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...

May 2012

  • The Snapshot

is that I actually accomplished a lot this past month! Instead of reading my monthly “goals” and cringing, I found myself saying “Oh, I actually DID that!”. It’s amazing how great it feels to officially mark something off the to-do list permanently!  Albums are being ordered and approved, I drank more water, I made a master grocery shopping list and we have stuck to the new budget pretty well. Now, there were somethings on my goals from last month that contradicted each other! Like: “Buy new teal vases for the kitchen” and “Stick to the budget”.  I’m really surprised no one called me out on that one!

Reception Lighting Setup

  • Ask Anything

late afternoon crowd! I’ve been running around like crazy today and I’m just now getting a chance to sit down at the computer for an hour before the next event of the day begins. I’ve been doing things like grocery shopping, speaking at a local high school’s photo class, grabbing a quick lunch with my husband before he drives to DC for class and searching for a 16×20 white frame at all the local Targets so that I can finish my “Production Wall” Re-vamp. I feel much better after I list what I’ve spent all morning doing because I really HATE being a late blogger! Ugh. Who wants to read a blog post at 3:30 in the afternoon? Everyone is tired and ready to be HOME!

Happy Friday

  • His Face

gone ALL week. Tuesday I shot a bridal session and then drove to Virginia Tech to visit my sis before she graduates and enters the REAL world. (Seriously, watching 3 movies a day and hanging out with your best friends unfortunately isn’t the real  world)  But it’s fun to act like I’m still in college every now and then. After the VT trip, I met Michael for a conference and we’re in the mountains until tomorrow.  Normally people would be away from home and miss their bed, or their routine…… but I miss this furry little face.  After 3 days away from him I forget that he chewed a hole in the carpet last week, I forget that unfortunately he isn’t 100% potty trained
