Father of the Bride

Brides contact me. On occasion grooms. More Mother’s of the Bride though than grooms, and I can count, on one hand, the Father’s of the Bride who contact me to help plan their daughter’s wedding. Those are the very sensitive few, who have been delegated certain jobs for whatever reasons. Mark, Rachel’s dad, was no exception. I didn’t speak with Rachel until the week of the wedding. I spoke with her dad, regularly. Not because he was micro managing anything, but because he wanted it all perfect, for his baby girl.

When we met, officially, on wedding day, I felt like I was meeting a kindred spirit, a father similar to my own.

Rachel and Colby’s wedding was so special- top to bottom, start to finish. I knew it would be though-so much love and concern went in to making it perfect!!

After the wedding Mark sent me an email, of thanks!! Touched my heart for sure. He asked if he could write me a recommendation. I was honored. I am including it here!! Thank you for these sentiments, Mark. I, however, was the lucky one. Thank you for sharing all of this love with me!!

Kamee – I wanted to follow-up and tell you what a GREAT job you did at my daughter’s wedding…You would be amazed at how many people commented on you at the wedding. Your personality was fantastic and fit in so well with the atmosphere. You weren’t just the photographer at the wedding, you became part of it! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks again for everything…Mark”

Kamee June Half Yearly!!

I always try to do it in June (To be thematic!). Then July (for my birthday, but it seems to make its way public in August!!

Kamee June is going to be getting a face lift soon!! My pricing will be making a few subtle jumps as well, so now is your chance to get in on the half yearly before things change-a bit!!

EVERYTHING Kamee June is half off from now until the end of September!!!  Everything Kamee June, EVERYTHING, from August 10th-Septmenber 10th is 50% off!!! Hoooray!!!! You do not have to use what you purchase in August or September, you just have to use it within the next year, so before August 2017 or September 2017 (weddings are a little different; obviously, we can extend the sale until your wedding day; you just have to book in August/September. It’s easy, email me (kamee@kameejune.com) tell me what you would like to buy for 50% off, remember EVERYTHING KJ is included: portrait sessions, one on one mentoring sessions, wedding weekends with KJ, KJ gift cards (also 50% off! Perfect for friends or family and a great deal for you!! Buy a $100 gift card for only $50 with the 50% discount!!), AND both wedding packages are 50% off as well!! That’s right, “because all of me, loves all of you”…can you name that wedding song? ;) No, it’s because it’s the Half Yearly!!!! Hooray!!!! Pay your deposit to lock in the the 50% deal, or make your payment in full (it will vary depending on what you purchase), and then you are set and we get to planning when you want to cash in (the balance, unless paid in full at booking, is due the week we shoot, work together, gift cards will be sent over in pdf’s, or the month before you get married.)

So easy, just like finding the most perfect thing at the half yearly, and knowing it is supposed to be yours!

And because everything is better with a few photographs here are a few from my summer shoot with my niece who brought the heat!!

So excited to hear from all of you and be a part of your celebrating and memory making!! Much love, KJ

PS Please email me with any questions you might have!!

I love you Summer; thank you for being so good to me!! Here’s to the KJ half yearly and making gorgeous memories together!!! Be in touch to get booked! xx

Summer’s Lovin’s Got Me Like Ohhhhh!!

Eat watermelon- see how far you can spit the seeds. Sit on your porch and breath in the summer night air- hold it for a second in your lungs, feel the freshness. Take a bottle of something over to your neighbor-share a glass, or two. Feel the warm sunshine on your shoulders and face, and smile because it touches you. Be in love-if you lost it, find it again. If you are looking for it, keep searching. If you have it and feel it, be grateful for it. Share your love-through the summer days and long into the summer nights.

So happy for these two. Their love feels like summer, all year long.

My Turn

Ashten,

It’s my turn to want to be YOU when I grow up. You are so special to me- always have been, always will be.

I have never had more fun talking about investment banking and birthing babies. You also inspired me to want to be on a kickball team.

I love you both, and your families, so very much!!

Can’t wait to do this again, in the Fall, in wine country!!

I could not “Passover” posting a few…

I adore this girl. She has been in my life for almost 15 years. I love her, her family, and now, her soon-to-be husband. She is so special to me; I couldn’t pass-over posting a few on this Easter, a few-days-after-Passover, Spring, Sunday-day. More to come, I promise, promise!!

Their day is going to be non-paralleled-just as they are!!
