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 Big Exciting Project for KJP!

  • Let it go.....

This weekend marks the FIRST day of our “off” season!! Sure, we have a few more engagement shoots, but we photographed our final wedding of 2014 on Saturday and I feel like I’m constantly hearing the “Mission Impossible” theme song swirling around in my head!! We have been so blessed this season. Amazing couples, great timelines, only a few rainy days and no sickness! I’m knocking on wood right now because I don’t want this to change next year. We haven’t even had so much as a cold this year. How in the world does that happen?!

Styled Shoot | September 2014 Workshop Experience

  • Rustic Caramel Fall Shoot

is here!!! It’s so funny, the rest of the world talks about Friday as if “they’ve MADE IT!!!”…. and I think of Friday as, “This is my last day to get stuff done!”. :) Our job makes our week look so different from what normal people experience. But I’ll take it! … Because I just rolled out of bed at 9:00 and I’m blogging in yoga pants. So life is good. I’ll take working on Saturdays over having a strict, concrete schedule during the week ANYDAY! One thing that our schedule allows us to do is plan workshops during the week.

Live Audience Educational Experience

  • Branding & Marketing

week has been a whirlwind for us!! How is it only Thursday?! It feels like it should at least by Saturday by now! After our two-day workshops, we always feel a little disheveled. It takes us a while to get life and our HOUSE back in order! Right now there are still dishes stacked in the sink, my lenses are all over the house, the dust bunnies are congregating in every corner and there’s a massive pile of clothes on the floor of my closet. Today is rainy and stormy and so we’re excited to be home all day to get our life back to normal!
