A While Ago

This wedding happened a little over a year ago. These people are so special to me. I love them. They are on my mind this evening; I wanted to share a few highlights from their day, just for nostalgia sake!

I love you Tyler and Michelle. I am inspired by your spirits and your love!! So happy to have been there from the start!

Kamee June End-of-Summer Sale

I know it’s the end of August. I know. I feel it. We are all back to school next Wednesday. My kids and I are in complete denial. We have had one of THE BEST summers EVER!! I normal do the annual sale in June, to be thematic and all, but the summer sun and fun was just too magnetizing; I told myself I would do it in my birthday month instead. Then I decided to celebrate myself and being alive for a WHOLE month. I decided to make it an August sale. Then we moved. Now it’s the end of August and I decided, “WHAT THE HECK!! It is always a good time for a great sale!!” So, the Kamee June summer sale is finally happening; mylegit half-yearly is happening; I AM just like Nordstrom!!! Eeeeee!! Kinda. Sorta. In my head. ;)

The sale is EVERYTHING DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST AND ALL OF SEPTEMBER!!!

Now read the real post, but where it says that you have to book by the end of June it really means by the end of August!! ;) Then email me with questions or to get yourself booked!!! xxx

And now for the post written, ahem, two months ago. Sorry for the delay!!

I like to think I am a little, just a little like Nordstrom. They have a half yearly, so I copy them, and have one too. Something in June, because I am thematic that way, and something half yearly, in November!! I like the June one, because, it’s, well, June!!

When people first meet me they usually ask about the June bit, or they call me Ms June-thinking it’s my last name. Kamee June is a pretty cute name, right? Kamee isn’t even my given name, Kamaree is, and June isn’t my last name; it’s my middle name. I was named after my Grandma June. Then I am usually asked if I was born in June. Nope, July. Regardless, I love BOTH months!!

Anyway, enough about that, it’s June (August) and it’s Half-Yearly SALE time!!! Everything Kamee June, EVERYTHING, during the month of June is 20% off!!! (this is the part where you insert August and September!!!) Hoooray!!!! You do not have to use what you purchase in June (August/September), you just have to use it within the next year, so before June 2017 (August/September 2017) (weddings are a little different; we can extend them a bit if you aren’t getting married for a while, but know you want to take advantage of the sale). It’s easy, email me (kamee@kameejune.com) tell me what you would like to buy for 20% off, remember EVERYTHING KJ is included: portrait sessions, one on one mentoring sessions, wedding weekends with KJ, KJ gift cards (also 20% off! Perfect for friends or family and a great deal for you!! Buy a $100 gift card for only $80 with the 20% discount!!), AND both wedding packages are 20% off as well!! That’s right, because all of me, loves all of you…can you tell I shoot weddings? ;) No, it’s because it’s JUNE (August)!!!! Hooray!!!! Pay your deposit to lock in the the 20% deal (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 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 photograph here are a few from my brides and grooms from this summer! There have been so many more; I am working on their files now, and will post all that gorgeousness soon!

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

This sweet bride, Caroline, even wrote me the kindest testimonial!! Both she and David have hearts filled with GOLD!! I adore them!! She shared, “Kamee is one of those people you meet and never forget. From the first time I emailed her about a quote, her radiance and zest for life was apparent. Her love for photography transcends not only through the lens of her brilliant and unique work, but through all of her interactions with her clients as well. She is an absolute natural at what she does and has a true gift of making you feel comfortable from the second your photoshoot begins (something that is so unnatural for me!) Kamee is special. I never knew how crucial it was to find a photographer that you connect with, and Kamee is one of those people that you will walk away from feeling like you knew her your whole life. She will go the extra mile to get you know you and your story, just to ensure your photographs speak to it and your individual experiences. I can’t say enough great things about Kamee, she is truly one in a million. If you can do one thing with assurance through your wedding process, book her. It will be the best decision you make! Thank you will never be enough Kamee!”

Thank you so much Caroline and Dave!! You will always be so special to me! xx

Ohh!! One more I found of she and her gorgeous people!!

Just a Couple

of pretty images from last Sunday’s wedding. There are so many to share, but I just wanted to get these up. Wait until you see their portraits. And their details. This wedding was so perfectly simplistic and sweet, just the way romance and love should be!!

Just a couple for now. The couple portraits will come soon!! xx KJ

Wedding Vows: My Current Favorite Part

I LOVE DIY weddings! They are so special and sweet and I find them to be particularly intimate because everything contributed to the wedding came from the those involved. It’s a labor of love. I am an especial fan of DIY vows, or rather, homemade vows, rather, brides and grooms that write and share their hearts on their wedding days. The vow part usually gets me emotional. I love the promises made; it’s the most important part of the day, the reason “we have all gathered together today”. I love it when the couple isn’t afraid to really share what they feel through the power of prose, and I really love it when their words for each other, move us, and them, to tears.

Brett and Lindsey’s vows were lovely. They laughed. They cried. They shared their true hearts with all their dearest friends and family and most importantly with each other!

May they inspire you to renew those promises you carry in your heart.

For now I will let it be that I am so grateful to be a part of this life and all the beauty that surrounds me!! So grateful for these brides (and their sweet grooms-and their wonderfully kind and loving families-) who are also my good friends!! So thankful for all the love I witness that fills my heart!!

