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!Β  Read more...

WPPI Bound

  • Packing it up!

believe it’s WPPI time already! I remember going last year and thinking “Oh my gosh…next year I’ll be coming to WPPI as a MARRIED WOMAN! Wow!”. Β  Michael traveled to WPPI with me last year to meet up with Jasmine Star and have our engagements done in the DESERT. So cool!…. literally… it was snowing/sleeting/raining but we still managed to have some awesome images (that are now all over our house!). It was fun for Michael to get to see WPPI and experience Vegas… well, experience Vegas in a very conservative sense. We love the lights and the showy-ness (is that a word??) but we’re not really into going

My Office

  • Our House | Before & Afters

on an older generation Mac Book Pro. My office went everywhere! Then I started this crazy business and I invested in an imac…. best decision ever. I can’t imagine culling, storing, editing, blogging, etc. on my laptop….even my new one! My imac was one of my smartest business decisions. However, once I got my first imac in college, that meant I had to have a desk…. and that’s when the “Office Evolution” started. My business and my dorm room were the same thing for almost 2 years. Once I upgraded my imac…. I had to find even more space! Talk about a cramped lifestyle! Thankfully I had a room to myself and I cannot thank my roommates enough for that!

Ties and Procrastination

  • Wedding Wednesday

worse than getting a bad case of “Procrastination” when you’re planning a wedding! There were some things about our wedding that I was on top of! …. For example, Michael proposed to me on a Monday Night and I emailed Jasmine Star on Tuesday morning. Actually…. I’m pretty sure I emailed her a year before I was engaged but that’s just embarrassing and I won’t tell that story. I had my priorities and finding Michael a tie wasn’t one of them. The reason I procrastinated shopping for a tie was because our suits were a strange brown color and I had NO IDEA what was going to match!
