– ABOUT –
Hi, I’m Katy. I have been photographing beautiful weddings 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 actually 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! I dream 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!
While I dream of a life in the sun, at the moment I live in Manchester, where, believe it or not, the sun does still shine from time to time – often enough for me to drive around in my cute little convertible and eat breakfast in the garden occasionally! I am married to my best friend and soul mate, who I met at University, and we have two gorgeous little girls – Sophie, age 6, and Madeleine, 7 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!
