We used Kate to take both the portrait and brand photography for our new website. Kate was extremely approachable and, in particular, really understood our intention to communicate our brand via high-quality and unique photography. Extremely prompt, efficient and professional. . Kate takes a very relaxed but professional approach to her photography and gave me every confidence that we were going to get some great photos. As expected, we have been delighted with the end product and the strong impact that the photography has on our new website.

Kate has been a key photographer for our business - POPdining. Her work has provided us with a continuing documentation and visual marketing stream far exceeding our expectations. She brings fresh vision and creative determination to her work, ultimately reflecting extremely well on ours. She shows great knowledge and understanding of her medium and is always looking to improve upon anything we could even imagine. I can’t recommend her highly enough
— Andreas Eggmann, POPdining Auckland
Thanks so much for being such an important part of our day. We knew from the first meeting with Kate that she would be the perfect photographer to document our wedding day. Kate’s personable but relaxed style suited us and our wedding day and Kate did an amazing job at putting us and all the guests at ease in order to get the best photos. Everyone at the wedding warmed instantly to Kate and her big smile! Kate’s friendly yet focussed attitude meant that we easily trusted her capture all the day’s special moments. We had such fun at the creative shoot – we’re a little shy so didn’t expect it to be fun – but it was actually one of the day’s highlights. And the photos speak for themselves! They are the perfect encapsulation of our day and we couldn’t be happier. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone and everyone! She’ll do a fantastic job and have a huge smile on her face while she does it. Thanks Kate!
