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...

January Meetup

  • Photographers Unite

with other photographers is one of those things that we all SAY we love to do and NEED to do.. but when it comes down to actually making it happen, it rarely does. If we’re honest, it seems to be much easier for us to stay in our homes and on our computers.  When we stay at our computers, it’s a safe space where we don’t have to put ourselves out there, we don’t have to make conversation and we’re in our own little bubble. Am I the only one that feels like this?! I sure hope not! I enjoy meeting new people and forming new friendships and once I’m in a room with fun, friendly photographers, I LOVE IT!

Highlights

  • Engagements 2010

that it has been a YEAR since some of these sessions. How did 2010 fly by SO fast?! Wow. I’m sitting there looking through these images and I can’t help but realize how much I have been blessed this past year in my business.  I’ve  had amazing clients and opportunities throughout 2010 and I’m so thankful. This job is so much more than just creating beautiful images….it’s about the people…..the beautiful people that believe in me and allow me to share life with them. I cannot express how incredibly thankful I am for my 2010 couples. You have truly blessed my life and have reminded me of why I LOVE photography and PEOPLE!

a new tradition…. to second shoot a wedding at the beginning of each year! (Jessie, are you up for that?!).  It was so much fun! …. like really. Second shooting is how I started and I remember 3 years ago, I was following Jessie around, hoping not to screw up at my first wedding! Because this wasn’t my wedding, I wasn’t in charge and because I wasn’t in charge… I got to be extra creative and I LOVED IT! I tried some new things with light, details, poses and for the most part I liked the way everything turned out (some of my ideas are always a little weird….ask Jess, she’d agree!)  So I can’t thank Jessie enough for putting up with me! I love shooting with
