Creative Devon based equine & wedding photographer
So who am I? Well I’m Katie…
A self confessed geek, techy and sci-fi nut. I get on with almost anyone, although was once upon a time the shy kid. I’m a hopeless romantic and an eternal optimist but do employ a heavy dose of realism.
Now the slightly more serious/boring bit I’m 30 something now living in the Devon town of Starcross just south of Exeter. I have recently relocated but I am more than happy to travel back to Wiltshire, Hampshire and beyond. I’m mum of one and wife to my ex army husband. Originally I lived on the island of Jersey, part of the channel islands. I loved it there, it’s beautiful, but it’s very small (9×12 miles at it’s biggest!). I moved to England for university over 20 years ago now and basically never moved back.
I have loved photography for many a year, and love that my passion is my job. Prior to taking up photography full time I originally trained as a lawyer, before moving into supply chain logistics for international food and drinks manufacturers.
When deciding to start photography professionally horses and weddings were the natural choice. I love weddings, and I mean I really LOVE weddings. They are a day of joy and happiness, so what better job can there be, than to share that day with couples? Horses are my life, I may have times without my own but they are always around me in some form. I love their power, compassion and beauty.
Horses, my passion
I’ve ridden from before I could walk, and have competed in all the main disciplines over the years. I’m competed to a decent level (1m30 SJ, Novice eventing and Medium dressage. I’ve qualified for and attended a good few championships on several self produced horses.
Horses are a passion for me, and in reality my lifestyle. Everything in my life in some way is affected by them, even when I don’t actually have one of my own! If you are a horse rider you will know exactly what I mean!
“My job is to preserve time”
It may sound corny but it really is my mantra. I have the ability to preserve memories and in doing so time. In years to come you will be able to look back and refresh your memories of that perfect day, your family or your dearest equine companion. With photos and videos you can time travel
I want to create images that you want to proudly display on your walls. They should be able to remind you daily of that special moment in time.
A synopsis of me!
I’m from the island of Jersey originally but moved to Devon for uni, then to Wiltshire for a while whilst my husband was in the army, and now back to Devon.
Anything Marvel, general sci-fi, Forrest Gump, Shitts Creek, Parks & Rec, The Crown and terribly terribly bad romcom movies. They’re so bad they’re good right?!
I can’t cook half the things I would like to, but I bake a mean rainbow dinosaur unicorn cake. I don’t say no to cake. I may even have been bribed previously with Jaffa cakes and profiteroles!
Total animal lover, except snakes and spiders *shudders*. Horses are obviously my favourite though without a doubt
Main hobby is horse riding. Before I got old & broken I was a pretty decent 800m runner & high jumper.
I’m the 1 in 10 of the british population who doesn’t drink tea (or coffee).
“On the day Katie was prompt, ready for anything (the mini bride kit is wonderful!) and you find yourself thoroughly relaxed in her presence. It was a joy to have Katie involved in our wedding and the photos we have as a result are beautiful and timeless. We can’t recommend her more.“
-Bridget & Ollie
