Hi there! I’m Katelyn.

When you have to cancel a wedding

  • Ask Anything

So what do you do when life throws you a curve ball and you can’t fulfill your responsibilities as a wedding photographer? Sadly, this is the wedding season where some of my worst photographer fears came true. I’ve NEVER had to back away from a wedding until this year. I’ve always worried about what would happen if I physically could not shoot a wedding. What would my clients say? What would my backup plan be? Who would take my place?

  • Historic Downtown Richmond Engagement Session

This beautiful session from so many gorgeous locations in downtown Richmond is so special to us for many reasons! First, this sweet couple drove over 12 hours for their shoot! Can you believe that?! That is one amazing road trip! There is no denying that they were dedicated to having amazing engagement portraits. Secondly, Nicole is a photographer and attended one of our workshops back in 2014!! It’s fun to have a familiar face in front of my camera but it’s also so amazing to photograph another photographer!!
