Fairytale Styled Shoot | Katelyn James’ Workshop Experience



I am SOOOO excited to finally get to share these images from our amazing fairytale styled shoot at Katelyn James Workshop! We had to wait to get the green flag from Katelyn before sharing these on our blog and I was elated when I got the notification on my phone today that we were free to share! Yay!

I know I sound like a broken record by saying this again…but Katelyn James and her workshop are just AMAZING. She is so sweet and giving with everything that she knows and I feel so blessed for being able to attend in February. Enjoy some of my favorite shots from our styled shoot and leave Rob and Alicia, our gorgeous models, some love!
