makeup! I still am not sure how she made me look that good! Aside from saying yes to my fiance, choosing Natalie and Brandon to capture my wedding was the best decision I ever made. I respect my father's artistic eye so I ran Natalie and Brandon's work by him to see what he thought of their photographs. His following response was spot on: "I just checked out the photog site ... Wow! I mean, Wow!. I am i.m.p.r.e.s.s.e.d. (and jealous of her craft). She not only takes pictures, she adds dimensions to the subject(s) and event(s) she is taking pictures of. This begins with her innate ability to add the dimension of the art and artistic expression to her photograhy, a value added by iteself (many photographers can capture a wedding on film and memorialize it but not in an artistic way). But, she also captures "poignancy" (if that is a word), in some cases leveraging what is already there and making it more vivid but in others creating additional emotion beyond the subject itself (e.g., she makes you stop and think about the moment, stare at it, savor it, and dwell on it rather than just look at it and move on to the next photograph). This is the difference between taking a piece of food and swallowing it versus taking a bite of a thoughtfully prepared meal, chewing it, savoring the juices, and closing your eyes and enjoying the aftertaste before taking the next bite. The difference between glugging wine and savoring it. And, at the risk of over analyzing someone else's work, she seems to be able to add the dimension of story, not just the obvious one - the wedding - but subplots and mini-scenes like getting ready, the faces of the kids, vignettes with the entourage, laughter, tears, and an empty pair of shoes. All just wonderful! Marvelous! I now don't know which I am looking more forward to ... the wedding or the pictures of it (we might have to hurry up the first to get to the second!). Great, wonderful, magnificent choice." I think that just about says it all!

Studio N was the BEST! We honestly couldn't of picked better. We got married at the Las Vegas Paiute reservation and they had their photos displayed on the wall. My husband has told me he wished we could have that great of a photographer but they would probably be too expensive and we wouldn't be able to do it. When we contacted Natalie and Brandon they told us their prices and we couldn't beat it!!! Natalie really made me feel like a princess the day of, and was even capturing moments as she was doing my makeup. Meanwhile, Brandon was in the boys locker room capturing their moments which got me double coverage!! I seriously am so happy I was able to get them. They are very passionate in what they do and they truly care about getting the BEST photos. They try their best to make everything as creative as possible. We had our Chevelle parked at the venue and they helped us set it up with the mountain views in the back and they turned out AMAZING. Overall, everything couldn't have been more perfect. They made everything so stress-free and my makeup that Natalie did turned out flawless. Thank you so much for making our day a fairytale! <3-Brea & Jeremy Goff
Natalie and Brandon are the absolute perfect team! Natalie is very upbeat and bubbly, while Brandon is super sweet and very calming. They balance each other so well. They are both incredibly adorable, and have such passion and drive for their work! They take their work very seriously, and try to make sure that their client is 100% satisfied and happy, not to mention always very punctual as well. I live in Seattle, and I had a destination wedding in Las Vegas. Having to plan everything from far away was very nerve wracking. However, when I first met Natalie and Brandon, we were at ease because we knew that we chose the right photographers. Natalie is a great communicator and is always there when I needed her whether by phone, text, or e-mail. They are both very personable and have such fun, outgoing personalities. We could tell the dedication, and passion that they had for their career when we first met them in person for our engagement shoot. They are perfectionists, and will stop at nothing to get the shots that you want (we did a sparkler shoot at night which spelled out the word LOVE) which is our absolute favorite photo! Working with them was so easy going because they made you feel like family or great friends. We had never done a professional photo shoot prior to our wedding, but it was absolutely fun for both our wedding and our engagement photos--we had a great time! There was always a lot of laughs, and they made it incredibly easy and relaxing even though we were visibly nervous most of the time! Natalie is also a wonderful makeup artist as well! She nailed the wedding look that I was going for, and I had quite a few compliments! So, that's another bonus! We are so incredibly thankful to have found them, and they made everything so much more special! The photos that they take are incredible, and we have gotten lots of compliments. Thank you so much Natalie and Brandon, you guys are amazing! We love Studio N!!! =) ~ Bill and Silvia
Words can not truly express the appreciation my heart feels when I look at my family photos. As a single mother of four kids, I have a deep seeded desire to stop time. Every month and then year reveals so much change, growth, and character development in my loved ones. I chose Natalie and Brandon precisely for their artistic ability to capture a fleeting moment. These two are warm, joyful, and professional beyond measure. They actually showed me what a pleasure it is to receive deep quality attention. It was so meaningful to feel that our family session was just as special and worthy of details (I couldn’t have thought of) as a wedding day.To be perfectly honest, my kids were not looking forward to our photo session. I was a little worried that 1 out of 5 faces was going to blow a beautiful picture pose each time. Natalie has a great sense of humor and has an uncanny ability to put all five of us at easy, letting me feel confident that she would make any adjustments needed and I could enjoy the process. Studio N Photography produced the most amazing outcome in our family photos. They captured the essence of my heart and projected it exquisitely for our eyes to appreciate daily! I expected beauty from the session. But what I received was the visible heart beats of love, adoration, laughter, unity, pride, protection, and joy! What I feel for my kids was made visible by Natalie and Brandon. Time may keep moving, changing, and growing us but thanks to Studio N Photography’s passion, we now have a tangible expression of love, devotion, and celebration we all feel for our family. “If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.”~Natalie P.Thank you, Eryn F.
