“Boy” and he calls her “girl”. You have to hear it to understand how cute it is. It fits them. Erik and Holly are such a great example of what it looks like to have a strong friendship as the foundation of a relationship. When I met with Holly a few weeks ago to discuss wedding details and hear about the big day, I loved hearing all the ideas that Erik came up with! I was so impressed! He was very much involved in planning and I think that is AWESOME! … and what makes it even better is that his ideas are awesome too! The details of Holly and Erik’s wedding day were amazing! They put so much love and thought into everything that they did and it was perfect. Holly is super creative and it showed in every part of their day!
From escort cards with hand written notes to EVERY single guest, to the LIFESIZE engagement picture in the entrance of the reception hall, she thought of everything! All of these wonderful details made me happy but the best part of the day was watching Holly and Erik celebrate with family and friends! It was quite a party! Everyone was so genuinely happy for the two of them! It was such an honor and privilege to be a part of their wedding!
Holly and Erik! You’re awesome and I hope Jamaica is wonderful! Thank you for allowing be to be with you on your wedding day!
Holly had some design help by the fabulous Jenni Green! Love her!
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.
