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...

United in Charleston

  • Folly Beach | A Sweet Reunion

Almost 8 months ago, Ali messaged us. There was talk about our whole accountability/United conference group getting together to reconnect for the week in Charleston, SC. I mean, I LOVE Charleston and so I said ok and then I didn’t think about it. I added it to calendar and it never really crossed my mind! …. Until 2 days before we were supposed to leave! I was scrambling trying to get work done and it just didn’t happen. I threw my clothes into my suitcase and off I went… work undone and blog posts unwritten.


  • Everyone Loves A Good Bow Tie

We absolutely love seeing people launch businesses and pursuing something that they love! We met Craig YEARS ago and he always had a bow tie on. I thought it was just his style but it turns out, they are one of his passions! Craig is multi-talented! Music, teaching, photography and now he’s showing off his ability to run a small business! Craig creates custom bow ties and after my week in Charleston, I’m reminded of just how much I love a good bow tie! They are EVERYWHERE down there! Such southern charm!! So we’re giving one away!!

Being Katelyn Alsop

  • A Break from the Norm

I’m in Charleston. If you follow me on Instagram you may know that. :) It’s not a conference…. it’s not business trip…. it’s not a networking event… it’s vacation. No speaking, no responsibilities and no leadership position. It’s awesome!! A few months ago, Michael and I were heading out for a non-work related trip and my good friend Julie told me “Have fun just being KATELYN ALSOP!”. That was just a simple comment but it made such an impact. This week is a “Katelyn Alsop” week.
