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...

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.

Win a seat to The Workshop Experience

  • It's a Contest!... A Big One!!

I don’t do many contests on my blog. Some people have a contest like EVERYDAY! …not me. I think that’s because I’m not a competitive person and so I don’t even think about having contests!!!  I don’t like competition at ALL… my sister got all of the competitive genes in our family. I was the cheerleader….. with pom poms and everything. So even though I’m not a huge fan of contests in my own life, I still think there needs to be a contest today on the blog!! Here’s the deal….I’m hosting a workshop in a little over a month and I’m SO excited about it!  If you missed “The Workshop Experience” announcement