Kamee June Annual June (ahem, kinda) Sale

Insert Addendum (added at beginning, not end):

I know it’s nearly August. I know. I know this post is two months late. It would take ages to explain where I have been and why I didn’t just click publish on this when it was ready…Whatever, it’s up now!! ;) AND, the legit half-yearly is happening, so I AM just like Nordstrom!!! Eeeeee!! Kinda. Sorta. In my head. ;)

So the sale is actually EVERYTHING DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST!!! August because it’s two months after June, one month after July…

Now read the real post, but where it says that you have to book by the end of June it really means by the end of August!! ;) Then email me with questions or to get yourself booked!!! xxx

And now for the post written, ahem, two months ago. Sorry for the delay!!

I like to think I am a little, just a little like Nordstrom. They have a half yearly, so I copy them, and have one too. Something in June, because I am thematic that way, and something half yearly, in November!! I like the June one, because, it’s, well, June!!

When people first meet me they usually ask about the June bit, or they call me Ms June-thinking it’s my last name. Kamee June is a pretty cute name, right? Kamee isn’t even my given name, Kamaree is, and June isn’t my last name; it’s my middle name. I was named after my Grandma June. Then I am usually asked if I was born in June, nope, July. Regardless, I love BOTH months!!

Anyway, enough about that, it’s June and it’s Half-Yearly SALE time!!! Everything Kamee June, EVERYTHING, during the month of June is 20% off!!! (this is the part where you insert August!!!) Hoooray!!!! You do not have to use what you purchase in June (August), you just have to use it within the next year, so before June 2016 (August 2016) (weddings are a little different; we can extend them a bit if you aren’t getting married for a while, but know you want to take advantage of the sale). It’s easy, email me (kamee@kameejune.com) tell me what you would like to buy for 20% off, remember EVERYTHING is included: portrait sessions, one on one mentoring sessions, wedding weekends with KJ, KJ gift cards (also 20% off! Perfect for friends or family and a great deal for you!! Buy a $100 gift card for only $80 with the 20% discount!!), AND my wedding packages are 20% off as well!! That’s right, because all of me, loves all of you…can you tell I shot weddings? ;) No, it’s because it’s JUNE!!!! Hooray!!!! Pay your deposit to lock in the the 20% deal (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 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 because everything is better with a photograph here is one of one of my brides getting married this summer!! This was shot at her friend, Kara Keough Bosworth’s, wedding. Her big day is coming this summer, and I can’t wait!!!! In two weeks actually; I can’t wait Court!!!!!

So excited to hear from all of you and be a part of your celebrating and memory making!! Much love, KJ2015-05-29_0005 copy

2015-05-31_0002

Excited to hear from everyone!! Until then, happy June!!!

Drink Herself In

There is a moment. It happens very quickly- when a bride has a brief second to drink herself in, as, a bride: what she always imagined she would look like on her wedding day is smiling back at her in the mirror. It’s hypnotizing, really. Spellbinding.  I usually get emotional over it. It’s sweet- yet swift. It happens every wedding, and it is priceless. Grateful. Grateful I get to see all of these gorgeous brides marry see themselves perfectly- the way we all see them, regularly, not just on their wedding day!

Grateful to Ashley for taking me with her to shoot this wedding. Any time with you is a gift, Ashley; I am thankful for the memories we make for others and ourselves when we are together!!

Dear Tiffany & Co.

Dear Tiffany & Co.,

I am not afraid of a shameless plug. I would like to pitch these two for your next ad campaign. Tell me you don’t see your Tiffany blue all over these. Tell me you don’t see your writers’ new muses, in front of your faces. I mean, if it’s love in a box that you’re sellin’, then baby, these two could push little blue packages with satin white ribbons in adorable crisp bags out your doors like they were the new drug. I’d walk in to any Tiffany & Co. and buy this love; if I could. Take that to your advertising team and see what they come up with, then swing back on buy (see what I did there ;)), for the rights to the images!!

I do love you Tiffany & Co. I believe ours would be a true love too!

Jokes in my pockets. Megan and Doug, if you could bottle up your love and sell it, we’d all get in line for just a taste!! Much love to you both!! xx KJ

Feeling Nostalgic

My good friend Ashley and I have been gathering images to help create and album for a bride and groom. I know the experience is different for each person, obviously, but I get so nostalgic looking back at images that I shot. I know what my role was while I was there, and I hope I execute it well each time, but when I review the photographs and I feel everything that was happening all over again, it makes me feel, well, like I wasn’t there as a vendor, but rather there as a good friend of the family taking pictures. I love that. This family imparticular has become quite dear to me. I recently photographed Shayna’s sister’s wedding (you’ll see it soon too), and I am great friends with their mom. We text regularly and meet at Starbuck’s regularly, just for fun! I love them all so very much, and am grateful how this work has provided me with opportunities to find the people who always needed to be in my life!

Shayna and Alex, I am sending you both a big hug. Thank you for sharing all of these gorgeous memories with me!! Both of you are so kind and so filled with generosity of spirit and mind!! Thank you again for welcoming me into your family!!!

Causes Eyes to Sparkle

I am working on some images from a wedding I shot a while ago. I have been meaning to share every wedding, right after I shoot it, so each special day and all my brides and grooms gets the love and attention they deserve. Then, well, my real life takes over and one of my favorite pastimes (writing) and posting (all these pretty pictures) is put on the side.

I was glad when April was in touch. I LOVED revisiting their wedding; it filled my heart. I hope it always fills theirs when they see these! Just a few from their portrait session!!

Much love to you both!! Thank you for sparking the nostalgia in me!

Just read this…thought it was sweet and true. Here’s to the feeling we all love to love!!

Love-
