The Collection

Introducing The KJ Consistency Course

Editing & Curating for a Defined Style

filed in:

This is a post that seems so surreal to write. I remember when I first decided to launch our online store…. I wanted to provide a way for photographers to learn from us no matter WHERE they were in the world. We started the educational side of our business with big dreams and big goals but we NEVER imagined the impact it would have. After launching The KJ Collection, I always had this idea in the back of my mind….

I wanted to offer a course online.

I knew it was possible… but it’s a lot of hard work. It’s a lot of planning. It’s a lot of energy…. and it’s A LOT of content. Michael and I had an honest discussion about this before we decided to move forward with this big project. We asked ourselves “Can we really give away ALL of my editing secrets? Is it going to hurt us to tell the world how to create work like us? Is it SMART to offer this online for ANYONE to have access? LIFETIME ACCESS?!” ….. And you know what we decided…..

We decided that this project wouldn’t just be about teaching people to edit and define a style, it would be about having a LIFE. We realized that we have the power to give photographers their LIFE back and so we decided to GO FOR IT. We made the decision to create a course that will be a game changer for photographers because changing their LIFE was more important than the fear of someone else trying to be an exact copy of us!!

So now that you know how we got to this place…. we are SO excited to announce…….. THE KJ CONSISTENCY COURSE : Editing and Curating for a Defined Style!

The 6 week, self-paced KJ Consistency Course | Editing & Curating for a Defined Style by Katelyn James PhotographyThis past week we launched our FIRST online course! The KJ Consistency Course  is 6 weeks long, self-paced and allows photographers to have LIFETIME access to the 12 hours of educational video content that they’ll be receiving! This is BY FAR the most exciting educational opportunity we have EVER offered online and registration will remain open until THIS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 20th!!!

There is SO much you need to know about this course… but the MAIN thing I want to make sure you know is that we actually have a BONUS that we’re giving away to course students and this is one of my FAVORITE parts about this course!

As some of you may know… if you follow the blog… we blog weddings FAST…. most of the time, they are prepped and ready for the blog within 48-hours of shooting them!! When you combine efficient editing, a strategic curating system and our 48-hour workflow to your post-processing system…. you GET. YOUR. LIFE. BACK!!! Michael and I couldn’t survive wedding season without this in our life. So! We have actually decided to include the 48 HOUR WORKFLOW into the course as a BONUS module!!! Not only are we including this bonus module, we’re ALSO including… for the first time ever.. one of my LIGHTROOM PRESETS!!!! This is CRAZY!!

I still can’t believe that we’re doing this! We are so excited for all of the amazing photographers who are going to be learning from us starting December 1st! It’s going to be amazing!! If you’re someone who struggles with editing, struggles with blogging, struggles with defining your style or curating your images… this was made with you in mind.

Tyler + Abby | Engaged A Washington DC Capitol Engagement Session

This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.

When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!

Nikhil + Paige | Engaged A South Congress Engagement Session

This session is beautiful… if I do say so myself! It’s colorful, it’s vibrant, it’s full of joy and it’s also LONG! It’s a lengthy post because I just had so many favorites and I absolutely loved my time with these two last week! Paige, like a lot of our brides, is a photographer herself! She’s talented, full of life, energetic and creative. I felt the pressure to take this location that she knows well and make it look fresh and knew to her!! Nikhil is an audio engineer for Apple (which we think is fascinating!) and despite hardly ever wearing a suit, he wore one for Paige and made all of her outfit dreams come true!

I’m so excited to share this final 2020 Wedding with you all!! It’s a special one! We photographed this beautiful wedding day on our own 10 year anniversary! Ten years ago on this day, we were celebrating in my parent’s backyard under a massive white tent too! This was my brother-in-law’s baby sister’s wedding day and celebrating with the Malizia family was such a treat! They are a family MADE for weddings!

Nick + Katherine | Maternity Oatlands Historic Home and Gardens Portrait Session

Well, I realize this isn’t normal for KJ! I don’t shoot portraits these days but this session was my first non-wedding shoot with my new Canon R6 and I’m obsessed with how these images turned out! It was the most perfect evening for this early fall shoot and the light was incredible!
