  • It's Launch Day!!!

is a BIG DAY!! It’s one of those days that reminds me that Michael and I are capable of so much more than I was ever able to do on my own.

And last but not least, today is a day when I mark a giant bucket list item off and CELEBRATE! Today we are announcing the opening of THE COLLECTION By: Katelyn James… and online resource for the growing photographer!! We have a SHOP everybody!!!!

  • Justin + Brooke

This day has been 10 years in the making!! I loved seeing Throwback Thursday pictures of these two pop up here and there before their big day! Justin and Brooke have been together for so long and their wedding day was anticipated by so many!! As I emailed back and worth with Brooke before the wedding, I could just tell how excited she was. Details, planning, crafting… she did it all! So much time and energy went into making this past Saturday the most perfect event. And it was just that. From the weather to the details to the puppies… everything was beyond gorgeous. Brooke, with the help of her mom and sister, incorporated so many meaningful details into the day. I don’t think there were many details that didn’t represent something special to the couple and their families. As I walked up to Brooke’s parent’s home at the beginning of the day, I passed Brooke’s dad loading the final touches to the trailer full of vintage furniture.

A Big Announcement!

  • The Bridal Guide

today is an exciting day!!! Over TWO YEARS ago I started a little project I like to call “The Bridal Guide”! The idea was that I wanted to create an bridal magazine for my brides to receive once they book with us! Sure, I could just send them a copy of The Knot or Southern Weddings but I wanted this gift to be personal! The Bridal Guide is not only full of my favorite images, it contains TONS of helpful information about planning a photography-friendly wedding day!! We’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response to the project and I’m SO relieved because this has been something that I have wanted to do for so long!!
