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 Georgetown & Great Falls Engagement Session

  • Anthony + Melissa | Engaged

Melissa mentioned that she really wanted some pictures at Great Falls and so we planned on two locations for their shoot. Little did I know just how EPIC Great Falls is!! I feel so silly that I have never seen this gorgeous part of our amazing state! The more I see of Virginia, the more I love it! We live in such a gorgeous part of the country and it makes for incredible backdrops!! Anthony, Melissa, Nala (their adorable pup!) and Anthony’s sweet sister met us in Georgetown for their shoot and I have to say… we timed the lighting perfectly with the canal!

A Downtown Richmond Engagement Session

  • Trevor + Becky | Engaged

Since starting my “rebranding” process, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I consistently love shooting. I love the soft, romantic shots that we capture for our couples… but I really feel like I’ve done well with a shoot when I’ve captured the JOY of my couple to some degree. It’s not always easy to capture “Joy” but there are some couples who are naturally joyful and that makes my job easy! Joyful couples are the ideal KJ couple!! So it was such a pleasant surprise to find that Trevor and Becky are not only full of joy, they’re full of laughter!
