Making my way shortly to my fave city to wander around, taking gorgeous pics of super rad couples in. #TORONTO ! I'm on my way! Special thanks to mother nature for keeping today's temps above zero! 💍☀️❄️
Destination weddings are stunning. Although its tricky and difficult sometimes to plan, it is beyond worth it. The location options, all the sunshine, endless sands and tans. 🏔
Weddings are my all time love of my job. Lets connect and chat ideas, resorts and get some dreams dreamt up! 🥂
My 2019 wedding season is wrapped up and I am looking forward to a low key winter! I’ll be snuggling Ada and enjoying the Christmas season and taking time to just be a mom. As someone who has a hard time saying no to work and cannot sit and do nothing I will be trying my best to actually rest before wedding season begins again (and maybe squeeze in some work too 🙂)!
People often ask me, “Do you think it’s better to do a first look with my fiancé before the ceremony?” And honestly that’s something that is so personal I think it’s all about what feels right for you. HOWEVER, I’m a big fan of doing a first look with other special people in your life! Here’s an authentic moment from Amanda and Dylan’s wedding when Amanda’s friend and bridesmaid saw her all dressed up for the first time. How adorable, am I right?
We’re photographing our last wedding of the year today! We can’t believe it’s almost time to leave for sun, sand, waves + lots of meditation, yoga + cultural experiences 🙏🏼 Soaking in the last couple days of home + winter before we leave. Happy Weekend, loves. .
In case you are new here, I would like to introduce myself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm Natalia, the creator of Natalia Zuk Photography. With Mat, my husband, we create a harmonious team of a passionate wedding photographer & videographer ( I wish we had at least one photo together, where we both look OK lol). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We love to meet new people, travel together, spend time outdoors canoeing, hiking, sunbathing and fishing. We brew our own beer and struggle to visit the gym regularly ( Netflix & Chill wins too often! ).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I had to describe us with one word, it would be passion. We constantly look for new challenges and ways to improve.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We help joyful, loving couples like you to feel confident and relaxed in front of the camera. Our goal is to create natural, genuine pictures that are valuable for you, without feeling awkward and stressed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This picture was taken this year at the Rockies during a weekend getaway. When I'm not working, I'm planning our next adventures.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are your next travel plans? What's the best place you have ever visit?
I just wanted to show some gratitude today for those who support me. Thank you for following along on this journey with me, for enjoying my unique artistic style, for sharing with your friends and family, and for choosing to work with me. Investing in photography is a luxury (which is why I try to give back so often with contests), and I genuinely feel honoured every single time one of you books with me.
I love meeting you, learning about you, and helping to tell your story. If we haven't met yet - let's be friends! 🤗 .
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov'd,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd."
~ William Shakespeare .

Low key some of my favourites from Emily’s portraits. If you take anyway anything from these, take away that you can enjoy the moments! Gusty winds on your wedding day may seem stressful if you’re determined to get outdoor portraits. But just remember to relax, let go (in this case, literally of your dress!) and enjoy ♥️
We managed to the catch the last gasp of fall at this session, this job makes me appreciate the seasons even more. On another note, my 2020 dates are filling up pretty quickly, so please reach out if you might like to work together ☺️ #torontoengagement#torontoengagementphotographer

Happy Friday!! I just have a few more holiday sessions to get through. So if you're still waiting on your photos, it won't be too much longer!
This little sweetie took some time to warm up but when she did we got some adorable smiles with Mom & Minnie Mouse. .
A funny thing happened this morning! I am working on compiling images for an exciting serious upgrade coming in 2020 and I noticed my face was wet. Yep at 7:30am I found myself uploading images to a gallery with a tear soaked face!
But Megan, why were you crying? Surely your images aren't sad!
Of course not! It just struck me how incredibly lucky I am and how grateful I feel to not only get to do what I do but to do what I do with so many fantastic people! Seriously being able to step into someones life for big and small moments is such an honour!
My emotional connection is so strong to the images that I cannot imagine what it's like for my clients! (Well I guess I can! I feel serious emotions when I look at our wedding pictures, much love to @christine_w_photography )
I recall the nerves and the love and the laughter. I remember the words of regret from parents who wish they had more family photos but life being... well life, tends to get in the way and kids being... well kids, don't always care what mom and dad want!
So to my clients past and present I say a giant thank you! Thank you for welcoming me into your lives, for sticking with me and for allowing me to turn my passion into my dream job!
Ben & Antoinette are getting hitched today!! 💒 I've never photographed another photographers wedding before, but I am super thankful for the opportunity and so excited to photograph these special moments for these too! 💕

I may be biased but the best way to connect is through getting out and exploring a little! Glad to have the privilege to connect with y’all this way!! Thanks so much Megan + Matt for all the love, fun times, and literally being so sweet. Seriously if you’re in the mood for sweets pay Megan’s bakery a visit @magicoven_bakery 😍✨

Absolutely no filter necessary! This is the real thing, as real and untouched as it gets. Can you feel the organic and simple pureness that resonates out of this capture. And that light leak. My gosh, that light leak! 😍

You know what I love most about wedding days ? That the love story isn’t limited to just the bride & groom. How flippin adorable is this moment between the newlywed Kailey & her brother? Swipe for more emotions 🖤

It was a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend wasn’t it? I hope you were surrounded by loved ones as I was for the past few days. As with each Thanksgiving (and as I’m sure many of us do), I like to take time to reflect on the things I am most thankful for. Always on the list is my husband, our son, my family, my health, and the comfort that is our home. This year however I wanted to reflect upon about how very grateful I am for these two beautiful souls. I am so thankful for the seemingly endless comfort, compassion, and laughter that they bring to our home, and to those who visit it. Both of these pups came into our lives at the right time, and with two very different pasts. Indie was a lost and anxious ridden soul, who lived sad and neglected life, while Remy came from a loving home in which circumstances changed their lifestyle. Yet with two very different pasts, they’re constantly reminding me of the same lessons. To live in the moment, to enjoy the simple things - like running and feeling the wind catch your face, the kindness that can come from sharing a bag of popcorn, and how to forgive those who have deeply hurt you. Right this second, they’re curled up at my feet as I send off some late night galleries, and yet again I find myself thankful for the best feet warmers a girl could ask for 💞

All of the heart eyes for yesterday’s stunning couple!
Living in our editing cave reflecting on the year we’ve had + the incredible celebrations we’ve witnessed. Now is when we start our holiday movies + annual Harry Potter binge while we edit away. It’s happening a little earlier this year since we leave in almost 30 days! Counting down the days until we leave for this adventure we’ve been dreaming of for a long time☀️ .
