A week ago this very moment, Amisadai and I were careening through Newark International Airport like two little sweaty piglets who could not wait to return to their abode. In the first 8 months of her life, Misa hasn’t spent more than two consecutive weeks at home, and has taken over 20 flights and nearly […]

Let’s talk FOMO: I don’t have it. I remember very clearly the year I decided to jump off the train of feeling like everything was happening wherever I wasn’t. I was a junior in college, surrounded by options, and realized that I spent every party planning the NEXT party. Switching majors. Wishing I were abroad […]

My grandparents loved Portugal, frequently returning to the sunny charm and accessible beauty of the little country in Spain’s shadow. And when we went in December, I really felt like we were having a VERY similar experience to what they were having in the 70s. In all the best ways. Why haven’t tourists flooded in […]

Some people just have a luminance to them, and nyc photographer carly is no exception We met Carly many moons ago at Josh Wool’s Light Theory workshop in New York. Tim and I decided to get down to brass tacks and be serious about our photography education.  We forked over money we didn’t really have, […]

Hello fellow earthlings. We’ve returned to the blog for the inaugural 2018 post (uhhh whoops) and DO WE HAVE A DOOZY FOR YOU. Jackie and Damian’s wedding in the outer reaches of the wild west for their Montana wedding: we’re talking lightning storms as they ran through fields. We’re talking whiskey-soaked dance parties, a ceremony […]

I listened to an interview recently and the guest ( I can’t remember who it was!) said something to the tune of “the more activities you cram into your world, the slower time goes by. It’s when you don’t do anything at all that time seems to flicker by without you noticing.” I’ve been thinking […]

Two years ago when we dropped it all and left for Thailand, Alana was waiting for us on the other side of the flights with street food and arms flung wide open. She’s lived in Chiang Mai, the darling lil gem of the north, for half a decade now, and the sois and secret spots […]

Oh, this old thing? It’s just a five minute photoshoot with Sarah and Tyson, in between our annual Bastille Day traditions of overeating French food and singing the Marsellaise too loudly after a bottle or two of wine. These guys are the most inspiring humans we’ve ever met. If I could bottle up their exhales […]

If you’re going to careen across the state for a wedding, dear Lord let it be for the world’s chillest couple in the mellow little town where Ray Lamontagne sold his coat. Spokane has the perfect mix of quirky hotels (Kate and Rob’s first look was in the bar at the Historic Davenport— why doesn’t […]

Wandering into the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center is stepping into the modern day ruins of old Texas: all sandy stone and climbing ivy and agave plants, a place to return to again and again as you find new paths and new plants defying the odds; growing sturdily in the Texas heat. New paths every time […]

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.
