A Few Comments from clients about Natalie

Taylor and Zach were married 1-25-19. They wrote this on The Knot on 2-25-19

"An absolute pleasure to work with them! Joe is responsive to any and all email inquiries and worked with us despite extreme budget constraints. Natalie our photographer for the event is an absolute rockstar. Photos came out beautifully and she was kind as could be even with any and all high demands. Would strongly recommend for ANY event, especially bridal! Got our photos back in record time and love every captured moment."

Holly and Frank were married 10-28-18, They wrote this 5-star review on the Knot 12-11-18

We had such a great experience with Studio One from beginning to end! Joe was always easy to get in contact with and sent us reminders to check in with our online account about specific photos that we wanted and other things. After a few meetings with various companies, we felt that Joe was the most genuine and truly interested in helping us get the best pictures of our wedding! Our photographer was Natalie. She was very easy-going from our first phone call to our big day! When I told her about a specific picture that I wanted taken, she was very realistic with me about the challenges we may face taking that picture which I appreciated! One thing that I VERY much appreciated as a Type-A Bride was that Natalie was very organized and not afraid to tell people what to do and where to stand to get the best picture. By the end of the night, Natalie was dancing through the crowd capturing the funny and cute pictures of all of our guests. We are thrilled with the way our pictures turned out and cannot thank Studio One and Natalie enough!

Heather and Ben were married 6-9-18. The wrote this 5 star review on wedding Wire 12-9-18:

Our photographer Natalie was awesome. She was super accommodating to our requests, going to the salon, our house, the church, and the reception hall to take photos. She had great photo ideas throughout that made our photo collection from the day super awesome. She did great making sure we were happy what photos were being taken and if there was anything else we wanted done. Would highly recommend!

Jessica and Nathan were married on 8-25-18. Jason and Natalie were their photographers. Here's the 5-star review they wrote on The Knot yesterday: 

"We had Jason, Natalie, and Joe (videographer). We could not have been more happy with how they all did. Jason especially did an incredible job, but all three were exceptional. Jason is truly great at what he does. He was very creative for the photo shots he took, and we cannot wait to see how they turn out. But he also did a great job of keeping everyone smiling picture after picture, all throughout the day--which is something you don't think about beforehand. Jason even stayed longer than his required contract time, just to get a few more shots. Excellent pricing, and exceptional quality of photography. Jason and Natalie were the best pair of photographers we have ever worked with, and we do not say that lightly. Our videographer Joe did a solid job as well, and did not get in the way. He captured all the important moments, and was great to have for the day. We highly recommend Studio One."

Allison and Josh were married 7-21-18. They wrote this on our facebook page: We found studio one my accident! They were in the same building as our DJ and we asked if we could do a quick meeting since we were already there. Joe was great and quick to answer questions and emails. We ended up picking Natalie as our photographer and I LOVED her! We talked on the phone before the wedding and she took note of any must needed shots for the wedding. Many people commented on how she looked like she was having fun along with the guests which I love haha! We also worked with Josh for our video and he was amazing as well! They made a great team captured our event and getting my serious husband to come out of his shell for pictures haha. I cannot wait to see how it all turns out!

Kristine and Tim were married 10-28-17. On 11-04-17 they wrote this on The Knot
"My husband and I would highly recommend Studio One for future brides and grooms! Joe was great at keeping us up to date on what he needed from us and got our pictures back to us in three weeks! 
Natalie, our photographer on the day, was super easy to work with and kept our bridal party laughing even in the 30 degree weather. She captured all of the best parts of the day beautifully and kept the day running smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a photographer for their special event.

Laura and Patrick were married 10-7-17, They just wrote this 5-star review on the Knot 11-4-17. Best Review ever!
"Natalie is beyond awesome. Her personality & professionalism helped make the day go so smoothly. She both knows what shots she is looking for, and was also flexible with suggestions, which also helped make the day low-to-no-stress.
As for the interesting story of how Natalie became our wedding photographer… my wife is not a fan of having her picture taken, so she wanted to make sure our wedding photographer would have a personality to make a stressful day less stressful. Most photography companies would not let us know who the photographer was until the week before, or the one person we would meet did not seem to have the personality we were looking for. Then, we found our way to Studio One in Naperville. While talking to Joe (President, etc.), talking about prices & details & such, we also mentioned our one requirement, and he was willing to work with it. After a few options, Natalie sounded like a good choice, and he actually had her call us later in the day, and throughout the conversation, we were increasingly happy with our choice, & that she hadn’t yet been booked. And now, as the wedding has since passed, and after seeing the photos, we feel like we literally could not have had a better photographer. Thank You Natalie, & Studio One Photography."

Hailey and Kyle were married on 9-9-17. They wrote on The Knot on 10-4-17. Thank you both!! We love and appreciate your comments.
Natalie (With Studio One) was AMAZING!!! I was so hesitant about having a photographer that I didn't know following me and my family around on my wedding day, but Natalie was so kind and got along with everyone. She not only took beautiful pictures, she also helped out a bunch! She also handled things that were not part of her job description, including entertaining grandma! (Thanks again Natalie! Our grandma still talks about you!) After seeing the pictures, there were things that she (Natalie) captured that I would have never thought of, and those candid moments ended up being some of my favorite photographs. Studio One was the only wedding vendor that I did not have one single issue with. Communication was great, and everyone that we dealt with was wonderful. Pictures were also delivered in a very timely manner, much faster than the original projected date. All in all, it was a fabulous experience, and you will not be disappointed if you choose Natalie to shoot your special day!!!!
Love ,
Hailey and Kyle Thomas

Hailey also wrote me a personal email:
I just left a review, it said it should be posted within 15 minutes. You were totally right about Natalie, she ROCKS! You guys are doing things right, and it was worth every single penny. Thanks for making our special day even more special. After seeing the pictures, it took us right back to that day. I've never had professional photo's taken before, and after seeing the aftermath, it is definitely an art, and Natalie has true talent.

From the Mother of the Bride, he children Kelly and Colin were married on 1-14-2017, Posted on "The Knot" 5-30-17 This professional studio did a FANTASTIC job on my daughter and son-in-laws wedding in January 2017. From the initial consultation with owner Joe to the Photographer Natalie being the last one to leave the reception! EVERY photo was outstanding and everything they said they would do, they did - on a timely basis. Now if I can just figure out my 200 favorites for an album... Thanks again Joe and Natalie!
