Chase + Mariah Rosemary Beach, FL Engagement
rosemary beach engagement session kaylie b poplin photography

These two were made for each other! They could not have picked a better place than Rosemary Beach to have their engagement session at, and ultimately, get married at this Spring! Their style aligns so perfectly with the Pearl - white/black, European-inspired and bold. When Mariah first reached out to me, she said that she had an "editorial" vision in mind and I think she nailed it! Kudos to her for being a destination Bride and executing everything so well!

I can't wait for their beautiful wedding this Spring! 

Oh, and not only are they gorgeous (they are model material!) but they are currently renovating their Louisiana home that they will live in after they get married. #CoupleGoals

Seaside and Grayton Beach Weekend Scenes

I joke to Cory that this time of the year is when I have to cram in as much fun as possible, see as many people and have as many lunch dates because once "busy season" hits, it is chaos. The best of kind, of course. :) It is just sad that off season falls during the cold months because are are not cold weather people. It is why we live in Florida. ;)

Anyways - 

1. Anna and I had breakfast at the Black Bear Bread Co. . It was SO good. We have been wanting to try it since they opened and it did not disappoint! It doesn't help that Baker Design Co. made it super cute, either! 

2. We hiked in the Grayton Beach trails where I was convinced we were going to get eaten by a bear. We survived.

3. Ate lunch with my sister and friends at the new Southslice pizza place in Rosemary Beach! It is also super cute! 

4. We walked around Seaside with coffee in hand to watch the sunset. Went into Sundog books. (That place always gets me in trouble. Hello, new coffee table book.)

5. Had coffee on the beach (again) and found a tiny sand dollar. 

6. Ate at one of my favorite places to eat on the Coast - Burrito Del Sol. There is a location in Fort Walton Beach and Destin. We hit up the one in Destin! Southwest chicken tacos to the rescue.

As I type this, I am embarrassed that all of my adventures have to do with "we ate this" and "it was designed so cute" but that is life, friends. Or sadly mine. Ha!

How To Store & Organize Your Photos
howtoorganizeandstorephotos_kayliebpoplinphotography

You have so many pictures between your iPhone, digital camera and professional photos. How in the world are you suppose to store and organize them all? More importantly, how are you to make sure that they don't get taken just to be forgotten about once you post them on Instagram. (Ahem. You know what I am talking about. We are all guilty!) 

No matter the format, these pictures all represent a moment in our life that we valued. Those photos should be treated with just that - value! 

Here are a few ways you can organize, store and even showcase your favorite pictures!

1. Make An Album. 

This seems like such a duh thing but how many of us actually do it? Last year I went through years worth of iPhone and professional photos of our golden, Devo. I created a simple album with Artifact Uprising that now sits on our coffee table for guests to flip through! It isn't anything fancy because to be real, most of the pictures in it were from our phones, but I love having them preserved. I also professionally made our wedding album. It was more expensive, but it is higher quality, the color of the pictures remains true, the pages are thicker and it has a leather cover! We do not keep this on the coffee table but somewhere much safer - out of the reach of spilled drinks and wet dog noses. ;)

2. Frame Them. 

Spruce up your walls with those babies! I lovingly refer to myself as a frame snob sometimes. It took me two years to hang any personal photos on our walls. (Embarrassing, I know.) The issue was that I couldn't find any frames that I liked and I knew if I didn't like the frame, I would get annoyed seeing it on my wall. Hopefully you are not like me but if you are, this past Christmas I asked for custom frames. Yes, it comes with a higher price tag but now I LOVE looking at these pictures on my wall!

3. Print Them.

Print. Your. Pictures. It doesn't matter if they are professional photos or iPhone ones! Print them so that they don't get lost on the web. I like to keep ours in beautiful containers or boxes around the house! It is a way to showcase them but make it to be apart of your decor!

4. Back Them Up x 2. 

Our worse nightmare - and yours, too - is for you to download all of your photos onto your computer only for your computer to crash or die. I backup every image on my computer - client images and my personal ones - on to a secondary hard drive. I then take it a step further. All of our professional images that we have had made - I backup to a USB. I keep the USB in a safe place as insurance in case something were to happen to my computer and secondary hard drive. 

Happy organizing! :)

Life Lately : Christmas 2017

Um. Where did December go? This Christmas was super special for us! We traveled from Germany to Georgia to visit our families! 

