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!

 

If I’m not out shooting or sitting at my iMac editing, you’ll probably find me chasing a little black ball on a squash court, or meeting some friends for sushi.  As soon as school finishes for the day, my mom hat comes on and I spend a few hours with my son in the afternoons. I truly love having the flexibility to spend the afternoons with Mikey, and being able to meet with all my fabulous clients for random cups of coffee and cake hearing all the fabulous plans for weddings, engagement shoots and family sessions.

 


 

 

 

Have a bit of a poke around this little corner of the internet and schedule a consultation to plan your shoot!

Let’s talk about showing off those portraits

I love people who love photographs.  I mean, really – that’s what keeps me going.  But it makes me so sad when I hear that they have loads of photographs sitting on a DVD or USB, collecting dust in a desk drawer (or that they aren’t even sure where they are!). You saved up for that shoot, and now you don’t get to see them every day.

 

 

Then there’s also the mammoth task of finding the perfect product to showcase your portraits, finding a local supplier that makes the product that you have fallen in love with, then figuring out how to create and order it.  Wow – that’s a lot of work.  And you shouldn’t have to do it.  I’m here to help.  I have done the research for you.  I have beautiful samples for you to look at and touch (none of this ordering something on the internet and it’s just not what you expected when it arrives), and I do all the hard work of designing and ordering the perfect product for you.  I have teamed up with an amazing graphic designer to make your albums just perfect, and some amazing suppliers (most of whom don’t supply to the public) throughout the country to bring you the very very best.

 

You deserve it.

 

Albums

All your images lovingly laid out in an album that’s perfect for you.  Do you need one that is sturdy enough to withstand the kids looking at the images, or is this just a special album for your partner? We have the best options for you
 


Canvas

Perfectly rendered colours in the perfect size for your room (talk to us about creating a mockup of your images in your room!).

 
 
 

Prints and Frames

Beautifully matted prints make for a modern display option, or can be stored in a custom folio box for their protection. Classic frames or multi-image layouts custom ordered just for you.
