Maybe you've never heard this term before, thats probably because I created it. A bridal shoot, as it's usually called, is a photoshoot done with only the bride to showcase every detail of your individual style in that stunning dress. This shoot is done traditionally before the wedding and is a good time to test run your dress, fit, movement, hair, makeup and accessories before the big day. Traditionally done in studio so as to keep the dress pristine but if shoot is after wedding, or for the risk takers, it can be done on location. When else are you going to look like this? Its like a goddess shoot in the ultimate outfit. This is something your entire family will look back on. This is not just another shoot and your not just another bride, this is art in all its forms. Bridal Art.
I limit the amount of weddings I take on to give my full attention to each individual bride and groom and all that it takes to make a wedding happen. Sometimes the wedding photographer becomes the day of coordinator, the time manager, assistant to the bride, and even the overall wedding planner. I have taken on this feat many a times to insure a flawless day with no stress on the couple. I ask for a shot list from the bride and groom to insure we get every shot that your heart desires. If you are not sure what you want I will asses your individual wedding and theme and take control of getting the shots I personally know you'll want. I also ask for contact info for the other individuals working the wedding to coordinate properly and to remove and hidden stressors before they come up. Remember that this day, even if its just a quick elopement, should be focused on whats in your heart and sharing that with this individual you've chosen to spend your life with. Everything else is not important anymore and will be handled properly and professionally by me and my team.
In the Print Shoppe you can find gift certificates and prints of all makes and sizes of my own work, photographing my many travel and other photographic artwork. This is also the link to view your own personal gallery after a shoot with me. Each gallery is private and requires a password. Through that gallery you are able to download and order your images. Turn over time for most shoots is 2 weeks, at that time I will send you a link to your gallery.
Artist Statement: The Night
Being awake in the hours that most are asleep is intriguing to me. The world is different and un-watched. The colors compliment the dark sky and invoke beauty in their silent vibrance. Seeing a city lit up at night for the first time is like discovering your lover loves you back. To capture this feeling I use soft focuses and long exposures because love is not sharp nor fast, and often is not true to reality.
Artist Statement: The Femme We are in the era of the goddess. The female as a powerful being. She is loving, seductive and strong at all the right times. You want her to love you and you want to battle at her side, not against her, because together you imagine you can rise above anything or anyone. Capturing the female in an iconic form is The Femme, but a goddess is not always alive in everyone and must be brought out individually. The hunt for truth in the beauty is an ongoing project of mine.
My name is Natalia Mills age 29, and I am a photographer. Growing up my family made two big moves at just the right moments in my life for me to understand change as a good thing. I then moved away to college to study photography in the most beautiful state side area I could find, Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs CO. Once out of college I wanted to literally see the world. I didn't have any money but that had never stopped me before. There is always another way and with that in mind I got a job working for the airlines. Using the flight benefits I started traveling as much as possible. Seeing the beauty of the world became self reflective and awakening. I feel most alive and most inspired by the earth so I pull energy from the earth and look out to what it sees. Us humans and cities taking it over, but then there is always beauty in the chaos and what rises above it. Blurring the cities into magical terrains and finding the beauty in every individual keeps me focused on the future and what we can become from this destruction. Thus The Night, The Femme and The Mind.
