Here are some ‘tasting notes’ to help you know what to look for in a portfolio. Artistry alone is not enough – I’m a stickler for detail. So everything is crisp, sharp and perfectly exposed in bright, rich colours that are true to the original. No need for filters which look dated in five years time. #nofilter, your wedding is already so beautiful. Black and whites are punchy, clean and draw attention to emotion and movement. About 20%, and not just chosen at random! (You get them all in colour anyway so you have the choice.) People look relaxed, natural, happy and confident because they are. Sensitive use of light – natural and my own – to compliment or enhance the mood. And gorgeous detail shots, taking the time to put flowers, shoes, rings etc in a clever setting and find the perfect angles.

A photographers portfolio is the best way to get a feel for their style and the kind of photographs they produce. You should really love the photos you see there if you’re thinking of booking them. But it’s not the whole story! You also need to see complete weddings to get a sense of the quality of coverage throughout the whole day. Check out some of our real weddings here.

NB. If you’re booking Kate for your wedding, her individual portfolio is here.

"Thank you so so so much for such beautiful photographs and being so fantastic on the day. We were very lucky to have you at our wedding, we will treasure these forever. Think I already flicked through every photo at least 10 times! Thank you again." - Paul & Arina, Ettington Park
