house to yours… MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I’m so BEYOND thankful for all of you that check this crazy blog. This blog started as a little place for me to post my work… and it’s turned into the HEARTBEAT of my business. I’m so blessed that people even care to come back to it day after day! That really blows my mind!! Most days I like to think that just my mom and sister check the blog because it’s less intimidating that way!! However, google analytics would suggest otherwise. My mother would actually appreciate it if I were to feel more intimidated about my blogging because
I’m not the best spell checker in the world. So, I am publicly apologizing for my grammatical/spelling errors that have graced the pages of this blog in 2012. I will make it a goal in 2013 to work on that…. for my mother’s sake! I hope EVERYONE has an amazing holiday season!! Hug those loved ones tight, put the smart phones away and enjoy your time together over the next few days!! I’ll actually be taking a blogging hiatus…for ONE day. There will not be a post on Christmas Day. GASP. I preach consistency but I think one day off will be just fine. The world will not come to an end if I skip a post. So MERRY CHRISTMAS blog readers!!! I don’t know all of you… but I sure do appreciate all of you!! THANK YOU for making my business what it is today!!!!
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.
