Hello, I’m Katy
I’m a dedicated and passionate wedding photographer with a relaxed, fun and natural style. I love to photograph weddings as I get to meet interesting people from all walks of life. It also takes me to new and exciting places I may have otherwise never have known. There is nothing more rewarding than capturing one the most memorable days of our lives, knowing that family and friends will look back to my photographs for generations to come. In 2011, having trained with and personally assisted some of the best documentary photojournalists and wedding photographers in the UK, I was inspired to start Katy & Co. The business has grown to become a collaboration between myself and my partner Wayne (we are a wife and husband team!). Over the years we have brought together our various artistic backgrounds of photojournalism, graphics, art and architecture to craft a style that is natural, beautiful, narratively focused and cinematically styled. When i’m not photographing weddings I do graphic design, read, paint, sing, design and hand bind books, swim, go on country walks and most importantly explore new and exciting things to eat!
I’m Wayne, your second photographer
I’ve always been a curious about photography and some years ago, Katy asked me to join her photographing weddings. Having this time to experience weddings with Katy, meant that our style has become unified and coherent. We also know what each other are thinking (especially when it comes to who’s doing the dishes!) and we work as a strong, reliable team. On your wedding day I manage the logistics, keep track of timings as well as guiding guests during the family formal and group photo sessions. We decided that as a duo, it meant that we could offer a more rounded experience of your day. Having both of us in the lead up to the ceremony, means we give equal weighting to you and your partner, which is always a lovely surprise when you receive your album. I’ve been enjoying it ever since and working closely with Katy means I can see your day from a different perspective. For me it’s about relationships with people and experiencing new and exciting places. Having trained as an architect, I have an eye for detail, spaces and how venues have been designed to frame and lift our experiences.
Our modern approach to wedding photography is friendly and free from pretension! Incorporating documentary-style realism with cinematic flourishes we aim to record all your memorable moments in beautiful, honest imagery. Relax and enjoy your day as we blend in with your guests, nothing contrived, re-enacted or cheesy! We will just capture everything as it happens naturally.
We aim to photograph the essential, memorable moments of your ceremony as well as documenting the minutiae and personal details that make your day individual to you. Couples frequently tell us that with so much to think about, they appreciate us having our active input and advice on planning and logistics (Wayne’s forte!) and taking the initiative – giving direction where needed! Your wedding day is all about you and your story. We like to get to know you before the day, so you feel relaxed and can be yourself as we document your unrepeatable day! In our experience, the better we know you, the more natural and genuine the photos we capture. We love working with creative couples whose weddings is a celebration of their personalities as much as their love.
