Hi I am Cathy.

I am a photographer based in SE London.  I am from Wales but have been in London since 1995 but still have my welsh accent.

I have 2 boys 9 & 13 years old and time fly’s, another reason why I love photos.    I have always loved taking photos my first SLR camera was given to me as a birthday present when I was 11.

I have won a handful of awards with some of my images that im proud of, they are scattered around my website see if you can spot them 😉

I am mostly a mobile photographer so come to you or if its a outdoor shoot you want I use some lovely parks, woods or even a seasonal shoot like the Lavender fields.

I am a member of the guild of photographers  https://photoguild.co.uk/

and Also have done Newborn training with a qualified instructor.


Family or Children’s Photo Shoot

The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even if the people in it do.

Sessions are available Indoors at your home our outdoors on location shoots.

My photography is natural, relaxed & fun.

Lavender fields


We have photos as a return ticket to a time otherwise gone.

Newborn guide

The best time to photograph your baby is anytime in the first two weeks, during this time newborns tend to be more sleepier and don’t tend to wake so easier between poses.

The session is not rushed and will typically take three hrs this is time for posing, getting baby to sleep, feeding and set up changes. so please be prepared for this length of time.

I love life style natural look but also do some poses and use a selection of props Baskets, hats, wraps. but please have any special items that you have that we might be able to also use.


Fun, Fun, Fun

From children’s to a 40th I love a party



Being someone’s first love may be great but to be their last is beyond perfect.

My style is a blend of documentary and friendly approach. I believe in capturing candid moments that reflect the true essence of a couples’s relationship and what their wedding felt like. I love to capture the little details that make each wedding unique.

My approach is about shooting natural and candid, as if your friend is capturing the day. I love to tell your story through images that transport you back to the emotions of your special day.




Do you want beautiful, natural pictures which capture the essence of your special day? Then Cathy Hyde Photography could be your answer.

Cathy is a warm, friendly, enthusiastic and talented photographer, which absolutely loves what she’s doing, combining with efficiency the passion for photography on her very own style with the knowledge and understanding of light and composition. There is no doubt that the result you will get at the end of the day will very much satisfy your thirst for some fantastic, professional photos. I would highly recommend Cathy’s services and I am sure you will feel the same once you will get to know her.


Catchy was professional and accommodating before, during and after with our family photo shoot. She managed our feisty children and particular photography likes and dislikes so well! She has a lovely, friendly manner and the pre photo visit makes you feel at ease and helps you and the children know what to expect on the day. The final photos were great – a lovely memory. I would highly recommend Cathy Hyde Photography.


Cathy is so professional and such a lovely person, she was great at our wedding and the pictures are perfect, her imagination for the shots are great and she was happy to do all the shots we requested. All our guests have commented on what a lovely lady Cathy is. We also did a lovely mini shoot which was great. I will definitely be recommending her and I’m hoping to do more shoots with her in the future.


Cathy is not only a fantastic photographer but she is also a lovely lady too. She takes her work seriously and does a professional job, but is also full of fun and has lots of her own imagination. I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone.


Cathy was brilliant when taking photos of my newborn, friendly, professional and outcome was fantastic, very happy Cathy is fantastic. She took photos of my newborn just as she was born then again when she was one then some more around 15 months old and I love every single one. Would highly recommend.


Had Cathy for my sons birthday party. Fantastic pictures and value for money birthday package. Couldn’t of asked for anything better! Thankyou so much. Highly recommended.


I chose Cathy for photos of my two kids based on positive reviews on this site, and I was not disappointed. She fitted me in to a cancellation slot on a weekend quickly and was totally flexible about the time so we could get the best weather. My 4 year old daughter loved her and she had some great ideas for shots. Despite two not very compliant kids and my worry we wouldn’t get anything good she got some amazing pictures. she sent some to me within 48 hours to reassure me. Calm, professional, great with kids and a great photographer.


Cathy is an amazing photographer. She captured some truly amazing images of my son. I would recommend Cathy yo anyone, I have used so many photographers over the years & Cathy has been the best.


Passion pours from this lady! Cathy was so patient and so professional, working in tight surroundings and with a mischievous 1 year she still captured the most lovely photos for me, right up until she left she was worrying about weather we had the right shots. I will definitely be using Cathy again and would whole heatedly recommend her to anybody. 100% in love with my photos!


Cathy is just fab! She recently took photos at my little girls 1st birthday party and she did exactly what we asked her to do and captured the essence of the event, in a relaxed and non evasive way. We love the photos and she’s a lovely lady too.
