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...

Wandering through WACO

  • Our Texas Adventure

You may think “Does this girl ever WORK?!”. Yes. Yes I do. I work quite a bit actually… probably too much. However, we have been blessed with some adventurous best friends who share a love for travel AND our same schedule!! Neither of us have kids and so we’re taking advantage of this very free season of our life. Like millions of other people on the planet, we love the show “Fixer Upper” on HGTV! Whoever made the final call to choose Chip and Jojo and create this series was a genius! Ever since they announced Magnolia Market was expanding at the Silos, I wanted to go visit!!!

Portable iPhone Chargers, JoJo Candles & More!

  • Good Things

Have you ever pulled out your phone while you’re out and about and RIGHT before you take a picture, it DIES?! Or maybe you’re taking a video and you have 13% battery left and then it dies and doesn’t even SAVE what you were filming?! It’s just the worst! My phone’s battery life is HORRIBLE. Even after closing all of my apps, my battery doesn’t last and even though this is definitely a first world problem, it’s still a problem.

The Non-Strapless Wedding Dress

  • Wedding Wednesday

It was almost 7 years ago when I was newly engaged and searching for a wedding dress of my own! I tried on ONE dress and bought it that day! ONE!! That was my first mistake! Why didn’t I try on more than one just for FUN?! I was weird I guess! That’s a post for another time. What I want to focus on today are OPTIONS. When I was thinking about this post I worried that my words would come across wrong and so I have a few disclaimers I would love to share before I continue!
