Beautiful Photography from Katrina Bartlam
There’s something about the atmosphere at a wedding that makes it one of the most exciting place to take photo’s. There are so many emotions that are a joy to capture, countless moments that can form a wonderful image and of course the privilege of being trusted to create a beautiful momento of the most important day in a couple’s life. Documenting the story of the day from start to finish is my speciality – capturing all those minute details that you have spent months planning to perfection to ensure the day really reflects you, the excitement of getting ready in the morning, the laughs and smiles of all your guest, the tears at the speeches, the fun of the dancing.
My style is unobtrusive and relaxed and catches those natural moments, whether it be a look between the bride and groom, a group of friends laughing or the children running around beneath everyone’s feet. I’ll blend in with the other guests, there’ll be no snappy orders or bossing you and your friends and family around. At one point during the wedding I’ll take the happy couple away for about 20 minutes to get some beautiful shots of just the two of you, after all the day is about you!
My best advice to you is really get to know your wedding photographer. So give me a ring, we can go for a coffee and find out what YOU really want from the photo’s of your wedding day.
My style is relaxed and observational. I like to take photos of the day as it unfolds in front of me, rather than lots of staged shots with people looking awkward and uncomfortable! At one point during the day I will spend 20 minutes or so with the bride and groom getting some shots of just the two of you in a quiet moment away from the the other guests. And of course we will spend a little time getting some group family shots, but I suggest keeping these to between 5 and 10 to prevent you spending too long in front of the camera. Otherwise I simply photograph what I see, friends laughing, family hugging, guests drinking, children playing. An accurate portrayal of your incredibly special day.
It is such a great privilege to be asked to be a core part of a wedding day. This is an event that highlights the love and loyalty that is felt between two people and to be asked to capture this is a real honour. Wedding days are full of love and laughter, a chance for friends and family to come together and celebrate and the atmosphere that this creates is unique and incredibly special. It not only provides a wonderful array of photographic opportunities, it also means that my working environment is an absolute joy and one I feel very lucky to have.
I am based on the border of Gloucestershire and Worcestershire but very happy to travel.
