After searching tirelessly for a wedding photographer we finally found what we were looking for in Katia via Instagram. We have been following her for over a year before our wedding in August 2017. We fell in love with her pictures and they just looked like paintings. Her work stood out by a mile and we knew instantly that we wanted her as our wedding photographer. We wanted natural pictures during our wedding and found that Katia had the same feeling about wedding pictures so it didn’t take us long to decide what we wanted. Katia has always been excellent at communicating i.e. from sending us a quote to arranging flights, hotels and meeting up with us on the day. We felt that Katia really made the effort to get to know us and ensured that the photos of our wedding reflected our personalities which offered a really nice personal touch. Once Katia confirmed that she was available for all the three events i.e. Mehendi, Wedding and Reception we had a Skype call so we all could know each other better. She was very interested in our story, how we met, what we expected from our wedding and vice-versa. Katia straight away loved the idea of an open air wedding so that was a bonus! We shared the event location and she immediately started giving feedback in terms of flower décor for all the venues. These are invaluable feedback from photographers to get the perfect shot. We got her introduced to our wedding planners so they could co-ordinate. Once Katia arrived in the city for the event she was very easy to work with, as the events went on we got to know and understand each other better. For example, I am not good at posing or acting for pictures and she understood that very quickly so she would just tell me what to do, how to pose etc... During the event Katia always knew what to do and where to get the best shot of us and our guests. She is quiet and soft spoken and is genuinely down to earth person. Everyone loved her personality. She shot all the best expression during the events. Looking at the pictures now we are extremely happy with the results, we have amazing natural pictures of the guests and ourselves. Our pre-shoot was fun and for our wedding day she was almost invisible like a photographic ninja but captured the most precious moments. Her perception of events and ability to see things that others would miss is unique. One thing we have mention is that Katia simply knows what shot she wants based on location, lightings and etc. For example, our pre-wedding shoot was in a temple called Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple which was located in the outskirts of Bangalore. There were times when we continued posing and she would have already taken her shots. She would then click more saying you both are really patient. Such is her charm. Everything was perfect, from the communication, quick turnaround and nearly 1200 plus shots of pure gold that we will treasure forever. Katia if you are reading this. We both hope you enjoyed our wedding as much as we enjoyed having you as our guest in Bangalore. Hope to meet you someday. Our special thank you to Ruby Singh, who was very patient whilst taking group pictures and an absolute gentleman. If you are looking for a wedding photographer then look no further than Katia and her team. Lots of Love and Best Wishes Oriane & Akash
