Katelyn James Photography | The Workshop Experience



These past two days, I had the amazing privilege of attending Katelyn James’ Workshop Experience. I have been following Katelyn James through her blog and Facebook for almost a year now and it still hasn’t hit me that I was in her LIVING ROOM! Oh my gosh…I can’t believe it. It was like meeting a celebrity! I could not have been more excited and the second I walked into the door, she made me feel so comfortable and I felt like I had known her for a lifetime! She is such an amazing person and I can’t thank her enough for being so giving and sharing all of her knowledge with us during the workshop. I learned SOOOOO much and I cannot wait to start putting what I’ve learned into action!

Not only did I learn A TON, I met 11 other amazing photographers and we all had a fabulous time together! Over 22 hours of learning, shooting, sharing, asking questions and soaking up every bit of knowledge that Katelyn had to offer!


Seriously, how pretty is Katelyn’s living room?! (Photos courtesy of the amazing Michael!)
