“You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will alw
“You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” - Miriam Adeney . . This quote reflects my heart here lately. I’ve always known I love to travel. I’ve had this deep desire for as long as I can remember to see all the places and meet wonderful people in those places. Lately though that desire to travel strongly coincides with close friendships and family in places I long for. Knowing your friends are somewhere amazing, and having a desire to be surrounded by wonderful people in this beautiful world can feel heavy at times. I’ve chosen to use this as motivation to keep working hard. Keep loving those dear friends from a far and continuing to look forward to the day we’re adventuring together. To my forever bestie Jessica, I love you so much. Thank you for keeping me young, and keeping my head on straight from a far. Your messages these past few days have been so appreciated. Even in their simplicity. . . . . . #theheartuniveristyelite#destinationweddingphotographer#adventureelopments#nationalparkweddingphotographer#grandcanyonphotographer#tucsonphotographer#tucsonbride#tucsonelopementphotographer#horseshoebendelopement#canyonbeachengagement#grandcanyonengagement#dirtybootsandmessyhair#adventurousstoryteller#adventureinstead#lakepowellengagement#utahbride#lakepowellphotographer#pageweddingphotographer#pagearizonaphotographer#utahweddingphotographer#mountlemmonphotographer#mountlemmonelopement#mountlemmonwedding#mountlemmonbride#mountlemmontucsonphotographer#tucsonweddingphotographer#scottsdaleweddingphotographer

My past 2 weddings, @tonymoody7 has assisted me in being my second shooter. He is so darn creative, personable, learns quickly, helpful in every aspect, and even taught me a thing or two along the way! - For my fellow photographers, he is everything you can ask for in a second shooter. Dependable, hard-working, and so much more. For my scouting brides, Tony would be a wonderful selection for your wedding photographer if I am not available! And for my current/future brides, you might see him tagging along side of me at your wedding so this goes without saying but, you will be in the best of hands!!! - *side note* is this not the DOPEST sendoff?!?! - photo: @tonycreatives edit: me :-)

Is #intimatetuesdays a thing? It should be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honestly, getting this close is one of my favorite things to do - I know it's intimidating - so don't worry, we work up to this haha, we don't just dive in - but personally, there's just something about the closeness that I feel is an extrmely powerful way to show love and affection.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love epic portraits, don't get me wrong but if I was limited to only one type of shot, it would be these. No snow-capped mountains in the background, no beautiful designer dress or impeccably styled venues - just you two, being close, being intimate... Being, in love. #wildhairandhappyhearts#adventureinstead#bohobride#intimatewedding#intimateweddingphotographer#elopement#intimatewedding#elopementphotographer#closeness#intimateportraits#adventureweddingphotographer#adventurewedding#adventuresession#adventureelopement#mountainelopement#photobugcommunity#heyheyhellomay#belovedstories#lookslikefilm#victoriaweddingphotographer

A little while back you may have seen that the little family and I traveled up to country Victoria. While up there we visited family and introduced them to little Elliott but I also documented the freaking cutest DIY Intimate wedding in Shep (as voted by me). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hayley and Michael opted to ditch the ballrooms, the extended guest list full of people they don't know and anything else that didn't speak to them and instead made their wedding day their own - held in their home they got married in their living room, surrounded by an amazing group of loving friends and family and it was absolutely beautiful (photos to come). For now though, here's one from their portraits in the nearby botanicals. #littlethingstheory#adventuresession#togetherweroam#radcouples#justalittleloveinspo#togetherjournal#heywildweddings#adventureinstead#wildhairandhappyhearts#intimatewedding#intimate#tinywedding#microwedding#lookslikefilm#photobugcommunity

Last winter I found myself sinking so hard into a rut. I was becoming that photographer I had heard the terrible stories of before, the photographer who was becoming burnt out on something they knew and worked so hard at doing and becoming. It’s true , I was on the path of being the next sad story. How could I have even let this happen? I knew instantly that Something was missing and I needed to find what reason it was that I was given this talent in life. My husband and children will and have always been first, but being a wife and a mother couldn’t possibly be the only thing I was supposed to do. As humans, We need that one thing that is for ourselves and mine was fading away right in front of my very own eyes. I quickly had to create and plan and it really got my creative brain to start revolving with all these epic things I wanted to do, places I wanted to see, love between two people I wanted to witness and capture. With ALOT of determination, motivation, and support from my husband and friends. I can say I have found my reason and what it is I was missing all these years. What I was put on this beautiful planet to do. I’m supposed to adventure the world while story telling through my lens. I am supposed to give beautiful humans an experience that also leaves them with the most epic and stunning memories, and I am going to continue doing just that !

