me that other day that “You haven’t done a “Good Things” post is SO LONG”. Well, apparently Michael likes those posts… or maybe he just likes consistency (which is KEY to blogging well). Either way, I’m thankful for his input and I decided to blog about some “Good things” that have become great BRAND BOOSTERS! When I say “Brand Boosters”… I’m talking about things that people notice and say “Ohh that’s cool, is that your logo!?” or “How did you find that in your shade of TEAL?!”. Did you know I have my own shade of TEAL? Everyone talks about TEAL like I own that color…. and I would like to think that I do.
It’s been my favorite color since my freshman year of college and I’m very dedicated to it! My whole BRAND is dedicated to it! So here are some examples of teal brand boosters… The best example would be my iphone case. I ordered this custom case from case-mate.com a few months ago and I have been so happy with it! And people LOVE it! I really didn’t expect for it to be such a hit but evidently it’s really cool to have your own logo on your phone case! Who knew?! It’s great! It starts conversation AND makes you look totally profesh. (Can’t believe I just used that abbreviation). So that definitely deserves to make it into a “Good Things” post!
The second item is a custom stamp! I ordered this stamp through http://www.rubberstamps.net/ and it’s so much fun to use! It’s one of those “business expenses” that was totally unnecessary but I love it! It’s quite fun to stamp everything I see with a metallic silver “K” logo!
Last but not least, this may be my favorite of them all, we found TEAL LEASHES!!! I’m tempted to buy our new puppy an embroidered sweater with my logo and call him my MASCOT!!! Trust me, he’s THAT cute! We can’t wait to get him! (Can you tell I’m excited?! I talk about him every time I BLOG!) So happy Tuesday and enjoy this chilly day Virginians, it finally feels like winter around here!!:)
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.
