Perth wedding photographer Kate Drennan captures epic love stories in Perth, Australia, Queenstown, Scotland and the Maldives
My couples are adventurous souls that connect with my work and the idea that being married is what it’s all about, the ‘wedding’ is just the celebration.
They are real and down to earth, fun, carefree, creative individuals planning on including personal touches to make their wedding day
about them. I love couples who aren’t afraid to get dirty, cause with my love for adventure, let’s face it you probably will.
Being a Destination Wedding Photographer, I love travelling and will travel just about anywhere to capture a good love story!
I don’t mind at all if you are camera shy and don’t want to spend the day posing for photos.
You can have rad as heck styling or no styling at all, as long as you’re crazy in love (and not afraid to show it) that’s all that matters.
I’m Kate, a visual storyteller drawn to capturing life as it unfolds, moments along the way that you may or may not remember after the day.
To be truly honest I don’t love weddings, I do believe strongly in marriage and the connection between people.
That is the cornerstone to my approach, making images that reflect who you are together.
Moody light, confetti cannons, epic locations, giant sparklers, llamas, cliff top ceremonies and spraying bubbles everywhere may make for great photos but a fun bunch of people, a connection & happiness make imagery come alive.
I’m a sucker for personalised vows, usually hiding behind the camera trying to hold it together during the ceremony.
Planning a wedding myself has opened up my eyes to a whole new dimension to the wedding planning process!
I used to live for styling and epic locations but after being married I have realised what images I will look back on years to come are those quiet intimate moments and connection with my hubby and guests.
I have begun creating a Wedding Planning Blog filled with ramblings and a stack of info on where to begin,
my favourite wedding suppliers and the process I took along the way so go check it out (unless your the Grammar Police, then maybe just skim through v. quickly)!
I would love to hear your story!
So go on, think about it.
What connects you to each other? What makes you two ‘you’?
Every time you go to book something or plan the day ask yourself, why you doing it, what does it mean to you?
Do it your way.
People who value photographs as one of the most important products/ service at the wedding are my people.
Photos to them are lifelong memories and precious heirlooms to share with future generations.
They see photographs as apart of their legacy and realise they are the only thing left with after the day has past to tell their story.
They look at the image of their dad handing them over at the ceremony and remember that first time they have ever seen him get emotional,
they can smell the fresh air from their intimate mountain elopement, they can feel the squeeze of their now late Grandma during the congratulations.
They print their photos Cause let’s be honest, Facebook and Instagram aren’t going to be around forever and nothing beats the smell and touch of a Fine Art Album.
I love the fact that I can capture love bonds and moments on paper and every time you look at an image you are transported back to that very moment.
How you felt, how in love you were, what those people around you meant to you.
I love that people who weren’t even at your wedding can feel the connection and emotion.
