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...

Oh the things I talk myself into!

  • Illusions

..that by age 22, I would realize that eating a glass full of Oat Squares (BEST CEREAL KNOWN TO MAN!) and drinking a full glass of milk is the same as eating a bowl of cereal!!!  The thing is, a BOWL of cereal sounds like a meal to me and so when I’m editing and I want something to munch on… I choose to eat cereal this way.  Why? Well, because I’ve convinced myself that if cereal isn’t in a bowl… it’s JUST a snack, not a meal and the calories are going to be much less! What an illusion!! I swear I can talk myself into anything!!! …. and I would believe it!

Richmond Wedding Photographer

  • Whit + Sydni | Engaged

… our location, that is.  Sydni and I had talked about shooting further up Grace street in downtown Richmond but as soon as I saw these old walls and buildings, I asked if we could shoot there instead. Whit and Sydni agreed and didn’t think twice (because they’re wonderful!).  I will admit that the location wasn’t the prettiest, or the cleanest, or really safest but it sure was COOL! I LOVED it! The dirty, grungy, urban feel makes for some pretty sweet portraits! Whit and Sydni were so great.  They trusted my judgment, even when it seemed weird and I must say that they were pretty darn good at the “model” face!
