I love my job. I love it more than words and I wouldn’t trade it for the anythin
I love my job. I love it more than words and I wouldn’t trade it for the anything. Seriously, not for anything. But it’s not always easy. Sure, in the world of instagram it looks glamorous and if you have seen any of my reception dancing videos on my stories, you know I do like to have a good time. But there is a whole lot that goes on behind the scenes to get to those fun parts. - I have spent countless hours on education to keep growing and to keep learning and still sometimes feel like I am "not quite there". I have spent time away from my family traveling and driving all over the country, sleeping on airplanes and on couches and adjusting my allergies each time I go to a new place 👈🏻so glamorous. I have worked my ass of to market, be present on social media, build a clientele, edit allllll of the images, email, call, email some more - all while trying to be present with my family and eat somewhat healthy. Y'all, its hard and I have worked hard to be here but it’s still so, so worth it.

"Don't climb over the rope", they said. "You can see perfectly from back here", they said. - Me: "Nah, ill be careful" - My fearlessness can get me into trouble a lot, but I would much rather live my life to the fullest than life in fear. - But seriously, I promise I will be careful. - 📷@jessicaalvarado55

Raise your hand if you have ever thought that you couldn't have an epic wedding
Raise your hand if you have ever thought that you couldn't have an epic wedding or elopement in Texas because its just "not as pretty" as Iceland, the West Coast or Hawaii? 🙋🏼‍♀️Let me tell you, from experience, that it's just not true at all. I mean, Texas is one of the biggest states in the US, and if you don't believe me, just try driving across it. 8 hours in you'll think "are we STILL in TEXAS??" There is plenty of epicness here and I have made it one of my many missions to find those places, because there's adventure to be had everywhere and making things epic is a choice.

Happy Friday friends! This little app has connected me with so many amazing people. So many times social media gets shit on because of it taking away our ability to live in the present or to actually connect with humans, but it can also be such an incredible way to meet people and make actual human connections too. In fact, it's through instagram and facebook that I met my two BPF's (best photo friends - and I definitely stole that term from @valerielendvayphoto) @leahnicolephotography@taylorelizabethphoto@aliminetree@rowanbrouillet These ladies are everything to me and we have really only known each other for less than two years 👈🏻but it feels like forever. So, thanks to you Insta! - Who here has met their favorite people on insta? Tell me your stories 👇🏻 - #beachwedding#beachelopement#elopementphotographer#elopement#elopements#adventurouswedding#adventurewedding#adventureweddingphotographer#adventureelopement#bohowedding#smallwedding#elopementwedding#elope#mountainwedding#desertwedding#outdoorwedding#patagonia#neverstopexploring#goatworthy#rei1440project#optoutside#texaselopement#adventureelopement

Why is it that fear holds up back from so many amazing things? For me I think it is most definitely the fear of failure and the fear of being judged. But guess what? People are judging me anyway. They judge the way I look, the way that I parent, the way that I edit my images... it's inevitable because it is just what it is. So why should I let the judgements of other hold me back from what makes me happy? EVEN if I fail at it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, a while back I decided to stop giving any fucks about it and do exactly what I wanted and go for the big, wild dreams that I imagined. From my failures has come learning opportunities and from any judgements from others I continue to find out who I am and how to love myself more and more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS: give it a try, its very freeing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #austinwedding#austinweddingvenue ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #austin#austintx#atx#austinphotographer#austinweddingphotographer#seattleweddingphotographer#dallasweddingphotographer#utahweddingphotographer#texas#texasphotographer#texaswedding#elopement#elopementphotographer#intimatewedding#intimateweddingphotographer#elope#elopement#destinationweddingphotographer#destinationelopement#destinationwedding#adventureweddingphotographer

I think motherhood has given me adult-ADD. My ability to focus on one thing has diminished SO MUCH since having my girls. Like, I hear about people bingeing shows while editing and I'm like "how??" Literally the only thing I can watch while working is Friends, and thats just because I have seen it one million times. I just can't. I can't do two things at once. - How about you? How do you multitask?

I stopped on the stairs, hundreds of steps above the ground, heart beating fiercely to take a quick shot of my feet. At this point this was possible the most adrenaline filled adventure that I had been on and it sparked something in me. "this is it" I thought, if I can do this for the rest of my life and get paid for it I will have made it. Little did I know that there would be so many more wild sessions and elopements to follow. Y'all, this fills my cup, I cannot even begin tot explain it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cut to a couple of years later in Texas, we've moved back to our home state and I am still always on the hunt for where my free-spirited-adrenaline-junkie-life will take me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nationalparkwedding#nationalparkelopement#elopementphotographer#elopement#elopements#adventurouswedding#adventurewedding#adventureweddingphotographer#adventureelopement#bohowedding#smallwedding#elopementwedding#elope#mountainwedding#desertwedding#outdoorwedding#patagonia#neverstopexploring#goatworthy#rei1440project#optoutside#texaselopement#adventureelopement

Hey guys! It’s me! Just in case you didn’t know what my face looked like 😂 I know it’s typical to do a Friday introduction but how about a Monday version? - Here’s some things I LOVE about Monday’s: 👌🏻 it really feels like a new, fresh start for me. Like I can get stuff done and hit the ground running every Monday with a clean slate 👍🏻 I always have lots of groceries in the house on Monday (before the kids have had a chance to eat them all) 🙌🏻the new start to the week means that I have a whole week to accomplish what I want to get done ✌🏻I am typically well rested come Monday morning since I’ve gotten to sleep in for the whole weekend 👉🏻 And lastly, Monday is full of positivity and potential. It feels like there is so much to look forward to on a Monday - What’s your favorite thing about Mondays? Come on, I know you have at least one 👇🏻 - 📸 @kirstenhollidayphoto#girlswhohike#elopementdress#smallwedding#elopementwedding#elope#elopement#elopementweddingphotographer#elopementinspiration#alternativeweddingphotographer#gettingmarried2020#elopementplanner#eloping#travelcouple#earthcouples#globecouples#travelustcouples#coupletravelgoals#travelcouplelife#couplesthattravel#travellingcouple#travelingcouples#adventuretogether#adventurecouple#coupleswhohike#hikingcouple#outdoorcouple

I lived the military life for the last 17 years (whoah!). It is starting to feel like it’s about time to pack again and then I remember that this is it. This is the “settled” we have been waiting for all this time. I am so used to starting over and uprooting my family every few years that it’s so surreal to think that we aren’t going to be doing that anymore. Part of me is so content knowing that we are able to buy a house, be nearer to family and actually unpack ALL of the boxes (we are so blessed by this 🙏🏻), but also a part of me is ready to explore and ready to adventure again. I’ll be honest, a part of me misses it and I never thought that I would say that. I love finding new local restaurants, figuring out how to get places and exploring the beautiful nature that is available in each place. I love the freedom that comes with the change. I think this is why I am so eager to travel for sessions, it gives me that same feeling again and my free-spirited soul a place to exist. - Give me a 🙌🏻 if you love exploring new places like I do! - #adventure#hawaiielopementphotographer#austinelopementphotographer#texaselopementphotographer#authenticlovemag#lookslikefilm#pnwelopementphotographer#dirtybootsandmessyhair#heywildweddings#washingtonelopementphotographer#oregonelopementphotographer#radlovestories#yosemitenationalpark#adventureweddingphotographer#vsco#photobugcommunity#hikingelopement
