Katherine Williams

Katherine is an award-winning portrait and wedding photographer who specialises in capturing the spirit and personality of her clients. Whether it’s a dramatic scene or an emotional moment, she creates photographs that draw the eye making creative work that is both striking and thoughtful. She is the co-owner of Christchurch-based studio Tandem Photography, and also works on her passion projects for her personal work. Her current key personal project is Being Human at 100. Alongside this, she’s always on the lookout for projects, collaborations, and commercial work with companies and individuals looking to invest in telling a story with heart.

 

“Katherine’s Images reflect a humility, around capturing the human spirit and are only possible through an understanding and connection made between photographer and the subject founded on empathy, heart and soul” – (Judges comments from her 2019 winning portfolio for NZ Professional Photographer of the Year)

 

Outside of professional photography, Katherine chases after her two gorgeous daughters and is serial hostess, enjoying great friends, food, and yes some Pinot Noir.
