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...

New and Improved

  • Bokeh Boy

makeover everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you already know this but my mother has been grooming Bokeh Boy for the last month or so and she’s scissor happy!!! He’s so short!!! But we’re finding that his shorter hair is MUCH easier to manage, especially when it’s still somewhat warm outside. So Bokeh has had a mini makeover and I actually think that he looks more “puppy-like” than he did before! Maybe it’s the ears? I don’t know… but we like it. He’s a cutie no matter how long his hair is! I still think we need to let him be a big fluff ball every now and then!!!! Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!

  • Garrett + Rachel

I feel like I should pinch myself! Looking back over the last two years, my blog has been full of our friend’s weddings!! First of all, it’s amazing to see all of these amazing couples starting their lives together and secondly, I’m just honored that I have been able to be a part of them!! It’s an awesome feeling to be able to serve my friends in this way and I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of Garrett and Rachel’s wedding day! This wedding day was so incredible to watch because I remember sitting on the couches at our campus bakery shop talking with Rachel about when this day would come. She was only a freshman and she had really only seen Garrett from a distance… but she liked him.

Happy Anniversary Michael

Can you believe this? Today, two years ago… at this very moment, I was getting my hair done and trying not to freak out because the wind was blowing all of our centerpieces over!! You were hanging out at your house with your best friends and we were preparing for our wedding day. 10.10.10 had been talked up for over a YEAR with all of family and friends. It was a big day… a MONUMENTAL day!!  We waited almost a decade for this!!  As the day went on, I met you for our first look and we got teary eyed just enough to make my fake eyelashes fall off.  We took our portraits with Jasmine and JD and that hour seemed
