I want the connection,
Hiring Naba as our wedding photographer was one of our best planning related decisions! I knew from the start that great photos would be a priority for me, and man did Naba deliver! We were blown away with the quality of both our engagement and wedding photos. She's so, so talented, on top of being very professional and down-to-earth. My husband and I don't always know how to act in front of a camera, so we were pleasantly surprised that Naba instantly put us at ease. She really managed to capture not just our wedding, but our style of intimacy as a couple. I'll always be grateful for that.

Naba is the most down to earth, kind, fun photographer EVER. Her personality really puts you at ease instantly. She did our engagement photos and our wedding photos and both times we were utterly stunned by what she captured. She made us feel so comfortable every step of the way. It wasn't just someone behind the camera taking pictures from an outside perspective, she interacted with everyone and everyone was having fun/ loving her. Unfortunately now I'm left with trying to figure out what we can have her take pictures of next because we already miss her! We look forward to working with you again. If you are wondering whether you should hire Naba, stop wondering and do it. You won't regret it. Go check out her amazing Instagram! Thank you so much for giving us experiences we will never forget.

Naba was incredible! We chose her based on her social media photos, we really liked her style. When we reached out to her we were definitely sold with her attitude! Naba responds quickly, and she is super fun! She obviously loves what she does. She made my husband and I feel very comfortable being photographed, which is something we are not used to. She spend a lot of time upfront getting to know us so we would feel more familiar with her when it was time to take photos, and I think that was really helpful for our comfort levels. She also took time to meet us at both the rehearsal dinner space and the wedding venue to see both places before the day of. She came early and stayed late, and most importantly, the photos are INCREDIBLE! I love the style, editing, and realness she was able to capture. Naba must be very fast too - because it was just her, but she somehow managed to capture all angles of our ceremony and reception! Our wedding venue even got her number after to be able to give to people getting married in the future as a recommendation because they enjoyed working with her as well. I highly recommend Naba for your wedding or event, she was wonderful and professional in every way.

Initial Call: Let’s get to know each other! Tell me what you love about each other, the proposal story (I live for these!!), show me pictures of your furbabies, and tell me what your hopes are for your day! It is important to me to be someone you can rely on professionally, but I also hope to be someone you can rely on as a friend throughout this! I genuinely believe my favorite photos exist because of vulnerability and openness between me and my couples.
Timeline: Once I have an idea of what you are looking for we can build out a rough timeline! This does not have to be set in stone but for the initial call its a great way to figure out how many hours you might need me for and to help choose a package for you!
Booking: To get your date locked in I will have you babes sign a contract and pay the initial 50% nonrefundable retainer, the rest will be due thirty days before your wedding day! (If you need a personalized payment plan please let me know!) And then we insert a thirty second dance party because we just became the dream team! Woohoo!!
I treat every couple uniquely, so much of the art exists within the both of you and what you bring to the table. I would describe my style as something found between a cinematic moment and a candid caught on an old film disposable. I want your photos to feel timeless, but also for you to know I take the time to craft something out of not just the moments and the emotions but the light, the colors, the composition. It is all a dance that goes seamlessly together in my mind.
I promise I won’t ever leave you with pterodactyl arms asking “what do I do with my hands” haha!! My goal is to guide you into natural poses that align with your personalities and make you feel most you! I will tell you where to go, what to do, but I also will find a happy place that allows you to be yourselves and goof off or snuggle up and just play and enjoy these couple hours together.
I am based out of Portland, OR but I am definitely down to travel wherever your love takes you! I have been so blessed to follow my couples from Portland all the way to Europe, Japan, South America, and more. Travel fuels me just as much as love, and it is such a special experience getting to combine the two!
I honestly shoot 99% of my weddings myself! I find that working alone allows me the space to move as I need to and I get all the angles I would expect from a second shooter. The only time that I would absolutely recommend a second shooter is if you are planning on getting ready at two separate locations and our timeline isn’t set up to allow me enough time to travel between the two! If you have any questions about this let me know and we can definitely discuss what a quote for this would be if you are interested in one!
