Katelyn James Workshop – Norman, Oklahoma Photographer

Styled Shoots

I have been giddy to share these all week!

I’ve followed Katelyn’s wedding photography and education for the past two years or so. When her workshop opened up, I knew I wasn’t going to miss it. Katelyn and her husband, Michael, just finished building their home outside of Richmond, Virginia last December and they designed it entirely around hosting these types of events. She is the rockstar of all rockstars when it comes to photography, sharing her experiences, and serving people well. One of the biggest themes of her teaching is that micro changes lead to macro results. Even though I was familiar with that phrase and concept, it was never more obvious or motivating than to see it in action in her home.

I honestly think I could have sat there and listened to her tell stories for the entirety of the two days we were there! It was fun to pick her brain on certain situations and elements in each of our businesses. With 16 of us from across the country, I couldn’t be more thrilled with the take-aways and friendships made. I’ve got quite a to-do list these next couple of weeks, but I am looking forward to making some changes to improve the client experiences that much more! Check out a couple of my favorite shots from our styled shoot below!

And of course a couple favorites from Katelyn’s blog here!
