I’m the Kathryn behind Photography by Kathryn and here’s the page where you find out a little bit about me.
I’m a Yorkshire wedding & commercial photographer – I’m chatty, pretty laid back, hard working and a bit of a perfectionist too. I like to get to know people – it’s a big part of how I work and putting people at ease really matters to me.
My career began in marketing, in which photography had a big part to play. I’m very proud to say that I had some high profile roles in some of the region’s biggest and most well-known theatres, museums and visitor attractions. And in those roles, I was behind the camera a lot – commissioning photography for branding and design and working with press photographers. I loved my work when I could be creative and devise new ways of reaching and communicating with people and that’s still a key element in my life as a photographer.
I work full time as a wedding and commercial photographer in and around West and North Yorkshire and Lancashire too. Having the countryside on my doorstep means that I don’t have to look too far for some beautiful locations to work in.
As a wedding photographer based near Skipton, North Yorkshire, I get to work in some truly stunning locations and varied wedding venues from National Trust properties to stately homes, boutique hotels to tepee and marquee wedding days in woodlands and out in the countryside. And I love a chic city wedding just as much too!
I enjoy drinking great coffee in nice places, walking my Springer Spaniel and scribbling my lists in the very many notebooks I collect (you can never have too many in my book)! I’m a big fan of interior design; crafters, artisans and those who make and create unique and beautiful things. And I love to photograph their stories to promote their business and brand.
Oh yes, and I’m a musician too (I always forget that bit!) I’ve been a pianist since the age of 6 – I keep making it my mission to find more time to play – it’s my little get away from the world.
I hope to meet with you to chat about your wedding photography or if you’re a business looking for some creative lifestyle photography – I’d love to hear from you too
