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. ( fullquiverfarm.com )
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.

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!
