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...

A Sarasota, Florida Engagement Shoot

  • Eric + Kayla | Engaged

Michael and I have known each other our whole lives! So that means that even before we dated in high school, our families knew each other. I remember seeing his cousins, grandparents, aunt and uncles around during the holidays LONG before we were a couple. After we started dating, I started going to Thanksgivings and family trips to Charleston, WV. I feel like I’ve known his cousins my whole life!! So when Eric brought Kayla to Thanksgiving one year, we were all really excited to meet her. Not only is she gorgeous, but she has a heart of gold!!

Grand Cayman Portraits | Seven Mile Beach

  • Party Barge Portraits

finally heading home! YAY!!! After two weeks of traveling, we’re excited to head back to our bed, see family and do laundry! Whew! Normally I overpack… but this trip is proof that sometimes all of my outfits are completely necessary! I think Michael is re-wearing clothes for the third time today! Yikes! We’ve been gone for a while and we have had such a great break from the day-to-day grind of emails, blogging, editing and more editing! In my opinion, a GREAT vacation results in a renewed energy to work again! I’m definitely feeling that… but I’m also excited for Thanksgiving break! :)

A Mini Pitstop in Paradise

  • Palmetto Bluff

have noticed that my blog posts last week were a bit on the simple side. That’s beside I was on VACATION!!! And it was glorious! When you go on a cruise, you can’t have contact with the internet world and I think that’s probably one reason why we love them so much! We started our drive down to Miami last Thursday with our friends Buddy and Jill. We stopped at the SW Launch party and then headed down to South Carolina to spend the night with Bud’s sweet grandma in Hilton Head. However, before we arrived to grandma’s house… we made a little pit stop.
