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...

The Jazz Nativity | Gayton Baptist Church

  • A Night of Jazz! Last Call!

As I walked into the church, snow flurries were falling from the sky…. what a perfect way to start the night! JAZZ NATIVITY happened tonight and do not fear! If you missed it, you can come TOMORROW! Tickets are still on sale and let me tellll you! …. it will be the best $5 you spend all season! I’m talking better than any stocking stuffer, any movie ticket, and any hot Starbucks drink! It’s that awesome. (Ps. If you find a movie ticket for $5, let me know!)  However, if you come and are craving a cup of Starbucks, they are sponsoring the event and are selling coffee and sweet treats throughout the whole event! Jazz Nativity is a Jazz concert in a coffee house type setting at Gayton Baptist Church (our church!!).

Homemade Soft Pretzels

  • Michael the Baker

I’m not sure if that is the correct way to spell that made-up word or not… but that is what he is. Michael, my husband, is not one to sit around passively and do nothing around the house. Now I will say that he can take naps…..long naps, anytime of day and I don’t think he will ever out grow that.  However, besides his naptime, he is normally getting something done around the house… especially in the kitchen. A lot of women have asked me.. “have you cooked a lot?!”… and my answer has to be “well, no, not really…. Michael likes to cook”.  And this is true. I HELP him cook but I have really only made ONE dinner totally by myself and I had to tell him to leave me

Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia Photographer

  • Robbie + Nicole | Engaged

for a treat! Yup! right here on the blog. You’re going to love this couple and you’re going to love them 10x more when you see their classy 2nd outfit.  Robbie loves to dress up and Nicole had a fabulous pair of heels that had never been worn. This all worked in my favor. We had an amazing time in Colonial Williamsburg last week.  It was a tad chilly but we made it just in time to catch some leaves before they were gone for good. Winter kinda becomes depressing for photographers.  Not much sun, not terrific light, not many colors… so I was happy to have one last session with color that POPS!
