Of all the decisions, choosing a photographer is probably the most important investment you’ll make. Once the glamour of the big day has passed, the confetti has settled, the cake has been eaten (and the lamas have gone home), all you’ll have is your lovely new partner, your rings and your photographs.
It’s so important to me that you feel completely comfortable around me. Because when you let your guard down, laugh, get intimate, and let the world around you fall away, that’s when we’ll get those ‘heart flutter’ moments. The photos that’ll still make your heart skip a beat when you show them to your grandchildren.
And now you’ve entered the crazy world of weddings! When Ryan and I got married, even as a wedding photographer, I was overwhelmed with how many choices there were to make! Venues, themes, cakes, dresses, suits, florists, stationery...there’s so much to decide. Did you know you can get wedding lamas?!
So I want to make at least the photography aspect as fun and easy as possible for you.
So many of my couples say that it was like having an old friend with them on the day. Not only will I take epic natural photographs for you, I’ll subtly guide you through the day, helping you make the most of every moment. I also have been found re-making bouquets, doing up dresses, un-picking a bridesmaid's hair from a fan (yep that really happened!), chatting to Nanna through dinner and dancing with Dad to Sweet Caroline. You’ll spend more time on your wedding day with me, than you will with anyone else. And I’m going to make sure you have the best day ever.

This will vary depending on the hours of coverage you choose and the type of wedding. We never put a limit on the number of images you can receive. For a full day wedding you can expect to receive 600+ images. This will increase if you are using multiple venues or opt for a second photographer.
By far my favourite thing about being a wedding photographer is my couples’ reactions when they see their photos! The excited squeals, the ugly sobs, it’s what I live for! So I try to get to that moment as quickly as possible! I always send a selection of preview photos within 48 hours for you to share with family and friends and the social media world. Your full gallery will take up to 8 weeks for me to lovingly edit and finalise, depending on the size of the gallery and time of year.
You can't photograph weddings in the UK for 8 years without encountering all sorts of weather conditions. I have documented outdoor August ceremonies in pouring rain, November weddings in glorious sunshine and everything in-between. I am completely confident in working in all weather conditions and making the most of your venue and timings if the weather isn't what you anticipated.
Head to the contact page and complete our enquiry form. From there I’ll be in touch with our information guide and to book you in for a zoom call so we can start getting to know each other. Once we’ve talked through all your plans, Ill send you a link to your own private platform where you can complete your contract and pay the £300 deposit.
I have had the pleasure of working with lots of wonderful wedding vendors. Once you have completed your contact form, our information/pricing guide includes a list of my favourite suppliers to work with.
As a Portsmouth wedding photographer, each package includes 100 miles of travel from PO2. But I have easy options if you’re further afield or planning a destination wedding. Once you’ve completed my contact form, I’ll send you my pricing guide, which includes all the travel information. As long as I can get there, I’ll travel to the ends of the earth to be with you on your big day. If it’s more than a 3 hour journey, or a flight, I request accommodation for the nights before and after the wedding. Just so there’s no risk of me getting stuck on the way there, and I can make sure 100% I’ll be there from the very start.
If you are required to postpone your wedding due to Covid restrictions, I will always work with you to move your booking across to a new available date. Giving me as much notice as possible, and a range of date options is always helpful, just so I have the best chance of being able to help.
A second photographer gives you the option to add a second professional photographer to your wedding day. This is brilliant for those of you who would both like your preparations photographed, love candid photographs during drinks receptions or if you are having a wedding with over 100 guests.
As long as I can get there, there is no limit to distance when it comes to photographing your wedding. If more than a 3 hour journey, or a flight, I request accommodation for the night before/after the wedding takes place.
Katie has given us so many beautiful lasting memories of our day. Her approach leading up to our wedding was so relaxed and professional, and we felt at ease right from the start. Her energy and enthusiasm are wonderful to be around and she made the best day of our lives even brighter- we cannot recommend this woman and her mean skills enough!"
"We spotted Katie’s gorgeous work on Instagram and new she was the right person for us!
Katie was exceptional from day one and I absolutely loved sharing our special day with her. She is far more than just an incredible photographer - Katie offered so much support to the bridal party on the morning and was an absolute joy to have around. We are over the moon with our photos and cannot believe how many great moments Katie was able to capture that we will truly cherish forever. If you want someone to take raw and natural photos but still make you feel amazing then Katie is the girl for you!"
"Booking Clearly Wild Photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and I cannot recommend them enough!
On the morning of our wedding day it was like having another friend with me, she was awesome at fitting in and quietly taking photos whilst we were all getting ready. During the day she was discreet and went above and beyond to capture our day so well! When we went to bed in the early hours after our wedding Katie had already sent me two pictures from the day. It was so special to receive them so quickly. I would recommend Katie to anyone. She is very talented and a pure delight. We can’t thank her enough."
"Katie was amazing from the first time we made contact with her. She was friendly, professional and really listened to the sort of photography we wanted.
