I’m Katriese, the photographer behind Through the Wild - the person passionate about creating and capturing moments of genuine connection and authentic love. I was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia and have been fortunate to spend time in Melbourne, the Coffs Coast and Brisbane. I know New South Wales and Queensland as much as I know the West, and take up this part of the world as my second home for photographing weddings and incredible moments of love. 


I capture moments that you and your loved ones will want to relive for many years to come

The creases around your eyes when you smiled, the way your hands felt in theirs, the sound of your laugh and your first sip of champagne as a married couple. That’s what I want you to see when you look at my photos. Not perfection - but real, genuine moments of love.


I am here to build trust with you so that you feel your most comfortable self on your wedding day.

I can only do this by developing a true connection with my clients and getting to know you before we even start with photography. It’s unbelievably common to feel nervous and shy about being photographed, and my job is to make you forget the camera is there. I promise you, you will be surprised with how at ease you feel. My clients choose to work with me because of my natural approach - not posed, and not staged. Photographs that express the real you. 


As an experienced wedding photographer, my role is more than just capturing your special day.

I will guide you through the planning process, provide vendor suggestions and options for timeline planning. I have an intimate knowledge of the best locations across Perth and other parts of the country. Whether you’re seeking a hidden gem amongst rolling hills, or a chic city interior, I can guide you to the perfect spot. 


We live in a part of the world with incredible lighting and a beautifully unique climate.

I can help you to incorporate stunning backdrops, and soft, flattering lighting into your photography, creating memories of moments that will last a lifetime. If you’re interested in finding out more about my services, I would love to hear from you. Contact me to start planning your wedding photography.

“Capturing photos is the most important part of a wedding day and you truly did an amazing job of our collection.”

Wow!! What a talented wedding photographer Katriese is. From the initial conversation, you were a breeze to work with, you guided and advised us on certain parts of the wedding to achieve the goal we had. Capturing photos is the most important part of a wedding day and you truly did an amazing job of our collection. We will be forever grateful for the moments you have captured and completely smashing our theme.

"Katriese made us feel like no question was silly and no request was not achievable."

She was down to earth and made us feel very comfortable being photographed. She was generous with her time, giving an all inclusive ‘engagement’ shoot followed by a casual drink together, to promptly responding to our messages. She said she works while seemingly being hidden away, taking snaps as we got on with our day, and we really felt this, she wasn’t over the top or intrusive, she was relaxed and managed to be everywhere without us feeling her presence. It meant she captured candid moments that only a photographer with skill could.

“Katriese you delivered 100%!!”

Katriese from Through the Wild Photography was so easy to work with and very professional when planning our wedding. She held a pre wedding meeting to go through the run sheet on our special night. We ended up taking her advice on timings to maximise the best photoshoot during the sunset which provided the best quality photos for our wedding shots on the river with the city skyline in the background! Katriese was so reliable, she provided some early wedding photos for us to enjoy two days after our wedding which kept us on such a high! Katriese you delivered 100%!! Through the Wild Photography is highly recommended.

“The service she offers is impeccable”

Thank you thank you thank you. Katriese did an amazing job as our wedding photographer. The service she offers is impeccable, from the meetings prior to the day to get to know each other and discuss our vision, to the work she did on the day - absolutely amazing! Her kind and calm nature made it so comfortable and easy to work with. She has a great eye for the perfect shot, and the pictures look absolutely amazing - I cannot wait to see them all. On the same night, she already sent me a photo!! Only days after we were given an 85 photo sneak peek - the photos are all so amazing and you can tell that she is just as excited as we are. And to top it off, she even dropped off the most thoughtful gift to thank us...Katriese, we thank you!

“Your attention to detail and knowledge of your craft has been truly appreciated."

We knew you were a great photographer when we found you on Instagram, but once we met for our engagement shoot, we knew that these moments were being captured by the best of hands. Your attention to detail and knowledge of your craft has been truly appreciated. We fell in love with our engagement photos and cannot wait to see what magic you caught at our wedding. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for capturing these moments for us. We will cherish these photos forever.
