is a BIG DAY!! It’s one of those days that reminds me that Michael and I are capable of so much more than I was ever able to do on my own. It’s a day that reminds me that projects that seem too complicated and too overwhelming really aren’t that far out of reach if you are dedicated to it….. And last but not least, today is a day when I mark a giant bucket list item off and CELEBRATE! Today we are announcing the opening of THE COLLECTION By: Katelyn James… and online resource for the growing photographer!! We have a SHOP everybody!!!!
For so long, I’ve wanted a place to offer ALL of our educational resources. Links to workshops, coaching and PRODUCTS! This is a whole new world to us! We’ve offered workshops and coaching for years now and we’ve realized that even though they sell out every time, there are still photographers around the world that we will never be able to reach and teach in person. So The Collection is our solution! With this online shop, we’ll be able to share resources with ANYONE! We’re SO excited!! Here are some of the main things we’re looking forward to! :
And like any new store, we want to celebrate our FIRST DOLLAR MADE! So congrats to Brittany Sain!! She was our first customer and she’s going to get a FREE BRIDAL GUIDE PDF! Thank you Brittany! I feel like I should frame a dollar in my office with your name on it! :)
So are you READY FOR THIS?! You can view The Collection HERE!!!! Happy shopping everyone!!! And please, let us know what you think and share if you’re a fan of it!!!
This session is beautiful… if I do say so myself! It’s colorful, it’s vibrant, it’s full of joy and it’s also LONG! It’s a lengthy post because I just had so many favorites and I absolutely loved my time with these two last week! Paige, like a lot of our brides, is a photographer herself! She’s talented, full of life, energetic and creative. I felt the pressure to take this location that she knows well and make it look fresh and knew to her!! Nikhil is an audio engineer for Apple (which we think is fascinating!) and despite hardly ever wearing a suit, he wore one for Paige and made all of her outfit dreams come true!
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.
