For this special post, I (Breanna) am actually going to hand over the control to a special new blogger on the Radiant team, our new associate photographer, Kelley Johnson. ALL the photos in this post were taken by the Radiant Photography associate team of Josh and Kelley Johnson. Click to see Josh and Kelley’s full portfolio here. And now a word (or rather many words) from Kelley herself!
Hello wonderful blog readers! Let me start off by introducing myself. I’m Kelley Johnson. My husband Josh and I are lucky enough to be the associate photographers for Radiant Photography. That’s right, Radiant has two teams now. You can hire one team, the other team, or both. It seems that Scottie and Breanna wanted to spread the Radiant love, and Josh and I were deemed cool enough to be added on. Pretty amazing huh? I know we’ve met once before (check out our “welcome to Radiant post” if you missed out earlier), but I thought you might want to know what we’ve been up to recently.
Since joining the Radiant team, Josh and I have had the honor of working and shooting with Scottie and Breanna (the Radiant founders/Photography Rockstars) for multiple weddings. I could describe everything to you by simply typing it all out, but let’s get real, you come here to see pictures right? That’s what I thought. How about we meet half way; I’ll show you some of the photos that Josh and I have taken recently and also explain how much fun we have been having along the way. Sound like a plan? Then let’s get going!
First, let’s talk about Jeff, Laura, and their wedding. If any of you guys stopped by the Radiant wedding expo booth this July, you may recognize Laura. She is the beautiful bride that was awesome enough to hang out with Josh and me all day!
Look at that great group of people! Don’t they look fun? They really were! They were fun, their family was fun… Actually, speaking of their family, Jeff is Breanna’s cousin!
Jeff and Laura both love the work that Scottie and Breanna do with their cameras (who doesn’t?) so they knew they wanted them to photograph their wedding, but they also wanted them to be able to have fun and relax with their family on this special day.
So, Scottie and Breanna handled the pre-wedding and ceremony shooting, and then relaxed/partied as Josh and I shot the reception. Although, we could not help ourselves and took lots of photos before the reception too. I mean, look at these good looking people, how could we resist?
I must say, fun was had by all on that great night, and Josh and I really enjoyed getting to meet Laura, Jeff, and so many other members of Breanna’s great family!
Next up was the epic wedding of Dash and Morgan.
Coincidentally, Josh and I have been friends with Morgan for years, so when we heard that Scottie and Breanna were thinking about having us help out with this wedding, we were thrilled and honored!
From the first moment they saw each other, this wedding was beautiful.
Sometimes knowing the bride you are taking photos of can be dangerous though. I definitely cried while taking photos of Morgan dancing with her dad. Now, those two things can be tricky to do at the same time, but I sucked it up, wiped my tears, and I think it worked out just fine.
Even their sweet flower girl looked epic in her cute tulle skirt and bejeweled hair clip. I know Morgan and Dash put a lot of work into planning each and every detail of their wedding, and I think it is safe to say that their hard work truly paid off.
Josh and I also had the pleasure of helping out during Stephanie and Garrison’s white wedding day.
I have to say, Josh and I were digging this location and the lighting that it brought with it! You almost couldn’t take a bad shot. Although, that may have also had something to do with the fact that Stephanie and Garrison are the perfect models… Yeah, I think that was it.
These two were troopers when it came to photos outside. The Phoenix heat was killer, but somehow, I don’t think they even noticed.
One week after Stephanie and Garrison’s Scottsdale Wedding, we headed north to the cool Heber, Arizona. The break from the Phoenix heat was fantastic, but even more fantastic was the wedding and unique session that Josh and I got to be a part of.
Meet Ken and Barbie. Oh sorry, I mean Jay and Christen. They look so much alike, sometimes I get confused.
In all seriousness though, this couple is the epitome of being beautiful inside and out.
Needless to say, we were thrilled to get to spend another day with them during their unique session.
I love that they got images that were romantic and dramatic, and then they showed their fun side as they jumped into the pond!
What a great weekend, and an absolutely amazing couple!
Well, it’s been great showing you some of our recent work while also letting you in on what Josh and I have been up to lately. Still, this relationship is feeling a little one-sided. We’ve told you all about ourselves, and now we want to meet you, and maybe take your pictures too! Josh and are I are looking forward to getting to know all of you more!
