drove down to Richmond and met me at a country club for their engagement pictures. I pulled up and the rain continued to pour so I jumped into their car to get to know them and chat while I prayed for clear skies!! We talked about everything from their love for the culinary arts to their careers to their wedding timeline….. we talked about it all!! As we chatted, the rain just continued and so we decided to reschedule. At first, I was disappointed and I felt bad that so much of their time was wasted due to this random rain storm that lasted all evening. However, I then
realized just how awesome it was to have a chance to be around these two! You know you’re working with GREAT people when it’s pouring and they still have great attitudes about the situation. I felt like I really had a rare chance to get comfortable with a couple I had never met before. All that being said, we met up this past Friday for their rescheduled e-shoot and it felt like we were meeting up with old friends!! So awesome!!
There wasn’t a cloud in the sky on Friday and I absolutely loved shooting around Georgetown with this sweet couple! Besides some bug bites here and there, we had a seamless shoot and I couldn’t be more excited to introduce you all to Aaron and Melissa!! Enjoy some of my favorites and Aaron and Melissa, I can’t WAIT for your wedding day!!!!!!Loved this random little nook of reflective light! Beautiful!! Love these two!! Favorite! Look at that sun creeping in! Love this golden light!
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.
