megan and neil’s discovery park engagement.

meganneilblog-7Over the winter, we did a lot of Skyping new couples while we sweated it out in Thailand. We’d be chatting happily with strangers, meeting for the first time online– and hoping they wouldn’t notice that we were in our underwear from the waist down and that my mascara had long since melted off.

It was one such phone call that we met Megan and Neil, and we immediately had the sense that these were our future-friends (you know… the ones you can be like “I literally am so sweltering that I cannot put on pants” and they’ll be like “It’s not even hot out here and I don’t have pants on either.” So the kind of kindred-spirits we jump up and down about after we hang up the Skype call).

Megan posted a photo from this shoot and said we made them “feel like what we imagine magically finding a billion dollars in our laps would feel like,” which is PRECISELY how we feel about finding people like them. They love each other like crazy, their relationship has been tested by fire, they keep emerging victoriously, and on top of all that, they look like a couple of damn models.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
