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...

Tom + Meagan | Engaged

  • Catholic University of America Engagement Session

Every session has something that is unique about it! This session was going GREAT until a security guard told us that you can’t shoot around the largest Catholic Church in America! Luckily, we had already gotten all of our must-have shots done and we were on a roll! Tom and Meagan picked up on the poses quickly and that meant that we got a lot accomplished before we were told that professional photography wasn’t allowed! It worked out perfectly. We casually crossed the street and used some pretty locations around the Basilica!

Gino + Jen | Engaged

  • University of Richmond Engagement Portraits

Engagement season is HERE!! We have three engagement sessions in four days! The first of this round of sessions was for Gino and Jen! They live up in NY and so since they were down doing some wedding planning, we decided to sneak in their engagement session as well! We met at 6:30am…. yes… 6:30. It was early but as the sun started to rise, I remembered why I love sunrise sessions so much. There is something different about the morning sunlight!

Carter + Steph | Engaged

  • A Quirk Hotel + Richmond Pipeline Engagement

I’ve been so excited for this session and it’s not because these two are cute and it’s not because of Steph’s style…even though those are both great reasons to get excited for a shoot! I have been looking forward to this shoot because Steph is such a dear friend of mine and I am so excited for her!! We were college roomies and I have always looked forward to the day when I would get the call that she had found “the one”. I remember it perfectly… I was pulling out of the Willow Lawn Shopping center and my phone was buzzing. I saw it was Steph and I had a funny feeling that it was an important call.
