A Winter Wedding Shoot | Richmond, VA

  • Bryan + Shirley

week I had been driving past the remnants of snow on the streets and sidewalks. I just love how beautiful the snow makes the city. It covers the dirt and turns normal side streets into dream photo destinations. I was so excited that Bryan and Shirley’s shoot was this past Friday because the snow stuck around just long enough to be the perfect background for their images! Bryan had emailed me MANY months ago to setup a time for this shoot. He wanted to do this for his new wife and he wanted it to be perfect! …. And it was. :)

MAC, Perrier, Burts Bees & a Stain Stick!

  • Good Things

You’re probably thinking… “Aw, poor Katelyn, she has nothing better to blog about than carbonated water and chapstick?!”. Ha! Well, that’s exactly not true. I’m actually really excited about this post and I have wanted to share some of my good finds for a while! Have you ever found a product and loved it so much that you had to share it with a friend?! My sister and I do that all the time with beauty products! Well here are 4 products that I have come to LOVE recently!! I can’t take any credit finding these items on my own! Now I can’t take credit for finding any of these items!

My Album Design Process with ALIGN

  • Ask Anything

greatest advice I have been given in my business over the last 6 years is to outsource what I absolutely do not HAVE to do to someone else. This is hard for me. I realized early on that I have some control issues when it comes to editing and album design. However, I knew that these were two things that were stealing my life away from me. I had to learn to let go and trust other professionals in the industry to do this part of my job… and you know what… the craziest thing happened…my business GREW when I let go!!
