OKAAAY NOW LAAADDDIIIIEEESSSSS, IF YOU KNOW YOU BADDDD. . This past weekend in Oahu was a DREAM! 🌊 When @wthmitch first inquired with me, she responded within MINUTES and booked me within less than 24 hours. Then, she invited Brandon and to her engagement party. I showed up thinking I was going to feel random since I didn't really know anyone, but Michelle yelled my name and ran across the room to hug me the second I showed up. She introduced Brandon and I to all her friends and family, making us feel right at home. Shortly after that, she invited me to her bachelorette party in Oahu! Usually, I feel like it would be weird to agree to go on a trip with someone that you have only hung out with for 3 hours, but it felt like Michelle and I had been friends our whole lives, so duh I said yes. . Michelle gives SO MUCH love to every single person she meets, and has gained some of the most supportive, caring, funny, and genuine people to stand beside her on her big day. It was an honor to help pour that all back on her this weekend with her bridesmaids! All of the ladies who came out to her bachelorette are SOLID GOLD, and I love every single one of them so much. I went on this trip barely knowing anyone, and I walked away with so many new friends and plenty of crazy memories to go along with it. As my first bachelorette party ever, this one is going to be really hard to top!! . I can't wait to see everyone in 39 DAYS!! . #MichellesLastLei #LEEvePeterAtHome
That moody window light tho 👌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friendly reminder I'm in Oahu this week and I'm going to suck at emails. Get back to you as soon as I can! I have 3 back to back weddings the week I return, and just a crazy month in general (7 weddings lol) so all of your patience in September is really appreciated. 🙌🏻
I recently finished some podcasts and I wanted to share my thoughts on 3 of them in case someone was looking for a new listen!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something Was Wrong – This was recommended to me through a poll in my story, and it's a suuuuper good listen! It's an insane story about a girl who was engaged to a guy who ended up being a horrible person. The story is based in the Bay Area, and I think it's even more fun listening to some local drama haha. The audio quality in the first few episodes was a little meh (which almost made me stop listening) but it gets better and the story gets crazier!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ S Town – another rec from my poll! This podcast was really good but in a weird way haha. It's about a small Shit Town in Alabama, and a guy calls a reporter to investigate a case. But then something wild and unexpected happens! (But no spoilers lol) It gives you an interesting look into what it's like to live in a small town and the kind of people you might meet there. I love listening to podcasts that give you different insights and perspectives of people + places we don't experience on the daily.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Clearing – I feel like this had potential to be really good because it's a true story about a woman who discovers her father was a murderer, but I honestly couldn't get through it because the guy's voice is so monotone hahah. I kept thinking about other things and forget that I was even listening to it. So that was a bummer! 🤷🏼♀️😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And those are my recommendations! Have you listened to any of those!? I'd love to hear what you thought about them!!
Leaving for Oahu in two days ayyyyeeee 🏝
Let's talk about props! Props can be fun + unique to you as a couple, and they don't have to be cheesy. I know you're probably throwing up in your head over those chalkboard signs that were all over Pinterest at one point, but I'm here to inspire you to find cool stuff that's meaningful to you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨3 FUN PROP IDEAS ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🥂Literally any kind of food or drinks (and please bring me some extra cause ya girl LOVES snacks hahah) I've had couples bring champagne to pop for photos, and for drinking. Tip! Bring more than one bottle. Other's have brought a little picnic with cheeses and meats and cute little plates. I love it every single time!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏍If you have a cool motorcycle or scooter that you both like to ride around on, bring it!!! At a wedding, one of my couples got married in their backyard and we got their motorcycle out to do some portraits with! They were pretty badass if I do say so myself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐶 Your freaking dog. If you're not bringing your dog to your session, I'll be so sad. So just do it, thanks. Tip! Bring a friend to hang out with your dog, so we can take some pics of just the two of you, you don't have to worry about what your furry friend is doing the whole entire session. You should be focused on taking photos!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What fun prop ideas do you guys have!? 👇🏻
