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...


HALF A YEAR! It’s been half a year since I was in labor and wondering what this little girl was going to be like!!! I feel like this is the month where she has truly started to showcase her personality for us! She is not a chill, quiet baby who just makes little tiny baby noises. She’s LOUD! She’s got quite a set of vocal chords on her, and somedays we can’t help but laugh at her shrieks that can be heard throughout the entire house!! She’s so much fun, and even though we’re going on a month and a 1/2 in her Pavlik Harness to correct her hip dysplasia, she is still a happy little girl!

The Workshop Experience

  • August 2017 | Behind the Scenes

It’s hard to believe that we have only ONE more workshop left in 2017!! 3 down and 1 to go! I’m not trying to toot my own horn, but I’m proud of our KJP team! Between Me, Michael, Emy and Momma, life has changed drastically in 2017. We moved, had surgeries, had babies and have ventured into new areas of business. It would have been very easy to say “Ya know… lets put off workshops until 2018 after we have some more time to get used to this new season”. But we didn’t! We moved forward full force in April and haven’t slowed down since!

Speaking | Creative at Heart

  • Round 7 | Raleigh, North Carolina | Merrimom Wynne House

This past month has kind of been a blur in a lot of ways. We left for Scotland three days after Evy got her harness (that we can’t take off!). When we came back to the states and had a week of family vacation with our family friends at the lake. I spoke at The School of Styling that week and then we left and drove down to Raleigh, NC so that we could be a part of the Creative at Heart Conference!!! This was round 7 and we feel SO incredibly honored to have been a part of EACH ONE! I know that I shouldn’t pick favorites…. but I know that I’m not alone when I say that this one was probably the BEST one YET!!! It was awesome in EVERY WAY possible!
