I’m starting to notice a pattern. Every time I show up at Yorktown for an engagement session, it ends up that the couples are from CNU and I totally recognize them from campus! I just never make those connections through email! I totally recognized SaraLynn and she then introduced me to her fiance Daniel. I knew it would be a fun session when the first place we started shooting, they couldn’t stop laughing! I reassured them that they were doing EXACTLY what I needed them to do in order to capture genuine images. Being able to laugh at each other is key… even if it’s making fun of one another, I don’t care! It works and it shows personality like nothing else! So Daniel and SaraLynn, thanks for laughing and being an AWESOME couple to work with! You’re fabulous and I just know your wedding is going to be fabulous as well! Goodluck and Best wishes!
Ps. I recently discovered, thanks to JasmineStar, a HUGE blogging time saver. *Photographers if you are an avid blogger and have a problem blogging too many images like I do.. you NEED BlogStomp! Check it out! But beware, it could be very dangerous. I’m saving so much time I could easily blog 100 images each post!
Oh gosh I just love this! I really have nothing against their faces, I just think there is something about this one that makes it look old and rustic and I like it!
This is a fav.
No idea who’s car that is…but it was awfully nice of them to let us use it! We didn’t touch it! promise.
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.
