The pictures clearly speak for themselves. The best part of having Katherine as our wedding photographer was that she also did our engagement pictures (which we used for our table numbers) and everything coordinated. Many of the guests didn’t even know she was there until they saw her at the reception! Her camera was super quiet and her presence was pretty much unknown during the entire ceremony. Katherine found beauty in scenery that I would have never even thought was possible. Plus, the fact that I have over 800 pictures of my wedding day speaks volumes.
I could go on and on but just looking at her blog will make you fall in love.

Katy was an absolute pleasure to work with during my time working in administration at The Arts Center of the Capital Region. She has the unique ability to inspire students, provide thorough, thoughtful and current instruction. She was able to show students who had never touched a DSLR Camera to use professional equipment and software, turn their ideas into high quality photography, and ultimately, make art. On the administrative side, Katy was always fabulous with prompt communication, detailed plans and participating in community events. She is enormously gifted.

After taking “the crash course” and introduction to your digital SLR with Katy, I went from being someone who could turn on my fancy camera and use it on fully automatic to shooting solely in “Manual” and making all the hard decisions that my camera used to make for me, AND understanding why. I am extremely confident that if you take any of her courses you will gain knowledge, be inspired, and be blown away by this very talented young woman and artist.

Being Katy’s muse has been one of the most rewarding experiences of the last 7 years of my life. We have done a variety of shoots together however, our love for boudoir will always remain the same! Boudoir truly allows women of all shapes and sizes to find their inner goddess. Katy has taught me about feminism, how to truly appreciate my body as well as my mind and it helps that she is just as obsessed with fantasy fiction and Harry Potter as much as I am 😉

Katy was amazing at capturing the personalities of my fiancé and I. She made sure to take pictures at a couple locations that were sentimental to us as a couple, and used the spaces creatively to get the most beautiful shots. I like that Katy encouraged us to be ourselves, even though we are goofy at times. The result was an awesome set of pictures that looks like us at our happiest.
-Lauren, Engagement and YTK Bride-to-be
Working with Katherine Wright for our engagement shoot was an amazing experience! She led us to be very comfortable in front of the camera and allowed our true identities and love story to shine through. From start to finish Katherine was professional, fun, and caught incredible photographs that will be cherished for years.

Katy is an outstanding photographer, a kind and patient educator as well as a natural and talented artist. My husband and I have taken classes with Katy through private instruction and at the Arts Center of the Capital Region. As we have grown in our own photography, she has shared her knowledge and experience openly and truthfully. Her recipes for success have never been missing the key ingredient, which is not as easy to find as one might think. Katy’s images speak for themselves, they are beautiful, emotional and original.
-Lynne, Photography Courses and Workshops
Katy shot engagement photos of my fiancee and me. I was worried beforehand about feeling awkward or out of place working with a photographer. Those worries were unfounded, as Katy had us both relaxed and laughing in minutes. We spent the afternoon strolling around our favorite places as Katy captured beautiful pictures that showcase our interests and personalities. We’ve received many compliments on how great they came out. I am so happy that we got to work with Katy. And as our wedding day draws near, I’m excited that we will have her as our wedding photographer as well!
-George, Engagement and YTK Groom-to-be
I have had the pleasure of working with Katy for over 5 years now, and she is the most knowledgeable and professional photographer I have ever had the opportunity to work with. I have modeled for her personal projects and photography classes as well as been involved in weddings she has shot. In all settings, she is by far the most talented and fun photographer I have worked with. She brings out the real beauty in everything and everyone she shoots and has the ability to make even the most shy feel comfortable in front of the camera. I would and have referred her to anyone looking for a talented and professional photographer who is easy to work with and who will supply amazing quality images.

