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...

March 2013 | Amanda and Sarah

  • Coaching

be thinking “Gosh Katelyn, it seems like you’re coaching every week!”…. and that’s almost true. The past two months I have had coaching sessions back to back and while it’s a lot of work, I have had some amazing people come through our doors!! Amanda and Sarah are friends that I have known in the industry for a while. They have both attended workshops with me and other photographers in the area and they are all about making this dream happen!! What I love most about coaching sessions is allowing people to set their goals. It almost feels like I’m giving them that final PUSH that will take them over the top to make big things

A Church Hill Engagement Shoot

  • Darrell + Meredith | Engaged

is a sick day. I have a cold and while it’s no fun, I’m SO thankful that it’s happening now and not on a wedding day!! It’s actually the perfect day to have a cold because I’m spending all day in my office editing, emailing and filing paperwork! Doesn’t that sound like so much FUN?! To most people, the answer to that question would be “No”. However, it’s fun for me because I get excited about sharing new images of new couples on the blog!! Darrell and Meredith will be getting married this spring… Like, REALLY soon! So you’ll have a change to see them again in a few weeks.

St. Catherine's Senior Shoot

  • Meet Tori

days when I wish I could offer portraits again! I only offer portraits to friends and family because our time is so dominated by our weddings. We LOVE our wedding clients and that is definitely where our heart is but I do LOVE shooting senior portraits for our kids from church! It’s just FUN! I love my time with them and it’s especially fun to photograph the girls! I mean really, what teenage girl doesn’t love modeling for 2 hours?! Tori and her mom walked the campus of St. Catherines School last week and had a blast!
