Laconic is the latest rendition of my brand. Its gone through a few changes over the years, but Laconic is the one that feels like me the most. My brand is all about stories through images. Capturing the joy of your big moments, to remember for years to come.

i'm catherine


get to know me

coffee drinker

I love coffee. I drink way more than I should, but will never give it up. Flat whites just make me so happy.

lover of love

After trying just about every type of photography out there, I've narrowed my focus down to couples in love. I love capturing love, there's nothing better!

book lover

I read a lot, and love collecting books. I've just started building my home library and its the coziest room ever.

award winner

This is something I'm proud of. I've won a few awards for my everyday work. These are photos I've given to couples, and I couldn't be prouder of that!

I have always loved stories.
I've been reading for as long as I can remember, and happily fall into different worlds regularly. I love watching movies, and finding out who gets the girl, or how the story ends.

And I love telling stories through photos.
Capturing the moments as they unfold, giving you some guidance to feel like yourself on the other side of the camera. Seeing how photos fall together to tell stories of moments, or days. And years later I love knowing I've given the gift of memories of such special moments.

If you've read this far then Id guess you love stories too, and maybe that's why your here.


lets talk about you for a sec...

If I had to guess I'd say your either engaged or planning to be very soon (congratulations!).
You've looking to start the wedding planning process, but don't really know where to start. You understand that photography is important, and you want to capture your day - but how do you narrow down all the photographers out there? How do you pick?

Well with me it starts with my enquiry form.
From there we grab a coffee (or tea, or milkshake, or soda) and chat. See if we get along, a lot like a first date. And if things go well then well get you booked in!

K & M

Catherine did an incredible job! She captured our engagement and wedding moments perfectly, and we are beyond satisfied with the results. She was very supportive and provided valuable guidance whenever we needed it. I absolutely recommend her!

kind words


B & B

My partner and I had couples photos this week with our puppy. The sneak peak is amazing and I can’t wait to see the rest. Catherine was lovely and so easy to work with and made us feel really comfortable.

C & B

Catherine was so fun to work with for our wedding. Easy contact, very informative, and professional, and just loved her approach on the day. We are forever grateful we have these beautiful pictures to look back on.
