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...

Brent + Sara | Engaged

  • Travel Inspired Engagement Pictures | Richmond, Virginia

These two just booked a few weeks ago and I loved getting to put faces with names to quickly! Their love love started in the most unassuming way. Brent had flown in for a business class and Sara just happened to one of the few girls in the class as well. Being so outnumbered, she didn’t notice him but he noticed her. Eventually Sara picked up the social cues and the connection was obvious. The rest is history! Brent and Sara are getting married this year at The Mill at Fine Creek and we are so excited to be a part of their big day!

Prepping for 2015

  • Good Things | I Need Some Advice!

Michael and I are enjoying a nice break from weddings right now. We love waking up on Saturdays and not rushing to a wedding! It’s awesome! We feel like NORMAL people! …. However, I know it won’t be long until I’m ready for some gorgeous weddings to come back into my life! Rest ultimately prepares you for work! Looking forward to our 2015 Wedding season, I have a few things that I know that I need to find. I’m hoping that some of you out there (since a lot of wedding photographers check this blog!) will be able to give us some advice!

Should Photographers Interrupt A Wedding Day?

  • Ask Anything

Some people have asked us about our shooting style. This is something that brides will sometimes ask and it’s also something that “The Knot” tells brides to ask their photographers. (You know, that list of 30 questions that you receive over a over again? Note to self, answer them once and then SAVE them!) It’s a great question! What brides want to know is, how do we ACT on a wedding day? Are we involved? Do we just stand back and capture candidly? Will they need to know how to pose on their own? Will we let them be themselves or will EVERY pose be arranged by us?
