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!Β  Read more...

September 2013 | Erin, Casey, Ashley, Amanda & Chad

  • Coaching

hard to believe that I’m already posting September’s coaching sessions. I mean, how did that happen?! How are we almost done with the first week of October!? I LOVE FALL…. it’s my favorite time of the year! …. But it’s also our busiest season of the year here in Virginia. Brides just love to have fall weddings and I completely understand because we had a fall wedding!! :) However, I do wake up some mornings and wish that things would slow down a bit so that we could enjoy the season a little bit more.

A Bell Haven Engagement Shoot

  • Hutch + Kerri | Engaged

to this quaint, historic property that was tucked away in the hills of Scottsville, VA. The light was just low enough to be peaking through the trees and it was a beautiful 75 degrees. The perfect day for an engagement session! It’s crazy to think about but I think this was the 33rd engagement shoot of 2013! WOW. We have shot engagements for all of our 2013 couples and now we’re getting to know our 2014 couples through their engagement shoots and I love it! After every engagement, I leave thinking to myself “Welp, another awesome couple for 2014!”.

A Claytor Lake Engagement

  • Robert + Ashley | Engaged

you could call this a “destination” engagement session! Claytor Lake is out past Blacksburg, VA and I can’t believe I had never heard of it until last week when we met Robert and Ashley there for their engagement session! Robert’s family has a home on this gorgeous lake and so this is a special place to both of them! Michael and I loved making the drive up together. The weather was perfect and the lighting was just beautiful! The further we move into fall, the more I’m ready for it! I love it when new colors start popping up in engagement sessions!!
