Katie Gifford | 27

Occupation: Owner of Katelyn Virginia Photography.

Favorite equipment: A 35mm lens.

Philosophy of life: “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”

Advice I’d give my younger self: Never stop learning.

Pet peeve: When someone puts a filter on images she’s spent a long time editing.

Favorite part of my job: I love that I get to travel and see so many different sceneries and venues, the amazing people I get to meet, and probably the coolest thing is being included in really special moments in people’s lives I wouldn’t otherwise be a part of. 

Best compliment: Getting told I made someone feel comfortable is the best.

If I had $5 million: Travel, build my dream home with my dream barn for my ponies, and donate to a lot to charities.

Most embarrassing moment: When I was in high school track, I was put in the 400-meter dash against girls who went to state and it didn’t even look like I was running the race compared to them!
