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...

KJ Bridal Guide 2.0 now available in The Collection!! | Katelyn James Photography

The KJ Bridal Guide 2.0 is HERE!

  • And it's on SALE for a Limited Time!

Two years ago I finished a project that had taken me TWO YEARS to complete!! My goal was to create a Bridal Magazine for my brides to enjoy and to send this to them as their “Welcome Gift” right after they booked with us! Well, what I didn’t realize was that this Bridal Guide was going to become the single greatest piece of my entire Wedding Experience AND give me some of my life back!! All I was hoping for was a great gift for my couples and this 76-page magazine started to transform our wedding days in the most AMAZING ways possible!!!

Bokeh Behind the Scenes

  • The Workshop From a Bichpoo's Perspective

Bokeh boy has the power to derail absolutely ANY point that I’m trying to make while teaching at the workshop! Multiple times during our workshops, Bokeh will have what we call a “Bichon” moment where he SPRINTS into the living room with a toy flying through the air. He’s basically making a scene to make sure EVERYONE still knows how cute he is! It doesn’t matter how great I’m teaching, I can’t help but stop and laugh at how ridiculous he’s being!!!

The Workshop Experience

  • February 2015 | Behind the Scenes

I’m constantly amazed at how we seem to get the absolute BEST group of people together for our workshops!! After day two girls from Texas and VA were like besties and Bokeh had licked almost everyone in the face at least once! Personalities meshed and our attendees were quick to encourage and be patient when questions took a little longer than expected. The respect amongst this group of photographers blew me away. I always get nervous before workshops…. always.
