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...

Behind the Scenes 2015

  • Our Real Life

This is my favorite post of the year. Hands down! I laughed so hard I almost cried. These pictures are so unflattering in so many ways but because I love you guys, I’m going to forget how embarrassing they are and show them anyway! This year we photographed 31 weddings and we have one on New Years Eve and so I’m going to count that as a 2016 wedding!! This year has been amazing and as I look back through these BTS images, I laughed but I was also overcome with thankfulness.

The Simple Christmas

  • Why We Didn't Decorate This Year

I love decorating. It’s like my favorite thing to do outside of photography but even sometimes I get tired of photography! I mean, I take A LOT of pictures these days!! :) Since I have a deep love for decorating, Christmas decor is non-negotiable! Well, that is until this year that is. I have every teal ornament known to man. Our Christmas Tree is usually decorated with a Peacock theme and it’s full of decor from our wedding. Our mantle is usually full of our stockings and our kitchen table is normally so full of glittery goodness that you can’t even eat at it!

A Different Kind of Speaking Event

  • Delight Retreat for Newly Engaged & Newlywed Women

We have REALLY exciting news!! We have had some amazing opportunities to speak over the course of the last 3 years but this is unlike anything we have ever done before. I have been PRAYING for a chance to pour into marriages and young women and this is such an answered prayer!! I am THRILLED to announce that we’re going to be a part of our very first DELIGHT Retreat!!! Ah!! All the way in the mountains of WASHINGTON!!
