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...

The Lineup | What's in my Bag

  • Ask Anything

first started, I blog stalked like no one’s business. I watched my favorite photographer’s EVERY move! It wasn’t because I was a creeper… even though at times I felt like one… it was because I was desperate to LEARN.  I seriously learned SO much from reading other photographer’s blogs and watching them as they continued to grow THEIR business. I wanted whatever lenses Jasmine was shooting with and whatever light setup Justin and Mary were using etc. etc. There is nothing wrong with that! It gave me a place to START! However, I think I’m finally at a place where I’m making decisions based on what “I” need for my business,

  • Our First Vacation

bands of Irene were covering the whole bottom of the east coast and the red lines of doom that showed the projected path were not in our favor. Michael and I were supposed to spend last week in Boston and then in Maine. We tried to make it work. After flights were canceled and Irene was creeping up the coast, I made the suggestion that we just drive up to Maine… in a hurricane. Michael didn’t even respond to that one. I was disappointed that our plans were not working out but Michael was determined to plan a last minute vacation.  We had been looking forward to having a week of no emails, no phone calls and NO BLOGGING!
