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...

Puddles, 4wheeling & a Giant Sleepover

  • Girls Overnight to the Country

the simple things in life that are most enjoyable. We live in a part of town where life is FAST. Everything is fast paced. People call Shortpump a “Shopping Mecca”. We have this GINORMOUS mall and every restaurant known to man within a 5 miles radius of our house. During Christmas time, Broad street becomes a NIGHTMARE and the parking lots are a dangerous place to be.  So we decided a month ago that some girls from our youth group should have an overnight trip and we should get away from the craziness! So we took them to my parent’s home in the country!! We left last friday night and got away from the hustle and bustle of Shortpump.

The 2011 Wedding Recap

  • Behind the Scenes

I have been viewing some photographer’s blogs where they do an “end of the year review” and I love those posts.  I don’t know what I love about them so much. It’s just fun to see what everyone has accomplished and to get a “sneak peek” into what their job looks like behind the scenes. Welp! Here is my “behind the scenes” post for 2011 and I have to admit… my “behind the scenes” images are a little less than professional.  This post includes shots of me getting hung up in a briar patch, showing off less than desirable dance moves and almost tripping over a hole.  It’s really not very impressive!

A Modern Coca-cola Christmas Inspiration

  • Wedding Wednesday

I get a little ahead of myself. I woke up this morning with a list of christmas things to get done and then there was a “business” to-do list as well. One of those “Business” to-do’s was to blog Wedding Wednesday. But I wanted it to be a GOOD one. Well, it takes some work to make a GOOD Wedding Wednesday and you can’t do it halfway. So, what was once supposed to be a simple post, has turned into a entire styled shoot in my kitchen…. complete with a lighting setup and fresh flowers. I know, this is ridiculous. However, I enjoy this stuff.
