Like most couples we were a little nervous about finding the right photographer for our wedding, but as soon as we came across Kathryn’s website, and especially after meeting her, we knew she was who we wanted to capture our big day. I can honestly say I was seriously concerned about the whole ‘posing for pictures’ element of my wedding day, probably above all else! I needn’t have been. Kathryn doesn’t force staged moments, she just happens to somehow be there when those moments happen naturally. All of her work on the day picked up on the joy of the occasion, and she managed to take pictures without intruding or forcing the awkward photos you normally have at weddings! She captured the mood of the day and the characters of our guests perfectly, and we, as well as all our friends and families, couldn’t be happier with our wonderful wedding photos. It didn’t go unnoticed that her kind and relaxed manner also put all of our guests at ease and the results are clearly evident in her photographs. From her discreet presence whilst me and my bridesmaids were getting ready and during the service, to directing the hordes at the venue and getting the best out of our group shots and onto the evening where she fitted in and around our guests perfectly. She captured far more than we could have imagined possible, all those bits that we missed on the day but got to find out about at our first look through the shots – it was great to re-live all the special moments that we can now share, keep and treasure. Especially the slideshow of ‘Our Story’. Truly fantastic and emotive, brought a tear to our eye when we first watched. We really can’t find the words to express our enormous gratitude for the amazing job Kathryn did. It takes an incredible eye to capture all of the fleeting glances and moments that make up such an emotional day, but she clearly has those skills in abundance. The photographs tell the story of our day perfectly and we are quite simply thrilled with her work and would recommend Kathryn time and time again. The big challenge on our hands now is how to choose which ones to put on the wall! Looks like my husband will need to build me a bigger wall!
Kathryn was wonderful and amazingly friendly from our very first meeting. The conversation flowed, she answered our (many) questions, took on board all of our ideas, and we took up most of her evening! From that point onwards, Kathryn continually delivered exactly what we needed. She kept us posted, quickly arranged an engagement shoot and was always happy to go with the flow, although her professional advice was very much appreciated as well. On the day of our wedding, she was perfect. Unobtrusive to the point that we barely noticed she was there, which was ideal for the reportage shots we wanted; but focused and gently authoritative when it came to whizzing through our formal poses and group shots. Kathryn was completely flexible and we really don’t know how she managed to shoot as much as she did! From start to finish, she was calming, cheerful, patient and enthusiastic. This lady clearly loves weddings! She even laced me into my dress whilst my Mum and bridesmaids were busy dealing with a last-minute hiccup. Invaluable! Our shots are superb. The wedding was traditional yet relaxed and the pictures capture that perfectly. During the morning session at my parents’ house, Kathryn put together some beautifully creative shots completely off the cuff and used some wonderful backdrops and props which I’d never have thought of even though they were staring us in the face! These pictures were a gorgeous surprise when we received our images. We’ve had wonderful compliments from friends, family and colleagues – even those who weren’t there on the day really enjoyed the pictures and especially our tearjerking highlights slideshow. It’s the perfect reminder of a beautiful day. Thank you for everything!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for our incredible wedding photo’s and wonderful service you provided on our wedding day. From the moment we met you we knew you had to be with us to help record our day. You ‘got’ our style and the feeling we wanted to capture. The results are above and beyond our expectations! Every guest has since mentioned what a lovely team you were and although very professional, you felt like a friend to everyone…especially our children! You calmed me when i panicked a little, you even helped with bows, dresses, veils, buttonholes and everything in between. It would not have run as smoothly without you and for that extra service we are eternally thankful. The way in which you presented our photo’s to us and the little details are just impeccable and beautiful (just like your photo’s) We will be recommending you highly. We are already thinking about our next event that we might require a photographer for lol! With huge Thanks and Love, Mr & Mrs Treend xx
Kathryn visited us at home after we were impressed with her website and the photos we saw there. She was warm and easy to talk to about our thoughts on what we wanted. With ease, She understood our requirements, and kept costs within reasonable range and no pressure to spend more than we felt was appropriate. We had an engagement shoot at the venue beforehand and the pictures are beautiful. On our wedding day, everything (and I mean everything) went so smoothly, Kathryn was almost invisible for much of the day, and yet captured all the important moments, and many otherwise unseen moments from around the venue. She acted professionally, and yet with a warm and friendly demeanour which allowed her to easily capture our guests and the whole event lovingly and exceptionally well. The results speak for themselves, and you know you have a good selection of great pictures when you’re struggling to keep the chosen ones for the main album down to the right numbers! Every little detail was taken care of, with each one a new and pleasurable surprise, down to the choice of USB memory stick, and the packaging for it, everything was exceptional. We could not have wished for anything better, and recommend her to everyone.
I had a post-wedding shoot with Kathryn and I could not have asked for better results. Kathryn has such a caring, relaxed manner and she had some fantastic suggestions for poses and props. Kathryn took my brief for the shoot and matched it perfectly. I love my modern, informal and natural photographs. Kathryn is truly a natural and has a way with people. She really helps you to relax into having your photograph taken. This really makes her stand out from the rest. I only wish we had heard of Kathryn in time for the actual wedding day as we certainly would have chosen to go with her. We prefer the post shoot photos to the actual wedding photos! We highly recommend Kathryn as a fantastic photographer.
Wow! Well that’s all Lawrie and I could say after we received our wedding album! We wanted a relaxed feel to the photo’s, and this is exactly what was delivered. Kathryn’s style is one of calm control, from the moment she arrived in the morning until long into the evening, she quickly saw the best light and opportunities. From capturing my dress, the flowers, and all of the preparation without fuss through to everyone enjoying the evening she was there, quietly in the background. this meant that people weren’t always aware that they were being photographed, resulting in them all appearing relaxed. During and after the ceremony she managed to shepherd everyone into some brilliant poses, that look completely natural but are also fun. From the men flying in formation (you had to be there) to the ladies being models for a few minutes. We particularly loved the ones of the two of us, taken around the grounds of the wedding breakfast venue. They are truly stunning, but somehow manage to capture the emotion and feel of the day. I cant stop looking at them, and thoroughly recommend her. We will certainly call her whenever we have a family event that needs to be immortalised!
Kathryn was our photographer for our wedding in July 2014. She was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. She knew exactly what shots were needed to capture our special day so beautifully. She was so helpful; nothing was too much trouble for her throughout the entire day. Her sister who accompanied her was also lovely, giving us some fantastic extra shots from different perspectives. My husband, who had been extremely picky about photographers, was extremely impressed with her superb photography after meeting for our first consultation and gave no further thought in looking for a wedding photographer. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants high quality, bespoke photography, with a friendly and personal service.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the contribution that you made to our wedding day. Your calm, polite and professional manner was so reassuring and we can’t wait to see the photos when they are ready to view. You were unobtrusive, pleasant and patient as you tried to organise everyone. We are so pleased to have chosen you as our photographer.
Kathryn shot our small wedding ceremony in February 2013. I am quite camera shy but the gentle directions she gave made me more confident and I was thrilled with the results. Kathryn managed to capture the intimate, informal nature of our big day perfectly and on débuting the wedding album we have had such wonderful reactions from our friends and family who couldn’t be with us on the day, they all said the pictures made it come to life for them too. All in all, I couldn’t recommend KLP Photography highly enough to anyone looking for a personal, genuine photography service.
