Hello and welcome to The Blog! I’m Katelyn James and I’m a Virginia + Destination Wedding Photographer based in Richmond, VA. Sit back, grab some coffee ( or my personal favorite, Diet Mountain Dew!) and enjoy viewing my latest work, meeting my fabulous clients and getting a little peek into my own life! I’m so excited that you stopped by! You can also view recent features right here! >>
like I’ve been blogging a lot of personal life stuff recently. My sister got engaged, Thanksgiving was at our house for the first time EVER, etc, etc. Welp! Today is another personal day! :) I have mentioned so many times before that this blog isn’t JUST a blog for my business, it’s a blog for my life as well! It’s my online scrapbook and now that’s been going for 6 years, it’s REALLY fun to have life documented this way! So I wanted to post some images from our Thanksgiving tablescape because it was pretty and glowy and very TEAL!
being SO intimidated by ANYTHING that had to do with FLASH or off-camera lighting. 3 years ago, I had good reason to be intimidated because I didn’t understand flash or off-camera lighting like I do now. I’m no genius when it comes to artificial light but I do know more now!! I’m creating well exposed images consistently when using flash and I actually understand WHY they are turning out well instead of just shooting and praying that something good will happen. Shooting and just hoping for something decent to be captured isn’t a very professional approach and so if you’re in that place,
CYBER Monday!! We’re off to get some things done at the DMV, don’t you envy us?! But before we sit in line for a ridiculous amount of time, I want to share that registration for TWO NEW WORKSHOP DATES and several COACHING DATES are now live!! We absolutely love the photographers that have come into our lives through coaching over the last year and a half and we’re excited to have even more friends join us in our home! Not only do we host coaching sessions in our home, we also host The Workshop Experience in our home as well!!
to believe that Thanksgiving is over! It JUST hit me that I should probably start being proactive about Christmas gifts!! Ah!! Well, like last year, we’re offering a SALE on our Legacy Wedding Albums!!! A large majority of our couples order albums with their package when they book with us but for those that still have them on their wish list, today is the day!! Legacy albums are 30% off now through Monday! Not only are Legacy albums on sale, we are also discounting SEATTLE HUDDLE seats to $500 through Monday as well!!
around out kitchen table that was fully extended… all 13 of us! We sat and ate way too much home cooked food and it was delicious. The table was a little toasty because I had way to many decorative candles on display but it was beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Thanksgiving. This was our first Thanksgiving in our new home and both of our families came to us this year!! What a treat!! Not only did they come for dinner but my whole family spent the night last night! It was a James family sleepover and I loved it. We did Thanksgiving a day early so that Emily and Joe could drive to PA to see his family for their big celebration today.
