Facing Monday with a good dose of boldness and grace! Knocking out the to-do list means nothing if time isn’t also made for some kindness and puppy cuddles - the latter part of that might be my specific philosophy 🤷🏻‍♀️💛 Hope you’re rocking out your goals today!

I hope that you dream your biggest dreams this weekend. 💛

If we haven’t bumped into one another in person, there’s a good chance that you might not know I’m actually pregnant right now! Zack and I are expecting our first child in October, and to say that pregnancy has been a rapidly moving season would be a massive understatement.
A few weeks ago, I realized I could probably still get my wedding dress on and so I did with the intention of celebrating the love that is bringing this little adventure into the world and commemorating this season of preparing and cherishing.
I’d love to tell you that this self portrait shoot was really dignified and graceful but it totally wasn’t! Feeling awkward, realizing it’s been ages since I’ve photographed myself like this, and shuffling equipment and our kitchen around (yes, this is in the kitchen) - yet that’s kind of a picture of life in this season too. There is art to be found and made in between the comically dysfunctional. Somewhere in the middle is where the bigger picture of the gifts we’re given each day rests.

Whatever season of life you’re in, I hope that you can take a few moments today to laugh at the inconveniences out of your control and to celebrate the bigger movements toward what God has for you in this life!

Bold and beautifully curated details were easy to find throughout Jessica + Tom’s wedding! There’s magic found in the balance of those two qualities. Captured while assisting the incredibly kind @fitzcarlileweddings

Saturday’s were made for adventures with your hunny! Currently enjoying a lovely late morning cafe stop with mine in wonderful San Jose 🌞 Anyone going anywhere fun with their loves and friends this weekend?

Dallas + Brett, engaged and soaking in that early morning glow. I’m so excited for their January wedding at @thestationkcff!

There’s nothing quite like chasing golden hour glory with newlyweds! 🙌🏻

Nature inspires, meals nourish, and shared laughter is healing music. My three reasons for loving al fresco dining! This past week my hubby and I were able to get away and enjoy some meals in the gorgeous outdoors of Santa Cruz with some dear friends. Whether it’s a humble meal prepared to be enjoyed on a picnic table or a spread fit for this incredible orchard setting crafted by @blu_events, stunning florals by @birchwoodfloraldesign, and rentals by @unionvintagerents, I’m in love!

Beauty that belongs in a painting - Brittany’s radiant ladies in mismatched blush, ivory, and champaign make my heart sing!

Anyone else totally guilty of overthinking from time to time? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Nothing drives me back to the basics like that, so when it happens I look for the little touches. Gentle hands under a bouquet, brand new wedding bands just placed in their lifelong places of honor. As easy and poignant as inhale and exhale, just as it should be, and just like remembering to give ourselves a little grace and to embrace the journey and gift of creating.

There’s just nothing else quite like these moments that express the simple beauty of “to have and to hold” | Shoot coordinated by @vicandsasha
