I’m Natalie. My photographic journey began when my niece was born; she was so beautiful, I just couldn’t stop taking her photos… I started to read books about photography, then moved on to taking people’s portraits, and finally directed my enthusiasm to weddings. This passion pushes me ahead – I keep learning every day. I am a professional member of Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, and I keep refining my knowledge of photography through various forms of formal and online education. But more importantly, I keep growing and cherishing my ability and never ending desire to create photographs that make people smile and, sometimes, have tears in their eyes.
I’m Vitalie, the geek part of our business – and I am proud of it :) I love tinkering with cameras, buying new gear (I have a severe form of Photography Gear Acquisition Syndrome), and making sure all our lenses are properly calibrated. I actually read the camera user manuals – something I’ve never heard anyone else doing! Seriously though – while Natalie is great with the creative and art side of photography, I serve as a second shooter, and as an organisational force, directing Natalie’s creative efforts towards delivering a perfect final product for our clients.
And together we are Pixidrome Wedding Photography – a husband and wife team, who share a love of photography and are lucky enough to make a living from it.
We recently made it to the Top 30 London wedding photographers list on MyWed, the most popular wedding photographers website – yay! Top 10 is the next target – the sky’s the limit!

Natalie & Graham: Vitalie and Natalie at Pixidrome make an absolutely fantastic team. We were lucky enough to have them do a newborn shoot and pictures for our wedding. They not only put us at ease during, but made the whole process fun and enjoyable, we now have some absolutely beautiful photos and some amazing quirky shots that we will cherish for the rest of our life. The package we selected came with a stunning photo book with all of our favourite shots that have been skilfully edited. We cannot recommend them highly enough!
