You deserve an amazing experience

I can't wait to show you what it's like to be a KS Bride or #KatieSchubertSenior !

This is the time of year I start to collect and organize all of my own family photos from the year. Actually, that’s not 100% true – I’ve created a system for myself that allows me to stay pretty organized throughout the year so it’s not such a task come December, but this is when I start looking through them and getting ready to start designing our yearbook!

A few years ago, I started using Blurb to design and print our photo books. I’ve done this for vacations, memories of our dog, and our first annual yearbook in 2019. I do this because like so many other people, I find my favorite photos get lost in A) my phone or B) Facebook land if I don’t have them printed somehow. Instead of a drawer full of loose prints, I’m so much happier with a beautiful book of that year’s memories!

2020 will definitely be a year to remember, and we all know why! Not all of the memories will be good, but I still made a point to take out my camera and document my favorite people along the way, and those pictures are so special to me! I can’t wait to see what our 2020 book will look like!

I highly encourage you to try this, too! Not only is it a fun activity, which we all need to help get us through the long winter months! But you will end up with a beautiful book that guests and family members will love flipping through!

Here’s how I do it:

  1. Go to and choose ‘Photo Books’
  2. Download the ‘Bookwright’ software (it’s free!) and use it to create your spreads
  3. Follow the steps to upload your design and print your book
  4. For our annual yearbook, I order a 12×12 hard cover. Last year I had 204 pages! If you don’t have that many images, you can always size down to a 10×10 and have fewer spreads.

That’s it! Enjoy!

P.S. here are a few examples of books I’ve had printed! The Thailand book is a 13×11, and the Wesley book is a small 7×7.

Hey! I'm Katie!

This is where I share not only my work and show off my sweet couples, but also (many) pieces of my life. I'm an open book when it comes to talking about things I love, current obsessions, my cute pup, and my amazing hubby, so I hope you love reading about it! Also, you'll find quite a few resources for planning the wedding you've always dreamed of, so grab yourself a latte and start exploring!

-cheers, Katie
