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...

Why We Don’t Like Asking for Help

  • Ask Anything

I have a love/hate relationship with asking for help or really any advice for that matter. You see, when you ask for help, you aren’t just simply asking a question, you’re inviting someone else to weigh in on your situation. Maybe I’m the only one who’s like this but I’m VERY protective over this business that Michael and I have created over the years. We’ve worked hard to get it to where it is today and so I don’t go to just anyone for advice. I ask for advice from people who have done what I want to do and who I TRUST.

The craziest part of the storm was the fact that it seemed to just SIT on top of us for half a day on Saturday… dumping over a foot of snow!

Where to Find Us in Spring 2016!

  • Speaking Dates

It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year again. We’re prepping for new weddings, new schedules, new trips, new ideas for the Collection, new speaking engagements!! I thought it would be helpful to see all of our speaking locations in one place! When I look at this list, I really can’t express how honored I am to be a part of these events. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was gearing up for my very first WPPI Platform talk and I was so nervous! I get nervous just thinking about it!! Speaking of WPPI….
