When Michael and I were saying our vows almost 6 years ago, these two were saying their’s too!! Weeks ago we announced that we wanted to add an additional section to our KJ Posing Course (Launching at the end of this month!!! AHHHH!!!) and our team selected Mark and Lianne as our models! We needed to work with a couple who had NEVER been in front of my camera AND who we had never even MET! Mark and Lianne were the perfect fit!
Not only do they share our anniversary but they also just had their first child this past year and so I went ahead and told them that I was pregnant during their shoot! It was a HOT day and so I had to drink a lot of water and Gatorade and I wanted them to know why!! We loved chatting with them about their life and their sweet little girl! Their session was everything I hoped that it would be and the light was AMAZING!!! We took these portraits on our future STREET! These are our future neighbor’s willow trees and I’m so thankful that I’ll be able to have built in portrait locations PERMANENTLY!! How fun!!
We just loved getting to know these two and I am so excited for you to see some of my FAVORITES!!! Ps. For those of you who will be joining us in the KJ Posing Course, you’ll be able to watch and hear me direct these two throughout the entire shoot!!!
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.
