• Big Hair, Black Ties & Big Hearts

The beautiful thing about traveling to all of the these crazy conferences is that when we get there, we feel like we’re at a family reunion. Over the last 3-4 years we’ve grown strong friendships with such dear friends and peers in the industry. We count down the days until each time we get to see each other and we pick up where we left off immediately. These people get us. They get our insecurities, our fears, our struggles, our dreams. They understand our crazy schedules and don’t judge us for them. They see when we’re overwhelmed and they know how to make it better. They pray with us before we walk on stage and they’re vulnerable about where they are in life.

Friends are a gift. It’s sad that some of ours are placed all over the country but it makes weeks like this so special. Michael and I are so thankful for these friends that make us feel alive, who encourage us and who inspire us to keep fighting the good fight. :) Enjoy some iPhone shots of our FANCY NIGHT!!! And just WAIT until you see J&M at the bottom! What a fun night at the UNITED CONFERENCE!!!! So honored to be a part of this community as a fellow photographer AND a speaker!!!

For those that asked about my hair… yes, I did it myself. And no, it’s not a pretty process. Take a look at that first pic! yikes!!

And THIS is what you have to look forward to! Justin Marantz is AMAZING!!!! Just wait until you see these incredible portraits! (Ps. Matt Kennedy took this one!)

xoxo, Katelyn

    Your hair is awesome! I saw you guys praying before the talk at WPPI and it made my heart so happy. I pray for friends like you in the industry and I am so glad I ended up finding you all so early in my career. ;-)
