Photography by Karl Drage

Kettering, Northants

My name’s Karl Drage and I’m the resident wedding photographer at the Shout Weddings & Events Emporium in Kettering.

I’ve been a professional wedding photographer since 2016 but have a further 11 years of digital photography experience behind me prior to that.

I love photographing weddings. It’s a real privilege to be allowed ‘behind the scenes’ on what can be one of the most stressful, emotional days of your life. Rest assured, though, that my aim will be to ease those stresses rather than add to them.

I’m quite happy to talk to anyone who wants to talk to me on your wedding day, which usually results in a very relaxed atmosphere, allowing very natural pictures to flow.

My style primarily involves capturing the action as it unfolds rather than trying to force things, but there obviously are stages during the day where I get a bit more proactive. Aside from group shots, I would also hope to take you and your new husband or wife away from the crowd to get some pictures of just the two of you. Depending on the duration of the booking and the time of year, that might extend to playing around with portable lighting once the sun has set. Don’t worry, though, I’m not going to force you into any situations where you’re not comfortable!

I regularly work with couples who tell me they hate being in front of the camera before they book me, but you would be amazed how many of them are directing the action before the wedding day is over!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you like my work and think we might get on, I’d love to talk to you about what you have planned and for you to consider allowing me to be a part of your big day.

We are also one of the wedding businesses who make up Shout Wedding & Events, a shop in Kettering:

TESTIMONIALS

  • So... about a year ago we went to a wedding fair in the hope of finding some wedding stuff suppliers etc.. we wandered round a cold building on a cold day broken lifts + buggies etc left us thoroughly unimpressed for the most part ... then we strolled past a photographer... liked the look of his work... and then we started talking... instantly knew this man was the photographer for us... we met up had a chat and spent hours laughing... yesterday he turned up on time well dressed and very prepared for a slightly sarcastic day and aside the large camera blended right in to our day.. the majority of our guests believed he was a family friend... he socialised... took time and patience with our children.. and my husband's need to make me laugh... he calmed my worries... picked confetti from my hair and stopped people standing on my dress... all while making us feel at ease and taking incredible pictures... This man... made our wedding easy stress free and will help us remember it for the rest of our lives... He arrived as our photographer and left as our friend. Possibly one of the most heartfelt thankyou's I have ever given... Thankyou Karl.
  • Karl did an absolutely amazing job at capturing our wedding day, with a perfect mix of formal and informal photos, managing to capture almost every single guest! I would highly recommend Karl, he is a very talented and professional photographer who did exactly what we asked and is so easy going which made us and our guests feel very comfortable. We were even more impressed at the prompt delivery of our photos already waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon! The photos are great! Thanks so much Karl!
  • Karl did our wedding photos, we have received nothing but compliments about how amazing they have turned out. Also how he interacted with all my guests on the day!.. and I quote 'He was a very happy, bubbly soul. I like him' 100% recommend Karl, keep up the amazing talented work.
