worse than getting a bad case of “Procrastination” when you’re planning a wedding! There were some things about our wedding that I was on top of! …. For example, Michael proposed to me on a Monday Night and I emailed Jasmine Star on Tuesday morning. Actually…. I’m pretty sure I emailed her a year before I was engaged but that’s just embarrassing and I won’t tell that story. I had my priorities and finding Michael a tie wasn’t one of them. The reason I procrastinated shopping for a tie was because our suits were a strange brown color and I had NO IDEA what was going to match!
I was already overwhelmed with other details that needed to get done and so I waited until two weeks before the wedding to find him a TIE! What was I thinking!? Ah!!! I searched frantically in every store known to man and still couldn’t find anything that would look right! It was crunch time now! My friend Emily told me that they had found Seth’s Tie at Bows-n-Ties.com and so I started looking there. If I ordered one tie, I would have to have it shipped SUPER fast and what if it came and didn’t match?!!!! Fear was setting in and I quickly came up with a solution.
I’ll just buy EVERY POSSIBLE COLOR that could match and then return the rest. The great news is that I DID have one tie out of about 15 that worked! I loved it and Michael looked so good on our wedding day! However….. not only did I procrastinate finding a tie…. I procrastinated sending the extras back to the company! I missed the deadline and I now I’m stuck with 14 random, neutral colored ties!! So if anyone is interested in buying some tan, cream and ivory ties for 75% off…. I’m your girl! Enjoy your Wednesday and brides, a little tip from me… find your ties NOW!:)
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.