Working with Katherine is always a pleasure. From the first pictures she took of just my husband and I, to the pictures she took a few years later of our growing family- we are never disappointed! She knows how to put her subjects at ease and capture the very best moments. My children never hesitate to open right up when she is around. Katherine is always accommodating- even in completing an awesome photo project as a Father’s Day gift. I always recommend her and will continue to do so. We love you Katherine!
-Tara, YTK Family Client
Katy has helped me with all aspects of digital photography. Composition, studio lighting, natural light, working with models, and choosing the proper equipment for the job are just a few of the things she has helped me with. She is always there for me whether through a private class, workshop or setting me straight by email. She has a way of passing her photographic knowledge along with the greatest of ease and enjoyment. When I am having difficulties with anything photographic, I always turn to Katy.
-Rob, Photography Courses and Workshops
Working with Katy has been EXHILARATING! Katy will make you feel comfortable, confident, and sexy with her visions that she has for the shoot. She gives 110% in attention to detail and let’s you be yourself at the same time. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks.
– Misty, YTK Boudoir Client
I have had the unique pleasure to work with Katherine on my boudoir/pinup shoot and it was an incredible honor to do so. Katy has the ability to take away your anxiety and hangups about your body, which allows you to let loose! Let me just say that she captures beauty I didn’t even realize I had! The art work that she creates is not only beautiful, but gives each client inspiration and more importantly confidence. Katy also takes a personal interest in her clients. She asked what I wanted the shoot to portray, then came up with the most amazing poses that flattered my body and brought out my vision. I couldn’t be happier with the fabulous art work Katy has produced for me and the wonderful experiences working with the YTK photography staff. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with Katy and her crew!
– Rebecca, YTK Boudoir Client
“Shooting with Katy is always a pleasure. I was really nervous for my first shoot, and she solved that immediately. Now, I’m always looking forward to my next shoot with her. She just knows how to make you feel comfortable and beautiful! She manages to capture a side of her subjects that they may not know exists. You walk away from it with more than just some fantastic pictures. She provides an experience that fuels the body, mind, and soul!”
– Kelly, YTK Boudoir Client, Portrait Session, Workshop Modeling
We are so pleased with the pictures and overall experience with Katy and YTK Photography. From our first conversation to the actual day of our photoshoot, Katy made us all feel so comfortable and completely at ease. She was flexible and aware of the potential issues we might have photographing our small children (shyness, nap times, snacks, outfit changes). She even brought the most adorable tutus and headbands from a local children’s boutique for us to use. Her amazing pictures are the true testament to her skill as a photographer. We look forward to many more photo shoots with Katy! I would highly recommend YTK Photography!
-Abby, YTK Family Client
Katy was an absolute dream to work with for my boudoir photos. She made me feel completely comfortable and confident throughout the whole morning of shooting. Katy was great about getting every shot and outfit that I wanted, and did not stop shooting until I was completely happy. The photos that she produced were amazing. Even though they’re boudoir pictures, I want to share them with everyone—I’ve never looked so good!
– Lauren, YTK Boudoir Client
Working with Katherine is always a blast, every single time. She has a personality that just clicks with people, and her skills behind the lens matches flawlessly. No matter what the project is, modeling for her has always been a wonderful time. She’s always well prepared, on schedule, and bursting with energy. And she backs all that up with skill, with knowledge of how things run on both the photographer’s side and the model’s. Professional all the way.

You want to hire a professional photographer…so you start googling…and a ton of options show up. It can be overwhelming right?! I mean…who to choose? Will they do a great job? Do they care about their work? Are they REALLY professional?! And of course…how much is it going to cost? Those are the questions I always find myself asking when I am looking for a professional photographer. And I’m sure you can relate. Let me assure you, look no further. Katy Wright and the YTK team are the right “Wright” choice. haha…did I mention I was a cornball too? Seriously though, all jokes aside, Katy and her team are professional and really know their stuff. I mean, what’s better than finding a photographer that is so good she teaches other photographers too? It’s rare…and she’s really that good. My husband and I hired YTK to do our maternity shoot. I was 35 weeks pregnant at the time, and Katy and her awesome assistant took us out to a private and beautiful farm where we took some amazing photos we an cherish forever. I loved them so much my Facebook profile picture is still one of the pictures that Katy took that day…and my daughter is now 4 months old! Katy offers competitive pricing, but the value you get is beyond what other photographers offer in my opinion. And she even got us our photos on time…a challenge we had run into with past photographers. And she pays attention to every last detail…even the presentation of her CD of pictures that she mails out to you. She also knows hair and makeup people that can doll you up for your shoot…and she hooked us up with a really great girl that even came to me the morning of the shoot to do my hair and makeup.
From start to finish Katy and the YTK team rocked rocked rocked…did I mention they ROCK?! I am excited to find another excuse to find them again.

“Our organization had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Katherine. She was very professional and accommodating, and produced stunning photos of our 18th century mansion. Her images hugely contributed to the success of so many of our events, helping to spread the word about a great piece of history in Albany, New York. I would wholeheartedly recommend Katherine to anyone looking for top notch work, and I look forward to working with her long into the future!”
