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 Penn State Campus Engagement

  • Kevin + Erika | Engaged

have seen these two before! If you don’t recognize them, let me refresh your memory! Kevin emailed me way back in the spring and asked if he could setup a coaching session for his girlfriend, Erika. I normally don’t do this just because I don’t have extra days for more coaching but I said ok because there was something really special about this coaching session…. he was going to propose during it!!! It went perfectly and Michael and I absolutely loved getting to know these two during that amazing day here in Richmond! Who knew that saying yes to one email would result in such a fun experience and new friendships!

A Tuckahoe Plantation Engagement

  • Joe + Perrin | Engaged

are some people that I meet and I immediately think to myself “Aw I can’t wait for Michael to meet them!”. Michael and I love people… that seems like such a silly statement but we do. We love people and we love getting to know awesome couples. Joe and Perrin are one of those awesome couples. I knew they were going to be super sweet because one of Perrin’s best friends (and one of my past brides) texted me before their engagement session just to let me know how awesome they are and that she was excited for me to meet them. :) So Joe and Perrin, 1. You can rest assured that you are loved dearly

A Taproot Farm Wedding | Capon Bridge, WV

  • Ian + Jennifer

She emailed me and said that she was getting married on her parent’s farm in West Virginia and I was so excited! I love weddings that take place at home! Our wedding reception was held in my parent’s backyard and I couldn’t have imagine it anywhere else. As Michael and I pulled up to the quaint yellow house overlooking the field where the reception would take place, it reminded me so much of our wedding day. Friends and family were running around prepping last minute details and as I talked to Jenny’s mom, she told that it took an army of friends to pull this wedding off. As hard as DIY weddings are, there is something so wonderful about getting married in a place that means so much to you. I loved seeing to-do lists around the house and I watching friends, cousins and other family members pitch in throughout the day. Their labor of love truly paid off because Ian and Jenny’s day couldn’t have been more beautiful.
