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...

Why I Love It & Why It's for Everyone!

  • The New Pass

I don’t know everything about the New PASS, but I do know that it’s getting SO close to being released to everyone! And I know some features about PASS that are going to knock your socks off!! This year I made a list of the things that went really WELL in 2012. I also made a list of things the didn’t go so well in 2012 and that need to be fixed. A lot of the items on the “need to be fixed” list are being fixed with the new PASS! Yeaa! I wanted an easier way for my clients to download their images, I didn’t want to upload a separate Smugmug gallery for prints and I wanted to love the actual PASS gallery interface. The PASS team delivered!!

The Posing Evolution | UNITED Class

  • Jeremy + Ashley

UNITED, I offered a little breakout class for an hour and a 1/2 called “The Posing Evolution”… well, that’s what it was supposed to be called…. it went on the schedule as “Flow Posing”. Katelyn James’ “Flow Posing” class was later nicknamed “Flo-Po” by my dear friend Jeremy Kester. That nickname has now stuck and those that attended the class and are blogging images are now officially referring to it as “KJ’s Flo-Po”. Ha! That will NOT become the permanent name for this class! I’ve already printed the pamphlets! So what is the “Posing Evolution” you might ask? Well, I’m not sharing ALL of my secrets

I knew It!

  • Snow Storm Saturn

I knew we would have one more snow!! The snow critics kept saying “No way, it’s totally missing us” but deep down I had some hope! Yesterday morning we woke up to several inches and the snow just continued throughout the day! It was beautiful! I could work and watch snow falling EVERYDAY! The crazy thing that I’m realizing this year is that all of these big storms now have NAMES?! What? Snow storm “Saturn”. First of all, who decided to start naming snowstorms and WHY would they pick “Saturn” after we just had a “Sandy”?! Give us a little variety here!