Okay, I'm thinking about putting together a blog post of some of my favorite locations in Victoria to have an engagement/adventure session that aren't your local parks or in the CBD. These would be the places that I normally recommend to couples when they're planning an adventure session with me. Would anybody be interested? Better yet, is anybody able to guess a location or two? :P ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #adventurebride#littlethingstheory#adventuresession#togetherweroam#radcouples#justalittleloveinspo#togetherjournal#heywildweddings#adventureinstead#wildhairandhappyhearts#ivorytribe#neverstopexploring#victorianweddingphotographer#morningtonpeninsulaweddingphotographer

Time for another film post! My favourite, Portra 400 (my fav is actually portra 800 but this is very close) It was so crazy shooting photo, video AND film for a couple of crazy sweet mountain elopement shoots. But we did it, and it was fucking awesome ❤️ I am so excited to go back, and to be going on some mini fun trips in the near future (Valley Fair here we come). This shot comes from the cutest mountain champagne pop, and the gif is coming soon! . #elopement#elopementlove#love#champagne#flowers#bouquet#wedding#weddinglove#adventureinstead#adventure#travel#instatravel#instalove#travelcouple#adventurewedding#banffweddingphotographer#banffwedding#banff#weddingphotographer#thatslove#adorable#instagood#winnipegweddingphotographer#elopementphotographer#junebugswedding

Living for today. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you were to ask me a year and a half ago if I wanted children, I would of laughed and said “not yet.” I would of told you I’d be totally okay with not having kids. The time is just not right. We need to save more money, travel a little bit more. I wasn’t ready for the soccer mom mini van, responding to text messages months later, or watching the same cartoon movie on repeat. I just wasn’t ready. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That’s when it happened. Life hits you in unexpected ways sometimes. I got a call from my husband that he lost his little brother. It hit us like a ton of bricks and more of that “life is short” kind of feeling. That month, I turned to my husband and said “I want a baby.” And just like that a month later, we were pregnant. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That was one year ago and I keep thinking, I feel like this baby journey has taken FOREVER. I’ve spent the last year of my life preparing for a baby and I’m already wishing it would be a year from today. Maybe then I’ll have my baby. Thinking how things are going to change, it’s going to be great. So much better than today. But sometimes, you need a little tap on the shoulder, reminding yourself. Today. This moment, this time, this breath. That’s today. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We live in a world of convenience. Everything we have is at the touch of are fingers. Can’t afford it, pay it off later. Want it now, done and done. I mean, Taco Bell delivers now. What👏🏼A👏🏼Time👏🏼To👏🏼 Be👏🏼 Alive👏🏼 BUT there is the downfall to that. Somethings aren’t going to be at your fingertips or happen overnight. And that’s something I’m learning. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So, Kisa, here I am today, reminding you the sun is still shining. Yesterday has happened and no matter how hard you try, you can’t change that, but today. Look around. The future will come soon enough and you’ll be looking at this girl today. Thinking, I wish I could of hugged her and told her... in time you will see, in time you will know, in time, but not today. You’ll get through the heartbreak. You’ll get through the good and the bad, the pretty and the ugly. And today, that’s what you’ve got. Live for it. Be grateful for it. It’s what you have, today. ⁣⁣

Adventure Seeker. The reason why we do it all.. — We have absolutely been raising a little adventurer, an explorer, a wild one.. — Do you know how many times we’ve heard people say they couldn’t live their lifestyle with children? A lot. In fact so much so while we were pregnant that we waited for the day someone would say the opposite.. — No one really ever did, so now when people ask us if it’s hard to travel with a child we make sure to be the opposite of those who tried to convince us otherwise.. — While we explored and did our big shoot at Horseshoe Bend, the couple we were working with said it was cool to see us taking him along with us instead of letting it hold us back.. — I’ll say this, and I mean it with every ounce of me. Never once did a believe children meant staying home, never adventuring, or living our lives to the fullest. In fact it’s the driving factor in all of this for us.. — He’s my why. The reason why I do it all. The reason why I hustle with all of my heart. The reason we spend Sundays in nature and not camped out on the couch with cartoons rolling in the back ground (not that anything is wrong with that!) because it’s our day to spend as a family and adventure. If there is any one of us that loves adventure more than the rest of the mayernick household it’s this little one.. — He will climb all the mountains, all the trees, see all the oceans and do so much more in his life than we could ever imagine. He’s done more at 2 than I have in 25 years!

Come my dear, for we’re about to go on an adventure of a lifetime... . Kirsten and Yannick had a wedding day full of sun, rain, thunder and love. . With every detail planned meticulously themselves they created an intimate wedding day that was 100% them. . They worked hard to make their dream day a reality. They started weed whacking an area for their ceremony site on Yannick’s family’s private property one week before the wedding day. . They were certainly sweating for the wedding but maybe a bit differently than other people 😉 Kirsten even had a little sunburn spot that was peeling on her back from all their efforts!