First stop - Germany and the country of Luxembourg (in which I quickly fell in love with)! I have wanted to go to Germany for.ev.er. and still can't believe that I was there just a few weeks ago! The design in the architecture blew me away, but I was already expecting that! What I was not expecting was to get the chance to travel to Luxembourg to watch our friend play basketball! (He is a professional basketball player in Europe and grew up with Cory!) Luxembourg is a French speaking country - a language that I love SO much. Their architecture was different from Germany's, as well, because it was more Parisian inspired. We saw much, we loved it a little too much (I would go back tomorrow and stay until ....) and learned that pepperoni pizza in Germany is not actually topped with pepperoni. 

Next up, Georgia! We stayed at our favorite "cabin" and saw people we haven't seen in way too long! It was insanely good to spend the day with my family. The dogs sported the cutest Christmas bows for the occasion, too. ;) (Devo loved it. Winnie hated it.)

With all of the *great* hustle and bustle - I took a "me day" and went for a long walk in Rosemary Beach and Seaside. I actually started off in Inlet Beach. I grabbed a coffee at Amavida in Seaside and went to sit in the Seaside Chapel for a while. They always have it decorated so gorgeous for Christmas!! 

This month was SO good for me. I was lacking on the r & r. I feel so full and so thankful.

Michael + Lauren Alys Beach, Florida Wedding
alys-beach-wedding-kayliebpoplinphotography

Michael + Lauren's Alys Beach wedding was one that I have looked forward to for over a year! They are two are the kindest, most humble beings! Lauren reached out to me over a year ago! Between a years worth of emails and phone calls - I felt like I had known her forever! Her and Michael are the kind of people that you adore instantly!

Their seaside ceremony was so sweet! The sun barely came out all day, but I really think that it was perfect! It gave the whole look a soft, gentleness which completely embodies who they are!

Michael + Lauren - you two were such a highlight of my year! Thank you so much for your friendship, kindness and genuineness!

Andrew + Lauren The Grand On Foster Wedding Dothan, Alabama
alysbeachwedding-filmphotographers-kayliebpoplinphotography

Andrew and Lauren are one of those couples that you want to be around all of the time! The way that they love each other, makes you feel loved just by being in their presence. 

When we first spoke, I knew their wedding was going to be special! They chose to get married at the Grand on Foster in Dothan, Alabama because the venue matched the moody, elegant aesthetic they were aiming for. I had the best time shooting their day because the vibe was different than what I've done in the past!

The details were gorgeous - Lauren put so much thought into them - but it was the celebratory and worshipful attitude that made their whole day memorable! The ceremony was like none I have been apart of before! They made the chief focus of their marriage day a picture of Christ's marriage to His church. It was breathtaking! 

Andrew & Lauren, thanks so much for giving me the honor to be apart of this! You two live out the Gospel evidently and beautifully.

Williams Family Santa Rosa Beach, FL Film Photographers
santarosabeach-fl-film-photographers

She was my first childhood best friend! We were both born in Texas, both moved to a small town in Georgia where our parents met, both nicknamed "bug", both played baseball on the same team that our dads coached on, both went to the same school, both made our parents wonder if we would ever grow out of the tomboy stage... and the list goes on! 

When Kate told me that her family was coming to Santa Rosa Beach and wanted me to photograph them, I freaked out! It has been years since we have seen each other and let me tell you, nothing had changed! 

I had such a great time walking around with them in Watercolor, catching up and photographing them along the way! They are such a special family! The role they played in my life for many seasons is one that I cherish!

Cannoy Family Fort Walton Beach, Florida Film Photographers

Fall is in the air and family sessions are still in full swing! This is my absolute favorite time of the year to live at the beach. Families that vacation to the Emerald Coast during the Fall agree! The traffic slows down, the beaches are empty and the weather is perfect!

The Cannoy family's session in Fort Walton Beach, Florida was an example of how perfect this time of the year is here! They are such a precious family and those girls are the sweetest ever! 

It was such an honor to meet them and photograph them while they were here with their family!

Victoria Austin Designs Newborn Fairhope, Alabama Film Photographer

There is nothing like watching Victoria Austin Designs become a Mother. I don't know if welcoming a child into the world could ever feel natural the first few months, but she would make you think otherwise! She seamlessly transitioned into this new adventure!

Let's just talk a minute about this nursery. You will want to live in Baby A's room! Tori's eye for design exploded into the cutest, detailed space! Every little element was thoughtfully curated and meaningful! 

I can't get enough of this family. I just can't. 

And Otto - well, you may remember his presence years ago in their family portraits. Of course he had to be in a few portraits with his new brother!
