Katia is a creative, experienced and reliable wedding photographer who loves her job and works hard to give you a beautiful set of quality photographs and the best service possible!
She is Devon based but shoots weddings across Somerset, Dorset and the South West.
She likes to keep things relaxed and natural and her reportage style allows her to capture all aspects of day including the special details, expressions and fun, without interrupting anything.
Katia is keen to put you at ease and understand your vision for the day, so you can meet with her as often as you like beforehand. Her experience will help when organising the day in terms of timings, group shots etc. so everything runs smoothly.
She will visit the venue beforehand to get a feel for it and ensure you make the most of the opportunities it offers whatever the weather.
Katia’s wedding photography will capture all the joy, romance and fun of your day and tell the story in a way that is uniquely personal to you.
Katia would love to hear from you so please do not hesitate to get in touch through the contact form or through her website.
Katia was fantastic and a true professional! We were thrilled to have her taking the pictures for our special day and looking at them all brings it all back and what a wonderful day it was! Katia was so organised and discreet, the day ran so smoothly. Even though we had a small registry office wedding with only 16 guests, Katia took hundreds of pictures and even managed to make my little house look like a glamorous location! We are so glad she was our photographer, and we would happily recommend her to anybody!
We were blown away with Katia's photographs, and cannot stop looking through them. She captured every moment perfectly with so much emotion in every image. Everyone has commented on how great they are. We cannot thank her enough!
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!
