Wow. We've had a bunch of new friends join us over here on Instagram, we thought we'd say hi!
Hey! We're the Aller's, and Jake is probably whispering something inappropriate in Taylor’s ear in this pic.
We also believe in showing up big and not holding in your farts.
On most days you can find us juggling our handful-of-a-rescue dog, playing outside, work, and our passion project--The Relationship Project!
We're so honoured (and frankly amazed!) at how quickly @relationshipproject is growing and that you're joining this Fam who believe in authentic REAL-ationships, too.
We're all about showing behind the scenes and how realistic relationships can be amazing--especially with all their quirks and flaws.
Thanks for joining our Fam on Instagram, leave us a wave 👋🏻 in the comments and say hi!
(Yes, we're real people and would love to say hi 👋🏻 back atcha!)

Say YES!! Lets be really clear on this purpose/mission/entrepreneurial JOURNEY: Its not easy, or glamorous, or fun (at times). Many times I really want to QUIT and just say NO~ I'll go back to ONLY working my 9-5, and go home. The problem is that even when I want to give up, God will keep me up at night showing me how He wants me to work in the kingdom..then the questions of how, why, when begins 😏But even then, He always sends me someone who needs mentoring, or aligns me with someone who will hold ME accountable. HE then gives me a glimpse of my future..Oh yes-- it looks bright 😎 IF I remain obedient and stay on His path! 
So I encourage everyone reading this NOT to quit! Reach out to people. Start uplifting and encouraging others who are on the grind! Get to work and pray for DAILY strategies! Rest and slow down if needed, but NEVER QUIT! 
SAY YES!!! #tuesdaymotivation ♡

It’s been two magical years since Ross and I said “I do.” It feels just like yesterday that I was walking down the aisle. There are some days that I reminisce and wish I was back in that wedding dress.  But, then I realize the magic has really been in the two years after. .
.
The laughs, the love, the late night conversations, the gentle hugs, the smiles, Ross’ hand on my knee in the car, singing terribly together while trying not to crack up, exploring random places *just because*, watching shows the other despises because you kinda have to in marriage, the “stop leaving ketchup on your plate!” conversations, kisses on the forehead, and... realizing that the most incredible thing we’ll ever do is raise our little family together with a love that goes on and on.

Over the past week and a half I have driven over 1,500 miles, captured 7 fun, one-of-a-kind, adventurous couples, and have traveled all over Colorado. Yes, it's a lot when I say it like that - but all that time spent on my business also meant less time spent with this man.
.
Last night, Ben told it to me straight and said we need to focus on us and our marriage this week. He knows me. He knows my passion and drive. He knows I could keep running ahead at 100 mph without a second look.
.
But that's not what marriage is about. Marriage doesn't have a destination. It has seasons that all make up an important part of our love journey. And if I start missing what this crazy season is all about in our marriage, then I miss a big part of who we are as a couple.
.
It was hard to swallow, but I so appreciate Ben's ability to be honest and true with me when I need to slow things down and focus on US. Because, in all honesty, there would be no We, The Light Photography without him.
.
I struggle with focusing on the present - like really struggle with it. But this man keeps me grounded and focused on the most important things in life.
.
What season are you in right now? Is it one where you are giving time to the people in your life who mean the most? Or, like me, are you in a season where life is flying by at 100 mph and you need the reminder to pause, breath and give your presence to those closest to you?

We are absolutely in love with these vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, and the simplicity of the string lights. Just imagine all of the possibilities that could take place here. @brownbrothers is truly the perfect blank canvas for your wedding day.

Beautiful evening spent with the hubs walking the trail. Can't wait to explore more of it! 
#maine #centralmaine #mainelife #kennebecriver #riverrailtrail #rrtracks #datenight #realmarriage #nofilter #beautyinnature #river #beauty #kennebecriver
Such beautiful greens with unexpected pops of color along the trail. Plus tons of squirrels and chipmunks and we even saw a bald eagle fly over the river before we got officially started walking. Love it!

