Perth wedding photographer Kate Drennan captures epic love stories in Perth, Australia, Queenstown, Scotland and the Maldives
YOUR STYLE //
My couples are drunk in love everyday people 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.
I don’t mind at all if you are camera shy and don’t want to spend the day posing for photos.
I find beauty in the quiet, awkward and raw moments where you are free to be yourselves.
You can have rad as heck styling or no styling at all, as long as you’re rad as heck in love (and not afraid to show it) that’s all that matters.
MY STYLE //
I’m a visual storyteller who loves documenting life as it unfolds, capturing moments along the way that you may or may not remember after the day.
Emotion and connection are my jam. I make images that reflect who you are together.
To be truly honest I don’t love weddings, I do believe strongly in marriage and the connection between people, between the bridal couple or them and their guests.
I’m a bit of an introvert but love people.
Moody light, confetti cannons, epic locations, giant sparklers, llamas, cliff top ceremonies and spraying bubbles everywhere may make for great action packed and emotion-filled 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 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)!
YOUR WHY //
I would love to hear it!
So go and 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?
Does it reflect you as a couple? Is it making that day rad AF or do you just think you have to do it because it’s what everyone else does?
My people value photographs as one of the most important products/ service at the wedding.
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 Grandad 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.
MY WHY //
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.
Being a Destination Wedding Photographer, I love travelling and will travel just about anywhere to capture a good love story!
After getting married recently myself I have had an incredible insight to the good and stressful sides of wedding planning so want to try help couple’s where i can.
I also saw what really mattered on the day and after the day was over, all those things I stressed so much about compared to how i felt on the day
and then what I am left with. I will treasure my photos and photo album forever whereas I didn’t even eat the food or hear the musician i went over budget for, i was so busy enjoying myself.
