we’re headed to shoot an engagement session and meet a new couple for the first time, I always know it’s going to go well when they are CNU alumni! :) I’m a bit biased but I think only awesome people go to CNU! We love that school and we love working with couples that went to our Alma Mater too!! Tony and Gabby are getting married next year and we can’t wait to celebrate alongside of them with our cameras in hand! These two both come from Italian families and from our past experiences from Italian weddings, I think it’s safe to say this is going to be one amazing party!
Tony and Gabby have had a long distance relationship for a while now. I knew first hand how hard that can be and so I’m sure they are SO excited to finally be married and living in the same location. We talked about their story, their families, their jobs and their wedding while we walked around Maymont and Belle Isle in Richmond. I loved photographing these two not only because they are a beautiful couple but also because of Gabby’s smile! Her joy is contagious and that made for beautiful portraits!! Enjoy this fall engagement shoot and get excited for their 2015 wedding!!! I can’t wait to photograph them as a bride and groom!!That smile! You two are naturals!! My job was a piece of cake! Love this! One of my favorites! We had a 70 degree day!! So beautiful! Love! We had the most gorgeous light to work with!! Another favorite! Ps. Gabby walked on this rugged terrain in HEELS! I was so impressed!
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.