An old railroad signal. On the other side of the tracks runs the beautiful Kennebec River.

A guarantee to make our heart melt every time: The way he holds her hand + that golden light 🙌 "My  photography  style  is  based  on  an  effort  to  preserve  moments  and  tell  stories  humbly.

It was the summer before my sophomore year of high school. Mom & Dad were house hunting when they brought us along for one of the tours. I can picture the moment we first walked into that entry way like it was yesterday. It felt like home immediately. Flash forward a few months as I laid in my brand new bedroom for the first time on an air mattress staring at the glow in the dark stars the previous owners had left wondering what shape they created (to this day I have no clue - honestly i don’t think they were supposed to create one) and prayed for our time there. It’s been 14 years. 14 years of major life changing milestones that have happened in those walls. 14 years of some of the best memories. 14 years of some tough memories. 14 years of every day living and loving. Today, my parents and brother moved out of what I consider my childhood home. I may not have spent every single year there but i spent my biggest years there. Today, they moved out to start their new adventure. It’s going to look different. They’ll be empty nesters soon. & we are going to miss this warm cozy home on Haycarriage Court. Honestly, more than i realized until I turned onto the street this afternoon for the last time & the small tears welled up. So I lay here in my bed tonight, even further from my parents home than I was last night. Staring at a blank ceiling, praying over their new home & being excited for them and for us over what new memories and milestones this new house will hold for us! Change is hard. I’m such a lover of tradition but change is necessary & it’s good! #mcquaidclan #stramaraadventures

Today, @angedonofrio talks about planning a day and a marriage that you love.
-
“It’s easy to become so consumed planning a wedding that you forget you’re planning a marriage. Sometimes, all it takes is a step back, a deep breath and the simple recognition that flowers and fabric will not affect your longterm happiness. But a marriage — that’s something to invest a lifetime in.”

The waiter was right - it was a picture-perfect last bite. And even more perfect since it finished off an anniversary dinner that was almost postponed. Busy schedules accelerate around special occasions. But this evening we are happily content with a meal & a walk outside - a perfect bite of time together.

It's so easy to get caught up in the stuff that doesn't matter. Like everyone, we have good days and bad days and rough seasons and seasons that feel like they just flow. 🌊
.
He's the first person I want to tell when something great happens, and the first person I take it out on when it doesn't. 🤦🏻‍♀️
.
We send each other texts that make us laugh out loud, and a few that make us not want to talk to the other person for the rest of the day. It happens. Real marriage. Real life. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
At the end of the day, I'm just thankful he's my everyday. He’s my person.
.
When I think back to my dating days, what the wait and wondering felt like, and compare it to the now, my heart nearly explodes with gratitude.
.
Just last night I was sorting laundry and thinking to myself that there's no way I would've ever known that unique recipe of personality traits, strengths, weaknesses and tendencies that I needed in a partner. But I'm so thankful that God did. 🙏🏻

Thanks for helping me to grow into the version of me I’m becoming, @jhosch15.

I didn’t know at 22 what my ugliest parts would be. Marriage has this way of bringing forward all the pieces of us. It shows us who we really are. It undos us in a way that only He can put back together again. With grace upon grace, He takes those pieces and puts them back together in a way that was so much better than it was before. So so so grateful to be a part of the undoing and the getting re-pieced-together with this guy. Babe you are so much better than me in every way. You are the steady to my wild, the calm to my storm, the whiskey to my wine, the quiet to my loud, the ice cream to my cake, the home to my adventure. A lifetime with you will never be enough. Cheers to ten years my love.

