The aspens are calling, and I must go 🍂 I'm not sure what happened to me as a child 😂 but I'm obsessed with aspen trees. Maybe it's one of the reasons I'm so obsessed with Colorado. Mountains AND aspen trees 😍😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love the way their leaves change in the fall, obviously. One day, if you're lucky enough to find a mountain with green, yellow, orange, AND red, prepare to have your heart skip a beat 😍The way they forever wave in the wind. Like a bunch of tiny little hands saying hiiiiiiii 👋👋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also love their contrasting bark. The white and the black. Bonus, there are eyes all over their trunks, watching you... Daniel said it's creepy when I said that, but I think it's beautiful. If you can have a perspective that they're watching *over* you instead of, like, a forest of creeps, watching you 😂then it's not so creepy, right??⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have a (maybe some would consider strange) affection for a specific tree or plant? Tell me I'm not the only #treehugger 👇👇
It's been a week since we got back from our Colorado trip & I'm refusing to be down about it! I've SO enjoyed the cooler weather we've had this past week. I've also been working on the pictures I took while there all week AND have changed my phone background to some rocky mountain gorgeousness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've also really appreciated all the feedback from your favorite Texas locations and am very anxious for our @luna_the_airstream to be complete so we can go on our big Tour de Texas 🤩🤩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've got a blog post up filled with some adventurous mishaps Daniel and I got into while on out kid-less trip 😂PLUS some amazing images from this session in @rockynps and from the session I talked my sister & brother-in-law into 💞⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me know if you check out our Colorado adventure and what you think! What sort of shenanigans do you and your boo get into when it's just the two of you?? Let me know in the comments (here OR on the blog)!!!
Being born and raised in Houston, TX with limited outdoor activities and then not exploring other options in the WHOLE state... I think has made me pretty narrow minded about the whole state of Texas. The whole state! 🙈 Gah, I'm embarrassed to admit that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've hated on Texas ever since I went to Colorado in my teens, with Austin being the only exception, haha 🙈 But I've recently learned so much more about Texas and I'm shocked by my narrow-mindedness and have added SEVERAL Texas spots to my bucket list 🤩🤩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ IN FACT: I think Big Bend is going to be @luna_the_airstream 's maiden voyage after we get her back from GA 😃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favorite spot in Texas?? Help me add a few more to the list!
What if you could have your cake and eat it too? 😀🍰😋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you like the idea of a more intimate and less expensive wedding day/elopement, but also want to include family and friends with a fun-filled reception, without the cost?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm a firm believer in having and eating cake. I think if you can slow down & think outside the box enough, there's a way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If having an intimate & stress-free, just you, ceremony experience AND a fun party with friends & family sounds like it fits you. There's a blog post filled with we out of the box ideas on how you can do BOTH. Tag a friend who might find this info useful!! 💕💕
If you didn't know already, I am 100% head over heels in love with mountains and specifically Colorado. Every time we visit I get tears in my eyes at some point or another during our trip 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This time it was on our trip up to RMNP from Avon, CO. We passed through a much of small towns, I think it was Bond, CO. There were people fly fishing on the Colorado River and the water rushing over the pebbles, winding through the aspen covered mountains. Absolutely breathtaking. Daniel and I were both crying 😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I met up with a couple of like-minded photographers at RMNP this weekend. We swapped sessions and had a great time. I love meeting new people and exploring this beautiful world we get to live in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favorite place you've been to? Or dream of going to? 👇👇 Let me know in the comments!
#tbt even though it's Tuesday? Why not? Look at those sweet babes and their loving parents (that red hairrrr), nestled in the only patch of colorful #aspens we found that trip (almost exactly one year ago) 🥰⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Daniel and I are going to start packing for our trip today! The mountains are calling y'all, and I must go... 😂 We're going to COLORADO tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited. The fall foliage is in FULL EFFECT and I'm so damn excited 🤠We've gone at this time twice and have missed it, so I was a little concerned when booking this trip that we'd miss it again. But from the pictures I've seen, it's lookin' good y'all. So. Good. #fallfoliage ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're going to be near Avon the first half of the week and are planning a trip to RMNP the last day before we come back. Lots of pictures are going to happen so prepare for that! Fall will come to Texas even if it's just through pictures on this little IG account 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'll be sure and pack better this trip. Wasn't quite prepared for how cold it was going to be 😅I recently went to the new @duluthtradingcompany and everything there is so functional and stylish!! What's your go-to cold weather/active gear or store?? I'm looking for a couple more things for cold weather hiking! Drop a line for this #southerngirl 👇👇
HAPPY MONDAY! 🥳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If this doesn't brighten up your day, I don't know what to tell you. Hahaha. LOOK AT THAT FACE!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We spent our weekend near San Marcos playing in the river and stayed at this AMAZING glamping spot. My cousin and her son came for one night and then papa joined us for the second night. That river was chilly but it felt great in the sun!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The place we stayed was @wahwahtayseeresort and I would HIGHLY recommend it for an elopement, couple getaway, family getaway, solo getaway... all of the above. Great way to relax and get connected with those you love most 🥰💕
Think back on your life and remember some of your favorite moments. Who were you with? What were you doing?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, most of my favorite moments revolve around friends & family and the outdoors. Some of my most cherished experiences in life were spent in the sun, on a mountain, holding hands with people that I love. And I'd be lying if I said food (and dessert) wasn't involved at some point or another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shouldn't your wedding day be one of your most favorite days to look back on. Obviously you're going to remember your wedding day and have good memories, you married your BFF! But, I hear all too often how stressful, wasteful, and just plain not fun that day was. How heart breaking! Make the day you commit your life to your partner a day worth remembering. Make it 100% YOU.
Did you know the average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is $34k, yes, THIRTY. FOUR. THOUSAND. for one day! And it's not even a full day, it's like, maybe 6-8 hours. What a scam!! 😅🙈😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WHAT IF.... you could go on an amazing adventure, cross some things off your bucket list, AND get married to the love of your life, for less than $34k 🙋♀️🙋♀️ SIGN.ME.UP.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If spending money on monogrammed napkins and a huge venue to fit all of your friends + family (including the distant relatives who don't really know you but you know it would insue some sort of drama is you left them out) is your thing, then by all means, have a traditional wedding. But if spending money on an experience of a lifetime is more your thing... go on an adventure instead, elope. - My main point is: YOU. DO. YOU. BOO. BOO 😘 It's your day, be intentional and live that day in your heart of hearts.⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've done a lot of research lately and haven't found anyone that regrets making the daring decision to elope. With portraits like this, honestly, how could you? 😆🤩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Double tap if you wish you'd eloped or are considering eloping!!
Heyyyyy 👋👋 I'm Sam, and this is me trying to paddle-board in Destin this summer 😂 It was quite the sight y'all. And also the best $60 I've spend in a long time. I love trying new things, although I don't consider myself a (high) risk taker, maybe some would?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't usually like spending much time in the ocean, I have a weird fear of something coming and dragging me under water and drowning (notice, I didn't say shark attacking me) 😅Living so close to Galveston, I'm not used to being able to see so clearly!! I spent nearly the entire trip swimming in the ocean. It was such a blast!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have any irrational fears?? I refuse to believe I'm the only weirdo that doesn't like swimming in water you can see in 😏😅
