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...

Old Richmond Train Station Engagement

  • Jordan + Katy | Engaged | Part 1

marks made my day. Katy emailed me a few weeks ago, exclaiming that she was getting MARRIED! Her excitement made me smile and her over-use of exclamation marks was the perfect sign that she was supposed to be one of my brides!!! I love this girl! Both Katy and Jordan graduated from CNU and though we weren’t super close during college, I remember seeing Katy on campus and thinking “that girl is always SO happy!!”.  It’s no wonder she ended up moving to Florida to work for Disney!! She’s so full of Joy and I can only imagine how much fun she will be on her wedding day! CANNOT WAIT!

Justin & Mary WPPI Shootout

  • Jeremy + Ashley

that they were having a contest and I immediately wanted to make my blog post and join in… but I was sick…. and a video blog post would have been so embarrassing at the time because when I talked, I sounded like a man. So my sweet husband got in front of the camera and made my video for me. He’s wonderful. I was selected to be a part of J&M’s WPPI shootout and I have to give all of the credit to Michael. So last Tuesday morning at the crack of dawn… I got up and thought “Only for Justin and Mary would I be up at 6am and getting in the shower”… 6am is WAY too early for me. I don’t function well in the mornings

Plus a Few!

  • VA Photographers at WPPI

overwhelming. It just is. Even if you’re a people person… it’s a LOT! I’m definitely an extrovert…. I would talk to a TREE…. but at the end of the day at WPPI, I am SO ready to just lay in bed with my laptop and look at blogs (such a photographer….that’s what we do for “fun”).  At WPPI it can be hard to find specific people and I knew that if we didn’t have some type of meetup, the VA photographers would never find each other! There are some some VA photogs that I literally NEVER saw but I knew they were there (the MGM Grand is GINORMOUS!)! So Wednesday night we had a VA Photog WPPI dinner date at the Venetian!