“Pursuing goals, careers, and dreams alongside your marriage can be difficult to master. It takes selflessness, humility, and loyalty to your other half. You have to reset your mind and realise that there is more than just you on the team now and the benefits of a supportive partner far outweigh the time spent away from your own personal goals.” Read the full post from Kayla Carter today on the blog, featuring images from this incredible desert session from @rachel.b.photo

I remember the moment I first held hands with my husband, it was game over. .
We were just out of high school and had been “talking” for months, friends for years. Let’s just say I’d thought about what it would feel like many, many times before. My imagination came nowhere close.
.
The excitement, energy I felt that first time is indescribable. His hands were so warm, so strong, so soft and yet powerful and they were holding my hand. 😊 I knew then that I wanted it forever.
.
His hands are still my favorite part, to hold, to have hold, to touch and be touched. Years into “I do,” it’s not the same as that first time but the magic isn’t lost, it’s just different. More secure, more known, more loving.
.
It’s those moments I love capturing, those feelings of new and forever, excitement and comfort. Love is an ever evolving thing as we grow into it, each step a beautiful masterpiece of the mingling of souls.
.
It’s why I love what I do. Capturing this moment, telling your love story so you can one day look back and see how much you’ve grown.

Marriage means you are no longer the only seeker of your dreams. But learning to recognize and understand each other’s dreams requires time and effort. Read Kayla’s story of truth and encouragement today on the blog, with gorgeous images from @rachel.b.photo

Husbands too, deserve to be spoiled. Told they are handsome, sexy. Told their efforts are appreciated&should also be made to feels secure. If he’s doing his best to treat you like a Queen, do your best to treat him as a King. His need to feel loved&appreciated is just as real as yours.
Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all things they have longed for: companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc. The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. & people put love into marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art&form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.
My marriage? Up to now has been ok (nothing wrong with ok). BUT it’s a marriage-real, imperfect&difficult. With time it has evolved&truly only gotten better; more adventurous, exciting.
When I look in Andrew’s eyes, I don’t see perfection. I don’t see a love story that someone would watch on a big screen&dream about. I see someone who will fight for me&protect me&love me. 
Though “Happy Ever After” doesn’t look like it does in the movies, it does exist. It exists in the messy ups&down&highs&lows. It’s true. It’s the honest version of our fairy tale. I’m inlove with him more today than yesterday.
We have a good marriage. Just because our marriage is good, that doesn’t mean it’s not hard. When our marriage is hard, that doesn’t mean it’s not still good.
I’m lucky to have Andrew. Grateful to be his wife. Thankful to be the mother of our daughter. Blessed to spend yesterday, today&a gazillion more tomorrow’s with him. Love hard&often.
Handful of years back, I sadly would not have posted such a post; shit was rough! BUT I/we were different then as we both together are different now. I’m more than thrilled to have worked through it all to be where we are now today. Years from now we will be all the more different yet again but I know in my heart of hearts it will only be more fantastic than what we are now.
Husbands too, deserve to be spoiled. Told they are handsome, sexy. Told their efforts are appreciated&should also be made to feels secure. If he’s doing his best to treat you like a Queen, do your best to treat him as a King. His need to feel loved&appreciated is just as real as yours. Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all things they have longed for: companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc. The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. & people put love into marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art&form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty. My marriage? Up to now has been ok (nothing wrong with ok). BUT it’s a marriage-real, imperfect&difficult. With time it has evolved&truly only gotten better; more adventurous, exciting. When I look in Andrew’s eyes, I don’t see perfection. I don’t see a love story that someone would watch on a big screen&dream about. I see someone who will fight for me&protect me&love me. Though “Happy Ever After” doesn’t look like it does in the movies, it does exist. It exists in the messy ups&down&highs&lows. It’s true. It’s the honest version of our fairy tale. I’m inlove with him more today than yesterday. We have a good marriage. Just because our marriage is good, that doesn’t mean it’s not hard. When our marriage is hard, that doesn’t mean it’s not still good. I’m lucky to have Andrew. Grateful to be his wife. Thankful to be the mother of our daughter.

