We met at her coaching session and I just loved Meredith! Normally we do coaching sessions, but then we don’t really get to see our coaching clients again unless we are at an industry event or at a coaching reunion! Well that wasn’t the case with Meredith! She emailed me last year and asked if I would be able to capture her vow renewal and we just so happened to be free!! We photographed Meredith and Jason’s vow renewal at the beautiful Seven Spring wedding venue this past Friday and it was such a joy! We loved everything about this intimate celebration!
Jason and Meredith have been married for ten years and they have the sweetest kiddos! Their little boy helped dad get ready and their three year old daughter helped mom! Friends and family members joined them for their special day and I was shocked when I realized at dinner that most of them had flown in!! That is dedication and it says so much about who Jason and Meredith are. They are obviously loved so much!!
Their ceremony was during golden hour and their pastor got a little emotional after Meredith walked down the aisle to her husband of ten years. He shared that there is such beauty in a recommitment ceremony… especially in the world we live in today. Our society seems to value marriage less and less these days and yet Jason and Meredith decided that after 10 years, they not only needed to celebrate what God had done but also recommit themselves to one another all over again. It was a beautiful day and Michael and I loved not only capturing their celebration but we also loved feeling like we were a part of the family! We have the sweetest couples and I can’t wait to introduce you to Jason and Meredith!! Enjoy my favorites!!

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.
