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...

An Alaskan Coastline Engagement Shoot

  • Tyler + Katie | Engaged Part 2

to beat a glacier but I’m equally excited about this second part of Tyler and Katie’s engagement session because we were TOTALLY at the right place at the right time! If we had been just 5 minutes later, we would have been rained out and the shots on the water would have been hazy and grey. We pulled off of the Seward Highway just in time to catch some of the sun’s final rays because the storm clouds rolled in. You can actually see the storm coming in the background of the images! Tyler and Katie are such pros! We took ALL of these in a total of probably 45mins and that’s including travel time! Whew!

An Engagement Session on a Glacier

  • Tyler + Katie | Engaged Part 1

many of you know by now… we’re currently in Alaska!! Anchorage to be exact! We flew up here to visit friends and to shoot an engagement session for a couple that we love to pieces! Sadly, our trip is coming to an end soon but this is just the BEGINNING of the excitement for you guys!! I think I have about a WEEK’S worth of images to share and you’re going to love them all!! I’m just beside myself with excitement! I rarely proclaim that I have any “favorite” wedding or engagement shoot because I don’t want to show favoritism and be unfair… but I’m going to go ahead and admit that this has been my favorite engagement session to DATE!

From Alaska!

  • A Message to our Mothers

we travel, I tend to take instagrams right before we take off not just to document the beginning of our trip, but because I know my momma will like it. We’ve been exploring Alaska the last few days and I don’t know how many times I’ve said, “lets take a group picture together… our moms will love it!!” You see, a long time ago, we were all little kids living in good ol’ Sparta VA! We all grew up together… with the exception of Tyler but hey! Come October, he’ll be a part of the fam!! This group (we’re missing one, she was hard at work during this picture!) of friends have known each other