So, we made it to our first year without one of us going over the edge. 🤣 My husband drives me NUTS But somehow he also keeps me sane. I always say he’s my best friend and my worst enemy. 🤷‍♀️😂 Most people post about marriage as if it is the most beautiful thing ever. I sit back and laugh because I know first hand that marriage isn’t that pretty. They’ll have you thinking that it’s all fun, easy love, and the perfect answered prayer. But what they don’t say is sometimes it’s frustrating, tough love, and asking God “Why?” And “what do I do?” We walked in our marriage knowing that the ugly will come and that we will always have to work hard to get back to the beautiful. We are HUMAN and as long as that is so, we will never be perfect. However, I will say, it is amazing what EFFORT can do. The effort to pray, the effort try, the effort to understand, and the effort to ask for SENSIBLE advice because you’re not the only one (trust me). Sometimes God gives us our answers through our sisters and brothers and sometimes it’s just good to know that what you are experiencing is more normal than you think! Imperfections in marriage should not be a taboo topic because the sooner we understand the less intimidated we are by them. So, cheers to more years with my annoying ass, motor mouth, Mr. knowitall ass husband. May we continue to roast each other for years to come and may you never get tired of watching me twerk, or me randomly smacking your ass, or “cup checking” you in the most inappropriate places 🤷‍♀️🤣 it’s year two baby #gametime 
P.S this was my second wedding dress... I wanted to wear it again for my one year ❤️ #love #blacklove #blackmarriage #younglove #youngmarriage #marriedyoung #blacklovepage #wivesclub #wivesclubus #realmarriage #couplesgoals #marriagegoals #husbandgoals #wifegoals #goals

Tucked in the hills of a rustic Tuscan villa, surrounded by their closest family and friends, Adela and Mike said their “I dos" over a week-long wedding celebration.
-
They wanted it to be relaxed -- no stress, no hurry, no crazy wedding plans -- just a week long vacation with their closest friends and family. And on one of those days, their wedding just happened.

I haven’t spoken about it much here, but since I’m a firm believer in sharing our whole lives and not just the highlight reel, I should probably tell you that we’ve been in a stressful season over here.
Yesterday was yet again more stressful news, and with it came a fresh wave of emotions.
The details aren’t important, (or rather, they are, but this isn’t the place for a deep dive).
•
So we gathered our kiddos with us on the back porch and we prayed together. We decided as a family not to let our joy be stolen and then we cuddled on the couch and watched the Simpsons (their choice, not mine).
•
All night I felt the tide of negative thoughts creeping up but I firmly resisted them (something new I’m trying out) and I told myself:
“Tomorrow. 
Tomorrow you can lie in bed while they’re gone at school and you can feel your big feelings and screw productivity”.
•
But then tomorrow came and yes, if you must know it’s 11:03 and I’m still in bed
BUT
I’ve decided I’m not going to wallow. Not even for a day.
I’m going to throw on a hat and clean up yesterday’s mascara and I’m going to go meet my husband for a day date.
We’ll see a funny movie and we’ll eat some food and we’ll talk about what brought us joy this week because that is what we do on Tuesdays.
•
Sometimes the best thing we can do is nothing, except change our perspective.
And keep finding joy in all those little things that really are big.

White Magazine is just as much about the wedding day as all the days after, so we love how strongly @marriedbyjosh cares about the power and promise of marriage. Give him a follow to see more of his uplifting truths about love, intimacy and marriage.

8 years ago today we stood in a country church and made promises for better or for worse. 👰🏼🤵🏻 We have seen our share of the “worse” and it was probably even more than we expected to go through. But I am starting to see that our rock bottom was the best thing that ever happened to either of us. I’m THANKFUL for the pivotal moment and wake up call that we have allowed it to be. 🙏🏻
.
I’m so PROUD of you for being the honest man that you are - for being humble enough to own your mistakes and then strong enough to stay and fight for redemption. You could have taken the easy way out or at least coasted. But you didn’t - you have gone above and beyond to become the man that Jesus made you to be. That man is pretty damn incredible.💙 Thank you for the gift you have given our children by your example. You are by far my favorite transformation story. 😍
.
I feel so grateful to be in this place with you, 8 years in and can’t wait to see where the next 8 take us. I’m ready for a lot of the “better” part of those promises and I know it’s coming. Thank you for being my best friend, business partner, father to our kids and my biggest fan. You still are my favorite person and give me butterflies. Love you baby. Cheers to us! 🥂 .

