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...

Chromatic Aberration... Ewww

  • Ask Anything

photographer has dealt with this at some point or another. And if a photographer says to you “I’ve never had an issue with Chromatic Aberration”, chances are, they have but they aren’t aware of it! It’s a TINY little issue that photographers run into with intricate details in images. Please don’t ask me to explain what causes chromatic aberration in detail because I already sound nerdy enough just mentioning the name!! (And to be honest, I really don’t know!) What I DO know is that when you’re shooting heavily detailed things, chromatic aberration has the possibility of rearing its’ ugly head!

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
