Hey! This is me, Kate

Born in Germany and raised in West Cork, Ireland,
With cows as neighbors and Fairies as friends, inspired by natural light and the wild souls I get to document through my emotional kaleidoscope.
My greatest creative lessons are from life and people, pain, happiness and most of all, love.
Living in the countryside with Fintan, my love, a big-hearted, blue-eyed musician, and my cat companion, Kitty.
I also have a slight obsession with Crisps + Hummus.
Curator and capturer of visual poetry, I'm here for the inspired and inspirational dreamers, the free spirits, and the untamable souls; the ones with bare feet, messy hair and big hearts.



Where I'm headed next

There is nothing more I love than to travel with my love around the world and to capture the love of others while we travel. It's a beautiful way to see the world, to meet new friends (and eat all the delicious food) . If you happen to be in the same area within these dates, feel free to hit me up and see if I am available.

"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!"


Julie + Daithi

"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. "


Siobhan + Sean

"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."
