Nick + Brianna | Married

A Downtown Richmond Anniversary Shoot

filed in:

One of the greatest joys of my business is that we have made friends with photographers from all over the world. I know friends by name in Australia, London, Hawaii, Germany, etc. It’s awesome! Years ago, I met Brianna through the KJ education world and we have been friends ever since!! I’ve always loved her sweet personality and beautiful smile. She’s so humble with her amazing work and to say she’s a bit talented is an understatement. She did coaching recently and was brainstorming a new brand and it wasn’t long before her dream was a full-fledged realty!

She’s an incredible designer, photographer AND mom of three!! And she’s younger than me!! I’m just so amazed be her! These two have literally lived on every corner of the country over the last 8 years. As we started their shoot, I asked when was the last time they had their portraits taken and they explained that they always had their kids with them in the past. They had a courthouse wedding and so this session was their FIRST SHOOT just the two of them! They deserve this!!!

We stopped by the most gorgeous home on Monument Avenue in Richmond and it was the most AMAZING backdrop for their session! It looks like we hopped over to France or Paris for the evening!! Enjoy my favorites and be sure to check out Brianna’s work HERE!

Samantha + Evan Private Estate, Backyard Wedding

I’m so excited to share this final 2020 Wedding with you all!! It’s a special one! We photographed this beautiful wedding day on our own 10 year anniversary! Ten years ago on this day, we were celebrating in my parent’s backyard under a massive white tent too! This was my brother-in-law’s baby sister’s wedding day and celebrating with the Malizia family was such a treat! They are a family MADE for weddings!

Well, I realize this isn’t normal for KJ! I don’t shoot portraits these days but this session was my first non-wedding shoot with my new Canon R6 and I’m obsessed with how these images turned out! It was the most perfect evening for this early fall shoot and the light was incredible!

KJ Student Spotlight October 2020

I’m so excited to share another addition of Student Spotlights from our KJ Education community! It’s so funny to us, but quite often, we find that our friends who know us in everyday life but aren’t in our industry really have no clue what we do! They think we shoot 10 weddings a year and that’s the extent of our work these days but oh… that couldn’t be further from the truth!

Jesse + Hope | Engaged A Fan District Engagement Shoot

When we first decide if we’re a good fit with our potential KJ Couples, we’re looking for a few things…. one of those things is that this couple keeps joyful! We’ve found over the years that couples what take themselves super seriously aren’t always the best fit for us! We love it when couples let their guard down and allow us to get to know them during their engagement session.

For some photographers, bridal details seem like a fun part of the wedding day… but for many others, it’s stressful. It’s the part of the day that throws them off, makes them wonder if they’re actually artistic and leaves them feeling flustered and panicked because they never get everything done in the time they have allotted for detail shooting. In my opinion, this is a REALLY tough way to start a wedding day.

Jonathan+Melanie Grand Ivory Wedding

Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
