EDUCATION

Arrow KJ

There is only one thing in our business that we love more than photographing weddings and that’s teaching others how to photograph weddings!

Being our own boss, creating this business from the ground up, and having the freedom to live the life we want is something that anyone can have, but few will actually make it happen for themselves. Our goal for KJ Education is to take our experience, our knowledge and passion for this job and share it with as many photographers as possible! Our hope is that through our workshops, online courses, templates, and free education, they too can experience the life-changing results of running a profitable business that they love!

KJ BRidal guide

 What if brides planned their day around their photography?

I wanted to send something pretty AND educational to my brides immediately after they booked with me! I wanted them to immediately see the value of what they invested in, and so I started designing a Bridal Guide for my brides! I designed this for my BRIDES…but little did I know that this project would be SAVING ME TIME! This 76 page Bridal Guide is full of so much bridal education that my brides don’t send me lengthy emails with wedding day questions anymore!! We hit a GOLD MINE with this magazine, and we have decided to not only allow other photographers to have access to the DESIGN, but also to ALL OF OUR CONTENT!
