LAUREN & MIKE
“Kate Lowe is a stunning photographer, her creative eye is second to none. Kate was such a joy to have at our wedding, she blended in seamlessly and captured so many people and there personalities. I can truly say by the end of the day Kate was not just our photographer but our friend. We received so many amazing compliments from our guests and once we had had seen our final images, she made us cry. Kate went above and beyond and it really showed through her stunning images.”
DONNA & CHRIS
“Kate has been brilliant right from first contact, she has always been really prompt in her replies and so so helpful. She helped us with working out our timelines and came up with some brilliant ideas for photos (including some amazing sparkler ones!) All the way through the day she was almost invisible! I never felt once like there was someone taking photos yet they are all beautiful. For our couple shots she made us completely relaxed and everything she’s sent us is perfect”
COLIN & MOL
“Kate was warm, friendly and reassuring. One glimpse at our photographs and short film would explain why we are so in love with the images from our day. Kate showcased the mood and happiness in a natural and unobtrusive way; I can honestly say we were unaware of her presence once the ceremony began. There is one shot of my total happiness – me dancing on the dance floor and thinking how magical the day was – and Kate caught it. It’s must see. I’ve recommended her to friends and will continue to!”
CAT & CHRISTIAN
“Kate captured our wedding day perfectly. We were quite specific on the type of images we wanted and she orchestrated it brilliantly. From our first meeting with her she knew what we wanted, but wasn’t shy with putting her own ideas & knowledge forward. On the wedding say itself she integrated herself with the guests and everyone commented on how competent & talented she is. You only need to see our wedding pictures to understand why we are so happy.”
REBECCA & JAMIE
“Kate went above and beyond our expectations. She did so much research of the area and venue that we captured shots we didn’t think possible. The finished shots told the story and the magic of the day! I would highly reccomend her to anyone who wants great quality, and a a brilliant personality to put everyone at ease.”
AMY & GAVIN
“Kate was recommended to us by a friend and I have to say we are delighted with our whole experience. From the first meeting, Kate was easy to get on with, focused on our needs, had wise words of advice regarding our day and gave us an immediate great first impression. On the day Kate blended in incredibly well taking some amazing shots that were a wonderful surprise when we saw our photo shoot online. Highly recommended!!!!!!”
RACHEL & CHRIS
Kate photographed our wedding and she was absolutely brilliant - we couldn't ask for a better photographer to capture our big day. You can tell that Kate adores weddings and she has a clear passion for photography. She was wonderful to have around all day and she made everyone feel at so ease in front of the camera. Booking Kate as a photographer is worth every penny - the memories which Kate has captured so beautifully are priceless.
LEANNE & JAMES
“Kate was awesome! I hate having my photo taken but she was able to get me to relax and actually enjoy the process and even more suprisingly I actually look half decent in some of the photos – pretty much unheard of! Most importantly though it felt like we were getting photos of “our” wedding not just some generic wedding photos.”
Kind Words &
SHOULD I GET A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
You may have seen a lot of photographers offering the services of a second shooter. If you're wondering if this is for you, it offers a lot of value when it comes to money paid versus all the extra photographs received. You can expect all the angles covered, and if your wedding includes a lot of detail, or over 100 guests, its a great option to consider!
I use a few wonderful second shooters whose style are very similar to my own, and have their own thriving wedding photography businesses, so you know you’re getting experienced, skilled professionals covering every aspect. They cover the groom getting ready whilst I'm with the bride, an extra angle of the ceremony as seen on the right, and more guests while the family group shots are being taken. You can add a second photographer for £250, but if you're having a highlight film alongside your photography, it's already included.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When can we expect you?
I usually arrive with plenty of time before the wedding, to have a look around, shoot any details and meet you and your family. I’m based in Derbyshire and tend to concentrate most of my work to the Midlands, but I do travel throughout the UK to cover weddings which is easy from my central location! Venues in Scotland require a two night stay which would be an extra £100.
How does the payment process work?
When you book me, upon signing the contract, you are required to pay the booking deposit, this secures your date. The rest of the payment can be done any time before the wedding, up to 30 days before the wedding. Accepted are BACS, cheque and Paypal.
What equipment do you use?
I use Nikon pro-level gear, I always have multiple camera bodies, a number of lenses, and more memory cards than I need at all weddings. I also carry flashes and a few tried and trusted little pieces of kit for creative portraits.
Are you insured?
Yes! I do this full time and am covered by public liability and public indemnity insurance for your peace of mind.
When do we get our photographs?
It takes us up to 6 weeks to get your photographs ready and edited. The last thing I would want to do is rush over your wedding, just to get it done earlier, so delivery dates change depending on low / high season. If for whatever reason, you need your photographs sooner, do let me know and I will see if it is possible.
How do we get our photographs?
Every one of my couples get their very own private online gallery, password protected and social media friendly. Your edited final pictures will already be sized and ready to be downloaded, shared or even better, printed! I have a print shop integrated into all my galleries so printing your photographs is super easy.
I hear you’ve won some awards?
I’ve been super lucky in my career to win a few, in all different fields of photography. Although it’s my lovely couples that drive and motivate me, I’m pretty proud to say I worked darn hard for them! Hopefully the list will continue to grow.
