mom was at my house the other day and she saw The Knot magazine sitting on my coffee table. I picked it up and said “Oh! Momma look at this!” and I proceeded to show her some of the spreads that were filled with my images. I was excited about it and I’m always thrilled to see my work in print but I wasn’t running around the house SCREAMING like I would have been a few years ago. Momma looked at me and said “Do you remember when you used to say that it was your BIGGEST dream to have your pictures in a magazine?”. I do remember those days. And hearing her say that made me extra thankful for where our

business is today. We’re doing the things I used to only dream about that that blows me away. I’m so thankful for these features and I NEVER take them for granted. It’s been a while since I’ve shared a “featured” post simply because I know that there isn’t anything super “life-enhancing” for my readers when I just post about my own successes. Sure, it’s nice to have record of our publications but I have decided that if I’m going to blog about these features, I’m going to also add a tip for others to get published too!

So today’s tip for getting “featured” is to BLOG… A LOT! This may seem too simple but it’s one of the BIGGEST reasons we get published. We show off our work all of the time through our blog and guess what?! Editors search online for work to showcase. 2 of the following print publications can from editors requesting images that they had seen on our blog. Now did this happen when I was only 2 years into the business? No. But eventually, I started to get noticed. However, I wasn’t getting noticed because I sat in my office everyday and wished for feature everyday… I was BLOGGING everyday… I was building my audience EVERYDAY… one post at a time. We have also noticed that when we started blogging images without MASSIVE watermarks on them, our worked was pinned more and blogs would take images off of our site and credit it us when they featured our work! So overall, BLOGGING has been a key factor in getting noticed by editors!! If you’re struggling with blogging consistently, I HIGHLY recommend making a “Blogging Calendar” and scheduling your posts!

Ok, on to the features! We’re SO honored to have Cliff and Laurie’s wedding displayed in the most current issue of The Knot!

    I spied a foreign bridal magazine even! Way to go Katelyn and Michael! You two are awesome. Congratulations!

    Katelyn, this is so exciting! I’m not a professional photog, but I do have a Canon 5D Mark ii that I use to document my family and as a fun hobby. I actually stumbled on your blog several months ago because of an image I saw of your beautiful home! I love decorating blogs, and really LOVED your décor style! I have been hooked to your blog ever since! the success you have with your business is so great, and I love how you have such a fresh perspective and creative ideas. I have told my husband many times how I think it’s amazing that you offer the in=depth workshops, because so many of the workshops I see are not as thorough and well planned! I’m an occupational therapist, which is about as far from professional photography as I could get, but I LOVE beautiful pictures, and your website is one of my absolute favorites. I love your wedding images, but keep posting about your house and daily life too, because those have really brought LIFE to your blog. Congratulations on the features!

    Steven and Julie for the win! I guess that’s what happens when a graphic designer plans a wedding! So happy for TJ and Aara as well! two of the prettiest weddings I’ve been to (and I’m almost a pro at this point!) Congrats Katelyn! Your work speaks for itself! Sara and Julie have made me a KJ addict, your work is incredible!
