Happy Friday, folks! Today I wanted to share some personal photos from our vacation to Barcelona & Sitges, Spain. It’s become a bit of a tradition for us to take a vacation in the fall when our busy wedding season wraps, and this trip was so amazing & refreshing! We only got home a few weeks ago and we’re already missing the outdoor cafes (& espresso!), the relaxed Spanish lifestyle, and wandering the amazing streets of Barcelona. We shot a combination of film & digital on this trip, and below is some of the 35mm film we took.

Have a great weekend. :)

LonePineSierraNevadasWeddingPhotographer-143 A few links to posts + things that I have found particularly rad as of late…

Why Autumn leaves change color.

Our crockpot seems to come back into action every fall…this Slow Cooker Chicken & Wild Rice Soup is simple & delicious.

What to do when you fail.

Found via Pinterest, the best pre and post workout snacks.

It is so hard to find a camera bag that is both stylish & functional, and I finally found one that I adore.

Looking forward to trying out these all-natural facial cleansing wipes while on vacation.

Loved this post from one of our former bride’s: How to Eat Healthy & Organic Meals on a Budget.

Our favorite strange 90’s TV show, Twin Peaks, is coming back in 2016! Fun Fact: We got engaged at Snoqualmie Falls, Washington, (which is shown in the show’s opening), and to celebrate we had breakfast at Twede’s Cafe (again, where many scenes were filmed.) I know, we’re nerds. ;)

And from me, how I feel when my husband buys last-minute tickets for me to see Lorde at the Greek Theatre.

Happy Friday, friends!

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset making pumpkin buckwheat pancakes and celebrating everything that it is October. (Recipe here, except I substitute buttermilk for almond milk.)

loving our new blog design via Blogzilla Studio, and feeling so inspired for a new season of blogging in our business.

wearing pieces from my fall capsule wardrobe. I decided to take the plunge and shrink my closet down after being so inspired by Caroline Joy & her un-fancy blog about capsule wardrobing. It has been the best. thing. ever! 

listening to Lorde’s new single. I’m into Lorde like I’m a pre-teen in middle school.

working like a mad woman. This month is jam-packed with so many fun weddings!

squeezing in time to workout + get outside and walk our dogs every day. It is so good & necessary for my soul.

looking forward to a vacation we’re taking in a few short weeks.

Happy October + happy weekend! :)

Fall is our favorite time of year. We love cooler weather, hot drinks, more time with our friends and family, and Christmas everything. :-) We’ve been having a bit of fun lately shooting some film on Nates dad’s old Minolta X-700 35 mm camera. While we love shooting digital for our wedding photography, there’s just something sort of magical about film and we’ve really been enjoying shooting film in our personal work. Below are a few shots from our first developed roll…more personal adventures on film coming soon! :-)

Last week we went on vacation to Oahu–a trip we’ve been looking forward to since March! We’re officially back and feeling so refreshed after having had such a busy summer wedding season. We’re sooo thankful for this time that we got to get away, relax & refocus…and drink a mai tai (or two). ;)

During our trip we took some video clips along with lots of photos (of course) and Nate put together this little “vacation video.” I love it–it brings me right back to the moment:

And some stills from our trip:
