i'm catherine


get to know me

coffee drinker

I love coffee. I drink way more than I should, but will never give it up. Flat whites just make me so happy.

lover of love

After trying just about every type of photography out there, I've narrowed my focus down to couples in love. I love capturing love, there's nothing better!

book lover

I read a lot, and love collecting books. I've just started building my home library and its the coziest room ever.

award winner

This is something I'm proud of. I've won a few awards for my everyday work. These are photos I've given to couples, and I couldn't be prouder of that!

I have always loved stories.
I've been reading for as long as I can remember, and happily fall into different worlds regularly. I love watching movies, and finding out who gets the girl, or how the story ends.

And I love telling stories through photos.
Capturing the moments as they unfold, giving you some guidance to feel like yourself on the other side of the camera. Seeing how photos fall together to tell stories of moments, or days. And years later I love knowing I've given the gift of memories of such special moments.

If you've read this far then Id guess you love stories too, and maybe that's why your here.


lets talk about you for a sec...

If I had to guess I'd say your either engaged or planning to be very soon (congratulations!).
You've looking to start the wedding planning process, but don't really know where to start. You understand that photography is important, and you want to capture your day - but how do you narrow down all the photographers out there? How do you pick?

Well with me it starts with my enquiry form.
From there we grab a coffee (or tea, or milkshake, or soda) and chat. See if we get along, a lot like a first date. And if things go well then well get you booked in!

B & N

My partner and I loved our shoot with Catherine! It's always a little awkward to have your photo taken, but Catherine put us right at ease and made the whole thing feel quite natural. We're very happy, and would highly recommend.

kind words


K & D

Catherine did an amazing job, capturing us so well, despite us being scared we would be too awkward! She has such a calming and confident way of communicating, is down to earth and totally nailed the photos! We would recommend Catherine to anyone who wants stunning photos! We love ours so much, so thank you!!

R & B

We were lucky enough to get Catherine for the photoshoot of our proposal and couldn’t recommend her enough! She was very professional and made the whole experience seamless. The photos she captured were exactly what we were after!
