My name is Cat and I am a wedding photographer living in the beautiful county of Herefordshire (UK), together with my husband Rich and our lovable rescue dog Woody. You can often find us spending time outdoors, walking, cycling or mountain-biking in the peacefulness of the countryside, then on the way back stopping by a good old English pub for great food and good ale by an open fire.
And now I'd like to tell you a little bit about the other half of Cat Beardsley Photography, my partner in life and photography, Rich.
Rich, like me is a photographer but also a videographer and loves great cinematography. All the images of me on this website are captured by him and he also handles all the editing duties. He is the introvert, I am the extrovert and we make a great team between us! We both search for beauty and harmony in our photographs, for good light and for capturing the sheer joy and genuine emotion of the day.
I believe life is worth documenting through photographs & prints: they last, they trigger memories, they warm our hearts in years to come when on cold winter nights we’ll blow away the dust off the album’s covers and browse through it reminiscing that day, that particular moment in time. One’s wedding is one of those moments: I want you to have an album full of memories to show your children and grand children 50 years from now, including: who was by your side, how you all enjoyed it, where it was held, what people were wearing back in those days, I want the album to reflect a page of history, a page of your history together as a couple.
I blend in for those moments suited to documentary photography, like having a laugh in the morning with your friends or having the time of your life on the dance floor.
BRIDE AND GROOM PORTRAITS
I like to come forward when I take fine art portraits of the bride in the morning and later on when it is couple portrait time - my favourite moment of the day.
CLASSIC & CANDID
FAMILY / DEAR ONES
I take great pleasure in photographing this moment, it is these photos that will become more precious as time goes by: your Grandmother, a good friend, your parents, your dog if he/she is there! These photos are worth making time for.
