Hi, I’m Catherine. Here’s some information about me – just in case you’d like to know? I’m a documentary photographer living in Bristol, married to Dan (a teacher) and we have two small girls. We don’t have any pets yet, but that’s work in progress!

I was given my first DLSR as a birthday gift years ago by my lovely friends and what started as a little dabble turned into a business venture. I took pictures of my children, then my friends’ children. I was asked to photograph a few weddings and finally I listened to those close to me and began fitting in photography assignments along side my career as a project manager. Fast forward 8 years and here I am, a photographer – working with couples getting married and lots of amazing families – the full circle of life really! I also offer one-to-one photography tuition as well as personal brand photography for small businesses. So photography is now a full time career choice and I couldn’t be happier.

Read more below about what’s important to me and my business and if you think these things are important too, please get in touch with me. I’d really like to hear from you!

Why Me

Portrait of Catherine East

If you’re looking for a modern (but not faddish) style then we’re off to a good start. And, if you’d trade a perfectly posed photo for one that has character and tells a story then we really are a good match.

So else is really important to me? Well a few things…. I strive to make my photo shoots comfortable so there are no bored children (or grown ups), no awkward posing and above all no hard sell on additional prints. I value my customers and am committed to quality. Nothing annoys me more than bad customer service. My ultimate goal is to make my clients happy so I pay attention to the details, from first contact to delivering your images. It matters! Feel free to read my reviews to see what others have said about me.

If you think these things are important too, please get in touch with me. I’d really like to hear from you! If you have some time to spare please do scroll through my latest work to make sure my photography style suits you.
