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...

And Thanks Lite98!

  • Come to Jazz Nativity!

up since 5:00am….. this NEVER happens. I can’t believe it’s only 9:30! I feel like 1/2 my day has already gone by! It’s crazy!!! So I didn’t wake up at 5am just to see how it would feel (I will never do that). I got up early so that I would be awake enough to sing on Lite98 at 6:45am!! Our church is promoting our annual JAZZ NATIVITY and Lite98 allowed us to come into the station and play a few live songs for their morning show! Woohoo! What an honor! We’re very thankful for their support and for allowing up to have such a huge platform to advertise this event. You may remember me blogging about this LAST YEAR.

A Before & After & Why I Love my New Fireplace

  • Wedding Wednesday

we moved in I knew I wanted to do this. It was one of those projects that really wasn’t NECESSARY… but OHHH if we could make it happen, it would transform the living room! When Michael and I got married, we bought a little cape cod in the west end of Richmond and we adore it. When I picture a “first home” type of house… this is exactly what comes to mind. No closet space, hitting shoulders when we’re both trying to brush our teeth in our tiny little bathroom, and a cozy little living room. We love it. It’s so perfect for us right now and despite the fact that we’ve been running out of storage space since before we moved in,

My Little Brother isn't so Little Anymore

  • Meet Corey

is a strange post to write. This is senior session… but it’s not any senior… it’s my little brother. Corey is 6 years younger than me and I say he’s my “little” brother but that title really doesn’t fit anymore.  He’s taller than me and we realized several months ago that I have to start hugging him differently. I used to put my arm around his shoulder… now his shoulders are way too tall for that. He’s all grown up! If you’ve followed the blog for a while, you’ve heard all about Corey.  You’ve heard about his golfing, his dream of becoming a pilot , his first solo flight and how he serves other people like no other 17 year old I’ve ever met.
