The things I find most beautiful about a person are almost never physical. I tend to cringe at small talk. I want to hear about your childhood and the favorite meal your mom used to make you when you lived at home. What memories arise when you smell your favorite scent? What are 5 passions you have that make you feel alive? We are so much deeper than our exterior. That’s why I am drawn to photography. No one ever takes a photograph of something they want to forget. It’s not about the visible beauty on the outside, it captures the memory of the feelings, mindset and joy you felt leading up to that moment in time. It tells a story within itself that only the subjects fully understand. Some say “A photograph is the pause button of life.” Don’t be shy, comment your non-small talk below👇🏽 I wana hear about what makes you, YOU! #presspause #rememberwhen
After a long day of editing, emails, webinars and chasing the cutest 9 month old baby throughout the house, I’m spent! Tonight calls for something yummy to drink and lots of (super healthy🤥🤫) Chinese takeout. One thing is missing to this perfect evening of laziness (besides plastic utensils😂) ... a new Netflix show! Help me out here, what are you addicted to watching?! The hubs and I just watched the last episode of Hawaii 5-0 this week and need a new binge worthy show😝 #netflixandchinese
One of the perks of pursuing what I love is meeting new (and awesome) people...like YOU. For those who don’t know, I am a Fine Art Wedding Photographer who loves photographing happy people in love. I spend too much time laying in bed answering emails before my morning earl gray tea with cream. I eat entirely to many oranges on a day to day basis and my guilty pleasure is a bowl of Shrimp Ramen (shoutout to my Filipino/Hawaiian roots) I started my career 10 years ago when I photographed my first wedding for $100, I have since felt incredibly thankful to do what I love. That’s enough about me... I’d love to learn more about you, so let me know who you are in the comments below. I’d be so excited to chat. #ramenlover
Hello friends! I took some time away from social media to recharge and enjoy time with family and friends. That being said, I’ve missed my Instagram family! I am so ready for this coming year and all the exciting goals and experiences that will come with it! Nothing good comes without sacrifice. Today, as I think back on how scary it was to walk away from a steady job and take a chance on myself, I am thankful. I pushed through my doubts, all in the name of pursuing photography. It wasn’t easy, but I remain thankful. To the friends, clients and family who supported me, thank you. I wouldn’t be here without your belief in my ability to succeed. #backtotbegrind #refreshed #readysetgo
My homegirl @heschangingmyname is getting married today🙌🏽 So happy for you Candice + Bradley! Had way to much fun during their engagement photoshoot in Littleton Colorado! Loving her silver dress and his fancy bow tie vibes :) >>>>SWIPE to see more goodness>>>>
Work less, live more and do the things you love! Over the years I have come to realize that there is so much joy in less. Time is the real currency. How we are spending our day is ultimately how we are spending our lives. I choose to spend my life working a job that feels like play but even at that I still crave time to unwind from my dream 'job' and spend time focusing on family and friend time. On me time! This week I am planning to have a little 'me' time by stoping by my favorite bakery @sucrosestl for a little treat and doing brunch and a spa day with some of my favorite girls🙌🏽 Don't mind me...I'll just be over here stuffing my face with these fig tarts made of unicorns and rainbows🐷What are you looking forward to this week? #girlboss #dreamjob #qualitytime #treatyourself
Would you wear a colored wedding dress? I can't get over this perfectly gray gown😍 Having dress envy right now! @brianaleila @camstl
The leaves on the trees in my back yard are finally changing and it is making me so happy! The perks of the Midwest🙌🏽 🍃🍂🍁
I admit it feels awkward, but I’m STILL going to introduce myself anyway! It’s my way to connect with new friends and give me an excuse to chat with old ones. I’m Cami, and I am a Fine Art Wedding Photographer, wife of 8 years and mother to a 7 month old little girl named Magnolia. I started my business because I realized painting wasn't going to pay the bills! I love creating and I have always been fascinated by people and their stories and photography has allowed me to have the best of both worlds. When I am not photographing or editing I spend a lot of time being a total nerd reading psychology books and forcing my friends to take the Myers-Briggs personality test so I can read up about what makes them tick and why. Now I'm curious, what type are you? I'm an ENFP, no surprise there🙈 I am in a constant state of day dreaming, of planning trips, of trying new foods, hobbys and procrastinating. When I am not reading I am learning calligraphy or you-tubing some new ridiculous thing I have always wanted to learn or try. My life is one beautiful mess and I couldn't be more in love with it.
This hair, it's too perfectly imperfect and I love it🙌🏽 This boho up-do is everything. #bridalhair #hairgoals
No one ever said starting my own business would be easy...in fact, pretty much everyone said starting my own business would be crazy. But fast forward almost 10 years later, I’m excited that I snap photos of people in their very happiest moments for a LIVING! All thanks to YOU for believing in my crazy. Tag someone in the comments below who always believes in yours!
This little black box is filled with a beautiful new heirloom. A tradition they have started on the day they say 'I do'. Something special that will stand the test of time and will be passed on with time. What a beautiful thought. If you know me at all you know three things... I like a little pumpkin pie with my whipped cream, I am NOT a morning person and I am extra EXTRA sentimental. Exchanging gifts the morning of the wedding day is a must in my book! What are some of your favorite family heirlooms and traditions?
