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...

Zane + Lauren | Engaged

  • Hampton Roads Virginia Wedding photographer | Fort Monroe

I told Zane and Lauren that their engagement shoot was perfectly timed because I’ve been aching to do a shoot recently! That’s the beauty of the off-season! I take a break for a while and then I’m refreshed and ready to start rocking and rolling all over again! The best part about this shoot in particular was that is was at Fort Monroe! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE colonial columns and the cobblestone streets of Richmond but it was so much fun to shoot something NEW, something urban and something out of the ordinary!

Sharing a Secret

  • LEATHER?! Who Knew?! | CGPro Leather Wraps

Sometimes I don’t want to share my secrets. There are some things that I love and I only tell my coaching and workshop photographers about! It’s fun to share little pieces of advice with them that I haven’t talked about on the blog before…. but today I’m sharing one of those secrets! I’m sharing a resource that photographers are going to drool over! Michael and I have used CGPROPRINTS for years and we love the quality, color and the price! It’s incredible how affordable these canvases are! The SURPRISE isn’t just that we use CGPRO, it’s that CGPRO has been working on a new product!!

The Pricing Dilemma

  • Ask Anything

There are some areas of business that we all like to avoid…. TAXES and PRICING. Maybe this is just me but I literally despise “Tax talks” and I don’t enjoy the pricing conversation either! However, as much as I HATE the pricing topic, I know it’s something that has to be dealt with in any small business. In the photography world, there are dozens of different pricing approaches. I’ll be the first to say that there other options out there that are very different from our approach and they WORK! …. They actually work really WELL! However, they didn’t work for us.
