photos you can feel
If you like natural, candid, non-cheesy, cinematic, storytelling photography, you’re in the right place! I help you discover locations, give advice on what does and doesn’t work, direct you on how to pose in a way that looks natural and comfortable & help you enjoy the moment.
I’m Nataly! I am a documentary wedding and family photographer who focuses on connection, emotions, & documenting those in-between moments. I live in Georgetown Texas with my two sweet little boys: Mark and Philip, my wonderful teen daughter Amelie and my forever soulmate, best friend and biggest supporter all in one: my husband Tim who is an incredibly talented musician.

I was born and raised in Central Asia where my mother language was Russian. We moved to the United States in 2016 and fell in love with Texas and the people here. My artistic journey began with an Associate Degree in art and continued with an 8-year career as a floral designer. I fell in love with photography long before I was able to afford a camera. I started capturing precious moments of my children and friends in 2018 and soon realized my desire to tell unique stories of other families as well.

Learning something new is my greatest joy, filling my heart with fulfillment as I create and grow. My art is in a constant state of transformation, always evolving into something fresh and innovative. While I love keeping up with trends, I strive to ensure my photographs remain timeless.

Traveling is my ultimate source of inspiration. It refreshes and recharges me, leaving me with stories to tell and a renewed sense of creativity.
Hi there, I’m so happy you ended up here!
enjoy every moment
I am passionate about telling the story of your family, your wedding and any and every special moment. I put my focus on connection, composition, light, movement, emotions.
If you've never been in front of a camera and feel a bit awkward, don't worry — I completely understand. I've worked with many clients who felt the same way, and I assure you, I've seen it all! I'll provide cues and guidance throughout the session, ensuring you feel comfortable and at ease. My posing style is very candid, and I love to step back and let you be yourselves and capture what’s happening without too much interference.

That's how most of the natural, candid moments you see on my page are captured. So many of my clients tell me how comfortable I made them feel, and that’s all I want for you to experience during your session.

Please don’t worry about windswept hair, your feet getting a bit dirty while you explore different landscapes, the chaos, the imperfections or your kids going crazy. That's what I’m looking for. Real life. Those in-between moments you can't plan for. If you want to truly showcase your family's love, the way you connect with each other, just let it all go, be present, be vulnerable!
My inspiration comes from art, books, light, architecture, simplicity, traveling, vintage everything, green plants, minimalism, blue hour, indee movies, my children, and so much more.
My goal is for you to have an amazing time with me and in front of my camera, creating timeless photos you'll cherish for years to come.
Families, couples, weddings, individuals, bumps and newborns are wanted! I love working with people who want their photos to reflect their deep connection and love for each other where their unique personalities shine through. If you want those typical, staged, posed, awkward photos then I might not be the best fit for you. If you want perfectly edited, polished photos, I may not be able to help you either. However, if you're looking for a photographer to work with you in creating photos that tell a unique story, I'd be thrilled to collaborate!
who I
We’ll discuss the details and when you're ready to proceed, I'll send you a booking link. Once the deposit is made and the contract is signed, your date will be officially reserved on my calendar! I'll be completely accessible to you from the moment of booking until the day of the shoot or wedding.
reach out
A few days before your photoshoot, I will send you a prep guide and location details. I'll also be available to answer any last-minute questions or address any concerns you might have, ensuring you feel fully prepared and excited for the session.
shoot day
Your photos will be provided in an online gallery, ideal for sharing with others and ordering prints or albums. For family and couples sessions, expect your gallery to be delivered within 4 weeks from the day of your session (up to 6 weeks during busy season!) and around 6-8 weeks for weddings.

Choosing Natalie Celik to capture our wedding day was the best decision we made. Her talent behind the lens is unparalleled, and the photos she delivered were nothing short of magical.

I hired Natalie for my birthday, and she exceeded my expectations. She created a wonderful atmosphere and guided us on how to pose. The photos came out amazing—I love the colors and lighting. Highly recommend!

Last spring, I had an incredible portrait session with Natalie, and when I received the photos, I was absolutely amazed by how stunning they were. Natalie's talent truly stands out in every shot.
I've been photographing people since 2018th
Of course! I’d be more than happy to do a traditional looking at the camera shot but just keep in mind this is not something I focus on. I look for genuine smiles and in between moments where you don’t even notice I’m there.
When you purchase a piece from an artist, you're getting more than just a photograph. You're investing in countless hours of dedication and experimentation. You're supporting years of learning, growth, and the pursuit of perfection. You're embracing the passion, effort, and moments of joy that go into creating each unique piece. Like most jobs in every other industry, my price isn’t negotiable.
It definitely varies! For weddings, it depends on your coverage, but on average about 100 edited photos per hour .
Depending on the package you choose, I deliver around 50-60 photos for a 30 min session, 100-120 for an hour long session and over 120 for a 90 min session. I assure you nothing is overlooked and will provide plenty of photos of everything I capture. You'll receive all the images that meet my standards!
For my Standard and Mini Session packages, I don't provide sneak peeks. However, I do aim to send sneak peeks within the first week from the day of your shoot for all other packages I offer.
Nope, because I maintain my reputation with finished work and editing is essential to deliver the best possible images.
In the event of cancellation or rescheduling, please note that the retainer is non-refundable but never expires. Should rescheduling be necessary, there may be a slight price adjustment according to my current rates, and the retainer will serve as a deposit for the future session.
I've never had this happen, but if a situation like this does occur and I’m unable to shoot due to an accident, illness, pregnancy, death, disaster, etc, I would find another photographer to shoot in my place. I would still edit the photos in my editing style though.
Try to wear something comfortable and think about how your outfits can compliment the location. Casual looks great! You really don’t need to dress up or wear something you've never worn before that may cause you to be uncomfortable. Avoid outfits with busy patterns, neon colors, large logos or text, and clashing colors. The goal is to keep the focus on your family and emotions. I would love to help you decide and give you my suggestions!
For my standard package, I only shoot in Georgetown but if you insist on a different location, a travel fee will apply. For all my other packages and wedding/events, I only charge a travel fee if the location is over 50 miles away from the zip code 78626.
