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...

  • I'm Speaking!

I received an email from a sweet friend with a huge heart and big dreams. She asked me to be a part of something that she was dreaming and praying about. It was a big project…. like nothing she had attempted before!! It was a dream with a lot of risks, a lot of planning and it required a ton of prayer because it was so much bigger than just one person. This friend was Karen Stott. Karen felt that there was a need in the photography industry for Christian fellowship for women and oh man was she right!! She started Pursuit 31 and it just exploded!! The need was there and God has done absolutely AMAZING things through P31! It blows my mind!

  • Good Things

How long has it been since I’ve done a “Good Things” post?! For-ever!! Wow! It’s been so long that I may need to re-explain what this series is all about. Basically, when I first started blogging, I would share a few things here and there about the things I loved!! It started out with things like lip gloss and magazines and then it grew to Diet Mountain Dews and Filet-o-Fish! Weird, I know. But somehow, people connect to this stuff. I LOVE reading about other photographer’s favorite things!! Well today I wasn’t to share three more “Good Things” that I am loving! Let’s get to it! :

& Why I Use Both

  • Plus Sites & Pass

friend Deborah Zoe emailed me with a GREAT question the other day! It was so great that I thought that it would make a great blog post! I love sharing about my plus sites because I just started to use them a little over a year ago and they are GENIUS! However, I have found that a lot of photographers that are knowledgable about SHOWIT’s websites aren’t always knowledgable about the purpose of plus sites. So I’m going to break down why they are so beneficial for my business! Let me first explain a little about what plus sites are! I started using Showit four years ago!
