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 Clifton Winery Wedding | Paradise Springs

  • Matt + Danielle

I arrived at Danielle’s parent’s house and needless to say, with 9 bridesmaids, there was quite a buzz happening around the house. Clothes were being ironed, makeup was being finished, and excitement was building. I made my way through the house and chatted with Danielle’s sweet mom who was just as calm as she could be and explained that she loved the commotion that was filling the house… because it wasn’t bad commotion, it was exciting! This was a big day for their family! Their only daughter was getting married to the love of her life! These two had waiting a long time for this day!! Matt and Danielle actually went on their VERY first date on September 7th, 2010, exactly three years prior to their wedding day. As Danielle walked down the aisle, you could hear soft sniffles from the pews that were filled with friends and family that love them both so dearly.

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
