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...

love something… you like talking about it. That’s just the way it goes. Why do I show everyone pictures of my dog when chances are, they’ve already seen him… because I LOVE him!! So when it comes to photography and answering questions, I’m in my element. Now, this doesn’t mean I want to discuss aperture settings and backlighting while I’m sitting at the dinner table… but when I do have a chance to talk business with other photographers, it’s fun for me! The BEST type of photography conversation is one that allows me to help newer photographers grow.

What a life!!!  I think it’s safe to say that when you constantly envy the pace of life that your dog enjoys, maybe it’s time for a BREAK! I just finished the last wedding of the season on Saturday, took a quick trip to California for 3 days and tomorrow

So, some photographers are purely ARTSY… and the business side of their work drives them insane…. almost to the point of burnt out if they don’t get help! Then there are photographers like me that actually ENJOY the business side in some weird way!! It’s strange right?! Well there has to be a happy medium. You HAVE to be creative and push yourself artistically but in order to grow a business
