B4rOvnPJ24X It has been such an incredible fall season, and it just keeps getting better weekend after weekend. 2019 is almost wrapped as the last leaves fall from trees. Today was one for the books. Can’t wait to share more. #morningwildphotography #morningwild #myeiseronyou

B4h1nQlJ8oJ I’ve been going and going and going for the past few months, and today we’re finally going to resume our Sabbath practice. We take the day off of technology, work, chores, cooking to breathe and spend time as a family. If you’ve never taken a Sabbath, I strongly recommend it! It’s amazing how restorative a day of unplugging can be. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B4VU6OgJg-P It’s been awhile since I’ve shown my face around here. Thought I’d make a little game out of #fridayintroduction. Here are two truths about me and one lie. The first person to guess the lie gets a $20 credit to my print shop (or their wedding gallery). //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 1. I’ve flown a plane before. 2. I’ve travelled to all 50 states. 3. I’ve camped with the Maasai tribe in Kenya. Go! @Thankss @juliawade for this image). ———————————————————————-For all of you who guessed, the correct lie is 2! When I interned for @lauragriertravel, she surprised me and took me on a prop plane. The pilot let me drive for a minute or so, which was terrifying. After college, I spent 6 weeks between Uganda + Kenya. One of the nights in Kenya was spent camping in the valley with the Maasai tribe. I just remember being told to not leave the tent alone at night because there was a risk of being attacked by lions 😱. I’ve been to almost all of the states except 7-10 (still need to check off Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, The Dakotas, and Nebraska. I believe I’ve traveled through Mississippi, Arkansas, and Utah but haven’t truly “been” there).

B3065VDJlbp I almost didn’t ask them to step outside in the rain again because it was pouring and freezing. I didn’t have a second with me to help balance umbrellas + light stands, but I saw these bright parking lights and knew they could make something special. Thankfully Patty and Ben are the type of couple that will dance in the rain, even in their wedding clothes. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

I’m looking forward to slower days for a bit, but I always get a little stir crazy. I want to take on a new creative project for the winter. What should it be? #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B45mue9J8Cv By far this was one of my favorite moments of the day. Beth and Bryant requested the last song of the night to be completely private. As guests lined up outside for sparklers, they took the full five minutes of “Harvest Moon” to soak it all in. With tears in their eyes, I saw them relish in the moment. I tried not to linger too long because I wanted to give them time truly alone. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B42dh4kJ34F Maybe this image looks simple, but it required having someone drive Beth + Bryant across the property, using a radio to direct, running late to the reception, and the light fading quickly. Despite all of that, I’m still glad we made this image happen. The views at @theridgeavl are absolutely divine. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B40HBotJvOe Fall is finally here, and the chill feels like it’s here to stay. Even though October is one of the most popular months for weddings, November is actually the fall month that I look forward to in the Carolinas. It tends to be a quieter month and the leaves show off the most in town. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

They planned a beautiful wedding at the @thencarboretum in early October, and we were welcomed with a sunny, albeit hot fall day. They included their beautiful Bernese Mountain dog in their celebrations, and it was extra special to have him around.

B4P9n4rJVJw I find myself always falling in between wide open spaces and cities. I love being close to culture, food, art, and people. I also adore the quiet sounds of nature, the mountains, and the solitude of being removed from it all. We’ve tossed the idea around of moving outside of the city to have more space (and save $$), but then I instantly miss the proximity to everything. If you live in a more remote place, tell me more. Is it worth it? Do you miss the city? #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B4Lt02HpwMC Truth: we were running behind schedule in this moment, but these glowy wildflowers were calling to me in this insane light. I think it was worth it. My favorite wedding vendors are the ones that serve the couple and not the schedule. No day runs perfectly on time, and it’s not meant to. Your guests won’t know the timeline or that cake cutting is starting five minutes later than planned. Take those extra five minutes to yourselves to relish in the day together. (thank you @thewholeshebangevents for being super chill :)) #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B396lZ5JOMo Patty + Ben put off wedding planning for a bit after her dad was diagnosed with cancer. Most of Patty’s family still lives in Brazil, including her dad. Thankfully, he’s a fighter and was able to make the long journey last weekend to celebrate his daughter’s wedding. Patty told me that he doesn’t speak much English, but he does love Queen. They danced to “Love of My Life,” and everyone had tears in their eyes as they slowly savored the moment. I’m sure it was one they weren’t sure they’d be able to experience two years prior. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

He was wearing 20 year-old yard clothes, but it’s one of my favorite moments. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

It was incredibly special to explore a place that has become so meaningful to them both. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B3jDc_cJnRa The moment Sam saw Breea, he completely lost it. I adore when couples get lost in the moment and truly let go to be present.

