We are Kat and Greg, K&G Photography and together, we have been photographing wonderful wedding moments since 2014. We live in Nelson, Lancashire and usually provide our services across the whole of the North West England, Midlands and Yorkshire.
Our story began in the Christmas Eve of 2013 at friends' do where we met. It didn't take long to find out that we share the same passion to photography. The ability to do something that we both enjoy gives us that boost and motivation to capture better and better images.
natural, modest, low key
Our photography style can be best described as a mixture of traditional and high fashion photography and for the most part of the big day remains in the canons of an informal photo reportage, however we do appreciate couples' individual requests for posed photography, which can also be found in our portfolio.
During the wedding, we usually work as a team. Every photographer needs an assistant, so unless two pairs of eyes are preferred or there's a need to cover two locations at once, one of us takes the camera, whilst the other helps with the secondary gear, be it a reflector, light source or a backdrop. The only exception is the early morning, where Greg usually only just drops in to say ‚‘Hi’ to the Bride and Her Party before disappearing to join Groom and later, the guests invited for the ceremony, where Kat joins in with the Bridal Party for the formal part to take place.
Apart from two sections (Photo Session and Requests), our portfolio consists of the selection of captured in the moment images. The only staged photographs are:- the must-have photo with witnesses, photos with wedding party and family and any individual requests (i.e. confetti, heart, the Ladies etc.)
See the difference
With cameras readily available to anyone, it’s normal that many of your friends and family will be happily snapping away throughout the course of the day and will likely produce hundreds of images. Having all these little yet precious moments covered, the reason you are looking into investing some of your wedding budget into professional photography is therefore quality of produced images and their contents. ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ as the saying goes. With creative use of various photography techniques, we can achieve just that, which in the end results in conveying your unique story through stills.
Kat & Greg they made our day so special from start to finish they where absolutely amazing
Kat and Greg went above and beyond on our day, I would recommend them to everyone, great couple, amazing work! Thanks you two.
Capturing moments that last a lifetime
With any one wedding professional attending the Big Day, the things usually go smoother than without one. With this in mind, a singer, magician, dance troupe, caricature artist or any other wedding professional, each will add that extra spark to ensure extraordinary experience with lots of memories for you and your guests.
Except only for videographers perhaps, we will be the only ones to stay with you from early till late and we are there to capture those memories throughout the day.
More than a camera
Professional grade cameras are capable of producing outstanding results, but a camera doesn't take pictures on their own and needs to be in experienced hands to be benefited from in full. Whilst most of your guests will be enjoying their day with a glass or a bottle in their hands, we're working and if something did happen that needed photographing in an instant, we're ready. With advanced lighting systems we can capture those wonderful moments, day or night, without compromising the quality of final images. We also offer a free advice at all stages of your wedding planning.
A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it
From Preparations through to the First Dance to bridalwear to individual requests, our portfolio covers all aspects of our style, but we always encourage and ask couples to spare some time for a get-to-know chat. That will give you a better picture of our style and personalities as well as provide an opportunity to discuss your plans.
Usually, couples find it easier to meet up in the comfort of their own home, but if you find a wedding venue or a quiet location of your choice might be more suitable, or would like to visit us in Nelson, let us know.
