2019, I have a lot I’m looking forward to and I’m putting some of my hopes in you. I know, you’re just a year. But you’re the year I hope to become a momma. You’re the year I am intentionally shooting less weddings than I have since the beginning of my career. The year of more staying home, more gatherings with friends over food and wine, more time in the sun, more of me being poured into the things I love outside of just being a professional in the wedding industry. I have been ready for this life change. 2019, you’re a brand new spectacular thing ✨ #knottinghillplace
Just wait till I’m a mother 🤦🏻♀️I’ll have to follow in the footsteps of the great Michael Scott and have two phones. “But he says it’s okay because he’s just glad to have a family plan” (office lovers, feel free to destroy me for what is probably a horrible misquote. I couldn’t find it online)😂
I love love love this memory from 2018. After full time traveling and six months of vacation across New Zealand and Europe, it was hard coming back to real life. Especially because I came back and hit the ground running with lots of weddings and sessions out of town/state. Part of me was so happy to be working again and part of me wanted to be back in Italy spending stupid amounts of money on brunch 😭🥂 it was also hard spending time away from Matthias after being together literally every single moment for the entire time we traveled. We decided when we got back to be intentional about taking breaks together. Setting aside one weekend a month for *us*, to reflect, to get back to dreaming together. The very first weekend we did it was so special. We stayed downtown, dressed up for a dinner with my best friends, and just enjoyed being intentionally off together. We haven’t accomplished it every month since we got back in July, but we’ve planned ahead for this year and will be better about it. I know people don’t like answering insta questions, but if you want to share how you and your partner make time to be off together or ideas for great weekends/places/eats/any of it, I’d love to hear!
My favorite golden vase and beautiful leftover flowers from my sisters wedding 😭❤️💐 I only shot parts of her day since I wanted to be able to enjoy it all, but I had one of @thefrostcollective girls shoot it and I get to edit ahhh! Starting that today! I’m so stoked! Here’s to hoping that factory reset I did makes my computer run really fast 🤪💕
Beau and Annalise are headed to Ecuador tomorrow! Honestly, I’m used to being the one out of the country! As of tomorrow, I’ll have 4 siblings all out traveling the world. Oh. my. gosh. We’re all grown up! (That’s a joke, there are still siblings down to age of 5 at home🤪)
This is my actual dream you guys. Matthias and I talk often about the large family we want together. We’ll be married 4 years in October (what!) and can I tell youuuu we sure are ready for bundles of joy! Can I just have a bunch all at once?🤪 I learned the word “nibling” last night. It’s a word, look it up! That to say: I’m just soaking up my niblings for now 🤪😂 #lookatthatsquishyface
This may be my favorite candid from yesterday. Hallelujah and Alexis became best friends at the ripe old ages of 6 months & 14 years old. 😂 They’ve slept in the same bed most of those years and shared as much life together as possible because why not? #besties👭 Halle is heartbrokennn having Alexis move away and start this new season of life, but she says all the crying is “happy tears” (hard to believe with all the sobbing) because she wants her big sister to be happy. It’s not just her with the crying though 🤪 when Alexis was leaving last night all of us sisters became weeping messes, but hey, she’s married to the man of her dreams now and we all want that for her 😍 enjoy New Zealand, sexy lexy! You’re our favorite ❤️❤️❤️ come back soon! #sisterfriends
TODAY IS THE DAY!💍 Alexis is my first little sister to get married! 😍🥺❤️ excuse me while I’m a bucket of happy tears for the next 12 hours.
Walking into the weekend like ✨
Let’ssssss talk about Zuzu. I am very emotional these days, guys. These last two weeks I’ve been having to come to terms with the fact we’re giving her back. Back to her home, yes. Back to my brother, yes. This was always a temporary arrangement, yes. The deal was: let Ethan and Hannah Joy adjust to the new baby while we host her & love on her & then give her back when they were ready to have a newborn and a puppy who needs so much lovin’. But in the last couple months, she’s become a part of our lives; sewn so perfectly into the fabric of our days. The pup cuddling doubled when she arrived. She and Byron became best friends. She’s fun, quiet, wonderful. I laid in bed with her a few days ago and cried my heart out thinking about what it’s going to be like not having her in our home. She adds SO MUCH. I know giving her back is the right thing, and I know just a couple months doesn’t seem like enough time to be *this* attached. But I am. And I’m sad. So there’s that.
Portrait as perfect as today was😍 congrats Thy and Hassaan!
Lovingggg this different perspective on the first kiss shot by #internkate over this last weekend! 😍👏🏼 Having a bomb sister who is passionate about learning photography & plans on becoming a wedding photographer herself makes life SO GOOD. 💃
Yes, you SHOULD include your dog in your engagement session😜‼️😍❤️🎉 Hugo is the most recent addition & honorary puppers member of the #frostbridetribe. Maybe I need a hashtag for all the dogs I’ve gotten to shoot over the last few years... like... #thedogsthatlovemadeleinefrost or #madeleinewillstealyourdogswatchout #ilovedogs 😂
The way Andrea looks at Evan is the way I look at my bed after shooting a wedding for 12 hours. 😜
Oh my goodness, Grace 😍 Can y’all guess where this was shot? Oh wait, I tagged the location 😜 But I mean, all this green doesn’t make you think of Galveston does it!? I love finding unexpected spots 😍‼️
I asked my cousin for a caption. She said “no weeping here” .... “because the weeping willow. get it?” ..... I mean, I guess it works... she’s still laughing about it. 🤷🏻♀️😂
I have a girl crush.... on this entire squad.😍
Honestly the best photographer in the room may have been the brides little sister 😜
