Meet Regina Wyllie – a Scotland-based 9-year-old wedding photographer who is definitely going places. Ever since she was 3 years old and she tagged along with her father, professional photographer Kevin Wyllie (KSG Photography), to a mountain bike race, she has had a passion for photography. She simply dropped her toy camera and grabbed her dad’s Canon G9, and started shooting the bikes. From then on, Regina started asking questions and little by little learning how to compose the perfect photo.
Now the 9-year-old is fast on track, as she’s being requested personally by brides to accompany her father’s wedding shoots. But not only are wedding clients requesting the youngster, when she was 7 years old, a photo she took at one of Kevin’s “trash the dress” shoots was picked up for a ThinkTank campaign. Not to mention when Kevin was asked to shoot a comedian for a local magazine, Regina tagged along and, of course, her shot was picked over her father’s for the magazine!
The moral of the story? Don’t underestimate 9-year-olds.
