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.

was April 2nd… and I totally forgot that I was supposed to do a “Goals” post. I was a little blindsided by my package that arrived! The Mark III has been good to me the past two days and I get to use her again tonight at another engagement session! It’s been a whirlwind the last couple of days. I’ve had three shoots since Saturday and one more tonight. I think I had forgotten what this feels like! I’ve had a good break. December-March was a time to regroup, get taxes straight, fix things that didn’t go so well last year and gear up for another crazy wedding season. When you book a crazy wedding season, then you have to expect a TON of engagements as well.

think that “Wedding Wednesday’s” don’t exist anymore!! Well, they do, no worries…. but today is the 1st of the month and I’m trying to get better about staying consistent with my monthly to-do’s on the 1st of the month.  I have a “Monthly Duty Day” that I’m sure I’ll blog about sometime. Basically, I have a list of little things that HAVE to be accomplished each month and I choose one day to do them all! So today is the day! It’s also time for this month’s SNAPSHOT post! I just re-read my january post and I have to say that I acomplished almost EVERYTHING in the “Business Goals” section! That’s a HUGE WIN for me!!
