there’s a baby in a carriage… or something like that. This is really a stretch for WEDDING WEDNESDAY. It’s not really wedding related at ALL. However, here is how I’m justifying it in my head… it’s a baby shower, with cute DIY details that could be inspiration for wedding details… and it was for a PAST bride. So technically…. it’s wedding related. Anyway, why am I trying to justify this? It’s my blog, I’ll post what I want! There. So Wedding Wednesday is a Baby Shower post and for all of you out there that are really type A… this is probably going to cause a twitch.
My college roommate Steph and I hosted a shower for our other roommate Emily this past weekend. Steph hates it when I say this but really, it’s true…all I did was clean the house and arrange the table. All the cute DIY stuff was mostly her doing and she needs to just take credit for it! Our theme was “Cute as a Button” and guess where we found our detail ideas… on PINTEREST… of course. That website wins the award for Biggest Distraction from Productivitiy in my life.
So you may remember Em… she’s beautiful, she got married last August and she’s known for being the bride in cowboy boots! Seth and Emily had Michael and I stop by their house one day this past winter and they told us the news… they were PREGNANT! Oh. My. Gosh. I think I screamed and then asked a bazillion questions because I was just so excited. Are you going to find out the gender? How far along are you? How do you feel?! What the NAME choices?! I was so obnoxious! I couldn’t have been happier for them. I’m so thankful to have a roommate that is going through this before me. As Emily opened gifts, I sat there amazed at how much stuff I didn’t know. How many mattress pads does one crib need?!
We all knew Em would be the first one to have a baby. This is her dream. My dream right now is owning my own business and being free to be creative… her dream has always been to be a mom, we’re polar opposites and I love it. I love watching Seth and Em start their family and I can’t wait to meet with little boy or girl! The gender is still unknown for Baby Bax but for some reason.. we’re all convinced it’s a BOY!:) Enjoy seeing a little peek of the shower! Steph made this adorable banner!!
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.
