Michael and I are enjoying a nice break from weddings right now. We love waking up on Saturdays and not rushing to a wedding! It’s awesome! We feel like NORMAL people! …. However, I know it won’t be long until I’m ready for some gorgeous weddings to come back into my life! Rest ultimately prepares you for work! Looking forward to our 2015 Wedding season, I have a few things that I know that I need to find. I’m hoping that some of you out there (since a lot of wedding photographers check this blog!) will be able to give us some advice!
I’m going to list out a few things that I know I need for the 2015 Wedding season and if you have ANY suggestions, let me know!!! I love hearing about what works for other people in the industry!!!
– A New camera bag! Mine has bit the dust! It needs to hold 4 lenses and one backup camera body. I’d prefer for it to be either camel colored, mint/teal or grey leather! With a long strap!
– New shooting dresses! These need to be modest, preferably with short sleeves, comfy, navy or black, and pockets are an added bonus! (ps. It would be nice to keep them under $80).
– New shooting shoes! My AGI’s from last year were awesome but they had a HARD life! I need either some bronze/pewter flats or a black pair! I’ve ordered Tieks and so we’ll see if I like them or not!!
Any suggestions?! I’d love to hear them!! Help us prepare for 2015!!!! KJ Brides we can’t wait for your big days!!!
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.
