Hey, I’m Kate!
And I'm a mama and a wife and a Yank export living just south of Manchester on the edge of Cheshire. Also I'm a photographer! I grew up in the rolling green mountains of Vermont in northern New England (top right corner of the states, just above New York) in a town where people still don't lock their doors and my mama leaves the car keys in the footwell of the car 'just in case a neighbour needs to borrow it'.
Maybe it's because of this small town upbringing or the openness of Vermonters but I've always approached the world in an 'arms-wide-open' way and several years ago managed to land in my dream job of capturing love and joy (the good stuff!) as a wedding and family photographer.
Guys. I LOVE my job. After easing into it by working around my full-time admin job for a couple of years, I took the plunge after the birth of our daughter in 2015 and went full time and it has been the second best decision I've ever made (after moving to Hamburg where I met my husband!)
I have since spent the past four years working my butt off in this amazing industry, meeting incredibly talented vendors and photographing some of the loveliest people I've ever met. I do not take my responsibility lightly, I know just how lucky I am to be entrusted with your memories and see my job as one of an archivist: capturing your wedding and your family & friends in such a way that it preserves those moments; your wedding photos then become a time capsule, a reminder of the details, the feelings & emotions, the dancing, the vows, the joy.
More than anything, I’m there for the JOY.
I hope you'lll have me along.
