Have you ever pulled out your phone while you’re out and about and RIGHT before you take a picture, it DIES?! Or maybe you’re taking a video and you have 13% battery left and then it dies and doesn’t even SAVE what you were filming?! It’s just the worst! My phone’s battery life is HORRIBLE. Even after closing all of my apps, my battery doesn’t last and even though this is definitely a first world problem, it’s still a problem.
I rely on my phone for my maps, my email, mobile marketing, etc. So, after our recent trip to WACO…. which I can’t wait to share next week… I ordered a little device that solves all of my battery issues! Jill showed me her portable charger months ago but I didn’t realize how useful it was until we were at Magnolia Market and my phone DIED! How SAD!! Luckily, Jill’s $17 charger has THREE CHARGES on hand whenever we need them! She keeps it in her purse and she’s never without battery power!! It’s awesome! I just ordered mine and you can order one from Amazon HERE!
The next GOOD THING that I love is the JOJO CANDLE!!! I’m sure there is a specific name for this but I call it the JoJo Candle because it’s Joanna Gaine’s signature candle that is sold at Magnolia Market! They aren’t cheap but they are amazing and they can make a house feel fresh and homey in NO time!! We’ve burned through at least 3 of these candles in the last year and we plan to burn many more in the future! You can order your own JoJo candle HERE!
Last but not least… lets talk about Starbucks…. or “Bucky’s” as my friend Jill calls it. I don’t love coffee… I never have. However, I do love stopping at Starbucks because of the way that it feels! I know that’s crazy but it’s true! Stopping by Starbucks is such a fun little thing to do when we’re out but it’s hard to enjoy it when you don’t love coffee! So, I have recently found something that I really LOVE…. PEACH GREEN TEA LEMONADE!! It’s refreshing, fresh, light and doesn’t give me bad breath or yellow teeth! However, I don’t even want to know what the calories are like!!!
Happy Thursday Friends! You’re not going to believe this but I’m off on another little adventure. Actually, it’s a pretty BIG adventure! I’m heading to the mid-west with my sister to pick up her NEW PUPPY!!!!!! AHHH!!!! We’re in love with him already! I can’t wait for you to meet him!!!!!
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.
