Hello loves!
Finding your perfect fit for a photographer is really important to me.

I love getting to know my couples and families, and looking after you too, so find out a little bit about me right here.

I live on the (mostly) sunny south coast in Hastings with my husband and our two grumpy rescue cats.

I love cake but I’m terrible at baking. My husband often says ‘you could burn salad’, it’s true. Pretty sure I have burned spaghetti actually.

Exploring new places and photographing everything in sight is one of my favourite things to do.

I stop and take pictures every 2 seconds which really annoys my husband, but hey, he chose to marry a photographer! My favourite places include Scotland and Paris. I love the dichotomy between the two - there’s always something new to the landscape and city to see.

My grandad and dad introduced me to photography.
Both were keen amateur photographers who loved photographing nature and birds in particular. When I was at college, I borrowed their old film cameras and never looked back. That was how I started my career in photography, and in particular getting really up close to the patterns and textures in nature. I love being outside when it’s quiet and there’s no one else around

I love to photograph your most precious memories, photographs you’ll go back to time after time.

When your mum makes a witches costume out of a bin bag, a pirate hat, and the kitchen broom… That’s me with my little sister.

Some of my favourites are me and my sister dressed as witches wearing black bin bag dresses riding broomsticks!

Photographs from generations past stir something within us, weddings days, family holidays, those random photos from your childhood call us back to them time and time again.

It's not really about me though, it's about the people I photograph and what they say about me.

"Katie’s style is beautiful, so light and creative. She has such a talent for capturing all those moments and so much more."
"Being photographed was effortless and it felt like we were with an old friend that we had known forever."

I can't wait to meet you!
