Bokeh is spoiled. We’ve known that for a long time. I mean, he’s been living the LIFE for the past 4 years. He’s the only dog we have and we don’t have kids. So, naturally, he’s a bit spoiled and thinks that he rules the world! We call it his Napoleon complex. He thinks he’s mightier and tougher than all other dogs…. and he’s only 13.8 pounds. If he hits the 14 pound mark, he’s considered obese and so we’re working on not dropping people-food from the counter “on accident”!
Booked unfortunately showed his DIVA-like qualities this past week when he met his cousin SHUBA for the first time! They did GREAT when they were preoccupied with toys and playing with us…. but when we all calmed down, it was like Bokeh had time to think about what was happening. I can only imagine what was going through his mind….
– I’m being replaced
– This dog is so clumsy
– Why are they oohing and aaahhing over him?
– Is he going to LIVE HERE?
– That’s MY toy!
– I used to be the cutest one!
– I don’t like him! Grrrrr…..
Bokeh had a few embarrassing moments during their time together but eventually, they started to play nice. The problem is, SHUBA is AWKWARD right now!! He’s growing SO fast that his brain can’t keep up with his LEGS and so he is constantly out of control of his limbs! The worst Bokeh/Shuba interaction was when Shuba was trying to “play” and his massive puppy paw swiped Bokeh across the jaw. That didn’t end well. However, by the end of the night… they were tolerating each other…. or should I say BOKEH was tolerating Shuba! Bokeh has a long way to go with his manners but he’s getting there! He LOVES Molly (his sister that belongs to Michael’s mom, dad and sister!) and so it just takes time. The funny thing is, Shuba is going to be 3x the size next time we see him!!! So lets just hope Bokeh is prepared for that. haha
The other thing we quickly realized is that Shuba hasn’t learned how to be photogenic quite yet! He’s only 10 weeks old and so we have some training to do! These are the BEST shots we could get!!!!
This was our “Lets see if Emy can hold them both and I’ll crop her out” attempt! Bahahahaha! What a fail!!
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.
