Ever since I photographed my first wedding I knew this was it for me. I had goosebumps all day and couldn't believe I was privileged enough to capture all the beautiful, unfiltered moments at weddings.
I became a photographer because I love people. Documenting love stories is the biggest privilege, I'll never take it for granted.
The value photographs and film hold is precious. They are how you will be remembered for generations.
You can trust me with your memories. I'd be honoured to tell your story through beautiful, timeless imagery.
x I'll go above and beyond to make sure you're comfortable in front of my camera, there will be no awkward moments
x Get you back to your guests (and the party!) asap
x Capture your important memories that will last a lifetime and beyond (no weird filters, only clean edits)
Originally from New Zealand, my husband Sam and I have lived in 3 different countries and 4 cities around the world, finally settling in Brisbane Australia, our home.
My daughter Ava and son Tom inspire me to live life to the fullest, and every day teach me the true meaning of unconditional love.
- I have a Bachelor of Design in Graphic Design, but I've only been a photographer
- I've photographed weddings all over the world - Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Bora Bora, America, and soon ITALY!
- Big fan of dark chocolate, 90 percent is perfect
- Love a good Netflix binge (preferably in the bath, with wine in hand).
YOU are my inspiration. Every couple I meet has a different story, a different connection and energy.
I've photographed hundreds of weddings over the years and I have experience (+ few tricks up my sleeve) to help you feel relaxed and calm, so I can capture your true connection.
My style is very natural and candid, but don't worry I will give you plenty of direction when you need it to guide you into those natural images.
I work with couples who want a stress-free wedding photography experience. You desire gorgeous images, but also want to get back to celebrating with your guests as soon as possible!
When working with me you can expect quick email responses, gifts in the mail, custom timeline creation, and more.
My priority is to make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed on your wedding day. I'll be a calming influence for you, making sure we stick to our timeframes so the day runs smoothly.
My photography approach is non-obtrusive, ensuring I capture natural, unposed moments. I'll give direction when needed, so you won't ever feel awkward!
My editing style is clean and classic. I've refined my style over many years to produce photographs that aren't overly processed, but with just enough magic to make your skin tones glow.
"Kate made our vision come to light. She was so personally invested in understanding the dynamics of the event to ensure she was going to capture everything we wanted and then delivered more. I feel privileged she agreed to shoot our event and we now have special photos of us and our guests we will cherish forever!"
MICHAEL & SANJA
“Kate really captured our day so well and put us at ease, we didn't feel awkward or stiff. We felt happy and relaxed, cannot recommend Kate enough. We are so happy with our wedding photos.“
JOSEY & BRAD
I would absolutely recommend Kate - I already have! Kate is lovely and fun, but such professional in her delivery. She made the process of taking our wedding photos so enjoyable - it was a delight!"
