HEADSHOT 1-8478

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...

Graham’s Seventh Month

This is the month that Graham decided that he wasn’t happy to just be sitting. It was frustrating to him watch Harper move and crawl and get wherever she wanted to go. He would sit and flap his arms up and down as hard as he could almost as if he was trying to fly. Poo guy! It’s tough being the youngest out of the whole crew! Graham’s 7th month included a big trip out to Arizona. His Aunt Emy went with us because this conference is where we get to see so many of our students and I need to be as present as possible while we’re there. It was such a gift to have Emy there! I didn’t document that trip on my DSLR but I did make sure that there are plenty of iPhone memories in the family Chatbooks!

Graham’s Sixth Month

Half a year…. can you believe it? It feels like we were just bringing Baby Graham through the front door and Evy was trying to hold him constantly. We spent 6 months telling her no and now, she’s finally at a place where she can be left with him on the couch beside her and we’re not completely terrified of what she’ll try to do. He’s a big boy and she’s a strong girl. I feel like this month has given us glimpses into their relationship that will exist in the future. She runs up to him and he squeals. It’s my favorite new part of his personality!

  • Fall Farm Engagement Shoot | Goochland Wedding Photographer

This is a special shoot!! It’s near and dear to my heart  because you’re about to meet my Brother-in-law’s baby sister and her fiance’!!! When Joe and Emy (my sister) got engaged back in 2013, one of my favorite memories was traveling through the night and surprising Emy the next morning at Joe’s parents house! This was when I really got to meet so much of his family and of course, we loved them. Joe is one of six kids in the Malizia family and the baby of the family is Samantha!
