today’s edmonton wedding rockstar is yeg newcomer, katlyn prins of katlyn jane photography. we first met her through twitter, and love her positive and helpful attitude! we’re super happy to be able to introduce her to you…
tell us a bit about yourself!
my name is Katlyn, i am an old soul and a lifestyle & wedding photographer. i love tea, lace, DIY, knitting & baseball. i was born and raised in lethbridge, in southern alberta, and I have moved around alberta a bit in the last 5 years, but have come to settle in edmonton. i have been doing photography on my own for 3 years, and before then worked with a photographer (Bliss Photographic) in calgary.
now tell us about your business – what made you choose this creative path?
i have always been drawn to photography and i was given an amazing opportunity to assist Rene with Bliss Photographic in yyc. in the time i was with him i learned so much, and decided to venture off on my own and start Katlyn Jane Photography.
what’s the best part of your job?
capturing love, meeting new people & watching my clients’ families grow.
career highlights so far?
i started off doing a couple family sessions here and there, and a couple months after i started i was asked to photograph a wedding. one bride put her entire wedding day faith in me, and we created something beautiful. the confidence that bride put in me helped me become the photographer that i am today.
