The Workshop Experience

Fall 2011

I’m hosting The Workshop Experience. It’s a Katelyn James Photography Workshop, just more streamlined than the Sugar Shoot. The Sugar Shoot was fabulous. And when I say “Fabulous”…. I mean, it was SWEET (literally) and would do it all over again in a HEARTBEAT. The ladies that I met that day just blew me away and they will forever be a part of my business. They taught me that I CAN teach, even though I’m

Wedding Blogs

Blogs, blogs,

BLOGS! They’re everywhere!! It’s crazy how many new ones pop up each month! Since today is WEDDING WEDNESDAY and I’m in the midst of planning a “fake” wedding for tomorrow, I thought I would share my top fav wedding blogs! Ok? Ok! So here they are… GREEN WEDDING SHOES was my first love. I started looking at this blog first, years ago! Then I found STYLE ME PRETTY and I fell in love with the classy style they always portray in their posts. THEN I found GREY LIKES WEDDINGS and I love this blog because I love the styling of it. It’s so clean and chic. Design matters!!! If it’s hard to navigate a certain blog that I’m viewing,
