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...

Which is right for you?

  • DSLR's vs. The Point&Shoots

been a EXPLOSIVE amount of new photographers in the last 3 years. It’s unreal! And the reason for this is because starter DSLR cameras are at an all time low. When I bought my Canon Rebel xti back in 2006, it was $1200 and came “fully equipped” with the cheapest tripod known to man, a traveling case and a lens “extender”.   You photogs out there may be wondering what a “lens extender” is. Well, it’s a little lens that attaches on to the end of any lens and does absolutely nothing. It makes the lens LOOK bigger but doesn’t have any purpose.  I got suckered into buying so much CRAP when I first ventured into the world of Digital SLR cameras.

  • Featured Friday

are in for a treat this morning… or afternoon. I think 11:45am is still the morning…especially on days when I wake up at 10:30! I don’t get to do that very often but right now I’m at VA Tech visiting my sister and her sweet roomies. So I’m acting like I’m in college again…. checking FB too much, eating cereal at 1am and sleeping in half the day. Ahhhh, it’s so nice. I miss this life! So anyway, back to your treat! You get to meet The FABULOUS Ali Williamson today. Seriously. Ali is one of those girls that you meet  and instantly think “aww… she’s a sweetheart and I secretly want to be best friends”.

And Thanks Lite98!

  • Come to Jazz Nativity!

up since 5:00am….. this NEVER happens. I can’t believe it’s only 9:30! I feel like 1/2 my day has already gone by! It’s crazy!!! So I didn’t wake up at 5am just to see how it would feel (I will never do that). I got up early so that I would be awake enough to sing on Lite98 at 6:45am!! Our church is promoting our annual JAZZ NATIVITY and Lite98 allowed us to come into the station and play a few live songs for their morning show! Woohoo! What an honor! We’re very thankful for their support and for allowing up to have such a huge platform to advertise this event. You may remember me blogging about this LAST YEAR.
