Kathleen James Laughing

Your laugh is contagious!!

I recently had a Coaching Session with Katelyn. If you aren’t familiar with what that is – Its  a one on one time designated  for the two of us in her home to better my business. SHE WAS AN OPEN BOOK and just what I needed ( I had ALOT of questions).  I just finished my first full time wedding season and although it was a SUCCESS, there is always room for improvement. We sat down and she reviewed everything from my interaction with you all (clients, fans & social media), to my shooting and editing. It can be hard to hear the things you may be doing wrong in your business, but Katelyn has such a way- such a gentleness that she makes it easy.

She’s not only a great teacher but a beautiful person inside and out. Her drive, spirit, and love for this industry inspires me. She wants to not only love on her clients and give them the best experience possible, but she does the same with the people she mentors. Katelyn your heart has hugely impacted this industry and you’re spreading love like a wild fire and thats why you have so many followers. Thank you so much, and I am so glad I have a friend in you!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
