Full Description
Different strokes for different folks. Some couples may want to savour each moment and capture the entire day from the excited giggles in the morning getting ready to hitting the dance floor, while other couples may have a part of the day that they would like to keep more private. Because of this I’ve priced my packages in the number of hours you need me for, then you can choose when I start and finish. All packages include a USB memory stick brimming with high resolution digital images and web ready images with unlimited printing rights packed up for you in a beautiful wooden box with 20 high quality gift prints to make opening up your wedding photographs that little bit more exciting! The USB will also contain a slide show telling the story of your day set to music of your choosing, so you can sit back and watch your day play out as many times as you like. Each package includes... A meeting in person or a Skype if you are further afield. A visit to the venue before the wedding. Advice and support to ensure we get the best photos possible. A slide show of your wedding photographs set to music of your choice. A cute little wooden USB with files to print, to share on the web and a your slide show of the story of your day. Images come with full printing rights, so you can print off as many copies as you like and share them with your friends and family. 20 Carefully selected gift prints so when you open your wedding photographs you have some real life prints to show off straight away! A nice little wooden box to keep your photos and USB safe. A online pass worded gallery to share with your family and friends. I come with public liability and professional indemnity insurance. I can provide photographic lighting if we need it (depending on venue restrictions). Me :).

We're so happy with Katie's work and you will be, too!
Katie is the best! We booked her quite last minute for a late December wedding and she was very accommodating. Although we couldn't meet before the wedding (due to our personal logistics, not Katie's!), she made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. Katie was friendly and non-intrusive, but also not afraid to get where she needed to be to get the good photos! And the photos were BEAUTIFUL! Katie did a perfect job of capturing the tone of the day. It's really clear that she cares about the story of each of her clients and does her best to create a comprehensive memory of the entire day, instead of only a pretty series of individual photos. We're so happy with Katie's work and you will be, too!

We both cried the first time we looked at them and our friends and family have been just as moved and impressed.
Katie was brilliant from beginning to end! She was the photographer for our wedding in September and we couldn’t have asked for better. She put us at ease straight away when we first contacted her and was so relaxed and positive throughout. We knew we had made the right choice when we saw the beautiful photos from the engagement shoot. On the day both she and Katie, the second shooter, were the consummate professionals but also relaxed and friendly and so patient – which must have been a challenge at times! The wedding photos are stunning and Katie managed to capture so many beautiful moments from the day. We both cried the first time we looked at them and our friends and family have been just as moved and impressed. Thanks so much for everything Katie. Love Jo and Mark Gilbertson xxx

We chose her as we loved her natural style and didn't want too many posed photographs.
I really can't recommend Katie enough! She was absolutely amazing from the initial meeting through to receiving the photos. On the day she was so lovely to be around. We chose her as we loved her natural style and didn't want too many posed photographs. Our wedding had so much going on and she captured everything brilliantly. The final photos are amazing and the slideshow is just brilliant! It's so nice looking back and seeing things you didn't see happen on the day. She was super quick to respond to all queries throughout the process and really professional. She's the BEST! Thanks Katie, love Vicki and Ravi xxxx

Katie is not just a photographer but a storyteller.
I can't even begin to describe how truly amazing a photographer Katie is. Our wedding was relaxed and informal and we wanted a photographer who would be able to capture this atmosphere. Katie was absolutely perfect. Throughout the whole day Katie was so friendly, professional and patient. We were so excited to receive our photographs, they exceeded all our expectations. The photos are stunning. The slideshow is amazing, so well thought out. It made me cry happy tears! Katie is not just a photographer but a storyteller. She captured every moment perfectly. Thank you so much for the dedication and hard work you put into our wedding. You are amazing! Love Erica and Liam xxx

5 stars just aren't enough - you are brilliant!!
We can't thank Katie enough for the amazing photos she captured of our wedding day! As a couple who hate PDAs, Katie made us feel ridiculously comfortable and there's hardly any pictures where I am not laughing. We wanted to see our wedding day from the eyes of everyone else, having a laugh and having fun, without having overly formal posed or intrusive pictures - that's exactly what we got! We love them. 5 stars just aren't enough - you are brilliant!! Love Kirk & Sam xx

She is amazing at what she does and she really does go above and beyond
Where to begin. From the first meeting with Katie I knew we were in the safest of hands. She is amazing at what she does and she really does go above and beyond. Our pictures were beyond our expectations and the slideshow blew us away. It was great to be able to relive such a magical day and see the details and reactions that are so easily missed. The little extra touches that she does to make it an even more personal experience add the cherry on top to an already perfect cake. Best decision ever for the best day ever. Thank you Katie xx

What is your most memorable wedding?

A couple couldn't have their cat at their wedding so they incorporated her into their table plan and table decorations, the photos that they had taken of her were hilarious and must have taken ages. Some of them were really clever. It made everyone laugh a lot and was a nice way for them to include their little cat baby in the day.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Try not to stress to much about the small stuff. Concentrate on what makes the day about you two and the most important part getting to marry your best friend!

What about your business are you most proud of?

A photo of them both together, being themselves and having a laugh.

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

It's got to be my first wedding, it was in 2010. I used to be a music photographer, photographing bands at gigs and music festivals. My friend asked me to shoot his wedding, at first I said no! It was too much responsibility. I was scared! But he didn't give up. Eventually I reached out to an awesome photographer and friend Anna Hardy and she took me under her wing taking me on weddings as a second shooter so I could practice before the wedding. When the day finally arrived I wasn't nervous at all, I felt ready, I was just really excited to have a whole day where I could take photographs of people! That was the beginning and I'm so grateful to have this amazing full time job. So I'll always remember that first wedding and be super grateful to my mate for trusting me and basically team talking me into it.

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

Relaxed, documentary, fun, story telling, beautiful.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to meet or skype couples before they book and keep in contact after the booking to get a feel for what the wedding is going to be like and what they are like, it's important to me to get to know couples so that I can capture the day with them and their personalities in mind. The more I know about them, what makes, them laugh, the stuff that is important to them the more I can bring that in when capturing the story of their day.

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

I love that a lot of my bookings come from referrals from past couples. It shows me that the relationship I have with couples and their overall client experience is good, that they are more than happy to go on and recommend me to their friends, family and coworkers. I love my couples.

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

Bring some umbrellas. Depending on your wedding venue you might need to brave a little of the rain to get some photos, although some bigger venues have plenty of spots inside for photos. Don't let it worry you. Rain keeps everyone together, people at the wedding end up mingling more and it rainy weddings always end with the wildest parties. Enjoy the ride!
