blogs i heart

Not all the blogs and bloggers I follow have buttons for me to snag so I thought I would put together a list here. These are blogs I personally love to read and follow. (They are in alphabetical order, but the photography ones are seperate)

Ana's Area
I just started following Ana. She sent me a comment on my 52 date nights and said that her and her hubby are going to do them. She put all the ideas in a jar and they pick at random. Her goal is to document all of them! So exciting to see my ideas inspiring others and I can't wait to see more!

Kitchen Table Art
I met Gracie in August 2011 - she was a bridesmaid in a wedding I was photographing (random fact: I've know the groom since elementary school and the bride since 9th grade). Anyway, she does AWESOME custom art pieces. From re-purposed wood to ice coolers - she does it all and is amazingly talented! I have personally bought a piece from her and plan to buy more! You need to check her out!

The Lovely Find
This is a southern wedding blog that I follow and have been featured on. I love it. Simple as that.

Lil Blue Boo
I have been following Ashley for years... like MySpace following! She does a little of everything - DIY, organization, clothing… name it she writes about it. She recently was battling cancer and, as insain as it sounds, she handled it with such grace and humor. She is a rockstar.

Little Chief Honeybee
Stumbled upon her blog on Pinterest and L-O-V-E is. She does a little of everything and it's ah-mazing.
I found Liz through a photographer I followed. She re-purposes a lot of old furniture and paints them fun colors. I mean I really don’t know what to say about her blog other than I simply love it and pass it around to a lot of people! Check her out – trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

Stephanie made national news when the private plane she was in with her husband crashed leaving her with burns all over her body. I have been following her blog for about a year now and I love to see the God’s miracles at work.

Jenn’s blog went viral last year after she posted a rant about Elf on a Shelf. My best friend turned me on to her and I love her. She is blunt, honestly, funny, and real. Sure, some of the things she says offend people but I like that she is open and frank. She makes me laugh – that’s all I care about!

A fellow South Carolinian - I love her blog. She totally makes me want to go to Goodwill or a Thrift shop and go nuts! I have always loved crazy patterns and her reinvention of older clothes is awesome. Purely rad. She did 366 (leap year) days of re-fashioning and you need to check it out. Plus I love seeing her SC references!!
I stumbled on her last year and fell in love. Kat uses her blog to post wedding related thing but with a twist. The photos she uses from photographers aren’t your typical cookie-cutter weddings or everyday shoots. From a Tim Burton themed wedding to a bride with a rainbow petticoat, Kat covers them all. Every post makes me more and more excited about wedding photography. PLEASE check her out! You’re totally missing out if you don’t.
I mean how awesome is that name?! (And I am not just saying that because April is family...). I follow her daily. Her fashion advice, weekly confessional, and Instagram Fridays are just a few reasons why I love reading what she has to say. Each day has a theme which keeps you coming back for more!
What It's Like Being Jesse's Girl
This is my best friends blog!! (side note: I took her profile photo it was the first family session ever for me too!!). Anyway - Lamphone (or Poon as most called her) is an amazing writer and sometimes posts sneak peaks into what book idea she has floating around. I lovey her and because she is in Iowa and I'm in SC it is a fun way to stay in touch!!


I found this awesome couple through Stephanie of The Nie Nie Dialogues. A few years ago they decided to get rid of basically everything and travel the world with their two kids. Their photographs are breathtaking and their blog posts are hilarious. I am slightly jealous by all their travels and simplistic lifestyle! I dream of going to one of their workshops and being photographed by them!

Dana Cubbage - Pet Photography & Wedding Photography
I have worked with Dana on a few sessions - she's come up from Charleston and we are going to Vegas together in March! I love her style. She is laid back and super creative. My clients would recommend her any day of the week. Her pet photography is awesome and she's a force to be reckoned with in the bloggin' world!

Glass Jar Photography
Hey Twilight fans - these photogs shot a music video for Nikki Reed (played Rosalie) and her husband Paul McDonald. They also photographed their wedding. Anyway- their work rocks. I would describe it as airy - yes, airy. It's light, refreshing, and lovely.

To other photogs this is a no brainer, but it’s not just about her photography (which is gorgeous). She is a self proclaimed goof, sometimes self-doubter, an motivated learner & teacher. She has made a name for herself in the industry in a VERY short amount of time.

I have had the pleasure of working with Katie and being photographed by her. She is awesome! It was her work that inspired me and pushed me to start my photography business. I was following her work (via MySpace again) back in 2008 and have followed her ever since. I love her work and her effortless way of photographing people. Not to mention her daughter is absolutely stunning!!

Love is a Big Deal
This is my new favorite wedding shot by Josh and Meg. I just love their work and Josh posts awesome stuff on his personal page as well. Not only does the name of their company ROCK but their work speaks volumes. It's fun, fresh, vintage, and quirky. Love it.

Perry Vaile Photography
First - her website is the coolest one I have seen to date. Second her photos are totally one-of-a-kind. I would love to shoot with this lady. There is something about her stuff that just draws me in and I want to see more!

Three Nails Photography
Whoa-ness. I DREAM of going to one of their workshops. Their editing style and posing are to die for, and it's looks so effortless. I have been following them for a while now and am always impressed with their work.
