Hi there! i’m katelyn.

Hello, and welcome to the KJ Blog! I'm Katelyn James, and my husband Michael and I are a wedding photography team based in Richmond, Virginia. We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Being Katelyn Alsop

  • A Break from the Norm

I’m in Charleston. If you follow me on Instagram you may know that. :) It’s not a conference…. it’s not business trip…. it’s not a networking event… it’s vacation. No speaking, no responsibilities and no leadership position. It’s awesome!! A few months ago, Michael and I were heading out for a non-work related trip and my good friend Julie told me “Have fun just being KATELYN ALSOP!”. That was just a simple comment but it made such an impact. This week is a “Katelyn Alsop” week.

Sharing your WIFI Password with Guests

  • A Home Made for Hosting

We didn’t come up with this brilliant idea! We’ve seen it in magazine and several of our friends have incorporated this into their guest rooms in some way or another! It’s such a little but yet very appreciated way to welcome friends and family that are visiting you! There is nothing worse than saying goodnight and heading up to your room and then trying EVERY combination of keywords and numbers that you think may possibly crack the wifi code! You don’t want to bug your hosts with something so petty but yet you were really hoping to get some stuff done before bed!

Telling A Bride That You’re Not the Best Fit

  • Ask Anything

So Amanda Hedgepeth and I have been texting this week because GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!!! She just shared her first video blog this week and we had scheduled to bring out video blogs BACK this week!!! She’s just adorable so you have go watch! We laughed about our timing of it all. I’m so thankful to have such sweet friends in this industry that are such cheerleaders and not competitors!!! Amanda is such a dear friend, amazing peer in the industry, past KJ BRIDE!
