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...


  • Speaking Recap | Champaign, Illinois

What a whirlwind of a weekend! Michael and I flew out Saturday evening and after meeting up with our dear friends Zach, Jody and Jaxon, we boarded our connecting flight to Champaign, Illinois! We were headed to the Reset Conference! This was my first time attending and speaking at Reset but from the moment we met Kellie and Rebekah, we were in love. These two had a dream and they made it happen.

Brent + Sara | Engaged

  • Travel Inspired Engagement Pictures | Richmond, Virginia

These two just booked a few weeks ago and I loved getting to put faces with names to quickly! Their love love started in the most unassuming way. Brent had flown in for a business class and Sara just happened to one of the few girls in the class as well. Being so outnumbered, she didn’t notice him but he noticed her. Eventually Sara picked up the social cues and the connection was obvious. The rest is history! Brent and Sara are getting married this year at The Mill at Fine Creek and we are so excited to be a part of their big day!

Prepping for 2015

  • Good Things | I Need Some Advice!

Michael and I are enjoying a nice break from weddings right now. We love waking up on Saturdays and not rushing to a wedding! It’s awesome! We feel like NORMAL people! …. However, I know it won’t be long until I’m ready for some gorgeous weddings to come back into my life! Rest ultimately prepares you for work! Looking forward to our 2015 Wedding season, I have a few things that I know that I need to find. I’m hoping that some of you out there (since a lot of wedding photographers check this blog!) will be able to give us some advice!
