a dog. This is going to sound absolutely pathetic but I envy Bokeh some days. How amazing would it be to only have to worry about chasing squirrels and burying chew toys in the couch cushions? How awesome would it be to never have any responsibility other than to be yourself and be cute?! Bokeh wakes up, snuggles, goes out to pee and then his long day of napping, playing and eating begins. What a life!!! I think it’s safe to say that when you constantly envy the pace of life that your dog enjoys, maybe it’s time for a BREAK! I just finished the last wedding of the season on Saturday, took a quick trip to California for 3 days and tomorrow
is my workshop (which I’m pumped about!!). After the workshop there is a Q&A brunch and then I head to our Fall retreat for our youth group. THEN, I get a BREAK!!!! Michael asked me a few days ago “What’s happening next Saturday?”… and after a brief moment of shock… I answered him and said “nothing!”… Nothing is happening next Saturday!!! WOOHOOOOOO!!! I vote we stay in bed way too late, eat cereal and live like our dog for the day! Nothing to do but be together and bark at squirrels! Sounds like a plan me!!!!! Needless to say, I’m looking for to next Saturday:). Have a GREAT weekend!! I’m off to a fun day with AMAZING photographers from all over the country and Canada!!!! wowsers!!
If you’re a photographer interested in COACHING SESSIONS, there are still some dates available HERE!!
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.
