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...

Ask Anything

  • Splurging, Organic Marketing and Saying No!

email from a frustrated photographer asking HOW in the world do I convince my clients that my PHOTOGRAPHY is worth the investment. She wanted to know how to educate clients about the VALUE of her work and share with them how important it is to have BEAUTIFUL images of this monumental part of their life. I wish it was as easy as saying “This day only happens once, so hire a GREAT photographer!”…. but that’s not enough. Brides are on budgets and they have so many other vendors to pay besides US!  They want a good deal and they want to get it as CHEAP as possible. I understand this because I was a bride

Tyler + Liz

  • A Country Farm Wedding | Rolling Run Farm

The skies were deceiving. They were perfectly blue and with puffy white clouds every now and then. It would have been very easy to assume that the WHOLE wedding day would look like this. A perfect 85 degrees with a slight breeze isn’t anything to complain about! However, Michael and I had seen the forecast and we were on guard. I’m BEYOND thankful that Tyler and Liz decided to see each other beforehand because we were able to accomplish ALL of their portraits before the blue skies turned dark. The ceremony began and the winds picked up but they made it through the vows, sealed their new marriage with a kiss and Liz shouted “Take cover!” as her groom led her down the aisle!! It’s a ceremony I’ll never forget

The Workshop Experience

  • Fall 2012 | Sign-Up Day!

of the year again! Workshop season!! Wedding season is still in full force and it’s not over until November 16th! We’re hosting the Fall 2012 Workshop Experience on Friday November 16th and also hosting a Q&A Brunch for any attendees that are interesting in investing in additional Q&A time! This is something BRAND NEW this year and we’re excited about it! One of the disadvantages of workshops is that there are about 12-15 attendees and only one of me. I would like to sit and chat with individual attendees that have more personal questions about their specific business needs and so the Q&A Brunch is the time to make that happen.
