These two where so fantastic yesterday, we cried, we laughed, we mostly laughed. Thankful for these authentic emotions and bouts of silliness, what a joy to capture 🍂 | #ilonajade #texasphotographer
Cuteness overload from these two, my goodness 😭
The tear filled roof top ceremony was everything 😭
Remember that back of camera goodness I shared a little bit ago... here’s the real deal 😍 IM DEAD GUYS
10/10 would recommend a confetti cannon at your wedding 🎊
So glad I was able to squeeze these 2 in for a session yesterday morning before McKinley left this morning. They were my kinda people. ❤️
Caught ‘em snuggling in the pines 🌲
Bailey + Will in Palo Duro yesterday💫
Snuggled up after saying yes to forever ✨
“FYI-WE WILL ABSOLUTELY BE THE MOST AWKWARD PEOPLE TO SHOOT 😬” - quote from Lauren. Like this pic if you disagree lol jk but for real they are so cute 😍
We did a thing. Wanna see? Oh good, because I'm about to overshare. Again.
Here we go.
I want to be great. I am going to be great.
I played four sports growing up and have always been naturally competitive. My first day of Jr. High I challenged the boys in my class to a race after PE in my brand new American Eagle skirt. That carried on into college where I spent almost every night of the week playing pick up basketball at Purdue with guys that were bigger, faster, and stronger than me. It made me better. It also lead me to Stefan, which lead me to Olympic weightlifting where I learned one of the most important values in regards to competition. At a seminar, a Russian Olympic medalist said, “when you compete in weightlifting it’s not between you and another athlete, it’s between you and the bar.” I love me a good metaphor so naturally I’ve applied that nugget of wisdom to most of my life. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of photographers right here in Indiana but it’s not my intention to compete with any of them, my biggest challenge lies right here within myself. All I want is to be better than I was yesterday. & that’s what gets me through the 12 hour work days, long drives, and crazy schedule. That’s what keeps me saying yes.
I want to be great.

So I had this amazing idea for a super epic #droneshot
in a lava field and told Dave IT MUST HAPPEN. Then we took a look at it tonight and laughed so hard we cried and then I nearly peed the bed. He says my pose and hat make me look like Where’s Waldo and I say he just looks dead. Why is his neck so crooked? Like, what even were we doing? Not nearly as cool as I’d hoped, but hey, ✌🏼. #basecampvisual #exploreyourstory
Alternate caption: just casually laying in the road in the middle of a lava field. #wheniniceland
Hardcore lovin’ on these details ✨
Sometimes I really love shots that seem anonymous.
Cheers to Netflix for getting me through these long editing days and inspiring a little mystery in my work ✨
When my couples include their pets my heart smiles ♥️♥️♥️

Second for the amazing @rprophoto
Just soaking it all in- marriage, vows, wedding and gorgeous sunset 💕
I’ll just be over here obsessing over this wedding while wrapping up the final touches on it 🖤I had this vision the whole time driving down the mountain- like can y’all get in the road? 🤷♀️ most couples would be like, ummm no. These guys were game for anything!! It made my heart so dang happy 😊
These two are unBOOlievably cute 🎃👻 Get ready for the overload of pumpkin patch minis the next few days! I have one session left for Christmas tree minis in November if you’re interested 🎄

Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true.
Happy Monday, friends. I spent the last four days being inspired my college students from around the world who are making a difference in their communities. ❤️ My heart is full and I’m so encouraged to spread love and hope through photography. Have an amazing week! xxxx
🔰When I was a teenager, I could sit for hours - literal hours - gulping down books like I might never read again. I miss those cozy, imaginative days so much, where I could explore new worlds inside the pages of someone's unique story. That's when I read most of Diana Gabaldon's #Outlander
series - at home in the summer time when school was out. Rarely do I get to read like that anymore as an adult but every now and then, you run across a book that forces you to leave the floors dirty and pile the clean laundry up high.
🔰A Tangled Mercy is just such a book. Inside this tattered cover (I am rough on paperbacks lol) lies a story of history, family, and forgiveness in South Carolina, written in some of the most authentic prose I've ever read. The setting of the story is so strongly written, the atmosphere nearly becomes a character itself. I was so sad to come to the end of this tale. So heartbreakingly beautiful. Its title was send to me by a sweet friend and now, I'm sending it on to you. Read it. You will love it.
🔰Next on my list is When Elephants Fly (actually started it last night because I wasn't ready to be done escaping real life) and See All the Stars. 📚📚
🔰Have you read any of these? I'd love to hear your thoughts! .

One of those awesome & genuine moments with Krista & Brett on their wedding day.
Cuz horses are people too. 🤷🏼♀️✌️
Seriously dying over these two✨ It was one of the most romantic weddings ever!
3 of the most important dances you’ll ever dance in your life....
WOW!!! By far one my favorite cultural dances performed at a Wedding! This Bride slayed!!!! 👏🏼
When the MC announced: yes Jehanna is in fact Samoan, yes her dad performed as a Fireknife dancer, not to mention she has a sleeve that is soooo rad!!!
My gosh this has me balling, family from all over coming to support this newly married couple & of course showering them with that moneyyy 💸
Today’s thoughts: It’s so easy to fall into the Monday slumps. Yes the Monday slumps and I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about because we’re all guilty of it. - Where you sit and complain about the fact that it’s Monday and keep bitterness bottled up until Tuesday. Monday is just another day, but it’s a fresh start to a new week, a time to set new goals and get things done. Never miss a Monday, take advantage of a Monday | @katelynwilliamsphoto
I think she may be a daddy's girl 🧡
