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...

Big Spring Farm, Lexington VA

  • Couples Retreat 2014

college I learned a lot of great things. I still remember some of my “Communication Theories” and a few of my many presentations from my four years at CNU. However, the most memorable and life changing thing I learned during my college years was the value of beautiful friendships. The friends that Michael and I made during our time at Christopher Newport University are friends that we plan on spending a lifetime with. They’re uplifting, life giving and we always leave our time with them feeling refreshed and joyful. You can’t find friends like that everywhere.

The Morning Room Makeover

  • The New House

said “Making a house a “home” is going to take some time KK”…. and she was right. As much as I wished our home could be furnished immediately, it’s taking some time to piece it together. However, with the newly decorated morning room, I’m feeling like everything downstairs is a little more “complete”!! Up until a few weeks ago, the morning room wasn’t very user friendly. We had a 5×7 Pottery Barn rug and an old settee from our first house that wouldn’t fit in any other room. It was awkward and uncomfortable and NO ONE sat on it.

A Carytown Engagement Shoot

  • Travis + Shannon | Engaged

know if you’ve noticed or not… but my blog posts have been going up a little earlier than usual this week! It’s a new habit I’m trying to form! (wish me luck!) Sometimes it can be hard to find motivation to get my posts up early… especially since I have been blogging every weekday for over 5 YEARS! Crazy right?! Well, it wasn’t hard to get motivated for this one because I absolutely adore these two. Travis and Shannon are just the cutest and I am SO thankful we were able to spend some time together on Monday for their engagement shoot before the arctic decided to come visit the east coast!
