10 Questions with Natasha Lamalle

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hello there! I'm Natasha Lamalle, a passionate storyteller and documentary-style photographer with over 15 years of professional experience. Born and raised in France, my heritage has instilled in me a deep appreciation for grand stories, hospitality, and creativity. My journey into the world of storytelling began with a Master's in Journalism from La Sorbonne, followed by a fulfilling career as a reporter for a local newspaper in Dijon. Through this experience, I discovered the power of a warm and friendly attitude in creating an environment where clients feel comfortable and at ease.

In 2010, I embarked on a new chapter of my life by meeting and marrying my American husband. Our wedding day became a celebration of the beautiful blend of cultures and traditions that define us, inspiring me to capture the uniqueness and personal essence of each couple I work with. The realization of the profound impact personal connections can have on photography led me to establish my own business. At my home studio, I invite clients into a space where we can share stories, build connections, and create images that truly reflect the essence of each individual. I believe that this approach results in some of the most cherished and authentic moments captured through my lens.

My multicultural journey as a bride continues to inspire me to connect with clients on a deeper level, understanding and respecting their diverse backgrounds. Through my lens, I aim to not only document moments but to tell stories that resonate with the hearts of those who entrust me with their memories.

My general pricing for a full-day coverage starts at 3950 but my average couple spends about 6000 by adding an engagement session and a second photographer.

6. Are you the wedding photographer who will be shooting on the wedding day? Who else is there in your team?

I don't have a travel fee.

My turnaround is between 4-6 weeks through a private online gallery.

By my contract, the first payment is non-refundable unless I am the one breaking the contract.
