Where is your favorite location to shoot? One of ours is Haystack Rock in Oregon. Did you know The Goonies and parts of Twilight was filmed here? Dave and Natalie were troopers during this shoot. We won't say the water was warm, that's for sure.

Man alive, what a crazy job I signed up for but I gotta say, it sure feels good to come up for air and see posts like this, from amazing photographers, who are able to capture what I’m working on. Photographers are the best translators and I so appreciate you all. Thanks for the share @victoriacarlsonphoto and come back anytime :)❤️🌲 -Wallis
OREGON BRIDES-TO-BE. If you haven’t found a venue yet, I highly suggest looking into @lolomalodge 😍 This place is an absolute dream. Swipe through to see some more details from around the property (and the amazing @heyyouflowers’s work)!
Hey friends!! Guess what?!
On the other part of your comfort zone is immense growth!! So just freaking go for it!! Relish in the struggle, lean into the hard, and find joy in the triumph!!
I know you have it in you! The question is do you?! 💕
the shoes + the dobo sisters 🌿 i love taking the getting ready images. seeing all the nerves and excitement and most of all the beauty in performing acts that have been done for soooo long. 💥did you know marriage pre-dates christianity by thousands of years? the first was recorded in 2350 b.c. 🥂marriage with what we recognize as “romantic love” (like @dobo_bird 💃+🕺🏻@forustercole ) only dates back to the middle ages 💕 #sistersquad#weddingshoes#wineryweddings

They made the abs I don’t have hurt. 😂 Frolicking through the leaves in our hood, cause that’s what Fall is for. 😂😭
Taking about 20-30 minutes to feed my mind in the morning has been a game changer for me! It’s helped me gain perspective on my life and the world, shape my mind to be more positive (and I always thought I was a super positive person), and show me that I can and should be fearless. ✨
If you haven’t dabbled in this genre or think it is for the weak, think again. It’s actually for people who want to do better in the world, make things happen for them and for their families. If anything it’s for the 💪🏼

How do you know when you’ve “made it?” Is it when you’re making a certain dollar amount in sales or when you have a certain number of Instagram followers?
Honestly, for me... it’s being able to freely share with others my knowledge of this industry and what I’ve learned over the years and not even bat an eye for fear of my “secrets” getting out. I truly love being able to share and help others grow their businesses in small ways, and It brings me joy to see others’ success in this industry.
It’s why I started @engagingeugene 4 years ago and it’s why I’m continually learning and growing myself. Cheers to building each other up, realizing there IS enough business to go around, and finding your place in this amazing industry that we are apart of. 🥂

No clever caption because my alarm went off at 3:45am today.. so here’s a pretty 🌿
Pop the bubbly, It's our birthday!🎉 The Abernethy is celebrating 17 years today. That's right, we opened 10/15/2001. Although wedding trends have come and gone, some things never change. It's a tremendous honor to be a part of so many love stories. Every couple is unique and, even after 17 years, every wedding is a different surprise. We truly love what we do. We thank you for your partnership, your friendship and your business. Cheers & Much Love!!! 🥂❤️

This one and I leave for Disneyland in the morning. ✨ I’m giggling with excitement.
Can I show you a peek? Right now seemed as good a time as any for a little behind-the-scenes. Here’s a glimpse into my to-do list this week, which includes some of my very favorite things—and I can’t wait to tell you why:
Prepping Ari and Antony’s blog post- I always love telling my client’s stories, and I know you’re going to fall in love with their sweet story!
Doing a little facelift and updating my website! I have so many beautiful sessions and weddings from this past year, and I’m so excited to feature all my new favorites!
Mentor meeting with the amazing @peteandjordan—they are a never-ending source of business inspiration, not to mention how much fun our times are together!
What are you up to today?💁🏽♀️
Felt good to crush my workout on a Monday morning!! 💪🏼
Sure it was tough at times but when the trainer talks about making this time your therapy time, your time for you, I felt my mindset shift and was joyful about the ability to workout and move my body!
And that’s just it. It’s all about mindset. If you think it’ll be tough or you think it’s impossible then guess what? It is. But when you have a positive, motivational personal trainer and team behind you, that teach you that you can do anything you put your mind to, it makes all the difference!!
There are 11 weeks left in 2018. That is 11 weeks to change your mindset and 11 weeks to change your body. I can help you get there and feel confident going in to the New Year! Stop thinking you will make healthier decisions on Jan 1. All that does is sabotage your progress NOW!! .
Message me if you want in on my next bootcamp!! Spots will fill up quickly!! 💪🏼🤗
Keeping it simple is best when nature is doing the heavy lifting 🌿💚🌿💚🌿There’s nothing like wine country for killer views 🍇😭👌but I must say it’s a little distracting when you’re trying to work!! I just kept staring off over the valley, trying to soak it all in - here’s hoping we did it justice 🥂

Soooo, about yesterday...holy. freaking. cow.
I got to go adventuring with one of my past Bride + Grooms (plus two assistants!) and we pretty much took the whole afternoon to mosey up the trail + explore before they finally changed into their wedding clothes and we started shooting.
Because we had allowed so much time, I was able to relax and really let my creative juices flow, and ohmygosh I’m so thankful for that.
I left on a photographer’s high...amazed at the progress I’ve made in the past months since I shot this incredible couple’s wedding, and blown away by the fact that I get to call this (one of) my job(s). thank you, Jesus. thank you for yesterday, thank you for the perfect weather, and thank you for this love of cameras + mountains that you have instilled in me.
to God be the glory.
Give me all the close up shots and wind blown hair ☘️
As Halloween approaches, it takes me back to this spooky shoot with @ashleycookphoto, @goodseedfloral, @softpeakscakery, @ktmichelledesigns, and other fabulous wedding pros that was featured on @100_layercake a few years back. 🖤🖤🖤
I will never forget the abandoned warehouse where the shoot took place... it was SO incredibly creepy (and absolutely perfect for our vision)! I’ll be braving the local haunted house and corn maze this weekend and I’m already so excited! Who else enjoys getting a little bit creeped out!?
Feeling back in my routine finally. Even though I didn’t get up as early as I intended, I had my breakfast prepped and I was ready to go!! 👌🏼
Pro tip for waking up early ✅:
Make breakfast for the week so you just have to heat it up and eat! That makes the task of getting out of bed a little more doable! At least it does for my brain! 👌🏼
I love my carrot cake muffins but if you are a savory breakfast person try some egg muffin cups!! I have a recipe for both! Message me and I’ll send it!! 🤗🤗
Choosing your bridesmaids can be quite the task, but we’re positive that Courtney chose the absolute best hype team a girl could ask for. They call themselves the “woo girls” + they seriously made our bride, Courtney, feel so special all. day. long. Constantly smiling beside her, fixing her dress, holding her flowers, crying out of genuine happiness, + cheering her on any chance they got! Honestly, we kind of wish we could hire them to love on + hype up ALL of our brides on their wedding days 🖤🙌🏻 // @courtneykuipervannevel 🌿: @roseandhoneyfloral

Self care? Remind me what that is again?? I’ve gotten out of routine with all of my “me” things lately and I think it’s catching up with me.
I haven’t been on my yoga mat, I haven’t taken a bubble bath, I haven’t gotten my mani/pedi, I haven’t opened a book.. all in over a month and a half!
Real talk, I am one of those people whose guilty conscious gets the best of them. I feel guilty taking care of ME when I have so much work to do and clients who depend on me. Work/life balance is a the definition of struggle for this gal.
What are your favorite self care routines? Help a sista out!
