Oh I’m just

so excited about this post!! Why you may ask? Well because it’s a post about one of the sweetest gals in the industry!! I’m serious! I met Debbie a WHILE ago at my FIRST WPPI! She made my DAY when she turned around in Jasmine’s FIRST WPPI session and said “Oh, are you Katelyn James?”.  I pickd my jaw off the floor and responded with a “Yes?”…. because I didn’t think ANYONE followed my work! Well Deborah kept following my work and last fall she flew me up to her adorable home in Boston and we did an amazing shoot on the coast!!  I just admire Debbie so much because she’s so driven and I’ve literally watched her business explode the

A Life Day

No blog post today!! Gasp!
life-day

Today I”m

not necessarily “taking the day off”… I’m just trying to get stuff done that normal people get done on a regular basis. You know… laundry, stopping by the bank, taking the car to the shop, vacuuming our nasty carpet, buying a few groceries, attending a cycle class and actually making the bed!! These are all SIMPLE things… but I can’t seem to get them done. So today is a LIFE day. I’m not relaxing and doing nothing… I’m literally just trying to keep up with LIFE. So no blog post, no editing, no massive amount of email responding… just doing LIFE. So have a fabulous Thursday and congrats to Gabrielle Corbin!!

While it

may actually be a little bit LATE for some fall wedding inspiration, I know there are some brides out there that are STILL trying to figure out accent colors and palette details for their fall weddings. So here’s a little Wedding Wednesday color inspiration! I recently received Lowe’s awesome DIY booklet that they send out each season and it was FULL of beautiful colors! So I took some of those colors and designed a few “not so typical” wedding color palettes for today’s post! I LOVE a good color palette for a wedding and so often brides are afraid to  try something

There are some

times when I don’t get to do an engagement session for one of my couples and while I miss that time with them… it’s also kind of fun to show them off on the blog for the first time! You’ve never met Carter and Drew until today and let me tell you… you’re going to love them in about 5 seconds!!! Their wedding day was beyond beautiful.  The ceremony took place on private property outside of Lynchburg, VA and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It’s like this little knoll and pine trees was MADE to be a wedding location!! Drew and Carter said their vows while while the sun set over some of the most beautiful mountains in all of Virginia.  It was amazing. Simply Amazing!!! Carter and Michael are great friends from his time in

Jason + Shannon | Engaged

A Monument Avenue Engagement Shoot

They work

and they work A LOT. These two spent a few minutes sharing how BUSY their work schedules are and I found it amazing that we actually had an evening where the 3 of us were able to meet up! Jason and Shannon’s wedding is right around the corner and so we wanted to get their engagement shoot underway as soon as possible! They met at their apartment complex on Monument Avenue years ago and so we began their session there. It’s so Richmond-y (if thats a word) and I loved it! For those of you that don’t live in RVA, it’s important to know that Richmonders take great pride in their historic city and Monument Ave is one of the prettiest
