  • Hello!

    My name is Katie, I am a photographer and I like to shoot:

    Weddings, portraits, pets, couples and kids.
    Mum's happy tears and toddler tantrums.
    Baby bathtime and puppy playtime.
    Kiddy feet and bridal shoes.
    Connection and emotion.
    Quirky and kitsch.
    Documentary style.
    Lifestyle.
    You.

    Have camera, will travel. But if you'd like a photographer closer to home, look here.

Fran + Ray {Noosa Engagement Photographer}

Fran and Ray. Ray and Fran. All engaged and stuff and preparing to get married in a teeny tiny ceremony in October. As you can see, they’re really damn cute and quite obviously made for each other. Photographed in Noosa, but not on the beachy backdrop we are used to seeing – Fran asked for something a bit more industrial, which was music to my ears (eyes?).

Very much looking forward to your wedding, guys.

Kristy + Pete: Married {Noosa Wedding Photographer}

It was almost a year ago that Sydneysiders, Kristy and Pete, contacted me about shooting their wedding. I was thrilled to be asked, not only because they are lovely people, but because they were getting married in Noosa. Hooray! A local wedding for me. Even though I live here, I rarely shoot weddings here – I tend to end up in Brisbane or further. The prospect of driving 10 minutes home to my own bed was very comforting, as was knowing I would be shooting in a place I know like the back of my hand.

When I arrived, the girls were very quietly and calmly having their hair and make up done – this is always the case with the ladies – pacing themselves for the big day. Then I popped over to see the boys who (and this is also always the case) were in no hurry, drinking beer and listening to some 90s R&B (ok, so the 90s R&B is not always the case).* Still, the usual mad shower and ironing panic happened as I arrived. The boys were super cooperative and polite, perhaps the first ones to ever thank me for taking their photos. Then it was back to see the ladies again, where things were getting a bit more real and Kristy got into that amazing sparkly dress.

Noosa being the fickle beast that she is, put on a gorgeous sunny day – but also provided an epic wind. It was so windy that Kristy, to her absolute credit, did away with her veil at the beginning of the ceremony and laughed about it. After the ceremony we headed to the National Park for some images of the newly married couple. Kristy, to her credit again, thought nothing of trekking the dirt path in her Jimmy Choos. High five, lady. And then it was party time, where I was treated as one of the guests. Thank you so much guys, you made my job easy.

 

*I would like you all to know, I’ve had Montell Jordan’s ‘This Is How We Do It’ in my head for 3 weeks.

If you were a seed, well I’d be a pod.

And if you were a kiss, I know I’d be a hug..’

A while ago I donated a session as a prize for a trivia night at my sons’ school. Lovely Terri-Anne was the one who outbid everyone else and walked away victorious. Or so I like to think. Thanks for being such champs, Harris family.

Adam + Astra: Married {Sea World Wedding}

‘Home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you…’

- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes

All weddings are special. They truly are. Each has its own unique little bits and pieces that make it so.

However, Adam and Astra’s wedding went that little bit further. Ok, a lot further. It was a surprise wedding, at Sea World. I’m just going to let that sink in.

An massive effort for both Astra and Adam – can you imagine trying to keep that secret and organise the whole thing? Astra stayed back at the hotel, telling everyone she was ‘meeting a friend for lunch’, while everyone else toddled off for a fun day at Sea World. A day that ended a leeeeetle bit differently to how they imagined.

But that’s not the best part. The best part is that Adam and Astra’s kids were there to witness this magical afternoon.

Thank you so much guys, I feel so blessed that you chose me to be the one to document this amazing day for you.
