There are a few little housekeeping details that I needed to share with all of you faithful blog readers!
1. The Basic’s Workshop is now officially closed! We have a GREAT group of photographer’s coming from all over Virginia to hangout and talk photography ALL DAY! I’m so humbled and honored that people are interested in coming to my first EVER workshop. It’s going to be a blast!!
2. Lisa was my 1000th COMMENTER on the blog! YAY! I was soooo excited it just happened to be one of my latest brides! Lisa you should receive an itunes giftcard shortly!(Buy you some Whitney Houston girl!)
3. I had such an awesome weekend with friends and family at Virginia Tech! The fun started on Thursday when my bestest friend Caroline randomly surprised me and showed up at CNU! I could have cried! I absolutely loved my time with her, sitting at panera all day Saturday and just catching up. She’s wonderful and I am such a better person because she is in my life!
I had an engagement session Friday night and late that evening I met up with Michael and my brother Corey to travel to Tech! We arrived at 2:30am! Kudos to Michael for driving the WHOLE way and letting me just sing. ha! We had an awesome weekend and got to go to the homecoming game. Emy is doing so well there and I just love that she loves it so much! She’s such a die hard hokie. Michael and I both agree that we have lived our “big school” experience through Clemson and VT. We love it and we can’t wait to go back!
Enjoy a few favorites from the weekend!
Gotta’ love her.
Evidently this means “Key play!” …. I realized this at the END of the game, don’t judge me!
Flip it around and it’s the state of VA. Very impressive marching band!
Kayli and Caroline!
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.
