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...

Graham’s Sixth Month

Half a year…. can you believe it? It feels like we were just bringing Baby Graham through the front door and Evy was trying to hold him constantly. We spent 6 months telling her no and now, she’s finally at a place where she can be left with him on the couch beside her and we’re not completely terrified of what she’ll try to do. He’s a big boy and she’s a strong girl. I feel like this month has given us glimpses into their relationship that will exist in the future. She runs up to him and he squeals. It’s my favorite new part of his personality!

Evan + Samantha | Engaged

  • Fall Farm Engagement Shoot | Goochland Wedding Photographer

This is a special shoot!! It’s near and dear to my heart  because you’re about to meet my Brother-in-law’s baby sister and her fiance’!!! When Joe and Emy (my sister) got engaged back in 2013, one of my favorite memories was traveling through the night and surprising Emy the next morning at Joe’s parents house! This was when I really got to meet so much of his family and of course, we loved them. Joe is one of six kids in the Malizia family and the baby of the family is Samantha! 

Trevor + Alyssa | Engaged

  • Historic Richmond Neighborhood Engagement Photos

This past week I met up with new friends that seemed like we knew them forever! Trevor and Alyssa came in from Michigan for their engagement session and it was just the most perfect day for a shoot! The trees still had leaves, the temperature wasn’t too hot or too cold, the light was gorgeous and the setting was so colorful! The reason these two seemed like friends who we had known forever was because Trevor is Tyler Herrinton’s brother!! If you know our good friend Tyler, you’ll be able to see the resemblance immediately!
