I have admitted before that I spend WAY too much time on wedding blogs. I stalked these blogs BEFORE I was engaged and now that I can justify it, I let it consume hours of my time! (yes, I said hours….don’t judge) I love wedding ideas that are new and fresh and CHEAP! The more I stalk, the more I realize that the possibilites are endless when it comes to designing a wedding!
After Michael proposed, I remember people asking immediately “What are the colors?! Blue? Green? TEAL?!” I was so overwhelmed. This was a huge decision. The colors of a wedding really dictate that overall feel of the day! I wanted them to be perfect. So riding home from dress shopping (literally 4 days after we got engaged!), I thought of peacocks! I loved them, they were classy, and elegant and TEAL! I decided to go with it! Teals and browns and greens, it was exactly what I wanted! I immediately told Michael the idea and like usual, he said to go with it! I started planning immediately. I found deep teal bridesmaids dresses and started collecting antique votives and vases. Figuring out our theme was what really allowed me to start planning! Before, I had no idea what direction to go in.
One thing that really helped was collecting images from wedding blogs that really caught my eye. I LOVE creating inspiration boards and so I thought I would share a little inspiration for my wedding! Enjoy!

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.
