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...

Ty + Gabi | Engaged

Ty and Gabi booked us for their gorgeous 2019 Pippin Hill wedding around the same time that we were finding out about baby James’ diagnosis. They were so incredibly sweet and understanding. Every time we needed to readjust their engagement session date they were so gracious. We are so thankful for such sweet and caring clients during this season of our life. As I emailed back and forth with Gabi I realized that she and Ty have quite a demanding schedule. They are so dedicated to their work, and the best time to get together would be for a sunrise shoot! Michael and I headed up to Olde Town Alexandria and met these two at 6am!

Ira + Shanna |Married

  • A Countryside Anniversary Session

Can you believe that I photographed these two on their wedding day almost exactly TEN YEARS AGO?! This August, Shanna and Ira will have been married for ten years and I will be celebrating a DECADE of running Katelyn James Photography. It’s crazy to think about! I don’t know about you, but I think we need to throw one big KJP Birthday Party!!!! It was several months ago when Shanna asked me who she could book for an anniversary shoot and after realizing that it had been TEN years since their wedding, I gladly told her to come to our property and that I would take their portraits for free!
