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 Living Room Snippet

  • The New House

new house has brought out the perfectionist side of me. People have asked “Are you going to show more pics?!” And my thought is, “Yes of course! …When it’s perfectly decorated!” … Well reality is setting in. Our last home was just under 1300 square feet. I decorated the whole place in one weekend while Michael was on a retreat!! It was so easy because I had tons of frames from college and it didn’t take much to fill up our little house. We like to use the term “cozy” when we refer to our first house! It’s not that our new house isn’t cozy…. it’s just double the size and so what I used to be able to do in a weekend is going to take MONTHS to accomplish!

A Charlottesville Wedding at Pippin Hill

  • Bob + Jessica

Have you ever met someone that is very similar to you and has the same style as you? You just “click” and feel like you’ve been friends for forever?! That’s how I feel around Jess. We started emailing forever ago and then met up for their engagement session last year and despite the heat, we had a wonderful time and I Ieft knowing that these two were a special couple. Jess is a graphic designer with a love for TEAL and all things chic and modern! Her save the dates were a tell tale sign that we were supposed to work together! They were amazing and guess what, they were TEAL! :) Her talent was displayed every where on their wedding day. Everything was so beautiful and so elegant! Bob and Jess have amazing friends and families that came in from all over to celebrate with them and they couldn’t have picked a better venue!

June 2013

  • The Snapshot

JUNE!!! Is that not weird for anyone else!? WOW! May was such a fast month! We shot several weddings, traveled, moved and closed on our new house… it was a whirlwind for sure! We just got home yesterday from a lovely wedding in PA and I’m not flying out again until July! I’m really looking forward to being HOME… in our NEW home! I remember when my parent’s built their house when I was in middle school and after we moved in, I never wanted to leave! Everything about it was so exciting and NEW that I didn’t want to go anywhere else!
