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...

Introducing Graham Warren Alsop

  • His Birth Story

I have to say, it feels like I was JUST sitting down to write out a birth story.  So much about our life has changed in just one year. I don’t think I have fully wrapped my mind around it all. Just eight days after I gave birth to baby Graham, we celebrated what would have been Baby James’ first birthday. We remembered him and celebrated his life while holding a brand new life, and I just can’t get over that. It’s the greatest blessing, and such a beautiful and redemptive part of our story. 


It’s a new month and we JUST released a brand new episode of KJ ALL ACCESS!! This month our members are getting to watch me photograph a classic southern wedding! As I was editing through the footage from this month’s episode, something that stood out to me was the invitation styling process. If there is one part of shooting details that I consider the most challenging, it would be the invitation suite.

Happy 1st Birthday Baby James

  • Celebrating Our Baby in Heaven

It’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since we met our sweet Baby James and also said goodbye to him. So much has happened and so much has changed. I gave birth to our third baby just 8 days ago and life is very full. Full of diapers, full of emotions and full of gratefulness. If you had told me on this day last year that I would be holding an 8 day old, healthy baby boy one year later, I wouldn’t have been able to believe it. But here we are, celebrating our sweet baby in heaven while holding a new baby boy in our arms.