The way he looks at her is... heart. melting. One of my favorite moments of the day is time spent away from the celebrating. Just you two, finally married soaking in the reason for the day. Marriage is just oh so sweet! - Second shoot for the lovely @kjerstinthea.photo

Have you ever been in a place in life where you feel like you’re growing leaps and bounds daily? . . I literally have been so mind blown lately by self reflecting. I feel like everyday I’m learning something new about myself. This wasn’t always the case of course, in fact for a long time I was so stuck in this negative mentality that growing and changing was near impossible. . . I’ve had so many good conversations with my husband and close friends lately about being self aware. We’ve talked about things we need to do for ourselves to stay healthy mentally. We’ve also talked about how to keep from falling back into that negative mindset when you’re around people who aren’t like minded. . . So so many hearty conversations and good revelations. The biggest growth for me has been filtering those negative thoughts that are so knee jerk for some people. It’s easy to be quick to anger or constantly be annoyed with others when your mindset isn’t right. It may not seem like it but it’s self deprecating to let yourself feel that way. SELF CARE is so important and talked about constantly now but it doesn’t just mean pampering yourself! . self care is +keeping your thoughts positive +reflecting on the good parts of your growth while owning the times when you weren’t at your best but knowing you overcame it +taking time to recognize when you’re in need of self care and doing something about it . . All this reflecting lately helped me recognize my anxiety creeping up yesterday and I immediately knew the best way to cure that was getting outside and taking a breather. Learning and growing takes time, but when you start owning everything you are you’ll grow exponentially in such a short period of time.

Tina made her own bouquet using some frangipani blooms she found near @cottagesbytheseastcroix. And when Kmart didn’t have any ribbon, she bought some cheap washcloths, used the ribbon from the packaging and called it a day. I loved her attitude about the whole thing and how it turned out! It’s so nice working with couples who just roll with the punches and embrace the island weirdness.

Can you actually believe this was on Melbournes coldest day in 40 years?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was raining all day but we took our chances and ducked out into the hills on the grounds of the gorgeous @bulongestate and we were met with a short burst of golden light.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #melbourneweddingphotography#bulongestate#intimateweddingphotography#wildhairandhappyhearts#adventureinstead#bohobride#intimatewedding#intimateweddingphotographer#mountainwedding#photobugcommunity#heyheyhellomay#belovedstories#lookslikefilm

We enjoyed biking Mackinac Island today! It’s a bikers paradise, we got there early and had most of the road to ourselves until everyone else got out of bed 😂 oh the places our bikes have seen, two years ago they crossed the whole state of Iowa on RAGBRAI, last year they climbed Going to the Sun Road in Glacier NP and now Mackinac Island. Where should they go next? #fluggeoutdoors#rvfta#travelholic#jaycojayflight#adventurephotographer#relaxing#vacationtime#rvtravel#adventureinstead#outdoorsy#whatgetsyouourdoors#jayco#fordtrucks#fortheloveofthehunt#chasindreamsandkillinthings#trekbikes#bikingadventure#roadbikes#macinacisland#upmichigan#upnorthmichigan

To say that I LOVE all of my couples would be an understatement. But sometimes I work with people that I immediately feel connected to. Tia and Kevin are two of those people. From our first meeting through their magical wedding day, I always felt like I was visiting with old friends. They made me feel so comfortable, and welcomed me into their lives with open arms. Tia and Kevin I want to thank you from the depths of my soul. It was not only an honor but an absolute joy working with you this weekend ❤️. Congratulations 🍾!!! . . An AMAZING team of vendors helped make this day a success!

I lost track of the days, we played outside and had picnics in the backyard, saw friends and family and enjoyed being home all together. ⁣ ⁣ What a weekend! ⁣ ⁣ Im feeling all motivated for the new week and getting things done, even a 4 am wake up call can’t stop me (well, coffee is helping that 🤪).⁣ ⁣ How was your weekend? Do long weekends make it harder to get back to work, or are you motivated to get stuff done?

It's been a whole month already?!? Hey Instagram, I'm back! I've been gone a little while, not because I wanted too as such but because I felt it was unfair to dedicate time to posting on social media whilst I've got a backlog of weddings and adventure sessions. My busiest season ever also coincided with the birth of my little boy Elliott - and being transparent with you all, managing time got a whole lot harder this year, but I'm almost there with a handful of weddings to deliver. I also need to thank my absolutely amazing couples who've been extremely patient and supportive too - I'm so grateful for you all!
