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...

Coleman + Leslie

  • An Obici House Wedding | Suffolk, VA

They met when they were young… they even dated when they were young….and then after they went their separate ways, somehow they ended up at the same school and back in each other’s lives. It wasn’t long before they were official again. This time it was for real. I remember Leslie telling me that they were dating and I knew this was different. There was such a certainty about this relationship and everyone felt the same thing.  Maybe that’s because they look like Ken and Barbie… beautiful blue-eyed blondes…or maybe it’s much deeper than how cute they look together… maybe there is a certainty and confidence in their relationship because the foundation of their love is based on something greater than themselves.

 

The Snapshot

  • September 2011

again. A new month.  August didn’t fly by quite as fast as the other months this summer and I’m thankful.  I think that’s because I had a weekend off… YESSS! We still had things to do and weren’t in town but it was a weekend away with Michael and no wedding! The Lord knows what He’s doing when he gives you a weekend of NOTHING. I know a lot of photographers (including myself) have seasons of doubt when it comes to booking for next year.  We quickly become worried about those empty weekends… and I remember at one point last year thinking “Why is my AUGUST SO EMPTY?!!”.

Meet Amber

  • Family Farm Senior Portrait Session

I really got to know Amber I’ve been hearing “Oh, you’re doing my senior pics!”. ha! She’s been talking about this for a WHILE and we FINALLY got them done this past week! Amber is entering her senior year and I can’t believe how fast these two+ years have flown by. One minute I’m meeting sophomores in highschool and the next minute they’re graduating!! It’s crazy!! So Amber know exactly what she wanted for her portraits. She wanted to shoot them on her family’s farm in Goochland. It’s a beautiful location with rustic barns, old tractors, barking hunting dogs and a lot of golden light that was so perfect for her portraits!!
