you say? Well, it’s a very, VERY confusing electrical map of our first floor of the new house. While it looks like a hot mess, it’s really quite exciting. We walked through the whole house yesterday morning and added receptacles, scooted recessed lights and talked about switches. We’re so new to this and we’re so thankful for our site manager’s patience. The crazy thing is that we’re leaving for California for a week and so who knows what will change while we’re gone!! Pretty soon we’ll have siding and STONE (yes, stone:) and some brick! The windows are in, the plumbing is run and the electrical is a work in progress.
It’s coming together!!! FAST!! We’re so so excited but as we leave for a week on Saturday, we’re leaving two important things behind…. a constantly changing new home and sweet little Bokeh Boy. As we continue to prep, pack and prepare… I’m seriously lining up bokeh-sitters AND new house sitters! ha! I’m hoping Daddy will make some trips over there and text us some pics of the progress!! There’s just so much to do before leaving for a week!! I’m off to conqueror the to-do list. Happy Thursday everyone!! And because every post is better with a lil Bokeh…. here’s a picture from last night…what a cutie:
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.
