Katie of Katie Mortimore Photography
I am (I believe!) a highly professional reportage photographer, working predominately across the South of England, but also further afield. Based on the Hampshire, Wiltshire border on the A303 many venues are within very easy reach for me.
Although offering traditional wedding photography elements, including groups and portraits, I concentrate on capturing natural reactions and emotion. Although often working solo, I also work alongside good friend and fellow photographer Liz, to allow me to literally be in two places at once.
If you are a couple not naturally at ease in front of the camera, and looking for someone able to fit in with ease with you and your guests to capture them enjoying your day then I am the photographer for you. No rigid poses, just real honest love, emotions and laughter.
I am a 30 something, army wife and mum of the tallest small child on earth! Originally training as a lawyer, my creative side shone through and couldn’t be dampened, and led to me taking up photography professionally about 6 or 7 years ago, building to where I am now, as a full time wedding and fine art equine photographer. I was also a Finalist in the global 2017 and 2018 Fine Art Photography awards. I’m a country girl at heart with a strong horsey background, which leads on to my equine photography work which compliments my weddings
Tell us what makes your business special.
I take pride in being more than just a wedding photographer. Your wedding day can be stressful I therefore use my calming demeanour to its best effect by helping prevent any unnecessary drama. From lacing up a dress, holding a speech, pinning a buttonhole, solving any problems that may arise and much more, if I can help (between taking the essential photos) I absolutely will. I have been commended for my creative problem solving and overall calming influence helping to make sure they have the very best day. This of course, is also accompanied by beautifully creative images that portray the magic of the wedding.
Why do your customers fall in love with you?
I love that I can count several of my previous brides, who were originally strangers, now as great friends, and I believe this is a real reflection of my personality. I’m a creative, with a logical brain, who just doesn’t do stress. This allows me to fit in with strangers with ease, whilst remaining professional meaning guests and my couples forget I’m there, allowing me to create and capture moments that others may not.
“Katie has an incredible eye for ‘the moment’ and her photos of my wedding and then portfolio shots of my horses and dogs are some of my most treasured possessions. I can not recommend her highly enough. If you’re looking for high quality, professionally produced photos, then look no further!”
