arrived for their engagement shoot and some of the first few words out of their mouths were “We’ve been waiting for this for SO LONG!”!!! Needless to say, I adored them from the very beginning! Ryan and Sarah are the best couple! Sarah has the SWEETEST smile and cutest laugh! And Ryan looks at Sarah like she’s the only girl in the world… they are a a dream to photograph! Their modeling skills combined with the rich colors and changing leaves in Richmond made for an incredible engagement shoot on Monument Avenue this week!!
Ryan emailed me YEARS ago and shared that one day, he would be engaged to the love of his life. Well, that day has come!! These two are getting married next year and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!!! If their wedding day is as awesome as their engagement session, I’m going to need to buy more memory cards! :) Everything about their engagement shoot was so beautiful and I’ve been so excited to share these ever since we shot them on Monday! Enjoy this classic fall session in the historic heart of Richmond!!Oh the leaves!!!! October is the BEST month of the year!!! Seriously you two?! So perfect!! Love this one!! I love these colors!!
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.
