Tell me if this sounds like you… You come home from a shoot or a wedding. You cull it and edit it and then you blog the images. You’re feeling ON TOP OF THE WORLD and then it happens….. you step away from the computer and then you come back to your screen with fresh eyes and you see it. Your skin tones are BLUE, GREY & all OVER the place! It’s the most frustrating thing… EVER! You feel like you’re accomplishing SO much and then you have to re-edit your images AGAIN because you don’t want your clients to look like they have poor circulation!!
This used to happen to me ALL of the time! I would be working my butt off only to realize that my skin tones were off. The issue is, most of us don’t realize our skin tones are off until AFTER we have blogged them, instagrammed them or shared them on Facebook! I don’t know why it always seems to happen that way. Well, years and years ago, I got so tired of this happening to me that I started studying the way I was editing and I was determined to STOP LOSING PRECIOUS TIME OVER SKIN TONES!
The truth is, when you re-edit something, you’re doing DOUBLE the work. The problem with that is that you’re not getting PAID for DOUBLE THE WORK. Every single time you re-edit an image, you’re losing money and you’re doubling your workload. I knew I wasn’t the only who we struggled with this. It’s an epidemic that photographers don’t want to talk about because it’s embarrassing and annoying!
So, we have a solution for you! Instead of struggling to master skin tones and losing precious office time to re-editing…. let me teach you my secret to consistent skin tones!!! I’ll be hosting a FREE online class this week where I’ll be sharing my SECRET to editing skin tones AND some amazing WORKFLOW tips as well! You have to join us!! I mean, it’s FREE! Why wouldn’t you?!
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.
