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...

Shockhoe Bottom Richmond Engagement Photos

Hunter + Britne | Engaged

  • Shockhoe Bottom Richmond Engagement Pictures

Well where do I start with this one?! This shoot is so special to me. When my sister Emily was in college, I made SEVERAL trips to visit her. She’s a Hokie and so it was quite a commitment to travel to Tech from my college in the Newport News area. (For those that have NO idea about Virginia’s layout, this is about a 5 hour drive!!). So why did I love going to visit so much? Because I love my sister and I LOVE her friends.

Curtis + Lauren | Engaged

  • A Maymont Engagement Session

When the first part of the first email talks about how a bride just got engaged to her high school sweetheart… it catches my attention. These two have dated LONGER than Michael and I did! We dated for 8 YEARS and Curtis and Lauren have us beat!! They met while working at Ukrops during their teenage years…. and now all of us Virginians are craving White House rolls and rainbow cookies… am I right?! Evidently White House Rolls are loved by their ENTIRE family because Charley (their cute pup) didn’t have a bag of Beggin Strips… he had a bag of chopped up White House Rolls instead!

Defining success in the wedding photography industry video blog by Katelyn James

Are You Really Successful?

  • Ask Anything

I’m not going to say much here because I say a little TOO much on today’s video blog! Today’s post almost wasn’t shared. I recorded it and then I worried that what I was trying to say wouldn’t make sense. Basically, I wanted to share a little bit of my heart about some struggles I’ve had and some points of tension that I think EVERYONE experiences at some point in their business! If this resonates with you… SHARE IT!! Everyone feels better when they realize that they aren’t the only ones struggling!! In fact, knowing that we’re not alone makes us realize that we’re NORMAL!!! Enjoy this little piece of my heart and happy Wednesday!
