Being a Husband/Wife Team

  • What We're Capable Of

When we started sharing that we were considering working together as a husband and wife team, there were many questions. Well, what about health insurance? How many weddings will you take on as a team? What is Michael going to do? What are you going to do as a team that you weren’t already doing on your own?…. And my answer was always the same “I don’t know.” I had no clue. At some point I remember telling someone that I had no idea what we were capable of together as a team because we had never tried this before. Adding Michael into KJP full time has really changed everything.

I know we’re only 8 months into this new journey but so far, it’s been amazing. I’m still uncertain about a lot of what our future holds and what we’ll be able to accomplish in this business together but I do know a few things… without Michael, I wouldn’t be able to:

– Shoot 42 weddings in one year… yikes! Pray for us! 

– Host people at our home all of the time because the house wouldn’t be put together! 

– Shoot 16 weddings in the next 10 weekends

– Sleep at night! 

– Dream bigger

– Teach and host workshops out of our home! Ps. A New Workshop date has been released for November! You can SIGNUP HERE!!! 

– Balance my time in a healthy way.

– Drive all over the east coast in one weekend… he makes all of our travel arrangements! 

– Keep my emails organized

– Feel at peace with the business…

I’m so VERY thankful that I’m not doing this alone anymore. We’re still learning the ropes of being a husband and wife team but I think we can say very confidently that this is where the Lord wants us to be and we’re so thankful. With Michael by my side I feel more confident and more empowered in every aspect of this business. I’m so grateful for him and I know I don’t tell him that enough. :) So happy Labor Day to you all and if you work with your spouse, give them a big hug and a kiss and tell them you appreciate them!! :)


xoxo, Katelyn

    Happened on this purely by chance. It made me smile. What about writing a new one, now that you’ve been working alongside each other for what I assume is a little more than two years? I’m sure it would be quite interesting for us who aren’t in a husband/wife team, or who are considering it, to hear how you see it all after two years +! Unless you’ve done such a post recently and I missed it?
