A photograph can capture a million memories and it’s at those special milestones in our lives, a skilled and creative photographer is needed to add that unique ‘wow’ factor. I have over 12 years’ experience in various arenas including portraits and nursery shots, but I specialise in wedding photography.

My love for photography means every new project fills me with a burning enthusiasm and a real desire to turn a client’s dream day into a splendid memory they and their families can endlessly enjoy. I believe that true photographic skills lies in more than just having the correct qualifications or knowing the right lens to use or which focal setting is best on a cloudy day; the key is to understand the needs of each client, so I can capture them at their very best.

I take pride in what I do and I love what I do. I have the skills to get people to relax as well as the ability to build confidence for them to produce the best photos of their day. I’ve successfully managed to get some babies off to sleep for their parents to enjoy their wedding breakfast! Occasionally there are sensitivites where my clients have to deal with an unfortunate bereavement and I have the experience to enable clients to feel comfortable with me through an emotional day.

As far as fees are concerned, I tailor my charges to your budget. Is your special day on the horizon?

Let me help you capture those memories forever. Please get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you and working with you soon!

We recently had Katrina at Pictures of You take photos for our Wedding and we really would not of wanted anyone else. Katrina was brilliant, she knew exactly what she was doing, she made us feel so at ease and made it so much fun. Katrina turned the photos around so quick so we all could see them through a private photo album on her website and the photos look amazing!! Having photos taken for something as important as your wedding, you can really put your trust in Katrina in getting the best photos. We would Highly recommend.

Katrina worked really hard to get some amazing photos of our wedding whilst respecting our wish to keep the photography informal, unobtrusive and relaxed. We gave her a list (quite a long list actually!) of the different groups and shots we would like and she got them all!
All our guests commented how friendly and relaxed Katrina was - it was actually like having a really good friend there with a great camera. She met us beforehand and really listened to what we wanted from the day, she made some good suggestions and was happy to put herself out, walking back with us along the coastal path after the wedding and even going (in her own time) to take some extra photos of our venue and cake.
I would highly recommend Pictures of You and we are delighted with the beautiful photos of our special day

Brilliantly patient with fractious kids, unhurried and unruffled she gives enough time to capture that perfect shot. Lovely sense of humor too means that kids and adults respond to her.

Katrina was helpful from start to finish with our wedding. At the church she accommodated what we wanted and when we got to the reception she was fantastic with 150 guests to deal with and a lot of children. She made it all very fun and enjoyable and the photos were absolutely perfect! I can't recommend her enough. We will defiantly be calling again when christenings come round.

Made us feel very comfortable on the day and made it really fun. When we left the wedding party to take some photos by the river, Katrina is very creative using nature like using trees and catching birds flying in the background to create a magical romantic setting ! She has a great imagination to create special photos ! Would defiantly recommend we loved our album :o)

From the work I have seen, Katrina is a highly skilled photographer with many years of experience.
She has a friendly manner and is able to keep control of any situation.

I haven't yet had occasion to use Bark's services myself but I've seen a lot of the work produced and the photos are truly stunning. Photographing children is not easy but this Katrina has a real talent to capture them in character.

Met lovely Katrina at one of our friends wedding on October 20th, and found her to be such a lovely lady with such an open humble and fun personality and seeing the photos she took I'm incredibly impressed with the quality and depth of the photos! Love them! Would recommend her to everyone planning to get married! Lovely to meet you Katrina! (I was the lady who spoke to you about your camera at Carey's Manor) xxx

Pictures of You Q&A

Pictures of You Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Rapport with clients, loads of experience in many 'live photography' situations, together with complete understanding of any light situations!

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

I ask about themselves, their work, hobbies, what's important to them about their day, about their family. I start by asking them about the plans they have so far and how I can bring the best out of their day for them.

What do you love most about your job?

Lots! I love the privilege of working with people and the results of their day in the captured images I produce. I love their happiness when they see what I've managed to capture for them - the moments they hoped they looked ok - only to have my photos and find they look amazing! Together with their happiness at being able to look back and relive a day that they have spent (often) a long time planning but which goes in a flash - and the moments they miss which I capture!

What inspired you to start your own business?

My passion for photographs, capturing moments of people's lives as a beautiful record for them of that time in their lives.

Why should our clients choose you?

If you want dedication to your day, amazing value for your investment, professional products and most of all - truly beautiful images from your day - pick me.
