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.
Hope and Jesse are that perfect kind of couple. They are down to earth, easy to talk to, fun to be around and you can just tell that they are so excited to start their new life together!! Not only did we get to know the two of them, but we also spent time with their fur baby, Liddy! Liddy is honestly one of the most well-behaved KJ couple’s dogs we’ve ever worked with and it was so easy including her in their session! Hope’s sister, her brother-in-law and niece joined us as well to take care of Liddy when she wasn’t needed in certain shots and I can’t express how wonderful that was! When there isn’t help with the puppy, Michael ends up being in charge of filming for KJ All Access AND puppy-sitting!!
This shoot was fun and challenging at the same time. The light was a bit grey from the overcast skies but that didn’t keep me from finding ways to capture a beautiful and bright session for these two! Their session was on Monument Avenue in downtown Richmond and that area is full of beautiful old homes, unique architecture and tree-covered sidewalks. It was the perfect spot for a pup to be included in the shoot!!!
Michael and I loved getting to know these two (and their family members!) during their session and we’re honored to be the ones capturing their wedding day!! The very next time we’ll see them will be on the big day and we can’t wait!!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
