"I can take a lower budget wedding and make it look high end just on the detail shots alone. This has elevated my brand to a more high end place which has allowed me to raise my prices. I now have a reputation for my detail shots which has attracted brides who want and love these images just as much as I do!"
"Before KJ's education I really didn't do detail shots. Or when I did, there was no style or thought of light. I now think about light, using foregrounds, etc."
"I never knew how to find good light, how to get the look I wanted and how to make it look like I knew what I was doing. I didn't know what angles to shoot from or how to make it seem like I was intentionally doing something. I've now learned how to better focus and make it look intentional."
"Shooting bridal details used to always give me so much anxiety! Simplicity is key when photographing bridal details I’ve learned, and don’t be afraid to use elements from the brides bouquet. She won’t miss that piece of greenery, nor will she realize it’s even missing! "
"Before KJ education, shooting details felt so uninspiring and dull. It felt like a chore, like something I was just obligated to do – I felt like I was doomed to shoot cheap or low-quality details, or worse, no details at all!"
BRIDAL DETAILS ARE RUSHED, STRESSFUL & LACK STYLING
INVITATION SUITES WITH MORE THAN 2 ELEMENTS FREAK YOU OUT
NON-PHOTOGENIC ITEMS FEEL LIKE A LOST CAUSE
YOU BELIEVE ONLY HIGH-END WEDDINGS CAN HAVE BEAUTIFUL DETAIL SHOTS
YOUR CONFIDENCE CRASHES AS SOON AS YOU CAN'T CREATE WHAT YOU ENVISION
YOUR DETAIL SHOTS NEVER FLOW WITH THE REST OF YOUR IMAGES
YOU HAVE NO CLUE HOW TO MAKE SOMETHING FROM NOTHING
Before and Afters
Has this ever happened to you? - You're about halfway done with photographing the bridal details... it took a while to figure out where to shoot, what background to use, how to arrange everything, etc... and then you realize... the bride was supposed to get in her dress 5 minutes ago!! So you scramble to finish and you feel utterly defeated. Not only did you not get the shots you wanted, but now, you're behind schedule and it's your fault. How do you avoid this? You learn patterns, systems and skills that empower you to roll through your detail shooting efficiently and effectively! Imagine receiving a pile of bridal details and knowing EXACTLY what to do first, then second, third, etc. Imagine having skills to be able to notice why an invitation suite doesn't look ideal and then fix it quickly!
Instead of surrendering to non-photogenic details and just counting it as a loss, what if you had the skills to take that challenging object and capture it in a way that was actually beautiful and dare I say, even editorial?! It's possible. I have spent 12 years mastering the art of making something from nothing and it's one of the most empowering skills that I have as a photographer! Let me teach you how to transform troublesome elements instead of receiving them from the bride and thinking to yourself "well, maybe next time I'll have pretty details to capture". That's selling yourself and your client short. You can take something that isn't high-end by the world's standards and make it stunning!
Finally! You're going to be able to master a system that not only allows you to capture bridal details efficiently, but will also allow you to create a consistency in your work that makes others perceive you as reliable, credible and professional. Consistency in your bridal detail images comes from understanding lighting, background and setting/gear choices. Variety comes from having a system that allows you to get the must-have shots done in a timely manner but also gives you freedom to capture additional creative shots to use for blog pairings, album design, etc. Without a system, you will either struggle to maintain a look that is noticeably yours or you will fall victim to doing the same exact shots at every single wedding... leaving you appearing to lack artistry and creativity.
When you show up to the bridal suite at the very beginning of the wedding day, you begin capturing bridal details. The decision of where to shoot them, what light is best, and what background is ideal are the very decisions that make or break your confidence for the rest of the day. After 12 years of shooting, I have come to realize that if I get thrown off with these shots, I can easily become thrown off for the remainder of the day. What if you were able to make wise technical decisions that not only ensured confidence within yourself for the rest of the wedding day but also produced high-quality images that elevated your brand and allowed you to be perceived as more high-end. This affects more than confidence, this begins to affect your ability to raise prices.
Did you know that the secret to having images that look high-end has less to do with what you're shooting but how you're shooting it? It's true! You don't have to wait for a $500 bouquet and a 2 carat diamond engagement ring to start having bright, crisp images that are visually pleasing to the eye and make viewers stop and stare! The secret to detail images that elevate your brand lies without your technical knowledge, not the caliber of objects! Let me teach you how to create bright, sharp, aesthetically pleasing images for any bride!
I didn’t think it was “a big deal” if I didn’t photograph bridal details (I know, cringe!) I am a self-proclaimed “KJ Junkie” and from all of the courses, Katelyn has taught me: 1) shooting details is a great way to “warm up” on a wedding day and get my creativity flowing. 2) There is a method to the madness when setting up a flat lay shot (dots, lines, etc.) and having a process while setting it up makes it a lot less scary and more manageable! 3) Detail shots add amazing visual interest when creating blog posts/social media content! Thank you KJ!"
Since implementing what I've learned, I feel like my wedding day details are finally at the caliber that I hoped they'd be at in my early days as a photographer. I'm so grateful that Katelyn shared her expertise to make one of the most overwhelming parts of a wedding day simple and much much smoother."
..that looked so elegant and high end. Images were heavy or busy, not well lit or just didn’t compositionally make sense. After following through with slow growth through all of Katelyn’s courses, I started to see huge leaps in every part of my business."
but I could not grasp it and I didn’t realize my potential. I struggled to find the right spot. Everything was too dark. I wasn’t using the right light that was so accessible to me. She showed me how to use and make the most of every situation and venue. She excites me and motivates me to keep improving."
I feel like I really know what I'm doing and have knowledge on how to style my flat lays in a way that will look appealing to the eye and also look high end. Not only do I get excited about my own flat lays, but my brides LOVE them and feel so happy to see their most sentimental items styled in a classic and timeless way. KJ education added so much value to not just my own life, but to my couples as well.
