  • The Workshop Experience

of people I need to thank in this post is a little overwhelming! SO many people come together to make my workshops happen and every time we host them, I’m reminded that I could never do this on my own! I’m SO thankful for everyone who helped out. Vendors, sponsors, attendees, the caterer, the venue, my mother in law, Rebekah Hoyt, Jessica Beale, Michael, etc. Really, the list just goes on and on. I did a post a month or so ago with some behind the scenes images. Today’s post is showing off the styled shoot side of the Fall Workshop Experience and I couldn’t be more excited!! I honestly LOVE these images so much! Janie Medley from The Bride’s Cafe and Dana Fitzgerald (an incredible stylist!) joined forces once again and made this shoot come to life!! The Virginia Center for Architecture has never looked so BRIGHT!!

  • New Year, New Look

definitely a big season for KJP! So many changes are taking place and the most recent change would HAVE to be the blog’s new facelift!! You like?! It’s different but it’s still ME and I love it! Flosites do my blog design work and for those that have been asking about the backend of my blog, it’s wordpress. Basically, I have WordPress with a fancy exterior and a few special features! My FAVORITE feature about this new blog is that viewers have the ability to scan through previews of weddings by clicking “Weddings” on the top menu bar! So thank you for stopping by and if you have a free minute,

we spent the day with Justin & Mary and their amazing crew in DC for the “What’s Next” tour! …. and when I say we spent the DAY… I mean ALL DAY. 10+ hours! That’s how much we love them.  It was SUCH a fun time. I just adore the photographers from the surrounding areas. They are simply amazing, genuine and sweet!! I had the chance to see some old faces, some new faces and some friends that flew in all the way from CA!! We have one of those great CA friends staying with us for the day as we prepare for the Global SHARE that’s being broadcasted live from our house…
