Have you ever had a client make a photo request that makes you uneasy??? Here’s an example..…. What do you do when a bride asks you to shoot her FIRST LOOK in HARSH LIGHT! She wanted to have her venue in the background of all of her first look images and I mean, I understand why she wanted this. Her venue was epic! The problem was that in order to make her request happen, we had to photograph one of the most important and emotional parts of the day in bright, harsh, mid-day light!
I knew when she made this request that I could potentially make her dreams come true but it would be HARD! If my client requests something that isn’t at all possible or would definitely result in a negative outcome, I will educate them on why we need to take a different approach.
However, in this situation, I knew it could be done…. I was just nervous about it!
I’m letting you in on a little BTS of Christian and Amanda’s wedding day!! We filmed this entire day and are allowing thousands of photographers to learn from our footage! You get to learn from a little snippet today for free!! Here’s a free 14 video sneak peek into what it’s like to work with us and how we handle a wedding day request that would make any natural light photographer a little uneasy!
If you would love to see the ENTIRE wedding day and learn from being our VIRTUAL THIRD SHOOTER, we would LOVE to have you join thousands of other photographers and become a KJ ALL ACCESS member!!!
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.
