What Do I Wear?
It's hard to figure out sometimes, amirite? Wedding photographers, are you with me? You have a unique brand, and a unique style, and somehow you want to combine those things with professionalism. But what does that look like? I'll be starting a little mini series here on the blog sharing some of my favorite outfits for shooting weddings. Hopefully you can gain a little inspiration and maybe even find some great pieces to add to your closet.

I picked up this jumpsuit pretty recently and LOVE it. Target for the win, right? The material is super light and comfy, which is perfect for shooting super toasty outdoor weddings. It lends the right amount of professionalism, while still being fun and subtly colorful. I try to dress is outfits that can blend in with the crowd, that way if you accidentally photobomb a videographer or a family member, you look like just another guest at the wedding. Another must for long days on your feet are comfy shoes. These sandals from Walmart have been a favorite of mine all summer. I picked them up for $10 and they are super duper comfortable. Wearing sandals for Summer weddings is a great way to avoid sweaty, hot misery.

Our Apartment Tour 01.

No 01. 
It's been a good few weeks since the wedding, and Jon and I have had some time to spend arranging the apartment. It's super fun to finally display the pieces I've been collecting from antique and thrift stores all up the East Coast! The space I'm sharing with you today is our coffee bar, and my personal favorite corner of the apartment. Jonathan built this beautiful wood bar for me - he's building custom furniture as a business now, so if you're local and want a unique piece, hit him up! ;)

June was a ca-rayy-zay month. Jon and I were shooting weddings every weekend, some weekends on both Saturday and Sunday, and driving to MN, PA, NY, MD and MA. Most memorable event? Our GPS failed in New York and I got stuck driving through the Bronx and Harlem late at night with Jon navigating via map. Those peeps drive like crazy people!

This month, life has calmed down a bit. I mostly have a lot of smaller shoots like engagements, which has been a relaxing and needed break from June. Most days Jon and I escape to one of the local Lynchburg coffee shops to do work - rough right? If there's no work to do, one of our favorite pass times has been thrift shopping together.

Speaking of which... we got our wedding pictures back! Which means I'll be starting a wedding planning series super soon! Keep an eye out ;)

ROUGH RIDGE
Somewhere off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville NC, is Rough Ridge. It's about a mile hike to the top with some major view payoff. Ashley of Photography Anthology captured these gorgeous engagement shots for Jonathan and I a few weeks ago, and we couldn't be happier with the result. Jonathan and I met hiking. It's an activity that has played a central role in our relationship since day one. Jon proposed to me at the top of a cliff after a hike, so it was only fitting that we found such a place for Ashley to capture our love. 

We are five weeks out until the wedding, and I can hardly believe it. After over a year long engagement, the planning is finally coming together, and it's getting real. Girls, I seriously can't wait to marry this man. He is such a blessing in my life - he makes me laugh daily, and he's my best friend in the whole world. His heart for God moves me - he prays over me and encourages me. Everyday with him is a precious gift.

Without further ado, here is our engagement session! For some extra experience, you can listen to the clip below while you scroll ;). This is a song that really represents Jon and I's relationship for me. It's one that I listened to often when we first started dating.
