This day was one for the record books. It was the first time we had photographed anything at the beautiful Ivy Rose Barn and let me tell you, it’s a dream! It was also the first time that I was able to meet Sharon and Turner in person!! This is SO rare for me!! Normally we’ve already met our KJ Couples beforehand but thanks to the pandemic, we never had a chance to!
So, I walked into this day without knowing much about Sharon and Turner’s personalities. I knew Sharon was a planner, had big ideas and was SO excited to be getting married! I also knew that Turner was a Firefighter, that he was kind and that Sharon thought the world of him. What I found when I arrived at the venue was that Turner and Sharon win the award for having the largest group of best friends. They are so loved and adored by their people and it made their day full and so incredibly joyful. They had a massive bridal party and I smiled as I watched Turner cry and hug every single one of his groomsmen as they passed him on their way down the aisle. Deep friendship is a beautiful thing and I saw that shining between Turner and Sharon and their friends. I also got to experience the friendship between Turner and Sharon. Turner gave Sharon a book of memories and notes he had saved throughout their relationship and she just bawled when she opened it. Tears and emotions started flowing at the beginning of the day and they kept coming! It was a stunning day at the brand new Ivy Rose Barn and I can’t wait for you to see their day through our eyes!!! Enjoy scrolling and getting to know this sweet KJ Couple who now have a piece of our hearts!!!

People always say “Katelyn, how did you grow to this level?!” and the truth is, it all started with a blog. Blogging was TRULY my beginning! A decade ago, I was posting almost EVERYDAY and you can still find these posts today!
If you’re a photographer, it might seem hard to document your own family. Isn’t that ironic?! We spend our days documenting other’s lives but it’s hard to document our own!
When a new model or version comes out, it’s always tempting to upgrade and buy the next best thing! But do you really NEED it?!
A LOT has happened in 2022! Some things that we expected and others that threw us a curveball.. but I want to take a look back to see what worked well for us and what didn’t work so well!
If you’re a wedding photographer, chances are, you are VERY familiar with how much goes into creating a smooth, photo-friendly wedding day.
Have you ever thought, ‘I just can’t do this anymore!!! I’m DONE!’
