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...

Downtown Charleston Engagement Shoot

  • Harrison + Rachel | Engaged

emailed me about the possibility of shooting their engagement session in Charleston and I think I probably responded with an immediate “YES!”. Charleston?! I love that place!! It’s one of my all time favorite cities to shoot in and I was ready to make another trip down south! I have shot in Charleston a couple other times and I have always driven down. It was about 8 hours from Richmond and so Michael and I decided to make a road trip out of it. I worked super hard on emails and office related things while we drove down so that once we arrived, I didn’t have to look at my laptop until the drive home!

Registration is LIVE

  • Fall 2013 Workshop

today blow me away. There are no words to express how thankful and I excited I am to be hosting our new style of workshops in our new home! And realizing that a lot of other photographers are excited as well is just icing on the cake! The workshop registration went live at 9:30 this morning to all of my newsletter friends and we are sold out. I’m so pumped to share two days with these 12 photographers in our home, talking about all things photo and business!! Because of the interest, we’ll **hopefully** be hosting another Workshop in November

A Washington DC Waterfront Wedding

  • Kevin + Maris

July here and we’re definitely feeling it in Virginia. The humidity is high and the temperatures are even higher! Michael and I have 3 weddings this month and I’m so SO thankful that our three couples for the hottest month of the year are easy going and 100% on board with taking portraits outside…. even if it’s 100 degrees! Kevin and Maris and their entire bridal party are amazing. It was hot and sticky and they still had great attitudes when it came time for their portraits! After shooting Kevin and Maris’s engagement session, I knew that they would be fun to work with on their wedding day and I was right! They’re such a sweet couple with a super fun group of friends that surrounded them on their wedding day. As toasts were shared at the reception, it was obvious that Kevin and Maris are well loved by their friends and family. Family came from all over the country to celebrate with these two!
