“I had a really interesting start to my career, working as an assistant alongside world-renowned photographers, Bruno Dayan and Michel de la Sabilere, in Toronto.

Michel was once a long-time assistant of Helmut Newton, who is considered the greatest fashion photographer of all time.

These leaders, mentors, and experiences helped to craft my journey into the photography space.”

“It is working with couples uniting in marriage and witnessing the raw emotions between a bride, a groom, and their family and friends on their wedding day where my true passions and imagination fuse.

I combine this energy, with the skills, experience and calm under pressure I have acquired throughout my 20+ years of professional experience, to capture and create the most special and candid moments of their perfect day.”

“I have had the privilege of training under some of the world’s most famous and talented fashion photographers.

I have also had the pleasure of photographing thousands of top models and actors on their roads to success, in addition to working with reputable advertising agencies, in high-pressure settings, on hundreds of commercial and corporate campaigns.“

Kathi has the distinction of being Ryan Gosling’s first photographer (hold back the drool, if you can).

She’s also created contemporary and conceptual commercial advertising imagery for international brands including AMEXKPMGAccenture, and Les Ailes de la Mode.

Kathi’s top pooch, Tilda, likes to ‘help’ with editing and provides some excellent creative feedback!

The Wedding Photojournalists Association (WPJA), a prestigious international association, has consistently ranked Kathi as one of Canada’s Top 5 Wedding Photographers, including a #1 rank in 2016.
