What can I say...you were not only our photographer but also a fantastic friend for our wedding. Your wonderfully relaxed, calm and easy going nature radiated through us and ensured we had great fun taking our photos. Neither of us love having our photos taken and your ability to put us at ease meant we got some intimate and natural photos which showed us laughing and having fun being ourselves.
We were looking for a ninja photographer who would take beautiful candid photos of us and our guests and you did exactly that. Our guests have been commenting on how they thought you were a guest due to your discrete, cheery and positive manner. You knew where to be to capture beautiful moments throughout the day and your attention to detail was impeccable. The photos are like a story of the day, they show our emotions, our feelings for each other and the joy of all our guests.
I couldn't believe we got the photos so quickly and it was such a wonderful surprise to get to see things we hadn't seen and all the detail we worked so hard on. The special attention you paid to our guests, decor and food was impressive as you clearly realised what was important to us. You really captured the vibe of the day and I can't stop looking at the photos to relive such an amazing day.
I'm so delighted we got to work with you. You made the day so easy but the photos really speak for themselves. Your creativity and talent is inspiring and I couldn't recommend your work any higher! Thank you so so so much!!!
I’ve been working with Kate for years, and cannot recommend her highly enough. She’s the only photographer I choose, because she truly captures the ethereal style of my designs, so effortlessly and efficiently. Her use of natural light and ability to capture feelings and details is magical. We always have such fun creating together, she’s so enthusiastic and bubbly. Her work goes from strength to strength, each image is dreamy perfection. The only problem is choosing my favorite shots, because I want to share them all!

We were told about Kate from someone who had worked with her before. The praise for her work had been really high so our expectations for our own little shoot were equally high. And I must say from the very beginning Kate did not disappoint. It was the first time we had taken professional photos together – engagement photos with our doggy Elmo and Kate made us feel so comfortable from the start.
I honestly don’t think we stopped laughing the whole time and she just made everything seem so normal and relaxed. She took things to another level, even distracting Elmo with popcorn to get the perfect shot.
I was so excited to see the photos and Kate had them ready so much quicker than I could have ever dreamed! I highly recommend Kate Bean Photography to anyone that would like a fun, relaxed and hugely talented photographer to capture their special moments.

Maternity Session , Long Strand
The best way to remember my first pregnancy was to get professional pictures taken of me and my partner. Kate immediately put us at ease and managed to capture emotions and feelings in a very natural way. She gave us directions on how to place our hands or get the right position as a couple. She also picked different locations to get different backgrounds. It felt like that there was no photographer at all and the result was mind blowing. We were over the moon with the pictures we receive.
Thanks to her kindness, her patience, Kate understood exactly what we were looking for. We were so happy with that experience that we repeated the experience when Gabriella was born. In the comfort of our own home, Kate captured the first moments of our new life as parents and the first smiles and looks of our baby girl.
Those memories are priceless and wonderful. I keep having a look at these extraordinary pictures on regular basis and after a year I am still in owe.

In the run up to our wedding the most frequent piece of advice we got from couples was “find a good photographer”. We were set on having photos that really captured the spirit of the day and importantly didn’t require us to smile and pose for hours on end for very traditional shots. We were so lucky to find Kate through her fashion photography work with a friend of ours. She immediately understood what we wanted and after that we sat back and let her creativity take over. Her reassuring and unassuming air means she perfectly blended in to our day and made everyone feel at ease. The result was a truly stunning set of photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We couldn’t recommend Kate highly enough; her balance of professionalism, talent and warmth make the experience of working with her truly unique.

I have worked with Kate over 5 years and in that time I have come to love her beautiful soul. The way that Kate sees and captures moments, memories and magic is breathtaking. Myself and my husband have asked her to photograph our biggest milestones, our engagement, our wedding, our 1 year anniversary and our first baby’s announcement. Her work blew us away and brought tears to our eyes each time. She manages to portray our emotions, our love, our connection in each image in such an extraordinary way. Kate is naturally talented, kind and humble. It has been our absolute pleasure to include her in the biggest moments of our lives. We now await the birth of our first baby and I already have this amazing photographer booked for photographing baby’s first big moments. I would recommend Kate again and again. She is magic!

I can't recommend Kate highly enough! From the first meeting she was a joy to work with and made us feel so at ease. We knew the end product would be beautiful but the photos go way beyond that. They capture the mood and celebration of the day in a way that takes us right back to every moment and let's us relive it again and again and again! Thank you so much for everything, your work is simply breath taking.
