I am happy to announce that the blog is officially on it’s own server and so I’m PRAYING there will be no more glitches! Whew! I have NEVER been so tired of talking to IT support! I feel like that is all I’ve been doing for the past two days. HOWEVER! It was worth it and I have to give a shout-out to my friends at HostGator who put up will all of my stupid questions! Thank you all for your help and patience!!! I appreciate it! (And because I’m a web dummy, I posted yesterday during the transfer so the comments from yesterdays post are gone for right now… but if you left one, I LOVE you for it!!)
Another HUGE Thank you is order for the wonderful people at PPA and Professional Photographer magazine for featuring MY BRAND in their latest issue! I’m SO HONORED!!!! My branding and office space was featured along with the Youngrens, Justin & Mary, & Jamie Delaine. Like I said, I am honored. I haven’t seen the issue in print yet but the digital copy makes me smile! The office looks so pretty…. no one will ever know that I had to fight Target to get my settee order right for 2 months or that there is a big knick in my desk where I hit it with a chair….. I guess these little imperfections mean that I’m making it “my own”! I’m so so grateful for my brand and business. Words can’t express how appreciative I am for those who support it daily! YOU ARE AWESOME. Yes, all of you. If you’re reading this, you’re awesome and I appreciate you!
So thanks again PPA for the article and if you’re a photographer, you should definitely spend the $29.99 and receive Professional Photographer! It’s $30 well spent! If you already receive it, this article is on page 38/39!
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.
