I arrived while hair and makeup was finishing up with the bridesmaids. Everyone looked so beautiful and the room was so relaxed and stress free. The door leading out to the porch was cracked and the windows were open to let the crisp October air in. It was the perfect day for a wedding. When couples plan for an October wedding, this is what they hope for! Sunny and 70 degrees!! Matt and Libby have been together for a long time and so this day has been anticipated for a while now! I just loved seeing everyone’s excitement for these newlyweds!! Matt and Libby are such a dream couple. We needed to get all of their portraits accomplished before the ceremony since the sun set at 6:30 and they were such pros at moving fast! Not only did we shoot some beautiful portraits of the two of them, we took some IN a bean field!! These two were up for anything and we just love that about them!
Their friends and family came from all over the celebrate alongside of them at the beautiful Historic Kent Manor Inn. This was our first time shooting at this awesome waterfront venue and we loved it! The water, the trees, the fields, the porches! There are SO many porches! It was a photographers dream!! And not only did they have an awesome venue, their other vendors were awesome as well! We loved getting to work alongside ClickSpark and they actually have a little preview to share at the end of the post! I can’t WAIT to see the entire film!!! So enjoy this pretty fall wedding! It’s hard to believe but we only have TWO MORE left this year!!!
Congratulations to Matt and Libby! Safe travels this week to your amazing European honeymoon!! You’re going to have a blast!!! xoxoPurple shoes!! Love it! I’m just warning you now, I went a little crazy on the details! Petal and Print always knocks it out of the park with their florals! I like styling details but I think Michael is pretty good at it too!!! Youtubing how to tie a bowtie!

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.
