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...

When Being One in a Million isn’t Cool

  • Life Update & Prayer Request

There has been a lot going on in our life behind the scenes…beyond moving and pregnancy and gestational diabetes. Ever since I got pregnant in the early summer, I had noticed that my right index finger was a little swollen around the knuckle. It didn’t bother me at all really. I googled it… like every pregnant woman does and shouldn’t do… and I found that pregnancy induced carpal tunnel is very common in the joints, so I didn’t worry about it. It continued to get worse, and I did wonder why it was only happening in one joint when all of the cases I had read about online were in the wrists, ankles or entire hands and feet. 

The Best of 2016

  • Weddings & Engagements

This post has been in the works for two weeks now. I have to admit that the last three weeks haven’t been what we had hoped. Not only am I eight months pregnant, I’m also learning how to type without my right index finger, because I have some crazy medical stuff going on! However! I’m learning how to get stuff done despite my slower typing, and I FINALLY get to share my favorite images of 2016!! This has been an amazing year. It was a special year for us because starting with the last wedding in May I was pregnant for the rest of the entire shooting season!

Behind the Scenes 2016

  • Our Real Life

Some of you may have heard through Instagram or Insta-stories that I’ve had some very interesting medical issues come up recently! This past Saturday I woke up with excruciating pain in my right hand, and I had an MRI this week that will hopefully tell us what’s going on! So this entire blog post is being written through talk-to-text on my phone! It’s a lot faster to say a blog post into my phone then to type it with one hand!
