living our house building experience through pictures right now. It’s a little nerve racking to think that we’re missing a full week and a half of work but we have some great house sitters (aka, our parents) who are keeping us up to date on the progress. Building a house is just a crazy experience…. and we do love it! We are just so thankful for the advice that we received about visiting the site everyday and taking a ton of pictures (like I would really have an issue with that). Right now they’re probably finishing the stone on the front and who knows what’s happening on the interior!
It’s so much fun to see the rooms drywalled!! It really looks like a HOUSE now!!! Since they have cleaned up the floors and picked up the nails, we let Bokeh boy run around for the first time last week. He LOVED it. In our house now, there isn’t a big enough space for him to really pick up speed! We quickly found out that he loves running laps in the new house! We ALSO found his favorite “lookout” spot!! There’s a window downstairs that allows him to see everything that’s happening on the road. He’s such a cutie! Enjoy some more house updates and I can’t wait to share what has been accomplished when we get back!!
The walls of the garage will be covered in stone, as well as above the porch on the second floor! Thanks to my momma for the pic!
Happy puppy! He explored…. And then he got tired…. :)
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.
