• Wedding Wednesday

we go! This could either be a major FAIL or something new that gets incorporated every now and then into the blog! We’ll see! Video posting and recording is NOT my strongest area! As you will be able to tell, my train of thought escapes me sometimes! However, despite my mess ups and murmuring, you get to meet Bokeh and hear 3 tips about how to PREPARE THE GROOM for the engagement session!  This is actually a VERY important  thing to consider before your shoot.  The more your fiance’ is prepared, the more relaxed he will feel and the more genuine your images will be!


So hopefully these 3 tips will help out not only MY BRIDES… but other brides out there as well!! Please excuse the following: Bokeh looks like he’s about to bite my hand off at one point… he’s teething.  I talk with my hands… that gets annoying REAL quick and lastly, I ramble… I know I do.. I’ll work on that for next time:).



xoxo, Katelyn

    I LOVE this, Katelyn! My brother-in-law has been bugging me to get into video blogging since day 1, but I’ve been so hesitant because I didn’t know where to begin! So thanks for the inspiration! This is yet another way to show off your amazing personality, and I feel like we just hung out. Keep doing videos – you’re great at it!! :)

    This is AWESOME. I love videos and your dog is still the cutest dog in the world, in my opinion. But I think the whole world knows that by now since I’m always stalking your Instagram photos of him. :)

    Ummm ya’ll are ADORABLE! Great tips and also – I can’t believe you got him to just go lay down after he was nibbling all over your hands early in the video! My pup would have been all over me the rest of the time. LOL!

    sophisticated, business-like, yet so warm and inviting.

  34. Emma reply

    Loved it Katelyn! I’ve been reading your blog for ages but have never commented for some reason. When I read your blog, I never read it picturing a Southern accent even though I know that you should have one… and yours is so cute! Great information and love the video format!!

  35. Lauren Wakefield reply

    SO well said!!! And I love the commentary!

  36. Ryan Shaughnessy reply

    Great video! I can narrow how to prepare your fiance for the e-shoot down to ONE point….

    Tell your future husband you just get to kiss a lot!
