Ask Anything : The Easiest Natural Reflector for Bridal Details According to Katelyn James Photography

The Easiest Natural Reflector

  • Ask Anything

Do you ever see detail images from some photographers and think “Gosh, it’s just SO BRIGHT and beautiful!”?! So often I would get frustrated with my detail shots because I would shoot next to a window and while the light was good, it was always darker on one side and it bothered me. So, I started looking for natural reflectors at every wedding! Sometimes I use a white pillow, sometimes a used my timeline paper and sometimes… I use the envelope!

  • And What to Expect Next!

True friends are friends that see potential in you and then take a risk to tell you what you should be doing. Tyler Herrinton… without REALLY even knowing me at the time… took that exact risk. Over two years ago Ty told me that I should be doing more with video and I knew it was true but the problem was, I didn’t have anyone who could DO the video work. Well, what a coincidence! Tyler was a videographer!!! He was 100% spot on with his opinion and we are beyond thankful for him.
