Austin + Kristy

  • A Rustic Barn Wedding | Sinkland Farms Wedding Photographer

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.

Beautiful, bubbly and a little ball of energy!!

  • & a Mini Marketing Lesson

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
