Hello, Instafam! It’s FriYAY and since there are a handful of new followers around here, I thought another round of #fridayintroductions was in order. 👍🏻 HIIIII! I’m Katie: a believer, wife, mom of 3, Video Director & Worship Leader (I’m looking at YOU, @southwestchurch 💗) wedding photographer and educator. I wear many hats and wouldn’t have it any other way. Instead of me sharing 5 random things about myself, let’s turn it around and have YOU share. I can’t wait to learn more about you all. 🙌🏻 Image by @emmarosecompany 😘
Happy Thursday to YOU, my friends. I’m working hard to finish editing our last wedding of the year. What are you up to today? How can I encourage you? What questions can I help answer for you? Let’s chat! 💗 Planning @firstcomesloveevents Florals @fleurieflowerstudio
This shot of the lovely @sclaker84 and her hubby on their wedding day is giving me all the feels. How romantic is Shannon’s bridal look? None other than @jenpluscolour created this magic 😍🙌🏻✨ Florals by @artisaneventfloraldecor Venue @desertwillowgolfresort 💗 I’m always SO impressed with our local Palm Springs wedding vendors. Such incredible talent! If you’re planning a destination wedding in our area, shop local! They won’t disappoint you.
Winter in the desert. It’s finally cooling down here in the Coachella Valley. Chilly nights, brisk mornings and perfect afternoons. However, so much of Southern California is experience turmoil due to wildfires. To all of my friends who are evacuating and afraid, please know that I’m praying for you. Also, please check in! Are you all safe and sound?! (For photographers-Canon 50mm 1.2 shot at 1.6 for this image 💗)
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7. I have a feeling I’m not the only one who needs this today 💗
So proud of my Ava girl. She was awarded student of the month for academic excellence this past week. She works so hard in all things! We also went to the library on Friday afternoon and you know what book she is currently reading? Autism and You, because she wants to love and understand her brother better. GAAAHHHHH. She is a GIFT to us all 😍😭 Image by @emmarosecompany 💗
It’s the last day of November. How did this happen?! These days, weeks and months are just flying by. I’m grateful for this insanely busy but ever beautiful life. I have two more weddings to deliver and one e-course to wrap up before Christmas. Wish me luck!
It's been a quiet social media week for us! Every now and then I take a step back for a few days and it's so refreshing. I hope y'all are finding margin in this crazy but blessed season. I'm grateful you're here! Florals by @camelliafloraldesign 💗
REAL LIFE. We were planning to film an an important part of our eCourse today and this little lady decided that it was the perfect time for a fever. So, the shoot was canceled and you know what? It's OK. Am I bummed that this process seems to be slow as molasses? You bet. Am I bummed that my heart is ready to launch but we just aren't there yet? You bet. However, I get to spend the day cuddling and caring for my #sweetcarolinatru, and that's better than an eCourse any day 💗 Grace upon grace. Image by @emmarosecompany
