Every couple I work with is happy. They are excited to be getting married to their best friend and their soul mate…but Justin and Jess are more than happy….they are joyful! You can see in it their images. There is a joy in their relationship that only comes from the Lord. It was mentioned during the ceremony that they are almost always smiling…especially when they are together. As their photographer, I couldn’t ask for anything more in a couple! I literally just told them to be themselves and I captured it. Their images are full of laughter and smiles and they just feel so genuine! …because they are!
Justin and Jess are such an awesome couple. Both share such a gentle, sweet spirit. They love the Lord and I can’t wait to see what they are going do in His name. It was such a privilege to capture their day and be surrounded by their friends and family. Jess and Justin, thank you for trusting me and allowing me to be a part your wedding. It’s such an honor and Michael and I couldn’t be happier for the two of you! Congratulations and have a blast in San Diego!
00h lala! Look at those colors!
Oh I love these! I just love them! They’re so stinkin’photogenic!
Can I just say that plain brick walls are not my most favorite background…but on a rainy day, I really just had to use whatever I could find and man did they make it work! I loved this portrait!
This is a favorite…… I think it’s just so model-ish!
Really? They’re so happy and it’s so wonderful! I love my job!
So after a disappointing change of plans, the reception was moved inside due to rain. They used the church Family Life Center and my first thought was “Oh no, flourescent lighting!”… a photographer’s worst reception nightmare! But a close friend designed and created a suspended masterpiece from the gym ceiling. It was BEAUTIFUL. The dance floor was covered by an arrangement of branches, twigs and lights. I was amazed! It TOTALLY transformed the room!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Brock!
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.
