Hello there, I’m Kirsty, I'm a creative Derbyshire wedding photographer.  
My background and experience mean I can blend in to any situation and it’s my job to put people at ease and allow everyone to be themselves. I shoot my weddings in a Documentary style, which allows you to have a genuine record of your day so that when you look back on the images in years to come, you can remember what actually happened and relive all those precious moments. I like a laidback approach with good humour and lots of laughs. 
I absolutely love what I do, but first and foremost, I’m dedicated to customer satisfaction. For me, client satisfaction means just as much as the money.
Telling your unique love story is my speciality. Photographing weddings is not just about having a good eye. 

My approach
With every wedding I’m lucky enough to photograph, I arrive with a fresh pair of eyes.  I challenge myself each and every time I photograph a wedding, and I'm always up for a new challenge to get that perfect picture. 

I’m dedicated, fearless and I promise to give you everything I’ve got and deliver nothing but my absolute best.  We only get one shot at getting these images that you will treasure for the rest of your lives so we need to get it right first time!

I have put together these galleries to show you my style and demonstrate my approach at the key points during the day. Have a look through and don’t forget to have a look at my gallery

 A lot of the Weddings I photograph are in Buxton, Derbyshire,  but I also cover all of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, and Greater Manchester, I am happy to travel to wherever your wedding destination may be. I shoot all kinds weddings whether your ceremony is in a barn, outdoors in a field, at an iconic hotel, country house or castle, or is an intimate elopement with a pint afterwards.
  I understand how important your big day is and you don't want to be spending your time away from your guests, having lengthy photo sessions, and rightly so. Your photographs are that one special thing left over after your wedding day, as well as your love for each other and wedding bands of course.
Please make sure you take the time to choose the right photographer for you, because the wedding photographer is the one supplier who is with you the most, almost all day.
 I pride myself in being professional, It's very important to make my couples feel at ease with me, and we can laugh together, having a good rapport is my aim and the results speak for themselves, click here to get a glimpse of it for yourself.

I offer a range of straight forward packages, I think planning a wedding is stressful enough without adding more options into the equation. We can have as many calls/face time/zoom/ meetings as you like so we can discuss your requirements, or a coffee in the local cafe if you are closeby.

Kirsty recently photographed our whole wedding for us and we are so happy we chose her!

She was amazing from start to finish! A week before we had a meeting to discuss what kind of photos we would like from our day.

On the day Kirsty was fantastic, a lot of the time snapping away without us realising and she captured so many lovely moments from our day.

We are so happy with all the beautiful photographs which we received on a usb stick in a gorgeous little wooden box.

Thank you again Kirsty for been so brilliant at what you do!!

We would highly recommend Captured by Kirsty to anyone looking for a professional and friendly photographer

Kirsty came to take some pictures of me, my best man and groomsman on the morning of my wedding, she was absolutely fantastic, got some amazing shots of us getting ready along with some nice pictures of the rings, suits and pocket watches. She took some really nice natural shots too which is exactly what me and my wife wanted, I would recommend her to anyone wanting a friendly and professional service.

This really helped us feel comfortable and relaxed while having photographs taken. We absolutely love our photographs and I know they’re going to give us lots of amazing memories of our day to look back on. We also have a beautiful Wooden box and USB stick with all our photographs on so we can easily show friends and family. Thank you so much Kirsty, I would definitely recommend Captured By Kirsty to anyone
