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 Pinterest Should be a part of Every Business!

  • The Power of Pinning

heard of it, I called it “Pin-Interest”… like a dork.  Come on Katelyn, READ! “PINTEREST”! One word, two syllables. It’s not that hard. I had no idea what this was, all I knew was that I had to have an INVITATION to be a part of it.  Well, of course I wanted to be a part of it!  I requested to join Pinterest and a week later I was “Pinning”.  It took me a while to understand this new phenomenon!! I added the “Pin it” button onto my browser and I started pinning EVERYTHING I loved. THIS. WAS. AWESOME. And like usual, once I find something new and AWESOME, I think to myself “Why didn’t I think of that?!!!”.

 

and the Contest Winner!!

  • Making the First Step

officially realized that CONTESTS and COMPETITIONS are NOT my thing….even when they’re not on the softball field.  Nope. There is a reason this girl doesn’t host contests on her blog very often!! I can BARELY TAKE THE PRESSURE!! I sat on the couch, staring at my computer screen and biting my nails for HOURS last night.  No joke. Michael and I were up at 1:30am still reading. Post after post after post. I would read one and then shut my laptop and say “WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF?!!!”.  I even had some of our youth group gals reading them to give me some opinions because gosh, this was just so HARD. You are all AMAZING. Seriously amazing.

Save the Dates

  • Wedding Wednesday

engaged, the first thing to do is SCREAM and call everyone you love and scream some more! Then, after calling and notifying the close friends and family, you can make the “Relationship Status” change on Facebook. That part is ALMOST as exciting as the shiny new rock on your finger!! Then you start looking at the calendar and thinking of possible dates….. and then the next step is to choose a VENUE, book it…. and then book your photographer! (Well, that’s the order that my planning took place:).  After you have booked your photographer and have shot your engagement session… the time has come for SAVE THE DATES.
