Michael and I fell in love with these two from the moment we met them at their engagement session!! It was kind of like a tease, because we had the best time with them and then we didn’t get to see them for almost a year! It was so sweet to reunite with Nick and Katherine on their beautiful wedding day! Their day was nothing short of perfection. From the details, to the vendors, to the weather and their bridal party, it was a dream!! And we loved working alongside some of our best friends in the industry!
Kat and Matt of Dear Sweetheart Events made the day run so smoothly, while Tyler and Ashley Herrinton captured the day on video!! As I’m typing this, I’m thinking back on the whole day and I have to say that my favorite moments were between Nick, Katherine and her dad. Katherine shared a first look with her dad and there were tears. However, my absolute favorite part was right after their daddy/daughter first look when he called Katherine’s mom over so that they could all three pray together. Through tears, he thanked the Lord for the mountaintops and the valleys…. and exclaimed that this was definitely a mountaintop. Throughout the day you could just feel his pride and also the emotion of giving his daughter away. He fist pumped Nick at the end of the aisle and toasted the newlyweds with beautiful words of encouragement!!!
These two have waited so long for their big day and it was finally here! Their dusty rose and pastel color tones made the entire day so romantic, and the mo-town music created a classic feel throughout the entire reception!! It is such an honor to not only call Nick and Katherine friends but to be the ones who captured one of the most special days of their life! What a gift!!! I love my job and I love this sweet couple! Congratulations to the newlyweds! We are so excited for you!! I hope you’re loving life as newlyweds and relaxing in Grand Cayman this week without a care in the world!!!
Be sure to check out this sneak peak from the Herrintons!
When I took that image on the right, it literally looked like I was taking a close up of two closed doors! I’m pretty sure the venue staff walking past were talking about me! :)
Can we just agree that these details are gorgeous! Thank you Kat for the floral accents!!
One of my all time favorite groom-prep shots from Michael! This is Nick helping his dad!
The sweetest moment!
Dad is crying…. Nick is crying… Katherine girl, you are so loved!

If you have ever thought: “What would KJ Do?!” or “I wish KJ could just edit these for me!”
Have you ever wanted to stand behind me while I’m shooting?!
In today’s Youtube video I am sharing one of the BEST parts of the R6 or any mirrorless camera!
Today’s Youtube video has probably been my most requested video ever..
I woke up on this wedding day to the sound of rain hitting our bedroom window and I was ready for the challenge. Rainy wedding days pull out something in me that other wedding days don’t.
This wedding is what I love to call a “Legacy KJ wedding”! They are my favorite type of weddings these days and I have another one coming up next weekend as well!
