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...

Richmond Share Group Fun

  • SHARE Group Cook-IN!

have been a little busy the last few months and as much as I hate to say it, our SHARE group hasn’t met as often as they should have! The Richmond SHARE group is just a localized group of photographers that all use Showit in some way and we’re friends! The funny (and somewhat sad) thing is that most of our group isn’t from Richmond and they drive several HOURS to get together because there is such a lack of friendly community in the industry where they are located. So our “Richmond” share group could really be called the “Central Virginia” share group! We had friends from all over come to hangout last Wednesday!

A Downtown Charlottesville Engagement Shoot

  • Ian + Jennifer | Engaged

couple has their own story. For Ian and Jenny, they would probably say that their current story consists of of a lot of TRAVELING! They are living in Colorado and are planning a wedding in West Virginia! Their wedding day will be celebrated at Jenny’s family’s farm and I cannot WAIT to be a part of it! As we walked around the streets of Charlottesville’s downtown mall, we talked about the planning and all that they were accomplishing on this visit home. I can’t believe I thought it was hard to plan MY wedding! …. They are doing all of this long distance! It’s quite impressive! Ian and Jenny have a shared love for travel.

June 2013 | Johnna, Ashlie, Terri, Brooke

  • Coaching

pulled up in a shiny Chrysler 300 and I told Michael “Wow, they lucked out with a cool rental car!!”. Ashlie and Johnna got out of the car and I greeted them and then stated what I thought was the obvious “Nice rental car!”. Ashlie laughed and said of this isn’t a rental, this is mine!” I replied with “Umm, but aren’t you from TEXAS?!”. They laughed and told me that Johnna was from Texas and Ashlie was from Missouri and they DROVE HERE!!!!!!! Yes, they DROVE to Virginia from half a country away. They were so impressed with the mountains that they crossed in Charlottesville because they are from the plains.
