September 2015 Workshop | Styled Shoot

  • An Equestrian Inspired Shoot at Big Spring Farm

This past September we did something new. We hosted a workshop at our friend’s farm in Lexington, Virginia!! Big Spring Farm is a magical place to us and we were excited to share it with 17 other photographers at our fall Workshop Experience! People flew into Richmond and DC and some drove for HOURS and HOURS to be there! It was an incredible event! The Farm NEVER disappoints. It’s just beautiful there!!

Jazz Nativity 2015

  • A Recap and a little "White Christmas"!

I don’t do this often. Sharing something that includes me SINGING is quite vulnerable!! However, our Jazz Nativity at our church was this weekend and it was amazing!! So, I just couldn’t help but share a little piece of it! I had one solo and a duet! I’m letting you hear the duet because the solo was loud and a tad cheesy and I was flat in three parts!!! haha So , Enjoy the duet because it was my favorite. It’s a classic and you can’t go wrong with a classic!

Dinner for Two Cookbook Review

  • A Home Made For Hosting

One of my FAVORITE parts of this job are the relationships we form with our couples! We love our KJ Brides and Grooms!! It’s fun to follow their journey even AFTER their wedding! Some have kids quickly, some move, some change careers, some buy houses and some do REALLY awesome things like write an amazing Cookbook and have a feature on the Food Network!! WHAT?! Julie is a past KJ Bride who has been running a super successful food blog for YEARS and it has turned into something amazing!!! I’m so so proud of her!
