HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The Photo Editor's Guide was founded and launched in the fall of 2019 by Katie Rivera. The mission of the Guide is to reduce the gatekeeping of photo editing careers in the wedding and portrait industry. The Guide's purpose is to empower others with the skills and training needed to start a thriving photo editing business with no photography background required to begin!

Nomadic dreamer (Enneagram 1), lover of plant based foods,  hiking, and the colors brought to life on film. 

I’m the creator of the Photo Editor’s Guide. I’m a full-time private photo editor for professional photographers around the world, a published wedding photographer, and a business mentor for other photo editors.

I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelors in Fine Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography. After graduating, I launched and grew my first photography business!

I left my busy photography business to become a private photo editor in search of more freedom and schedule flexibility to live the life I wanted. 

I made $75,000 as a photo editor WHILE my husband and I toured the country for a year visiting + hiking National & State Parks (yep, entirely funded by my editing)!

Here’s the best part about my biz: I keep the majority of my clients year after year. I love that I can help my clients find more freedom to live their lives by taking editing off their plate. I truly have a wholehearted, meaningful business that has changed my life and my clients’ lives too.

It’s my passion to educate, encourage, and help others thrive in their online photo editing business. There is plenty of work out there for good photo editors, they just need the right training and guidance to get there. I’m here — rooting for you, and eager to help!

Having the ability to explore with my dogs is essential to my idea of travel! From the Grand Canyon to mountain hikes in Idaho, my pups have seen it all.

I don't wait for a vacation to travel. When you work remotely, why not work and travel whenever you can? I traveled the U.S. for a full year while supporting myself with photo editing income. Work to live instead of the other way around, amiright?
