True friends are friends that see potential in you and then take a risk to tell you what you should be doing. Tyler Herrinton… without REALLY even knowing me at the time… took that exact risk. Over two years ago Ty told me that I should be doing more with video and I knew it was true but the problem was, I didn’t have anyone who could DO the video work. Well, what a coincidence! Tyler was a videographer!!! He was 100% spot on with his opinion and we are beyond thankful for him.
Two years after he sent me that email we have created SO many projects together…. one of these projects being the KJ Consistency Course! I don’t think you guys understand how much work this was not only for ME… but for Tyler… and Emily… and Michael. Everyone had a job and specific duties to fulfill each week. Week after week, lesson after lesson, workbook after workbook, video after video, module text after module text…. we completed our tasks. There have been SO many late night phone calls to Tyler asking for help or panicking because I forget something like a bonus video or a intro graphic!!
Creating a 6 week, INTENSIVE course is no joke. We literally had no idea what we were getting into and neither did Tyler! That’s why we’re so thankful for him! We couldn’t have done this without him!! We also couldn’t have created the course without Emy either!! She has been playing a huge role in the site maintenance! She manages FAQ’s, Lesson workbook editing, exporting and uploading, spell checking, directory maintenance, email management, etc… What would I do without these amazing people! And Michael?! We can’t forget about Michael! Michael has literally been holding down the fort while I made it through the last 6 weeks. He’s dealt with tears and more panic modes than I care to admit and I’m so thankful for him. He’s the one managing the initial course system setup and implementation. That was QUITE a job. Course systems aren’t for the faint at heart! He also managed the webinars!
So now that I’ve thanked the team…. I have to thank the STUDENTS! KJ Consistency Course friends, you have blown us away with your kind words! Every week when I would get overwhelmed, I would get an email from one of you explaining how this course was changing your business and it made me motivated to keep going! What a lot of you probably don’t know is that we altered the course as we went along in order to give you more of what you needed. Your questions and requests and responses actually reshaped the course into a more custom experience and so we’re beyond thankful for your feedback!! Because we’ve been so thankful for the amazing feedback, we thought we would share some of our favorite testimonials!!!
“Awesome course! Big kudos to KJ for this! I’ve purchased quite a few courses from the top wedding photography educators and this is among the best!! It’s really going to make a huge difference in how we do business! Thanks again!” -NATE
“I FINALLY know my style, my brand, my goals, and what I want. THANK YOU Katelyn James Photography! Seriously, this is the best course I have ever taken and I still have 2 more weeks!” – KATE
“Until this course, I never saw an issue with my editing. I thought I was on the right track and that I had a pretty clean edit. BEST money I ever spent!” -LOREN
“This has been an unbelievable course! I never dreamed that I would learn so much in 6 weeks. It is revolutionary!” -SHELIA
“I just finished week 3 and have definitely already learned more about editing than I did while getting a photography minor in college. Thank you so much Katelyn, I can’t wait to finish the course then rewatch it to learn even more!” – RACHEL
“I cannot express my gratitude in words. I felt like I was drowning, spinning my wheels trying to grow my business. This course has given me the courage, strength, and knowledge to actually grow my business in an efficient way! Seriously. You two are amazing. Thank you so much! 2016 = Me getting my life back and my business moving forward!” -KATIE

This session took place just 45 minutes before their welcome dinner the night before their big day! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!
Our life has been a whirlwind in the best kind of way this summer! Life sure looks a lot different than it did just a few years ago and it’s about to change AGAIN!
If you’ve ever been a member of KJ All Access, you know that it’s been an evolution since the beginning! Over 4 years of wedding content, engagement sessions, family sessions and so much more!
When you’re sorting 5,000+ photos after each wedding, staying organized is a huge priority!
We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
Have you had a troublesome groom in the past? They don’t cooperate with the poses and just want to get back to the party?
