Based in Portishead, Bristol, Katie Forshaw Photography is run by two best friends who bring an inventive and entertaining approach to capturing weddings. Katie and Emily are fully inclusive and supportive, welcoming all wedding couples and parties to experience their fun photography style. The benefit of having two photographers is that memories are given multiple angles, with Katie shooting from a distance to get the big picture and Emily focusing on capturing the touching details of expressions and reactions. Their relaxed and playful photography technique creates timeless portraits of candid moments. Katie and Emily will travel up to 50 miles for no extra cost to work with weddings and can travel further if needed. They have extensive experience working in the South West, South Wales and the Midlands.

Katie and Emily always begin by giving their clients a pre-wedding consultation in person. This meeting is crucial for wedding couples and photographers to know they are perfect for each other. They offer a range of packages from 4 hours to full-day photography. Each package includes a stunning online, fully edited digital gallery of images from the wedding; added extras include extended hours, albums, and other products. Finally, Kate Forshaw Photography provides a sneak peek of 50 images within 48-72 hours of the special day so couples don't have to wait to relive their fun and special day again.

An Amazing day in Chew Magna

We found Katie & Emily in a FB wedding group for Bristol locals. Someone had tagged them on the page so I had a look and loved their work. They worked so hard at our wedding and all my friends and family really loved having them there.
We feel that they really captured the emotions of the day and we love the photos they sent us!

Captured our day perfectly

We used Katie last year for our Wedding Day, we wanted natural photos and Katie did not disappoint we had so many amazing photos to choose from. Katie was with us all day and at times would not even know she was. We love our photos and purchased prints from Katie. Would highly recommend Katie.

Super pleased with our magical days memories being captured

Katie captured everything we wanted from our special day. She was very professional, we didn’t know she was there most the time snapping away in the background. We wanted to ensure we got some ‘action’ pictures which she certainly achieved for us.
Our group pictures are framed at home to remind us of our day. Thank you Katie for helping us relive our amazing day time after time. We have no hesitation in recommended Katie, we’re sure your be delighted.
