"It is well with my soul."

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul

It is well, with my soul.

He said, "Arise!"

He said, "Arise!"
and death gave way to life!
He said, "Awake"
and blind eyes woke to sight!
He said, "Come out"
and the tomb was filled with light.
He said, "Forgiven"
and gave eternal life.

A Little Bit Of My Story // #kphotographyva

-- Hey there! I'm Katie Wilson -- 
A Lifestyle + Wedding photographer, for the in-love and adventurous! 

      -- Photo Credit: Abby Nottingham

I am a professional photographer here in Suffolk, Va. 
I am also a full-time farmer who milks her cows twice a day.

I love classical music + John Williams ( and so do all my cows. )

I love biking + rock wall climbing + volleyball-ing :)

I love drinking hot + iced lattes and espresso

Instagram is my insta-jam  ::  @kphotographyva  +  @katielynnewilson

I love food -- food makes me happy. REALLY happy.
I have the privilege of working along side my family day in to day out, and having a fabulous time while we are all at it! love my #WilsonSibSquad to death. ( )
I am redeemed by my loving Savior, Jesus Christ and loved so dearly by my Father in Heaven!
I am based in Suffolk Virginia, but am willing and SO ready, to travel the world for you!
I love people + photography, and telling stories through them -- So I started a business...
When I embarked on this journey 5 and 1/2 years ago, I could have never imagined all the heartfelt stories I have been blessed and honored enough to capture, and the rad new friends that I have met along the way. And now, I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store!

I have been blessed this past year with opportunities to celebrate with some pretty incredible 

couples, families and singles, And I am looking forward to the many opportunities that the rest of this year holds!

How I Got Started --

2011: My aunt brought over her Canon 5D mkii, and I was smitten! I began saving at once -- and in 2012, shot my FIRST wedding! I was thrilled. In 2014 I bought my Canon 7D and have shot many events near and far! 

I took a small class on portraiture and lighting and learned a lot about my camera and what it could do! I followed a bunch of photographers on blogs and other sites to get ideas on posing, lighting, balancing and so on. Since then, I have developed my own style of editing and shooting that is essentially me.

-- These are some recent photos --

My story as a wedding + lifestyle photographer continues -- I am still seeking new ways to improve my business, meeting new good people that become good friends, traveling to new places that become second homes, and trying out new cameras is also a favorite! There is actually a new company called "Light" that has come out with a fascinating compact camera that uses 16 lenses and sensors to capture some pretty unique photos.. I would love to get my hands on one of them someday!

Keep in touch --
