Hey y'all! My name is Alyson and I just married my high school sweetheart, Jonathan, this past May. For me, finding the perfect wedding photographer was one of the most important aspects of wedding planning. I knew that I wanted to find someone that could capture this special occasion and give Jonathan and I photographs we would treasure forever.
When looking for a wedding photographer, I wanted a photographer whose work showed knowledge of how to use natural light and who was creative in selection of poses. After a friend showed me Katelyn Anne Photography on Instagram, I knew she was the one for me. All of her photos seemed to beautifully capture the many special moments that occur on one's wedding day.
Katelyn makes use of natural sunlight, resulting in beautiful, bright images. All of the photos on Katelyn’s website showed brides and grooms whose love was so evident. The poses were natural and nothing seemed forced. Katelyn’s work displayed a wide variety of locations and poses and there was nothing that I did not like!
After my first consultation with Katelyn I knew I had made the right choice to book with her. She is just the sweetest girl ever, and I could tell that after just one consultation! She explained everything to me in a way that put me at ease. I knew from just that thirty minute phone conversation that she was organized and on top of things, and her organization combined with her great photography skills was just what I wanted. Katelyn was great to email back quickly if I had a question. She kept me informed every step of the way as we booked different sessions and talked about the big day. She worked so hard to create a very detailed timeline for our wedding day to ensure that things went smoothly and that we got all the shots to capture the day from start to finish. With everything else a bride has to worry about it was great to know that I had a photographer who was going to be organized and take great photos. Not once did I worry about anything related to our wedding photos. Not once.
We did an engagement session in September and it was so much fun! I left feeling like not only did I have an amazing photographer who took amazing photos, but I left having made a new friend. Soon after our session Katelyn sent our gallery of all of our photos. They were all AMAZING! No surprise there, though. We knew they would be. In March I did my bridal session and had such a fun time then, too, with sweet Katelyn. Once again, amazing photos were taken that we were SO pleased with. We knew our wedding day photos would be absolutely perfect as well.
Finally, the big day was here. May 20th was a rainy, and I mean RAINY day. With our reception being outside I was extremely stressed about all that could go wrong. However, not once did I worry about our photos. I knew that no matter the lighting, no matter if it was pouring down rain, Katelyn was going to get gorgeous photos. On our wedding day Katelyn was so prepared and so organized. She had sent over the timeline and I had shared it with my bridal party so everyone knew what was going on. Katelyn made sure to stick to the timeline and this helped make sure we got all the shots we wanted. Katelyn was so great to work with the whole day, and she really took care of me and Jonathan. Thankfully, the rain stopped around 4pm and our wedding was at 6. While the rain had subsided, it was still a cloudy evening. But looking at our photos, you would have no idea it was such a rainy day. They are still bright and beautiful, just like I wanted.
ALL of our photos are perfect in every way. I feel that they so beautifully capture mine and Jonathan’s personalities. Katelyn was able to capture the excitement of the day and the love we share. To say we are pleased with our wedding photos and pleased with our photographer would be an understatement. We are so extremely thankful for beautiful photos that we will look back on for years to come and remember our beautiful rainy Mississippi wedding day.
In fact, we were so pleased with Katelyn and her work that my sister, who is getting married in September, is using Katelyn Anne Photography as her wedding photographer as well! My family just loves Katelyn and we are all so thankful for her and thankful that our paths crossed during this special time in our lives.
