Full Description
I love to shoot in a relaxed and respectful atmosphere, so your photographs and the whole experience is always a beautiful reminder of your special day and you can feel the joy and pleasure of your photographs. My specialization is in wedding photography because I visit amazing places, meet new people and witness unrepeatable moments as every wedding is very unique and our time is unstoppable, so in years this will be the only reminder of the fantastic time you had on your wedding - expect of your memories. Capturing raw and real emotions of you and your guests and the most important that you enjoy fully your wedding day is my philosophy. When clients or friends come back to me after years and tell me that they still love their photographs - it means my photographs are timeless and confirms why I love being a photographer. Attention is always paid to tiny details as I believe those make big difference in final photography reportage and your day is documented in an artistic and documentary style of photography. Please get in touch for pricing and consultation of your special day. I look forward to hearing from you!

An amazing eye for detail
I would highly recommend Kat for all your photography needs! She has an amazing eye for detail, her creativity is most impressive and most importantly she is really approachable and makes even those who have a phobia of being in front of the camera super comfortable. This is my first review and I don't get easily impressed so that should speak for itself!

Katarina was simply fantastic
Katarina was simply fantastic. She arrived on time and arrived with her assistant who provided her extra assistance. She asked us what kind of photos we’d like and if it was okay to take photos whenever and whenever – this made the photos natural looking. Katarina provides us with amazing wedding photos which we will cherish for years to come. I highly reccomend using Katarina as your photographer. I will certainty be using her again!!

Katarina was brilliant
Katarina was brilliant. She was quick to answer emails and phone calls. On the day Katarina was already at the venue, she was discrete but fun and made us feel relaxed. She took brilliant photos of our wedding day that summed up our day. She was very professional throughout and we loved our photos and would highly recommend Katarina photography.

Beyond talented
Katarina is beyond talented and extremely professional. She really knows what she is doing but most importantly, how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Photos of myself turns out great and I actually like them (happens very rarely!). I couldn't recommend her services highly enough - you'd be missing out if you didn't come to Katarina!

What is your most memorable wedding?

To me every wedding is unique and there is always moments I remember from each wedding. Very memorable wedding for me was the bride told all her wedding guests that she is expecting the baby. Another reason to celebrate for everyone on that day! It was very emotional, and the atmosphere at the wedding was just fantastic, as all guests and family were really happy for the couple who were trying for the baby for years. I felt really special that I was there sharing this moment and capturing these perfect moments.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fresh, Airy, Storytelling, Fine Art, Documentary

What about your business are you most proud of?

That clients have trust in my photography skills and fully believe in me on their big day. I now it is a big decision to make - who will photograph your wedding, and I always feel honored when I am the right one to my clients. I also pride myself in being nice and kind to everyone, and I love when clients say that they felt relaxed and truly enjoyed their wedding day with me.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Take your time and do research to make sure your photographer has all the qualities you are looking for. Most importantly I would say you need to like the style of your photographer, and what edit photographer does. It is important to see full day wedding reportage - usually displayed on photographers portfolio. Is it documentary type of photography you are looking for? Or traditional? maybe contemporary or candid? When you are sure this is the one, book as soon as possible as wedding photographers are being booked 1-2 years in advance. However, there might be some cancellation, so if you like photographers style, always try if they are available on your wedding and you might be the lucky one!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Speeches are my favorite part during each wedding as you know the story behind a wedding couple, and even people before they met each other. Me, as a storyteller, it is important part of the day to know what is ,,behind" the couple and make their wedding storytelling personal when editing and choosing photographs, because from speeches I hear what is important to couple, and they value on each other. But what always makes my heart melt is when wedding couple displays on their top table the photograph of loved ones who are not here anymore to celebrate with them, but always will be in their hearts and are at the wedding in spirit.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

As a wedding couple, you get in touch with me if I am available on your wedding date. If I am, I will send you a price list with wedding packages I offer. I am flexible photographer, so if you wish to adjust any package to your needs, I am happy to have a discussion, or I can help with choosing the right package for you. After decision is made by you and your partner, you let me know which package you decide to go for, and I will prepare personalized contract for you, which will be send to your email, along with terms and conditions, confirmation of public liability insurance and booking form - you will be asked to fill in the form with as much details as possible so I know exactly what is your schedule, timings on the day, special wishes, traditions, and any surprise that I should be ready for.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The best photos usually taken are definitelly candid natural photographs. I know you can see the mood and smell atmosphere from photographs - that is why I vote for photograph always need to be taken the one when you leave wedding ceremony with one hand holding your partner and second hand holding your marriage certificate. This is the first moment when wedding couple feels stress free, is overwhelmed by happiness and they are experiencing their first minutes of married life. What you can see on those photographs is pure love, happiness, relief and greatfuness for each other. This is my favourite part of the ceremony!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Very meaningful and emotional photograph comes on my mind, when bride and groom were having their wedding couple photo shoot and instead of taking all of their free time to get photographs done, they had a wish to go to groom's granddad room (wedding was happening at the London Luton Hoo hotel), and they wished to have photographs with him. The photographs of wedding couple and him created very special atmosphere in the room and I could see unconditional love and bond between generations - something what you do not see everyday. It sparked stars in granddad eyes, as he had serious illness and could not leave his bed. Very emotional photograph - bride and groom sitting beside granddad holding his hands and he was giving them blessings. I love weddings due to unrepeatable moments like this - I feel always honored to be part of people's weddings because they share all those very intimate moments with me.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
