Welcome, Kati of Kati Rosado Photography! We are so excited to introduce you to her beautiful work and we certainly consider her an expert in her field, having photographed over one HUNDRED weddings. That's a lot of weddings, ya'll. Kati is based in Florida and we love her use of film and eye for capturing timeless and romantic photos. Not to mention, Kati's brand makes us all swoony. Read on to hear a little about how she began and gives us some great advice!
When did you start your business/blog?
I have been photographing weddings since 2011! I didn't really get serious about it until 2013.
Where does your passion stem from?
My passion is for not only the artistry of photography and finding the balance between perfection and imperfection, but also in love for its own sake. I love love, and to be able to document this entity that makes the world go round is truly rewarding. Whenever my clients say that they will cherish their wedding photos forever, that is what makes it all worth it.
If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice what would it be?
Be in COMMUNITY. I remember when I first discovered that there were Facebook photography groups just a few years ago. I had no idea that people were willing to lift each other up and offer advice from their own experiences, rather than trying to tear down their competition. As it is said, a smart man learns from his mistakes but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.
What is one way you stay inspired outside of your industry/field?
As cliche as it sounds, traveling is always incredibly inspiring. To meet new people, experience new cultures, and photograph in different settings... it reminds you that the world is so vast and you are only such a small part of it, so stay humble.
