– ABOUT –
Hi, I’m Katy. I have been photographing beautiful weddings and families all over the UK and Europe for around 8 years, and I still have to pinch myself sometimes that I get to do this as a job!
I took my first photograph age 7, after receiving a camera for my birthday while on holiday with my family in France. The photograph is of an ivy-covered church in a little town called Nuits Saint George. There were many more photographs, and many more holidays to France, and not only did I fall in love with photography, but also with France; the landscape, the culture, the sunshine – not to mention the food and wine!
For years I dreamed of one day living in a farmhouse with pale blue shutters in the south of France, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, sipping a glass of crisp pale rosé in the sunshine… and in March this year we made the dream a reality! We bought a beautiful stone farmhouse (with white shutters, but they can be painted!) in the sunny Charente region of South-West France, with a huge garden for our two girls to run around in, and beautiful views over the French countryside. Now I really have to pinch myself! I always wondered if true happiness lay in being able to eat breakfast (and lunch, and dinner…) in the sunshine every day, so now I have the chance to find out (although perhaps not all year round!). Waking up to blue skies (almost) every day and being surrounded by so much beauty, space and light is heaven to my light-seeking, creatve soul!
I am married to my best friend and soul mate, who I met at University, and we have two gorgeous little girls – Sophie, age 7, and Madeleine, 18 months. I understand first-hand how important it is to capture those fleeting moments, authentic emotion and little details in life that we might otherwise forget. We see our wedding album as a treasured family heirloom, and I believe in real printed photographs, which is why every wedding collection includes a beautiful album.
I believe in following your
My photographic style reflects my love of France – the beautiful soft tones, the gorgeous golden light, the landscapes and architecture, the outdoor lifestyle and sharing beautiful times with good friends and family. There are many elements to a great photograph – light, composition, the technical stuff – but also real moments and emotion. I believe that having a genuine connection with the people that I photograph results in beautiful, authentic images, so I spend time getting to know you before the wedding, and get fully involved in the wedding day itself. Having me as your wedding photographer will probably feel more like having a good friend around all day, but one who takes a lot of pictures!
