Remember that time when we realized that we had a few friends in Australia and we decided to host a workshop!? And we did a shoot on the dunes of Adelaide?! Oh it was a dream!! You’re going to love this shoot and I still can’t believe how amazing this shoot turned out! It’s normally hard to plan a shoot on the other side of the world but not in this case. We had the most amazing group of vendors and we were blown away by their talent and support!!
We miss our sweet friends in Australia and the exciting thing is that we’re COMING BACK!!! Ah!!!! We’re coming back to Australia in January 2016 and we cannot WAIT! The CREATIVE @ HEART conference is coming to Sydney and Brisbane in January 2016 and we’re so honored to be a part of this!! We’ve had a few questions about whether or not we’ll be hosting another workshop either in Sydney, Brisbane or New Zealand and we’re just going to be honest and say “If they ask, we will come!”. If we have some interest, we’ll most definitely work hard to try to make it happen!! WE MAY NEVER come back to Australia… I’m serious! At least not for a long time…. we’re not having kids right now…. but we can’t stay on the 5 year plan forever! (cue the baby comments) haha So this may be our last Australia adventure for a little while and we’re excited to make the most of it!!!!
Enjoy this beautiful seaside shoot from our workshop and a BIG thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring it!! You can view the feature HERE!

This session is beautiful… if I do say so myself! It’s colorful, it’s vibrant, it’s full of joy and it’s also LONG! It’s a lengthy post because I just had so many favorites and I absolutely loved my time with these two last week! Paige, like a lot of our brides, is a photographer herself! She’s talented, full of life, energetic and creative. I felt the pressure to take this location that she knows well and make it look fresh and knew to her!! Nikhil is an audio engineer for Apple (which we think is fascinating!) and despite hardly ever wearing a suit, he wore one for Paige and made all of her outfit dreams come true!
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.
