It’s the second installment of our Summer Engagement Session Series! Now, this was technically a Spring session just as the trees were coming back into bloom, but with the beautiful blue skies, sunshine, and lush greens of the Huntsville Golf Club, how could we not include Marlee & Tim’s photos!?!
This session with Marlee & Tim kicked off our Spring/Summer engagement photo season, and what better way to take in the sun than with these two on a golf course? When the days are getting warmer, the sun is shining, and the greens are greenin’, golf courses/clubs are a great place for engagement photos during mid-spring to early summer. So, if you and/or your partner are members of Huntsville Golf Club, Fox Hill Country Club, Glen Oak Country Club, Glenmaura National Gold Course, or one of the other local clubs, these are beautiful locations to keep in mind for really any portrait photography session.
As for Marlee & Tim, we can’t wait to celebrate with them in 2023 !!
over the 2021 holiday season, we received one of the highest compliments we can get as artists in our industry: Kaitlyn reached out to us via email to express how meaningful her sister Kara’s Wedding Film was to her and their family, and asked us to capture her wedding day with Ryan just a few short months later at District Winery in Washington DC. so, in early spring of this year stephen and stay from our crew arrived in D.C., met with familiar faces, and prepared to tell the story of another Maloney Family milestone!
it’s been such an incredible honor to have the opportunity to archive and create at every turn for this wonderful family, and we are so grateful for the responsibility.
P.S. you can also see Kara & Rob’s Wedding Film here after you watch Kaitlyn & Ryan’s! https://youtu.be/PEWLWnFgKrM

Did you know you can have a KJAD Photographer at your Bridal Shower to document all the memories the day brings!? That way you’ll have a whole gallery of photos of you with your loved ones to look back on time and time again. Better yet, your friends, family, and bridal party can stay in the moment and spend the day without worrying about if there are enough photos to have and to share!
Here’s just a small sneak peek at what we captured at Michaela’s Bridal Shower at The Banks in Pittston, PA.
Our first wedding of the season at Edgewood in the Pines was one we looked forward to celebrating with Melissa & Cody all through 2020. After they navigated how the year would affect their wedding, we were there to capture what was initially planned to be a September autumn celebration and became a beautiful day in May. They are truly wonderful people and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph such a monumental day in their life together.

This day was especially close to the KJAD crew as Todd is a former student of Steve’s from Wilkes University, where he & Alysa met through mutual friends. Two years later, Todd would propose during a private meet & greet with Rapunzel, which brought us all together here at their beautiful Disney Inspired Wedding at the Sand Springs Country Club in Drums. From the details (that hairpiece!!), a heartwarming first look with dad, a smiley Todd watching Alysa come down the aisle, and a magical first dance, to the happiest inspired decor on earth, their wedding day was truly something special. We are so appreciative to have had the opportunity to capture these moments and memories. Cheers to Alysa + Todd!

Our photography and videography crews started our 2021 wedding season at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ with Kiki and Dave. Kiki had been planning her destination Congress Hall wedding for as long as she could remember. So, being able to carry out her dream wedding despite the global pandemic, meant more to her than one could imagine. With a stately, historic yellow building and a perfectly blue sky as the backdrop of this chilly early spring Cape May beach wedding, we give you Kiki’s dream wedding… oh and Dave’s too!! ; )
Oh and be sure to check out the “KJAD aqua” ballroom. So cool.

Cheers to The Broms!! Beth and Sean’s story starts when they were both part of the production of Guys and Dolls at their alma mater, King’s College. “The rest is history,” says Beth. Naturally, we had to expect some stellar performances on their big day. During Beth and Sean’s beautiful ceremony, Beth’s brother and sister-in-law sang “One Hand, One Heart” from West Side Story. The celebration continued at none other than The Woodlands; the same place Beth’s parents held their reception when they were married. Beth and Sean even reenacted the same pose at the same location of one of their favorite photos from Beth’s parents’ wedding album. Sean and his mom shared an epic mother-son dance covering nearly every inch of the dance floor, and Beth’s dad sang his rendition of Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight” during their father-daughter dance. We have to admit, it melted our hearts. Beth’s junior bridesmaid even accompanied their band, Class Act Band, and everyone on the dance floor went crazy! From Beth’s perfect dress designed by Justin Alexander and their super romantic centerpieces by Robin Hill Florist to all of the awesome dance floor moves and sweet moments, these photos will have us smiling for a long time to come! It was also the first time we got to put our Mag Mod equipment to use, and we are in love with Beth and Sean’s sunset photos. We hope you love them as much as we do!!
Congratulations again to the newlyweds!

We’ve been through a lot with Sara and Joe; designing stationary, meeting after meeting, that one time Joe accidentally glued some invitations to a few envelopes that we will now refer to as The Great Glue Stick Incident of 2019.. After all of that, we’re so glad that we could add watching these two say ‘I Do’ to the list! Their whole day, from lake side prep to their Westmoreland Club sparkler sendoff, was filled with so much love from their family and friends. We are absolutely in awe over their color palette, the epic greenery that decorated their reception, and the sheer epic-ness of everyone (especially Joe who was able to obtain a microphone from the amazing Uptown Band) breaking it down on the dance floor. There was so much energy during their reception that Sara and Joe were even lifted into the air at one point! We hope you enjoy this look into their day as much as we do!
Congrats to the Collini’s!
