WPPI 2012

  • Flashy Lights & Late Nights

around 5:30, checked into the hotel and made our way upstairs. The doorbell dinged on the 25th floor and we were greeted by screams and “woohooooo’s” from Buddy and Jill! They arrived a few hours before us and we couldn’t WAIT to see them! We’re staying at the Signature at the MGM and our room is amazing…. and did I mention the VIEW?! The view is incredible!!!! Vegas has never looked so beautiful! We’re loving our time here. The people, the food and the community is absolutely amazing!! THANK YOU to everyone who has said hello, given hugs and have  gone out of your way to make new friends!

Michael and I have loved meeting you all!! YAY for new  friends and an amazing trip! I’m excited for our last day today!…. and NOT excited about the 6am flight home tomorrow. Here are some highlights of WPPI 2012!!!!! … Starting with OUR VIEW from the room… WOW!


Friends and roomies!!

    This looks SO amazing!!! I wasn’t a huge fan of Vegas when we went. I love the bright lights and the delicious food, but I was a bit overwhelmed with everything else. It’s much more exciting to know about this aspect of Vegas. Also, you guys are the cutest!

    Awww – you were WAY better about remembering to take photos than I was! These are fabulous! (Also, I’m totally staying in The Signature next time after hearing about it from all the Showiteers – jealous!) :) It was so good to meet you finally Katelyn! I’m sure you’ll be just as happy to get home to Bokeh as I was to see my little Chloe pup last night! Have a safe trip back! :)

    Katelyn! I love your blog and have been following it for quite some time. Do you follow non-photog blogs? You should check out– this blog reminds me of something you’d love. She loves the lord, is witty, and inspiring!

    Anyway, I’m glad you had a great time in Vegas!

You did an AMAZING job singing at Unite. you can actually totally see me in the bright pink sweater in your picture of us all crowded in the Unite room :) I hope I get to meet you someday soon & give you the loveliest hug! <3
