  • "Hiring Katia was the best decision we made for our wedding"
    Louise & Wesley on 19 November 2019

    Hiring Katia to complete our photographs was the best decision we made for our wedding. She gave us amazing advice on the lead up to our wedding and met us regularly beforehand, even doing an engagement shoot to put us at ease. On the day itself she was totally discrete and managed to capture some beautiful natural moments as well as some gorgeous group shots. It rained during our special day but Katia made us forget all about it and captured beautiful photos regardless of the weather. Pictures that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much Katia, we really would recommend you to everyone we meet!

  • "We were delighted to have had you as our Photographer!"
    David & Lucy on 19 November 2019

    We were delighted to have you as our photographer since you did such a wonderful job at Ellie and Phil's wedding. Your photos are absolutely amazing. We're so happy with them. Not only are we really pleased with the photos, but we also very much enjoyed having you around on the day - you fitted in with everyone perfectly and added to the lovely atmosphere. We'll definitely recommend you to others.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

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.

What services do you offer?

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.

What does the wedding package include?

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.

How far in advance should I contact you?

The sooner you contact me the better in terms of reserving a date, particularly if your date is a Saturday between April - October.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

I only photograph one wedding a day to ensure a quality service.

Are you able to travel?

I'm happy to travel but would ask for basic millage costs if it were much over 70 miles from home, EX246LF.

What is the charge for travelling?

I charge the standard millage costs for travel over 70 miles.

What style of photos do you take?

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.

What kind of technology do you use?

I use two digital cameras & shoot in RAW format. I edit predominantly in Lightroom & Photoshop.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

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.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use two Nikon DSLR's with a range of fixed & zoom lenses & on & off camera flash

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

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.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I try to send you your set of digital photographs within two weeks of the wedding day.

Do you send all the photos taken?

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.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I mostly work alone but can take a second shooter if the day requires.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

I have a colleague who can provide backup but in 18 years I've never had cause to use her!

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

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.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

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.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

I'm open to discuss anything

What are the forms of payment?

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.

How do you work?

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!
