If we didn’t know better, we’d be convinced that Natalie Franke‘s life was part of a fairy tale! This Chesapeake Bay native is married to her high school sweetheart and has achieved international success as a wedding photographer — and she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania only two years ago! It’s easy to see why Natalie has become well-known for her sweet, romantic and slightly nostalgic photos (many of which she has contributed to Glitter Guide!). To our delight, Natalie agreed to share a peek inside her Annapolis office — plus details about her business, sense of style and beloved hometown.
How did you get into photography? Was it hard to launch a career right out of college?
I discovered photography when I was a senior in high school and began shooting weddings in my freshman year of college! By my senior year at UPenn, I was shooting weddings every other weekend and had built up my business so that it was fairly easy to roll right into photography full-time by graduation. Balancing both for four years was difficult, but it was truly worth the hard work!
