Austin + Kristy

A Rustic Barn Wedding | Sinkland Farms Wedding Photographer

I don’t think

I’ve ever seen so many tears of JOY on one wedding day! Ever! And I’ve shot over 90 weddings! Austin and Kristy’s day was full of overwhelming joy and that shines through their images so clearly. It all started with the First Look. Austin and Kristy weren’t even near each other and the tears started to form. Because of some last minute changes, Emy (my sister, she helped me out since she is good friends with these two!) and I found a new first look location that was WAY to bright but it was a beautiful view. I decided to take a chance with it, only to find out that the spot we scouted out was the same location that Austin proposed.  So as Austin waited at the top of the hill, the wind was blowing and the tears started to form.

Bob + Jessica | Engaged

Shepherdstown, WV Wedding Photographer

We have been

emailing for what seems like  YEARS. After months and months of corresponding with Jess, I felt like I knew the girl! As I waited for Bob and Jessica at a small, quaint cafe in Shepherdstown, WV, I thought about how crazy it is to email with someone for SO long and then FINALLY meet them. Maybe it’s just me but I do this thing where I imagine what a person looks and sounds like based on the way they type in an email! That’s all I have to go by and so I had a preconceived idea of Jess’s personality before I even met her!  As SOON as she walked in the door I could  tell that she was exactly how I pictured her. Beautiful, bubbly and a little ball of energy!!

Ten Things

& a Mini Marketing Lesson

I’ve never

done a post like this before. Ever. Isn’t that strange? I feel like a “Ten things you don’t know about me” post is mandatory in this crazy blogging world. I guess I’ve never blogged one before because EVERYONE posts stuff like this.  And sometimes I wonder… “Who really CARES about it?!”.  Who cares to know that I can’t bend my last three toes on either foot?! In my opinion, no one probably care about the intricate details of my little life. People have better things to do than to read “Ten new things about Katelyn!”.  However, that way of

Coaching

June 2012 | Katie & Heather
JULY-COACHING

It’s really

interesting to me how my coaching sessions this summer have panned out. First of all, let me just say that I LOVE them. I really REALLY enjoy getting to know these new friends and growing my group of photography buddies. It’s so wonderful getting to actually sit and talk one on one with each person and hear their story, their dreams and answer their questions.  The funny thing is that I have noticed that all of my photographers that have signed up have matched up perfectly! I’ve had some newer photographers, some semi-experienced photographers and recently, I worked with Katie and Heather who are both full time parents

Professional Wedding Makeup

It’s really

 

just a matter of preference. Do you LIKE makeup and are you COMFORTABLE doing it on your own? For me, I knew I probably needed some help. Can you imagine me, being the basket case that I was on my wedding day, trying to apply FALSIES?! YIKES! I would have arrived to my ceremony with one eye superglued shut! I was WAY too busy and nervous to apply my own makeup and fake eye lashes! I’m really thankful that I had some help! However, for some girls, they LOVE applying their own makeup and they would rather take matters into their own hands on wedding days!
