Bristol Wedding Photographer


Hello, I’m Katya , a wedding photographer based in Bristol

I understand that you've never been married before, so I will cut to the chase and explain how it all works!

Prior to booking me as your wedding photographer, I hold a video consultation with all of my couples (or in person if you are based in Bristol and are searching for a Bristol wedding photographer) to understand whether we are a good fit for each other. If we are both on the same page, I send you the contract to sign and an invoice to pay the booking fee in order to secure your date.

We liaise to schedule an engagement photoshoot prior to your wedding day. I deliver your images in an online gallery and a month prior to your wedding we touch base again to iron out final details.

On the wedding day I photograph your day making it as easy as possible for you to enjoy it. I deliver the images in an online gallery 6-8 weeks later.

    Absolutely perfect!

    Our wedding photos are beautiful and we are so pleased with the quality and amount of photos we received. Katya was great to work with, we had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid and she went above and beyond to help us. She made us feel at ease on the day and fitted right in, and captured the day perfectly. Thank you so much!

    So thrilled with the whole experience!

    Katya photographed our wedding and we cannot recommend her highly enough! She is incredibly professional and organised and genuinely lovely. So many of our guests commented on her professionalism and both the hair and makeup artists appreciated her unique way of keeping us all to time without making anyone feel rushed or stressed. Katya brought a sense of fun and relaxation to our wedding day whilst she captured the most amazing images. We were so thrilled with the whole experience.

    Absolutely beautiful - couldn't be happier

    Katya was truly wonderful to work with on our wedding day. We planned a destination wedding in Ireland, so it was important for us to capture the special moments of the day to share with family and friends that couldn't travel. She was so thoughtful, kind and professional. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and we couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend her for any event and hope we can work with her again in the future!

    She's the full package and worth every penny!

    Katya is AMAZING, wonderful and has such a lovely spirit. She is truly are a trooper, soaking wet from all the rain in our wedding day...but what's an Irish wedding without rain?...standing on a slippery wet cliff edge, helping me with my makeup and fake eyelashes that were falling off, being my driver with a poofy dress in her car. You really are amazing. To anyone who thinks wedding photographers just take pictures. Definitely not the case with Katya, she is the full package and worth every penny. I am over the top in love with all the pictures from the wedding. If I could get married every year I would have Katya as my permanent photographer xox

    Forever Grateful to Katya

    Katya was fantastic. We were paired with her via Peach Perfect Weddings and we are so happy we were. Katya was friendly and personable, which made it very easy for us to fall into our normal relaxed routine while she clicked around us. Her photos really brought out the beauty in the surroundings and the love between us. We are forever grateful to her for capturing the true spirit of our big day.

    She is so talented!

    I am still amazed about the result we got with Katya! I have to say I never liked pictures since I am not photogenic... until we met Katya! She just knows how to get the best out of you, she is so talented! It is like if her pictures could speak, she is just able to portrait a relationship in the nicest possible way. Thanks for all Katya, this photo album is one of the nicest memories we’ve ever kept!

    Super thrilled she was my photographer

    To describe Katya i would start by saying she is a kind gentle extremely talented young lady. She's super efficient organising the groups together few shots, rearranges it all and starts again. a few minutes later and all is done. She followed me around for the day without me knowing taking shots of us with our guests as we laughed chatted and enjoyed ourself. If at any time i needed her to take particular shots with people i defiantly wanted photographed she was always there. I have photos of guests who never even knew they were been photographed and some people I didn't even get around to talk to. I have exactly what i wanted a story book of wonderful precious pictures that depict what was a wonderful relaxed fun filled party and for that I am super thrilled she was my photographer. My wedding was less than a month ago & I have my photographs already I didn’t have to wait months. I couldn't recommend her enough anyone who is lucky enough to book her in the future can sleep well in the months leading up to their big day knowing they made the right decision choosing Katya as their photographer.
    Thank you for capturing precious moments so wonderfully.

    Everything I wanted and more

    When i was booking various things for my wedding I was unsure of a lot of them except one my photographer. Down through the years i gained a lot of knowledge on this subject. Experiences good and bad from family and friend who got married and without been arrogant I had a list of things I wanted my photographer to be and do. Firstly I didn't want to miss out on hours of " my wedding day". I spent months organising this party and i wanted to be in attendance to enjoy it with my family and friends not miss everything and have an album of" posed" photographs of myself and the bridal party that took hours to take and miss out on the fun and everything else that went on during the day. I wanted the mandatory few group photos lets say the photos for the wall !! I also wanted all my photos the good, the bad and the ugly every single one I've had friends who were only given a certain number and held to ransom for the rest (true story) !! I didn't want to pose on top of pianos upside down on stair cases etc. I wanted someone calm, professional with the ability to take control of the group been photographed "snap snap" take a few nice shots and everyone got back to the party. Basically i wanted my Wedding photo album to tell the story of my day not be a posed photo shoot of a group of people dressed up.Well I struck it lucky, I got all of the above and more with my photographer Katya Koliban.

    Absolute dream to work with

    Katya was an absolute dream to work with on our wedding day! She was so kind, pleasant, and professional with a clear vision. We were paired with her through Peach Perfect Weddings, and are so grateful she was available on our wedding day. Being that we were having an intimate destination wedding, great photos were a MUST so that we could cherish this day forever and share them with so many loved ones back home who couldn't make the trip. We just got our photos back this week, and so far everyone we have showed them to has gotten emotional over how beautiful they are! I cannot recommend Katya enough. My only regret is that I only hired her for 6 hours- I should have extended her through the entire evening! Anyone would be lucky to have her on their special day.

    “It has been an absolute pleasure to have Katya as our engagement shoot and wedding photographer. Her attention to detail and level of organisation is absolutely top class. She was so calm and professional throughout our special day - it was certainly a talking point among our guests and she contributed hugely to ensuring that we had the most memorable day. I cannot recommend Katya more highly enough and the photos that she captured on the day are just exceptional - we absolutely LOVE them! Thanks again Katya x”

    “Katya was absolutely AMAZING on our wedding day! Since we live out of town, we weren’t able to meet her until the morning of, and she made us both feel so comfortable. By the end of our ceremony, she knew everyone’s names, how they were related to us, and what combinations of photos we wanted and needed. The end results are a dream. We can’t recommend her highly enough!”
