CANDID | AUTHENTIC | CREATIVE
Those three words are what I strive for when capturing a wedding. Planning your wedding is the time to share your excitement with friends and family, and celebrate together. That excitement and happiness is what I want to capture for you (along with some 'wow' shots to put on your wall!). Booking with me means you'll get a custom experience, and one-of-a-kind images that are unlike anyone else's.
Your story is unique - your images should be too.
I'm based in Pittsburgh, so I mostly capture Pittsburgh weddings. However, I travel for destination weddings as well!

Katie is the best photographer we have ever worked with!
Katie truly did an amazing job with making our wedding guests look so unique and beautiful in her photos. We were surprised at how much personality and joy could be captured in a well-timed shot.Sent on 08/21/2019
The photos of the bride and groom were remarkable!! We both feel that Katie was truly able to capture the emotions of every stage of the day - anticipation, celebration, and love. Everyone we show our photos to says "Wow, that should be on the cover of a magazine!" She just did such an incredible job!!! If you are hesitant about pricing, realize that her services are merely priced competitively and DEFINITELY worth it!!

Budget Friendly with Exceptional Service
Katie was an incredible photographer to work with. She was very thorough from start to finish when it came to pricing and planning. And with that she was able to meet our budget needs while still providing us with really beautiful quality photos. I highly recommend, Katie. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 08/21/2019

The Best in the Business
Kathryn Hyslop is an absolutely amazing wedding photographer!Sent on 12/02/2018
She was excellent throughout the entire process, providing excellent support throughout the planning process, but she really shined on the day of the wedding itself. She was calm, so friendly, orderly, and a lot of fun on the day of wedding. She ensured that we got all of the shots that we wanted on a tight timeline, was courteous and professional with all of our guests, and really made the logistics of the day proceed without a hitch.
She provided engagement photos free of charge which were beautiful (!) and was extremely flexible, allowing us to reschedule 3 times in order to get better weather with no issue or complaint. She also traveled 90 minutes from the city to Ohiopyle to get us some amazing nature shots. Kathryn has a wealth of experience in the greater Pittsburgh area and was able to recommend to us a plethora of great ideas for locations for both our engagement session and wedding photos. We almost had trouble deciding she had so many great and unique options - luckily she helped us with the decision process too.
Prior to the Big Day, she had a great planning session with me and the groom to walk through the timeline for the big day and she was efficient and knowledgeable. She gave us some great tips on sequence of events for the day (including locking down the time of sunset and ensuring we scheduled time to get night shots), certain aspects of the event (such as purchasing specialized sparklers for the sparkler send-off, creating a detailed list of family combination shots - including not batting an eyelash when we requested help in arranging the family to ensure we could edit certain members out in the future if need be), and discussing start and end times to maximize photograph coverage of our day, etc.
Kathryn does amazing veil shots, captures special candid moments deftly without you realizing she's even there, and had lots of other creative stagings of the wedding party. She has a very unique vision and was described as "some sort of magician" when our family saw how out of this world all of the final shots were. Moreover, she really worked with us to get to know us and figure out what aspects of the day were important to us.
Finally, Kathryn provides digital release of all photos and has a great on-line web portal with well-organized photos that are a breeze to download and share with friends and family. All of the shots that she got were excellent, well-edited, and she didn't miss a single event of the wedding (even getting lots of little shots of parts of the wedding that we didn't get a chance to enjoy during the rush of the day). As a bonus, Kathryn finished edited our photos and delivered our final product lightning fast (less than one month post wedding during the height of wedding season).
Kathryn is a gifted photographer and is ready for any situation. We were almost sad that it didn't rain on our wedding day due to her creative and stunning shots in the rain (which is always important in Pittsburgh).
All in all, Kathryn Hyslop provided an amazing value and I can unconditionally recommend her to anyone. We hope to work with her again in the future.
