As soon as I met them at their engagement session, I knew that they were one of those couples that came into our lives for a reason. We were over booked for this year but we still had this past Sunday available. Joe and Perrin’s wedding just happened to be right the middle of our craziest season… #9 of 19 weddings in a row. Any photographer would admit that in the middle of a long stretch, you need something to inspire you and renew your love for your work…. Joe and Perrin’s wedding did just that. Their love for one another and everyone’s deep love for them was so thick in the air, you could feel it. These two have such an incredible story and contagious joy. As Michael and I photographed their amazing wedding day, I kept turning to him and saying “Don’t you just love them?!”.
Just being present on their wedding day and celebrating with them was a gift in and of itself. As I watched them say their vows, Perrin would squeeze Joe’s hands and they would both smile as big as they possibly could. Their wedding day was a day of joy, worship and victory. It’s so apparent that these two were made for one another.
Even though I barely know them, I left their wedding day feeling like part of their family and part of their story… and as a photographer, there is nothing more rewarding. So enjoy this sweet wedding today on the blog! I’ve been so excited to share it this week! Joe and Perrin, thank you for allowing us to capture your day!! We were so blessed and inspired by you guys in so many ways. Enjoy the honeymoon and welcome to married life!!! xoxoxoPerrin’s ring is just gorgeous! The tears started before the dress was even on:) STUNNING!! Going to see Joe for the first time…. Their first look was so precious!
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.
