Washington DC Photographer

Specializing in documentary Wedding and Family Photography in the DMV area.

I’m Natasha. Writing about myself or even just talking about myself has never come easily to me. Maybe that’s why I love to have a camera in my hand, to put my words into images. Nonetheless, I can tell you three things about me to introduce myself.

  • I’m French, born and raised. As you can guess, I love wine (being from Burgundy, you have to!), cheese, mustard (being from Dijon, you have to!), the smell of lavender fields, the touch of mature grapes on a vineyard and my family and friends.

  • I’m a journalist as well. I work as a freelance writer and photographer. That is why my wedding photography style is very photojournalistic. That’s the way I learned photography and fell in love with it.

  • I am amazed all the time. By the little flower on the side of the road, the light that put a shine on a wall, a bird flying through a tree. Since I was a little girl, I observe life around me. Maybe that is why I picked up a camera to show people what I see, because I see things differently.

I love candid photos, the small moments between friends or two lovers (or all of them together!), the very short instant which nobody will remember if a camera wasn't around to catch it. See examples in the Wedding Gallery. I also specialize in Destination Wedding Photography in France and Europe.

Award-winning photographer

You can find me on WPJA.com (Wedding Photojournalist Association) where I have been awarded several times for my work. I am also a proud member of Fearless Photographers and Family Photojournalist Association. On my website, I explain what is a wedding photojournalist. As a photojournalist, I have won many international photo competitions, and have been selected for collective exhibitions in Detroit, Paris, Great Britain and Finland. 


I provide wedding photography for my clients in Washington DC. Our capital’s Nation is probably the best backdrop that you can hope for. Seriously! My favorite place to do engagement sessions without paying for a permit are the National Gallery of Art, Union Station, Union Market or Eastern Market. Neighborhoods are also a lot of fun! Georgetown of course, but Nova, Columbia Heights or Adams Morgan are also great places in DC to make beautiful memories in front of a camera.

I do also love to travel and capture wedding or family photographs in the cities of Alexandria, Silver Spring, many cites in Northern Virginia and Maryland, and the surrounding areas including but not limited to Baltimore, Annapolis, Ocean City, Virginia Beach, Charlottesville. I also provide Destination Wedding Photography in France, in the cities of Paris, Dijon, Lyon, Marseille, Arles, Avignon, wherever you are planning to get married on the East part of France.

If you are interested to see more, here are my personal projects that I ‘m working on when not doing wedding and family photography.
