This is a post that seems so surreal to write. I remember when I first decided to launch our online store…. I wanted to provide a way for photographers to learn from us no matter WHERE they were in the world. We started the educational side of our business with big dreams and big goals but we NEVER imagined the impact it would have. After launching The KJ Collection, I always had this idea in the back of my mind….
I wanted to offer a course online.
I knew it was possible… but it’s a lot of hard work. It’s a lot of planning. It’s a lot of energy…. and it’s A LOT of content. Michael and I had an honest discussion about this before we decided to move forward with this big project. We asked ourselves “Can we really give away ALL of my editing secrets? Is it going to hurt us to tell the world how to create work like us? Is it SMART to offer this online for ANYONE to have access? LIFETIME ACCESS?!” ….. And you know what we decided…..
We decided that this project wouldn’t just be about teaching people to edit and define a style, it would be about having a LIFE. We realized that we have the power to give photographers their LIFE back and so we decided to GO FOR IT. We made the decision to create a course that will be a game changer for photographers because changing their LIFE was more important than the fear of someone else trying to be an exact copy of us!!
So now that you know how we got to this place…. we are SO excited to announce…….. THE KJ CONSISTENCY COURSE : Editing and Curating for a Defined Style!
This past week we launched our FIRST online course! The KJ Consistency Course is 6 weeks long, self-paced and allows photographers to have LIFETIME access to the 12 hours of educational video content that they’ll be receiving! This is BY FAR the most exciting educational opportunity we have EVER offered online and registration will remain open until THIS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 20th!!!
There is SO much you need to know about this course… but the MAIN thing I want to make sure you know is that we actually have a BONUS that we’re giving away to course students and this is one of my FAVORITE parts about this course!
As some of you may know… if you follow the blog… we blog weddings FAST…. most of the time, they are prepped and ready for the blog within 48-hours of shooting them!! When you combine efficient editing, a strategic curating system and our 48-hour workflow to your post-processing system…. you GET. YOUR. LIFE. BACK!!! Michael and I couldn’t survive wedding season without this in our life. So! We have actually decided to include the 48 HOUR WORKFLOW into the course as a BONUS module!!! Not only are we including this bonus module, we’re ALSO including… for the first time ever.. one of my LIGHTROOM PRESETS!!!! This is CRAZY!!
I still can’t believe that we’re doing this! We are so excited for all of the amazing photographers who are going to be learning from us starting December 1st! It’s going to be amazing!! If you’re someone who struggles with editing, struggles with blogging, struggles with defining your style or curating your images… this was made with you in mind.

It’s been a while since I’ve photographed an engagement session at beautiful Maymont Park. Meeting Ryan and Danielle there was perfect even though I totally forgot that Maymont closes so early! We heard a reminder that the park would be closing soon and just as I started to feel a bit panicked, the clouds cleared, the sun started to shine and I was able to capture the most beautiful light before we unexpectedly had to leave the park!
This beautiful day began in the historic manor house at Belmont Country Club. Abby was showing me her details and then she gave me a gift and told me to open it. I questioned her because it just didn’t seem right for the photographer to be opening a gift on the bride’s wedding day but she insisted! Abby had made me a custom cross-stitch of Michael and I with cameras in our hands! It looks JUST like us and I was just amazed at her talent and thoughtfulness!
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