B3Xk2yap25W This time of year I always feel like a failure. I’m knee-deep in editing, emails, travel, and so many little things that should have been done two weeks ago. I have to remind myself again and again to take it one day at a time. Breathe. Take a break. I set an intention to be better about balancing my weeks in the fall. No matter how much work was on my plate, I was going to make sure to take days off to spend with my family during my favorite time of year. I was going to schedule yoga + meditation regularly to find peace during a time of stress and overwhelm. There have been weeks where I’ve done this well and others when my self-care has faltered. I’m sharing this so that I can remember to give myself grace when I feel like I should be doing more. In whatever season you are in, I hope you can do the same. We’re all doing the best we can. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

Mondays are always my “get sh*t done days.” Its the day when I work through everything I don’t want to do (bookkeeping, emails, errands) so that I can focus on more creative projects for the rest of the week.

As we all stopped to catch our breath, it was stolen again by this view. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

I’ve watched the temperatures quickly drop to 18° and cannot believe that our friends at home are posting photos in their swimsuits. This light might look warm and dreamy, but it was 40° with 20-30 mph winds. Crystal + Pat are troopers.

Although, I keep reminding myself that every pregnancy is different. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve changed a few of my ways since Sawyer. I haven’t had coffee in weeks, I’ve tried to keep up with my water in take, and even though it’s so hard, I try and work out. ⁣ ⁣ I hope in the next three weeks I get my energy back 🙏🏻 but for now I’m taking it day by day. When my body needs rest, I rest. When it needs food, I eat. I’m just forever grateful we get to do this again. ⁣ ⁣ And I’ll get back to the gram very soon. I’ve truly just been napping my life away.

B2xmj6KpnGw It’s been a whirlwind weekend with 1 elopement, 1 wedding, 4 sessions, 2 plane trips, and 18 hours of driving. However, the chaos is 1000% worth it, and I truly enjoyed every minute with every family this weekend. Meredith’s family has been through so much this year. Her brother has been battling brain cancer, and her dad has been ill + dealing with aphasia. This moment with these people was such a light after such a rough year. Even with aphasia, her dad clearly kept saying “wow! wow! wow!” as he saw her for the first time in her dress. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2agM6_JqAQ Today was my last Saturday off until November, so we made it a good one. Brunch, shopping, ice-cream, and biking with our new toddler trailer. Kitt loved it, and we enjoyed getting back on our bikes after a several year hiatus. I’m taking a deep breath because I know the next month is going to be intense, wonderful, busy, sleepless, and full of beauty. NYC is next week, followed by California! Cannot wait. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2UShC_pZNl Renée and Lou suffered some awful losses this year. Shortly before they started wedding planning, Lou’s mom passed away. Two months before the wedding day, Renée unexpectedly lost both of her parents. As I looked out into the crowd while they exchanged vows, I saw tears in almost every person’s eyes. Their community held them up during such a trying time, and their wedding was a beautiful celebration of making it to that day. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2SgzcKJDqA I have a couple of boudoir sessions scheduled over the next couple of weeks, and I love how my subjects incorporate elements that match their style. Some relax better surrounded by nature. Others feel more inspired by interesting design + furniture. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2PmAYQpgRj I'm excited to introduce you all to my fall intern, Amelia! The day we met in person, we were followed by a rainbow and an epic sunset, so we both thought that was a sign of good things to come. More about her on the blog (link in profile). #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2Nr2XQpzPU With the wind whipping our faces and a windchill probably below 0º, we hiked around Loveland pass, taking in the drastic valley covered in snow. Earlier that week, Patrick had surgery on his leg, and he was a trooper limping around on icy snow. #morningwild

B2K8kGOJXvK If there's one thing I'm reminded of whenever I'm awake with Kitt at 6:30a is that there is magic in the morning. The beauty lies in the transition of when the stars trade with the sun. #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2FJytqJUvM I'm partial to Appalachia, but the Rockies come in a close second for one of my favorite places on earth. We're starting to talk about our bucket list for travel next year. Where should we go? #morningwild #morningwildphotography

B2CHaSnJs7X It felt like we were on another planet at over 10,000 feet. After exploring as much as we could with the elements, we drove down the pass to find food + drinks to warm our chill. I could have spent hours with these two because they felt like old friends. #morningwild #morningwildphotography
