Couple Photo Taking Guide: How-to and Gear!

Hello traveling lovebirds, or maybe just friends! I debated a while on whether or not to do this post. But ever since our Joshua Tree trip, the majority of you guys are curious as to how Kevin and I get our couple photos when we travel. And the answer is – we hire a photographer when we travel and the poor guy just follows us around all day. JUST KIDDING! Although occasionally we meet a kind stranger with a good eye. The reality is that I have gear that I bring with me when we travel to be able to capture our photos the way I want them. I’ll post the gear I used when I first started out since not everyone will have a mirrorless or DSLR like I do. Camera: I currently shoot with the Sony A7rii with the 24-70mm lens HOWEVER! When I first started off I just…

Bride Squad Proposal Boxes

When I first started shopping around for items to put in my bridesmaid proposal boxes I was stumped and didn’t know what to get at all. So as a starting point – I used travel and Bali as my theme. And as a general rule of thumb I like to always make sure I’m gifting something I would love receiving myself. And bonus points if it’s something useful! my gorgeous squad! What I included in my Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes What is the biggest part of these goodies? The box of course! I found these glass boxes on the knot wedding shop that were PERFECT! I chose not to get them personalized because I like things low key. They would work great as jewelry boxes or displays once they took the boxes home. You can get them at The Knot Shop here. If you like a more natural look you can…

Ring Shopping: Here’s what I learned

On July 28th I said yes to the love of my life. And on that day I also gladly said goodbye to the days of poring over ring accounts on instagram, reading about what the four C’s were and which were the most important. For all of you lovebirds out there ready to take the next step with your boo, here’s what I learned from my ring shopping experience. I’m picky(ish) – I now know that I am low key (ok I’m high key) picky and I wanted a style that most jewelry stores do not have in store to show (oval shaped). If your lady has specific taste, I HIGHLY suggest going to at least one jewelry store together at least get an idea of what she likes and doesn’t like. Why? Because my ring looks very different from what I imagined I wanted. Many girls I know have…

Tips & Tools to Bring Into 2019!

2018 is over everyone! But super excited to dive in to 2019 and the adventures that lie ahead. This year I realized that the older I get, the more I want to live an inspired life. And this year I learned that inspiration comes from going through hardship and challenges. In my birthday post this year I mentioned that 2018 started off pretty rough. But as the year went on, I discovered more about myself. I am proud to look back at 2018 say honestly that I wouldn’t do anything differently. It was truly a year of living by faith, and not by sight. Looking forward… Every year end I tell myself that in the upcoming year I will improve more, work harder and always push boundaries for fear of becoming stagnant. But moving forward into 2019 I want to be mindful of myself and remember that good always comes…

Twenty Seven: Love and Challenges

Moving further into my latter 20s and I wonder if I’m getting to old to announce my age like this. But honestly – it’s just a number right? Twenty seven onto twenty eight is not so bad, and spending it in the Bahamas is even better! So let’s break down year twenty seven. LEHGO! My mindset going into twenty seven was – DAMN! I better get more accomplished this year compared to year twenty six. I mentioned in my post last year I struggled with feeling challenged and accomplished the beginning of 26. But luckily pulled it together in the second half. And wanted this to be a productive year! Well as they say, be careful what you wish for. I started the year dealing with two huge emotional hurdles one after the other. (Just want to add here that I hope you all know that social media is only…
