Well it’s always fun to shoot a wedding when you know some of the guests, but it’s REALLY fun when your sister is the Matron of Honor and is a part of the bridal party! We absolutely loved being a part of Hunter and Britne’s beautiful fall wedding. It was a perfect 70 degrees and the sunshine poured into the windows of the gorgeous old barn that they were married in. It was a dream wedding day from beginning to end. I loved being a part of this day not only because I knew the couple personally but because I remember hearing Britne talking and dreaming about her future husband all the way back during her time at Virginia Tech when she was living with Emy!
God blessed Britne with an amazing man who loves the Lord, loves her and treats her like a queen. One by one their friends stood up and toasted to the newlyweds. EVERY SINGLE TOAST included something about Hunter’s character and how their relationship was such a beautiful picture of the Gospel. At my sister’s wedding I mentioned in my toast that I had prayed for her to have amazing friends at college who would one day be standing at her wedding beside her… I never expected that I would have the opportunity to be a part of her roommate’s wedding in such a special way too! God is good. And so faithful!
It was such an honor to capture Hunter and Britne’s love. AND I may be a little biased but I think Britne’s veil was gorgeous…. because it was MINE and my sister’s! She wore our veil as her something borrowed! :) I can’t wait for you to see this gorgeous day! The red lips, the fall colors, the crazy high rafters in the barn… it was all so photogenic!!! Enjoy the visual story of their day!!
Looking sharp Hunter!
Oh Britne…. you are stunning! Just gorgeous!
You know I love this!
They shared the sweetest first look…. my favorite part was hearing Hunter pray and thank God for this time together. It’s such a quiet and intimate part of the day!!
Ahhh!!! So gorgeous!
Love this! One of my favorite bridesmaids shots of the year!!
Can we all just agree that we’re glad Britne wore red lipstick?! Love the pop!!
A popcorn bar for cocktail hour!!
If you can’t tell, I loved the first dance! This barn was a blast to shoot inside of!
We caught the “glow” just in time!!!
YES!!!! This wasn’t easy! But so worth it!
The power of a few flashes!

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!
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!
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.
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.
