We are officially on the road for what I’ve been calling our “MYSTERY TRIP.” Vincent planned this entire trip and kept the whole thing a surprise for me! I’ve been guessing in my head where we could possibly be going and what fun thing (that required him to buy tickets in advance) we are doing!!!! ⠀ ⠀ Oh, I just love the thrill of a good surprise ✨💕🌙⠀ ⠀ Tell me what YOUR guess is! IM SO EXCITED!!!!! Can’t contain myself!! 💟 🗺 ⠀
I'm glad you've stuck around to hear my little announcement because I AM BEYOND EXCITED! ⠀ ⠀ Today I get to announce my new website! In the past few weeks, it's gotten a nice little revamp where I've dug deep and really gotten in touch with what represents me most. Turns out there are a few key elements that make my style what it is: ⠀ ⠀ 1. Genuine Laughter. I feel like the thing that we do most (in real life) with our partner is laugh. Like major giggles all day, every day with the love of our life. So I can't imagine trying to produce work that represents any couple without some genuine, BIG laughs. Turns out, I can't get enough of them either!⠀ ⠀ 2. Boho Vibes. This one gets to my upbringing, my personal style, and how I live my life. I've never fit in with the more conventional crowd but I've also never minded that! I enjoy being who I am and I've also enjoyed getting to know my little tribe out there in the world along my way. Although bohemian fashion goes in and out of style periodically, I can never get enough of it 100% of the time. And even beyond style, I truly find it a lifestyle that comes naturally to me. When I think about where I fit in in the wedding world, a laid-back, outdoor, boho wedding just seems like the dreamiest fit for me!⠀ ⠀ 3. Stunning natural scenery. I feel so inspired outdoors and I think nature is a part of all of us. I enjoy documenting that connection in my art and only accept outdoor weddings and elopements because I know that is where I feel the most inspired. We all know I love to travel (and so do all of my couples!) and experiencing new and amazing landscapes is one of the major reasons why! ⠀ ⠀ 4. Emotional Moments. Oh, where do I even start here?!? This is ouch-y town (but in a good way!) There is something about capturing, in a still, what someone was feeling. These photos mean the most to me and all those happy tears WRECK ME!! So they hang out on my site to make me cry, apparently.⠀ ⠀ Well, there you have it! I've revamped my little home on the interenet to match these core values! I hope you love it and please, PLEASE let me know what you think in the comments! ⠀ ⠀ www.jonibilderback.com + link in bio
Any last guesses? You'll be finding out TOMORROW what I've got up my sleeve! ⠀ ⠀ ✨💟✨
I've been working HARD on a little project behind the scenes... can you guess what it is?!? ⠀ ⠀ Hint: it's a little bit techy and a lot a bit boho ✨💟✌🏼
We are spending the 4th (or the 3rd really) with some live music, food trucks, and fireworks 🎇 Hope you all enjoy your holiday! ⠀ ⠀ Ps. Check out these two hotties on the blog!! ⠀ ⠀ http://bit.ly/turkeyrunsession + link in bio⠀ ⠀ #GrowingOldsTogether
I'm currently navigating my way through a journey focused on balance rather than perfection. I may not be a perfectionist in a conventional way (because I'm a bit of an unconventional soul✌🏼), but I am CERTAINLY an unrealistic idealist. I have so many visions of what my life, my business, and my loved ones could be. This dreamer side of me can be great because I can believe wholeheartedly in my people (and myself) and go after some amazing stuff... but it can also bite me in my big booty because, like I said, IT'S UNREALISTIC! ⠀ ⠀ So I'm trying to find that balance of living out my self-improvement projects, business dreams, and helping others be who they want to be while also having realistic goals, accepting cheat days with open arms, and loving myself no matter what. ⠀ ⠀ Some days I don't think I know what balance really is (what is the true formula??), others I feel like I'm about to get blown off the rock I'm standing on by outside forces and some I'm just discouraged enough to think I'll never hop back on again. What I've really learned throughout this process is that balance isn't a destination -- but a CONSTANT journey. (ohhhh cheesy 😂) (but also true!!) ⠀ ⠀ Through meditation, I've realized how many of it's concepts apply to everyday life. Nothing you do equals failure (or even success, really), it's just the way things are and always will be. Life will ebb and flow between getting back in the saddle and falling off the horse. You just have to go with the flow without judgment towards either!
“Our beginning probably didn’t start like most. We were both experiencing some of the lowest points in our lives... ⠀ ⠀ Maegan shared their story with me and it had me in tears. It reminded me that when you go through the hardest thing imaginable with the right person by your side you both come out of it fused in a way that just can't be matched. The strength these two have as a pair is admirable! ⠀ ⠀ Sadness would overwhelm me a lot – as anyone who has experienced such a tragedy. But at the same time, I would become overwhelmed with a calmness, a warmth, and a feeling that everything would genuinely be okay.⠀ ⠀ Read the whole story on the blog! ⠀ ⠀ http://bit.ly/lakemonroesession + Link in bio
So, this Lake Monroe Engagement Session was a new adventure for me! We went out on a BOAT and were chauffeured around by Maegan’s awesome parents! Maegan pretty much grew up on the lake so this was the perfect way to experience her engagement session. We even stopped by Maegan’s longtime dream wedding spot. I’m so happy we were able to spend this fun day together!⠀ ⠀ Check out their session on the blog!!⠀ ⠀ http://bit.ly/lakemonroesession + Link in bio⠀ ⠀ @thewildsvenue
