How to correctly prune Camellias & Gardenias?

I know I'm suppose to prun and fertilize after they bloom. It suppose to get cold here, below freezing this week.But mine bloom twice a year. Some Camellias have just finished blooming. They need heavy pruning, as, they are large, with half inch think limbs. Last year they bloomed before the last frost. New growth was burned. Gardenias finished blooming about a month ago. They bloom twice a year also. I just want to prun and fertilize correctl.
