Tell me a little bit about your business!
Hi, I’m Katie of Kathryn Hyslop Photography! I am primarily a wedding photographer and I love my job. Every weekend I experience a love story, and each one is different and unique. My role is to tell that story, to capture the memories so my couples can look back and cherish them.
What makes your work unique?
I focus on the experience and communicating openly. Because I meet with my couples in-person multiple times before the big day, by the time we get to the wedding, we know each other pretty well. It allows me to capture authentic moments and emotions (no fake smiles here!).
I also use a unique mix of natural light and dramatic lighting. Many photographers do one or the other really well; I like to think I do both! At each wedding, I plan to sneak away for shots after the sun has gone down; they are always everyone’s favorite!
What is your ideal client like?
Fun, relaxed, and ready to enjoy the experience! Liking coffee, Harry Potter, and kittens would help too. I’m a big nerd at heart, and I love people who understand where I’m coming from.
P.S. If you know who Joss Whedon is, please let me shoot your wedding.
What is your approach to photography?
I mostly want my images to remind my couples of the happiest day of their lives. My work is candid, bold, and unique. I try to use the architecture of the venue, natural light, and creative lighting to make unique images. I love capturing real emotion and the unplanned moments that make a wedding memorable.
I like to think I have at least one image per wedding that gets a “Wow!” moment – the one where you have to just stop and take it in. Not every picture can be like that, but I’m always after that one showstopper moment from the day.
