it’s nice to meet you

I’m Natasha Dale 

photographer & adventurer

I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I picked up my first camera at the age of 10. It opened my eyes to the beauty that surrounds us, whether that’s the majesty of the mountains or dewdrop on a rose. I love to tell stories through the lens and I believe that having photographs taken on your special day should be easy and fun! My clients tell me how much they love their photographs but also that they enjoyed the whole photographic experience. That makes my heart glow 🙂

My photography errs on the side of soft, romantic and happy, with an occasional little goofy thrown in for good measure. If you are not used to having your portraits taken or you become self-conscious in front of the lens, I feel you! I specialize in making you feel at ease. I was born near London, England and knew that I always wanted to explore the world. I worked for a major airline which allowed me to travel the globe and eventually settle in the USA. As soon as I discovered Asheville 7 years ago I knew that I had found my forever home.

I wake up every day inspired by the lushness of the Blue Ridge Mountains, its amazing wildlife and stunning waterfalls. It’s a photographers paradise and it would be my honor to photograph you in this exquisite part of the world. I’m also available for travel, please contact me to discuss. It would be my pleasure to tell YOUR story.

Whether it’s capturing your ‘Something Borrowed, Something Blue’ or the sweet sandals that you are getting married in, it’s important to capture the intricate details of your special day”

My story:

the reason why

I do what I do

I know what it’s like to have a destination wedding and not have the opportunity to meet your photographer in advance! In August 2005, I eloped to Australia to get married. I knew that I wanted a simple ceremony on the Great Barrier Reef but I still wanted quality photographs and memories to cherish forever.
My husband, Alistair and I were a bundle of nerves and joy. I had to get up at 04.00 to start getting ready as the catamaran ride would take a few hours, but it was worth it! We had reached out a few weeks prior via email to the wedding officiant and her photographer partner and felt a warmth and connection emanating from them; we knew that we in the right hands. We wanted people who would help make our special day even more incredible, by being kind, warm and funny and those are MY goals now every time I pick up the camera lens. You’ve taken the time to read my story, now I’d like to get to know yours!
I encourage you to reach out to me so that we can start the conversation and make sure that I am the right fit for your special day.
