HEADSHOT 1-8478

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 Southern Shoot

  • Kurt + Jodi | Everyday

in a small town and then going to a small school made it super easy for Michael and I to make friends.  We’re “People People” if that makes any sense. We’re naturally drawn to people and we enjoy having friendships with A LOT of people… maybe that’s why there were 400+ people at our wedding! AHHH! Crazy. Because we’ve been together so long…we feel like we have been collecting friends from every stage of life.  We have friends from our home church, friends from CNU, friends from our new church and friends from the photography industry. We love these people and we’re so thankful for the impact they have had on our lives.

 

Preparing Your Groom for Your E-Shoot

  • Wedding Wednesday

we go! This could either be a major FAIL or something new that gets incorporated every now and then into the blog! We’ll see! Video posting and recording is NOT my strongest area! As you will be able to tell, my train of thought escapes me sometimes! However, despite my mess ups and murmuring, you get to meet Bokeh and hear 3 tips about how to PREPARE THE GROOM for the engagement session!  This is actually a VERY important  thing to consider before your shoot.  The more your fiance’ is prepared, the more relaxed he will feel and the more genuine your images will be!

 

B&B Style

  • A Quick Getaway

are still considering ourselves newlyweds. It hasn’t been two years yet…. so we’re still in that category right? It’s so funny…. when you’ve known someone your whole life and then dated them since you were 15… you think you know everything about one another… but that’s not true! We’re learning new stuff all the time and our most recent discovery is that we’re not 100% IN LOVE with staying at a Bed&Breakfast.  Weird right?! All of our friends LOVE B&B’s!! I mean, who doesn’t love a quaint little homy place to stay for the night? Now don’t get us wrong… it was awesome! The house was BEAUTIFUL, the meal was AMAZING
