“Sometimes I’ll start a sentence and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way.” - Michael Scott ⠀ -⠀ Sometime that’s exactly how running a small business feels. You’ll have a clear direction and then suddenly it’s like “wait... what’s going on?!” We start things because we feel inspired and motivated, but those feeling can quickly fade away when it doesn’t go according to plan.⠀ -⠀ Sometimes it’s so hard not to blur the line of professional and personal disappointment when you’re the face of your “brand”. The haze of uncertainty comes in and you start to function in a place of desperation instead of inspiration and clarity. ⠀ -⠀ The best piece of advice I’ve received is this - when it gets hard don’t make critical decisions when you feel really low! Have your game plan set and strong in advance. When those season come you won’t be shaken and can focus on your WHY until it feels like the sun is shining again! ✨⠀
This cozy Airbnb engagement session just made me want to have a stay-cation and watch Disney+ all day! ⠀ -⠀ My favorite way to decompress is by doing nothing - absolutely nothing. The best days are on the couch with Jacob going down YouTube rabbit holes laughing until we cry.. or crying until we laugh. Either way it’s cozy and our favorite way to spend time together. Same? Or No?
Yes and amen to personal vows! Your ceremony will be that much sweeter to look back on. Trust me - everyone will love it. Just pay no attention to me as I cry softly while shooting your ceremony. ⠀ - ⠀ If you’re hiring a videographer, which you totally should, it makes your wedding video even more sweet and sentimental. 💕⠀ -⠀ Venue: @ilmercato⠀ Live Painter: @torregrossa.art | Fine Art & Live Painting⠀⠀ Catering: @joelcatering ⠀ Ceremony Music: Nola String Quarter⠀ Band: The Phunky Monkeys ⠀ Cake: @swisscakesnola ⠀ Rentals: @distressedrentals ⠀⠀ Florist: @bellabloomsfloral ⠀ Groomscake: @bittersweetnola ⠀ Makeup: @ashleysievertbeauty⠀ Hair: Lindsey, L&CO.

I’ve been a little MIA because last week was bananas - lots and lots of editing, #sundayservice on Friday at Bethany Crosses, and one amazing wedding with @amandapriceevents. ⠀ -⠀ I never thought it my wildest dreams I would be less than 50 feet away from Kanye West and his kids! If you were there, then you know how amazing it was! So insane and so grateful to witness it! ⠀ -⠀ It’s a new week, we all have a lot to get done, but let’s not forget to stop and smell the pumpkin spice lattes people! ⠀
