A Palm Springs Getaway

  • And Why We Spoke at An Asphalt Conference

We spoke at my dad’s church about a year ago. We shared about our business but more importantly we shared our story about Michael leaving his job at our church in order to join me. That was such a hard season of our life because there was so much unknown. We didn’t know what God was trying to do. We didn’t know WHY we felt like Michael needed to join me and not be a youth pastor anymore…all we knew was that God was moving in our hearts and in our life and we were just trusting that He was going to do something with us!

KJ Bridal Guide 2.0 now available in The Collection!! | Katelyn James Photography

The KJ Bridal Guide 2.0 is HERE!

  • And it's on SALE for a Limited Time!

Two years ago I finished a project that had taken me TWO YEARS to complete!! My goal was to create a Bridal Magazine for my brides to enjoy and to send this to them as their “Welcome Gift” right after they booked with us! Well, what I didn’t realize was that this Bridal Guide was going to become the single greatest piece of my entire Wedding Experience AND give me some of my life back!! All I was hoping for was a great gift for my couples and this 76-page magazine started to transform our wedding days in the most AMAZING ways possible!!!

Bokeh Behind the Scenes

  • The Workshop From a Bichpoo's Perspective

Bokeh boy has the power to derail absolutely ANY point that I’m trying to make while teaching at the workshop! Multiple times during our workshops, Bokeh will have what we call a “Bichon” moment where he SPRINTS into the living room with a toy flying through the air. He’s basically making a scene to make sure EVERYONE still knows how cute he is! It doesn’t matter how great I’m teaching, I can’t help but stop and laugh at how ridiculous he’s being!!!