The question if I use my own advice is asked often. When I speak to a client or even a friend regarding their marriage, I always give them the same insight that God has given me through the years🙏
Besides, I didn't have a "Wife Whisperer" to turn to back then.... lol ♡

We couldn’t have summed it up better ourselves:
-
“Marriage is a promise to always choose that someone who completes you, that someone that creates balance in your life and is an extension of you. Marriage is to stand by them no matter the argument or distance. Marriage is to join forces and create the life of your dreams!”

This coming week we will have been married 6 mnths ! SIX! I’d be lying if I said it was perfect, or if I denied that it has been so much harder a lot of times than I could’ve ever dreamed and that the road has contained huge bumps (literally ones on the head!)) that we didn’t expect to have to face right away... there has been more days than I care to admit where it’s been more surviving than thriving... but there also isn’t a day that goes by where I am not totally convinced he is the man god created for me (even when giving up feels like it would be easier for both of us!). He has the heart of a lion, courage enough to step into life’s scariest issues and go through them rather than run away even when it’s facing 4 moves in 5 months, a wife’s head injury, & old pain; he has shown me humility time & time again as he’s heard what I had to say without ever being defensive, owned it & got on his knees (& at times pulled me onto mine) and prayed for help when we haven’t been able to find our way; he has had faith that when I haven’t had the strength or the words or the hope that has carried me back to our lord.... nope it hasn’t been perfect & I don’t want to social media it up and paint these last 6 months as easy or painless as they’ve been some of the toughest We’ve known... but what a guy to have beside me in it all, what a man to wrestle with and become stronger and grow with, what a gift and what an incredible privilege to be this lion hearts wife. And to have a husband who chooses every day to keep loving me even when it costs him everything. Life & Marriage arent easy but I believe out of the ashes of these hard days we will yet see transformation & beauty like we have never imagined. God’s here! I just wanted to say all u, if anyone needs to know they aren’t alone in the hard mess of life... we r here too and we want to pray for u (just leave us a message or pm me) and we also want to hold onto the promise with  u the best is yet to come... So with that final thought can I just brag ? Did I mention my husband can even do handstand push-ups on the roof of  a truck ;)... oh those muscles ;p !!!!!! This is my #realmarriage #theoneforme #godisgood #hopealways

This is part of the relationship normally not meant for the gram.  Under the dryer, watching a movie with my boo. Is it sexy? Not really.  Is it real? Totally! Is it us?  Yep!! #realmarriage #cutehair #tomorrow #MyriadMarriage #myriadthatisme #natural #dryerChronicles #sleepy
Wheeee!!! We are boarded and on our way!

This is what #realmarriage looks like. We both like window seats.  And we'll both be in Paris soon enough,  so separate rows it is!
He doesn't like being in selfies. But I like taking them, so we work around it. (Expect a lot of goofy selfies coming.) #ilovemyhusband 
We are on our way to Europe,  for our dear friends' wedding @kathrinroloff  and B. In a castle. In Germany. #sofreakincool

While some couples might fear a little rain on their wedding day, this couple embraced it. And it made for the most romantic, breathtaking images along Byron Bay. Find out more about Haili and Cohen on the blog today and see more stunning coastal images from @figtreepictures

I always dreamed of being married to my best friend. God saw my dream, raised me a billion and gave me Warren. This guy is my rock, my biggest fan, my Jesus with skin on. Thanks to God, fantastic marriages do happen!

With the allure of the 1920s and the minimal touches of the modern bride, this styled shoot is for the quintessential cool and indie couple who are also drawn to traditional inspirations from eras past.
