It’s always exciting to meet all of the bridal party at each wedding I shoot, especially the bridesmaids! I literally spend ALL day with them and so by the end of the reception, I feel pretty comfortable around them and it’s so much fun! I met Jackie at Ryan and Michelle’s wedding in the spring and she quickly told me she was engaged! Of course I thought to myself, “Do you need a photographer?!” I couldn’t have been more excited to receive an email from Jackie a couple weeks following the wedding. She’s so sweet and easy going and drop dead gorgeous, what more could I ask for!? I seriously don’t know why I get so lucky with my clients!
Jackie and Jason’s story is one of my favorites. They met, she was a city girl, he was a farmer. Jackie said she experienced the farm and the countryside and fell in love with it….and Jason. She’s so excited to be a farmer’s wife! It’s really adorable. Jackie is so proud of her man and all she wanted was to have their engagement session in his fields of cotton! (such an awesome idea!) I can’t explain how cool it is to have couple pick their location for their e-session. This location meant something to them…it’s their life! It fit them perfectly and I loved spending the afternoon with such a dynamite couple!
Enjoy a ton of favorites!
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.
