Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalie Schutt.
Natalie, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
When I first started Natalie Schutt Photography, I was fresh out of college. I had studied Photography, but had absolutely no idea I wanted to create a long-lasting career as a wedding photographer! It was when I put my God-given gifts together that I knew this was my journey, my life path. I had been an artist ever since I could hold a paint brush, and people are my FAVE. Not to mention, love. It’s the most powerful thing this world is fueled by. When I realized being a wedding photographer was my calling, I put my nose to the grinder and stepped out. I emailed everyday like crazy, I met up with entrepreneurs and people further ahead in their photography career, and I read marketing books, self-help books, you name it – because I knew growing was key in order to become successful! I took big leaps of faith, investing most of my time and energy into building a genuine, service-based wedding photography business. And let me tell you – hard work most definitely pays off.
Today, 2 and a half years later from my first email sent signed “Natalie Schutt Photography,” I am humbled to say I have already accomplished so much. I have built my dream business with the help of my business partner, God, and capture on average 24-30 weddings a year. I have had the honor of capturing Miss USA’s (Nia Booko) wedding, as well as travel to Hawaii, Cabo San Lucas, and a few other epic places. But aside from the physical destinations and golden-sparkly perks (that come with a lot of hard work), my favorite part of my job is becoming supporters and friends of my couples. I have channeled my brand to revolve around capturing beautiful moments that stem directly from beauty that starts on the inside. Every single one of my couples has made a lasting impact on my life. I get to love on a lot of relationships, and I get to interact with a lot of souls, & I am incredibly thankful for all the things they teach me.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
For the most part, my road to owning my own Wedding Photography business has been smooth — but there’s no substitute, no shortcuts around hard work. And hard work isn’t easy — which is why I consider it the greatest challenge! You can have the most support, be encouraged like crazy, but ultimately, the fire has to burn within YOU. And having the perseverance to continue even on difficult days is where you are tested, but grow in character and strength.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Natalie Schutt Photography – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Natalie Schutt Photography specializes in adventuresome & timeless Weddings. My photos truly reflect my artistic background – as I am known for delivering photos that capture light & color in a bright and brilliant sort of way. As a company, we are most proud of serving our clients beyond the photos. During the engagement season, we love helping with their timeline or meeting up for coffee to calm their anxieties with planning the wedding. During the wedding itself, you will most definitely find us asking the bride if she needs anything, pinning the groom’s boutonniere, or bringing the couple water throughout the day. We go above and beyond to not only serve them personally, but to capture timeless, candid, gorgeous images of our couples’ days! We love to serve ALL around – and this is what sets us apart!
And like I mentioned, we travel all over the place! Flying to new destinations, diving into the ocean for some cool underwater shots, scaling epic cliffs – it is all so thrilling to me. I definitely love to adventure with my couples!
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Natalie Schutt Photography is looking forward to growing even more in the serving department. Beyond delivering exceptional wedding photos, we are always looking for the next best way to bring our couples back to what it is all about – the love they share for each other! Delivering photos is one thing – but leaving a wonderful impression on their heart with beautiful photos AND a Photography Company that strives to give life by uplifting their client’s journey – that is something else.
