Update my wedding date
We will pass this information to Katia Marsh Photography so they can respond. Hitched will create an account for you to view your suppliers in a list and create a free wedding plan.
Katia is a Devon based photographer who also shoots weddings across Somerset, Dorset, and the South West. She is a reliable, organised photographer who works hard to give you the best possible service.
Katia is keen to understand your vision of how you would like your photographs to be, so you are free to meet with her as often as you like to chat through details and any questions you may have about the day. She will help you organise a plan for group shots, timings etc. to make sure everything goes to plan!
She will also visit the venue before the big day to get a feel for it and how to work with the venue’s lighting to take the best possible photos and make back up plans in case of bad weather.
Katia’s wedding photography will fully capture all the joyful, sweet, and funny moments to tell the story of your day in a way that is personal to you.
Katia would love to hear from you, so please do not hesitate to get in touch through the contact form.
Katia's photos from our wedding day are absolutely stunning, we are delighted! She captured every little moment so beautifully & now we have an album we will cherish for our lifetime. Her service was so professional from the very beginning & so many guests commented on how well she organised everyone on the day without intruding.
We were so happy we found Katia, from the moment we met we knew we could put our trust in her. We loved working with her, she's perfect to have around with her experience & calming influence, it made the day even more special. Everyone commented on how great she was on the day & how lovely the photos are. She captured the day so beautifully we couldn't have asked for more! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends.
My prices vary depending on whether you require a full day or half a day's coverage & also if your wedding is on a Saturday or not & at what time of year. The simplest way to get a quote is to contact me with the basic details of your wedding & I'll get straight back to you.
I offer a full day's photography without a set time limit but am happy to discuss a shorter day if you'd prefer. I also offer an album service in which you choose from a full range of books and albums and which I will then design from a selection of images of your choice.
My standard package provides you with a full day's photography without a time limit & a set of roughly 400-500 high resolution, finely edited images with full printing rights. It also includes any amount of preparatory meetings, a thorough recce of the locations involved & an online gallery service for people to view & order prints. If you would like a pre-shoot this is also possible. In addition I offer a range of books & albums for you to choose from. If you would like a shorter day's coverage I am open to discuss.
The sooner you contact me the better in terms of reserving a date, particularly if your date is a Saturday between April - October.
I only photograph one wedding a day to ensure a quality service.
I'm happy to travel but would ask for basic millage costs if it were much over 70 miles from home, EX246LF.
I charge the standard millage costs for travel over 70 miles.
My style is a combination of natural, relaxed reportage & classic elegant photography. My priority is to capture the emotion, characters & action of the day without interrupting it, which, apart from the group shots, means there is very little posing & setting up of shots & lots of laughter, warmth & fun. I prepare well so that we can make the most of the location & time of year regardless of the weather. I cover every aspect of the day from the details to the bigger picture & take time to discuss your plans in detail to be sure your photographs will reflect the true spirit of the occasion.
I use two digital cameras & shoot in RAW format. I edit predominantly in Lightroom & Photoshop.
I have an artistic approach & enjoy being creative wherever possible however I'm also mindful of the need to cover all parts of the day effectively. My years of experience have taught me not to follow the latest 'trends' in terms of highly stylized editing affects as these will date & often details you might want to remember for what they were, will be lost.
I use two Nikon DSLR's with a range of fixed & zoom lenses & on & off camera flash
I provide you with an online gallery service in which you approve a set of images from the day & I display them on an individual gallery page on my website which can be open or made private with a password. You can then circulate this link for people to view & order prints in a range of sizes if they wish.
I try to send you your set of digital photographs within two weeks of the wedding day.
I select the best images, leaving you with plenty of choice but not endless repetitive overload! I then take time to finely edit your collection, converting some to black & white if this is something you've requested & send the set to you on a memory stick. Usually a full day's coverage provides 400-500 final images which tell the full story of your day.
I mostly work alone but can take a second shooter if the day requires.
I have a colleague who can provide backup but in 18 years I've never had cause to use her!
I have a simple contract to sign with you before the day in which we will agree about when & how I may use the images from your wedding.
I charge for the day or if a shorter day is required we discuss timings & cost. I don't charge an hourly rate for weddings.
I'm open to discuss anything
I ask for a £50 deposit to reserve the date & then require payment in full before the wedding. A bank transfer is fine but other methods can be discussed.
You make an inquiry, once I know the basic details of your day & requirements I'll send you a quote. If you'd then like, I'd suggest we meet, I'm happy to visit you with a selection of sample albums & we can talk though your plans. If you're happy then I request a £50 deposit to reserve the date. I will get in touch to meet again nearer the day to talk through the details & timings of the day, what group shots you'd like etc. If you'd like to meet at the venue this is also fine & I shall do a recce there a few weeks before the wedding day. Finally I'll see you on the day! You should then receive a memory stick containing your set of photographs within the following two weeks. Once you've approved the selection of pictures for the gallery I will go ahead & put that up online & send you the link to circulate. If you have chosen to have an album we will then discuss the selection of pictures for this & I with that final choice I will start designing it. I usually allow 4-6 weeks from receiving your final choices to delivering the finished album, but times can vary depending on the backlog!
