WAY too many pictures this time. I really have a problem with narrowing down images for the blog. I thought it would get better with time. You know, after posting HUGE blog posts for two years, I thought I would get tired of all the work and would start selecting less images to post. Well, that day still hasn’t come. I’m still posting a BAZILLION images because I love showing them! My couples are amazing and we work hard at their e-sessions to create great images… so why not share them!? Right!? Well, I don’t really even know where to begin about these two. Rebekah is a wonderful
photographer and when she emailed me about shooting her wedding I was thrilled and nervous at the same time!! It’s such an honor to shoot another photographer’s wedding but it can also be intimating… these pics have to be AWESOME! Rebekah and Matt are two incredible people and I feel beyond blessed to be working with them! They met last October…. as in, a few weeks after I got MARRIED…and they will be married exactly a year from when they started dating…AH! I can’t even imagine! I just couldn’t believe it! Of course that seems crazy to me… the girl who dated her husband for 8 YEARS! I love that they just KNOW. They have no doubt that they are meant to be together forever. Matt said that he started saving for the ring a month after they started dating. How awesome is that?!
These two are so excited and in LOVE! It’s beautiful. You’ll be able to see that throughout their WHOLE post. They interact in a way that is so natural and they are so comfortable with one another! We shot in Georgetown and I must say… I’m in love with that place! I have driven through a few times but I had NEVER shot a session there until Monday! I was working with the most amazing couple, a gorgeous location and amazing light. The afternoon was perfect!…. Except for a little rain and me falling UP THE STAIRS… yea, that just happens to me periodically, I blame my size TEN feet! It’s ok, everyone needs to be humbled every now and then right?! haha
Matt and Rebekah, spending the afternoon with you reminded me of why I am in love with what I do. I left feeling inspired and wanting to go home and hug my husband!! I love capturing your love! Enjoy!!!!
Don’t you love Rebekah’s SHOES?! If I could walk in those… I would buy a pair!
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.
