James + Maggie

A Winter Pippin Hill Farm Wedding in Charlottesville, VA

filed in:

I have always loved having at least one or two weddings during the off season! It’s such a great way to ease into a new season without diving in head first, weekend after weekend! James and Maggie’s wedding was such a peaceful, laid back day!! They were married at Pippin Hill Farm, one of our favorite Charlottesville venues!! Not only were we working with one of our favorite venues, we were also working with two of our dearest friends the entire day!! It’s always a fun day when we get to work with Tyler and Ashley Herrinton!!

One of my favorite moments of the entire day was watching Maggie read her letter from James just moments before the first look. James reminded her of all of ways that she has made him a better man and how much he adores her. She fought back the tears but it was a tough battle. She was about to see him for the first time and their wedding day was beginning!! They’ve been looking forward to this day for years and it was finally here! Their family and friends arrived at Pippin Hill right as the sun was beginning to dip behind the mountain. The ceremony ended at dusk and the party began!

I absolutely loved their decor and details! The had antique ladders suspended from the ceiling that were draped in florals. Pippin Hill is gorgeous on its’ own but after Maggie and her mom added their touch, it was just STUNNING! I loved getting to know their sweet families and celebrating alongside of them. We’re getting close to the beginning of our busy season and this was such a perfect way to get back into the swing of things!! Enjoy this incredible Pippin Hill Farm Wedding!!!!!!

Samantha + Evan Private Estate, Backyard Wedding

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!

KJ Student Spotlight October 2020

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!

Jesse + Hope | Engaged A Fan District Engagement Shoot

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.

Jonathan+Melanie Grand Ivory Wedding

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.
