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...

Doug + Katelyn | Engaged

  • Countryside Engagement Session | Eastern Maryland

I remember getting her email and thinking “Hey! We spell our name the same way!!”. We had seen each other and chatted at a conference prior to her email and I just loved Katelyn’s sweet smile and fun personality. I hear the words “I’m going to email you once I get a ring!” ALL of the time and it happens about 10% of the time because of budget but Katelyn was committed and SO excited. I knew as soon as I received her email that she was going to be the most perfect KJ Bride! She loves photography (she’s an amazing photographer herself!) and she loves Doug with all of her heart. That’s the perfect combo and we couldn’t wait for their shoot!!

  • A Classic Colonial Williamsburg Engagement Shoot

You’re not going to believe this, but we actually thought this shoot wasn’t going to happen because of weather! We had checked the radar on the way down to Williamsburg and everything looked clear…. but then all of a sudden it started to pour, and our phones dinged with a severe weather warning. It came out of nowhere!! We were hopeful that the storm would pass in time but the radar didn’t look very promising. We were sitting in the parking lot while it poured and then miraculously, right at 6pm, the rain stopped, the clouds cleared, and the sun started glowing through the trees!! It was amazing!!
