Hey there, we're the dynamic duo at the heart of Roses and Reeds, Natalie and Johnny! Roses & Reeds, born out of love and faith, found its roots in August 2020. It all began with Natalie Reed's journey in 2016 when she started her photography business, known as The King's Rose. The name was more than just a title; it represented her life's testament, her story. In October 2019, Natalie and Johnny Reed exchanged vows, marking the start of a beautiful partnership that went beyond marriage.

Johnny quickly became an integral part of the business, infusing it with his own unique perspective and talents. This union of love and artistry inspired the birth of Roses & Reeds. Today, we stand as a happily married photography duo, dedicated to capturing raw, intimate love stories in all their beautiful imperfections, all while giving glory to Jesus.

The magic of our work lies in the deep connection we build with our clients. We don't just see you as a project; we see you as a part of our growing photography family. From the moment we meet, we want to understand your story, your vision, and what makes your love unique. This connection helps us capture your most authentic moments and expressions. With the combination of photography and videography, we ensure that every nuance of your story is captured. From the stolen glances to the heartwarming laughter, we craft a seamless visual narrative that allows you to relive the magic time and time again.

Our faith is at the core of what we do. When we capture your love, we do so with a profound sense of purpose - to glorify Jesus. We believe that your love story is a testament to a greater love, and it's our honor to reflect that in our work.

But when it comes to those small moments that require skilled experience, such as family photos and your romantics, we will tell you exactly what to do. AKA: We got you babe :) 


I truly could not say enough good things about working with Natalie and Johnny as our wedding photographers. Natalie has been there for us since the beginning- starting with our engagement photos that we LOVE. She is as sweet as she is talented and truly so amazing to work with. She met with me prior to the wedding to go over the day's timeline to make sure everything day of went smoothly- and it did! And as far as our wedding photos go- our day was only a couple of weeks ago so I don't have the full album yet BUT she sent me so many sneak peak pictures only 2 days after the wedding!! I spent all morning crying happy tears with my new husband and my mom looking at the beautiful photos. I know our full album is going to be amazing!! I am in awe of how the photos turned out and am so glad the joy of the day will live on in these photos forever! Thank you Natalie and Johnny for capturing our day so beautifully! :)

Roses and Reeds did an AMAZING job with both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. They captured exactly who we are and the love we share in every photo. I’m so obsessed and can’t wait to print and frame all of them! We are going to have them do our pregnancy photo shoot next!

Natalie is not only the BEST photographer I have ever worked with, but the SWEETEST, most genuine human ever! Her work is beautiful! She has done multiple photoshoots for myself and my family, including my most special day, my wedding! These pictures attached below are hung in my house, my parents house, in laws houses, grandparents houses, on the walls of my salon. I will forever treasure them. Thank you Natalie!

BOOK HER, and you’ll forever treasure them too!

We found Natalie through an old coworker of mine who had taken their engagement photos the year before. We planned our photos rather quickly but Natalie was able to work with our schedule and get us booked as soon as possible. The specific pictures I wanted to have and to save of our engagement she captured more than perfectly. The amount of high quality, beautiful photos she produced was actually more than I could ever expect. Natalie is both professional and such a warm character we did not feel like she was a stranger. She directed us well and we had so much fun actually taking the photos! Not only did she do a good job but she gave me the photos faster than I could ever expect. Natalie is a diamond in the rough of photographers and I will definitely be using her for my future photos for any event. So blessed that I found her!!
