Kat Rizza | Toronto Wedding Photographer




My name is Katherine but please call me Kat - all my friends do. I come from an Italian father, a German mother and I grew up in Toronto where I live and work as a wedding photographer. I spend most days behind a camera or computer, documenting around 30 weddings every year. I stay collected through each full wedding-season by taking lots of breaks away from home. I'm very focused on my work but I know when to turn my phone off. Recharging is essential. 

I'm a versatile, personable photographer and enjoy the challenge of shooting on-location, in different cities and venues every week. In my wedding photos you'll find lots of black & white processing, candid moments and fashion-inspired portraits. I like to have fun while I shoot and I push both myself and my couples to think outside the box and try something new and unexpected. Of course we'll get the classics but I like to keep things fresh. If this sounds good to you, we'll be a great fit.

It makes me very happy to know my clients on a personal level. Some of my greatest friendships have started as an email through this site. I've worked with couples from all over the world and have photographed many different cultural traditions and styles. Everything from intimate cottage ceremonies to huge guest-lists in grand ballrooms. From tiny restaurant elopements to lavish backyard affairs; knife dances, mehndi parties, rope ceremonies, the hora, exchanging vows at the base of a mountain... I adore the possibilities. 

Life is short and we only get so many parties. If you would like to make some art with me, please don't be shy and let me know

Small facts: 

I love design, architecture and antique furniture. I make soap, toothpaste & organic perfume. I can play piano if you give me notes. I have a degree in philosophy. I bike often and enjoy wine; sometimes at the same time. My husband's name is Ryan and he's a dear. He makes beer, loves to camp and will charm your socks off with his smile. We recently got a rescue puppy from Seoul and have quickly grown to adore him and our little pack-life :)


My work has been featured in various international wedding publications: Junebug Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Rock and Roll Bride etc. as well as Canadian media outlets: The Toronto Star, Vancouver Sun, Hello! Canada, blogTO, Torontoist etc.

* I also photograph special events and editorial projects in Toronto. If you are looking for something unrelated to wedding photography or you prefer not to use the contact form, please email me directly: kat@katrizza.com
