We had met Katelyn a month before our wedding (we share the same wedding month!) and we were so grateful to meet another fellow photographer who had such a warm, genuine, and sweet personality. We felt an instant connection with Katelyn and later met her husband, Michael. We frequently meet up with Katelyn + Michael whenever we’re in the Richmond area, it’s so refreshing and encouraging to chat with someone who also knows the wedding industry. We were beyond excited when Katelyn suggested we swap sessions with each other this winter before wedding season started. As most of you know Katelyn isn’t just any photographer – she’s Katelyn James. It is such a wonderful and daunting task to shoot with another great photographer, seeing how they work and how they make the “magic” happen. Additionally, it’s amazing to see how two photographers can be in the same location at the same time, yet take entirely different imagery that represents their own aesthetic and vision.
Katelyn + Michael traveled up to our area for a weekend getaway a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, the rainy weather wasn’t entirely in our favor the day we had scheduled the session, so we waited until the next morning. It’s always a challenge finding beautiful light when you’re shooting mid-day, but we made it work. We are so thankful for the beautiful images Katelyn created for us and we were additionally thankful to shoot her and Michael and their pup, Bokeh!
