Happy 5th Birthday Kylee Ann Photography!

HUGE HUGE Wedding Giveaway + 5th Birthday Celebration!

Five years ago my fiance gave me a gift that started a whole new chapter in my life. Luke and I had been engaged for about three months. We were celebrating our first *official* Valentine’s day together. Luke’s always been super sweet about Valentine’s day. Our first Valentine’s day ( a few weeks after meeting) he sent me roses all the way to Washington. The next Valentine’s day, he sent a little Valentine’s card from his mission (and every other female he knew, but whatevs ;))

This was our third Valentine’s day. He was walking around for a week with a *I’ve got a secret* grin on his face. Luke’s never been good at hiding surprises. It’s pretty cute to watch when he’s super excited about a gift, but I still don’t think I’ve seen him so proud of a gift since that day. Luke had sold his Xbox (aka baby) and bought me my very first dslr camera! He knew how much I wanted it and made a huge huge sacrifice so I could chase my dreams.

Thus began Kylee Ann Photography. Valentine’s day marks 5 years since I owned my first dslr. I was completely clueless and inexperienced, but I NEVER stopped dreaming. I would have never guessed in a million years I’d be where I am today. It’s all thanks to my family (especially Luke) for believing in me.

(p.s. Don’t feel too bad – It ended up working out for him because even though we were super poor newlyweds, I was able to buy back his xBox after a few weddings just six months later.)1

Recap of the last 5 years  | Some major accomplishments:

Though there have been many many struggles, late nights and tears over the last 5 years, it’s amazing to look back and see what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it. I never dreamed of any of this when I started Kylee Ann Photography, but now I will never stop dreaming.

    • UPGRADES // Lots of upgrades. Lots of trying new lenses. I’ve now owned over 15 different lenses over the past 5 years and over 7 camera bodies. We’re back down to 4 favorite lenses and 2 camera bodies.
    • REBRAND // I “rebranded my business” several times. Lots of logos, a million websites and most importantly – a distinct shooting and editing style. Now when people see a Kylee Ann picture they know it’s mine.
    • PUBLISHED // My work has been in over 50 blogs, inside printed magazines and even on the cover of two incredible publications. Last year we even placed 5 times in a major contest. Our beautiful clients are famous all over the nation.
    • EDUCATION // I’ve attended workshops, major conferences and lots of webinars over the last 5 years. I’ve learned SO many things from so many amazing photographers from all over the world.
    • CONFIDENCE // I gained confidence in my business, in my photography skills and most importantly in my self.
    • COMMUNITY // When I started shooting in Cache Valley, the photographer world was a little rough. Photographers weren’t really friends. And I didn’t really like that. I found a few close photo friends and started with them. Over the years our friend group has grown and grown…and now the Cache Valley photographers are a big happy family. I found some of my closest friends. #communityovercompetion
    • OUR PHOTOG BLOG // I started a blog, a group and a network of photographers. I teach, encourage and host Kylee Ann Sleepovers…locally and in amazing destinations. I love love love to teach and share resources with others growing a business or learning photography. It’s been a huge passion alongside being a photographer/business owner.
    • GROWTH // I hired an assistant and a full-time photographer. Rachel has changed my business and life! We both shoot full-time, and take on double the Kylee Ann weddings each year. I also hired a graphic designer to do all my promotional materials. The growth has been so incredible, and unexpected.


THE 5th Birthday Giveaway!

If you know me, you know I LOVE birthdays. Well the Kylee Ann Photography 5th birthday happens to be a HUGE deal. There have been so many accomplishments and struggles through the past 5 years and they deserve to be celebrated.

We have a couple of BIG ideas to give Kylee Ann Photography the best birthday party ever – spoil our brides and spoil our vendors. Brides and vendors are the reason we’re here today! I owe so much to those sweet girls that trust me with their big day, and the vendors that support me and refer me through the years. I’ve spent the week writing all my thank yous to the vendors that have made a big impact on my career and paired them up with Howies&Co‘s perfect mini birthday cupcakes. We can’t wait to drop them off to all our favorite wedding industry friends. But what we’re really excited about is the #KyleeAnn5thBirthdayBash giveaway!
