Classic Church Hill Engagement Pictures in Richmond, Virginia By Katelyn James Photography_0177

Austin + Melissa | Engaged

  • Classic Church Hill Engagement Pictures in Richmond, Virginia

The first thing you need to know is that I was nervous about this engagement session! I am always a little nervous for each engagement session but this one had even more pressure! Why? Because Austin and Melissa drove from DETROIT to RICHMOND for their engagement session! They acted like it was no big deal but to me… it was a HUGE deal! These images needed to be GORGEOUS! Ah! I always want my engagement sessions to be gorgeous but when you know your couple gave up three days to travel all the way to your town to have their portraits done, they just have to be extra perfect!

Tom + Meagan | Engaged

  • Catholic University of America Engagement Session

Every session has something that is unique about it! This session was going GREAT until a security guard told us that you can’t shoot around the largest Catholic Church in America! Luckily, we had already gotten all of our must-have shots done and we were on a roll! Tom and Meagan picked up on the poses quickly and that meant that we got a lot accomplished before we were told that professional photography wasn’t allowed! It worked out perfectly. We casually crossed the street and used some pretty locations around the Basilica!
