Dusting off for 2012 | Janesville Wisconsin Portrait & Wedding Photographer

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged.

2 months to be exact.

Wow.

So I’m dusting things off & getting things started again.

During the buys season it gets quite difficult to keep up with workflow & posting sneak peeks on Facebook, so often the BLOG takes a back seat.

My goal for 2012 is for that to change, to be a better blogger.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be catching up on some BLOG posts both portrait & wedding, stay tuned.

Also wanted to let you know over the next couple weeks/months I’m excited to roll out Natale Photography’s brand new website & BLOG that I’m hard at work with right now.

For the most up to date images in my portfolio please swing by Facebook or shoot me an email, I’d be happy to email you a current slideshow!

In the meantime watch for some new BLOG posts coming out this week, one today in fact.

We are into full swing Wedding booking season for both 2012-2013.  We are a little over half booked for 2012 & anticipating that we’ll be fully booked by the start of Wedding Season in May.  If you are still looking for a photographer call the studio to set up your personal Bridal Consultation.

Speaking of Weddings, here is a small iPhone pic of my booth this past weekend @ the EngagedMilwaukee Bridal Show

Change is a comin’ for Natale Photography

I released a very small sneak peek of the new marketing rolling out in the next few months.

New branding.  New website.  New blog.

Fresh design & Fresh ideas.

What do you think?  Like it?  Love it?  Gotta have it?  {ha, that’s from Coldstone Creamery}

I’m so excited, it’s been a long over due.

So with that I decided to be a little sneaky, just put it up on the BLOG & held a little impromptu contest to see who pays attention to the details…

It was fun, to read the responses I received both on FB & via e-mail. {thank-you for those that participated}

We had over 25 entries & three people that included all the same amount of detail in their answers {& some details that actually weren’t even new} & the person that was randomly selected as a winner was :

Kiara Krohn = CONGRATS

Contact the studio for information on how to use your $75 studio credit!

Would love to hear your thoughts on the new logo?

Friday August 19 2011

Venue | Veteran’s Terrace, Burlington Wisconsin

Entertainment | Live band : Kind of a Big Deal

To view Chris & Crystal’s Chicago Engagement Session, click here.

One of my favorite places I’ve shot at this year has got to be the Veteran’s Terrace in Burlington Wisconsin.

C & C had thee absolute perfect day for an outside ceremony.

I can’t really put into words how cute these two are together.  Simply put, they make my job look easy.

C & C opted to have a first look which was just lovely & allowed us ample shooting time that afternoon before the ceremony & even a bit afterwards to head downtown Burlington to find a oh so fabulous BLUE wall.

The reception, was laid back, fun & was led by the boys from “Kind of a Big Deal” band out of Janesville.

WOW, they were amazing & it was a blast watching everyone enjoy themselves!

Chris & Crystal : best wishes to you as you start your life together, it was such an honor to be a part of your big day {stephanie}

Megan + Andy | Married | Janesville & Beloit Wedding Photographer

Megan & Andy Lewis

Saturday August 6, 2011

I can not say enough wonderful things about Megan, Andy & their families.

Really & truly it shows in their relationships & the guests that attended their wedding & everyone that knows this family.

It was so much fun to document & Megan & Andy had a beautiful August day to celebrate with everyone.

I just love love love M & A’s story.  They have literally known each other forever & dated long long ago in grade school & even went to a school dance together.

They went their separate ways & started dating again a few years later, and the rest as they say, is history.

This past year during our time together it has been such a pleasure to get to know Megan & Andy.

Thanks again for a wonderful day & keep in touch!

Also a big thank-you to the fabulous Andrea, from Andrea Paradowski Photography for second shooting with me that day, she did a fabulous job!

It consisted of images from her parents relationship because Megan & Andy were married on her parents’ anniversary.

Such a sweet sweet family!

July 30, 2011

Lake Mills, Wisconsin

I’ve known Karen now for at least 5 years & it was such a pleasure to work with her & Will on their wedding day.

Karen : you were just simply stunning, the dress, the details, everything.  Fabulous job friend.

Will : your smile is just so dang contagious & I couldn’t help but smile every time you would look over @ your new wife

Lake Mills Golf Course gives way to many different opportunities for portraits & thanks to a few fabulous Golf Card drivers we were able to take advantage of them all!

K & W had a late afternoon/early evening wedding under a big flowing tree with the wind blowing from behind.

The day was full of laughter & special special moments, shared with friends & family.

Thanks for having me apart of your day K & W, enjoy all of your  images!

Francine & Kyle

July 16, 2011

Ceremony | Rock Prairie United Presbyterian Church

Venue | Pontiac Convention Center

Catering & Decorations | Best Events

Hair | Robin’s Nest Salon

Video | Frogman Productions

Engagement Session | Kyle & Francine E-session {BLOG}

Francine & Kyle were married on a fabulous summer day, which I was so thankful for considering our E-session was a wee bit chilly that day.

They both come from farming families & so in planning for the portraits that day it was very important to both of them that we were outside.

We wanted the images to reflect them, who they were & what their relationship is about.

Luckily the ceremony was located at a Rock Prairie which is out in the country & surrounded by plenty of farm land, it was so perfect for F & K.

F & K are surrounded by large families & a great group of friends that care for them both & love them, which made our job that day, much easier.

We started out @ Robin’s Nest Salon in Milton for the girls’ hair & headed to Francine’s house to get ready.

We soon met Kyle @ the church where they had their first look prior to the ceremony.

I love it when couples choose this option because it allows us so much extra time for portraits.  We were able to do all Family & Bridal party portraits prior to the ceremony.

The reception was at the Pontiac Convention center in Janesville & looked so elegant decorated in the Black & White color theme they had chosen for their wedding.

So classic, so beautiful.

We had a blast documenting your day Francine & Kyle!
