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...

We're Speaking!!

  • Connect Retreat 2014

This is fun!! After the Connect Retreat this past year, I didn’t do a massive recap because I knew that down the road, the promotional film would be done and I would want to share it! Well it’s here and it’s AWESOME!!! However, not only do I get the share the film but I’m also SO excited to share that Michael and I will actually be SPEAKING at Connect in 2014!!! We’re so honored! We know we’re such newbies when it comes to being a husband and wife team but we’re so excited to represent the newer crowd at the retreat!!

  • Andrew + Katie

There is something SO rewarding about your clients really GETTING what you’re trying to do with your business. The goal of my business isn’t to sell a bunch of marked up stuff and then move on to the next wedding… the goal is to form relationships with my couples and give them an amazing experience that blesses them and leaves them with awesome images of their wedding day! To me, having awesome friendships with my clients is 100x more valuable than any package price. So when we saw Andrew and Katie at Huey and Natalie’s wedding and Andrew said that he couldn’t wait to see us in a week because we felt like old friends, I melted! That’s the goal! That’s why Michael and I absolutely love doing what we do! We have the privilege of meeting the most amazing couples and then we get to celebrate their wedding day with them AND be the ones capturing precious moments! It’s quite an honor!!!

  • 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!
