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...

Plugs, Puppy Sitters & Progress

  • The New House

you say? Well, it’s a very, VERY confusing electrical map of our first floor of the new house. While it looks like a hot mess, it’s really quite exciting. We walked through the whole house yesterday morning and added receptacles, scooted recessed lights and talked about switches. We’re so new to this and we’re so thankful for our site manager’s patience. The crazy thing is that we’re leaving for California for a week and so who knows what will change while we’re gone!! Pretty soon we’ll have siding and STONE (yes, stone:) and some brick! The windows are in, the plumbing is run and the electrical is a work in progress.

Building Brand Loyalty

  • Showit UNITED

is a busy day! We’re prepping for our “Electrical Walkthrough” in the new house. This is super intimidating and yet exciting! I’m ALSO prepping for my talk for Showit UNITED presentation that I’ll be presenting NEXT TUESDAY in Santa Barbara! I’m thankful this is happening on Tuesday so that I can enjoy the rest of the week without practicing my talk in the shower and annoying my husband! I’m speaking on something that has really been a GAME changer for me and my business over the last 4 years, BRAND LOYALTY. Over the last several years, we’ve experienced what it means to have a “following”… or better titled… a “Community”.

& our "Impact" list

  • The CNU Chapel

people in life that inspire us. Whether they are celebrities or a family member or even a peer…. almost everyone has someone they look up to. Michael and I are very thankful that we have an abundance of people in our life that we admire and look up to in so many different ways. I like to think of these people as being on our “Impact” list. In some way, shape or form, these individuals came into our lives and they had a profound impact on us. Maybe they made an impact on our marriage…. maybe their leadership was inspiring…. or maybe their public declaration of their faith was what made such a great impression.
