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 Waterfront Marina Engagement Shoot

  • Keith + Katelyn | Engaged

We met them at Keith’s parent’s house up in northern Virginia one evening this week. Katelyn opened the door, we met each other for the first time and 20 minutes later we had to make a conscious decision to stop talking and head out the door for the shoot!! Wedding venues, waterfront property, lawn care… we talked about it all! We could have chatted with these two forever! They are such a fun, genuine couple who can make anyone feel welcomed. I love couples like this!! This is how it should be!

Take a Little Break from the Daily Demands

  • Refreshed and Reset

It’s been a LONG time since I have been able to blog something other than engagement shoots and weddings. That has been our life the last few months. This is our craziest time of the year and while we’re so thankful for our work and our clients, I’m looking forward to lazy winter mornings when I can blog about Bokeh Boy or a new home decorating project…. or a new Ask Anything post! The end is near and it’s bittersweet. We love this job and I leave every wedding with a huge “Mission Accomplished” feeling!! It’s incredible to look back at the past year and see all that we accomplished.

A Riverside Engagement Shoot | Richmond VA

  • Tony + Gabby | Engaged

we’re headed to shoot an engagement session and meet a new couple for the first time, I always know it’s going to go well when they are CNU alumni! :) I’m a bit biased but I think only awesome people go to CNU! We love that school and we love working with couples that went to our Alma Mater too!! Tony and Gabby are getting married next year and we can’t wait to celebrate alongside of them with our cameras in hand! These two both come from Italian families and from our past experiences from Italian weddings, I think it’s safe to say this is going to be one amazing party!
