Do you want a wedding photographer who’s sensitive to your needs? How about one that’s great to have around on your big day? Would you also like them to be uber creative? And when you pick up your photos, do you want to be completely blown away?


If the answer's ‘yes’ – contact Katey's Captures. Katey Deal is a wedding and portrait photographer with a wealth of natural talent. Her love affair with her art started as a hobby before turning into passionate professionalism.

Couples whose weddings have been captured by Katey often comment on how much they enjoyed their shoot: how relaxed it was and how much fun they had ... yes, even those camera shy grooms!

As well as getting to know you both during your engagement shoot, Katey also likes to find out about your hobbies and lifestyle so that wherever possible she can incorporate those unique characteristics into your wedding day photography. The result? Fabulous images that reflect your personalities both individually and as a couple.   

Katey will happily travel both nationally and internationally (subject to negotiation) and offers a variety of flexible packages, or can customise a package to suit you perfectly.
