About Me

Hi, I’m Katie and I’m a Cape Town based photographer who specialises in wedding, engagement, family, newborn and maternity photography.

 

I have always loved taking photos and when I bought my first digital SLR, you could find me with it almost all the time. I attended a close friend’s wedding in 2007, and couldn’t resist taking photographs of all the beautiful details they had so carefully planned. I fell in love with being able to preserve all the memories from such a momentous day, and I set out to learn and practice as much as I could from then onwards. That wedding changed my career goals, and my life – I met my husband that night!

 

The need to have a camera in my hand all the time increased when my son was born in June 2012, and he has now taken ownership of that first digital SLR. I am looking forward to seeing him join the company when he’s a little older.

 

While most of my time is dedicated to photographing special moments in the lives of others; when I do get free time I spend it making special moments of my own with my precious little boy, my family and friends. On very rare occasions you can find me taking snippets of time for myself on a trail run, on the squash court, at the gym or curled up reading a book or watching a movie or series.

 

I am inspired by love ~ Love between a husband and wife, mother and child, best friends, families and even beloved pets.

 

Feel free to look around for more information, or to find out more about the gear I use.
