From the moment we meet you, we want to give you more. We want to be there for you and be part of building your momentous day. We are here to assist you in building the day of your dreams. From helping you to develop the style of your wedding, to choosing vendors to fine tuning small details and developing schedules - this is all part of our service.
We create memories of moments that you can look back on as you and your family grow. Carefully documented, thoughtfully curated - this is what we stand by at Through the Wild.
Packages are tailored to each wedding and may not include all of the above-items. Please contact us to find out more.
Throughout the wedding day, we work discreetly and unobtrusively to capture candid moments as they happen. We provide gentle direction when needed, but never force poses or moments that don’t feel natural. Our goal is to capture the essence of your relationship, and create images that reflect your personalities and style.

The day you get married does not have to adhere to social conventions. Many people choose to express their love in an intimate and intentional setting. For some, this may be an elopement with just you two (and your photographer by your side!) For others, it may be an intimate wedding with a select few guests. You can wholeheartedly have the day you want to.

Elevate your wedding package with the inclusion of film, adding a timeless and artistic dimension to your precious moment
By entrusting an on-the-day content creator, you can relish your wedding day without the distraction of phones, allowing you and your guests to be fully present in the moment. Let the professionals capture the memories while you savor every second.
Some travel fees outside of the Perth metropolitan area may apply, however please get in touch with us and let us know about your plans - we might be headed in the same direction and would love the opportunity to be a part of capturing your celebrations.
After you have sent an enquiry, we will organise a phone call so that we can get to know what you are looking for. We will seek to understand what you are dreaming of for your wedding day. During this time, we can get a feel for whether we are the right fit for each other - the person who captures your day is one of the most important wedding planning choices you will make. We will have a high-level discussion about your day, talk about your schedule, timelines and what vendors you have selected. It’s an ideal opportunity for everyone to ask lots of questions.
After you have paid your deposit, we will set up a contract and provide a questionnaire for you to complete so that we can ensure we have all of the information we need. We will provide lists of preferred vendors or suggestions from cakes and stationery to live music and florists. At this stage we will start to develop a mood board and timeline for your wedding.
Follow us on Instagram, send us messages and share lots of information- we would love to hear and see it all. We recommend booking a pre-wedding (engagement) shoot so that you can feel extremely comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera before the wedding day. A month before the wedding, we will organise to catch up for a coffee so that we can speak about the finer details
Our most popular and recommended photography package includes 8 hours of coverage. This provides exceptional value and ensures the best possible coverage of your wedding, telling the story of your unique day from start to finish. It includes capturing moments before the ceremony and/or celebration commences - a part of the day many couples choose to be in different locations for, so it means you get to see the moments you haven’t witnessed in person.
Having longer coverage also means an extended album and more flexibility to tailor the coverage to your preferences. We usually start the day by focusing on the “groom”, or person who identifies as the groom, for about one hour. We then travel to the “bride”, or person who identifies as the bride, capturing the final moments with the makeup artist and donning that oh-so-special attire. This usually takes an hour, however if you have a larger group, or want to capture a separate ‘first-look’ before the ceremony, we can adjust this.We also know that not every couple is made up of a bride and groom, and so this can be tailored to suit your needs.
We aim to arrive at the wedding venue approximately 30-minutes before commencement of the ceremony. This means we’re perfectly positioned to discreetly capture every noteworthy moment. After the ceremony and formal photos, it’s time to move on to the reception where we usually conclude our services 30 minutes after the first dance, or as the lively festivities continue.
The contract is between myself (the photographer), and the couple. If someone else would like to pay for your photography as a gift, it is generally best that this person transfers the payment to you so that you can then pay the invoice. This ensures the contract is legally binding. Rest assured - we can discuss this throughout your consultation.
If you book a short coverage package, and services conclude just after the reception entrance or upon the time a meal such as dinner is due, then usually you do not have to provide food. However, if we are covering the meal service and afterwards, it’s generally expected that the photographer also has a meal. If you are having a second photographer, or videographer, this includes them too.
A few words that come to mind are luxurious, unique and effortlessly styled.
The main shot list we use is a list of required formal photos such as family photos. For the rest of the celebration, I don’t have a prescribed checklist. My approach is to capture and provide bespoke photographs that suit your needs, as no wedding, couple, venue or day is the same. To help me (or my team) to understand what you would like, it can work extremely well to create a Pinterest board that you share - it really helps to align your vision with mine for the day.
We can help you to work out a timeline and work with your vendors to make sure everything is planned out smoothly. The most important thing is to allow yourself enough time to have fun and enjoy the day - packing your schedule can be stressful. Enjoying the moments where it’s just the two of you, and letting your photographer capture these moments to create beautiful portraits is well worth it.
All of my prices are inclusive of GST, including the online store.
This can be a little tricky to explain! As weddings are a private moment, you own the photos. Upon signing the photography contract, you give permission for me to use these photos in a number of ways including advertising and social media to promote my services. If you do not wish for photographs of yourself or family members such as children to be shared, I will of course respect this. We can discuss what you are comfortable with throughout our meetings.
It is an industry standard not to provide RAW (unedited images) to clients. I will take many, many photos on the day, and it would be incredibly overwhelming if you were to receive every angle of a photograph. It’s my job as a wedding photographer to choose the images which show the best angle, lighting, open eyes and everything in between! All of the photos you will receive in your gallery will be fully edited and enhanced in Photoshop. This makes a huge difference to photography, and we promise you - it’s the best approach.
All of my packages include prints and you or anyone you share your digital gallery with can order more through the online store.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
