Lance + Colleen

A Classic Farmington Wedding | Charlottesville Venue

filed in:

When the bride asks your opinion about which venue would be best for pictures…. you pick your jaw off of the floor and start doing your research! What a DREAM! Colleen has been a dream KJ bride from the VERY beginning. Her emails have exclamation points for days and her smile is contagious! I knew from her very first email that this was a match made in heaven and I was right. Even on one of the hottest days of the year, we managed to capture so many stunning portraits outdoors. Lance and Colleen were willing to do anything if it meant more pictures!!

I don’t blame them… I mean, more portraits mean more memories and now that the wedding is over, my pictures are all that they have… besides each other! :) These two are probably relaxing by the pool on a tiny island outside of Nassau right now! They deserve a vacation. Planning a wedding is hard work and Colleen did an amazing job!! She re-united the DREAM TEAM!! Seriously, if I could work with Richard Green, Anna Burke and The Herrinton’s every weekend, I would be on cloud nine! It makes the day so much fun when you can laugh and have a good time with the other vendors!!

Throughout the day, we always see how the couple’s story and their family dynamic plays out. The more we heard about Lance and Colleen, the more we learned about how much their family means to them. I think this is probably why getting MARRIED meant so much to them! They are both blessed with amazing parents that have been married for decades and are still so in love. No wonder Colleen bawled at least once every hour! :) This day meant so much to them and I think that’s because they adore their families and they recognized that this day represented the two of them beginning their own legacy like what they have seen from their parents! Do you see now why I love these two?! It was SUCH an honor to be a part of this day and I can’t WAIT to share it with you!

Enjoy our 10th wedding of 2015!!! Farmington Country Club was stunning and I have to admit.. I have been waiting to shoot in that Jefferson room for a LONG time! :)

Samantha + Evan Private Estate, Backyard Wedding

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!

KJ Student Spotlight October 2020

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!

Jesse + Hope | Engaged A Fan District Engagement Shoot

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.

Jonathan+Melanie Grand Ivory Wedding

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.
