My Name is Sarah Kate, that's Sarah to you


When you book me, you gain a friend! Albeit a socially awkward, slightly inappropriate friend, but hey, we can't all be perfect!

I really love getting to know people, to know what makes them tick, their quirky little habits and cute idiosyncrasies. And I really love, (my kids hate me for this) being really really weird!

So be prepared to meet an introverted photographer with a passion for people, and if you're thinking 'that makes no sense?'

It will when you meet me.

I'm a history & Wildlife Lover

Happiest near wild sea's & heather covered mountains

I'm a lover of adventure, wild, rugged and unkempt adventure.

I love hiking, although I'm terrified of heights.

I love beer, but get drunk after one pint.

And I love the Irish language, even though I can't speak it.

I collect books to rest my coffee cups on & wait until the movie is out to read them.

But what I really love, is having fun & laughing. Life is too short to give a shit. So expect of shits and giggles at your photo session!

who I do, what I do!

Why I take photos and all that jazz......

As a single parent, photography has been my solace.

I love capturing the nervous brides and grooms, the toddler tantrums, the absolute chaos, & love.

Soooooo much emotion, frozen in time.

Photography fills my cup. My big emotional cup.

Right up to the brim.

"Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."

William Butler Yeats

My three crazy kids

"Our wedding photos are beyond magical. Every tearful, hilarious, intimate, and joyous moment was captured. From getting ready in the morning, to the tiny details of the preparations, our first look & ceremony, and the speeches & mingling at the drinks reception. It's like having a re-run of the day laid out in front of you in the most gorgeously presented way. These photos are out of this world stunning, and keep sakes that we are beyond grateful to have. Thank you for everything Sarah, you are truly talent"
