Happy Friday! If you’re a fellow east-coaster, you may be having a pretty DREARY end to your work week. It’s POURING here. Buckets and buckets of rain are falling from the sky and it’s miserable. It’s the type of day that makes me want to lay in bed and do nothing but watch a movie and relax. But instead of doing that… I had a great client meeting, ran errands, went out to lunch with my husband and made a Target run. Productive, wouldn’t you say? Oh Target. You steal so much of my money and yet I’m ok with it because I love what I come home with. I’m in the process of a mini-reorganization project in the office and Target had just what I needed.
It also had a ton of stuff that I didn’t need. I refrained from the impulses to walk out with some new teal earrings and a mustard yellow peacoat… instead I just left with my project materials, some dry shampoo and a package of “Falsies”. I LOVE me some dry shampoo. I shower people! Don’t judge! But there are just some days when the hair needs a little help and there isn’t time for the whole washing/blow drying/styling process. The Falsies are yet to be experimented with. I’ll let you know if this mascara is a total waste or a fabulous find. All of our high school girls tell me it’s AMAZING. We’ll see if they’re right. So enjoy this Friday evening and pray for no more down pours! We want Alex and Rachel’s wedding to be rain-free tomorrow!!
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.
