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 Downtown Richmond Engagement

  • Steven + Julie | Engaged

I shoot in the city, the more I come to LOVE RVA. For those in other states or countries, etc…. “RVA” is a nickname for “Richmond, VA”. Michael and I live on the west end of the city in the suburbs and so it’s FUN to head into the city for portraits every now and then. This shoot was a little different than my normal shoots and here is why…. we started at 8AM! Yikes!! For some, that’s not early at all… but for me, it’s a new concept. Shooting that early has always been intimidating to me. I was worried that I wouldn’t feel “awake” enough to be creative!! Well, I happy to share that that wasn’t the case.

Gayton Baptist Church

  • Jazz Nativity 2012

and I were engaged and trying to figure out where we were supposed to live and what church we were supposed to get involved in, I had one hope….. PLEASE dear Lord let whatever church we find have great music!! That’s a big deal to me. I just wanted to go to a church where contemporary music was played and oh my goodness did He deliver! Gayton’s music on Sunday morning is wonderful… but when I went to my first Jazz Nativity practice back in 2010… I was BLOWN AWAY. I immediately called my parents and insisted that they needed to get their tickets NOW.  Well, they purchased tickets…

  • The Snapshot

I have to give credit to my new friend Sarah who was a part of last month’s coaching session. She took this picture of me and I think it’s hilarious because that’s how I feel today!! It’s a good day but gosh, how in the world am I going to get all of my STUFF done!!! ah!! This is the down season… but lets face it, the “down” season is when you have to prepare for the busy season. The BIG projects that have been left undone for WAY too long need to get accomplished on weeks like these!! Ahem*…. the BRIDAL GUIDE. You guys probably think that the “Bridal Guide” project is just something  I’m making up because it’s literally been in the works for what?
