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 Business Side

  • Ask Anything

So many people have emailed me about wanting to start their own photography business. They want to know where to start, what to purchase first, how to get clients they love and when they can charge more. WHEW! If I responded to all of those questions thoroughly, it would be a 10 page email!!   When I first started my business, I had no IDEA what I was getting myself into.  I knew that I loved design, I loved photography and I loved people.  Perfect! I’ll just create a business! ….. It’s not that easy. I’m afraid owning a small business requires a HUGE amount of responsibility and there are so many things I wish I had known when I first started out.

Meet Michelle | Michelle Cross Photography

  • Featured Friday

to meet possibly the sweetest girl on the planet! Michelle came into my life two years ago in Vegas. It sounds sketchy but just bare with me. We were at WPPI when Jessie and I met this soft spoken, beautiful girl who joined us for dinner one night. The Rainforest Cafe was LOUD and the fake birds were chirping overhead but I think Jessie would agree that that night was one of our favorites!  Michelle’s calm, genuine personality makes it easy for anyone to fall in love with her… immediately. She’s married to the love of her life and together, they look like they just walked out of a magazine.

The Youth Room

  • Our House | Before and Afters

and I were “house shopping”…. I selfishly had one big requirement. I wanted an office that looked like a little cottage. When we found this little cape cod, tucked away in the west end of Richmond, we fell in love with it because 1. It had a cottage-like upstairs and 2. It had a room for Michael as well! When you walk upstairs in our home, you turn left and you’re in my Office (that I LOVE!) and then you turn right and you enter what we like to call the “Youth Room”! A better name for it would be the “Game Room”… or the “Xbox Kinect Room”…. or the “Man cave”.
