What style of photographer are you?
I'm all about documentary photography. It's so important to me to document your day honestly. I won't boss you around or make you stand awkwardly to setup shots that aren't 'you'. Instead I'll watch your day unfold and give you your own personal story to look back on.
Do you come on your own or bring a second photographer?
I always provide a second photographer as I think this works best with the documentary style and gives you the whole picture to look back on. It also means you can both have a photographer with you before the ceremony. I realise some people have small intimate weddings, in which case I'm happy to come on my own.
How long does it take to get the photos back?
A promise a sneak peek of about 30 images within a few days of the wedding. Then the full gallery with be ready by 6-8 weeks after the wedding (usually within 6 weeks). You'll get a USB in the post first and then an online gallery.
How do we book you?
Send me an e-mail and we can chat! If you decide to book I'll send you a link to an online booking form and the details for the deposit. £250 will secure the date then nothing else is due until closer to the wedding (two weeks before the date).
What areas do you cover?
Anywhere and everywhere! My home is Lincoln, Lincolnshire but I'm lucky enough to have a place to stay in London so I travel there frequently for weddings. Being in the midlands means I can quite easily get to many places in the UK. I currently don't charge any extra for travel within the UK as I love getting out and about around the country. If your wedding is more than a couple of hours from my home I'll check into a cheap hotel (no expense to you) the night before so I'm not too far away on the morning of the wedding.
Do you do group shots?
Yes. Most of the day will be documentary, however I still see the importance in family group shots so we can still incorporate these into your day. For you to have the best experience on the day with minimal interference it's best to keep these to as few different groups as possible. 6 shots maximum is ideal, but I realise that all families are different.
We can’t thank Kat enough for capturing the most beautiful photos on our wedding day that we will cherish forever! Her work is absolutely incredible and the moment we saw the photos for the first time is something we will never forget; they really did just blow us away and fill us with so much emotion. Communication with Kat throughout the whole process was amazing. Packages of information sent through the post, emails always replied to instantly and meetings arranged to discuss the day. Meetings before the wedding went so smoothly, she put me and my husband at ease and discussed the day in a light, friendly conversation. During the big day, she just fitted in perfectly, chatting away with the wedding party, just no awkward feels at all and would get into any position to get the perfect shot! She’d hide in small gaps and blend in the background, sometimes so discreet, you really wouldn’t notice her! After the day, she sent sneak peaks so soon after! We couldn’t believe it! It really sent us on our honeymoon feeling so emotional and grateful for everything. The pictures; perfectly captured and edited beautifully. Pictures capturing some candid moments that really captured the true atmosphere of the day. Everything so real and natural. We were already just so pleased with the sneak peaks, that we couldn’t believe our eyes when the whole album came. Firstly, we were shocked by how many photos we received but also by how every single picture was truly amazing. All photos are put into an online gallery which is just the best way of sharing the photos with friends and family, it makes it so simple and effective! Also, a USB in a little vintage wooden box with some printed pictures sent to your door! Honestly, the whole process was just magical. If anyone is thinking about booking with Kat, don’t second think, and just do. We feel so grateful that we found her to capture our day. Thank you so much Nicole and Luke x
Kat is an absolute pro! We couldn't have asked for more from the initial consultation to the shots she produced. She managed to capture the essence of our wedding day so perfectly through her relaxed style and approach to all the moments we weren't around for. The quality (and quantity!) of our shots were even better than we could have hoped for. We're able to relive our day at the touch of a button. Thank you Kat, you made our wedding!
We had a wonderful experience with Kat from start to finish. After being a bit last minute with booking our wedding photographer, Kat was kind, understanding and made the process super easy. She is an absolute professional, and will send you clear information and a contract. Communication was A+. And it got even better on the day. She blended in so well with our families and ourselves. She gave direction when needed, but never over imposed herself at all. The photographs turned out amazing. She captured everything we had dreamed of and more. Many cute details and emotion shines through in her work. We are honestly so pleased and shocked with the quality of the photos, which are beautifully artistic. I would recommend her 100%. You will have a wedding album that's really special. We still can't believe our luck! Thank you Kat!
If I could give two pieces of advise to couples planning a wedding, the first would be to find the right photographer. The photos of your day will always be there, even when the memories start to fade, so it’s important to find a photographer with natural talent who understands what you’re looking for. My second piece of advice would be to book Kat and KMGS. Kat was one of the first vendors we booked at the start of our wedding journey, which proved to be one of the best decisions we made. She ensured that the entire process was relaxed, straightforward and personal to us. On the day itself, Kat captured the documentary style photography approach perfectly. She blended into the background, capturing all of the genuine moments between family and friends, yet was always present as soon as we needed her. We genuinely couldn’t have asked for anything more, and she exceeded our expectations from start to finish. We received our photo presentation pack today, complete with wooden storage box, a framed print, and a Christmas tree ornamental with one of our favourite photos inside which was a beautiful touch. Kat - we can’t thank you enough for everything. We’ve already recommended you to other couples with weddings coming up and will continue to do so in future. In summary - book KMGS for your wedding! You won’t regret it. Ashley
Don't hesitate, just book Kat straight away!! Every single interaction we had with Kat was easy, helpful and friendly. She fitted into our wedding perfectly, without imposing but somehow still managing to capture every important moment. But most importantly we are IN LOVE with the photos! They are absolutely beautiful and clearly so skillfully taken and edited. They tell a whole story of our day and we cannot believe how many we have from 1 shooter, way more than we expected! And there were so many lovely touches from a helpful intro guide sent in the post, through to receiving our final photos in a gorgeous presentation box, with 2 framed photos so we could instantly display some memories. Everyome we've shown our photos to has commented at how amazing they are. Thank you so much Kat for documenting our day in a way we will enjoy looking back on forever!
