Lately, I’ve been been thinking of “planning and organizing”. I used to be so much more organized back during college and I really miss that! I was the girl that needed a purse with compartments, now I just need 1 huge bag to throw everything in! Like what is happening!!! I feel like I need to pause and restart life again, wish it worked that way!! Anyone have any organizing tips that you could share with ya girl? Lemme know!! #happywednesday
Wrapping up this stunning wedding gallery to deliver to Chloe & Luke! It was such an amazing day and I can’t wait for them to enjoy reliving each moment of their beautiful day all over again! It’s one of the biggest galleries I’ve ever delivered with so many precious moments, beautiful details and happy tears! One of my favorites for sure!! What a joy and blessing my job is!! 🤗 #rljphotoweddings
Throwback to last spring 🌸 I love this coat x bag combination. If you live in New England (or anywhere with changing seasons or crazy weather) one of the best investments you can make is in a pretty coat / pretty outer layers. Thoughts??
It’s been almost two months without a TV. When we moved into our new house, we decided not to set it up and see if we could get through the summer without it. - it’s crazy the things you find yourself doing instead of sitting on the couch binging Netflix Mon-Fri nights after work. I feel like I’m a kid again in the 90s, spending my evenings outside. Playing, exploring nature, getting sweaty, getting dirty, getting sun burnt, spending quality time with my husband, cooking meals every night, playing nerdy card games, laying on the rug with my husband doing absolutely nothing but relaxing. It’s been amazing. And good for the soul. - the real test will be when winter comes and most outdoor activities stop. Maybe we’ll bring the tv back, maybe we won’t. We will see! 😳

Crazy what all this sun is doing to my hair! 😍
I’m on the blog today using new @hellobluebird.stamps
release! Stop by for details on how I used Fishin’ Hole and Pond Builder sets. This is my first card.
Oh hey! It’s been a couple days. How’s it going? Busy doing the Army thing, what about you? What’s new in your world?
How easy is this tablescape?! I love the citrus trend this year! Slice it all up and you get a lush splash of summery color. 🍋 🍊#lemonparty #lemons
Looking at this painting just makes me happy, which could actually be why I named it "Giddy" 😋🤔 I'm curious:
Art makers out there - Are the names of your pieces intentional, unintentional, or a little mix of both sometimes? .
Art buyers - Do the names of the pieces have an impact on your love of the piece?
I'd say when I name a painting, it's both sometimes. There are pieces that remind me of a certain feeling or phrase and it just fits the piece. There are other names and phrases that I think sound cool (I have a running list actually) that I pull from to best name some pieces. 💫 They're fun and whimsy so if a painting fits something in my list of fun name ideas, well then by golly - match made in heaven. 😇
When I buy art, I'd say that the name is not a make or break but it can help push me to the purchase. Certain names can resonate with me or spark a connection and that can leave an impression on me and aid in my decision making. ❤️
“Find JOY in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home. It’s your responsibility to love it, or change it.” ✨
When I first started in the wedding industry, I had a clear vision of my WHY. I wanted to work with amazing people, create unique designs, and bring a fresh approach to wedding planning. The joy and passion I had creating my first logo, booking my first couple, designing my FIRST wedding was palpable. 🙌🏻
Fast forward 5 years and I sometimes feel more of the stress, demands, drama, and hustle bustle of what I do than the JOY. It’s easy to lose sight of your WHY as your business grows, you get more press, book more clients, and inevitably, have to deal with managing more work and problems. 🙈
I recently sat down with a mentor of mine in the industry who said it so well. She said “I can’t believe I get paid to do this job, but sometimes I can’t believe how little I get paid to do this job.” Whenever I start to feel the latter, I pause to reflect and find joy again. Picking up the latest copy of MN Bride and admiring all the gorgeous work, scrolling through Pinterest, saying YES to an inspiring project or photo shoot, or designing something amazing for a client that I love. These are all things that refresh my soul and bring me JOY in my work. ♥️
How do you find joy in what you do?
Savor the simple things in life. Like flowers and that perfect textured white wall for instagram shots. #blogbossbabe

Have I mentioned I live to shoot purply, grey beach days? Are you down with a not-so-sunny day every once in a while?

My heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She’s seen me at my highest high and my lowest lows. She’s held me down. Listened to me cry “baby thug tears.” She’s supported and encouraged me through so much sh**!
Get you a HER.

I absolutely love the quote that @thewelldesk
shared today: “The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness. Mindfulness means being awake. It means knowing what you are doing”. - Jon Kabat-Zinn
Happy Wedding Wednesday!! September and James’ beautiful big day is live on the blog this morning!! Link to the blog is in my profile. #storytoldphoto #storytoldbride
There is no limit to how radiant, alive and irresistible you can be 💎❤
It may be 105 degrees right now but my days have been filled with fall season for all my September, October and November brides. I’m in love with all the muted pinks, dusty blues and deep burgundies that are being used in this year’s fall wedding color palettes. I also can’t get over Amanda and Jeremy’s puppy, Scout, who is an integral part of their Pippin Hill wedding by popping up in all their wedding paper goods. Their guests will find Scout in the RSVP card, welcome boxes, stickers and napkins. 🐶 Round of applause for @bacon.me.crazy
for making sure this suite was captured so well!
