photography bucket list | personal | photography

we all have ’em. those lists of things we would like to do before we die, aka, our bucket lists. i’ve already made a summer bucket list, which inspired me to share my photography bucket list! i made a photography bucket list about a year ago, but here is the updated version! i love having dreams like these, because they keep me motivated to work hard and help me stay inspired. i hope and pray that i never stop dreaming and always try to reach my goals! without further ado, here is my updated photography bucket list of SHOOTS i would like to photograph! feel free to let me know if there’s something YOU want to do as a photographer, or even as a cool idea! i’m open for lots of ideas! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • an engagement session with a hot air balloon as the background- how epic would that be?
  • a wedding in ireland – i can’t even fathom up the right words to say for this! how could would that be?!?! add a castle to the mix and i’ll be in heaven! ๐Ÿ™‚
  • a cultural wedding – i think it was be so beautiful to shoot an indian wedding! the colors would be so rich and the traditions would be so cool! i think i would pass out from excitement if i ever had this opportunity!
  • a beach wedding – i think it would be so pretty to have the ocean as your backdrop during your vows and first kiss as husband and wife.
  • a wedding in california – it would be so nice to leave the west coast and get some california action! palm trees and sunset on the beach? yes please!
  • trash the dress shoot – ahhhh!!! i think that would be so much fun! i have a few ideas to make this type of shoot extra special!
  • a destination wedding (somewhere tropical) – oh my gosh! if this ever happened, i might die. ahhhhh!!!! can you imagine how awesome this would be?!
  • engagement session in disney world – seriously! if i’m dreaming, why not go big, right? ๐Ÿ™‚
  • an elopement – it would be so special to shoot such an intimate ceremony.
  • a proposal – can you imagine the squeals of delight when the question would be popped? how awesome would that be to capture that emotion?!
  • an engagement session in nyc – seriously! i LOVE NYC!!! it would be so cool to explore the city more while doing a session! so much fun!
  • a wedding out west – i’m thinking, colorado! the mountainous view would be breathtaking! so gorgeous!
  • state fair engagement session – just imagine the ferris wheels, cotton candy, and the colors! that would be so fun!
  • an engagement session or elopement in the snow – after watching the episode of friends when phoebe gets married and it started snowing, oh my goodness! i have been wanting to capture a love story in the snow! how beautiful would that be? and it would be SO worth facing the cold! haha.

ย and what post would be complete without some inspirational pictures from pinterest! hopefully one day these dreams will be a reality!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

happy tuesday, yo! ๐Ÿ™‚



  • Dreaming big is what it’s all about, sister! In the very early stages of wedding planning, Jordan and I had toyed with the idea of eloping to Ireland and hiring a photographer. Keep dreaming big, lady!
