Nadine Lotze

Hi, I’m Nadine – based in Hagen/Germany and I am very happy to say that I’ve worked since 2011 as a wedding photographer.

Do not worry, I do not want to bore you with my first experiences in the darkroom or which camera and which lens I bought when. I care about the people and their stories and I want to capture the big emotional moments as well as the loving little things on the edge of the action, the “outer shell” as well as the character or every day.

Pure and undisguised, timelessly beautiful and aesthetically – that’s the way the pictures should refresh the memory of the moment and put a smile on every face. In the last two years I fell more and more in love with the real moments and so I’m working hard on my skills to leave my bubble of an introvert. So being among all this talented photographers at PKIR seems to be the right place for me.

Kerry Tongue

I’m Kerry and I am a Wedding photographer based in West Sussex (will travel for haribo) and my passions apart from photography are pom poms, mustard yellow, interior design and watching anything on TV that contains Zombies. Oh and of course my family.

I have been shooting Weddings for a few years and my photographic style comes from an interest I had in my twenties of street and documentary photography. I captured most of my imagery on film through analogue and polaroid cameras made famous by the Lomography movement. My bachelors degree in photography was obtained in 2001.

After taking a little time out to go travelling I then moved to London to begin a ten year career in picture research and photographer representation. My first job was working for the photojournalism based agency ‘Network Photographers’ which was definitely the beginning of my passion for photojournalism. Many years have passed since my picture agency days and I now photograph under the name of Teddy Pig Photography. I love to weave my passion of reportage story telling into my wedding photography, which means I love to capture everything and anything which helps keep the photography of the day…… REAL!

Jenny Rutterford

Hello, I’m Jenny, I live on the South coast near Brighton with my husband, two teenagers and two cats! I’ve previously worked in magazine editing and marketing consultancy, and when the kids came along became a part-time trust fundraiser for a homeless persons’ charity.

Photography was always a passion, but I never set out to do it professionally – it happened pretty much by accident while living in the US for a few years. I started capturing my kids and their friends on school sports days with rented DSLR equipment. A couple of parents asked if I could take lifestyle portraits of their families, and my business was born!

Weddings soon followed and I now shoot around 25 a year. Being quite shy, I naturally adopted a fly-on-the-wall approach to capturing weddings. In the past couple of years though I’ve made a conscious effort to get closer with wide angle lenses for a more reportage style. I was worried that it would be harder to remain unobtrusive, but my couples still say they didn’t know I was there! Working with clients who get what I do and allow me to capture their day in my own way is such a privilege. I love my job!
