Palm Springs vacation vibes. 🌴😎✌🏼 • So thankful for time to relax, refresh, and recharge these few days with our little family. Also planning on talking about and writing out our plans and goals to live an intentional and purposeful life. But as always, it’s a good thing to write them out in pencil and not in pen because you never know what God has in store just around the corner. ✨
From this past weekend’s wedding per the groom’s request. 🎩 #abbeyroad
Ice cream, how I love thee! Especially if you’re from @mcconnellsicecreams and are the chocolate covered strawberry or banana salted caramel type. 🍓🍌🍦 Happy National Ice Cream Day friends!
Heading out today to capture two beautiful people and their ‘I Do’s’. Here’s a checklist of my three essentials: Equipment ✔️ Timeline ✔️ Lots of yummy snacks ✔️ Ok, let’s go out there and capture life and love! ❤️
Back at it tomorrow with another wedding and I’m so excited to celebrate and capture such a special time for my couple! 👰🏻 Tomorrow’s couple actually graduated from the same college I graduated from and is getting married at the same place hubby and I got married 9 years ago. It’s definitely going to bring back memories photographing at the same exact spot we said ‘I Do’. Who wouldn’t thought that 9 years later, I’d be back photographing someone else’s ‘I Do’?! And after Saturday is done, I would have photographed 2 weddings and 7 engagement sessions in 13 days. Whew! I may or may not have overdosed on @starbucks iced caramel macchiatos in the process. ☕️🙈 • Planner: @heatherbengeevents Venue: @themuckenthalermansion Flowers: @intrigueteaches Makeup: @lipglamartistry Hair: @mmarichi88 Stationary: @plumeandfete Linens: @nuagedesignsinc Bridesmaids dresses: @weddingtonway Cake: @nicolebakescakes Paper Artist: @sylhouettesbysilvia Catering: @colettescatering Coordination assistant: @alexievents_u.s.a Ring Box: @the_mrs_box
Who else loves food as much as I do? 🙋🏻♀️ Annnndddd that’s why I started @myfitnesspal yesterday. 🤦🏻♀️ But I’ve come to realize that what you eat makes a HUGE difference in how you feel. And I don’t know about you but I need all the energy I can get. It’s been a while since I’ve used @myfitnesspal but it’s so good to stop and think about the things you put in your mouth-especially for someone who mindlessly eats and snacks like I do. 🙈 Have any of you used that app? If so, what are your thoughts? • Planner: @heatherbengeevents Venue: @themuckenthalermansion Flowers: @intrigueteaches Makeup: @lipglamartistry Hair: @mmarichi88 Stationary: @plumeandfete Linens: @nuagedesignsinc Bridesmaids dresses: @weddingtonway Cake: @nicolebakescakes Paper Artist: @sylhouettesbysilvia Catering: @colettescatering Coordination assistant: @alexievents_u.s.a Ring Box: @the_mrs_box
Cheers to love, a new journey, and these two getting ready to say their ‘I Do’s’ in a few weeks! ✨ (And cheers to capturing so much happiness that couples in love have during their engagement sessions! ❤️)
Ain’t this the truth?! 👆🏼And please tell me I’m not the only one that needs to plaster this all over so I can see it all the time as a reminder. 🙈
I photograph beautiful weddings that are filled with the kindest of couples but there’s much more about me that goes on behind the scenes. I’m a wife and a mommy to three little humans that hold our hearts and keep us on our toes. ❤️ And although it’s the standard to only post edited and filtered images on your photography page, I think it’s also good for others to see the heart behind the work in a real and raw way. It’s imperfect, it’s messy, but it’s amazing. So I’ll be sprinkling simple but wholehearted images of what goes on behind the scenes over here on my end. They’ll mainly be taken on my iPhone instead of my professional camera because when you live in the moment, it doesn’t matter what format an image was taken as long as it was taken. So for now, here’s what a real life moment looks like for me: the sweetest little girl with the scariest Elsa doll. 😬😂
Oh Monday, I actually like you. Well, most of the times. Today has me checking emails, scheduling sessions, arranging wedding day photography timelines, and sending out a gorgeous engagement session from last week. 👩🏻💻 There’s a lot of things I’ll be doing in between (like making PB&J sandwiches for the kids and recovering from a bad haircut 💇🏻 🤦🏻♀️) but for now I hope you all have a productive week!
