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...

The Blog has had a Makover

  • New Year, New Look

definitely a big season for KJP! So many changes are taking place and the most recent change would HAVE to be the blog’s new facelift!! You like?! It’s different but it’s still ME and I love it! Flosites do my blog design work and for those that have been asking about the backend of my blog, it’s wordpress. Basically, I have WordPress with a fancy exterior and a few special features! My FAVORITE feature about this new blog is that viewers have the ability to scan through previews of weddings by clicking “Weddings” on the top menu bar! So thank you for stopping by and if you have a free minute,

we spent the day with Justin & Mary and their amazing crew in DC for the “What’s Next” tour! …. and when I say we spent the DAY… I mean ALL DAY. 10+ hours! That’s how much we love them.  It was SUCH a fun time. I just adore the photographers from the surrounding areas. They are simply amazing, genuine and sweet!! I had the chance to see some old faces, some new faces and some friends that flew in all the way from CA!! We have one of those great CA friends staying with us for the day as we prepare for the Global SHARE that’s being broadcasted live from our house…

  • Coaching

one thing that photographers, for the most part, really don’t LOVE to do… and that’s get on the other side of the camera!! Every time I have a coaching session and we’re finishing lunch, I announce, “Ok, time for some headshots!” and the girls just give me a look like “Oh no, not that part!”.  No one is excited about the portraits!!! …. And I totally understand why. As photographers, we are SO comfortable BEHIND that camera. The thought of us being in front of a camera ia terrifying!! Oh the irony!! Aren’t we the ones who are suppose to make our clients FEEL amazing during their shoot? And yet we HATE having our own pictures taken?
