Christmas is about believing, happiness, joy, inspiring and dreams. It’s snow, and cold crisp days, mittens and cocoa and sweet yummy treats.
.

My heart is full in the first day of December. My dream to see the city of New York in December is official and I couldn’t be happier.
.

If you’d like to know more about what makes my holiday special including DIY gifts, my favorite cookies, entertaining ideas, gift wrapping ideas and creating special memories with the kids, DM me with your email. I’ll be sending my first email on Monday.

This statement couldn’t be more true. Not only is it two days from my favorite magical time of year, but I’m finally going to do something I have wanted to do since I was a young girl. See New York City at the holidays. WHAT?!😍
.

My goal at the beginning of the year was to save a small amount each month so I could go to NYC in December with my friends who go every year. I made it! So, at 11:30 pm tonight I’ll be boarding a bus with my favorite photo girlfriends and traveling to NYC, arriving early in the morning to take the town my storm.
We have an incredible itinerary where every moment has us moving. .

I’m literally so excited to finally say I’m going to Christmas in NY that I can hardly stand it. It seemed so surreal last night to be watching the tree lighting thinking I would actually be standing in front of it in just two days. Standing in person making a dream come true.⭐️ #bucketlist 🎄
.

Be sure to follow along in my stories in the coming days. I don’t plan on sleeping much but I sure am going to take a ton of pictures. 📸

During Ashley and Cory’s portraits, we were met by a warm sunset underneath a large southern tree with overhanging branches that kissed the ground. And at that moment, there was nothing more beautiful. So lucky.
.
Double tap if you're a sucker for a gorgeous sunset too ✨

I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving week! It’s my favorite holiday and I can’t wait to spend it with family of all shapes and sizes 🤗🐶

Getting soo close to delivering this gallery 🤗 Any other photographers get so anxious to finish and so nervous as soon as the gallery link is sent?!

The moment before she wore the dress of her dreams that made her officially feel like a bride, her dress was hanging on the door of @strongmansionatsugarloaf. With love in her heart and excitement to walk down the aisle to marry the love of her lice, I photographed it as it hung waiting for her. This is the ”moment before” that I knew was so special. This dress, her wedding dress, would be in the photographs that she shared with loved ones, long into the future.

Sometimes still moments of details mean everything. #nataliejaynebrides

This moment actually happened after Abby's father had accidentally caught a glimpse of her about 10 minutes before (from far away), so we weren't sure how he would react. Safe to say, it still went well. 😭 He opened his arms as he turned around and squeezed her tight... and then continued to make everyone cry. Including me.
.
If you are married and did a first look with your dad, what was your favorite moment?! #nataliejaynebrides #nataliejaynephotography

One if the best things in life are the places we’ve been, the memories we’ve made and the amazing friends we meet on those life-changing adventures.😁
.

I’ve been so anxious to share this photo of the handsome groom and his groomsmen. They are an example of having the best friends you have stand up with you on the most important day of your life and sharing yet another fabulous milestone in your journey together. ✈️

I had no clue what life would look like after I graduated, but I've officially been full time for SIX months. Where in the heck did time go?!
.
During that time I've been on 14 flights, am launching a new brand and website with @daveyandkrista (date to come in the next few days), created TONS of new content for you guys, started a YouTube channel (SO MUCH GOOD STUFF that I created just for you), created an entirely new experience for my 2019 brides, purchased the camera of my dreams, learned about retirement and personal finances for the first time ever, traveled to Scotland and took the most fantastic workshop, met people from all around the globe, and so many things that I'm sure I'm forgetting.
.
I'm feeling a fire in my belly, and I'm feeling so good about what's to come.
.
But with all those fantastic things, come the real struggles behind the scenes. Traveling is amazing, but exhausting and I started feeling like I was never standing still. Something I've learned the hard way is that slow CAN be SOO good.
.
I'm also learning a lot about work-life balance. I'm such a workhorse, and I want to move the needle in my business to create something awesome for you guys, so in order to do that, I will work HOURS longer than I should. Because of this, I'm genuinely learning about myself and my mental health more than ever.
.
I love my job too much some days that I'll wrap myself in it, and I'll even work from morning to night, giving myself no time for other things in life that I care about. Respecting myself enough to stop working for 30 minutes during lunch has been a massive issue for me. I will have to set a timer to stop to drink water and nourish my body.
.
Y'all be in self-employed full-time is full of so many strange external challenges, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I'm so excited to take you guys on this journey with me.
.
How do you make sure to live a more balanced life? What do you do to take care of yourself mentally or physically?

Wednesday deserves beautiful wedding details and these gorgeous flowers fit the day.

Finding your soul mate also requires some details. Don’t let your heart be so full of flutter and goo-goo eyes that you overlook other things in your partner. This is a lifetime commitment and things that bother you now will only get worse.😊
.

So, be sure without a doubt that the partner you choose to walk down the aisle to committing your life with for better or worse will always be there for you. This is two people working together in good times and I won’t lie, there will be bad times, rough spots sprinkled with some of the ugly.
Will you feel loved and adored everyday, will you still be in love as you peel through the layers of the person your with? If the answer is yes, you will have a lifetime of amazing love and happiness.❤️
.

What makes marriage such a special commitment?❤️
