A Katelyn James Photography Workshop

  • The Sugar Shoot

something else has taken over Wedding Wednesday!  I was going to post something for WW but I just couldn’t wait to announce the “Sugar Shoot Workshop”!!!!! This is an amazing opportunity for photographers that is coming up in MARCH!! I’m so excited I could dance right here in my office! (it doesn’t help that I’ve been nibbling on the candy and have a TON of sugar in my system!
