How long has it been since I’ve done a “Good Things” post?! For-ever!! Wow! It’s been so long that I may need to re-explain what this series is all about. Basically, when I first started blogging, I would share a few things here and there about the things I loved!! It started out with things like lip gloss and magazines and then it grew to Diet Mountain Dews and Filet-o-Fish! Weird, I know. But somehow, people connect to this stuff. I LOVE reading about other photographer’s favorite things!! Well today I wasn’t to share three more “Good Things” that I am loving! Let’s get to it! :
1. VINE! Vine is a new app for iPhone users that allows you to take a bunch of mini clips and it automatically makes a little 6 second video! It’s like Instagram for videos! We’re loving it… especially for Bokeh videos:)
2. The Daniel bible study by Beth Moore! Two of my girlfriends from church and I are doing this study and it’s so nice to have a reality check every week! It’s an a amazing study!!
3. Sleep Machine! Michael and I use this EVERY night. It’s a lot easier than using a box fan! The white noise helps me not to hear him snore:) and it also keeps Bokeh from growling at every creak that the house makes!
So there you have it! Three little good things that make my life a little easier, a little more joyful and closer to God!! Happy Wednesday!
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.
